Open Thread: Easy Home Wall Outlet Ceramic Space Heater

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links.

It’s getting cold outside.

At least, that’s true in most parts of the United States. There are some exceptions where the temperature stays about the same year-round, but for most of America, November and December mean adding layers of clothing.

Depending on your tolerances and your circumstances, the indoor heating situation might not be getting it done. Perhaps you work in an office where the temperature is kept on the low side. Maybe you have a space at home that, for some reason, is too cold. Whatever the reason, portable space heaters can provide a little oasis of warmth in the midst of the chill.

Aldi has been selling solutions to the problem of cold spaces for years now. The grocer often rolls out a few different varieties of space heaters during the winter months. The following is one such example.

What We Know:

The Easy Home Wall Outlet Ceramic Space Heater (Product Code: 829599) is an Aldi Find. You can only find it in stores for a short time, and once it’s sold out, you won’t be able to find it again until it comes back, whenever that might be. Since Aldi doesn’t ship products online, if you can’t find it in stores, you’re out of luck.

At the time of this post, the heater retailed for $14.99. That’s on the bottom end of ceramic heater prices I can find online. The heaters currently come in either black or white.

According to Aldi, features include:

  • Safe ceramic heating element
  • Digital LED display
  • Adjustable thermostat from 15.5 – 32 °C / 60 – 90 °F
  • Power indicator light
  • 2 fan speed settings (high and low)
  • Plug rotates by 180 degrees to fit any three-prong outlet
  • Timer up to 12 hours
  • Overheat protection
  • Dimensions: 126 x 84 x 158 mm (4.96 x 3.31 x 6.22 in)
  • Power: 400 W

  1. Purchased yesterday to put in a small 6’x9′ bathroom with a 3’x3′ old, drafty window over the tub. I ran it this morning for an hour prior to showering; it raised the ambient room temperature from 66 to 75 degrees on maximum heat and fan settings in one hour (with the bathroom door closed) while the outside temperature went from 31 to 36 degrees in the same time span. I’ll update when we have a cold, windy day but my initial impression is favorable. It makes the noise you’d expect a small fan running on high would make, but I think the fan is very quiet on the low setting. You can see the element glowing red through the front grill and it throws off a fair amount of heat when you’re directly in front of it, but as always with these small heaters step more than 2-3 feet away and you don’t feel a thing. The air intake is on the bottom, so allow at least an inch of clearance under the fan. The rotating plug on the back is a nice touch.

  2. I bought this wall outlet space heater 1 or 2 years ago and use it in my entryway which is partially 2-story. It’s great at warming up the space on very cold days/nights. I will turn it on before I head out to walk the dog and return to a very comfy space. A real bargain at $15!

  3. Plastic housing pulled apart when gently pulling the unit out of a bathroom socket to try it out for the first time. Heard a snap and then a rattle of small plastic inside the unit. I retrieved two small broken pieces of plastic. The unit still works well, but I have to be extra careful when pulling it out of a socket. I would say this is a very good value for the 14.99 price paid. Warms the bathroom nicely which is what it was purchased for.
