Metropolitan - Dual Connection
- Generous 10-bar Design: The Metropolitan towel warmer uses 10 polished stainless steel bars to evenly distribute heat, warming up to 2 large towels or bathrobes
- Dual Connection: The wall-mounted Metropolitan uses 120 VAC input power and can be used as is for a plug-in connection or the cord can be modified by a licensed electrician for a hardwired connection
- Overheat Protection: This model comes with built-in TempSmart™ overheat protection to prevent the unit’s surface temperature from exceeding 167°F (75°C)
- No Cover Plate Required: Because this unit doesn't require a gang-box or corresponding cover plate, it has a very streamlined and balanced appearance after installation
- Easy to Clean: The straight bars are made of durable stainless steel construction which is easy to keep clean
The Metropolitan is one of our most popular towel warmers for good reason—this model represents the fusion of stunning modern design aesthetics with cutting edge towel warmer technology. With this towel warmer’s polished finish and crisp, strong lines, the Metropolitan makes an immediate visual impact in any room. With two groups of five heated bars, this towel warmer has more than enough room to accommodate two large towels (or a bathrobe) to warm or dry them in between uses. The Metropolitan is made from durable stainless steel with a highly polished finish that is both attractive and easy to clean.
The Metropolitan is also dual connection, meaning it can be used “as is” to plug into a standard 120 VAC outlet or it can be modified by a licensed electrician to have a hardwired 120 VAC electrical connection. When the Metropolitan is installed with a hardwired electrical connection, its unique design means there is no unattractive and cumbersome cover plate required. Additionally, this towel warmer is extremely safe and is cETLus listed. The Metropolitan comes with an LED power switch and TempSmart™ overheat protection to prevent the unit’s surface temperature from exceeding 167°F (75°C). The Metropolitan is covered by our 2-year manufacturer’s warranty for peace of mind.

Customer Questions & Answers
Metropolitan has 32 Questions and Answers.
Each towel warmer comes with an instruction manual which fully explains how to install the device from start to finish. If you can hang a picture, you can probably install a heated towel rack. However, for hardwired models, you will need a licensed professional who is certified to do electrical wiring for the final hook-up.
Yes, most of our wall-mounted towel warmers have a fixed power location in the lower right corner. All of our heated towel racks are electric "dry" (liquid/oil-free) units and most can be installed "upside down". Doing so will result in the power location relocating from the lower right corner to the upper left corner.
Please see the installation video here: https://www.warmlyyours.com/en-US/video-media/towel-warmer-install
The heated towel rack will heat up to between 100 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. It will not produce sufficient heat to injure you if you touch or brush up against it, though you should still exercise caution around the device. Please note that once a heated towel rail is warmed up, the surface temperature will remain constant and can't be adjusted incrementally.
The heated towel racks have a built-in offset from the wall (the size of the offset will depend on which model you purchased); the offset provides sufficient clearance to prevent any damage to the wall. You should also maintain a distance of four inches between the towel warmer and surrounding fixtures.
Additionally, nearly all of our electric towel warmer models* come with built-in TempSmart™ overheat protection which will shut the unit down automatically if the unit's surface exceeds the safety limit of between 149°F (65°C) and 167°F (75°C).
*Excludes the Elements model.
Our towel warmers are designed for everyday use and all of them include an integrated on/off switch. Please note that the Ibiza model includes additional built-in timer options for controlling the unit. WarmlyYours also offers a wide array of controls that can be used with your heated towel rack. Depending on the control you select, you can program the heated towel rack to your schedule or operate it remotely. Just bear in mind that the heated towel rack is designed to gradually warm towels over the course of a day and does work best when towels are left to hang for about 3 hours.
The heated towel rack is designed to stay on at a relatively constant temperature to keep your bathrobes and towels fresh, warm, and dry. However, should you need to turn the unit off for any reason, you can use the integrated on/off switch on the unit. If you’re using a control for your heated towel rack, you may need to shut off the unit there as well.
Most of our electric towel warmer models* come with built-in TempSmart™ overheat protection which will shut the unit down automatically if the unit's surface exceeds the safety limit of between 149°F (65°C) and 167°F (75°C).

Enjoying the towel warmer
Anonymous, Cookeville, TN on 08/19/2023
The first warmer arrived damaged from shipping (poor packing). It took a couple of emails and phone calls to convince WarmlyYour to send out an exchange towel warmer. The second one arrived in fine condition. Installation was straight forward. It works well. Works be 5 start, but the exchange process was not as smooth as it should have been.
Exemplary Product & OUTSTANDING Customer Service
Anonymous, Arden, NC on 05/19/2022
We were so pleased with both our towel warmers and WarmlyYours customer service three years ago that we recently purchased additional towel warmers for installation in the construction of our new home. Customer Support is unsurpassed.
