Crane Drop EE5301 Features
This small and compact ultrasonic humidifier has some great features.
- One of the best is the Automatic Shutoff. An automatic shutoff sensor shuts off the unit when it goes out of the water to protect it from overheating.
- The unit controls the variable control knob. Very simple but effective.
- A 360-degree mist nozzle is excellent for pointing the mist right where you need it.
Crane Drop EE5301 Noise level
The Crane humidifier makes a low steady hum noise. Most of the time, you will not hear it. The other sounds around are louder.
Crane Drop EE5301 Maintenance And Upkeep
Crane Drop EE5301 is pretty easy to set up. Please take off the tank, fill it with the water, and that’s it. It is recommended to use distilled or filtered water.
Also, place it away from electronics because areas around the humidifier become wet.
Crane recommends cleaning humidifiers every week.
The tank size is quite ok, but still not enough. So you will need to refill it a few times a day unless you use it on the lowest setting. On the lowest, it can work up to 24hrs but then the mist output is very low.
Crane Drop EE5301 Vs. Other Humidifiers
Crane Drop EE5301 humidifier is perfect for maintaining the necessary humidifier level in smaller rooms, for example, bedrooms. It doesn’t have many features, so let’s look at competitors.
By design and features most similar is the Pure Enrichment MistAire™ Ultrasonic Mist Humidifier, but it has a smaller water tank and weaker mist output. Pure Enrichment MistAire Cloud is closer by performance, but the design is more suitable for babies and kids.
Other humidifiers worth taking a look at are:
- Sunluna SL-AH001 Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier. It is not a known brand, but it has a sleek design; it is quiet and has the lowest price.
- Honeywell HCM-350 Cool Mist Humidifier is an old model but still actively selling because it is reliable, trustworthy, and good. However, it is also more expensive than Crane and other similar humidifiers.
- GENIANI Top Fill Cool Mist Humidifier. It also has a 1-gallon water tank. It can output from 0.14 to 0.7 pints per hour of moisture and, with the lowest setting, can work even 60 hours. Plus, it has an essential oil tray.
Crane Drop EE5301 Summary
Crane Drop EE5301 is suitable for small rooms; it has a unique, attractive look, is easy to fill, has a very detailed and helpful instruction manual, etc. Overall this is a good humidifier.
