Originally designed—nearly 50 years ago—to give peace of mind to dairy farmers who feared their barns would burn down if a cow kicked over a space heater while being milked, this fan-forced electric milk house heater shuts off automatically and displays a caution light if it tips over or if the temperature gets too high. Built to last, with rugged steel construction, our milk house heater has a 1,500-watt element with 2 heat settings, a fan-only setting, and a thermostat for comfort control to bring worry-free warmth to drafty homes, garages, and campers. Use on floor or table top. 171/2"Hx10"W x9"D. ETL listed.

  • Fan-forced electric heater
  • Rugged steel housing
  • Automatic shut-off feature
  • 1,500 watt element

In addition to cozying up your den, workshop, or porch, our milk house heater can help keep heating bills in check, as it requires less energy compared to a big furnace.

Gift wrap not available.

Keeps My Basement Apartment Living Room Warm I currently live in a basement apartment in a house that's not well insulated. This little workhorse has done a superb job of keeping my living room at a decent temperature. (Not Miami Beach warm, but wear-a-hoodie warm. Hey, it IS winter after all!) It's compact yet delivers good heat. The automatic shutoff feature is great too. Am reassured knowing the device will turn off if it tips over (no risk of fire), or if it's overworking itself. We've had single digit temps for 2 weeks (first time in 100 years!) and I'm so grateful for my Milk House Heater. When I move out, this'll be easy to pack. If you're a student, on a budget, and/or into simple living, get this for your space heating needs. Great buy for the money! February 25, 2015 well....they stand by their products... I purchased 2 milk house heaters because my furnace isn't working and I just want to keep warm. One came with a slanted/bent handle, but it worked so well I was going to keep it....I shared my story and received an email. They're sending out a new, inspected milk house heater and they're paying for me to return the flawed one.....they really do stand by their products! They now have a customer for life, and I'm bragging to everyone about how amazing the service is from The Vermont Country Store! January 27, 2015
Security, but not great aesthetics It's nice to know that I won't have to throw away another low-quality, milk house-style heater after one or two seasons of use. The Vermont country Store's, built-in, life-time warranty results in an an extra up-front expense, but is well worth it. And because it is sold by them, I also trust that this is a better product to begin with. I only wish it came in off-white. January 8, 2015
Exactly as advertised Great product, well made, simple basic heater, nothing fancy....... the kind that lasts for years. Thank you December 2, 2014
Best Space Heater When my pipes froze this winter I pulled out my 25 years old Milk House Heater. When another wall froze I ordered 2 new Milk House Heaters. These heaters gently blow warm air right where you need it. They stay cool on the sides and top. They truly turn off if you tip the heater even a little. This is a reliable product - not fancy, it just does a good job. February 12, 2014
wife loves it the small office my wife works in is kept quite cold so i bought her the heater to warm things up a bit!! it works great for her Keeeps it on low and its perfect! January 30, 2014
Milk HOuse Heater In Tennessee, our high temps are usually 50' in the past 2 -3 weeks we have been in the 20' and 30'. I have heard of this heater for ages...and finally bought one,,,,Glad I did,,,,,heating my room very quickly, thanks Vernont!!!! January 29, 2014
Now we can use the garage! Although we live in the South, it still gets too cold in the winter to do much work in our otherwise unheated garage -- problem solved!!! The Milk House Heater works exactly as advertised and heats an entire 2 + car garage to a comfortable temperature in less than 10 minutes, and it stays comfortable until we turn it off. The only funny part of our story is that our grown children think we pamper our two dogs too much (true) and that I said "Milk Bone" heater when discussing this product -- the groans were a little much! Thanks for a great, useable product December 30, 2013
