CRANE EE-4109 Hello Kitty Adorable 1 Gallon Cool Mist Ultrasonic – What You Should Know
This machine is available in many different animal like characters including the infamous SpongeBob Squarepants. The Crane EE-4109 Hello Kitty Humidifier is a very cute and simple unit that’s ideal for your children or even your baby. This is a cool mist machine that runs very quiet and doesn’t produce any heat. As a result, it poses less of a danger to your child while it’s in their room.
With that said, it was a little difficult at first to keep our daughter away from the machine. Since it looks like one of her favorite cartoon characters she’s always trying to play with it or put her hand up by the mist. We don’t catch her doing that much now, so that’s a good thing.
What is it?
The Crane EE-4109 Hello Kitty Adorable unit can hold up to 1 gal of water and can mist up to 2.1 gal of moisture per day (24 hours). One a 1 gal tank you can run this machine consistently for up to 10 hours (depending on how high you dial your mist). This unit functions best small in size rooms up to 250 ft.² and works great in your bedroom. Since this machine has been designed for kids, it also includes a very nice night light to keep your child comfortable while they sleep.
Also, if you’ve used your machine for an extended period of time and your water runs out, this humidifier will automatically itself shut off. This a great way to save energy, extend the life of your machine and keep your children safe.
What I liked?
Not only does this machine work great at increasing the moisture in our room, but it does so very quietly. There are some minor gurgling noises when set on it’s highest setting, but I didn’t find it that bothersome when compared to others I’ve heard in the past. The Crane EE-4109 Hello Kitty Adorable Ultrasonic Humidifier does a good job on our daughter’s dry skin and helps her sleep better at night when she’s sick.
Another thing I liked about this unit was how easy it was to re-fill and clean. You don’t need to purchase any filters or cleaning cartridges dues to it’s ultrasonic capabilities, but you do need to clean often manually. As for refilling, since it’s only a 1 gallon tank you shouldn’t have to worry about lifting anything too heavy consistently back and forth.
What I didn’t Like?
One thing I thought was a little bothersome was how bright the night light can be. To make sure our daughter falls asleep, we dim it down a little bit by placing a magazine or anything that we can find to cover it. Other than that, if you are buying this specifically for your child you may get annoyed by how much they may feel the need to play with it. After a few weeks our daughter lost interest. Although it does help to place it on an elevated surface so they can’t reach it.
To be honest I was a little surprised at how good this machine actually is. I thought they might be over hyped because of their appearance and kind of expected an average product at best. But, this humidifier does an amazing job and is one of the few machines that we actually trust is safe with our children.
*There are a lot of reviews on Amazon that mention their machine has stopped working only after a year or so. Make sure to clean your machine regularly, use distilled water when you can and be careful not to place this machine on carpet or on any kind of towel surface. The fan is located at the bottom and it can easily cause damage. I’ve had this unit for 2 years as of Oct 2012 and ours still works.
