Avalon Premium Cool Mist 2.8L Humidifier is by far my favorite humidifier! I’m used Vicks, Safety 1st and a couple of off-brand humidifiers for my family. The Vicks needed filters that had to be changed often, then the fan started making a “clacking” sound. The Safety 1st worked well for about a month, until the motor died. The other two humidifiers didn’t push the mist out, as much as I would like. Avalon’s humidifier is completely silent, can push the mist out so much it looks like a smoke machine. Also, there’s a color-changing LED light that is perfect for my kids’ rooms.
This humidifier is very simple to operate. There is one knob to turn on the power and adjust the mist amount. The button just above the knob is to activate the LED. The LED light can gradually change colors or you can set it to a certain color for steady use. The button will turn blue when the humidifier is in operation. Once the water tank is empty, the button turns red and the humidifier will automatically shut off. The humidifier will also automatically shut off when the water tank is lifted from the base.
When filling the water tank there is a large mouth opening that I prefer. I can quickly fill the tank with the bathroom faucet, instead of other ones I’ve owned where you need a small stream of water. The large mouth makes it easier to clean, plus easier to remove all the water. This humidifier also has a small cleaning brush attached to the base. Located on the right side of the base you will find a small ventilated drawer. Pull the drawer out to find pads inside for moistening with essential oils. For my head cold I enjoy peppermint oil in my diffuser.
Overall, this has been perfect for my family’s needs. The unit is silent, easy to position the mist flow, the mist amount has a large range to fit your needs and the LED light is a feature my kids love. I love the automatic shutoff when the water tank is empty! The Vicks and Safety 1st humidifiers I’ve used did not shutoff once empty. Thanks for watching!
