      Terrible Quality, Worse Customer Service

      We purchased this item to place in my 4 year old son's room. It worked great during the night, just like we hoped it would. This week, after just under three weeks of use, the tank cracked and is completely unusable. I contacted the manufacturer, Crane, to let them know what happened and how disappointment I was in the quality of item, especially since it was intended for use by children. The response I got back was simply a link to the replacement parts available for order on their website, with no mention of the actual reason I contacted them. I purchased the replacement tank, as that was my only option, but emailed them back letting them know I was now also disappointed in their level of quality service as well. I also noticed that although you can make purchases on their website, there is no ability to leave reviews. This was definitely a One and Done purchase of a Crane product.

      Pros - holds two gallons water, puts out a good mist Cons - childish looking (worth it for how well it works), have had to put a mat down as it gets my carpet wet otherwise. This cool mist humidifier - though childish looking - had the best reviews from Consumer Reports, Best Buy, and Amazon. I replaced it after my Optimus 2 gallon from 2014 stopped putting out a mist. I was able to collect a reimbursement due to my protection plan (Walmart sold that model), but bought this from Amazon to use rewards points and because I wanted the Geek Squad protection in case this breaks, too. Has been working well in the 6 months I've owned it when I've needed it for getting colds. I have not had any problems with cleaning it.

      Works Very Well...Until it leaks

      This humidifier has been great in my boys' room. Nose bleeds have stopped, coughs have stopped, and they no longer complain about scratchy throats. But yesterday my wife went in their room and there was a massive puddle all over the floor. The entire tank leaked out. I didn't know about this and made the same mistake tonight (getting ready for bed). I've been troubleshooting for the past 45 minutes, and it seems the water is leaking out from under where the tank meets the "body". There are no seals, so the water pressure seems to be forcing itself out of the tank and reservoir. I will call Crane Customer Care tomorrow to see how they intend to handle it. Two stars because it worked quite well...until it didn't.

      We have two of these. The first one we put in our daughter's bedroom. I liked it so much that I bought a second one for my bedroom. It works very well and is fairly easy to clean. I have to soak the base and top in either diluted vinegar or bleach to remove any hard water build up or mold (if it occurs). I usually only have to do this once or twice a winter. I run them all winter due to my sinuses drying out and my skin getting terribly dry. It also keeps the static electricity away during the winter. No more shocking my toddler! I run them all day every day during winter and do not have to refill often. It's cute, my daughter enjoys it, and it is a nice product.

      We bought this humidifier for our 2-yr old daughter...she loves the way it looks and it really works well. It have an adjustable dial to manage the amount of humidity and has a large water container to last the entire night. It is also easier to clean than some other humidifiers we have owned. Two things to be aware of...if you live in an area that has hard water (lots of minerals in the water), you will need to purchase a filter that is not included. Second...if you screw the cap on too tightly, it will restrict the water flow and the humidifier will stop working...keep the cap completely closed but do not tighten too much.

      Great price for a good humidifier

      Received the product in the mail yesterday. My first humidifier purchased. So far so good. Price is good for the humidification capacity. Cute design. I like how the product has a auto safety shut off and that you can adjust the mist levels. I didn't give this product a 5 star because of the little noise it makes while on. I'm a light sleeper and the product makes a consistent bubbly noise with the water. Almost close to water dripping from a sink. Also how the cows ears (where the mist comes out of) doesn't move at all. Don't like how I can't adjust where the mist comes out of.

      I was surprised to open the box and find the humidifier to be that big! But, bigger is better because there's more water capacity. The cow design is cute. I like how the mist comes out on both the ears. It's good that you can adjust the mist level. There's a dripping water sound when you turn it on. I'm not bothered by the noise at all. I just find the power on light to be too bright, it acts sort of as a night light in the room. The green light turns red when the water is running low, it's good that it has an automatic shut off so I don't have to worry about turning it off when the water runs out.

      My wife and I brought this, because she's been decorating the house with an oriental theme, and a red dragon would go well with the rest of the decor. We're amazed at how good this humidifier is, and how long it lasts. While I'm away at work during the day, I leave the humidifier in the living room, and put it in the room before going to sleep. I change the water in it once in the morning, leave it at a medium setting, and it doesn't empty out until the next morning! That to me is awesome! My wife and I are used to a more tropical weather, so we've been cranking up the heat in the winter, and needless to say, we've both been sleeping way better with the humidifier.
