This rack keeps our towels dry and fresh and looks great on the tile wall. Before we installed it in our remodeled master bath room we had a problem with no air circulation and mildewed towels smelling after one day of use. We also installed the optional timer (a must have) and our towels are dry and fresh each morning which saves money and time on cleaning them. Wouldn't live without it! Dan and Lisa Peters, Tacoma, WA
We had wanted a chrome look to match the other fixtures. This product comes in a steel finish, looks great. Other brands charge extra for a chrome-look finish and cost more to start with. If we had known better we would have ordered with the electric box on the left, would have saved us some patching and plastering of additional holes.
Good for warming a max of two med bath towels or one large bath towel. Takes about 20 minutes before the rails are warm enough to be effective. So a little preplanning needed to take advantage of this little luxury. I bought the brushed nickel finish. Seems well built, I had a contractor install during a bathroom remodel, and I think it will be good value for money although a little smaller unit than some I have experienced before.
This towel warmer could probably warm ONE towel; however, I use 2 and there is not enough room for 2 towels. Also, I thought the towels would be warmer. As soon as I fold them to heat both towels, only the towel that hits the bars is warm. It does not heat through. By the way, I have the warmer on continuously.
The towel bar looks really nice in the powder room. It only took an hour to install (wish we knew how to install ourselves, but we're not so handy). Our towels are kept nice and warm and the bar adds a bit of a sleek look in a small space. The timer adds a great touch.
Instead of buying 1 large towel warmer, for just a little more we purchased 2 smaller ones and it works great for our lifestyle. We did it as an over under and is only 4" taller than the next size up. Of course we had to get 2 timers as well, so for about $70.00 we have a better system for us and the smaller size has a higer temp. than the larger one. There is no templet for mounting so this is the hardest part of mounting. The four mounting points AND screws on the hard wire cover must line up perfect. Advise you to make one.
