For the hot Thai herbal (Balls) packs, I bought a small black "Presto" vegetable steamer with a glass lid, so you can see inside. it works really well for steaming 2 Herbal balls. A massage company on- line tried to charge me about $60 for it, calling it a "Thai herbal pack steamer", I found it at Walmart for under $30, sold as a vegetable steamer! Once the herbal balls heat up well, I pop them in the towel warmer and they retain the heat just fine. I also pop a small pyrex dish in there with my massage oil sometimes, for a short time, it warms it up beautifully. There's a constant steady heat that builds but never gets too hot or cools too quickly. Sometimes if my stones have been in there a while they actually do get quite hot, if so, I just quietly take them out and lay them on a towel to cool for a while before I need them.
I didn't bother getting the option with the Sanitizer light, the simpler the better for me. All my towels go straight into a hot wash in the machine, the stones are scrubbed and laid in the sun to be replenished. The sanitizer may be good for a professional salon that does facials.
After the sessions are over I simply press the external button on the cabinet once, the light goes out and it switches off. There's nothing to clean, just dab off the excess water in the tray below. The Cabinet heats up dry towels as well as moist towels. A great way to massage the Client's feet at the beginning of the massage and get them clean at the same time, or apply moist heat to the back or neck during the massage or even at the end. It's a small little cabinet but holds quite a lot, I really like it a lot.
After using it with that independent contractor job, I bought it for my own business to sit in my studio. I LOVE IT!
There are a few different ways to use it to its best potential, but always I fold the cotton towels in 1/3s and roll them after soaking in water:
If you like the slightly damp, but steaming hot towels, I suggest you drench the towels in HOT water, wring them out VERY WELL, then place them in the warmer (turned on, of course) at least 30 minutes prior to using (so I put them in the warmer about 10 minutes prior to my client arriving, then use them on the back about 30-35 minutes after starting the massage). You will have to pat the towels in your hand until they are less scalding for your client, but two or three (pizza-like) tosses does the trick. Be aware that this technique does leave that area of the client's body a bit damp, so just use a separate dry towel on top of the wet towel to wipe it off (putting the dry one on top traps the heat, then you can use it to also dry off simultaneously).
If you don't want to leave the client a bit damp after the hot towel (even though it'll be warmer longer), you can place one folded (dry) towel down, drench a second towel in hot water on top, then roll them both and wring them both together, then place in warmer. The hot one will share the hot water with the dry one and once you're ready to use them, they will still be hot, but they won't be wet-hot. Just keep in mind that the heat won't last as long, since the heat is in the water, not the towel itself, so I prefer the former technique, but at least you have the option.
KEEP IN MIND: If you use cold water, or let the hot towels cool before putting them in the warmer, it will take MUCH longer to heat the towels. If you want to use them right away, it would be best to use HOT water.
We purchased the unit November 3rd, it stopped working (heating) on February 10th. There's no customer service. The unit is sealed and we had to purchase another cabi (from another supplier)
