Dyson released a heater that it says can’t burn you. The company claims it can also heat a room faster than any heater currently on the market, and it doesn’t have that “burning smell”. Like all Dyson products, the heater comes with a relatively high price tag, but creator and namesake, James Dyson, says “people want something that will last, rather than something cheap that they will have to throw away after a short time. We’re appealing to somebody who wants to keep the product and have it provide pleasure over the years.”
Shh, no one tell James Dyson about the existence of furnaces.
I’m going to hold out for the model that can also make me pancakes. Fingers crossed.
