Dyson Air Multiplier Review Christmas in July

dyson logo

You have likely heard of Dyson Vacuum cleaners by now.   The story of James Dyson, the inventor,  is a fascinating one.   If you don’t know it, I encourage you to read it just to give you hope and inspiration in your passion.  Dyson has invented a unique fan called the Dyson Air Multiplier.  They are a bit funny looking too.


October 2006 Dyson launched the Dyson Airblade, a fast hand dryer. The Dyson Digital Motor produces an air stream flowing at 400 mph. This unheated air is channeled through a 0.3 millimetre gap. A sheet of air acts like an invisible windscreen wiper to wipe moisture from hands.

Dyson’s recent addition is a fan which is seemingly without blades, which he calls ‘Air Multiplier’. The illusion is created by moving the blades into the stand and channeling air through a hoop with a gap. The air flow through the bottom of the stand is “multiplied” three different ways in the fan structure. The first way is when the air flows over a wing like structure in the fans ring. It is further multiplied when it passes over the cone shape, also in the fan ring. Both of these create negative pressure and pulls the air around the fan through it. The final multiplication step is through viscous shearing when the air leaves the fan ring. The moving air shears through, and pulls in, yet more air flow; hence the 16-times multiplied air.  (credit Wikipedia).

I don’t really understand the technical stuff mentioned above, so I am going to give you a moms view of the Dyson Air Multiplier.


NO BLADES! I am excited that Mr Dyson thought of small children and was able to build a fan that doesn’t have them.

Easy to clean. It takes forever to clean each blade in most fans and a hassle to take them apart to do it. This fan is a mom’s dream.

Quiet except when on highest setting it is a little bit loud.

Rotating and tilting features.

Powerful.  I can feel the fan across the room.


The price is a bit hefty but if they prove to be as long lasting as the Dyson Vacuums it would be worth the investment. I would definitely buy one if I had the funds. Plus you can’t put a price on the safety factor.

My six year old Nolan and I made a video to show you just how the Dyson Air Multiplier works.  This review is for the 10 inch fan.



Everyone that has been to our home have gone straight to the Air Multiplier. It is very cool to watch.  I sold my dad on it and he is going to buy one. My father in law was just as impressed.

You can purchase Dyson Air Multipliers in different sizes and prices on their website and from retailers like Target and Best Buy.  The new size tower and pedestal fans will be exclusively available from Dyson.com late summer of 2010.  Don’t forget to get a vacuum while you are there!

    I’m amazed by how quiet this is. Besides the safety of not having blades, it will also save time cleaning! It’s such a pain to dust fan blades.

  2. This fan looks great. I also like the fact that it does not have blades because having kids you worry about the young ones with putting fingers where they do not belong, and yes the blades are not always fun to clean.

  3. That looks awesome! No blades is a huge plus in my mind. It also looks really nice. It looks like it would blend in better with our decor than a regular fan.

    I love this>> think I will want a floor model! I have Standard Poodles with long hair and long noses>> good for them too

  5. Lauralee Hensley says:

    I have a Dyson vac and love it, but the Air Multiplyer was too expensive for this family. I’d love to have it, but there are budgets to stay within too.

  6. Cheryl Greenleaf says:

    You and Nolan did a wonderful job of showing off the features of the Dyson Air Multiplier. I was impressed by the slick way Dyson incorporated the tilt and rotate features into the tower. Two thumbs up!

  7. Jeff Legg says:

    I have seen these and would love to have one. I have a special needs child and we won’t use a fan due to fear that he will stick his fingers in it. One of these air multipliers look like they would be perfect!

  8. I love that there are no blades for dust to sit on! They are so modern and neat looking! Would love to get one!

  9. I like the fact that it is a quiet fan! And no blades is def. a plus.

  10. Christina says:

    I don’t really understand how this works but it seems quiet and effective! I’d love to have this fan!

  11. Dyson is such an awesome company I hope they keep coming out with new products.

  12. Christie says:

    I read reviews on it that said that it’s a fan in the base, that pushes the air out the top part. Do you agree with that?

  13. this thing just might revolutionize the fan market. love the name. i wan to try one!

  14. We are in big time need of a vacuum, my husband seen the dysons in walmart one night but then seen the price and looked the other way. I would be more then willing to spend that on a vacuum if I new it would last.

  15. I’ve heard about this, and I love this new concept of bladeless fan – safe and easy to clean. I think the price is the only concern, but it’s an investment

  16. I saw a demo of the air multiplier at Bed, Bath, and Beyond recently, and I really was “blown away” by how powerful but yet how quiet this gadget is. The folks at Dyson really are innovators!

  17. Juliana A says:

    I wish I owned one of these

  18. Very informative, thanks!

  19. I wanted one of these before I saw your review, and now I’m lusting after it! Thanks!

  20. I was so amazed by this when I first saw it on TV, now after the review I really want this. Even though our summer here has been pretty cool and hasn’t really warranted the need for a fan.

  23. I remember when I first saw these, I checked them out and they are cool! My son asks for one of these all the time 😀

  24. No blades?! I want to see one in real life!


  26. Peggy Gorman says:

    I love the style of this awesome fan! I would love to stand n front and catch a breeze! It looks so different!

  27. These are pretty cool, my son has been bugging me to get one for awhile now! I love that our animals can’t get hurt by it 😀
