With winter being as cold as ever and seeming like it will never end I am glad I purchased the Lasko Portable Oscillating Heater. I use it in various rooms in the house and it performs great. It works great in small and medium size rooms leaving the rooms toasty warm. It heats up pretty quick, it has 1500 watts. The heater does not make much noise which is pretty cool. I am able to leave it on for hours with no problems or safety issues. I also love how it is saving me a ton of money from using my homes heater. It has a 2 settings which I can choose from, from either high or low. It is also not very heavy so it is easy to carry and it has a handle on the top end which makes it very easy to move around the house. How it looks is pretty simple and plain but I am just happy it performs as great as it does. Performance Heats up small and medium size rooms great. Ease of Use Very simple to use. Durability Have had it for this winter now. Design Simple and plain design but that is not bad. Safety Very safe to use.
