Honeywell Gallon Cool Moisture Humidifier Product Reviews
Model Number: HCM-890
Room Size: Small to Medium
Warranty: 5 Year Limited
only had it for a week so far, but works good it is a little noisy at night if trying to sleep. I do use distilled water, even though in the manual it said you do not have to.
I am truely unhappy with this product the filter constantly just dries out and stops working. And of course the store i purchased it from will not take it back nor exchange it for another one, SO i piad $19.44 for a product i just now have sititng in my room not doing anything!
Easy to operate and clean. Wish the filters were sold in the retail store rathr than having to order them online from Home Depot.
just the right size for me
I NEEDED A HUMIDIFIER FOR MY BEDROOM DUE TO A MEDICAL CONDITION.I LOOKED AT MANY DIFFERERNT SIZES AND TYPES ON LINE,BUT THE HONEYWELL HCM-890 HAD GOOD REVIEWS. FOR THAT REASON,THE SIZE AND EASE OF OPERATION MADE ME ORDER THE UNIT.I ALSO BOUGHT A HYGROMETER TO MONITOR THE ROOM'S HUMIDITY WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT.PUTTING THE UNIT ON HIGH FAN DOES MAKE MORE NOISE THAN ON LOW FAN.
I just got a second humidifier of the same model to use in the living room. It's effective and fairly quiet.
We if avaliable purchase Honeywell products for the quality we received in the past
Does a good job getting moisture in the air, louder than I would like though. Pretty noisey even on the low setting. It was a good price, guess I could have paid more for something a little quieter.
Our usual humidifier stopped working and I needed to replace it and quick. This one was reasonably priced and works well, so I guess it will do.
2.0 Gallon Honeywell
Its the perfect size for filling and using in our bedroom. It is very quiet and adds just the right mist into our room. Great product and reasonably priced.
Does a fine job in getting moisture in the air of our bedroom, but the noise level is a little loud.
I had one of these humidifiers before. Lasted 5 years, I guess I was expecting more... It worked well during that time, and I ran it pretty close to non stop Dec-Mar.
I find the filters a little pricey and had to go on order on line to get them. I wish the store I purchased this product from would carry the filters.
Just wanted to let you know that we bought another unit as we were so pleased with the first one.
One for upstairs and one for our family room in the basement.
Easy to clean and fill. Easy to move from room to room.
Easy to operae and easy to carry for seniors.
Loud, difficult and fell apart
This unit is very noisy–even at the low setting. I couldn't sleep with it on which is exactly when I needed it. It requires weekly cleaning and a new filter everytime you stop using it for more than a week. Mine also fell apart within the first 24 hours of use. I cleaned it and tried to use it while sleeping but it was too loud and I had to turn it off. You must take it apart, empty and re-fill it when you move it. I tried doing that the next morning and a gasket fell off the water tank cap. According to Kaz, the manufacturer, it would require a new cap. Kaz asks that you return the unit to them according to the literature they supply in the box with the unit. I called Kaz for some help and they suggested returning it to the store. Kaz would not pay for return shipping of their broken unit.
"Sleep Mode" is misleading. Great price but too loud to sleep with while it's on.
Poor product and service
I purchased a honeywell humidifier which broke after 3 days due to a design flaw in the water tank. I contacted honeywell customer service several times and got no response. Would not recommend buying honeywell.
First experience with Honeywe; agree it is rather loud but that doesn't really bother me that much. Only use it at night so not a problem filling it once a day--would be a nuisance if I had to rely on it all day. Only problem I found was that after using it for about 2 weeks, the reservoir slipped out of my wet hands into the sink and cracked, rendering it useless. I don't imagine it will be cost effective to replaced the reservoir, so probably will look for brand that's easier to handle.
Design Change Inferior.
The noise factor is significant. In fact, husband won't allow this unit to run at night. (for me it's an acceptable 'white noise' that actually enhances sleep).
Twice in 24 hours this small 2 gallon unit must be taken to the sink to be filled; and this even though I have two units on the floor where I use it. With a third once a day humidifyer on the lower floor, I have finally added enough humidity to this dry Colorado home. There was a time when Honeywell made a unit that one could fill once a day at the tank itself and the fan was relatively quiet. There was nothing wrong with the former design; so why was that product discontinued?
