BONECO Warm or Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier U700

(formerly Air O Swiss Warm or Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier)

The Boneco Warm or Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier U700 is a smart and innovative humidifier with high output levels, advanced cleaning features and a modern, sleek design.

Being an ultrasonic humidifier, it creates high frequency vibrations that turn water molecules into a fine mist ready for dispersion.

One of the things we love about the Boneco Warm or Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier U700 is that it has the largest water tank and highest level of humidity output of any Boneco/ Air O Swiss humidifier.

The water tank holds 2.4 gallons (around 9 litres) of water and its output level is up to 4 gallons (around 15 litres) per 24 hours, and is suitable for use in rooms up to 1000 square feet in size.

You can choose whether the U700 releases a warm or cool mist, and the Auto Mode uses a programmable hygrostat so that the humidifier can adjust its output according to the humidity readings of the room. Some users of the U700 mentioned that the hygrostat is inaccurate. If an accurate humidity reading is important to you, then we recommend you look at purchasing a digital hygrometer such as the ones we reviewed in this post.

The water tank has handles and is easy to remove, which helps when refilling with water. When the tank is removed, the unit automatically shuts off.

There is also a fragrance container within the unit so that you can add your own favorite essential oils, turning the humidifier into an essential oil diffuser as well.

The digital display allows you to select an auto-dimming function, as well as displaying reminders for when to clean the unit and when to refill the water tank. There are 2 performance levels available, as well as a Sleep Mode which offers a whisper-quiet performance, making this a perfect humidifier for baby room use or for those who don’t like noise at night.

The U700 also has a timer function, a double jet nozzle for effective mist dispersion and a soothing LED light (with the option to switch it off). The digital display light cannot be switched off but can be dimmed.

The Boneco warm or cool mist ultrasonic humidifier has advanced cleaning features, making it a humidifier that has high cleanliness standards. During the Cleaning Mode, the U700 loosens built-up scale, making it easier to clean the unit.

It comes with essential accessories for cleaning and maintenance, including a hydro cell (to maintain freshness), a demineralization cartridge and EZCal to reduce lime scale and mineral residues. The demineralization cartridge helps prevent the release of minerals in the air, which is the cause of white dust in a room after using an ultrasonic humidifier. The hydro cell is essentially an activated carbon filter that works to keep the water filtered and fresh.

There is a 3-year limited warranty available.

Pros

Excellent for large rooms

Can use essential oils

Large capacity water tank

Cons

Ongoing maintenance costs

How to choose a Boneco: best ultrasonic humidifier

Budget

The difference in pricing is due to the features of the humidifier. Those with more features and those that are a larger size tend to be more expensive.

Water capacity

The water tank capacity differs from model to model. The amount that the water tank holds determines what room size the humidifier is suitable for.
