I was looking into bathroom heaters, so thought I'd checked out the one from Holmes. I'd had an older model, but if finally gave out. The new one looks interesting, since it has a built-in timer. One of the selling points is "Use the timer to pre-heat the bathroom and keep it warm and cozy," which sounds good. The page on Amazon also notes -- "Bathroom safe alci plug for worry free bathroom use."
It all seems pretty good. The price is not unreasonable. I skimmed the user reviews, and they come across well, four stars. Fine.
Then I skimmed across the Product Description information that's provided by the company. And at the bottom of the list I saw the very last item that had me burst out laughing.
It says --
Okay, that has to be an error, I'm sure. Probably some sort of legal disclaimer that they put on everything by default at the insistence of their legal department. And they just overlooked removing it for this model -- because it's clear that the very point of this model is that it's meant to be a heater made specifically for the bathroom. But still...
