Points to Note
- Tempering – The Lasko 6405 Designer Oscillating Heater often has a strong plastic smell when unpacked. This can be dealt with by switching it on in an open space, preferably outdoors and leaving for a few hours so that the coatings the manufacturers use are effectively removed. Once done there should be no residual smell when in use.
- Lack of Remote – Unlike the Lasko 6435 Designer Series Ceramic Oscillating Heater the Lasko 6405 Designer Oscillating space heater does not come with a remote control.
- Safety – the Lasko 6405 does incorporate an automatic shut-off in the event that the heater gets too hot when in use. However it does not have a automatic “tip-over” shut-off which might possibly result in some slight damage to its environment in the event that the heater was knocked over..
The Lasko 6405 Designer Oscillating Heater is an attractively designed and well constructed portable space heater. The design allows it to appear to be part of the furnishings in the room unlike many other portable space heaters which are less attractive to look at. It is also lightweight and relatively small, being about the size of a table lamp or an indoor plant pot.
The purchase price of the Lasko 6405 ceramic heater is very affordable, being available from Amazon at around the $50 mark (click here for the latest price). It is slightly smaller and lighter than its sister space heater the Lasko 6435 ceramic heater, but it does not have a remote control to operate it from a distance.
All in all this is a great space heater for most homes, offering a good even heating experience in an attractive design and a very affordable price.
