Dyson AM02 Mini Tower Fan - Performance, Value and Verdict



Dyson AM02 Mini Tower Fan Performance

The ‘Mini’ aspect of the Dyson AM02 Mini Tower Fan does not seem to have had a negative effect on performance. It packs a considerable cooling punch. The cooling effects of the fan can be felt from one side of a 7.5m room to the other with little loss of power.

A control dial lets you customise the ferocity of the airflow with intricate precision. From a gentle whisper of air capable of blowing bubbles (see below) to a full on gale, the AM02 Mini covers the full range.

It can get a little noisy though, especially when cranked up to higher rates of airflow. That said, we used the AM02 Mini to cool a room where we were watching TV, with just a couple of clicks of volume needed to turn the fan into distant background noise. Used in our bedroom it didn’t trouble sleep.

The lack of buffeting is one of the main draws of the costly Dyson air multiplier range. The smooth, unabated airflow provided is welcome on stifling days or when looking to be cooled quickly, say after a run or exercise session. Strangely, we found ourselves quickly becoming fan snobs when switching back to a convention bladed option. Buffeted air is not a problem until you have experienced the alternatives.

A wide oscillation range can be activated via the on fan controls or through the remote. It covers a near 180-degree angle, spreading the cooling effect across whole rooms rather than specific parts.

Should I buy the Dyson AM02 Mini Tower Fan?

The Dyson AM02 Mini Tower fan fits a specific market and will not be suitable for all. If you’ve got a fair chunk of spare cash and find yourself frequently clammy, though, then it is an obvious choice.

For a large roomed home or small office environment, the latest air multiplier is a good fit. It makes the most of the increased open space and can supply sufficient cooling to fill it. For smaller homes, however, even Dyson itself offers better value products than the AM02 Mini. For an extra £50 more you can add dual heating and cooling capabilities in the form of the Dyson Hot & Cool. This will even be of use through all four seasons.

Price is always a difficult with Dyson but you do get what you pay for: power, performance and style.


The Dyson AM02 Mini Tower Fan is ideal for either a larger home or small office environment. It’s capable of kicking out a considerable amount of cooling air in a stylish and unassuming manner. However, there is no getting away from its sizeable price tag.
