A towel warmer is similar to a towel rack as both serve the same purpose of providing convenient place where towels can be hung for drying. The only difference is that a towel warmer has an extra function which is heating the towels. A damp towel on a towel warmer will dry at a faster rate than one on a standard towel rack. When a damp towel dries fast, chances of mildew are greatly reduced and this helps in keeping the towels dry and fresh.
The ultimate luxury of using a towel warmer is stepping out of the bathroom to a warm towel. This is by far considered a wonderful indulgence by many people and a healthy habit compared to damp cold towels. Also referred to as a drying rail, a towel warmer will come in different styles and designs. The warmer is designed to hold one towel and there are designs which are aimed at a number of towels. There are different models which are geared towards bathroom use and others are specifically meant for the kitchen.
Some of the warmers are powered by electricity while others use hydronic systems. Below are some reviews of the best towel warmers available in the market.
