We purchased this or our daughter when she was 6 weeks with a severe head cold. Within half an hour of turning the vaporiser on, our daughter had already tarted to breathe easier! She was less congested and she also managed to sleep a little better too. My wife and I have used it for ourselves when we have head colds and it makes a huge difference! Great value for more and very effective!
Lasted one winter
Used cleaning tablets every third time. Filled to correct level. One day it smelt really bad, almost electrical. We stopped using it. Expensive for one winter... will not buy again
I love this vaporiser! You can't hear it at all and the room smells fantastic from the inhaler. I love that it's made to use normal Aussie tap water and the room feels noticeably humid. It only has a tiny 'on' light too, so nothing to brighten the room, which is awesome.
The one thing I would change is the ability to switch on/off on the system. You have to turn off at the power point & in our nursery, that is under the cot and extremely hard to get to, so we need to run a power cord from another room & under the door.
Purchased last month as bubs and ae coughing and he had a cold, stopped coughing on 2nd day, now we use this every night, find that we all have a good sleep, only problem is once turned on we have to open our room door as it gets abit stuffy and hot in the room, maybe cause our rooms small; i definitely recomend!
I would recommend it only if you're desperate and need one asap.
Had a horrible night last night as my 2 year old was congested with an annoying cough. Ended up running out at 10pm and purchased the euky bear vapouriser. Ive never used one before so wasnt sure what to expect.
Its okay. The steam is steaming out but its not very strong. My eldest son accidentally walked over it and he didnt even know he had walked over a vaporiser. Bubs still coughing and congested but its not as bad when its on, so it must be helping.
I bought the euky bear purely on impulse because there were pictures of teddy bears on it. But if I wasnt in a rush, I would have got the taav because of their on/off switch and bigger night light. Maybe in future these things could be added to the device and a stronger steam would be great!
Overall it does the job, its 'just' getting us through these desperate nights.
Barely a week old and replacement unit dead, no assistance from retailer - Chemist Warehouse.
Our unit seems to be a newer version than the one pictured here.
We swapped the original purchased unit on the first day, as we noticed heater had discolouration on the bottom of it (saw it when filling with water), girl at Chemist Warehouse swapped it. The second one was fine and worked just fine for the next week or so, then died unexpectedly, no burn smell, just stopped working, we quickly rang CW Friday evening as we desperately needed it (all down with the current deadly flu!), they refused to swap again, although girl recognised us she said she wasn't meant to swap in the first place and said that we needed to take it up with the manufacturer (I thought Aus. Consumer Law puts the onus on the retailer to replace or refund as a unit not suitable for purpose).
Be careful with your purchase and the service you expect from Chemist Warehouse if it breaks on you, let down way too early when most needed.
Great vaporiser but just need to ask a question
Is the water supposed to be a rusty colour and have a lot of gritty stuff floating in it each morning when I turn it off.
I have rinsed it out and ran it through with fresh water about 6 times this morning only to find there is still the brownish grittty stuff floating in the water. Please advise.
Was great when it worked
I've had the Euky bear vaporiser for about 2 years now. I found it did work well at the beginning nice smell only used Euky bear products. The lavender one was a personal favorite. We moved house nearly a year ago now. Went to use it worked for about 10 minutes then switched off. It doesn't work at all anymore. Unfortunately due to move we have lost receipts so even thou it's only 2 years old we can't be helped with warranty. Very disappointed did feel highly about the product until now. I will be purchasing a new product tomorrow but probably not Euky bear.
Loved the product until it started tripping out power
The product is great and I loved theat it would run all night and well, however recently every time I plugged in the vaporiser it would trip the power. I don't feel safe now leaving it running in bubs room
Hardly any steam only the smell comes thru
Previous vapouriser (different brand) worked well with lots if steam and great eucalyptus smell. No longer avaiable so bought a Euky Bear Steam Vaporiser...next to no steam or heat. Did not do what I had hoped it would do. So disappointing.
