Product reviews of the best paraffin baths

We purchased 8 of the most popular paraffin wax heaters to test and evaluate their good and bad points to bring you the best available, considering factors such as: temperature control, ease of use, wax capacity and the speed it can heat it.

We found that the Beurer MP70 Paraffin Wax Bath stood out within the group, and not just because of its famous brand.

It features a variable temperature control and comes with two bags of 450g paraffin wax and plastic sheets so you can get started right away.

It also offers a 3 year warranty, which testifies to Beurer’s own belief in the quality of their product.

We’ve compared all the products in the table below and you can also find a more in depth review of each product further below.

This particular machine also features a useful cord winder, and we found it to be one of the easiest to use wax baths and love that it can can provide upto 50 treatments!

Pros
  • Variable Temperature Control
  • You don’t have to buy the paraffin wax and sheets separately
  • Good portability
Cons
  • Be careful with the temperature control as one of our testers set it to what should have been a sufficient temperature but it was too hot to be used!

The Body Comfort BC 01 features a digital temperature control and is also equipped with a thermostat.

Paraffin wax bath BODY COMFORT BC 01:instruction video: on youtube website write to browser.

Because this device doesn’t feature a fixed temperature it means you have total control over the temperature (between 20-85 degrees C) and can set it according to your own individual comfort.

Furthermore, the melting time for the wax is very short (1kg of wax per hour!), so you don’t have to sit around waiting for ages to start your treatment, and it’s wax capacity is 3kg.

It comes with a 2 year warranty for private use and 6 months warranty for professional usage, which isn’t at all bad for a treatment product.

The device weighs roughly 1.87kg, making it even lighter and more mobile than the Beurer!

 

Pros
  • Variable temperature control
  • Melts 1kg wax in an hour
  • Lengthy warranty
Cons
  • You don’t get much wax with this product and may need to buy more fairly soonish, depending on how regularly you use the machine.
