I am renovating my kitchen and there's no room for a heater on the walls. I have steam/oil heat and want to put a toe-kick heater that's powered by steam heat in the toe-kick of my cabinets. Are there any out there? I can't seem to find any, all I see are electric and hot water space heaters.

You say that "By its nature, a toe-kick heater is on demand for the room it is in"...." "This means that a steam-heated toe-kick would jut heat when the main thermostat came on"

What is wrong with that ? My current kitchen steam radiator comes on with the rest of the house, there is good air flow through the house, and we have no need for a separate thermostat, etc. for the kitchen. Why shouldn't there be a steam radiator configured to fit in the toe kick space ?
