A misting fan can be a great friend on a hot summer day. These fans blow a layer of water into the air, and if the air isn’t humid, the water evaporates, taking the heat with it. The fans come in different sizes from the giant pedestal fans to mini handheld ones. They are ideal for crowded environments in barbecues, parties, and festivals.
We have covered the best ones for you. Have a look!
10. Designer Aire Misting Fan ($169.99)
This indoor/outdoor, standing pedestal 15 inches fan is aesthetically designed to fit in all kinds of indoor as well as outdoor living space. The fan can be left outdoors as the weight painted base provides stability in windy conditions or the case of an accidental knock down. It has an adjustable height for comfort. Also, it spans a three-speed motor and is ideal for use in dry climates.
“Easy assembly and pretty powerful. Worked perfect for my cousin’s graduation party when it was 95+ degrees F outside. This fan saved the day. It has a sturdy base that prevents it from wobbling. It even has a circuit breaker (similar to the one on a hair dryer or an outlet near a water source) on the power cord, so it is up to all standards when it comes to safety. I would recommend this product.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
9. Cool-Off Misting Fan ($255.00)
This 18 inches outdoor misting fan comes with a 3M Epoxy coated durable finish. It has a 3-speed waterproof motor and is resistant to rust and UV rays. The unit comes with the mounting bracket and includes 6 inches inline Hexaphosphate filter. The unit produces 6500 cubic feet movement of air per minute on high setting and is capable of reducing the surrounding temperature by 30 degrees Celsius.
8. Luma Comfort Misting Fan ($627.22)
This one is a standing pedestal cooling fan with a heavy-duty construction (anti-corrosive material). It has rollers at the bottom. The 26 inches large head provides cooling to up to an area of 1000 sq ft. The head can rotate 90 degrees to provide comfort around the room. The centrifugal cooling system eliminates the problem of clogged nozzles, and the integrated 5 gallons tank can last up to 5 hours on high-speed. You can adjust the misting flow as well as the fan speed.
“We needed a couple misting fans for our back patio, and were torn between a few different models. At the end of the day, we wanted something that looked professional and was built to last. This misting fan has been all that, and then some! The fan, stand, base, etc. is all metal, and believe me when I tell you – it’s very durable. It’s also a very nice looking fan. Now, we’re the only place on the block that still has patrons sitting outside in the 90+ degree heat!
The front of the fan looks a bit different than some other models, with the misting circle in the centre. Don’t be fooled; it puts out a tonne of mist. The idea is supposed that the misting ring will never clog up like a nozzle would. We haven’t had it long enough to find out, but the concept makes sense. The tank does need to be refilled on occasion, but it quickly runs all afternoon and into the early evening for us without any issue. The design looks like it recycles the water that drips from the misting circle, which is cool. It’s also the only one we’ve seen with nice sturdy wheels, so we can quickly move it around to accommodate larger parties. It’s been a great investment for us so far.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
7. Welltop Misting Fan ($18.99)
This unit is a mini, handheld misting fan combined with a humidifier. The compactness and light weight make it portable and efficient for keeping your face refreshed while sitting in your home, office or saloon.

“Hello, this is Erica to review once again with another product review!
And today I am examining these little portable hand fan. The packaging of the fan was nice and on the inside was a USB charging cable also a small bottle to store water to place the fan and of course the fan. I’ve been testing out this little fan for a couple of days now I have come to a solid conclusion, this small fan is great. It is a rechargeable fan, and it doesn’t take a very long time to charge this weekend. Maybe about 30 minutes to charge it completely. This little fan has three settings. Low, medium and high. It fits perfect in my hands and also in my purse. Is one of those products that is great for the summertime because the ticket and you can charge it anywhere also. This is one of those products that is great for the summertime because you can take it anywhere and you can charge it anywhere also. Another great thing about this fan is that it has a place for you to put water in it so that while the fan is on your face, it sprays water at you. The fan also can stand. For me is no con for this fan Because it works just as described in the product description.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
6. SPT Misting Fan ($30.37)
This set of 2, personal handheld misting fan is made of plastic. The unit produces a fine mist of continuous air and water and has an easy to slide ON/OFF button. It uses a pressurized tank to deliver fine mist through brass and stainless steel nozzle. With the mist carried in front of the blade, it keeps the mist from spinning off the fan blade to high wet droplets giving you the best personal cooling experience available. It can work with 2 AA batteries.
