A towel warmer today can take many forms. It can be a container that holds towels and warms them keeping them warm for the time lengths you set with the digital temperature setting feature. Times can be set in fifteen minute intervals, 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes. These represent how long the towels will remain heated.
With a 480 watt heater towels can reach 120 degree Fahrenheit. They can reach this temperature in 10 minutes. Two towels can reach 120 degrees in 18 minutes. Towel containers are heated with electric current.
Heated rails can also heat towels either by electrically generated heat or using hot water running through the rails. The containers and the rails can also be used to hang robes and towel robes. Not only can they hold these pieces of clothing, but the towel heater can also be used as a clothing heater too. Now, after drying off with your warm towel, you can reach for your warm robe too.
