Product details

Please note that this product is sold and shipped by one of our trusted Marketplace Sellers. This product is not available in any of our physical stores.

The Drop 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. Increased moisture in the air can be used for dry coughs, colds, nose bleeds, itchy eyes, dry scratchy throats and congestion with newborn babies right through to toddlers and adults.

Coughs, dry tickly throats, congestion and colds can disrupt a baby's sleep. A whisper quiet, Crane Ultrasonic Humidifier can be used to increase air moisture for easier breathing and a good night's sleep. Because of this, many parents choose to include a Crane Humidifier as part of their winter wellness kit.

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.  

This is the original Crane model, originally designed for living areas. It has a small water indicator light that can't be turned off - so we recommend not chosing this model if you like a completely dark bedroom. Choose the 4 in 1 or Droplet model.

FAQ

How does the Drop differ from the Droplet?

The Drop is bigger and has a large tank capacity. The Drop capacity is 3.75L and the Droplet is 1.9L. The larger the tank, the longer your Humidifier will run for before needing to be filled. Both Drop and Droplet will run continuously through the night.

Does This Crane Humidifier Have a Light?

Yes it has 2 tiny lights showing whether there is water in the humidifier. The tiny green light glows if there is sufficient water and the tiny red light glows if the water tank is empty.  You can see the little lights above the dial. The indicator light stays on while unit is in use.

Why Should I Use a Humidifier? 
The real question is why shouldn't you? Humidifiers increase moisture in the air that can otherwise be removed by other external factors such as air conditioners and heaters. Having the right balance of moisture in the air can be used for coughs, dry tickly throats, congestion and colds.

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 Humidifer/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 Vaporiser?
No, as traditional essential oils will interfere with the operation of the ultrasonic membrane in your humidifier and cause the plastic to break down over time. A glass or ceramic diffuser is more suited for use with oils.

However it is primarily the cool mist produced by the Crane Humidifier that is designed to increase moisture in the air and can be used for dry coughs, colds, nose bleeds, itchy eyes, dry scratchy throats and congestion. The NZ Ministry of Health recommends using a humidifier to increase moisture in the air as a form of self-care when you have a cold.

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. A whisper quiet, Crane Humidifier increases moisture in the air for easier breathing.

What is the Best Way to Clean My Humidifier?
It's simple. Regular cleaning will keep your humidifier running smoother, for 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. In some cases, such as when using bore water, you could notice a fine white mineral dust collecting near your Adorable. If so you can switch to distilled water to lower the dust-building mineral content. Crane Demineralization Filters will remove these excess minerals, so your air (and your home) stays clean. 

I can see a slight 'mist leak' around the bottom of the water tank. Should I be worried?
No you should not be worried. It is normal that humidifiers may have mist leaking through the gap between the water tank and humidifier base when it is operated new or after stopping use for a long time. The leaking will stop when water condensation around the edge is formed and fills up the gap.
This slight mist leak does not cause any safety risk near the power cord, as the humidifier works at a low voltage supplied from the external power adapter.

Is too much humidity a thing?Yes. To reduce excessive humidity (especially in a smaller room) we always suggest to leave the door slightly ajar to increase air circulation in the room. You can also easily adjust the mist intensity to a lower output setting. If you see the mist going up and straight down, this is a key indicator that the mist setting is too high for the humidity level in the room.
