Top 15 Best Towel Steamers
for December 2022

MOOZ's editors independently choose recommendations. Purchases made through our links may earn us commissions.

Steamers are a quick and easy way to freshen up towels and other laundry. These appliances use steam to disinfect and soften clothes, making them great for towels, bedding and linens.

Our Lab tests towels for softness, absorbency, and how well they dry. We also evaluate how evenly and thoroughly towels are cleaned. We test towels for how well they clean, too, by evaluating whether they remove stains and odors. We also test towels for durability, using a variety of tests to measure how durable they are.

Our top pick is the June Intelligent Touch Steamer, which won the 2016 iF Design Award. The June Intelligent Touch Steamer uses intelligent touch controls, so you can control temperature, time, and steam output all from the palm of your hand. The June Smart Steamer also cleans and deodorizes, using June's patented JuneSenseTM technology. It has multiple settings, including normal, powerful, and deodorizing.

Beauty Pro Hot Towel Warmer - Steamer Kit NEW

Beauty Pro Hot Towel Warmer

by Beauty Pro

MULTIPLE USE - Ideal for Facials, pedicures, manicures, hot shaves or just a relaxing steamy towel.

The Beauty Pro Hot Towel Warmer is a reliable, inexpensive steamer that performs its basic functions reliably. It warms up towels quickly, and it does so without wasting water or steam. It heats up in about 20 minutes, and it automatically turns off when the water level gets too low or the timer runs out. The towels retain heat well, and the steamer is quiet, though it's not quite as quiet as our previous top pick, the BeautyPro Steam Towel Warmer. The Beauty Pro Hot Towel Warmer comes with six towels, but users have the option to add towels for $14.95. The Beauty Pro Hot Towel Warmer has a 1-year warranty.

The FantaSea Portable Towel Steamer is an attractive handheld steamer that heats up quickly. It has a small footprint and is easy to store, making it a good choice when traveling. It's also easy to use, with a control panel, good water pressure, and a long cord that makes it easy to maneuver. The steamer holds a surprisingly large amount of water, and the reservoir is top-rack dishwasher safe. The steamer has 6 terry cloth towels that hold a lot of water, and it's easy to switch between them. The towels are roughly 5-by-7 inches, so they take up a lot of space in the steamer. The steamer is portable, but it's a little heavy, so it's best for occasional use. It does a good job of sterilizing small surfaces, but it's limited to flat surfaces, so it won't steam up a tight corner, and it can't steam upholstery. The steamer is very loud, so it's best used in a room with lots of ventilation.

We love the Personal Household Use Moist Towels Warmers and Steamer because it holds so many towels, heats up quickly and is easy to use. The warmer has a 10-minute heat up time, with 60-minute auto-off timer, and the power indicator light lets you know when the towel warmer is ready to use. The warmer is also wider and longer than other models, so it's perfect for larger families. The warmer comes with 12 facial towels, which fit perfectly in the warmer. The warmer also has three temperature settings: low, medium and high. The warmer also comes with a measuring cup, so you can pour water into the warmer.

The Sunbeam Hot & Warm Moist Towel Warmer and Steamer is ideal for heating up and steaming towels, clothing, bedding, and more. This warmer features a large reservoir that holds up to 15 towels, so you can keep multiple towels warm at once. The reservoir is lit with a red light to let you know when it's ready to use. The warmer is easy to operate and includes 60 minutes of auto-off timer, a steam-release button, and a power indicator light. The warmer's steam-release button is handy for freshening clothing, bedding, or towels. The warmer comes with a short power cord and a small plug in plug. The warmer's reservoir only holds about 7 cups of water, which means it's not ideal for households with larger families. However, the warmer is slim and portable, and takes up little space, making it well-suited for apartments or guest rooms. We also like the timer's auto-off feature, which turns off the warmer after 60 minutes, so you won't have to worry about accidentally leaving it on.

