The Ultrasonic Personal Humidifier and Diffuser is fantastic for a small room, as it features a 750 ml tank but runs up to 8 hours and humidifies a room up to 100 sq. ft. The detachable power cord allows users to easily add or remove water from the tank or base.
The Ultrasonic Personal Humidifier from Crane can be used by parents looking for natural alternatives to cough medicine and other croup, colds and cough remedies, as it increases the moisture in the air. A Crane Humidifier can be used with persistent dry coughs and congestion from newborn babies right through to toddlers and adults.
If your child is coughing at night, you can leave the humidifier running all night as it is whisper quiet. Our humidifier reviews show that parents that have a child with cough and cold symptoms or congestion are finding this to be a best buy for a baby humidifier or child’s vaporiser. Croup in children, and coughing up phlegm or mucus are difficult to deal with, as they can disrupt a baby’s sleep, however a Crane humidifier can be used in all these situations. Many doctors recommend cool mist humidifiers.
If your child has asthma or a breathing condition we suggest checking with your GP or a health professional to see if a humidifier or vaporiser would be suitable to use.
It features an optional night light that softly glows changing colours – from white to green to blue to pink etc, simply push the button to stay on the colour you prefer, or turn the night light function off altogether.
Why Should I Use a Humidifier?
The real question is why shouldn’t you? Humidifiers add essential moisture to indoor air that air conditioners and heaters can remove. Having the right balance of moisture in the air can relieve congestion from the common cold and soothe dry and persistent cough, croup, dry skin and eyes, and irritated sinuses. Perfect for babies, adults, and everyone in between, a humidifier’s additional moisture thins the mucus in the sinuses, which may make it easier to breathe. And we know that when it comes down to your family’s health, you’re all about breathing easy! Even if you’re feeling great, our Crane Humidifiers are must-haves.
Is This Suitable for Babies and Toddlers?
Yes, this unit is designed for use with your baby or toddler and the range of fun designs makes it easy to find something your little one will love. The cool mist technology makes it safe to have in the home, unlike hot steam vaporisers which can be a burns hazard.
Humidifier or Vaporiser?
Humidifier is the name in the US for what is usually called a Vaporiser (sometimes spelled as vapouriser or vapourizer) in NZ and Australia. It is important to note that Crane Adorable, Drop and Travel Humidifier/Vaporisers are Cool Mist Ultrasonic Vaporisers, not to be confused with warm mist or steam vaporisers. We use the terms Humidifier and Vaporiser interchangeably when referring to Crane products.
Which is Better: Warm Mist or Cool Mist?
The major difference is that a Warm Mist Humidifier is heating the water to produce steam vapour. Cool Mist Humidifiers use an Ultrasonic Nebulizer that vibrates at a very high frequency to produce an extra fine water mist. When it comes to humidifying a room, there is not much of a difference between the two types – both are equally effective. However, paediatricians and parents alike recommend Cool Mist Humidifiers for babies and children because there is no heating element, which could be a safety risk for a child. Cool Mist Humidifiers can also save money on energy costs.
Can I use Essential Oils with my Crane Ultrasonic Humidifier and Diffuser?
Yes. Unlike traditional Crane Humidifiers, this new model with ‘diffuser’ function has a water tank which is resistant to oil damage.
A Humidifier Is a Common Baby Registry Item. Why Does My Baby Need One?
Newborns are Obligate Nasal Breathers, meaning that they can only breathe in through their nose for the first 4-6 months of their lives. Their nostrils are so small that even the tiniest clog can make everything from feeding to sleeping difficult and frustrating. Perhaps more importantly, the American Academy of Paediatrics advises against using over-the-counter cold medication for children under the age of 6. For these reasons, many paediatricians and parents recommend using Cool Mist Humidifiers.
What is the Best Way to Clean my Humidifier?
It’s simple. Regular cleaning will keep your humidifier running smoother, longer. We highly recommend emptying the water tank and basin after each use and disinfecting them at least once a week with water and a few capfuls of white vinegar. Please check the manual for further instructions.
Do I need a Filter to run my Humidifier?
Nope. We’re all about simple, clean design, so our humidifiers work perfectly without a filter. One might be necessary if you notice a fine white dust collecting near your Crane you can also switch to distilled water to lower the dust-building mineral content. Crane Demineralisation Filters remove excess minerals, reducing the white dust so your air (and your home) stays clean.

After months of suffering with extremely bad sinus I come across the crane very unsure at 1st if it was going to help at all but I was willing to try anything! I now have it on every night on a low setting, I notice the change as soon as the crane is on! The best money Iâve spent we now have one for the kids as well!

I am loving this Crane Humidifier and Diffuser! When I first heard about humidifier’s and what they were good for and why you would want one, I thought that they sounded great except for the fact that I like to use essential oils in my children’s rooms when they are sick and the humidifier’s that I was looking at couldn’t be used with them. I was so happy when I found this product that can do both! It works really well and gives me the best of both worlds and has a long diffusing time which means that I can leave it on almost all night. A really great product that definitely helps with those coughs and colds (anything that helps my kids sleep well even when they are sick definitely gets the tick of approval from me!).

I brought one of these at the Baby show after talking to the wonderful knowledgeable staff, cleared up my little ones cough overnight! Works fantastically with her heat pump!
