Instead of buying two separate equipments, one for cooling and one for purifing, the Dyson Pure Cool does both! This space-saving feature is especially important in a space-limited country like Singapore.
|Side by side comparison with the fan my baby boy was using before the Dyson Pure Cool. The latter definitely looks more classy, doesn't it?|
If you're wondering where the purifier is, well it's cleverly hidden in the base of the Dyson Pure Cool where the motor is.

Right: This pretty blue thing is actually the filter. You need to remove the whole thing and replace approximately once a year (plus minus depending on how often you use it). That's not very often.

(you can see it's made up of high quality material that traps minute particles in the air)
It's really easy to set up too. All you need to do is to stack the filter over the motor, align the top circle frame and click it in place.

The filter can remove 99.95% of harmful particles in the air and this can include bacteria, airborne pollutants and even odours. This ensures that the air in my room is always fresh and clean =)
Oh and that is not even the best part. This really cool remote control can be attached to the top of the circular frame via magnetisation! No need to worry that you can't find your remote! =)

We use it everyday now because it is extremely safe for kids; no need to worry that their fingers will get caught in the regular fan blades (I've personally have had my finger caught on the fan blade before and let's just say that it wasn't a pleasant experience!).

The Dyson Pure Cool, like all other Dyson cooling units, is also very light; it can be moved easily to any location you like, unlike regular full length fans that can sometimes break your back trying to move them.

(which can also be a bad thing cos that means you have to make sure that they don't play with it!)
Many people are concerned about the wind strength and admittedly, it is probably not as strong as those mega huge fans. But compared to a standard fan like the little pink one that we had, it's quite comparable. The Dyson Pure Cool also has 10 levels of wind speed and we only used maybe level 7 or 8. Hubby, who is super scared of being hot, loves to dominate it and I have had to "snatch" it back many times for my boy! *laughs*
|The Dyson Pure Cool is meant for my baby!|
The Dyson Pure Cool is perfect for full time working mums too because it can be cleaned in just 2 minutes! No more cleaning the fan blade by blade! *grin*
Of course, the downside of this fan is that it can only blow left right and not up down. And it is very expensive (retails for about S$999)! But it's a 2-in-1 and you do get what you pay for so if you can afford it, I would say go for it!
In this season of the haze, I'm just glad to have this fan for my my whole family! =)
