Easy-To-Care Cool Moisture Humidifier
Product Reviews Add your own review
I've had the HCM-710 for four months and it works very well to humidify a medium size bedroom (approx. 12x15 ft). I love how easy it is to fill with water! The HCM-710 "Top-Fill" design is so much easier and convenient to fill than the "removable-tank style" designs that nearly every other humidifier manufacturer pushes to market.
In addition, the "removable tank" styles of other humidifiers will often produce a loud gurgle every so often as the water is consumed, and this disturbs light sleepers like myself (think of how an office water-cooler gurgles when you fill your cup). The HCM-710 sounds like a fan, a constant white noise, and the open tank design will never produce a gurgle.
The HCM-710 makes no white dust, since it is an evaporative style humidifier. Ultrasonic style humidifiers create white dust when using tap-water - even if the product info says they do not. Unless one uses distilled water, dust will be generated because there's no easy way to remove the minerals without proper filtration. The white dust gets all over everthing, especially TV screens, and is hard to remove - not to mention probably bad for some allergy sufferers.
Mild Complaint: The HCM-710 has a BRIGHT Blue LED, which helps indicate the water level, but is intrusive to sleeping - a few layers of black electrical tape over the LED dimmed it down to tolerable levels - but now one cannot easily see the water level. I wish the LED would automatically turn off after running for a few minutes - one could see the water level, read a few pages of a book by the LED light ;), and then go to sleep once the LED shuts off.
Overall: I love the HCM-710 and would buy it again. It costs less than most other products. It's easy to use and fill. It doesn't make dust. It doesn't gurgle. I wish the LED turned off, but some people may like it as a night-light. There are no fancy controls and I like this - add water, turn it on, and let it work. Thanks for a great product!
We bought a new humidifier after our cats tipped over the last humidifier for the 10,000th time and broke it for good. We were looking for an un-tippable humidifier and found the HCM-710 model at Target. So far, so good! We are pleased the humidifier's function, if the slight film of water on the windows is any indication of it at work.
this is a great product because it is easy to fill. with my age it is hard to life heavythings. many other products you have to fill it up and then flip the container over for it to work. this is great, it also gives me a good idea when i need to fill it back up. overalll this is a great product.
I love the ease in which this unit can be cleaned. Also the disposable filter is a great idea for health reasons.
So far this is the second unit I've purchased and I really like the ease in cleaning it and the disposable filter for health reasons.
We have the cool mist humidifier and it works great in the bedroom. We were waking up with dry noses and now wake up feeling great.
I have brought it today and I have feel its nice nice I will provide the detail comments after some days...!

This small humidifier is perfect for the bedroom and required no assembly. I love how easy it is to refill.
I like that you ccan see the water level really good and that it has a quite mode. Plus it is easy to fill and works great.
Just bought it today....It has a compact size and looks good, need a little time to try out before any review.
This is first time I have used a cool mist humidifier. I find it preferrable to all previous humidifiers because it is easier to fill and I find the cool mist creates better air quality than the warm mist.
Very easy to follow set up instructions. Unit has been running for about 3 hours and I can feel a difference already.
The first thing that drew me to purchase this humidifier was the fact that the tank is intergrated and you can just pour water into the unit instead of lifting off the tank. I also like the water level indicator, which is easy to see. The unit is pretty queit, even on high setting. I am very satisfied with this purchase!!
Thank you for this wonderful little humidifier. It will suit my purposes quite well. I've had larger and bulkier items, but found them to be just that. My space for the humidifier is a little limited since I live in a condo and I want to be able to use it in the living areas of my family room. I'm hoping to get the results that I'm looking for in this model, as I've done a lot of researching and shopping.
Again, thank you and if I have any concerns or needs, I'll be sure to contact the customer service department.

I love the way to fill this humidifier, it is so easy and the price was so right. I would gladly purchase another one when needed. Thank you. Jackie Greening
I am totally delighted with my new KAZ humidifier. The quality is superb, the design is unique, and, it is the quietest humidifier hav ever owned.
We use it in the bedroom for sleeping at night, because we would always wake up so dry in the morning. The end result, we don't wakr up with dry mouth syndrome now.
Thanks KAZ for a great product.
From a truly exstatic customer.
i am very pleased with this product... it operates as it should and is efficently humidifying the one large room that it says that it will do... dishwasher maintainence is a big plus...
We really like using this product, and the price we paid for it was outstanding. We will definitely be buying more for all the bedrooms in our house!
I love it! It is so easy to fill and keep going. It puts just the right amount of moisture in the air for the small area it bought it for.
Love the ease of filling, runs quietly and handles the size of my room great!! Good value
We love that this is a basic, easy to use humidifier. And it should be easy to clean. We have only had it for 1 day but so far it has met our expectations! And with the name Honeywell we expect it will work for a long time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I live in Mo and in the winter the air is very, very dry which causing a lot of problems at night while sleeping. I purchased this product to use in the bedroom for that purpose. It makes such a difference! I specifically wanted a unit that was easy to care for, easy to clean and quiet...this fits the bill! The top fill is also a great plus, no longer hauling around halfd the uint to fill it up. I am very happy with this purchase and it's performance.
This is the first humidifier that I have found that I am really happy with - It is easy to use and easy to keep clean!
Have had neck surgery and needed easy to fill humidifier that I did not have to carry to sink to fill. This unit is perfect....easy to clean, easy to fill, and perfect for someone with a disability. High setting emits "white noise," but I don't mind it. Love the humidifier!!!!