This towel warmer is compact and well-made. It heats up quickly and heats towels very effectively, and the towel rack is sturdy enough to hold several towels at once. The warming plate is thin, so it won't heat up the entire towel, but we found that this didn't matter much. It's fairly quiet, so it's perfect for bathrooms or other small areas where you want some gentle heat. The controls are intuitive, and the unit shuts off automatically after 30 minutes. The only negative is that the timer button is on the front of the unit, which isn't ideal because you can't turn it on and off without waking it up. The included remote, however, is a lot easier to use. The Mini Quick-Heating Towel Warmer and Towel Steamer is an attractive, well-made unit, and it's perfect for small bathrooms, bathrooms in hotel rooms, or places where space is limited.

We also like that the towel warmer is relatively quiet, only making a low hum when in use. The included metal tray is easy to clean, and the unit itself is easy to clean, too. The towel warmer is big, but we didn't find it too bulky to use. The towel warmer also comes with a cord, so you can plug it into a wall outlet. This towel warmer gets our highest rating.

DanBelle Pro Collection Electric Steamer Hot Warmer Towel Cabinet 18L For Spa

by DanBelle

DanBelle Towel Warmer will keep your towels warm and ready to provide a clean, luxurious, and comfortable experience for your customers.

The DanBelle Pro Collection Electric Steamer Hot Towel Warmer Cabinet 18L For Spa, Beauty Salon and Home is a well-made, compact towel warmer. It heats up quickly and evenly, and its digital control panel is clear and simple to use. The digital controls are temperature controlled, and the included user manual is clear and easy to follow. The warmer is quiet and has minimal vibration, and it's easy to change the towels. The warmer is small enough to fit on a bathroom counter, and it comes with suction cups to hold it in place, but we did find that the suction cups didn't stick well to our counter. The warmer works well, but it's a little too small for our liking, so it's best suited to small bathrooms or as an accent piece in a spa.

FantaSea Towel Steamer

FantaSea Towel Steamer

by FantaSea

Portable and lightweight ideal for salons, spas and barbers

The FantaSea Towel Steamer has everything you could ask for in a steamer. It heats up quickly, has a 60-minute timer, a 15-minute heat-up, and an automatic shut-off. The included towels are soft and absorbent, and the base is sturdy and easy to maneuver. The FantaSea Towel Steamer also produces very little steam -- which isn't an issue since you're only using it to gently dry your towels. For larger loads, we recommend the Sharper Image Steamfast 4-Person Portable Steamer, but for very small loads, the FantaSea Towel Steamer is an excellent choice.

If you're shopping for a facial steamer, the Dermalogica Steamer 360 is head and shoulders above its competitors. Its wide base and sturdy construction make it feel extra heavy, and the fan at its center spins at a steady 40,000 rpm, which is high enough to gently lift away dead skin without leaving your face covered in a thin film of water. The Dermalogica Steamer 360 is designed to evenly distribute steam into your face, and the moist heat makes it more comfortable than a traditional hot towel. It has a 10-oz. tank that can hold enough water for 25 minutes of continuous steam, and its 360-degree rotating head makes it easy to reach your entire face and neck. Unlike some facial steamers, the Dermalogica Steamer 360 doesn't have a timer, but it's easy to program one to start and stop automatically. The Dermalogica Steamer 360 is also easy to set up and use, and it has three heat settings (low, medium, and high). The Dermalogica Steamer 360 is an expensive facial steamer, but it's well worth the money.

The stylish design of this towel heater features a metal cabinet with a cool-touch composite door and an integrated handle with a magnetic latch.

The 42L-14S hot towel cabinet is by far the best beauty equipment machine steamer double -decker hot towel warmer 32L 2 in1 UV Cabinet Facial Skin Salon Spa Facial Nail Tattoo Beauty, Business we've tested. It heats up quickly and retains heat well, and it's easy to operate. The double -decker design gives you more flexibility in where you place the cabinet. The cabinet is also attractive and has a sleek, modern design. The UV lamps give you the option of using the cabinet as a facial steamer or for double duty as a facial and body steamer. The 32L capacity is big enough for at least 20 towels, and the cabinet holds enough heat to steam 3 or 4 towels at a time, which is more than enough for an average spa or salon. The only drawback is that it doesn't hold as much water as our previous pick, the 32L hot towel cabinet from Beauty Care, but that's mostly a matter of personal preference. The 42L-14S hot towel cabinet is a terrific value that's both attractive and easy to use.
