Optimus H-4438

The Optimus Oscillating Dish Heater is a unique type of heater that looks like a fan but isn't. All you need to do is set it up and enjoy the instant sun-like warmth. It heats up a room like the sun but uses less energy than a convectional heater. This will save you money and keep you warm, all at the same time.

Review Details

If you are looking for a heater that is easy to use and will heat up a room to your exact liking, the Optimus Oscillating Dish Heater will certainly do the job. The 75-degree oscillation will emit heat throughout the entire room evenly and you can decide whether it points up or down. You can also choose which heat setting you want the heater to run at. This radiant heater may be small and lightweight, but the Optimus certainly performs like a large space heater.

What We Liked

  • 2 Heat Settings
    1 Heat setting can be inconvenient because it only emits one heat temperature. This can cause the room to get too hot too quick.
  • Remote Control
    Being able to change the temperature and settings from any part of the room is extremely convenient. You can just point, click and enjoy the radiant heat.
  • Cool-Touch Housing
    Some heaters get very hot all over, this one does not. This one stays cool to touch, which is perfect for homes with curious children and pets.
  • Top-Over Safety Switch
    If the heater gets knocked over, it will shut off. This will reduce the risk of a fire or other heat damage.
  • Overhear Thermal Cut-Off
    If the heater overheats, it will shut itself off. This will also reduce the risk of a fire.

What We Didn't Like

  • Bright Light
    The orange glow may not be a favorite feature of this heater, but as long as you see that glow, you know it is working.
  • No Fan
    There is no fan to push the heat out into the air. Although there is no fan, the radiant heat still heats up a smaller room without a problem.


For those who want a compact heater that will emit a nice and even warmth with multiple settings, the Optimus Oscillating Dish Heater will fit in your home perfectly. All you need to do is turn it on and enjoy the comforting sun-like warmth. There are definitely quite a few features that make this heater unique and worth the buy.
