We found they actually work better when you fold the towel over a couple of times before putting it on the rack, i.e. it's heating through a thick layer and the heat seems to disperse more evenly. I have found that they make the towels smell, and feel damp...wasn't a fan at all.
Except on the coldest days, the towel rail would also take the nip off the air as well. The timer was not built into the towel rail but a plug in type.
Harvey Norman has some towel racks on special ATM. It was on timer, but I wasn't paying the elect bill so not sure what it costs to run.
Oh I just read your post... u want to actually get the towels dry. Not just warm them up. I have an IXL 75920 . Model is about 2 years oldie uses 73 – 80 watts according to the sticker...works well but still takes about 4 hours to dry a used towel . Hot to touch, but I reckon the low power consumption is worth a dry towel in the morning link here to the current model www.ixl.com.au/towrl_4bar_spec.html.

Wonder when the “rapid, nationwide expansion program” mentioned on their website will bring them to SA! We were on a holiday in Syd and came back to Melbourne, and I was really annoyed that they weren't in Vic.
In the meantime, you can get really frustrated by going to www.aldi.com.au on a weekly basis and looking at all the great bargains that you can't get! A warm toilet seat is disgusting, it feels like someone else has been there not so long ago that you will catch any germs.
