I was lucky enough to receive a Dyson Cool AM06 300mm desk fan to road test over the past few weeks – thanks to Dyson and the Kids Business Bloggers BBQ – and I have to say that I’m seriously impressed.
As a mother of two – soon to be three – girls, safety is top priority for me when choosing home appliances.
Last year, I changed the pedestal fans being used in the girls’ bedrooms during summer to a box fan, not only because I find the pedestal fans quite bulky but more importantly for safety reasons.
However, the Dyson Cool fan is in a league of its own without any blades at all! This is particularly important to me with a baby on the way who will eventually be crawling and getting into everything.
The fan was extremely easy to set up as it comes packed in just two pieces. I had it together in minutes – you simply connect the head of the fan into the base and away you go! The unit is also extremely lightweight when moving it around.
The technology behind the bladeless fan is quite fascinating, but essentially air is drawn in at the base with internal blades creating air flow that is pushed out through a small slot around the rim of the fan.
I have to say that the Dyson Cool is the quietest desk fan I have ever used – Dyson claims it is 75% quieter than the previous fans it has produced, which makes it great to use in the baby or kids’ bedrooms. It is also meant to be 40% more energy efficient.
The unit offers 10 different air flow settings, which can easily be seen via a small LED display on the front of the unit, and it also has the option to oscillate. There is a sleep timer, which can turn off after intervals ranging from 15 minutes to nine hours.
All of these options can be set by using the small remote that is magnetised to neatly connect to the top of the unit to prevent it from being lost. The head can also be manually tilted up and down to direct air flow as needed.
Overall, I am very impressed by the Dyson Cool bladeless fan and the stylish design of the fan is an added bonus! But most of all, I just love that it’s kids friendly without any blades to cause harm to your little ones.
