Our Verdict

The Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic humidifier offers above average but not high-end humidifying power at a fairly average price. That makes it a reasonable choice if the room you plan on humidifying is slightly above average size. However, it is somewhat difficult to clean, so you'll have to factor that into your decision-making. The Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic has overall average performance at an overall average price, so there may be better models out there if you're looking for high-end performance or outstanding value.

Our Analysis and Test Results

The Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic offers decent all-around performance at a reasonable price, but it is somewhat difficult to clean. If you don't mind cleaning, it may be a good option. If you're already dreading the weekly cleaning required by a humidifier, this isn't the model for you. Not a standout in any one of our tests, but not a poor performer either, the Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic ended up towards the middle of our humidifier scoreboard.

Humidifying Performance


The Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic earned an above-average score in our humidifying performance testing. It took 40 minutes for this machine to get our 150 square foot testing room up to 45% humidity, and at the 3-hour mark it maxed out at 63.5%. This put it right between some of our top overall award-winners in terms of performance. If you've already tried a small humidifier and found it doesn't have enough power to get your room to the desired humidity, then this may be a decent choice. However, there are other models that are more powerful and actually less expensive than the Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic.

Ease of Cleaning


The Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic wasn't our favorite model to clean. Its water tank opening is 2.75 inches in diameter, allowing for smaller hands to get in for scrubbing, but those with larger hands will have some difficulty. The machine itself has lots of grooves where mold could hide and take hold, and that requires some diligent scrubbing to keep clean. The instruction manual also doesn't give any guidance for doing any sort of anti-mold soak. At the end of the day, it took us about 20 minutes of scrubbing and rinsing to feel that the Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic was adequately clean.

User Friendliness


We felt the Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic was about average when it came to user-friendliness. Our biggest complaint was the water tank. The 2.75-inch opening was large enough to prevent spills, but the lack of any sort of handle makes it awkward to hold the tank while it's being filled. Its controls are super simple, with just a single dial that adjusts the mist level, and a single button that turns the LED night light on and off. This machine lacks any advanced features like an off timer or humidistat. That means you have to remember to turn the unit off when you leave for work. This is one of the few humidifiers we've come across that does have an essential oil slot, so it can double as a diffuser.

Operating Cost


The Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic is relatively inexpensive to own and operate. Our calculations indicated an estimated lifetime cost for this unit of $98. This is very low, but not quite as low as other top contenders. The Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic has a reasonable list price uses 0.015 kWh of electricity per hour to operate, according to our calculations. It does not require any replacement filters, just a thorough weekly cleaning.


Value


The Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic is only really a good value if you need above-average humidification power, you need to place your humidifier on a rug, and have a medium budget. If you have hard floors, there are better options at a similar price, and if you don't need above-average humidification, there are similar options for a lower price.

Conclusion


The Everlasting Comfort Ultrasonic is a good all-around humidifier, but it doesn't shine in any capacity. This limits our recommendation of this machine for only very specific situations.
