Holmes HFH111T-U

If you are looking for a small heater that will give out a significant amount of heat, the Holmes Desktop Heater is ideal. It is small enough to be placed on a counter, desktop, floor, virtually anywhere. With its easy to use thermostat control, you can safely adjust the heat you want emitted throughout the room. If you accidentally tip it over, no problem, this heater is equipped with a tip over auto shut-off mechanism.

Review Details

The Holmes Desktop Heater is a good little heater for smaller spaces that need extra heat. A lot of people worry about having a heater on the floor or table when there are kids around, but in this case it does't matter if there are kids or pets around because it has a tip over auto shut-off feature.

The carrying handle is nice because it can easily be moved from room to room if needed. Also, you can use the heater all year around, for heat in the winter and a small breeze in the summer with the fan only function.

What We Liked

  • Heat or fan only option
    If you want to use the heater in the summer as a fan, no problem. You can use the fan setting without any heat for a nice portable fan.
  • Tip over auto shut off
    If your heater accidentally gets tipped over and you aren't home, the heater will shut off, preventing a fire from breaking out.
  • Carrying handle
    The carrying handle makes it easy to carry the heater from room to room.
  • Thermostat control
    The thermostat control is a great feature for getting that perfect temperature in any room.

What We Didn't Like

  • Plastic
    Plastic can break easily if the heater is dropped. Plastic also melts, so don't place it near your main heating source.
  • Turn knob settings
    These can be difficult to use if it is dark in a room and sometimes get stuck.


Overall, the Holmes Desktop Heater does what it was made to do. It is a small heater that gives off the right amount of heat for whatever small room you put it in. The price is right for this multi-function heater, and the thermostat controls allow for optimal temperatures.
