Towel Warming Drawer Offers “Home Spa” Luxury

When the air is nippy, and the house is cold, it’s tough getting out of bed in the morning. A hot shower does wonders to warm you up, but then you have to get out, grab a boring old room-temperature towel, and hurry up to dry off before you get cold.

Well, that is a thing of the past if you pamper yourself with a towel warming drawer. You can hop out of the shower and warp a fluffy warm towel around your body. Sounds nice, eh?

This “Home Spa Towel Warming Drawer” from Jacuzzi can heat four towels up to 120 degrees in 15 minutes. Available in two sizes (the 24″ model warms two towels at a time while the 42″ drawer can do four), the unit need not take up much space in your bathroom. It can install in a standard-sized cabinet.

The reviews at Amazon (where the unit sells for $140) are positive, and it looks like the cabinet on the top is large enough to store towels. The space-saver consists of poplar wood with a white painted finish.
