Title: no one wants dank noodles, perfect size and performance for humid pantry room
Content: Not a whole more to say beyond what the product page says. Kudos to them for including so much info; it is part of the reason why I chose it. I will describe what I am using it for and maybe that will help you make a decision. Try this if you have a small space you want to reduce humidity in. Very easy operation. Small dehumidifier that slowly pulls water from air and drops into container. Sometimes it is filling up quicker than other times. Depends on humidity. I bought this primarily for use in a small room that I keep my extended pantry. It doesnt get a lot of air flow, and it always feels a tad dank. I worry about humidity affecting noodles, pasta, rice, etc. I do not want danky noodles, so I have been purchasing those knock off damp rid containers. They work, they are only good for one time use. Even grabbing them at $ store has been adding up. I'm all like, I wish I could just have a tiny dehumidifier in this room. We have a huge one for the basement, but that would be overkill for the space I want this in. Then I took to searching on Amazon, and saw that there are indeed mini dehumidfiers on the martket. Who knew?! I chose this, took a chance. It works, yay! It's neat, and it works. Small, quiet, and it is fun to see the water droplets forming. Again, sometimes it appears to barely pull anything, other times it is building up. Definitely depends on the humidity level. quiet enough to have sitting next to me on side table and it does not make any distracting sound. So low that I only notice it when I actually turn it off. Very very quiet. Before I used it in the small room I bought it for, I tried it in my large living room next to me on the couch. It is definitely quiet. And although the room is huge (400 sq with a couple of doorways leading to hallways), I could see the drip drip drip of water collection. I wouldnt say that I felt any different. Didnt expect to. BUT, and this may be my imagination.. but when I turned it off, a few minutes later I noticed how extra hot the room felt. I wasnt looking for a difference. I was just done with having it "on" as I planned to bring it to the intended room shortly. SO yeh, it made a little difference on a hot humid day just by having it on next to me. It feels like it gets a little warm to the touch after awhile. I will continue to monitor that. I am hoping I can use this for several hours a day when needed. Has built in option for various light colors. Weird, but ok. I guess if I want to sit in my pantry room and.. stare at it, cool. lol. Anyway, it wasnt a deciding factor for me, but I like it. I guess if I had this in a room I hand out in, it could be a fun feature. I consider it a bonus feature. Can also have lights off. Easy to use direct from box. Just plug in, and press power button. So easy. 5 stars- I dont rate on price, but I thought it was a good price to see if it worked for my needs. It does, so I am all around happy at this time. Been using it about a week. So far so good. Will update if need be.
