    Rated 3.8 out of 5★áby 249reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5★áby Great for the price Noticed there aren't alot of people that are giving this positive reviews. We happen to think this vaporizer *it is not a humidifier* works awesome for it's cost. For less then $20 bucks, it's extremely simple to operate. Put water into tank up to the fill mark *make sure not to overfill, it "spits" water* and plug into the wall. If you look closely at the steam guard, you can see the steam this unit is making. After a few hours, glance again and the water level is dropping. If there isn't enough steam for your liking, add a pinch or two of salt. This will make the water hotter, therefor creating more steam.Only problem I've found, is if you put in too much salt, the unit tends to die quickly. We learned this the hard way, first unit lasted 6 months, but the replacement we purchased is working awesome *bought the same unit again, just using less salt* Very easy to clean as well, once every few weeks let it soak in pure vinegar for 20 minutes, rinse throughly, and continue with your regular use.Maybe you can purchase other vaporizers / humidifiers for $100, but compare prices, for $20, you can't go wrong!! 12/16/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Mine works great I was hesitant to buy this product because of all the negative reviews. When I went to my local Walmart, it was on special for $10 so I figured I couldn't go wrong for that price. I've had it for almost a year and it's been fantastic. I use it when the sparks start flying in the house or during a sinus episode so the unit gets used regularly in the winter. I've never had to use salt to get more steam and clean up is very easy. The grey scaling effect is kind of gross in the tank but a little soak with vinegar takes care of everything about once every 2 weeks. A full tank goes 16-18 hours before needing a refill. Easy to use, easy to clean and a great price. What's not to like? 02/06/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Works if you add salt! We've tried cool mist humidifiers but they were impossible to keep clean inside, and ended up with mold/mildew (gross!).We bought two of these, several years ago (needed one in each bedroom). No, they don't work well, unless you add salt to the water in the tank. Then they work great!At least they have for us. If yours has stopped working or doesn't seem to work great, try adding a little salt to the tank. Hopefully that will help. 12/18/2010
    Rated 4 out of 5★áby Great value This unit works great, releasing steam all through the night, helping to soothe my irritated throat and sinuses. I use filtered water + 4 pinches of salt. So far I have used it 4 nights without having to add any more water. I suppost the night light is great for children who need a light, but it is very bright; I'd rather have one w/out it. Unit is fairly quiet; makes light noise similar to outside rain. 01/17/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★áby Not Bad In my opinion, this vaporizer is under-rated. It's basically a cheap, no-frills humidifier. This unit is a big plastic pot that heats water and produces mist. It also has a medicine cup area where you can add a Vicks inhaler, or slots where you can add Vicks inhaler pads. This vaporizer is bigger than I expected, so make sure you have some table-top space reserved for it. The instruction booklet advises to add a few pinches of salt if your water doesn't have enough minerals in it, as salt will help to heat the water faster and make it hotter to produce more steam. I have hard water, but still found that I had to add about 5 pinches of salt to get the steam going. This method worked out fine. Once you plug the unit in, it takes about 10 minutes for it to heat up and emit steam. I haven't cleaned it yet, but it appears easy to clean. Once you pull the top off, it's a big plastic receptacle with a large can easily clean the interior of it, or soak it with vinegar when necessary. One thing to note is that the water level goes down more quickly than expected; it doesn't run on one pot of water as long as the manufacturer indicates. Basically, you need to monitor the water levels and add more water when necessary. Needless to say, if you add a lot of salt, the water will boil out more quickly. I think this vaporizer is good to have on hand for cold and flu season, and also good for childrens' rooms. No humidifier lasts forever, so this is a reasonably-priced stop gap for those who don't want to spend a lot, but still have the benefit of a warm mist. If you are on a budget, I would suggest trying this one first to see if it meets your needs. It might be cheap, but it does what it's supposed to do. 01/06/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Faithful I own four of these trusty dusty little things. I know the packaging reads vapoizer, but it works as a humidifier all the same. I break these out every winter for mine and my children's bedrooms. This product has soothed my children's congestion and coughs during the grueling winter months. Since we have hard water, I have to add salt to get the steam going. The directions for use clearly indicate this may be the case in areas of hard water. I love these humidifiers and could not be happier. I am glad I didn't shell out loads of money for a "nicer looking" product; these get the job done. 07/17/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5 Works SO well! I love it! I have had my Vicks Warm Steam Vaporizer for 3 years now (same unit) and have NEVER had any issues, it still works like new. I have never added salt (I actually didn't know you could do that until I read some reviews below) and never used the spot for the vapor rub, I just use it to add moisture to my room when I sleep. It is so simple to use. I used to have a humidifier that cost me $100 and it worked horrible and leaked water when trying to get it going compared to this unit.*P.S. there will be some black floaties at the bottom of the machine when you go to refill the water. It is normal and is part of the filtering. If you read the manual it explains it well. 11/18/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby The Vicks Steam Vaporizer Still Works Great! Just wanted to post an update to my review from last October 2012 - when we were on our 2nd winter with the same vaporizer. Guess what, we pulled out the trusty Vicks Steam Vaporizer again for our 3rd year in a row - and it fired right up. This will be our 3rd winter with the same one. In addition, we are going to buy another one this year just for our bedroom. The current one is for the main floor. I highly recommend this product especially if you have a cold (get the pads too: they work!) Thanks Vicks. *Suggestion: Every time we run our Vicks Vaporizer right out of storage we place a few good shakes of salt into the tub - to jump start it. If any of you have trouble getting steam right away - try a few good shakes of salt and it should start right up for you. 12/06/2013
