This handheld steam inhaler ranked the highest in every test conducted by The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute, from steaming effectiveness, to comfort, to ease of use. The Best Personal Steam Inhaler's patented capillary force vapor technology produces a micromist of 5-micron steam that panelists described as "comfortably warm without being overwhelming," unlike lesser units that sprayed droplets of hot water. The Best model requires no warm-up and produces germ-free vapor for up to 25 minutes, far surpassing models that needed five minutes to heat up and ran dry after just seven minutes. Its flexible rubber mask contours to the shape of your face so that steam cannot escape, and a temperature control keeps the mist between a comfortable 105° F and 115° F. Of all tested models, it was the only one that was self-drying, didn't require clean up, and remained cool to the touch. Includes carrying bag and 280 ml of demineralized water. Plugs into AC. 11" H x 4" W x 3" L. (2 lbs.)

Great for my allergies
from Santa Rosa, CA
This unit I bought for my daughter. After using my unit for 6 months, I no longer have sinus headaches or nose bleeds. My pollen allergies last all year for me. I have used all types of nasal wash equipment and this is by far the best.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Really helps decongest sinuses, gentle and effective. Would be nice if a child size mask was offered as part of the kit.

The adult size mask is too large for me
from Southern Illinois
I bought this to more easily combat dryness in my breathing passages. I like that it is self-cleaning. Must use distilled water. I do not like that the adult-size mask is too large for my face. I may need a child-size mask since I am a small-boned female, but that may not be large enough. Pending trying out a different mask. It does the job, but I must struggle uncomfortably to block the space under my chin so the moisture vapor goes into my breathing passages.
Love The Best Personal Steam Inhaler
from Nashua, NH
I have had sinus problems for years, and finally have some relief. The warm steam for 25 minutes per day has opened my sinuses, made my lips very soft, and totally ended the blackhead problem on my nose. Added bonuses! No more sinus meds., so the inhaler should pay for itself quickly.
Best Personal Steamer
By Aunty Em
from Freeport, IL
I use this product at least twice a day. More if I'm really congested and I am able to use less over the counter medications to open my sinuses. I don't have to worry about burning my nasel passages or drying out my eyes as I did with a pot of boiling water. Best purchas I ever made.
