Crane Warm Steam 1 Gallon Vaporizer - Yellow is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I didn't need anything fancy just something that would help our room not be so dry at night! We sleep with a fan and an air purifier so I was waking up with a sore throat. Not only did the humidifier help with the dryness but it also helped keep our always cold room warm! Win win! I see people complained about not having an on and off switch... it hasn't been a problem for us. I simply am unplugging something vs. flipping a switch. Either one is not difficult.... It's a nice, affordable, straight to the point product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not many (cheap) options for a warm mist humidifier... Given the limited choices, this is a good one. Pros: Cheap. Water heats to a boiling point, so fewer concerns about bacteria. It gives off a decent amount of steam with no salt added, and more steam with salt (though even 1/4 tsp significantly reduced the running time). According to the safety specs, it does have an auto off sensor when the tank empties. It's fairly quiet with no salt, though quite a bit louder with salt (more intense boiling). Design is sort of cheerful, and compact. Cons: The yellow of the water drum is paler than shown in the photos, more translucent. I wish it had a longer cord (it's maybe 4ft, which is too short for most of the oddly placed outlets in my current rental). Also wish it was sold in stores and not just online; even with free shipping, it's far more convenient to just drive to the store & pick one up. But those are the compromises for the low cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great warm mist humidifier This is a great humidifier, better than the cool mist types because it gives off actual steam. No need for filters, no worries about bacteria because the water actually heats up to the boiling point. Note that the addition of salt matters -- it will give off more steam with salt added but will also not run as long. If you experiment a bit, you can figure out the right amount. Also caution if you have pets or small children who are likely to knock the unit over, since the water does get hot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly happy. Works as described. I haven't woken up with dry sinuses since I started using the vaporizer. Slightly noisy, but not unpleasant. Has no on/off switch and has to be unplugged after each use. An automatic shut off would be nice, but after all, it was only twenty bucks.

Water Tank & Water Fill-To Line

The removable water tank fits easily in most sinks and is dishwasher safe. The transparent tank will indicate the level of water. The water fill-to line is in the center on the side of the tank, forming a distinct line that goes around the middle of the vaporizer. The vaporizer has an auto-off function and will stop producing steam once the tank is at the minimum level.

Vaporizer Liquids

All medication liquids are to be poured directly into the tank and mixed with the water. Please read the instructions of the inhalant or vapor steam liquid you plan to use. 

Warm Steam Outlet

The warm steam will rise through the top of the unit providing germ free moisture

Power Cord

The power cord is located in the back of the vaporizer. Make sure to locate the vaporizer on an elevated water proof surface.

Tips & Maintenance

Important Tips
If you have a lot of minerals in your tap water, it is recommended to use distilled water or filtered water to prevent mineral built up.


Cleaning and Storage
Frequently cleaning your vaporizer is very important. Crane recommends emptying the water in the basin daily. Disinfect the water basin and tank weekly by using a white vinegar and fresh water solution, let sit for 30 minutes, then rinse. For convenience, the vaporizer tank is also dishwasher safe. 

To clean the steam unit, Soak in about 3½ inches of white vinegar for approximately 10 minutes. After the steam unit is done soaking, with fingers covering the bottom holes of the steam unit, add tap water to the steam outlet. Cover steam outlet with finger from other hand, shake vigorously then empty the water through the steam outlet. Repeat as needed until black particles are no longer emitted and vinegar odor is gone.
