It's winter, so everyone's turning up the heater at night to keep from catching cold-itis (I'm a doctor). But that, in turn, gives everyone dry-ass throats, which then necessitates a humidifier. So why not use this humidifier?
The Stadler Form Fred looks simple, yet fancy, like many of the humidifiers I saw when I visited Japan recently. It's only about $US159 after being imported from Korea, so it's not absurdly priced like some of the ones I've seen. The only questions are whether it dispenses enough mist to properly moisturize the room, and if it has a big enough tank to last through the whole night, and if it's quiet enough to not wake you up every few hours.
