Our favourite budget supermarket, Aldi, is selling an electric heater with a wood-burning stove effect for £59.99 – and we think it's perfect for the cold winter months. Is there anything better than cosying up in front of an open fire? Unfortunately, not many of us have the luxury of owning a fireplace, but you can now fake a wood-burning stove with the Aldi electric heater.

As temperatures drop and energy costs rise, you may be searching for ways to keep your house warm in winter without your running expenses dry. This electric heater will keep you warm on a budget during the gloomy winter months, whilst adding a rustic and stylish finishing touch to any living room.

The Aldi electric heater comes in black, boasting a lattice pattern over the faux stove door. Behind the door is fake coal that begins to glow red, like the embers of a roaring fire, when switched on. It's available to pre-order right now on the Aldi website for £59.99 and will be available to purchase in-store from the 8th of January.

The heater has two heat settings and thermostatic temperature control which allow you to easily regulate the temperature. However, it is not just the heat settings that are fully adjustable, you can also adjust the flame effect with the dimmer function. You can easily adjust the brightness of the flames to give the feel of a cosy fire.

As always with Aldi, the best part, as well as the stylish look, is the price. Costing just £59.99, the Aldi electric heater is one of the cheapest of its kind compared to other retailers selling similar models – so we think it's a steal for the colder winter months.

The only thing you will need to bear in mind is that, unlike a real stove or fireplace, you will need to plug the Aldi electric heater in. So bear that in mind when planning the new centre-piece in your living room.

Keep your eyes peeled on the middle aisle to snatch this heater up for yourself, or head over to the website now to avoid disappointment.