When I first purchased the machine it worked okay for my newborn, I used it with only water as the smell was too strong for both of us. I just turned it on tonight and it's much louder than usual, almost as loud as my kettle. It's still steaming so I assume it's fine, if I could go back I'd probably buy a different brand as I feel this vaporizer doesn't produce all that much steam.
I bought the vaporiser to use in baby's room as he had a cold and thought it might help with the congestion. Worked well for a couple of days - was nice and quiet, then started getting a weird plasticky smell so used the cleaning tablet with no oil (in another room). Didn't get rid of the smell but the eucalyptus smell covered it so I kept running it. A couple weeks later I found the inside column burnt away and broke off. Parts of it were ash. That's pretty poor quality. Definitely would not recommend.
Also experiencing a plastic smell (like melted plastic?)
I bought the eucybear vaporiser from chemist warehouse for our baby's room. We used it on two nights and everything was great. Then I refilled the water as instructed and switched on again. My partner noticed the weird melted plastic smell and then it became really noticeable. Too scared to use it in the baby's room now. A shame because we did like it.
Very handy one for little ones steam vaporizer
I absolutely love it for 2 years used but its break down on me as I maybe did not do the proper care well I have read the reviews her myself and it got 5 years warranty just have to find the receipt if I can. Anyway its very useful and always bought a Euky bear Eukaptus oil to pair the thing it works really well before. Or will buy new one very handy for little ones noses and me mom.
Great at first but stopped working within 3 months
Bought this product in April when my then 3 month old had a bad head cold with congestion. It was quiet and smelled lovely. And lasted the whole night. So initially we were really happy with it. We used it for the few weeks of her illness and then packed it away until this week when my toddler was sick. Unfortunately it wouldn't work. Not sure if we just got a bad one but wasn't impressed that we only got a few weeks out of it. Otherwise I would have recommended it to others.
We bought the newer model the other day and it's amazing. We use it first in our 3yr too then in our room for our 11 week old. The room smells lovely with the vaporiser, it also warms the room up. We did put 3 caps instead of the recommended 2 for more smell. I love it on myself and you really can see the benefits with the kids. Recommend to all. Chemist Warehouse have it on sale at the moment.
Where is the aroma?steam?
Used it for the first time last night after recommendations. Couldn't smell the aroma at all (even after hours of having it on) and moved it next to bed, even through instructions say to have it at least 1.2m away from any person. Still had no effect. Hardly steamed. Where the humidity? Will try another inhalent tonight if no difference I'll be asking for a full refund.
Not what I was expecting!
Needed a second vaporiser as bubba2 was also sick. We have the Tavv vapouriser that works great but they haven't made any of the solution for their product in a few months...so we opted to go this one Euky Bear.
First thoughts were it's smaller...but I dislike the fact it doesn't have an on and off switch just use the power point! And the fact that it doesn't have a safety cut off if the water evaporates to a certain level. Then we started using it. In such a large bedroom you can't smell anything nor does it feel like it does anything to help the phlegm. This product is definitely not worth the money. I wouldn't have purchased it if I knew it wasn't going to do much!
Works for me
First of all, I don't have this model but the round one, although I'm guessing they're pretty much the same thing. Second, I never used vaporiser before, so have nothing to compare it with, but I am satisfied with this product. I'm using it in my bedroom only as we're heating there for our little one, so the air gets really dry. So far so good! On the same day we first turn it on, my bub was sleeping better. Might be just coincidence but I'm assured it helps her breathing as it does help me. It's not like I'm all cured (as I have some medical issues) but it does make difference from when it's not turned on. I am using it with euky bear essential oil and also love it.
So I bought this new from chemist warehouse as soon I used it for the first time there was a burning smell so I contacted te company to advise they said they would send me a new heating module well that was on the 19th June....I have contacted them twice since and they keep saying I will have it by the end of the week....well it's been almost a month and still no replacement...very disappointing
