At what cost

For around 90 bucks, Elechomes UC5501 Ultrasonic humidifier is actually a very good price regardless of which colors you go for. A full-featured hybrid model that is perfect to keep skin moist and baby sleep calmly at night. That said, the filter cost is not the cheapest if you decided to change the filter and aroma pad monthly. Both are optional and you can save cost by changing it on an interval basis.
If you deciding to buy Elechomes UC5501 Ultrasonic humidifier, there are not many places to opt for. The first option is Amazon has it has the best price, free shipping, all color options, and 30 days return policy. Stock is plentiful with a good balance on both the black and white version. You can also check out other retailers including the big one like Walmart, Costco, or Best Buy. Last but not least, you can try Elechome's official site but the user experience is poor due to the slow loading time.
