About Me Budget Shopper
I have several large plastic Whitche's Cauldrons. I use A LOT of the colored spider webs at my salon during Halloween, and when they loose their "stretch" I drape them over the sides of the Cauldrons. I stack several old vhs tapes in the middle and place the Mister in a shallow bowl of water on top. I get TONS of comments/compliments on the effect from adults, and I get myriad OOHS and AAHS from the Trick-or-Treaters!These things are AWESOME!

Better than I expected.
By Mel the spook
from Gouverneur, NY
Works better than I expected. Fog pours over the side of the bowl and the colors are perfect. I will put this in my Witch's cauldron next year with my glass bowl and I believe it will work great.

About Me Midrange Shopper
For the price, this little device is amazing and works every time. As long as you're not an idiot, it will do exactly what it needs to do and provide fun for years to come. I bought mine last holiday, and just pulled it out again to use this year. No problems at all. The device has to rest in a shallow bowl/cauldron of water, with about a 1/2" to 3/4" (inch) amount of water over the top of the LEDs. Any more or less and it won't work correctly...if at all. If you're still having trouble with the fog not billowing over the sides of the bowl/cauldron...put something in the bowl for the device to sit on (like a lil step) and it should work much better (as long as there's enough water over the top). It might take a little trial and error, but it will work just fine as long as the water level is right. Remember: this thing is fairly cheap, uses plain h20, and will definitely look cool on a table or front porch. However, if you're looking for enough fog to fill a room and flow around...spend a few extra dollars and buy a fogmachine that runs on juice. Enjoy!

awesome but be careful

About Me High-end Shopper
i saw this alot and did the same with seeing what other people did. i put mine in a small cauldren about 10 inches wide. i did not use the splash cover as having it off makes a soothing bubbling sound and an awesome spooking effect almost like boiling water. HOWEVER DO NOT STICK YOUR FINGERS OR ANYTHING ELSE NEAR THE MISTER WHEN IN THE WATER AND ON. does not feel great. but really makes a cool effect in my kitchen.......my kitchen is mad scientist/witch lab. wish i could post a picture. also small note, you cannot use this outside.

Wonderful mist maker
from Lombard Ill
Very small but very effective! This is worth every penny! Best of all, it uses tap water!!! You could use distilled water but tap water makes a thicker mist ( at least I think so ) Its great for putting in a small plastic cauldron and setting on a mad scientists desk scene. It looks great when the fog spills out of the bowl, cauldron, ect. Overall a great product. Get one before they are sold out!!!Go Spirit!

Just what I needed!
from Meridian, MS
I set it inside a larger cauldron over a Christmas light fake fire. I had bones and bugs and skulls hanging out in the mist and it is great!
Awesome for the price!
This mist maker is perfect for indoor use. And you don't have to worry about the dangers of using dry ice! The color changing is awesome. Makes it look like there's really something brewing in the witch's couldron! Well worth [$]
Great atlernative to dry ice!
By The Wedding Witch
from Enfield, CT
Planning a Halloween wedding event and this is a great alternative to using dry ice, for that "bubbling" cauldron effect. I did not realize it had the "changing color" feature.I tried it out and it works great - starts quickly. I will probably purchase another one, as this date will now be my anniversary every year, besides being "Halloween" my favorite "holiday". I can't wait until I can see it in the cauldron and my guests reaction at my upcoming wedding, on Halloween this year - 2010!

Super Cook Mist Maker
By Will's Mom
from Dallas, TX
This little mister is great for my witch's cauldron. The color changing makes it perfect for night time use. And for the price, it does a fantastic job.
GET THEM WHILE THEY ARE HOT... IDK
By Don RJ
from Newport News Va
I really like this item got it about 2 years ago use it from time to time no matter what time of the year. Dealing with the color changes wish there was a setting to set it to a set pattern the lights seem to change really fast. But other then that its a good item.

