A week ago, I wrote an article here about a bathroom heater I was thinking of buying, and how on the product's Amazon page they hilariously note for this bathroom heater a warning that "This heater is not intended for use in bathrooms." (It is intended for bathroom use, they just left that legal disclaimer in by mistake.)
I just wanted to update you on the tale. I ended up buying the Holmes Bathroom Heater, and it showed up two days later. Not shabby during the holiday season when you've chosen the Free Shipping option, rather than pay for the expedited two-day shipping...
The heater is great. Not because it's especially grand as a heater (it's fine), but because it has something rare, if not unique for a heater. I assume some other models in the world have this, but I haven't come across them. Not that I scour the earth for heaters, mind you. What it has is a built-in timer. So, in the morning now, when I used trudge through my home and end up on the cold bathroom floor in bare feet in the cold bathroom, I now set the timer for about 10 minutes before my bedroom clock-radio alarm goes off. The bathroom heater goes on, and by the time I make my way there, the bathroom is now toasty warm. O joy! Hubba.
If you look closely, you can see the LED clock display above the red-ringed dial. And that button on the far right is where you set the alarm -- one of the few times I take great pleasure writing something about the far right.
Mind you, for the past several days Los Angeles has had a bit of a heat wave, so there's been no point in using a heater at all, anytime, let alone just in the morning. But I have confidence that the temperature will drop again. Unless, of course, the whole Climate Change thing keeps kicking in.
For thems what might be interested in such things, you can find the heater here).
