Not what I expected! I was hoping the heating element was powerful enough to heat up the oil like the old Rival electric pot.
I bought this today (different color & decor) & bought the cheapest oil to put in it I think it was .89 & put a little of the oil in it & with in 10 minutes I could smell it across the room & within 30 mins my livingroom, hall & kids bedrooms smelled GREAT! I will be buying another one for the other side of my house.
This electric potpourii warmer is nice but doesn't heat up enough like the old time warmers to make the liquid porpourii smell so you can enjoy it....not what I expected.
I got this warmer to use with some homemade aroma salts. I never felt that the unit got "too hot", it is simply a warmer (obviously DO NOT touch the warming plate on the bottom of the unit..it is hotter than the top and sides). The unit can be used with several types of scenting agents, like potpourri, oils, etc. I felt that it has an attractive style, lending itself to many different decor options. I have no complaints at this time.
this is my first time buying one of this. it is great. it takes some time before you can smell it. my wild guess is about 15 minutes. love the look. the one thing that makes me get one. oh and the price $10 at the local store is not bad. but very limited availability. so when you see one and want to get one i highly recommend to get it...ASAP....
I purchased two of these warmers in November of 2014. I have one at home and one at my office. I noticed on the one I keep at my office that the plastic bottom that holds the wires to the warmer had melted off and had a large hole from where the plastic melted. When I checked the one at my home after work, I noticed it had done the same. Keep in mind, I only used the one at my home for maybe at total of 3-4 hours and the one at my office was rarely used and only a few hours at a time. If I could post pictures, I would.
Unfortunately I was disappointed with this warmer. I purchased 3 electric warmers from Walmart previously and they worked wonders, but were unfortunately packed. I didn't want to hunt through boxes looking for my warmers and opted to purchase new electric warmers that could kept as a back up warmer, unfortunately they did not heat the liquid potpourri as well as my other warmers. Needless to say these will be returned and I will be on the look out for the ceramic/steel warmers that Walmart previously carried. I gave this item 2 stars vs. 1 star because the item is appealing and looks good in any room, it just didn't heat the potpourri as expected.
I thought this would do the trick to heat some essential oils, but this one was a dud. It never got warm enough for the scent to permeate. It stayed on a few hours and you couldn't smell anything unless you got right up on it. Even tried a heavier concentration of oils and it never worked. A different one worked with the lower concentration so I'm convinced it just doesn't heat well. Taking it back to Walmart.
i bought one of these, but in white. it was on sale/clearance. only one left in store. it took an hour to heat up. yes an entire hour. there is next to no scent throw. i bought a big bottle of their liquid potpourri and it smelled awful in the bottle and never threw a scent out at all. i dumped it down the drain. i am now using their concentrated oil, the entire large bottle i poured into the warmer. still not a good scent throw. unless you lift the lid and smell it, it doesnt get warm enough to throw the scent. better off with candles. or more expensive oils. too bad, i really wanted to enjoy this item, but it just doesnt get warm enough. that and i think the oils are not rich enough in scent. i read a review of this item on another site and the reviewer said in order to get a good scent throw she had to buy a better quality oil, that the warmer was fine, it was the oils, not the warmer. perhaps that is true.
