Our expert says: “The original and some would argue one of the best blade-style units. Since 1993 this model has delivered outstanding performance and reliability you would expect from Mitsubishi. That’s why we offer a warranty a staggering 4 years longer than the standard on the Mitsubishi Jet Towel Slim. Not only did this 9th generation edition have a dry time that matched the Dyson Airblade AB14 on max power settings (1.24kW Jet Towel vs 1.6 kW Dyson) in our strict in-house testing, it was only an astonishing 3 seconds slower than the AB14 at its lowest power setting of just 0.55kW! It also delivers a much lower noise level than the AB14 and has a water collection system, keeping walls and floors water-free. These robust, brushless motored units with NSF approval are suitable for locations like large offices, cinema/theatres, schools & higher education, hotels, shopping malls, airports, restaurants, public attractions, hospitals, factories and food preparation areas. No issues with installation have been reported.” Read our full review
7 year exclusive guarantee if you buy through the UK's main Mitsubishi hand dryer distributor (3 year manufacturers). We are the UK's main Mitsubishi hand dryer stockist providing the best prices and free next day delivery. The Mitsubishi Jet Towel is now in its 9th generation as of 2016 and was the first ‘hands in’ style hand dryer on the global market. The new features of this generation include a Wave Nozzle 2.0 which reduces the noise of the previous model by 2dB, but keeping the superb hand drying performance of an 11 seconds dry time (inhouse tested). It also has increased its hygienic properties by having an anti-bacterial resin inserted in all plastic parts. It is much more vandal resistant, with a thicker, stronger back panel giving strength of fixing to the wall and a thicker, redesigned front panel which is more resistant to physical impact (able to withstand more than 18J of force without damage).
The low noise levels from this hand dryer can make some users perceive this is not a fast hand dryer. However, the dry time of our in-house testing has shown that this is one of the fastest drying hand dryers on the market with a range of 11-14 seconds dependent upon the setting chosen. For many locations, these benefits and an effective water drainage system to prevent wet floors and excess water dripping down the side of the unit, make the Mitsubishi Jet Towel an attractive option.
It has an Eco mode and a Turbo mode as well as switches that can add or remove heat to the airflow. This gives a rated power of between 0.55kW and 1.24kW. A very energy-efficient unit, it will cost between 26p and 45p per 1000 dries to run.
It has a digital brushless motor that has a stated motor life of 5000hours, which will last over 1 million cycles. This means this unit should be suitable for extreme traffic (500+ uses per day) and last a very long time.
The NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) award has been achieved due to an Antibacterial resin being inserted into all plastic parts, giving added hygienic properties. The Jet towel is Greenspec listed and on the UK governments ETL approved list for energy efficient products. Being on the ETL list proves stringent testing has been conducted on the product’s energy efficiency and dry times; allowing the purchasing company to depreciate the full cost of the unit in the year they were purchased.
The heated version of the Jet Towel comes in a white, black or silver ABS finish making it suitable for a range of washroom décor and tastes.

Please note that blade hand dryers require different levels of clearance space in order to access the drip tray or other serviceable parts. Please consult the manufacturers' instructions.
We pride ourselves on strictly testing the majority of the hand dryers we sell to make sure you are getting true performance information. Where we haven't yet tested we will use the manufacturers guide.
In our experience only a handful of hand dryers can dry the hands satisfactory in around 10-12 seconds, and certainly none under 10 seconds.
