Crane EE-8064 Germ Defense Ultrasonic Humidifier

The Crane EE-8064 Germ Defense Ultrasonic Humidifier is a fantastic, feature-filled ultrasonic humidifier. It is kind of like having two humidifiers in one. Previously I’ve opted for humidifiers that were simple and didn’t cost too much, but this time I thought I’d try one that was a little more expensive but offered me many different options. Needless to say, I haven’t been disappointed.

This is an ultrasonic humidifier with both cold mist and warm mist functionality, meaning you get the best of both worlds in this regard. If you’re prone to coughs and colds during winter, you will want to take advantage of the warm mist setting which emits a soothing mist around the room that will ease your symptoms. Equally, if you have children and are worried about their safety you can keep it on cold mist and still get all the benefits of humid, comfortable air. This means relief from chapped lips, dry skin, nosebleeds and much more.

One thing I immediately noticed compared to previous humidifier is just how long it runs. The Crane EE-8064 goes for around 55 hours. It also creates up to 2.5 gallons of water per day and can fill a room of up to 500 square feet. That’s way more than your average humidifier, and great if, like me, you have a larger home.

The Basics

As mentioned, this is a powerful humidifier. In addition to that, it includes antimicrobial protection which fights the mold and mildew that can affect other humidifiers. It also means it does not need a filter, which saves you a little extra cleaning and means you won’t need to replace that part regularly.

A great feature which I’ve never seen before is the 360 degree nozzle. This allows me to direct the mist anywhere in the room. Considering the power of this humidifier, it’s also remarkably quiet and uses very little energy (less than a light bulb !).

The straightforward digital display means that the unit is easy to set up. First thing you will need to do is remove the water tank from the unit and fill the water tank under the tap. Securely place the water tank back onto the unit once that’s done and you’re away ! Just place the humidifier on a suitable surface and set the output how you would like it.

The Verdict

This is a great ultrasonic humidifier that is well worth every cent. With a range of useful features, warm mist and cold mist functionality, and no need for a filter, it’s once of the easiest to use humidifiers I’ve ever owned. It’s great that it has a 360 degree nozzle because you can reach anywhere in the room without having to move the unit itself around. It has a beautiful design and looks great in my room compared to the fairly cumbersome, unattractive models I’ve had in the past. Quite simply, if you want a humidifier that does it all, I recommend the Crane EE-8064 highly.
