Hot glue guns are very versatile tools that can be used for anything from crafting to making small repairs around the house. If you’re looking for a great glue gun, you’ve come to the right place. We researched some of the best-selling products and top name brand and put together this best hot glue gun review. Before we get to it, let’s take a look at some of the key features you should know before you shop.
Power: When it comes to hot glue gun, watts equals power. Mini glue guns have fewer watts than larger models because they’re smaller and don’t need as much. Plus, watts are also directly related to preheat time.
Pieces: This includes the glue gun and any accessories that come with it, most commonly glue sticks. We also found one product that includes a case and a cordless option with a battery and charger. Those are also included in this number.
Preheat Time: Preheat time is how long the gun needs to warm up in order to effectively melt the glue sticks. These products range anywhere from 1 to 6 minutes. Usually, guns with high wattage have faster preheat times.
Storage Bag: Storage bags aren’t necessary but they are so convenient to have. We included one in our list that not only gives you a space to store the glue gun but a lot of glue sticks as well.
Size: Glue guns come in 2 different sizes, mini and full sized. That said, the sizes aren’t standard so take a look at the dimensions to see exactly how big each one is, especially if you’re looking for a certain size.
Warranty: Some of these come with pretty good warranties while others don’t include any at all. It’s a good idea to make sure you know what’s covered and what isn’t no matter what glue gun you end up choosing.
Now that you know what to look for, let’s move along into the next part of our guide, the reviews. If you’re in a hurry, check out our top and budget picks first.
