Does the job.
I bought this at the beginning of winter. It did a great job of warming up a lounge/dining area. Nice and quiet, no smells, but it definitely pushed my quarterly electricity bill up a good $150.00. Worth it, though!

Great lil heating appliance
Just got a model of this heater, I have a small lounge/kitchen combo room with high ceilings, its doing the trick already and heating up my day room really fast- yup a leg come off mine too, but found a longer and similar sized screw and it fit, so no more leg issues, love the heating ranges....

Very good Heater
We found it really good. We do not need to switch on the heater for the whole house instead we have it in the bedroom and it heats up the room very quickly and effectively.

Faulty leg, weak heating
Brought 3 in preparation for winter 2020 I opened 1 box for my home office that’s about 6sqm on the highest setting it failed to heat the space so turned it off after an hr.
The screw holding the leg in place is so tiny the legs just fall off.

Excellent heater, warms quickly & great value
Purchased this heater based off reviews and the price and it surly did not disappoint, it was easy to attached the legs which seem solid (you need to make sure you attach the screws straight). Once turning on there is an instant heat within seconds, this heats our mid sized bedroom very quickly, however in our large open kitchen/living area it does take quite a while to take the chill off the space, but this is to be expected given the room size. We previously had a target convection heater at this masiivly out performs that heater, it is an extremely good heater for the price.

Small heater, Big impact!
After our central heating broke and our inability to find someone to fix it quickly we opted for two of these little dynamos!
I was at first surprised at how small they were and was apprehensive about whether it would actually heat the space.
One heater was set up in the master bedroom (approx 4.5m x 5m, plus en-suite) and the other in a secondary living area (approx 3m x 6m with opening to stair well).
On the hottest setting the bedroom was really cosy within about 20 minutes, at which point the heat had to be turned down. On a few -3 de...gree nights the heater was left on overnight on medium setting with great results. The heat is even spreading to the en-suite and walk in robe if the doors are left open. In the living area the heater has been on the medium setting most days (even the cold cold days) and it has been super effective as well, warming the space evenly and comfortably.

Does the job
Easy to use with a few levels of heat. Bought it for the spare bedroom and it heats the room quickly and stays warm. I also have the issue of the legs coming off. It took a few uses before the new smell disappeared but now it’s not noticeable. There is the option of using a wall mount but I am renting and I can’t try that. I don’t move it around much so I just balance it on the legs in its spot. The electricity bill skyrocketed after buying and using this last winter! Now we only use it for the coldest mornings/nights.

Legs are issue
Bought this for bathroom. Extremely quiet heater. Warms up enough in a small room. Biggest issue is attaching legs. Have seen many reviews with same issue. Screws are hard to get into really tight and awkward spot. Had to get my brother with electric screw driver to put them in and even then legs still feel wobbly and not very secure. Really bad design on this part.
Would be great if the legs were stable!
Heating wise- fantastic!
Only takes a few minutes to heat up my daughters room. It’s definitely small but mighty! We only need to put 1 bar on level 2 and it’s warm enough all night for a Brisbane winter.
Massive down fall is the legs!!
You screw them in with the tiniest screws imaginable mind you and then the smallest bump the legs fall right out!!! With one bump the tiny plastic dowels broke straight off!!
This should come with hard set legs with NO assembly and this would of been a 10/10 review! I’m second thinking to even have this in my daughters room now! Just in case something were to happen.
Best thing ever!
Bought it for $49 only and it works like magic since day one.
It's extremely quiet and gentle and heats the room fast and evenly. Unlike a noisy fan heater, I hardly notice its existence. Definitely a good buy. Would recommend it.
Didn't notice any of the wobbly feet issue someone mentioned at all. As long as you screw them on properly, it's fairly stable.
quite good, get warm quickly
Recently bought a delonghi convection heater, easy to carry and move it as its weight is so light, heating power is strong and get warm quickly, so convenient, also the cable is long enough for you to move it always without changing to other socket in your room. If it has a indication light, that would be better.
Does what it says on the box
I bought this one for my mother-in-law. Temps dropped sub 10deg in SEQ and with no heating in her bedroom we needed a quick cheap solution as it'll be back to hot in a few weeks so there was no need to go for an expensive option. I picked this one up for $45 at GoodGuys and I have to say it's not bad.
It says on the box that it's rated to heat 20sqm which I can confirm it does more than adequately, in fact her bedroom which is exactly that size was toasty warm in no time at all so it's a good buy if you're looking for some cheap heat.
Working without a prob
We bought it from Bunnings 3 weeks ago, and have been keeping it on basically 24/7, it's been working without any problems so far. It gets warm very fast, light and easy to move. The only inconvenient thing I can think of is the numbers showing heat level are not colored so it's a bit hard to find out how warm it is.
Questions & Answers
Can you leave it on overnight?
I’m looking for an economical small heater for my mother, how does this one go for that?
Anita, I live in a 1 bedroom city apartment, open plan lounge and kitchen, high ceilings. I have a small convection heater and use only 1 bar mostly, but I got this little Delonghi to heat up a small part of the open plan area that was cold and it warms up the whole lounge and kitchen beautifully. Worth the investment of the small outlay for the cost. 8/10 rating by me.
Does this heater have a fan built in to help with heat distribution?
NO it has heated elements on the bottom of it and the heat is pushed up to the top and outwards...literally in seconds it does that...i got one cos I have a convection heat and the elements are exposed, its also like a panel heater that if it gets k nocked ova its not going to burn the carpet, and its easy to move around....