Bought this for my mother who is 90+ years old and lives in a retirement center and needs more humidity in her apartment during the winter months. I like the feature that the unit can be refilled without taking anything apart and the fact that it will drain off any excess in case of overfilling, which makes it safe for Mom to use by herself (hopefully).
This was a great purchase for my Mom-in-law. It was just the ticket to give her the needed moisture in her home. She is very pleased with it. Daughter-in-law done good!!!
This unit replaces a Vicks product that was noisy, hard to fill and humidified only is you dampened the filter daily. The Honeywell is much quieter, a snap to replenish with water and works everytime without coaxing. Shipping from KAZ was amazingly quick!
Great item! Easy fill and great cool moisture with two settings. I am impressed with the ease of use - no spillage and view for filling without having to move or remove anything! Best ever.
I had neck surgery and cannot lift much, so needed humidifier with top fill that I did not have to carry to sink every night. I loved this one so much that I have ordered subsequent ones for my grandkids. Really nice to have this option. The unit is easy to clean as well. I love it!!!!
The humidifier works great and is easy to use and maintain. I would definitely recommend it anyone.
This humidifer is very quiet on the low setting. The low setting is perfect for our medium size bedroom. It certainly is lightweight compared to past humidifiers we had.
Hello just received this unit works very well and is easy to set up very satisfied ralph cox
The machine is quiet and effective. I only wish I had been aware when purchasing it that it has no automatic shut-off.
Ordered it since we installed a wood burning stove and it s so dry in the house. Works well, will be ordering another one
Just purchased this product today. I like the look of it and look forward to using and testing out the product. Will post an updated review after some usage.
We bought this humidifier for my daughter when she caught her first cold and love the design that makes it easy to fill and to clean! When filled, it's long lasting and the vapor is super fine. We use it on the lowest setting because of the size of her nursery and it works perfect. We also love the white noise sound it makes which helps muffle outside sounds.
We only used this one night so far in my daughter's bedroom. She has a cold with chest congestion and said she slept well for the first time in ages and woke up feeling refreshed. We live in North Western Ontario so the furnace has kicked on and the air is very dry. This unit is easy to set up and fill and looks very easy to clean. I had it on Low all night and it's very quiet. High produces a somewhat loud white noise which would bother me if it was by my bedside. Out in the room, not too bad. I hope it continues to work well.
So far it is working great. Only downside is that you have to use a pitcher to fill it instead of bringing a tank to a water source.
Although we have not had it long enough to feel the full effects of it, what I do like so far is that it is user friendly. Not complicated. It seems to be just the right size for our small apartment and with winter coming on we will make good use of it. I like the looks of it and I am confident it will live up to our expectations. Thank you
I'm surprised more consumers didn't comment on the brightness of the light. It lights up the entire room - makes it very difficult to sleep. I'm trying to find out how to disconnect the light or dim it some how because it seems to be a very good humidifier - not too noisey.
This humidifier was purchased for our basement, as when the fireplace is on, the air is very very dry. After being on for only a very short time, we can already feel a difference in the air. I am happy with this purchase so far... it is very easy to set up. My only wish is that the filter were washable, and not a replacement style.
This does a good job, but has one thing against bedroom use, the high speed is quite noisy.
The build of the unit is excellent, and it is easy to fill and use.
I like the size and quitness of my new HCM-710 humidifier. It was so easy to set up and fill with water and in just a few hours a difference was noticed with the humidity in my bedroom on the humidifer gauge on my dresser. The only thing I would recommend would be an automatic shut off when the water is low or depleted, this would be convienient for when I would be gone a day or so.
Great product. Very quiet and easy to fill....no heavy container to carry and reattach to machine. Easy to see the water level but I think the machine should have an automatic shut-off in case it runs out of water.
It is easy to use and works as I expected. I had previously bought another brand and had to return it as it didn't perform as expected
I have been using this humidifer for almost a week and have noticed an improvement in
my sleeping as well as my dry skin. Good investment.
Received Humidifier in July and now have someone to set up. I haven't tried the unit yet, but will be in a couple of days.
I really like the design of the fill feature and the water level indicator. Much easier than pulling a tank off and filling it in a sink. Would be nice to have a "medium" speed, the low setting isn't enough for a small room.
Just purchased it today and so far love it. It was easy to get started...Be sure to read all the instructions first...It's appearance is nice. I love the fact that it last up to 36 hours before having to refill. I was a little diappointed to learn that I have to replace the filter every 2 months durint the season you use it. It makes a very soft and relaxing sound.
So far the unit seems to be working very well. Of special value to the owner, an 87 year old lady, is the top-fill feature.
Set this unit up today and found it is quite noisey. The fan has a "click" like it is hitting the housing! It will be in a bedroom, and on high, I don't think you could sleep! On low it is more livable. I'll try it for a few nights, and may be getting back to someone about warranty.
Works nearly as advertised. East to fill, clean, use. Too noisy when on "high" output mode. Humidifies when operating on "high", but medium room humidity drops when on the quieter "low" operating mode.
It says it is supposed to be quiet but if you turn up the moisture setting for a larger room it tends to be loud. I like it queit when I sleep so it does not run all night so I am not feeling the full benefits of the moisture that I have gotten from other humidifiers.
I read the many reviews on this product and it seemed just the humidifier for me, but when I received it noted that that fan was one that is hard if not impossible to clean. Come now - instructions say to clean with a cotton swab or pipe cleaner. How about including the type of cleaner for this hard to get to fan. I also noticed the water level window is not easy to see the actual level of water. So I am disappointed !
