Housewares Wrap-Up: Essick: Decor in the Air
April 10, 2010,
One thing humidifiers are not known for is being fashionable. But Essick has turned that thinking upside down with the EP9 500 Pedestal, its new humidifier which was formally launched during the International Home + Housewares Show.
The Pedestal is made with a plastic that is formulated to resemble mahogany. "With a top that has a marble finish, this unit looks like furniture," said Mark Ulrey, director of sales for Essick. The top can be covered with any standard, 12-by-12-inch tile to fit the room's decor.
Among the Pedestal's other features are digital control, a variable-speed motor, an automatic humidistat and an automatic shutoff mechanism. It's priced to retail at from $149 to $169.
