Aldi dupe of Dyson to hit shelves for $99

Aussie Aldi fans will soon have yet another reason to visit their favourite store.

The retailer is set to release a dupe of a Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner - and for a fraction of the price.

The Aldi version, priced at just $99, is virtually identical to Dyson's V7 Animal Handstick, a cult buy that sells for up to $399.

 

 

The cordless device - on sale as part of Aldi's February 5 Special Buys - features a large and small brush, a long crevice nozzle and a wall mount bracket.

Additionally, the rechargeable appliance offers 20 minutes run-time. This compares favourably with the Dyson model, which comes with 30 minutes run-time.

While Aldi's Special Buys tend to be hotly anticipated events, they often descend into mayhem whenever the retailer offers a version of a popular item.

In August last year, Aldi offered shoppers a dupe of a Thermomix, which was priced at an affordable $299.

Its Mistral Thermo Cooker featured a two-litre stainless steel bowl, 800 watt motor and 1000 watt heating power as well as 10 different speeds.

A steamer unit, chopping blade, mixing tool and recipe book were also included.

In contrast, the 20-function Thermomix TM6 retailed at the time for $2269.

While Aldi's version of the cooking device didn't come with as many features, it certainly ticked a lot of boxes when it was shared on Markdown Addicts Australia on Facebook.

Eagle-eyed shoppers noted the product had previously been sold at Big W and Spotlight and recommended it as a cheaper alternative to the pricey Thermomix.

"I got this one from Big W a few years ago. Not 100% the same but good for the price," one shopper commented.

"3 year warranty is good! Better than Thermomix!" one person wrote while another added: "I own this (Aldi version of Thermomix) and it is awesome!"
