At what cost

At around 40 after discount, Crane Drop is very affordable and practical even though it does not support essential oil. The small water tank is also a downer but this is what you get at this price range. One of Crane Drop Ultrasonic Cool Mist humidifier strong suit is the many color options. Out of the bunch, there is definitely a color option that will match your home decor. Do take note that not every color is market at the same price so check before making a purchase.
Last we checked, Crane Drop Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier EE-5301 comes with a massive 8 different color options. It is impossible to get every color option you need from retailers like Walmart, Home Depot. Your best bet is through Crane official website or Amazon. Both offer free shipping, 30 days return policy, and the complete color option. Amazon has a slight edge with seamless purchasing, a cheaper price (selected color option), and bundled deal. Regardless of which buying method you go with, the warranty period would come directly from the manufacturer.
