This humidifier projects a cylindrical column of mist from a round vent circling the tank. A glance through the transparent lid reveals the current water level. Should it be low, the tank can be lifted off the base for refilling. An ultrasonic evaporation system provides energy-efficient, cool mist humidification for spaces up to 540 square feet.
These notebooks can be grouped together using the pocket on the cover, making it easy to combine different paper types, (graph, lined, blank,etc.) or to simply add on to an existing diary or sketch book. Made from recycled paper using renewable energy.
A dense concentration of rods useful for holding cutlery and thin glassware fades evenly to a spacing large enough to accommodate bowls, plates and pans. A flexible mesh connects the posts, allowing the structure to be twisted open and rinsed. The excess water drains into a tray beneath, which can be emptied and cleaned.
Two aluminum panels containing high-efficiency conductive elements provide a lightweight heat source. The DBA heater ships flat and can be assembled with minimal effort. During the warmer months, the cord can be spooled around the central handle for easy storage.
