Dyson Pure Cool Link

Despite its name, this isn’t something that will cool you down in the hot Indian summer, and so it is best used alongside an AC

Dyson's pure cool Link fan-meets-air-purifier takes a rather elegant approach to the process of air purification, one that has parallels in the brand’s iconic bladeless fans. It pulls air through a fine mesh filter and passes it through a 360-degree HEPA filter, which takes care of any pollutants, pollen, dust and other irritants that are larger than 0.1 microns. Activated carbon in the filter cleanses the air of smells and chemical pollutants, and the clean air is then pushed out through a tall paperclip-like loop, all the while directing the air forward with force and sucking air through the back of the loop as it does so, amplifying the airflow. The result? Clean air, with none of those choppy air waves produced by fans with blades.

What you see though is this incredible halo-like design that is certainly a conversation starter, particularly the blue and grey model. It’s a Dyson product, which means built quality is exceptional and the pricing is on the premium side. You control the Pure Cool via a small infrared remote, or you could hit the auto button which senses the air quality and switches on the air purifier as and when required. The curved remote attaches magnetically to the top, which is a nice touch. If you connect it to your Wi-Fi, you can also pair it with the companion Link app for Android/iOS, which then lets you see information on current air quality and filter life (reminding you to swap one out with a reasonably priced (Rs 2,690) replacement) and set schedules for the air purifier to run. You can even turn on the Cool Link from anywhere in the world, should you wish to. Yet, despite its name, this isn’t something that will cool you down in the hot Indian summer, and so it is best used alongside an AC. And it is not as powerful as some of Dyson’s other fan models; you will have to turn it up high for a relative strong airflow across the room. Ergo, it takes some time to clean up a mid-sized room.
