"The Original Brown Box" ceramic disc heater. Kosta Pelonis introduced the first ever ceramic disc heater in the late 1980's. The superior heating performance, high energy efficiency, and sturdy steel cabinet have amazed consumers for over 30 years. Many owners report that their original brown box Pelonis disc heater is still performing exceptionally. The BDISC6 features 4 ceramic disc heating elements that heat up instantly the moment the unit is turned on. The unique structure of each disc maintains the best heating efficiency and most even heat distribution of any portable electric heater. The built-in electronic thermostat helps to maintain a consistent temperature and accidental tip-over shut off shuts the unit down automatically if the unit ever falls over.

1.) You may get a bad unit (short in wire, bad thermal switch), send it back.
2.) the lowest setting puts out about 500-600 watts of heat continuously, if this is too much the thermostat will regulate nothing and you will get very hot.
3.) it's easy to send back the bad ones
4.) it's really small and yet reliable (don't buy it and wait a year to test it, can't send it back then)
*I would give it 4 starts but I can't see that as appropriate, 3 stars probably sounds too high based on what I have said but I have 3 of them due to performance and compact size.
make sure you're ok with #1 and #2 before yo buy this unit, and you will be happy. If you are not ok with #1 and #2, buy something else and be happy
After 3 weeks of use, we turned it on one night and it gave off a funny smell then shut off. It would not even run in fan mode with the heat turned off. Attempts to unplug for a while and trying different knob settings did not help.
We considered contacting the manufacturer, but the user manually explicitly said to return it to place of purchase for problems in the first 30 days. Amazon took care of that and refunded our money with no problem.
We went for a cheaper unit from a different manufacturer (Lasso 754200) and it has been great so far.
It probably doesn't even deserve 2 stars, but I felt generous because it does provide heat and may work in a different environment.
Great heat output. But, not able to choose between a lower wattage. This only can be controlled by a single temperature dial- no selection of a lower wattage switch.
If you need to use more than one heater on the same breaker this unit would be a poor choice.
