    Just add water.

    Hey there, this is Jason from the Kleeberg Family Blog. I’m from the old school, where there was never a desire to add or remove moisture to a room. The humidity in a room was what it was, and if you wanted more, you moved to Florida, if you wanted less, you moved to Arizona. I’d always seen these in stores and thought, “What’s the point?”, but now we have a baby and when he got sick, the doctor recommended a humidifier for the room to help with his cough and congestion. We chose this unit because of the look and the features. In terms of look, it’s sleek and modern. A lot of humidifiers are boxy and white - something you wouldn’t want sitting on your shelf at home. I didn’t want something I’d have to put away and take out every night. The Vornado looks great - it’s a two tiered look, the right is for the water reservoir and the left is the control panel. It’s a grey color so it looks good on a shelf. The lights are soft and one small light strip will glow purple, pink, or orange based on the temperature you have it set at. I know some people have complained about the lights flashing when it’s out of water, but it didn’t effect us that much. I never woke up because of it. As far as I can see, you cannot turn the display off, so if that’s a dealbreaker for you, it might be something to look at. For me, it doesn’t bug me. It’s not as bright as some would have you believe. In terms of features, we’ve got three different temperatures of water, which I suppose is nice. It’s got cool, warm, and hot mists. It’s got a digital humidity read, so you can set the humidity percentage in the room. It also has a timer for the night. It’s advertised at up to 36 hours on one tank (we have the one gallon tank version), but I haven’t seen anywhere near that - my guess is that you can get 36 hours on cool with the lowest humidity setting. On warm (at 50% humidity), we see about 8 hours or so. On cool, we get longer. Again, not a big deal. It’s easy to refill the tank - lift, fill, and place back in. There are no filters needed, which is a huge plus. Personally, I see no need for humidifiers. I’ve gone my whole life without one, and now using one for a month, I can’t tell a difference in sleep, health, etc. Some of you probably can though, and if you’re one of those people who get a benefit out of these machines, I’d say this is a good one to get. It looks nice, seems well made, and does what it advertises. Check out the website for more pictures!

    Very impressed, but one terrible flaw

    I have had many of the cheap cool mist ultrasonic humidifiers over the years, they eventually break or get super gross after a few years. I decided to invest in something nice this time around and wanted something that didn’t look as ugly, and this one does look nice. It is my first hot mist humidifier and it is so much more effective than the cool mist, I was amazed at how much quicker it could raise the humidity in the room. The oil diffuser is also nice, I put a few drops of peppermint oil in and the air has a nice menthol feel to help me breathe. Cleaning seems very easy. The lid of the tank is the entire width of the cylinder, this makes it really easy to fill and easy to wipe down, unlike most with a tiny opening. The one fatal flaw of the product is that there is no way to turn off the LED display, so it constantly shines a bright light at night. It says it has an ambient light sensor to adjust the brightness, but it doesn’t seem to do anything. For a product that is so well designed otherwise, it is a massive oversight. Overall I would still recommend it though, unless you just have to sleep in complete darkness. Pros: -Elegant design -Easy to clean -Easy to fill -Adjustable humidity target -Adjustable steam temp -Very effective at being a humidifier -Essential oil diffuser Cons: -No way to turn off bright display, it is a night light -It can burn you on hottest setting, probably not good for kids (but why it is so effective)

    I would definitely recommend this humidifier to anyone who's home tends to dry out from time to time. The two different steam settings are an incredible convenience if you've been gone for a while or need to boost the humidity fast! The tank is extremely easy to clean and the handle makes it very easy to tote from the sink to the humidifier! Multiple options for control, the automatic humidity level is a very nice feature to have as the device will automatically shut off once the room has reached the specific humidity level you have selected (shown on the LED screen). On top of all that, it looks nice and modern too!

    I’ve had this humidifier for about a month and it really is working great. It’s not silent but the fan noise it makes isn’t disruptive. I have it right next to our bed. It works great keeping the humidity in the room comfortable. Not sure if it actually turns off once it reaches the humidity level set since I’m asleep but I’m still happy with it regardless. We live in an area where the air is really dry so it uses quite a bit of water every night but it’s worth it. At least that means it’s working. I don’t use tap water in it. It’s usually distilled or gallon bottled water. So far so good

    I am loving this thing. There are a few different options that I played with at first but ended up just setting it to 50% humidity for the plants and then put it on automatic. It has been keeping it much closer to 50% than any other one I've tried and I leave the door open to the grow room and have a wood stove, so things normally tend to get dry. Lettuce and peppers already seem to be responding very well to the new climate

    I went to BB to purchase the Dyson humidifier. However the salesman suggested I try this brand 1st. So glad I did. I tend to get dry cracked hands and very dry, itchy lower legs by mid November. This year has been awesome. I fill this up at night and it runs through the morning. Haven't had any skin issues so far this winter. And my husband says I haven't been snoring either!!!

    I bought this a couple months ago because I was having a hard time breathing due to the dry air. As soon as I turned it on I felt the difference. It also has helped me sleep much better. I haven’t tried cleaning it yet. I do notice the part that holds the tank can collect a small amount of water.

    Bought this for our bedroom as the air was just so dry! I have dry eyes and this has helped so much! The humidifier is quiet and the touch buttons are easy to use. You can easily adjust the percent of humidity you want to run!

    Love it. Easy to set. Easy clean. But not for the bedroom! The display is very bright and there is no way to turn off the display lights. Love that it turns off when humidity limit is reached

    I love this humidifier. It helped with my sons dry cough when he was sick. He slept all night with little to no cough. Love that you can have a set timer and auto shutoff.
