We had only used it for one week.

I was willing to deal with that because beautifully designed plastic is an improvement over bulky, ugly, noisy plastic.

If you are looking for a relatively basic but very stylish humidifier, Fred is the perfect choice.

Color Name: Silver
very simple steam humidifier. You should be aware of the types of humidifier and not be suprised at the hot steam and potential of accidental burns. If you have small child, you should not own this.

Pros:
Steam= no white dusts, no filters to change, bacterias are "boiled" off.
Stylish= no toy looking controls, no clear blue medical looking canisters
auto shut off when water is depleted

cons:
All plastic material shell(including the feet): now, I'm not sure if the outshell being metal is a good thing. It can potentially be a metal toaster oven if its made out of metal. Plastic does have a certain smell.. if you ever used a plastic electric water boiler, it smells just like that.
Designed in Swiss but made in China: don't be fooled by the swiss style design, this baby is geniue made in china.
The plastic chute is extremely hot, you can't touch that thing while the steamer is operating. Have to be careful.
Price: You are paying for the style, not functionality.

conclusion: only good if you want a steamer type humidifier and are turned off by cheap looking Vicks style steamer.

Color Name: Silver
I don't write reviews often, but am really upset that I wasted so much money on this humidifier. My husband got this for me because I have frequent nose bleeds from the dry air. We used it for one week and was pleased with it because it was so quiet. I didn't like the hassle of having to take it apart daily to refill the water, but put up with it because it was cute. On the eighth day, I tried to turn it on but it wouldn't work. At all. The little blue light didn't even turn on. I took it apart and found a bunch of calcified deposits. The company states that it wasn't covered under the warranty because the instructions state that it should be "cleaned often." We had only used it for one week. Only buy this product if you are willing to take it apart and clean it almost daily (waste of time) because this poorly constructed piece of equipment is otherwise a huge waste of money. On a side note, we bought another product from them, the Max space heater. Although it still works, it doesn't work very well unless you're sitting about a foot away from it. We got another space heater that was about the same price and works infinitely better. I'm through with their products.

We bought this humidifier because I have asthma and a humidifier really helps me to breathe. It only lasts several hours and you have to refill it 2 times a day. You have to clean it every few days and it is a PAIN to clean, there are a few tiny parts and a ball in the middle that had to be scrubbed hart to get the mineral deposits off, it is such a terrible task. Way too inconvenient1 Go with a Crane humidifier, my daughter has one in her room and it lasts over 48 hours non-stop. You can even feel the humidity in the air so you know that it's working. I just bought a Crane for my bedroom as well. I will be showing Fred the front door!

I bought this humidifier several years ago - mainly because it was the only humidifier I ran across that didn't look like some big, plastic, medical equipment. It has work really well. The design is great! Super easy to fill and clean without a ton of parts. While it doesn't recede completely, it is at least whimsical and fun and like all Swizz designs, elegant and clean.

If you are looking for a relatively basic but very stylish humidifier, Fred is the perfect choice. Fred is warm air humidifier with a few basic buttons which glow a futuristic blue at night. Most humidifies in this price range have more functions and larger water tanks, but look designed for a drab hospital. Although made of plastic, Fred feels very sturdy and solid. As far as humidifiers go, it looks cool. You won't need to hide it.The only complaint is the water container only last for 4 hours on high and 8 hours on low.

I've seen a negative review about this and I want everyone to know that the review is entirely reasonable. The review is that it can strip paint and that it leaks. This is a HOT STEAM product. If you want a simple humidifier, buy a humidifier. This product is very nice in a bathroom before jumping in the tub to have a sauna feel. I have also used it in my bedroom, and it has not harmed the paint in my rather large room nor has is messed up my carpet in any way. Still, in small spaces, I can see how this thing could be a problem-- as in, somewhere that you would not want hot steam. Use common sense and decide, if a normal humidifier doesn't suit your unusual needs, get this! It is HOT steam! Just like it says. Buy understanding that the product description is accurate.

I've had this humidifier for 2 years and I'm getting another one for my downstairs. It steams my room wonderfully without leaving white mist. I use tap water and once every couple of months, i clean it with a q-tip and some vinegar. When I first got it, the valve that controls the water flow was not properly seated and it was dumping out water, but I read the manual and figured out how to set it back where it goes. Let me point out, I tested this in my tub before leaving it out where any leaks could be an issue. It is plastic, so you never know if a seam wasn't sealed right. Since then, this has been a pretty and functional humidifier for my modern design bedroom. I feel like if you're having issues with it, read your manual and then call the manufacturer if you can't figure it out.
