I was so looking forward to trying this product but to my surprise it did not work. After reading the instructions, I filled the product, powered it on, and nothing happened at all. Not one bit of steam petered out of the inhaler. The steam controller did not work either, it was stuck on high. I might also add that it almost looked like it was previously used. Back it goes and I'm not chancing another dud. I'm usually satisfied with most of the QVC products that I order. Good luck to the rest of you that decide to order one!

I bought one of these for my mom when she was in/out of the hospital with a bout of viral bronchitis. She had a warm mist humidifier running, but the irritation still caused severe fits of coughing. After checking with her doctor, she started using this multiple times a day and it definitely helped reduce the irritation of her throat. She kept it next to her and whenever she began to cough, she'd fire MyPureMist up and found relief. For that reason alone, I give it 5 stars. But then when I got a bad cold, I wished I had one of these myself. When the cold persisted for more than a week, I finally broke down and bought one for myself and it helped relieve the cough.. Sure, I could have done it the old fashioned way with a pot of boiling water and towel, but when you're sick, especially when you're sick for more than a few days, the last thing you want to do is to be even more go through the trouble of doing this. But even more importantly, if the cough is debilitating, there is no time to waste. With the MyPureMist, you're inhaling steam in less than a minute. So now, when I'm sick I just keep it next to me and use it intermittently through the day and night, just for a few minutes at a time. The first few times, it had a plastic odor, so I just ran it a few times without inhaling the steam until the odor was gone.
I don't have a use for this on a daily basis, I use it just when I have a cold. Is it worth $150 for the once a year when this happens? Since there's no substitute for breathing, it has been worth it for me and especially for my mom.

Ive had this a little over a year, i use it when my sinus get bad, and they get really bad in winter. It really helps a lot, was a little expensive but so far so good.

I love my PurMist however it just quit working. Haven't used it that often and haven't had it even a year . A lot of money for something that doesn't last. When it works, I give it 4 stars. Now I give it 2stars.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Vicki Rae It stopped working on me too!!!!!
I could not believe it was not working! I was still paying on it and for the price i'm really surprised. It was not cheap in dollars but in quality it a piece of junk! I'm only hoping Q gives me a full refund. I had toss the box out figuring I have this forever but it did not work out sadlly. I don't want a replacement based on all the bad reviews.

Mypurmist worked great for almost 2 months but it started cutting out after 1 minute. I agree with the other reviews as the product didn't live up to my expectations. My husband went to their usage book via Internet. He was able to get it to operate for 6 minutes but with 5 restarts. The product is defective and breaks down to soon.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mom of K2 Disappointed
I had high hopes for this product as I suffer year round from allergies. I received the item promptly and that is the only positive I can give it. I read the instructions and immediately went to use the product. It worked maybe 2x while never actually finishing the water in the water well. It could have been very helpful to me, but then the product basically stopped working. It would work for about 30 seconds and then cut off. I would give it a moment to cool down and it would work for about 20 seconds and cut off. It finally got to the point where it cuts on and immediately cuts off. So very disappointed in this item!!!
