Chicago winters are miserable. We bought this so that we could all sleep better, and it does its job. My 2 year old has been sleeping much better with this. It does make a little bit of noise but it is pretty quiet compared to cool mist humidifiers and is just like a little bit of white noise.

A lot of reviews here mention the buildup of scale on the heating element. This is going to be an issue no matter what warm mist humidifier you use. Cool mist humidifiers use filters that can get yucky and moldy and need to be replaced, so you pick your poison. Personally, I'd rather deal with the warm-mist one. The water gets boiled, does it not? So how much bacteria is going to really be released into the air?

Some reviewers, perhaps those who may have skipped their high school science classes, seem to blame the humidifier itself for the "disgusting stuff that grows in this humidifier." The buildup on the heating element can be a problem, particularly if you have hard water and run the humidifier daily like we do. It's not the humidifier, it is the water that's the problem. Our water is so bad that I am thinking about whether it would be more cost effective to buy distilled water for this thing. Or we could just fix the water softener...

This is a hard product to rate. It does have a HUGE truly does ease the pain and discomfort of my child's colds/coughs and makes a big difference in helping her sleep. It is also convenient that it is filter-free (it's washable vs. having to replace it) and will run all night on one tank. But here's the many others have stated, it is IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean unless you do it thoroughly after every use. I, like most moms, do not have the time for that, especially when my child needs it at nap and night time everyday. I realize that this is a WARM mist humidifier, but I didn't know that it could burn you if too close. And here's the kicker...I can't put it up on the furniture to keep it out of child's reach because it damages the finish on the furniture! I don't know if it's the heat/moisture/medication or a combo of all three, but it has made the finish on two different pieces of furniture sticky (in two different sized rooms on two different occasions). And with it on the floor, my curious toddler has gotten out of bed to "sample" the liquid medication that was left over in the morning!

Cracked After Less than a Year

By KellyBeth

from Little Rock, AR

Comments about Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier:

While affordable, this humidifier is junk. Virtually every piece on it cracked at some point before the whole unit just stopped working. We have replaced it with an Essick humidifier that performs much better.


Best humidifier I've had so far!

By Lily594

from Denver, CO

Comments about Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier:

I have tried several types of humidifiers. I had one of those cool mist humidifiers from another brand and it was the most finicky thing I have ever used. Had to be emptied every day after use and every few days. I wanted something that wouldn't require as much upkeep. This humidifier is just that. Parts of it can be cleaned in the dishwasher and it's just super easy to take care of! Love it!

Comments about Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier:

An older unit suddenly got LOUD on low (unit #2). It was replaced. Now a newer unit purchased last fall (unit 3) was refilled and turned on this morning. Just like unit 2, it sounds like a jet plane (sigh). Something is obviously going wrong with heat sensors or temperature control etc.


Good humidifier except for the maintenance

By taximom212

from Louisville, KY

Comments about Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier:

This works great humidifying the air. However, the big drawback is that it collects hard water deposits on the heating element. I clean it at LEAST twice a week with a vinegar soak and a toothbrush to try to get all the white buildup off, to no avail. Some comes off, some does not. I would not buy it again. The buildup causes it to be noisy.


Very happy with the purchase of this product!

Comments about Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier:

I use the humidifier at the onset of a cold. Effective in minimizing the symptoms.


Not worth the money

Comments about Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier:

Product does not perform as advertised, customer support is a joke. Lesson learned, avoid products with the name Vicks and Kaz.

      Registered for this item on my baby registry. Loved to have one run all the time as a little girl so I wanted one for my baby. With babies it's great if they are stuffy because you can add the liquid vicks that's not harmful to them. Great item!!

      Comments about Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier:

      This item was clearly used. It had all kinds of mineral deposits built up on the heating element. Also there was still some nasty patchouli oil gunk in the vaporizing cup.

      Disappointed at BRU for putting this back on the shelves, and wasting my time. I still have yet to return it, as it sits in my trunk, for a convenient time to go 10 miles outside my usual radius.

      We've been such good customers. :(

      • Bedroom

      Comments about Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier:

      I gave this 4 stars because I only award 5 stars if I really, really love something. This humidifier works well and its function is consistent with others of this type. The water tank can be taken off the unit and filled with water. I have not tried the medicine dispenser portion. The humidifier has 2 settings and a full tank of water will generally last about 8 hours on the high setting. Good for a bedroom. Steam is visible but can not be directed in a particular direction. This unit puts out only warm steam. The heating unit is supposed to be more resistant to mineral build-up but I haven't owned it long enough to attest to that.
