I've burned myself on every space heater I've ever owned, and half the ones I've been around. Except this one.
What made the difference? Did my continuing yoga practice somehow make me less of a klutz? Not really...(although it improved my sexxxy quotient by a factor of 5). Did I put a "DO NOT ENTER" tape line around it? Not that, either.
Nope, this heater is just plain built not to hurt people. All the heaters I've used before have head metal bodies. This one is plastic. So naturally, the thing can't get up to skin-blistering temperatures. Otherwise it just be a little plastic-mountain blob in the corner (or wherever you keep you space heater).
It's got a built-in handle in the back. So if you're a young single male who writes for a living, like I am, you can carry it from room to room whenever you please. (Bachelor=house not entirely stocked. Writer=broke.)
And yes, it does what a heater should do--it heats up the room. It heats the room adequately and I won't bore you with the details of that--much. It's got two different settings, I think they're fan and non-fan. Honestly I'm not even sure--I just know it keeps me from freezing and doesn't burn the crap out of me when I bump into it--as I inevitably do.
P.S. It's also pet-safe and cat-friendly. Unless your pet is made of paper, in which case you've got other problems.
