  • Breathe Deep & Easy and Say Good-bye to Dry Skin

    Apr 5, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of steam, automatic humidity control, quiet, auto shutoff, lightweight, easy to use and clean
    Cons: Steam is hot so be careful with children and pets

    Summary: We've always used a large cool-mist console-style humidifier in the living room. Not only did it hog floor space, but the humidifier had a large water wheel that sometimes broke or needed replacement filters that were difficult to find. When the last ... read more

  • Cute, quiet and notoriously unreliable

    Feb 6, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet due to absence of fan; large tank; elegant exterior.
    Cons: Unreliable; requires constant attention; poorly supported; energy hog.

    Summary: My unit is a Canadian version sold under the Bionaire brand (model BWM5700-C). It is indistinguishable in external appearance from the Holmes version (apart from the logo). If you like the exterior design of this unit let me assure you: its ... read more

  • This and other Holmes Warm Mist Humidifiers have been bad for me.

    Feb 1, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None.
    Cons: Very short lifespan, for me. Much harder to clean than other models.

    Summary: Well, I just posted a good review of a different brand, so I figured I'd also post a review of the Holmes humidifier (which I previously owned) so I can mention why I got rid of it. I've owned this model, and two smaller 1.6 gal/day Holmes ... read more

  • Glad to be alive

    Jan 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fully automatic with LCD display
    Cons: Health hazard. Short lifespan. Leaks. Very Very difficult to clean.

    Summary: I have used this unit for almost a year. For the first 6 months, this humidifier was fantastic. The unit is nearly fully automatic - except the part of filling the water tank fairly frequently. It has a nice LCD screen showing humidity and your set ... read more

  • Holmes? Never Again!

    Dec 25, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: medicine cup and easy carrying handle
    Cons: ALMOST CAUSED A FIRE, HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE

    Summary: I purchased this Holmes Humidifier for the benefit of adding moisture to my bedroom but more really because my husband likes to sleep to some kind of "noise" at night. Since it is too cold for a fan, I thought a humidifier would be perfect. It was ... read more

  • A BIG THUMBS DOWN!

    Nov 3, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The product worked quickly and effectively. Easy to use.
    Cons: Electronic Display simply stopped working. Cap corrodes and leaks.

    Summary: We purchased this humidifier a year ago in September of 2001. It worked well the first winter. A year later, I plugged it back in to find the display didn't work at all, basically rendering the humidifier useless. All cleaning and storage instructions ... read more

  • Bye-Bye to winter blues!

    May 22, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: pre set humidity, quiet, medication spot
    Cons: small tank, hard to clean

    Summary: We purchased a Holmes Warm mist humidifier model number HM5700 in Dec of 2001. Our house was so dry we were waking up with sore throats every night. We have only had this humidifier for 5 months, but have been very happy with it. Since this humidifier ... read more

  • Good investment, some work involved

    Apr 21, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Digital control/readout, filterless
    Cons: Hard to clean, tank empties quickly

    Summary: Unlike most people, I bought this unit in order to humidify a small room to prevent my guitars from drying out in the arid Coloradan semi-dessert. Cool air units don't raise the humidity nearly fast or high enough and filtered units require constant ... read more

  • Just about perfect

    Apr 12, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Automatic and dependable, quiet.
    Cons: Not silent, water reservoir does run out after 2-3 days

    Summary: I bought this dehumidifier on sale at WalMart for $40 and it has worked great for about 1 month. You set the humidity level you want (I set mine to 45%) and it keeps it at or above that level. If you are having moist weather it does nothing but monitor, ... read more

  • Nice looking but flawed

    Nov 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Digital Control; Digital humidity readout; attractive look
    Cons: Very Hard to clean; Noisy; Practicality not a priority in design

    Summary: Admittedly, I bought the unit on its attractive modern design with its advanced digital control. But after a year of use, I could not longer recommend it due to its design flaws. People living in hard water area should take note in particular, this ... read more

  • Holmes HM-5125

    Oct 24, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet and output appears adequate
    Cons: Tank empties quickly on high setting

    Summary: The holding tank is only 2 gallons! The brochure states that it can run 22 hours on a full tank; this is probably in the low setting which doesn't seem to put much out. It also claims to be sufficient to rooms up to 600 sq. ft. I think that is ... read more

  • Great product with quirks

    Oct 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great features, great size for small-medium rooms. decent price
    Cons: I had to take 2 back to the store because they leaked.

    Summary: Unfortunately the system seemed to offer everything I wanted but I bought 2 and they both leaked and ruined a carpet. I called customer service and they assured me that there was "no" reason for them to leak so I returned. If it only leaked water, it ... read more

  • Humidify Your World During The Cold Dry Winter

    Jan 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Can pre-set humidity control to level you like; Microban filter
    Cons: A bit small ~ only 3.3 gallon tank

    Summary: If you have read some of my past reviews you will know that I own a cool mist humidifier. Well, my mother saw what a difference mine made in the house and decided to go out and buy a humidifier for her own house. My mother chose the Holmes ... read more

  • Sleep better

    Jan 8, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: it really works
    Cons: none

    Summary: Do you get a scratchy throat at night when you sleep? Do you wake up with a dry mouth, hardly able to swallow? If so, then maybe you should purchase a humidifier. I get those symptoms every winter. But this winter is much worse, probably ... read more

  • Holmes HM-2060W Cool Mist Humidifier

    Jan 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Automatic on and off; water saver
    Cons: Basin may spill when moved

    Summary: I bought this humidifier on recommendation of my sister, who had this stuff in her house and was so impressed by it. For the price alone, it is certainly ahead of its pack. I never expected to get this so cheap when in fact it's new, not a hand-me-down. ... read more

  • Save your sinuses

    Dec 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: moist heat is good heat, easy cleanup
    Cons: an even bigger water tank would be handy

    Summary: Although I actually have a 1.4 gallon HM5460, I have been very pleased with the quality of Holmes Warm Mist Humidifiers and purchased a second unit 2 days after the first for the remainder of the house. The adjustable humidity controller is ... read more

  • This Could Really Make You Feel Better

    Nov 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Humidity sensor, Automatic settings, Warm mist
    Cons: Must refill every 1.5 days

    Summary: Living in the northeast with hot air heat the humidity level in our home can easily fall below 25%. When that happens our house feels colder and within a few days we have sinus trouble and headaches. Dampen that dry air up to around 40 to 45% and you ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Fire Hazard; bad smell when the water boils and our city water is soft.

    Summary: This device is a fire hazard. The first day I used it I noticed a smell and it seemed to be the smell of boiling water. I would unplugged it every morning and ensured it always had water in it- it never ran dry. After a week of use, I moved it and ... read more

  • Very Disappointed Customer

    Dec 17, 2003 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: When it works properly, it makes some difference in the humidity in the room.
    Cons: Poor design, leaks water profusely, parts do not fit tightly, not worth the price.

    Summary: This unit leaks water profusely. Tank does not fit well onto base. A very poorly designed unit. I am leery about trying any more Holmes products after my experience with this ... read more

  • Using filtered water can make a difference

    Oct 11, 2003 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: moisturizes, disperses vapor well, reliable, effective.
    Cons: a bit difficult to clean after you've used water that caused deposits to stick.

    Summary: I have two Holmes humidifiers, both different models but similar in size and basic style. They've made a BIG difference in the moisture levels in the rooms they're in. This has greatly helped my skin and sinuses. I really like the way they disperse v ... read more
