Good for a while but broke after a year and tripped the power
Our Euky Bear Vapouriser worked well for the first year but after that, despite using the cleaning tablet and oils as instructed, it suddenly broke and tripped our power too. Very disappointed given the 5 year warranty.
A lifesaver for anyone with a cold
I've been using this for a week now it's been great at relieving symptoms of cold and stopping the dry cough cycle after only a day. It did have a funny smell, like a chemical smell that revolted me and I couldn't work out what it was. I kept using cleaning tablets but it wasn't helping. Then I drank a glass of water when I usually drink from a bottle. It was that smell! I had completely forgotten that the water in my apartment is very hard and has too much chlorine in it, so much so that we have a filter on our shower. I used my Britta filter ...to fill the vaporiser last night and no smell! So if anyone else is experiencing that problem try using filtered water! I have no issues with the vaporiser, my only wish is that it would turn off automatically when the tank runs dry for my own piece of mind. Otherwise great product and a must have for winter.
Purchased in June 2019 for $49.95.
Great for adults too
I bought this for my partner and myself as we often suffer sinus issues.
I am a light sleeper and have found this to be very quiet, it almost sounds like gentle rain. The water amount is perfect, it definitely lasts 14 hours, however after the 12 hour mark I find the steam decreases slightly (which is not an issue for me personally). I like that the design is fairly compact, it doesn't take up too much space but definitely does the job.
My only criticism is that it does not have automatic shut off. It's not an issue for me now but could be in the future if I was to be using it for children.
Overall a great product and does exactly what I was hoping.
So far so good, early days.
Works as advertised, no problems so far and has been an excellent tool for dealing with blocked noses. Also found it beneficial for the dry winter weather (helps bump up humidity from ~40% to a more reasonable ~60%) helps alleviate dry skin.
Cannot comment on reliability yet - Still new and working as intended.
- Price is reasonable
- Easy clean design (possibly the best one compared to others on the market - personal observation)
- Very quiet
- Generous tank ensures you don't run out of water prematurely.
Not sure I would recommend
I bought my Euky Bear brand new a few days ago . It constantly smells like burning plastic , it hasn’t run out of water so I’m not sure if this is normal with the tablet ? . I would guess not. I unfortunately bought from my local chemist and don’t have a receipt . There also seems to be a white crust around where the steam comes out . Not %100 sure if I’m happy with this product and if I should request a replacement and if I can do so without a receipt.
Worked well for the first 6 nights
Worked really well the first 6 nights we ran it. Then after 6 nights it made a gurgling bubble sound and customer support don't answer or return my voice message.. I'm really not sure if it's safe to keep using.
Purchased in January 2019 for $60.00.
The smell of my childhood
I purchased this vaporiser when my little one had a stuffy nose and was worried it was catching his first cold. I was hesitant to start with as it is a little bulky and not this nicest looking contracption you’ve seen, but boy how we love this now. Both my hubby and bubba benefit greatly from this with having chest issues. The smell reminds me of my grandmothers house in the winter and brings a smile to my face.
And not to mention how quiet it is!!!!
Fantastic! Helped my sons cold!
I bought this after my son got his first cold at 3 months old. After a few nights of running it I could notice a great improvement in my sons condition. He wasn’t as sniffly as he has been and seemed to be getting a better sleep and the fact that it’s so quiet is an added bonus! The quiet factor is what made me buy it in the first place when faced with numerous vaporisers in the chemist. I saw the words “Australia’s quietest vaporiser” and I was sold! I’m so glad I bought it!
I'm so shattered that my mum wasted her money on this garbage after I said I needed one for my baby. After one use, from the second time onwards, it started to smell badly of burnt plastic. I tried to add more inhalant but it didn't work. I also rinse it after each use so I don't understand it's problem other than it clearly must be a piece of crap. I hope my mum has the receipt still. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone or use it again. I'll be buying a much better quality one from somewhere else.
Love it! So quiet.
I bought this because my 11 month old son had come down with his first cold and was having a lot of trouble breathing at night. This really helped him! It's pretty well silent, it's so easy to use and the price is really reasonable. We've since used it on our own room, and it's helped settle down dry, irritated coughs at night time as well. It lasts so long, you don't need to top up at all. I'm sure it's lasted longer than the time that's stated as well.
I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
DIdn't even last a year
Purchased the Euky Bear Vaporiser last August for my daughter. She has a cold and went to plug it last night does not turn on. Not happy as now I have to buy another one. Followed all the instructions, only used their brand inhalant. Definitely buying a different brand.
Love our Euky Bear!
We purchased this vaporiser because our son had a terrible cough and he isn’t old enough for cough mixture. I bought this brand because it was reasonably priced and because I am familiar with their Euky Bear rub and other eucalyptus based products. I am so happy with it! Very easy to follow instructions, the inhalant oils smell really pleasant and not at all overpowering but most importantly it calmed his cough overnight. I am going to be rotating it through everyone’s bedroom all winter now. I only wish I’d bought one sooner!
This has been a great purchase I use it very regularly and have now purchased a second one! It is very quiet and does not wake my baby up during the night, it’s easy to clean and very easy to use the only downside I will mention is I wish it had a simple on off button rather then turning it off at the wall.
Questions & Answers
My unit was on and i noticed the light flickering until it shut down while plugged. After a few minutes of unplugging it, it turned on then the light turned off again. And now, it doesn’t turn on anymore. Before this incident, out unit made the water inside orange in color With black sediments. This is the first time this happened! What should we do?
Thanks for getting in touch! These two incidents are unrelated, and there's no need to worry about either.
The light on the top of the unit simply just a night light, and has no effect on the operation of the unit. It sounds like your light has become faulty, but if your unit still works and you're happy to use it without the night light, it's no problem to do so. If you prefer to have a nightlight (and that is perfectly your choice) we can replace your unit under warranty. It's up to you, but doesn't indicate any further issue.
With the orange/ black sediment, this is also normal. It is minerals from your tap water. It's harmless and should just be washed away when you rinse the unit out. Make sure you are using the Euky Bear cleaning tablets every 1-2 uses to help prevent mineral scale from building up inside the unit.
Another great trick to try is a "vinegar flush" - add 2-3 tablespoons of white vinegar to the tank, fill to the fill line with water and run your vaporiser for 6-8 hours or overnight. This gives it a really good clean and can help reduce the impact of mineral sediment.
If you'd like to pursue a replacement because of the light, or if you have any other concerns please get in touch with our Customer Service team on Freecall 1800 655 841 or email email@example.com.
Kind Regards, Euky Bear.
Do you have to place it on the ground ? Or can you put it on a shelf. Asking for in the future when bub grows up and starts touching things
Hi Carissa, we only recommend to place the Vaporiser on the ground so that it cannot be accidently pulled down from somewhere high by a child. But it also important to be placed away from curious hands, so a shelf is no problems provided they cannot access it - whatever you feel is safest and least accessible from bub. Hope that helps.
What are the ingredients in the Euky Bear Cleaning Tablets???
The active ingredient is citric acid. The tablet is held together with inactive, non-toxic binding ingredients which help the tablet dissolve gradually during use.
If you would like more information please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kindest Regards, Euky Bear.
