The Miro CleanPot is an ultrasonic humidifier that's attractive enough to put on prominent display in your living room, like a decorative vase, but its main selling point is right in its name: It's clean. And the reason that it's clean is that, being tankless and filter free, you can take it apart and wash it in the sink with your dishes, though the manufacturer doesn't advise putting it in the dishwasher. Fortunately, it only has five pieces, so you can make it a regular part of your dish-washing routine to ensure that there isn't any bacteria floating around in the water vapor it produces.
In operation, the CleanPot looks like a magic lamp, the kind that a genie might come out of if you rubbed it, floating in a large bowl of water. Vapor rises out of the top in a plume of steam as the magic lamp uses ultrasound to vaporize the water from the bowl. If you have sinus problems or patchy skin from living in a dry climate, that plume will fill the air with moisture to vaporize your ills away. Honestly, this humidifier in a bowl is so cute you might want to get one even if your skin and sinuses are just fine. It would make a great conversation piece when visitors start to wonder what the heck it is.
If you want to modify the amount of vapor coming out of the unit, you'll need to buy an extra cost controller, which plugs into the side of the CleanPot and probably isn't washable. Otherwise, all you need to do to operate the CleanPot is to plug in the power adapter (also not washable) and keep the bowl filled with water. Should you want to use the CleanPot for aromatherapy or just to make your home smell better, you can put a few drops of essential oil in the bowl with the water. (A bottle of eucalyptus oil comes with it.)
To compare the CleanPot to a different brand of ultrasonic humidifier, take a look at the SpaRoom AromaMist. And if you'd prefer a nebulizing humidifier to an ultrasound device, check out the Smiley Daisy Gardenia. Neither of these units can be washed in the sink, though.
This humidifier is the best humidifier I have ever used.
Water ran out so quick and had to fill 5 times over a night.
