Sleek design, near-silent operation, and an output suitable for spaces up to 1,000 square feet? The Stadler Form William humidifier may be a newer model, but it has got a lot going for it. Design-savvy consumers will appreciate the clean lines. Those who are more interested in functionality will appreciate the excellent moisture output, easy-to-use display panel and integrated humidistat. Another bonus? The sleep mode, which dims the control panel and reduced noise, make this an ideal pick for light sleepers.
The extra features make it worth the hefty price tag. At more than $200, the Stadler Form William is a more expensive option than many comparable models. However, this humidifier features several interesting features that make it a top pick by many consumers. The machine features a chic digital control panel and an integrated humidistat. It also features a sleep mode, which dims the lighted controls, and three output levels.
Stellar room coverage makes this tabletop humidifier a top selection. While we found fewer reviews for this humidifier than most other models, those that we did find were very satisfied with the room coverage offered by the Stadler Form William. The 1.5-gallon tank emits either cool or warm mist and includes a feature for fine mist.
No complaints of noise levels: The near-silent noise output of the Stadler Form William humidifier is almost universally appreciated by consumers and expert reviewers. Plus, adjusting the variable output levels can help silence any perceived noise even further.
Smart features lead to positive reviews. The Stadler Form William humidifier incorporates the brand's patented Iconic Silver Cube, which helps inhibit bacterial and mold growth. The model also incorporates an anti-calcium cartridge to help reduce white dust, a common problem among humidifiers that can result when the minerals in water are released along with the mist from the humidifier. Both of these filters must be replaced fairly regularly and can add substantial added cost to an already pricey model.
1. Real Simple
Review Credibility: Very Good Popular women's magazine Real Simple recommends five humidifiers which they say are not only highly functional but sleeker than other models. They include models based on their design, ease of use and cleanliness. Unfortunately, descriptions of each model are relatively brief, and the editors do not outline how models were selected or what criteria was used for selection. The Stadler Form is selected thanks to its chic design.
