Quick Comparison

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.

    Beurer MP70 Paraffin Wax Bath for hands and feet

    The Beurer MP70 features a variable temperature control as well as a heating and operating display.

    It comes with 2 x 450g Orange Paraffin Wax bags and 30 plastic sheets.

    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!

    Furthermore, the whole package weighs only 3 kg, meaning it’s pretty portable and easy to move around.

    The Good
    • Variable Temperature Control
    • You don’t have to buy the paraffin wax and sheets separately
    • Good portability
    The Bad
    • 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!

    Body Comfort BC 01 Paraffin Wax Spa by KarpiTrade

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

    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!

    The Good
    • Variable temperature control
    • Melts 1kg wax in an hour
    • Lengthy warranty
    The Bad
    • 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.

    Therabath Paraffin Wax Bath Review

    The Therabath wax bath has a wax capacity of up to 9lb and wax comes included with this machine.

    It also comes with integrated handles for ease of use, although it doesn’t feature a variable temperature control so the heating temperature is fixed – unlike other brands that do offer this feature.

    The Good
    • 9lbs wax capacity
    • Integrated handles
    • Paraffin wax comes with the package
    The Bad
    • Fixed temperature - no variable temperature control

    Pyrus Paraffin Wax Heater Review

    The Pyrus heater has a wax capacity of 3 liters and weighs 2 kg.

    This machine is really easy to use, featuring a simple On and Off button.

    The inner part of the paraffin wax heater is made of aluminum which offers a high thermal conductivity (it heats up really quickly!) and a durable build.

    The wax melted in this device can be used 30 to 35 times unless you’re using the wax on your face.

    The Good
    • 3 liter wax capacity
    • Aluminum inner build for quicker heating and added durability
    The Bad
    • Doesn’t feature variable temperature control, unlike other brands

    WaxStar Professional Wax Warmer and Heater Review

    The WaxStar features a 500 ml capacity, removable inner pot and includes a variable temperature control making this device suitable for both home and professional use.

    This heater takes only a very short time to heat up the wax, with two members of our testing team commenting that the wax heats in just 5-10 minutes at the high setting, and that can then be changed to a medium temperature setting for use.

    The Good
    • Variable temperature control
    • Minimum heating time required
    The Bad
    • No warranty

    Mylee Professional Electric Wax Heater Review

    The Mylee heater features a 500 ml capacity removable pot and provides a fast heat up time with the help of its coil technology.

    It also features a variable temperature control between the ranges of 50 – 100 degree centigrade so you have total control and can set the temperature to suit your own comfort.

    One feature that the Mylee heater has to offer which we didn’t find in any other wax heater is the built-in thermo heat sensor.

    This sensor makes sure that the wax is at the right temperature that the user has set as it automatically shuts down when it reaches the critical temperature.

     

    The Good
    • Variable temperature control
    • Built-in thermo heat sensor
    • Fast heat-up time
    The Bad
    • It’s not as durably built as other brands

    2.5 Liters Paraffin Wax Heater by BeautyWax Review

    The BeautyWax heater has a large capacity of 2.5 liters and it features temperature control along with a handy indicator light.

    The container with this device is removable and it takes only 30 minutes for the heater to melt the wax. It also includes a see through cover to help keep an eye on wax contamination.

    The Good
    • 2.5 liters capacity
    • Temperature regulator
    The Bad
    • The instruction manual is in Chinese! Good job it isn’t too hard to figure out how to use the heater, but important health and safety advice isn’t available

Frequently asked questions

What is a paraffin wax bath?

A paraffin wax bath is a type of therapy that uses heated oil-based wax as its main agent to relieve pain and inflammation.

Most spa and treatment facilities offer such services, but portable devices can also be bought online that can deliver the same result.
