This humidifier was relatively easy to put together. I only needed help once when I couldn’t figure out where one part went, but overall assembly was simple (two parts need to be snapped in place), and I think it could have been easier if I looked to the back of the box instead of the manual first. Once it was assembled I poured water in the main chamber and cranked it up to the highest setting. I tried using the lower settings but it just wasn’t cutting it. I suggest the highest setting. This humidifier can hold 1.25 gallons of water, and that can last a really long time even on the highest setting. It’s not a bad looking appliance either. It has an average length cord that needs to be plugged into an outlet.
My favorite things about this humidifier:
-You can constantly refill it without having to stop the machine or take any pieces apart - it’s really something I had dreaded about humidifiers in the past, and I didn’t realize how much easier this feature makes life
-You also can use tap water if you want to keep filters on hand. If you don’t, you can use distilled water (what most humidifiers need), but this is such a convenient feature. Sometimes you need humidity but you don’t have distilled water-honeywell to the rescue!
-The sound is quite soothing. It reminds me of a babbling creek. This aspect of the humidifier is a double edged sword. Often I would find myself thinking that I left a sink on or that one of our dogs was weeing in the house. So be aware.
-Other than the water sound, it’s quite quiet
-Assembly was not too difficult
-It automatically turns off when it runs out of water! No need to worry about wasted energy!
-It doesn’t run off of boiling water so you don’t have to worry about this machine if you’ve got little ones running around.
-Not too many buttons (actually none!) just a single dial for all your controlling needs. I think this makes it great for older people who need a simple and easy to use machine.
-Adds just enough humidity to our house without making it stuffy, not sure how it would fair in bigger houses or small rooms.
-You can turn the little spout around to direct the mist in different directions without having to move the entire thing! Genius.
Haven’t tried cleaning it yet, but one week in and it still looks good! I think it’s a good investment, especially when you consider the two year warranty and the fact that you won’t have to buy so much lotion in the winter. Your dry cracked lips and skin will thank you.
I received this product free for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own.
