It is simple and obvious how to operate the device. Detach the the body of the unit from the base, fill the unit with water to the indicated mark on the tank, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil, replace the top, plug in and switch on. There are just two buttons only. The right hand button controls the misting period and there are four modes of use: continuous misting, six hours of misting, three hours on, one hour on. Press and hold button to control the misting level – one beep for High and two for Low. The left hand button controls the light, one press turns it on and begins a 15 second cycles through the seven colours, press again to dim the light off, a third press will switch the light off. It can be used with the light or diffuser running alone. The spout can be rotated to determine the direction of the misting jet. In normal use the device will run for about six hours of misting before turning itself off. Should it run dry before then the misting process will automatically switch off to prevent over heating.
The diffuser is attractive and unobtrusive in appearance and should sit well in a home, office or clinical environment, the lighting is subtle and the misting process is pleasant and can lift or give atmosphere to the room. With a 300ml tank capacity it is about mid way in size and operating time compared to other units I have tried. Be aware that due to the nature of the misting process some water may be precipitated around the device so do not locate it close to sensitive objects. This diffuser emits a large amount of mist, more so than most of the others I have tried, which is a good or bad thing according to your outlook.
Of the several diffusers I have experimented with this is one of the best as it simple to use, looks good and works well. It is a little less expensive than some which can only be for the good. The device is well made and seems robust and durable. It has a good running time between refills and produces plenty of mist.. The price is good and it has attractive and understated good looks. For the current price of £29.99 it is a very worthwhile buy.
