It’s strange, and I’ll be the first to ad­mit it, but air qual­ity was not one of my top con­cerns grow­ing up. We suf­fered through years of un­com­fort­able si­nuses and red-nose-morn­ings with­out a sin­gle thought as to why that was. And when I even­tu­ally moved into a home of my own and set­tled into my own state of pedan­tic clean­li­ness – much to the cha­grin of my long-suf­fer­ing mother, who would likely have ap­pre­ci­ated that when I was a teen – it be­came more and more ev­i­dent that air qual­ity was of ut­most im­por­tance.

Air fresh­en­ers, scented can­dles, fra­grance dif­fusers, and room sprays soon be­came a thing in my adult home. De­light­ful though they were to build­ing a per­son­alised space, how­ever, none of these were the an­swer to the ques­tion of the ages: is this air ac­tu­ally good to breathe, and will my open-con­cept kitchen-cum-liv­ing space ever stop smelling like chilli stir fry?

The long and short an­swers are no, and yes – with the right equip­ment.

With this in mind, I looked to the Dyson Pure Cool air pu­ri­fier to see if it would in­deed be the con­trap­tion for the job. Over the course of a week, I put my unit to hard work. From where it sits, flush in the cen­tre of my kitchen­cum-liv­ing space, pol­lu­tants from both the bal­cony and the stove are in am­ple sup­ply.

As a whole, I have to ad­mit that I was im­pressed by the ef­fi­cacy with which the Dyson dis­pelled pol­lu­tants in the air. Smells dis­si­pated within a mat­ter of mo­ments. The most of­fen­sive of these: a heav­ily-spiced and smoky curry which was vir­tu­ally erased in 10 min­utes.

While there is much to laud about the Dyson, I would ad­vo­cate for qui­eter op­er­a­tions ; at its max­i­mum 10, the fan does give off a sense of kitchen-hood en­thu­si­asm, both in suc­tion power and in sound. How­ever, it’s a small price to pay to keep the smell of food off the throws and couch.
