The Met Office has warned the UK is braced for a heatwave this week, and if you’re anything like us you are wanting to prepare yourself as much as possible for the 36 degree heat.
While some may be investing in paddling pools to splash about in in their garden - and others are fearing for their pets - many will be on the hunt for a fan to keep them cool when the temperatures soar.
If you’ve got extra cash to spend, you might be interested in investing in Dyson’s top-rated designs.
But if you’re looking for something on a smaller budget, this is where the Generic 16 Oscillating Pedestal Fan comes in.
Why we rate it
The Generic 16 Oscillating Pedestal Fan is the ideal household, or office, appliance to help keep you cool over the summer months.
This affordable design is simple to use as it has three different speed settings in addition to its standard on/off button.
The electric standing fan measures 33cm in height - although it can be adjusted to suit your preference - and sits on a wheeled base. It’s super lightweight, coming in at just under 3kg.
What we love most is that it has been reduced in price from £49.99 to £12.99 on Amazon, which is perfect timing as the UK will heat up later this week.
What the reviews say
The Generic 16 Oscillating Pedestal Fan has received over 3,000 reviews from customers, with an average rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
Here’s what the say:
“It was assembled in about 15 mins... once assembled [it was] very easy to use. No instructions needed just three settings and an off button. Once the fan was on full speed it was letting beautiful cold air and the best thing about this fan it was so quiet I sometimes forgot it was on. Very good value for money.”
“In the recent heatwave we've been having, these are invaluable at ensuring a comfortable night's sleep. An absolute god-send for the summer, and a really good price for the pair. I would definitely recommend.”
“Nice fans, they are a great price and very easy to assemble. They keep our rooms [nice] and cool and they don't make too much noise which is perfect if you are situating them in a child's bedroom. Height range is good and it’s very easy to change the angle/ tilt of the fan head.”
“This arrived very quickly and was simple to put together. It's quiet and does a great job, as well as looking better than you might expect for this low price.”
“So glad we got these before the heatwave. They have been an absolute lifesaver. They’re quiet, sturdy and great value for money.”
