Review: Dyson Pure Cool Cryptomic – With this review we introduce you to an air purifier that fulfills all the functions of a fan. However, the Dyson Pure Cool Cryptomic is a lot more than that. The design and the functions again do justice to the Dyson philosophy. You can read directly from us why the high-priced fan with filter function is quite interesting.
We certainly don’t need to explain the English company Dyson in more detail. The globally active group is especially famous for their vacuum cleaners. Each product stands out from comparable competitors in terms of design. Dyson values minimalism and durability. The company invests a lot of money in research and development every year . As a result, Dyson has already managed to be the market leader with certain innovative technologies several times.
The first encounter with the Dyson Pure Cool Cryptomic – a design object
Today we are testing a product from Dyson’s air purifier division , the Pure Cool Cryptomic in the white / gold color variant. The fan is delivered in a really large box. In addition to some information and technical data, the selected color of the air purifier can already be seen on the outside. We have the golden model, Dyson currently offers the Pure Cool Cryptomic in a white / silver color variant.
If you open the box, you come across many individually packed parts. Unfortunately, Dyson uses a lot of plastic bags here , which could be avoided in the future. The individual parts of the air purifier are securely wrapped in it. In addition to the actual Dyson Pure Cool Cryptomic, buyers will only find the appropriate power supply unit, operating instructions, the corresponding remote control and the individual filters and covers. The scope of delivery is just as minimalistic as the design . The color of the remote control should be mentioned positively, because it is designed in the same style as the colored lower part of the air cleaner.
The selected materials are typically Dyson : Robust plastic with a high-gloss finish. Certainly metal would make the device look higher quality in some places, but the plastic used by Dyson is extremely durable and robust. We have been using a handheld vacuum cleaner from the British cult brand for several years, which is in use several times a week and yet has no malfunctions . The design of the Pure Cool Cryptomic is minimalistic and yet sensational . No matter where the air purifier is placed in your own four walls, as soon as you have guests, they ask about the futuristic object. We will explain to you in a moment that the optics chosen are also functional.
Assembly, commissioning & functions at a glance
The first commissioning went faster than expected. To do this, the semicircular filters only have to be put together and pressed against the lower part of the air cleaner. After they have clicked into place, they sit firmly and wobble-free. Then the Dyson fan still has to be supplied with power; to do this, the included power supply is plugged into the rear of the device . The Pure Cool Cryptomic can now be controlled with a remote control, via the app or via the integrated button. The remote control draws its power from the already inserted button cell .
Contrary to popular opinion, it is not enough to ventilate the apartment or individual rooms from time to time. Often germs and real bacterial foci are hidden in places or pieces of furniture that are hard to believe. The air is often polluted by carpeting, cooking meals, cleaning products and scented candles, as well as pollen and mold . This can lead to serious illness, poor sleep, sluggishness, nasal congestion, and many other limitations. Bacteria and germs contribute to an increased concentration of benzene and formaldehyde, VOCs, nitrogen oxide and various PM particles (0.1-10). Formaldehyde, for example, is not infrequently secreted from furniture or similar items in the home and can be carcinogenic.
According to Dyson, the Dyson Pure Cool Cryptomic filters 99.95 percent of precisely these pollutants from the air. The display on the front even shows this filtering live. Similar to a heart monitor, a graph shows in real time whether the air sucked in contains pollutants and germs.
The filtering is always carried out as soon as the device is switched on. The respective airflow direction can be adjusted using the remote control or the app . If it is warm and summery, the Dyson Pure Cool Cryptomic can circulate up to 290 liters of air per second. If you want, you can let the device rotate at different angles and up to 350 degrees . This makes the air purifier a perfect fan for the summer time. If you want to do something against the germy and dry heating air in winter, you can change the ventilation direction at the push of a button and the Dyson leads the air out to the rear without you noticing anything .
The device has a total of 10 different ventilation levels; Up to position 4 you can work next to the device without any problems . So the noise level is definitely limited. If the air purifier is positioned in the bedroom, the night mode ensures that the air is circulated slowly and, above all, quietly. All current pollutant values in the air can be displayed using the info button on the remote control . In addition, the device measures the room temperature and humidity and indicates the next filter change.
The associated Dyson Link app , which combines all Dyson products, can be quickly connected to the Pure Cool Cryptomic via Bluetooth. All relevant data on pollutants, filters and conditions of the respective room can then be viewed. Special timers can also be programmed and the entire air cleaner can be controlled via WLAN . Future updates of the multifunctional fan will also be imported via the app.
