Frequently Bought Together
Compact, easy-to-use humidifier converts cold tap water into warm, soothing mist. View larger.
For those who experience cold and cough symptoms, there are few things more soothing than breathing in moist air, especially during dry winter months or when cold symptoms are at their worst. The Warm Mist Humidifier adds moisture to the air by heating the water to produce steam. The two steam output settings then emit the bacteria-free steam into the room.
Medicine Cup Allows for Medicated Vapor Steam Action
The Warm Mist Humidifier includes a medicine cup, designed to hold liquid steam medication, which is activated by the rising warm mist. The medication cup is dishwasher safe and removable for easy cleaning. The medicine cup works with any vapor steam medication and increases the soothing benefits of the warm mist.
Provides relief from sinus irritation, nasal congestion, dry cough, and cold and flu symptoms. View larger.
This compact, easy-to-use humidifier has a removable tank that fits easily in most sinks for quick filling and cleaning. It also features an attractive blue LED dial for operation and adjustments, even when the room is dark. An auto-shut-off feature turns off the humidifier when the tank is empty and a tip-over switch adds additional safety when the unit is accidentally tilted while in operation.
Straightforward, Easy Operation
Not only are Crane humidifiers stylish, but they are also easy to use and include an auto-shut-off feature that engages when the water tank is empty to ensure safety. The soothing warm mist helps provide for a good night sleep.
Operating the Crane Warm Mist Humidifier requires only a few easy steps. Simply remove the water tank from the unit, unscrew the tank cap, and fill the water tank under a water faucet. Securely replace the tank cap, making sure the rubber cap seal is in place, and place the water tank back onto the unit. Place the humidifier away from wooden furniture and set it to desired output setting for comfortable room humidification.
If you have a lot of minerals in your tap water, it is recommended to use distilled water or filtered water to prevent mineral built up.
Cleaning and Storage
Frequently cleaning your humidifier is very important. Crane recommends emptying the water in the basin daily, making sure you pour away from the heating element. Disinfect the water basin and tank weekly by using a white vinegar and fresh water solution, let sit for 30 minutes, then rinse. For convenience, the Crane Descaler solution HS-1933 is also available. It is important to disinfect and dry completely before storage.

Both models are very similar in the way they generate steam, but there are a couple of significant differences that makes me prefer the Vicks model over the Crane.
For starters, the low setting of the Crane outputs about the same amount of steam as the high setting of the Vicks, and it turns out that the Crane is a 400 watt unit, while the Vicks is only about 275 watts. I keep the Crane on its low setting overnight in the bedroom, and the water tank is almost empty by morning. The Vicks needs to be on its high setting to go through the same amount of water in the same period of time.
Second, the design of the water tank on the Crane makes it harder to fill than on the Vicks. Neither one has a tank that will fit under my bathroom sink faucet, so I have to fill them in the shower. And although the filler hole on the Crane is wider, it lacks a handle like the Vicks model has, and filling it under the shower faucet is kind of awkward.
Next, once the tank is in place on the Crane model, the bottom of the tank sits in a lot more water than does the Vicks. Not sure this is really a problem, but when you remove the tank for cleaning (there's both daily and weekly cleaning recommended for both), it drips more water on the floor. Also, the filler cap on the Crane has developed a little bit of a musty odor, and again I'm not sure if it's from sitting in more water on a constant basis.
Finally, I find the Crane model to be a bit more difficult to clean than the Vicks.Read more ›
I think I read every review of every humidifier on Amazon. It seemed like every one of them is destined to leak, burst into flames or turn into a level 3 biohazard. In the end I decided that I agreed with another reviewer and it just made sense to buy one of the cheaper ones and see how it worked out.
To start off this review I think I have to let everyone know a little basic biology. Any time there is standing water it is a potential breeding ground for mold, bacteria, etc. This isn't only true in your little Crane humidifier--it is true everywhere on the planet. If you have ever had a leak behind a wall you know how quickly standing water can turn into a problem and fast. However, there is not an abundant food source in your humidifier so the risk is manageable with some precautions. I'm just going to list them in no real order of importance because they are all important:
1) Don't let water sit in your unit when it is off. This includes the water in the little reservoir below the big tank of water. Yes, empty that out too if you won't be using it for a while.
2) It is much easier to prevent a mold or bacterial overgrowth than it is to clean up once one starts. In fact if you get any serious overgrowth (which can happen to any humidifier) it probably makes sense to just throw it out and start over.
3) Clean the plastic on your unit with a thymol based cleaner. I use ...Read more ›
