I have an oil filed radiator, made by THE famous DeLonghi Dragon Company, but recently my Daughter bought a copy. I thought this was a mistake, and said she should have gone for a more reputable make. It seems however, that I may be mistaken, as this particular one is very good.

The heater is fitted with castors, so it can be moved from room to room. The castors are very basic, but do the job as long as you are careful not to tip the heater over. The castors are included with the heater, but do have to be fitted yourself, this is a very simple job.

It can be very tempting to hang clothes over it to dry, but of course this is very bad practice. You may decide to place clothes on it as soon as you have turned it off, and these will dry very quicky, but please make sure you unplug it. The Guarantee is just the one Year, and the only moan I have, is that the mains lead is a tad too short. The instruction booklet is small, but does contain all the information you will need.

The heater can be stored against a wall, and takes up very little room. It is white, so matches any decor, and I must say it is rather attractive. There is a fitting you can wind the cord round for storage, and the complete unit is designed with no sharp edges, so you will not be catching your clothes on it. The heater is light enough to carry upstairs, and because of it's small size, it gets hot very quickly.

I can only say I wish I had found this one before I spent what I imagine to be a lot more money on mine. I don't know exactly how much my Daughter paid, but it would not have been much.

I can thoroughly recommend these heaters.
