Are Towel Warmers Worth It?

  Oshiklenz   Jun 17, 2020   News   0 Comment


I’m sure you’ve heard about towel warmers and wondered whether towel warmers are worth it, but never had the time to do any research and find out whether or not they could be useful in your business. That’s understandable since towel warmers are often considered an unnecessary accessory by some. However, when you get to know more about towel warmers, you may change your opinion.

Basically, a towel warmer is an appliance used in salons, restaurants, dentists, etc to help store hot towels and keep them at the ideal serving temperature. This article will discuss the merits of investing in this piece of equipment.

Some people argue that towel warmers are unnecessary since you can just simply pop your towel into the microwave and it’s good to go. While this may sound true, it’s not really the case. Microwaves don’t heat evenly, so a Hot towel heated in the microwave will have hot and cold spots. Externally the towel may be hot but as you unroll the towel the centre is cold. The opposite is also true, and this is where it’s a real danger. The towel feels like the right temperature on the outside but when your customer unrolls it, the inside is extremely hot and can cause injury.

Here are some reasons why investing in a towel warmer is a good decision and why towel warmers are worth it:


Unlike microwave ovens which are bulky, towel warmers are space-saving with a very small footprint. They can be stored in any discreet part of your establishment for easy access. Our towel warmers are Japanese made, where the focus is on quality and where space is at a premium.

Ease of Use

Contrary to what you may expect, towel warmers are so easy to use. All you have to do is plug it in and turn it on, then you can forget about it for the whole day. They are also built very simple. For example, Oshiklenz  Hot Towel Warmers don’t require water and have no moving parts. So you don’t have to worry about a complicated maintenance program or difficult setup protocols. 

Easy to Clean

Towel warmers are a breeze to maintain. For super-easy cleanup, all you have to do is wipe it out with some dry paper towels or a dry cloth at the end of the day to absorb moisture and prevent odour. That’s it! And it will be ready to be used the next day. 

No Wastage

Towel warmers are designed for one task only – to heat towels, so they are very cheap to run, easy to maintain, and won’t overheat or dry out your towels. This ensures no wastage.

The Goal

While you can also provide hot towels to your customers by pouring hot water over towels, it’s important to remember why you decided to have hot towels in your business.
