This is the air purifier that eliminates up to 99.9% of airborne bacteria, mold, viruses, pet dander, dust mite allergens, and pollen without making a sound. With no filter to replace or clean, the device uses natural convection to silently draw airborne impurities into its patented ceramic heating chamber that instantly destroys the microorganisms with 400º F heat and then releases the clean air into the room. An independent laboratory confirmed that the unit destroyed up to 99.99% of bacteria and mold regardless of the microorganism’s size or level of hazardousness. The sanitized air is cooled and recirculated into the room, providing a healthier breathing environment without producing ozone or requiring you to clean or replace a costly filter. It will quickly and efficiently replace the air in a standard room size in about four hours of use. The air purifier remains cool to the touch and the heat it produces will not affect room temperature. For Rooms Up To 650' sq. Black. 10 1/2" H x 8 1/2" Diam. (3 1/3 lbs.)

Perfect air cleaner for our basement
from St. Louis
This is fantastic in our basement. It is especially good at cleaning the musty basement air. We tried it in our bedroom, but it has a very bright light which was annoying.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your feedback. The Germ and Mold Destroying Air Purifier’s anti-stress light on top of the unit has an esthetic effect, which many people find relaxing. It is possible to adjust the light intensity using the dimmer at the base, or even turn the light off. The light does not intervene or have any relation with the purifier’s patented sterilization core functioning.

We would definitely buy another!
By Florida Girl
from Palm Bay, FL
I bought this for my husband as a gift, hoping it would help him with his allergies to my cats (I have 6, run a Veterinary Clinic!)He decided to put it in our bedroom to help him sleep better, and it has made a definite difference! He said doesn't have to keep turning from side to side all night because one sinus always plugs up, now he's staying clear and can breathe much better. We will very likely buy another for some of the other parts of the house he's in the most. Its a bit pricey, but HS has such a good guarantee and return policy, I figured it was worth the cost, especially if I should need to return it, because I've dealt with the hassle of returning things before, and I know HS sells quality products, so the extra cost was worth it for me.

from Mont-Tremblant, QC
The first night we plugged it in, there was an immediate positive effect on my nasal and sinus congestion. I no longer have to take antihistamines - hurrah!We are planning to buy another unit for other rooms.

The air purifier that WORKS!
By Carol the teacher
from Mt. Vernon, IL
My high school classroom was toxic with pollen, dust, and all the germs that come from constantly rotating students. This air purifier immediately made a difference in the air quality. The students and I are both using significantly fewer tissues, and there is a noticeable difference in the air quality in my classroom and other rooms. It was worth the money I had to pay out of pocket for a healthier work environment.

Seems to be helping with bird mites!
from Ormond Beach, FL
My animals and I have been suffering from bird mites for almost 2 years now. Most people are unaware of the dangers of bringing a bird's nest into or near their home. The particular type of bird mite that we have (D. Gallinae) is the worst one you can get, as almost nothing will get rid of them once they're in your home. No chemicals will kill them, and we have spent thousands of dollars trying (unsuccessfully) to get rid of them. Bird mites make your life and your pets' lives a living hell. They bite you constantly because they feed off your blood, and the allergens produced from their saliva are a million times worse than dust mite allergens. You experience a painful, burning itch, and develop sores from the bites.The first hour I used this product, my animals and I started to notice a difference. I know it says that this product doesn't actually kill dust mites, but I truly believe that when the bird mites get close enough to the unit, they are sucked up and destroyed by the high heat. I only wish the company made a battery-operated version for my car (not the kind that plugs into a cigarette lighter) so that I could leave it on all of the time in my car. Once you have bird mites, they are not only in your home, some stay on your body and follow you where you go. It doesn't take long for your vehicle to become infested, too.Thank you for selling this unique product! Although our problem is far from being alleviated completely, I am hopeful that the longer I use it, the more the population will be reduced. I highly recommend this product for everyday use, but especially for the other poor souls out there who have to suffer daily with the agony of bird mites.

Can't recommend this unit
By Ms. stuffy nose
from Winchester, CT
My husband an I both have indoor allergies and I'm sorry to say that this unit didn't work for us. We ran the unit constantly for about 4 weeks and there was no improvement in our symptoms. Returning unit today for credit.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your comments. Since this product is designed to destroy mold and germ, there are no noticeable remains to indicate collection. However, if this unit is slightly warm on the top, it is on and working. Over time you should also notice a difference in air quality in up to 650 square feet of area. It is suggested not to place directly near doors, windows or heater/air conditioners to allow best air flow of the unit itself. Although our goal is your complete satisfaction with every product, we understand you may encounter the rare occasion when an item doesn't meet your expectations. That is why we make it easy to return an item—simply call our customer service team at 1-800-321-1484 any time day or night.

from Ontario, Canada
Plug it in and turn the single dial (on the bottom) to determine how bright it is (light can be turned all the way off). That's it! Nothing else to adjust.I have 2 and use in basement bedrooms to completely remove any mildew or 'damp' smell. Within 1 day, occupants of the bedrooms both noticed improvement in their breathing and quality of sleep.

Works Pretty Well But Gets Hot
from Boston, MA
After only a few hours in the bedroom I noticed a difference in my breathing/stuffiness. The only thing that worries me is that it's quite warm to the touch and if I hold my hand about 6 inches about the unit I still feel heat. It's not burning up hot, just warmer than I expected. The catalog says it stays cool, but the manual that came with the product says it gets warm. I'm just not sure it's supposed to be as warm as it is so I may return it. I'm still debating because it seems to work otherwise.

Moldy smell is gone. It is very easy to use, just plug it in.
terrific little machine
from Catskill Mountains
I just love this little air purifier. I also ownan Austin air purifier which is great, but it isENORMOUS and heavy and so is difficult to movefrom one floor to another. This small model isreally terrific....it's quiet and efficient. I will definitely buy another one.
