I had the pleasure of reviewing the Gurin Compact Dehumidifier Model DHMD-210 this week.
Do you have a room in your house that has excess moisture and needs a solution to get rid of not only the excess moisture but that mildew smell? The Gurin Compact Dehumidifier Model DHMD-210 is your solution. This model stands only nine (9) inches tall, but don’t underestimate this little powerhouse.
Like many of you, I have a damp basement that sometimes takes on a funky musty odor. We have a traditional large dehumidifier that we use. It’s so heavy and cumbersome, though, that we hate to even try to move it from room to room. Have you ever tried to empty the bucket from one of these things? I have yet to not spill half the water from the collection bucket trying to get it out of the dehumidifier and to the sink.
Gurin manufactures a portable compact dehumidifier for use in smaller areas of the home. Obviously, you can’t expect this to do the job of a dehumidifier (see photo at right) that you’d use in larger rooms (like our basement). For rooms the size of a bedroom or bath it’s perfect, though.
This model will do an area approximately 10′ x 12′ or smaller comfortably. The collection bin will hold up to 16 ounces of water. It has an automatic shut-off switch that will shut down the unit when the collection bin is full. It’s whisper quiet, so it can be used in an infant’s room without disturbing your sleeping child or baby.
From the Gurin website: Features For Model DHMD-210

The Gurin Electric Compact Dehumidifier uses Peltier Technology (no compressor), which makes it light and quiet. It’s perfect for bathrooms and small to mid-sized rooms where dampness and humidity are a problem. This unit is small enough to easily fit on your desk or workbench.
It extracts the moisture from the air and stores it in a spill-proof reservoir. Just plug it in and it quietly dries the air. Features an automatic shut-off switch to shut the unit off when the water reservoir is full. When this occurs, a ”full” indicator light will alert you that the reservoir needs to be emptied. Holds up to 16 oz.
