The Amba RWH-CB Radiant Hardwired Curved Towel Warmer is a powerful, high-quality warmer. It is made of 304-quality stainless steel with a brushed finish that looks gorgeous in any room.
It has ten curved crossbars arranged in two five-bar sets for maximum surface area contacting your towels. Its vertical and horizontal bars both reach full heat in about 15-20 minutes for speedy drying, although they are hot enough to be effective in about five minutes.
If you have children, this may not be the warmer for you because it gets very hot. It can certainly burn the skin if you touch it without towels covering it. Luckily, it has an easily accessible power switch, so you can keep it off when you are not using it.
This Amba Radiant model hardwires directly into your electrical box, so you do not need to dedicate one of your power outlets to the warmer.
It comes with a lovely matching cover plate to be installed where the wires enter the wall, so every inch looks sleek. The wires are located on the bottom right of the unit, which is where the cover plate will be situated.
It is about 24 inches wide, so it can fit in most any bathroom while at less than 32 inches tall, it could possibly be placed high enough on your wall so your children cannot reach it and burn themselves.
The curved bars cause the warmer to protrude nearly six inches from the wall, so you should avoid placing it behind a wall. However, the curved bars look elegant and allow for better air circulation behind the rack and let you fold your towels several times before placing them on the rack, so you can fit more items on the rack at a time.
In spite of how hot this warmer gets, it is surprisingly energy efficient. It only requires about 150 watts of energy to reach a temperature of up to 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
It utilizes heating cables to heat the steel rather than being filled with oil or water, so it will not leak.
This also allows the The Amba RWH-CB Radiant Hardwired Curved Towel Warmer to heat up quickly and cool down quickly, reducing your power costs and decreasing your chances of being burned by accidentally leaving it on.
However, unlike the oil-filled units, this The Amba RWH-CB Radiant Hardwired Curved Towel Warmer model will not provide any extra heat to the room, and cannot be used as a space heater.
If you frequently forget to turn it off and on, a timer can easily be installed to turn it on at a specific time, or to turn it off after a certain amount of time, so you don’t even have to think about it at all. It is UL certified, meaning it is completely safe of all fire hazard.
Those who have experience with hardwired electronics will have no difficulty installing the unit, but those who have never messed around with the wires behind their wall may get better results with less fuss by calling an electrician to install it.
An electrician can install a towel warmer very quickly and usually for a small cost.
The Amba RWH-CB Radian Hardwired Curved Towel Warmer is one of the best quality affordable towel racks on the market.
Made by Amba, a leading company in towel heaters, it is bound to deliver all that you want from a towel warmer and more. Just be careful as it can get hot!
