If you’ve ever traveled in Europe, you’ve likely spotted a heated towel rail or towel radiator in a bathroom. Heated towels have been a thing in certain European countries for years. A warm towel helps to take the chill off when you step out of the shower or bath and the cold air hits your skin. A heated towel rail also helps to dry wet towels faster.
Towel radiators are beginning to catch on in the U.S. as well, but if a bathroom remodel isn’t in your plans for the near future, you can still get toasty warm towels by adding a standalone towel warmer to your bathroom. Towel warmers can also be useful for warming blankets, robes, mittens, hats, and socks.
You can find towel warmers at retailers such as Walmart or Amazon. In the spring of 2022, Aldi also sold a limited-edition towel warmer under its Huntington Home private label, which focuses on various home goods.
What We Know:
The Huntington Home Ultra Large Towel Warmer cost $79.99 in April of 2022. The Aldi towel warmer looks exactly like another towel warmer made by Bartnelli that was sold on Amazon at the time of publication, and the towel warmer on Amazon sold for $20 more than the Aldi towel warmer at the time of writing. Other towel warmers on Amazon go for well over $100. That means the Aldi Huntington Home Ultra Large Towel Warmer looks to be a good deal compared to other models if you’re in the market for a towel warmer.
This is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a short time. Aldi does not offer online ordering for its specials if they aren’t in stock at your local store.
Aldi does not sell towel warmers often. The only record we have on our site of Aldi offering a towel warmer is in 2018, when Aldi sold a larger one for $29.99 that measured approx. 20.9″ x 14″ x 35.4″.

I was very excited to see the towel warmer available, and I bought it eagerly. After using it regularly for 6 months, I have been VERY disappointed. The warmer doesn’t heat towels evenly and it takes forever to get up to temperature. There are cold spots in the towels that come out – which are even worse than a room-temperature towel. I am considering a return, but am unsure about it, given that I’ve had the item for 6 months.