My former humidifyers for which -after nearly a decade of use- the motors quit turning the fan, had another positive characteristic: the large fan fitted on the top drew in lint dust from the air and trapped it in the water. So, the unit was also an air cleaner.
But no more added benefits and inexpensive filters. I am living with this humidifyer even though the design is inferior to the former Honeywell units and is a great deal more trouble.
I bought this unit for my office at work and I love it. Its just perfect for the size and room I needed to help with my dry office. Love this product would recommend to anyone.
Wonderful small humidifier that releases invisible moisture!
owned one of these units before and was extremely pleased with it
Godd at job but
I love the ease with which the unit sets up and how long it will work on one tank. But our first unit malfunctioned and the water wouldn't stay in the tank. Kaz was great and replaced it quickly for us because we had only purchased it a few months before. The replacement unit must have been not been quality checked well because it leaks at the seal. That said, I'd even purchase a new tank but didn't see that option.
I have suffered with the low humidity since we- re located to Utah. 5 minutes after we turned the humidor on I was breathing better. Thankyou.
Cool Moisture Humidifier HCM-890 Series
Opened the box immediately, followed set-up instructions, turned it on and it worked like a charm so far!!!!! Yeah!!!!
This is our second one.
IM LEAVING IN FLORIDA AND THIS FILTER GET TO MUCH FUNGUS INSIDE I ALWAYS CLEAN THE PRODUCT WITH WHITE VINEGAR BUT IT STILL GROWING COULD HELP WITH THIS PROBLEM ,PLEASE, MARIA E
Everything arrived in A1 condition. The unit was easy to prep and assemble and created a superb sleeping environment without alot of noise! A great value for the money!!
Really Made a difference
With the dry air where we live, this humidifier made a big differrence when we sleep.
Humidifier - Shut Off?
I have only used the Humidifier for a couple of days but so far, so good. One question: I plan to run it at night but find no information on any kind of automatic shut off. I'd appreciate knowing if there would be any problem with filling it and letting it run for eight or nine hours. If it should run out of water and the filter dry will it shut down? I purchased the item at Paul's ACE Hardware in Fountain Hills, AZ which I do not see on your above list.
I was delighted when I saw this is a Kaz appliance as I used to use your vaporizers for my children years ago.
Last night was my first night in using the Honeywell 2.0 Gallon Cool Moisture Humidifier.
It appears that it might just do the job to get rid of my cough and congestion that I have had for about two weeks. I could actually breathe a little better last night and hope that with each passing night I'll get better and better.
It's small enough to fit where I want it fit and I only hope that I can maintain it properly to get the most "mileage" out of this product.
Thank you very much for giving me this oppotunity to share my thought.
Excellent product..works very well.
firstname.lastname@example.orgSeems helpful. Quite noisy.
HumidifierPerfect in quietness and moisture for single room use.
Great little Humidifier!We have a one bedroom condo and my wife has asthma. This little marvel helps both of us to gain moisture and a healthy air in our condo. We thank Honeywell for producing this JUST FOR US! We have a condo that is totally electric and this was the only solution for our dry air.
RockwoodGood looking machine. I like the large capacity. Quite the contrast to the ones I used about 50 yrs ago!from Rockwood
honeywell humidifierso far I am happy with this humidifier, my eyes are no longer dries out and I sleep better cause the room is cool and moist.
Nice size, but noisy
This humidifer is the perfect size for an average bedroom or room. The smaller 2 gallon tank is perfect becasue the water does not sit for days on end, eliminating the worry of germs and bacterial growth.
However, this humidifer is noisy even when the fan is set on low. Takes some getting used to the white noise.
humidifierworks great. can really tell the differience in comfort. no more dry nose. thanks
HumidifierSatisfied with the product; works efficiently.
consumerdesigned for easy filling-low noise-cool mist is the best.
A-Ok So FarAll's well so far although I have only been using the product for 2 weeks. I like the "Cool Moisture" feature, which is primarily why I bought it.
