Air purifier reviews

Last updated: 19 December 2019

Air purifiers are becoming a regular fixture in the home due to the latest fires in many parts of Australia, and some of them can filter smoke particles particularly well. Our industry experts comprehensively lab test and review leading air purifier brands like Dyson, Beurer and Blueair to help you find the best performers on the market. 

Why do we only have six models? We've tried to expedite the testing as quickly as possible due to seasonal conditions, but as a consequence we could only review a limited number of products on the market - and what was available at time of purchase. We have a bigger test in progress and will be publishing a more comprehensive review in March 2020. Be the first to know when the full review is available, sign up for our newsletter.
