Follow Directions For Perfect Results After reading all of the reviews, I made sure to read the directions very carefully when using this unit. When I followed the directions explicitly the unit worked perfectly... If you add too much water to the unit or don't fully engage the steam spout it won't work. As soon as I follow the directions the unit worked like a charm. This is a brilliant concept and although the product is a little bit finicky if you follow the step-by-step every time it works great. I would highly recommend. 12-20-13
Love it! I bought this for my husband and daughters boyfriend. My husband travels and this is perfect and he loves it! My daughters boyfriend suffers from severe dry sinus and he loves this too. Perfect size for travel or for a night stand. Came back to order 2 more and not available. Will keep checking back to order more! 11-20-13
AMAZING! What an incredible little machine. I could not be happier. It sits on my desk at work and I receive nothing but positive comments all day long about what a clever little unit it is. Everyone wants one! Just went online to order more and discovered it's out of stock, I hope you get more soon because I have lots of coworkers who would like one of their own. Great work, QVC! Super item :-) 11-19-13
Piece Of Junk! Gave me about 30 seconds of mist then had to keep banging on it for more steam. Gave up and unplugged it. Worthless! 11-16-13
Love It! I have this on my desk at work and everyone keeps asking me where I got it. Of course I say QVC. This works GREAT!!!! 11-08-13
worst purchase This humidifer was uncontrolable. There was no difference in the mist stream if it was on minimum or the max. It would use a 16oz bottle of water in about 2 hours. I sent it back to qvc. 02-10-13
Best little humidifier I purchased this product and am very pleased with the portability and quality of the product. I have had some of the isses that other people complained about but I feel that it was my misuse of the product and not the product itself. You need to put the lid on properly so the water doesn't leak.. the spout needs to be adusted correctly for the steam to come out. It gives great moisture without turning it all the way up. I purchased this for my office that has a dry atmosphere. It works perfectly and have had many people inquire as to how it works and where I got it! I also take the time to dry it out before I leave for the day, so its not soaking all nite in water when not in use. I want to purchase a few more. 01-05-13
Love this compact unit! I am really loving this little discovery. I have severe atopic dermatitis and have noticed a few wrinkles developing on my face which I would like to help nip in the bud! I purchased two of these units; one for me and one for a gift. While I have a humidifier on my furnace, I decided to put this on my end table for an added boost. The light does not bother me as I can fall asleep with all the lights on if I am tired enough! (I generally use a very cozy sleep mask, anyway) I feel it gives off less light than a regular nightlight would. I think the light is helpful so you don't accidentally knock it over if you wake up during the night reaching for something, which I often do. I have not experienced any leaking or moisture around the unit at all. Give this a try. 12-09-12
GOOD FOR MY BOYS ROOM I loved the idea of just having to put in the water bottle and everything was set. It works great however the water bottle was supposed to last about 12 hrs on the minimum setting but doesn't even last all night. It did leak from the bottom when putting in the water bottle but then just found out that if you hold it at a certain angle it will not leak. Overall, it is ok. 12-01-12
This one is going back After buying several humidifiers and being disappointed with each and every one of them, I was hoping that this one would be different. It sounded so easy to use! Just fill up a plastic water bottle and turn it on. No filters to clean or soak in vinegar. No gunky build-up in the machine. No having to drag the thing to the tub to fill it up. And it's so small you can pack it in your suitcase and take it with you on vacation. Lesson learned, if it sounds to good to be true, it is. The first problem with this humidifier is when you go to put the bottle upside-down onto the machine, the piece you attach to the bottle still allows water to be dumped everywhere. Also the main problem that I had was that the machine lasted only about 2-3 uses before it stopped releasing the "steam". After several failed attempts to get it to work again, I packed the machine up and sent it on it's way back for a refund. It's definitely first on the long list of poorly designed humidifiers. 11-28-12
I wanted a humidifier NOT a night light! I live in Colorado which is VERY dry all year round but especially in the winter. I have a larger humidifier that I sleep with and with the colder weather creeping up I wanted to add even more moisture to my bedroom. I bought this to put on my bedside table but the light is WAY too bright. I noticed that it actually interrupted my sleep during the week that I used it. I covered the little light on the front but the entire top of the unit lights up also - which makes it counterproductive to a good night's sleep (IMO). I also agree with others that the mist falls straight down and I never felt like it was really effective. I haven't had any problems with leaking but even on the lowest setting I barely got 6 or 7 hours out of it. Unfortunately I will probably be sending it back. 11-15-12
LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't understand all the negative reviews. I ordered 3, they all work great. I put one on my nightstand and run it all night on low. One bottle lasts 2 nights. The other one I put in our TV room and run it all day on low. It too works great. The only problem I have is that my husband has to change the bottle for me because I'm disabled and can't do it with one hand without squishing the bottle. Not a big deal. I think they're great and the other one I'm giving to my daughter who's away at college. May have to buy one more for my other daughter. Love the small size. I hate those big clunky humidifiers that soak everything. I highly recommend. 11-14-12
