We like the inclusion of the patented safe touch technology that provides users with children or pets comfort in the knowledge that should hands start wandering towards the grill, they’ll be kept safe thanks to the low surface temperature of the protective grill.
The price is a bit of a sore point as you’re paying a fair amount for a heater that only offers 4sqm of heat coverage. Overall it’s a well built under table heater in a market that has very few competing products but whether you want to pay in excess of £130 for it is up to you.back to menu ↑
