From my experience I like the glass plate oil warmer best, it doesn't burn through the oil as quickly as some others, and doesn't get too hot. As for the slight burnt smell I would consider what type of tealight you are using... highly recommend the ones sold at bbw they are made with vegetable wax and have a lead free wick which won't have a burnt smell and isn't bad for the environment. =D

In regards to the previous response, B&BW offers glass plate oil warmers, soapstone oil warmers, and electric oil warmers.

I've got and tried three different kinds of oil burners; a metal plate, glass plate, and soapstone. I did realise that they all burn the oil differently, and by far, the glass plate one is my most favourite. I like the looking of my metal oil burner, but it seems to get too hot too soon because of its material. It burns out 10 drops of oil in a few minutes! I fell in love with the looking of soapstone oil burner so I bought it, but it didn't work as great as I wanted it to. I think the problem is that it's too close between the body and the plate, so like the metal one, it tends to get too hot. However, I love how it looks so pretty, so I still use it occasionally. So, in my opinion, the glass oil burner is my best one so far. I also noticed that the only oil burner they use at the B&BW shops is the glass plate one. So I think I can tell it's most effective and maybe the safest from it as well. Hope you'll find your best one!
