Slant Fin Humidifier

Slant Fin humidifierSlant Fin humidifiers have been sold to Kaz, which makes humidifiers under various brands, including Honeywell, Vicks and Enviracaire. However, some Slant Fin humidifiers remain on the market, under various names, along with accessories such as Slant Fin humidifier filters.

One product is the Enviracaire EWM-211D Slant Fin Humidifier (picture). Here is a product description:

* Dual germicidal process kills up to 99.99% of mold, bacteria, and spores

* Digital controls for humidity level accuracy, Adjustable humidity control so you dictate humidity level

* Runs up to 24 hours per filling, Automatic shut-off when unit is empty

* Optional mineral absorption pads for decreased mineral buildup and reduced maintenance

* Medicine cup allows for addition of respiratory medications

This model was named best warm-mist humidifier by Good Housekeeping magazine, following a test of 21 humidifiers.

At Amazon.com it has attracted one customer review. Here is an excerpt:

I bought this after our old school Vicks humidifier started spurting out water instead of steam. I really didn't want to spend this much money on a humidifier, but I didn't want to keep replacing them either.

I did a fair amount of research on this one and I received it last week. So far, it's much easier to fill than the Vicks. I can put it in the tub and it's full in no time. I love the carrying handle too! It is fairly quiet, as compared to the old Vicks humidifier and on the low setting you can barely hear it. However, there is a loud glug glug glug as the water enters the steam chamber. My son hasn't been woken by it so I guess it's not that big of an issue. The output is good, and so far, I've been able to run this nightly on Low, 70% for three to four nights without a refill.

After a full week of nightly use, the heating element was 2/3 covered with scale, even with using the mineral absorption pads. The pad wasn't hard and inflexible so I can continue to use it. But I decided to clean it anyway. Filling it with vinegar and using an old toothbrush cleaned the scale off within a few minutes. I guess we have fairly hard water here in Georgia.

Another Slant Fin humidifier is the KMS Slant–Fin Germ–Free GF–240 Humidifier, which has three Amazon.com customer reviews. The headlines on these reviews show that opinions are divided:
