Our master bathroom does not have a heater vent in it. During both winter and summer months, we have always struggled w/ finding a way to get our towels to dry. Even hanging them single layered would result in a moldy smell w/in a few days. NO LONGER! This towel rack has completely eliminated this issue for us. The result is we save having to wash them as frequently, and therefore save both water and energy. We have programmed the system to warm a few minutes before we wake and then stay on for a few hours after our normal showering time. We regularly hang 4-5 towels on this warmer, two to a side and one on top of another. Layering speeds the drying of the towels and keeps them warm for use. You can hang your layers of towels fairly easily, though at first you have to get used to navigating the "hot bars;" they do get quite hot to the touch. The unit takes about 20 mins to fully warm your towels, but that is easy to accomodate w/ the timer that is included. We have found that keeping the unit on about 2 hours after showering is what we need to fully dry our 3+ towel use a day. As suggested in another review, we had a certified electrician install the unit. While a bit pricey, we have no regrets as this towel warmer has added style, comfort and practicality to our bathroom. We hang our robes on the verticle bar before we shower, and by the time we are out of the shower, our robe is also cozy. The timer is easy to use, program and toggle between manual and programmed times. If you're over 45 and need readers, you'll need them to read the tiny writing of the timer. That said, once you are familiar w/ the timer, you can do it w/o needing your readers. This towel warmer was a great purchase and value, even w/ the added cost of expert installation. It is both a luxury that you'll enjoy every day but also a practical, energy and water saving device. No more musty towels!
I've had this towel warmer for 5 months now, and I love it. The timer is a plus , I don't have to run it all day. It turns on prior to bathing and shuts itself off according to schedule. It's nice to have a warm towel after a shower. But don't expect it to be hot, it's not design to work that way. But you do get a warm towel. Also I've heard mentioned that the end with the wires is welded on a 90 % angle. That's the way it comes , there's a small set screw under the elbow just loosen it and turn it . Great product I would not hesitate to recommend this warmer.
Difficult to install. Lacking on correct advise on instructions. The Honeywell thermostat is not very good since you can't read the numbers on them. I would have rather paid a little more and got one that is more user friendly. It is not my eyes since I have 20/20 vision:) Now since the towel warmer is working properly I think I will enjoy it during the winter month. The towel warmer is well made.
We have been looking for options to buy towel warmers for our house. We compared different brands, styles and installation simplicity. When we came accross this product while browsing Overstock.com, it was a no-brainer, we purchased 2 of them. Not only the reviews for this product were excellent, which we completely endorse, but the towel warmer itself has completed our bathrooms with that extra touch. The timer function is extremely useful and installation is really a breeze. Great product and great delivery by Overstock.com!
We didn't use the timer that was included with the towel warmer since there is an on off switch on the bottom. We pretty much leave it on all the time so our towels are always warm dry and ready whenever we shower. It does get a bit hot to touch, but since we always have two towels on it that isn't a problem. It is nice to have the towels dry so quickly since this keeps them smelling fresh longer. The only complaint I have is the button on the bottom of the side rail. It is hard to tell if it is on or off during the daylight. If you hold your hand under it there is a red light shining on your hand if it's on. Much easier to see in lower light. I got this for my husbands valentine gift and he loved it even though he had to install it. We've been using it now for a few months and I can't imagine being without it now. Don't hesitate to purchase this - you won't find a better one at this price.
This was one of the first items that I bought on our bathroom remodel. It is the height of luxury to get out of the shower and have a nice warm towel. The unit was easy to install and was easy to use. I would recommend this to my friends and relatives.
Got Infinity towel warmer at such a good price at Overstock, compare to Home Depot. Installation took a few hours: the electrical outliet was not in the near proximity so we needed to get a wire through the bathroom wall. But overall, intructions were all right and we managed relatively painlessly. Everything is working and the towels are warm, which is a must here in Mass during the winter.
