    anybody have one? I remember reading a post about one a while back, sounded like a pretty good thing, if a little decadent.

    Wow, I didn't know those were still around. I'd forgotten all about them. My father had one when I was a kid. Can of gel attached to the bottom, whole thing plugged into the wall, warm gel came out the front ready to lather up.

    Modern ones seem to have a cord instead of hanging off the wall, but otherwise work the same. The Conair one that's all over the internet is only $30 so it might be worth trying as a lark.

    Me, I shave in the shower and use preshave oil, so I doubt there's a whole lot of benefit I'd get from heating up the gel too.

    Well, they are an interesting tool to have around. The wife had one while she was in training to be a barber but I never found it that effective myself. There are other ways to get good warm lather that are better IMHO.

    I have two of these (one as backup). Very nice (Jovan can probably also chime in). Cream stays HOT for a while.

    Glad to hear this works well. I ordered one on the 15th after reading about it on www.shaveblog.com. Today, I recieved a handwritten receipt from sara and i expect the scuttle in a day or two.
