We test heaters in a special room fitted with 81 evenly placed temperature sensors. The temperature reading from the sensors enables us to create a 3-D map of the effect each heater has. We look at the time the units take to heat the room, the evenness of the room’s temperature, and how well the thermostats keep the room at an even temperature.
Tilt test - while all heaters passed the standard’s requirement that they don’t topple over when inclined to 15° in any direction, any portable heater can be knocked over accidentally. So we put each heater on its side with the power on to see how long it took to turn off.
Drape test - we turned the heaters up to full temperature on full power and then draped a towel over each heater for 30 minutes. This test should trip the heater’s over-temperature safety switch.

We really like this heater it is very small [stands only 37cm high] so is discreet and portable. The heat only comes out the front so unlike some can be placed with its back to a wall. We got our one in Magenta colour so it has some style. It is also well built [an excellent European design].
No handle to carry it about and cannot turn off the reasonably quiet fan
Yes, I recommend this product.
