Design and size

- The unit controls the variable control knob. Very simple but effective.
- 360-degree mist nozzle is great to point mist right where you need it.
The Crane humidifier makes a low steady hum noise. Most of the time, you will not hear it, the other sounds around are louder.
Maintenance and upkeep

The tank size is quite ok, but still not enough. You will need to refill it a few times a day.
