I bought this product for my office at work. I was looking for something small and easy to move around. My office is very dry and I suffer terribly from seasonal allergies. My doctor recommended a cool mist humidifier. I found this product at my local drug store and it looked like just what I would need. This humidifier works great for small areas, and is very lightweight and portable. I keep mine on the low setting and it lasts all eight hours I am at work. I clean it out on Fridays and it is very easy to clean. This machine is also very quiet and you can hardly tell that it is even on. This humidifier works great and has really helped me deal with my seasonal allergies while at work. I have had this machine for 3+ years and have never had any issues with it. It still works just like new. Ease of Cleaning Very easy to clean and to maintain. Durability This is a very durable humidifier. I use it five days a week for eight hours a day, and it has never given me one problem. Design The design is small and portable.
