Towel warmer Heating Time

Electric towel warmer heating time

The time it takes for a electric towel warmer to heat to the desired temperature depends on the internal heating system.

   Some towel warmers heat by way of a new, patented technology that uses thick wire cables throughout the unit (both vertical and horizontal bars)  and takes only 15 minutes to heat up, regardless of the size of the unit.  Amba ( a leading manufacture of towel warmers) uses this technology in most of their collections.  Other towel warmers are heated with thin wire filaments.
   Another process for heating the units is to use a heating element that heats a glycol-water mixture (similar to antifreeze) the unit is filled with.  This in turn heats up the horizontal and vertical bar, beginning iwth the top bars and working its way down.  Units like this take between 15 minutes to 1 hour to heat up to their top temperature, depending on the size of the unit and other parameters.

 Note:  The temperature of the room, the size of the room, and whether the unit is placed near a vent will all have an effect on the time it takes to heat the towel. is a family owned business that specializes in selling electric towel warmers.

OnlyTowelWarmers was superb

OnlyTowelWarmers was superb, great customer service and a great price. I highly recommend them.

Great product at a fantastic price

This is our 2nd Mr Steam towel warmer for our new home. Ordering was very easy and the telephone support for the sale was exceptional. The warmer and the towel hook were both shipped directly from the manufacturer the following business day and they arrived in perfect condition 2 days later. Plus the price was the best I found online and since shipping was included, the price, the service, and the support made this an unbeatable deal.

Bottom line- I looked around before deciding on buying here, but I'm glad I found and give them a A+ recommendation


The Runtal Radia RTREG-2924 Plug In towel warmer was exactly as advertised, sizes were exact on the mounting holes and it shipped more quickly than advertised. I would recommend and plan on shopping here again.

Highly recommended

We bought an AMBA Jeeves Model D towel warmer from onlytowelwarmers. The towel warmer is beautiful and very functional.
When we purchased the item, we were told that the towel warmer was out of stock and would be available in about a month and half.
the towel warmer was delivered as promised, in addition to the best price out of 3-4 providers we contacted.

We recommend both the specific AMBA towel warmer and, a good business to deal with!

Personal Service

When I placed my order, I forgot to fill in the color on one of the towel warmers. When I realized my mistake, and before I could do anything about it, I was contacted by the head of the company to clarify the color on the second unit. I don't expect that kind of personal attention and service from an online company of any size. The units arrived on time and in good condition, and they sent me an email informing me that the units had been delivered. That, too, is helpful, as sometimes I forget that I've ordered something, so I'm not aware that it should have arrived and didn't. Their prices were also the best I could find, so I was very pleased.
