VERDICT

It is hard to choose between these two flat irons from Hot Tools Professionals since they are almost similar. On the functionality side, they are just the same flat irons since they both have the same technology in the plates and heating elements. They both achieve the maximum temperature at the same time, which was just below 40 seconds from our tests, and have also received similar ratings. They can both be used on different hair types among many more applications. Fundamentally, they are just the same thing.

However, the Hot Tools Professional Digital Salon Flat Iron offers a digital LCD temperature display as an extra feature that is not available for the Hot Tools Nano Ceramic Flat Iron. This is despite both flat irons having very similar prices. According to Hot Tools official website, they have the same price.