Model HCM-890 HumidifierI am very pleased with my new humidifier. It is replacing a similar one that no longer works. I purchased this at Arrow Ace Hardware in Rochester.
I found this humidifier very good for 12 hours of humid air in my bedroom and bought one for a friend. Mine is two years old and just great.
The unit is much more noisy than expected. Also, the ad indicate a two gallon unit. I assumed the reservoir was 2 gallon, but it is much smaller which requires very frequent filling.
humidifier model 890i just purchased the humidifier and find it easy to operate, easy to fill the only draw back is the noise the moter makes thank you i purchased the machine at canadian tire but was unable to finish the registration because it isnt listed so i put wall mart
Very pleased. I have one in the sunroom with my plants and it is doing a fine job keeping moisture in the air. I use the second one in the bedroom and have noticed we are not nearly as clogged in the mornings. I would definitely buy another.
Honeywell Coolmist HumidifierI am very pleased so far w. my purchase.
Tom GabWe have 2 Pellet Stoves in our House. I Dryed the House out and I could not Sleep. I got about 3 hours of sleep. The First nite I used the HCM-890 Humidificateur I got 6 Hours Sleep.
Willibvery compact an stylish quiet requires water every 12 hours good price
Great productlove this product - have had one for twelve years, and have decided to get a second one as back up - it was on sale :)
Very GoodThis is a very good humidifer. I would recommend this product for anyone who is in need of one.
Plastic on upper edge of base where motor seats broken off in several inch
region. A large 1.5 inch crack inside the plastic of the tank. Obviously not
good quality. I won''t take the chance again.
good productionthe function is good but there is a little noise.
This humidifier is terrible. Loud and does not produce humidity. Would really like my money back.
SatisfactoryEffective but noisy
Inexpensive, Compact, Clean
This machine works. It's simple, easy to clean, and works well in the 140 sq ft space I live in. The filter lasts for a solid two months with daily use and occasional soaking in water. Because of its small size, it's only able to maintain the humidity at 30-35%, sometimes higher depending on the weather. The tank has to be refilled often, but i prefer doing regular changes of water anyways just to keep the machine clean.
I had the humidifier and the water tank broke. I saw no way of ordering only a new tank. So bought the the whole unit. I could have done with the new tank only. I am happy with the humidifiers performance, but somewhat perturbed that i had to waste a perfectly good motor, fan anf stand to replace a cracked, leaking tank.
Brother William Winter
I've purchased 3 humidifiers from Kaz. I love how easy it is to find what you need. This is the 2nd Honeywell that I have ordered. I love the fine mist that it creates and the filters are very reasonalby priced. It really helps my daughter with allergies.
Kaz always ships within a week and I've never had a problem with any order.

Honeywell Gallon Cool Moisture Humidifier
The bottom was chipped at places around the top. The number to call did not work for shortage or damage products. Had to call the ordering line and the person there help me greatly.
LoudThe fan on it, even on low is a bit loud
HCM-890Just got it going and can tell a difference already!
HCM-890fan is too noisy even under light mode
cool air humidifierworks great, noisy but get used to it
Good HumidifierMuch better than my last one. Don't need to heat the water and the sound is not too much. Good product!
Product seems to working good. There was not a registration card in the box the humidifier came in.
Do not like having to go to Facebook to sign for up for a chance to win you Comfort Package. When you live in a rural community you do not generally have a quick internet system.
have not had time to use product yet just warrantying it
Honeywell Cool Moisture Humidifier
Our Holistic Physician recommended a humidifier for allergy and sinus problems. In only one night we have seen excellent results, The only downside is that the humidifier is a bit noisy.
Great but Noisy
I love everything about this little humidifier except it is EXTREMELY NOISY!!! That is the only reason I'm not giving it a 5 rating.
It is small, well-made, study, lightweight and easy to clean.
I got it for my bedroom, but it makes so much noise - even on low - that I can't sleep.
It goes to the thrift store next week, with a note that it is highly recommended for someone with hearing problems.
If they could solve the noise problem, I'd buy three.
SO FAR SO GOOD. EASY TO FILL. NOT TOO NOISY.
