As one of the newest models to our room humidifier offering, the Blue Drop humidifier by Crane offers convenience and
cool mist humidification in one very unique design. Shaped like a droplet of the relief-providing moisture that this humidifier offers, the Blue drop
humidifier uses ultrasonic technology to hygienic, convenient relief. How does the Blue Drop compare to other models, and how could it help you? After
testing our showroom model, here's the skinny.
What I like about the Crane Tear Drop Humidifier
The first thing you'll notice about this model is the shape and style. It's not your typical rectangular humidifier, instead
it is shaped like a drop of
water. The see-through tank lets know exactly how much water is left, and though slimmer than other cool mist humidifiers, the Blue Drop is wide enough at
its base to be stable. The top nozzle also rotates, give you more directional control over the mist than with the Adorable
animal series of humidifiers.
While I really like the design and style, you shouldn't overlook how well it works. With a tank that holds nearly a gallon of water, the Blue Drop
ultrasonic humidifier can help to put early two and a half gallons of moisture back into the air in your home. For most, this is enough to keep your
bedroom feeling more comfortable during the dry winter months.
At just under $50, this model is rather inexpensive. Granted it lacks some of the features that you maybe with more expensive models, but it
also lacks the bigger price tag that goes along with those extra features. Simple and easy to operate, the Blue Drop is as easy to use as it is to fill
the water tank, plug into the wall and turn a dial.
Because the Tear Drop is an ultrasonic humidifier, it's very quiet. When running, even at its highest setting, there is little more noise
than a low hum. Since this model is also a manual model with no bright LCD or LED display, not only is it quiet, but there's no additional light
to keep you up at night.
What I do not like about the Crane Tear Drop Humidifier
The lack of a hygrostat can be something of a hassle at times. If you want an accurate reading on the current humidity in the room, you will
need to get an additional, separate hygrometer.
Though this model is rather inexpensive, the lack of a demineralization cartridge can be problematic for some. If you have public/city water,
chances are your mineral content is pretty low and you'll be able to use this humidifier with no issues. If you live in more rural areas and have
spring or well water, the mineral content in that water could lead to a white dust being emitted from the humidifier. The filter/demineralization
cartridge corrects this, but the purchase of this is separate.
Like many products, you get about what you pay for. Aside from the aesthetic appeal, the Blue Drop Crane humidifier is an easy to use, basic
machine. It will get the job done in terms of delivering soothing moisture and can help with asthma and eczema symptoms as well as general symptoms from
breathing in extremely dry air. There are few features, but this cool mist humidifier is inexpensive and very easy to operate. If budget is a concern,
this is definitely a model to consider.
