If you need a little help with the air quality in your home, Aldi sells various small appliances throughout the year to help you. Whether you’re looking for an air conditioner, and air purifier or a dehumidifier, or a humidifier, you only need to wait a few months to spot appliances like these at your favorite discount grocer.
As we head into the winter months, a common challenge many households deal with is dry air, which can irritate your eyes, nose, throat, and skin. It can worsen asthma symptoms or dry skin symptoms. The solution is to use a humidifier. Some people install whole-house humidifiers that are integrated into your plumbing and the blower system in your furnace. Other people opt to simply purchase small humidifiers that can be plugged into an electrical outlet and used in a single room or moved around to different rooms as needed.
Aldi has sold a wide range of portable, single-room humidifiers over the years, including a cool mist humidifier, an LED ultrasonic humidifier, and a portable cool mist humidifier that uses a standard plastic water bottle. Sometimes Aldi sells humidifiers with a whimsical touch that are perfect for using in a nursery or child’s bedroom. For instance, in the fall of 2020, Aldi sold humidifiers that looked like foxes or unicorns.
In 2021, Aldi once again sold humidifiers that appeal to the younger crowd, or to the young at heart, with humidifiers that look like a duck or a frog. Then in the fall of 2022, Aldi sold these humidifiers for kids again but in fox and sheep designs. Now, in 2023, Aldi is selling the humidifiers again in elephant or fox designs.
What We Know:
The Easy Home Elephant or Fox Cool Mist Humidifier (Product Code: 823998 in 2023) cost $29.99 in September of 2023. That’s $10 less than the $39.99 these animal-design humidifiers sold for in 2022, and the 2023 price is back down to the same price they cost in 2021. This is another time I’ve seen Aldi quietly lower prices on certain Aldi Finds in 2023.
They’re on the lower price range compared to other children’s humidifiers I spotted on the market. If you want a humidifier that looks like an animal, you might find some cheaper ones elsewhere, but you’ll also find some that cost more.
These are an Aldi Find, which means they’re only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone unless Aldi decides to bring them back at some point. Aldi does not offer online ordering after these sell out at your local store.
These are fun-looking little gadgets. Among the 2023 models, the elephant is gray with a trunk that sticks up and large ears that lie flat on its head. The fox is an orange-brown color with pointed ears, a black nose, and cute little feet on the bottom.
Here’s more info on the 2023 humidifiers, according to Aldi:
- Ideal output for medium sized rooms
- Automatic shut-off when water is empty
- 1-gallon tank capacity
- Runs up to 24 hours with 1 fill
- Offers long-lasting relief from dry air
- Features adjustable mist output
- One dial to control ON-OFF and the amount of mist output
- Removable water tank
- Whisper-quiet operation
- No filter required
The Duck humidifier in 2021 featured an LED color changing nightlight, but we haven’t seen anything about the 2022 humidifiers including lights.
The 2021 humidifiers came with a two-year warranty. Aldi has not yet published warranty information on the 2023 models.
What We Don’t Know:
We have not tried any of these Easy Home Cool Mist Humidifiers, so we don’t know how well they work. Our goal with open thread posts such as this one is to offer a space for readers to share about their experiences with a product.