About Me Do-It-Yourself
This is an awsome item everyone should have it for his or her bedroom.
Works well,looks great, need to be careful with water spray
Used in a black ceramic chalice labeled POISON . Looked great when it works but not always easy to position the splash guard to allow the water jet to produce adequate fog without splashing all over my tabletop. So , I would advise to place this on a surface that cannot be damaged by water or cover surface with plastic wrap like I did or whatever works best for your display( I covered the plastic wrap with silk Autumn leaves).
I would buy this again.
This creates a really nice colorful mist inside of my witches cauldron.
Exactly what I needed.
By KY Haunter
from Lexington, KY
I run a yard haunt every year and needed something to give off some mild smoke to my witch's cauldron. This allowed me to get the effect I needed and use my larger fog machine for something else. It doesn't produce as much smoke as a fog machine, but perfect for smaller jobs.
By best Halloween house
from riverside ca
Worked great but you need to watch water level
I have used this in a small tabletop cauldron and in other small decorations. The cord is long, which is nice. It is easy to install and has a tight fitting 'plug' to keep water from leaking. While it makes a thick mat of mist inside the caulron, it does not spill out over the edge like a previous mist maker did. The color changing lighting is bright and eerie.
Simple, easy and effective.
from Chicago IL
I wish it came in a larger, more mist-producing size. We ended up using 2 mist makers in one "cauldron" to get a better effect.
from Vancouver, BC
Gives off a cool looking spooky mist that is chemical free. It's just water vapour!
Mist maker has multiple uses.
By Some Guy's Nickname
from Ogden, Utah
I bought one of these for fun. I know how they work so I knew what to expect. For those who don't know, distilled water is a terrible conductor of electricity, that is why some suggest salt which makes it an electrolyte and therefore more conductive. Most tap water is full of mineral salts on its own. There are actually 2 contacts that need some interaction. One is the disk and the other is the small metal contact in the top plastic protrusion. It actually pinpoint boils the water. If anyone other than me has experimented with it's much larger cousin which is the ultrasonic humidifier without the top on you will see the same effect. That disk does get hot, I found out with my finger tip. I did try this in my fish pond for fun. It had 5 inch diameter ring of mist. I think I will try this with fog juice.
Works well just a little small
By Shelly Momma
from St John's NL
Using this in a cauldron in my witches room. It's a bit small so I'll have to prop it up on another smaller bowl inside the cauldron. Works great other than that, no hassle to set up and the light changing is cute

Gets the job done
from Greensboro, NC
You have to find the perfect sized bowl for this cause it doesn't give off a whole lot of fog, but if you get it in the right container with the fog deflector in the right spot, it's efficient. I'm very pleased since it only takes water and its affordable. We put this under a clear punch bowl that sits on a caldron and the fog goes through the holes perfectly. And lights are a nice touch too.
from DFW, Texas
I bought this device in 2011 and have used it for two years now without any issues. I have a huge cauldron that I use each year as part of my driveway décor, and all I had to do was get a smaller bowl to sit inside the cauldron,sit the bowl on a brick so it was high enough to allow the fog to spill over the edge, fill the bowl with the right amount of water, and enjoy. It creates a great effect to go with my other zombie/witch themed items and costumes. If the water runs low, yes it can splash out and make a slight bit of a mess, but careful tending and just paying attention to it keeps this to a minimum. I'll be using it again this year as well, and am looking forward to many more years of use out of it.

Great Indoor "Fogger"
By Kari K.
The first reviewer wasn't using it right. You have to have a large SHALLOW body of water, then the misty fog overflows nicely. Add some rocks to disguise the fogger, and you can direct where the fog and water goes (yes, it can be splashy if you don't have a wide and shallow water container). Much cheaper than the $60 I paid for one in a home decor store for a fountain!
Very Nice & Safe
from Union City, CA
Yay! Today is November 1, 2011 & my Spirit store had 3 of these left & I was lucky enough to snatch one of them & get it for only [$]! For [$] this mist maker is awesome. Color-changing LEDs really help the mist seem more spooky & realistic. A great buy & looks good in an ordinary black plastic cauldron!
play misty for me...
from Dexter, NY
Nice little item, but haven't been able to make large quantities of mist....might be better under low lighting - high lighting seems to make the mist largely invisible....
Good addition, not a show stopper
By Mr. Fix It
from Atlanta Ga
Light mist and a little messy about a foot outside where the bubbling comes out. Listen, it is not expensive so don't expect a huge fog. Have it coming out of a skull the wife bought to serve candy out of....so now there is a bubbling mist coming out of a skulls head. Good addition, not a show stopper. For the money, I would buy again.
I wish I had bought more of them!
from Aberdeen, WA
I Bought more than one of them to use in a water fountain we have on the Porch. It is a long-ish fountain and I have one on either side of the water stream... They look awesome! I wish I had bought a few more as I was a bit disappointed by the amount of steam and how well the device can be spotted in the water... Surrounding it in marbles or decorative glass beads might help that. It is also a bit windy, having them in a fully enclosed porch or even inside might remedy that as well... And also perhaps just having more of them. BEST PART: I didn't consider the reflection on the ceiling of the Porch before I ordered and with the hanging bats it looks really cool! That was a really neat bonus. I was very glad I ordered them.
