Everything but the kitchen stink: The new Dyson Pure Hot+Cool fan heater reduces cooking odours

There’s something lovely about being greeted by the smell of your favourite dinner when you walk through the door after a long day at work.

While food smells can instantly remind us of happy childhood memories, holidays in the sun or simple home comforts, there’s a certain cut off point that must be observed.

For example, if you made a salmon stir-fry on Saturday night, you do not want the same smell lingering in your home when you wake up on Sunday morning.

However, food odours can be hard to get rid of. In fact, certain food smells may stay in your kitchen for days at a time.

So, how can you enjoy cooking all your favourite meals without having to worry about the kitchen stink?

Well, thankfully there is a way to reduce odours. The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool purifier fan heater removes 97pc of cooking odours1 which means that you can cook up a storm without having to worry about certain lingering odours. Here’s everything that you need to know.

What exactly is it?

The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool purifier fan heater can be used year round. So, while it delivers fast and even room heating in winter, it can also provide you with a cooling jet of air in the summer.

With thermostat heat control, the machine automatically keeps your room at the target temperature. The heating function will automatically switch to standby mode once the target is reached and will switch back on once it senses a drop in temperature.

How does it reduce kitchen smells?

This is the cool science part. Dyson Pure Hot + Cool purifier fan heaters don’t just heat the room or provide you with a cooling jet of air; they also purify the air in your kitchen.

That’s due to the pretty cool technology that is going on inside each machine. Dyson engineers have designed a fully-sealed filter system that combines an activated carbon filter to remove gases and a glass HEPA filter that captures 99.95pc of microscopic allergens and pollutants as small as 0.1 microns.2 That’s pretty impressive!

What else do they do?

Dyson fans don’t just reduce smells, because of their purifying technology, they also filter pollutants out of the air. While you might think that the air you breathe in your home is clean, this isn’t always the case.

In fact, according to a study by Hulin et al, indoor air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoor air quality. Because our houses tend to be more sealed these days, pollutants and allergens can't always escape but they can be captured.

Dyson fans rotate to 350 degrees and the machine can project over 290 litres of purified air per second to every corner of the room.3

How can I check the air quality in my home?

Using lasers, the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool purifier fan heater automatically detects indoor airborne particles and gases and simultaneously reports to the new LCD screen and Dyson Link app in real time.

Available for iOS and Android, the Dyson Link app enables you to track indoor and outdoor air quality temperature and humidity levels. You can also use it to control your machine and see how many hours of filter life you have left.
