Crane Cube Cool Mist Humidifier Review Description

The Crane Cube Cool Mist Humidifier is an ultrasonic humidifier that adds humidity to the air at a very low price. This is one of the few models under $25 that is reliable and powerful. It helps to relieve symptoms which occurs when the air is too dry such as colds, coughs, sinus irritation, and nose bleeds. The antimicrobial features reduce the amount of mold and bacteria growth in the air. The auto-off function after a maximum of 15 hours or once the water runs out as well as a variable mist setting makes this humidifier really simple to use.


The Crane Cube Cool Mist Humidifier is easy to use. To start, unscrew the water tank cap from the bottom of the water tank and fill the tank up with cold water. It’s suggested that you use distilled water or tap water if your standard water isn’t hard water. If you have to use hard water, a demineralization filter is suggested to keep everything in working order and cleaned efficiently. Screw the cap back onto the tank and place the tank onto the humidifier base, making sure that everything fits perfectly.

Plug the power cord into a wall socket and turn on the humidifier by adjusting the control knob. If everything is working properly then the blue LED power indicator light will illuminate. This will shut off automatically once the humidifier runs out of water, or 15 hours have passed. Unplug the humidifier before removing or refilling the water tank.


Cleaning the Crane Cube Cool Mist Humidifier is also very simple. Just turn the humidifier off and unplug it before any cleaning. Empty water from the water tank and humidifier base. Wipe down the humidifier base daily. Then refill the water tank and place it back on the humidifier base.

Weekly you should fill the water tank with 2 tablespoons white vinegar and warm water. Shake it vigorously and allow it to sit for a half hour. Then shake again and empty the water and vinegar mixture. Rinse out the water tank well before refilling it. Do the same for the humidifier base, allowing it to soak in the vinegar and water mixture for a half-hour without immersing it in water. Rinse the humidifier base and dry it off with a cloth or paper towel.

My Recommendation

If you want a very inexpensive humidifier with a lot of great features and a compact size, this one will suit you well. The Crane Cube Cool Mist Humidifier is great for small spaces and requires little maintenance compared to other humidifiers. Since it is an ultrasonic humidifier, you won’t have to purchase replacement parts which in addition to the energy efficiency of this model will keep your costs low. It’s also a great humidifier for a child’s room because it sprays a cool mist, has an LED light, and doesn’t look like a toy like other Crane models do. It also comes with a one year warranty, protecting you from any defects.
