Why Are The Best-Rated Heating Wipers Better Than The Top Rated?
As the price rises, so does the quality. The top-rated heating wiper is a 3 star wiper and with a price of $3.99. The best-rated heating wiper is 5 stars with the same price point of $3.99. We think the best-rated is superior.
No one else in the industry has a rating system. It takes some digging to find this information. The best-rated heating wiper is better in several ways:
1) more LEDs (6) than 3-star wiper (3)
2) same price as 3-star wiper ($3.99)
3) 2 inches wider than 3-star wiper (14″)
4) runs on AA batteries instead of AAA batteries like other heaters in the industry ($2.99 for 10 AA batteries)
5) has an on/off switch (some have to unplug them to turn off)
6) better instructions on how to use the device
7) a higher wattage (240 vs. 100) which means it will heat up faster and remain hot longer than the other heat pads.
How to Choose Which Hot Wax Warmer is Right for You
There are 3 qualities to consider when choosing a hot wax warmer: whether it has a remote, whether it has an automatic shut-off, and if it is cordless. The cheapest option is the 1 star model with no remote for $7.99, followed by the 2 star model that has a remote and automatic shut-off for $9.99. Finally, the best choice (highest quality, most features) is the 4 star model with no remote and it is cordless for $29.99.
Whether it has a remote:
The 1 star model [the cheapest] does not have a remote and it is safer to control the temperature from the wax warmer. The 2 star model [most popular] does have a remote but is more convenient to control the temperature from across the room. The 4 star model also does not have a remote, but is cordless.
Whether it has an automatic shut-off:
The 1 and 4 star models do have an automatic shut-off for extra safety. The 2 star model has no automatic shut-off, but it is safer to control the temperature from the wax warmer.
Whether it is cordless:
Wax Panes Selling on Amazon – What is the Advantage of Using a Wholesale Source?
Most wax pane sellers on Amazon are below $1.00 for a 100 pack, but that is for single panes. For example, DAP has 32 packs of 3 heated wax sheets for $9.99 on Amazon and even less on Ebay , but it’s one sheet per package, so this isn’t a bulk order. The same goes for other sellers like Aroma Touch, Cut-Price Wax, Happiness House (awesome product), Black Swan, and Scentwise. Yes, I have a whole lot more to say about Scentwise.
Now compare this to Newgreen Products, a wholesale company that sells 100 packs of heated wax sheets for the same price, or $1.50 per sheet. For those who don’t know, you can get similar deals from local merchants like Scentfectives and Affordable Indulgences (they also sell single sheets). All I have to show for it is an empty box with an old receipt taped in one corner. Scentfectives advertises on Amazon.
What am I saying? This isn’t about price, it’s about quality and purchasing options. Aroma Touch is a good product made by an honest company that offers good service and great customer support. It’s just that these companies aren’t the only game in town (and sometimes not even close). You see, I wanted to order the Newgreen product from Amazon and one of their merchants. Newgreen has an expansive product selection that includes a massive assortment of scented oils, but they don’t sell on Amazon or Ebay. This was a little confusing at first; after all, Amazon is one of the largest online retailers in the world and thousands of merchants sell on Amazon… except for Newgreen.
How To Make Sure That the Hot Wax Warmers You Choose Are Safe for Your Family?
Scentwise is our best-rated wax warmer and it is safe for anyone. It’s 100% pure therapeutic grade tea tree oil, for example. I have insomnia and I use this to help me sleep because there’s just no scent that matches the aroma of a heated wax sheet. Black Swan also has the same thing, but they make one with essential oils (can’t find the listing), so you’ll want to read reviews to make sure they haven’t been discontinued. I tried the Scentwise for myself and it worked, but my husband didn’t like the smell. It’s a softer scent, so even though it worked for me, it is not ideal for everyone.
So if you want a warmer that has tea tree oil, do a bit more research. Or better yet, go with one of the ones where you can pick your own essential oils. Here’s how to make sure you get one that is safe:
