About the Product
Lasko's Personal Heater is designed to warm only you; not an entire room. This allows you to feel comfortable and warm while paying only to warm the space around you instead of warming the entire room. This heater is great for placement under your desk or next to your chair. Because it is designed for personal heat output, it is very economical to use. Built-in safety features include "cool touch" housing.
Lasko's #101 MyHeat Personal Heater economically warms you. Not a room heater; a personal space heater. Why pay to heat the entire room or office. Heat only your space.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Lasko 100 MyHeat Personal Ceramic Heater
  • Small and uses little power as described. I have a small desk and it keeps my area very warm. No louder than a fan of the same size.
  • I see a lot of whining about this heater not heating an entire room/closet/bathroom. You do see it is 200 watts right? This is not a SPACE heater this is a PERSONAL heater.
  • This tiny little unit really puts out a lot of heat without using a lot of power. My office is often like a meat locker, but instead of freezing, I am toasty warm with my tiny heater. I love it!
  • Okay so I read the reviews, I knew what I was getting. It is small, it heats up your feet, or a section of your chest, or maybe if you're in a cubicle you might be able to generate some warmth. I put it under my desk and stick my feet down there and it keeps me warm from toes to knees.
  • The downside to a smaller heater is that it doesn't put out heat like an active volcano, rather at best it takes the chill out of the air under my desk, but that's really all I wanted for cold days.
Lasko 101 My Heat Personal Heater
  • So I thought that this little heater would do what I wanted most - heat up my feet and immediate area - without drawing much power and potentially overloading circuits (and thus drawing unwanted attention to myself).
  • For its size it puts out plenty of heat. Mainly I use it under my desk to keep my feet and lower body warm. If it is a really cold evening, I add a fleece hat, and a heated flannel blanket around my shoulders.
  • I LOVE this heater, it has absolutely saved my life at work. It's small enough to fit on my desk, and doesn't blow too hot, so I don't over heat, I just stay comfortably warm.
  • The other is that the heat does not spread too far around, so my coworkers don't really feel too much a temperature change either. So don't try to warm up a room with this thing, it is really a personal heater, like for a desk space.
  • It also doesn't really heat up the entire room. It's made to just heat the air right in front of it, so you'll feel really warm right in front of it but not further away.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Lasko 100 MyHeat Personal Ceramic Heater
  • This is a tiny heater measuring about 4.5"x6". I bought it to keep my hands warm in my office.
  • Great little heater! Puts out an appropriate amount of heat for being so small. I got this to put on my desktop at work as a supplemental heater (I already have another model under my desk).
  • It's way small, which I may have anticipated had I read the dimensions. It's perfect for lugging back and forth to the office.
  • It's about the size of my hand, FYI. So it's not large. Which makes it a great size to put just about anywhere.
  • For its size yeah it's only meant to heat up one person in need of warmth, but it packs a punch!
Lasko 101 My Heat Personal Heater
  • The unit is small and portable. But don't expect it to kick out much heat at all. You have to be quite close to feel anything coming out. I know this is a "personal" heater, and not a space heater, but I still expected more.
  • This little guy puts out an impressive amount of heat. It won't heat a large or even medium sized space, but if you need to heat under your desk or very near your person, it definitely puts out the heat.
  • The design and the compact size is very nice. Also fairly quiet. The downside is that it's compact size is designed for VERY small spaces.
  • I love this! It's just the perfect size for the office. My office is always freezing it keeps me warm enough that I don't need 3 sweaters to make it through the day.
  • The fan in the heater is sized perfectly. It puts out just enough air velocity to create warmth for someone who has the heater at his feet, so the heat rises underneath you in a very comfortable way.

What customers say about "Features"
Lasko 100 MyHeat Personal Ceramic Heater
  • They call this a personal heater for a reason - it only heats up the immediate surroundings. My office usually runs about 68 degrees.
  • I set it on top of my computer tower, and the heat bounces off my keyboard tray to make a really warm personal space. I'm very happy with it. Also, it's cool to the touch. I've had it on for at least 4 hours now, and the unit is cool when I touch it.
  • No heat settings. No fan only mode. Just on and off. It's quiet. It does not shut off if it tips over!!
  • I bought this item for my cubicle at work. I wrestled with buying a larger, regular size space heater with more features, but these heaters are technically not allowed so this little heater allows me to "fly under the radar" so to speak as it uses less power than one of my computer monitors.
  • There is no safety feature, which is also a bummer, but I knew that going in. I don't foresee it toppling over at any point and I only run the machine when I'm at my desk, so it isn't a problem.
Lasko 101 My Heat Personal Heater
  • For the price, quality and features, you can't go wrong with this little gem.
  • No noise, no movement, just toasty satisfaction without taking up valuable space (a very important feature when you want something completely unintrusive). Additionally, it arrived extremely fast from this vendor.
  • I wish it had an automatic shut off feature or temperature control... But it's a pretty good little heater. If it's on my desk, if keeps me toasty
  • The only thing the other heater has that this does not is the automatic shutoff safety feature. While I would prefer that feature, its not that much of a hazard for a heater of this size as long as you are careful.
  • Nothing big, not feature loaded, but just a compact heater that works for some heat which is what I was looking for.