“I am happy with the purchase and think the two pack is a great deal. The fan works great, and so does the mist. The only thing I don’t like is that the fan is pretty loud. I was using it while watching TV and had to turn the TV up a bit to hear over the noise. It probably would not be a problem if you are using it outside or in more public places as these locations are already loud. Also, the clip that is attached to the top so that you can clip it onto a backpack or something is made of plastic and does not feel like it would last very long. I am going to be buying a metal one to replace it since I will be hanging this on my backpack while at Disneyland for a week and I don’t want it to break off.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
5. Holmes Misting Fan ($74.99)
The Holmes’ outdoor, pedestal misting fan standing 16 inches tall. The unit’s height is adjustable, and it has a motorized oscillation for cooling a large area with three adjustable speed settings. It is simple, drip-free and cools efficiently.
“This fan has worked perfectly for us. It’s held up to the elements outside; the mist still works months later, and the fan can move some air. It was also easy to assemble out of the box and get going. The only reason it doesn’t earn five stars is that, for the price, it does look a little cheap and can be fairly easily knocked over (although nothing broke).” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
4. iEGrow Misting Fan ($19.99)
This handheld, a mini misting fan comes with a personal humidifier. The unit features three modes as follows:
- Fan mode
- Misty mode
- Fan plus Misty
The lightweight, portable and convenient misting fan is operated by built-in rechargeable battery or a micro USB cable.
“Haven’t found a downside yet. Well built, sturdy and well balanced. Fits in hand well and also stand on its own without concern of tipping or falling. Little noise of the fan blades and motor for the air flow!! While the leaves are relatively small, they are tilted to move a lot of air–think of the way a very expensive prop would look like on an outboard boat engine. Easy to operate, easy to fill and it works great in all three modes.
The mist is a real mist. This is the best-engineered handheld personal use item I’ve come across in my adult life. This item is truly, and exceptional value for your dollar spent.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
3. Lasko Misting Fan ($111.78)
This outdoor misting fan has in-line GFCI cord with three prong plugs for safe outdoor use and is ETL listed for safety. The unit reduces the air temperature by 25 degrees and creates a 90 degrees sweep for providing a comfortable environment to everyone around. The unit is resistant to inclement weather, Ultraviolet rays, and rust. It is ideal for picnics, decks, patios, sports and even DIY projects.
“I love this little guy- it provides a refreshing, cold (but wet!) breeze – and can bring instant relief to a miserable and hot location. It’s as easy as it looks – hooks up the hose, plug it in, and turn it on. It works immediately: it kicks out a fine mist, and the powerful little fan blows it out for some distance, bringing quick cooling. I will agree with the other posters – it is wet. The area in front of the fan, for a good six to ten feet, will quickly dampen and start paddling within a few minutes. For that reason, you’re not going to want to direct this where slipping is an issue, or where people don’t otherwise want to get wet. It’s perfect for heading into a garden area, onto your children, over the grass, or near a hot tub or poolside (or even a hot grill or BBQ area in the sun). Note that the cooling breeze extends beyond the “wet” area – so if you position this far enough back from the area you want to cool, you will still be fine. I use it to cool areas of the garden for animals (we’re in northern California, and 100+ days are common here), and for that purpose it is ideal. For this kind of money, you’re not going to get a “dry mist” device – those require much more powerful motors to atomise the water into tiny particles which evaporate before they settle. If that’s what you want, you’ll have to pay considerably more. For my purposes, this is great!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
2. NewAir Misting Fan ($119.99)
This one is an oscillating, 18 inches outdoor misting fan with a sturdy construction to outdoor weather elements. The unit features three convenient fan speeds and extends its misting process to 500 sq ft. The push buttons are user-friendly. The tilting head and the adjustable height allows for incredibly comfortable and personalized usage. Its black finish complements most outdoor decorations.
“I never write reviews, but I have to for this one. I was looking and comparing these things all over the web, saw some that were as high as $700, and ones with reservoirs. This one seemed to get the best reviews, and now I know why. Reasonably Priced compared to others I’ve found. Well, I got it Friday, had a yard sale Saturday and Sunday and both days this was blowing on me while I sat outside in the heat. Amazing, I got a great tan because it keeps your skin cold and you don’t burn. Love Love Love this fan. I over heat easy, hate hot weather; now I don’t even care how high the temp gets, you can sit in the direct sun and feel cold. This thing rocks.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
1. Arctic Cove Misting Fan ($148.99)
This unit is in fact, a dual purpose bucket top misting fan. It can sit on a bucket and can be used with a garden hose. It works with an 18-volt Lithium-ion battery for up 2.5 to 7 hours of runtime with 4.0 battery and fan on low adjustment.
“I ordered this on Saturday and got it on Tuesday, super fast shipping. Got it unpacked and started charging the battery. Next morning I took it to my shop with me. I just wanted to see how long it would last on the battery with the fan on high and the pump going at the same time. We got 2 hours out of it. Now, it’s 104 degrees in Texas; we’re all sitting around with a cold beverage and this thing did an excellent job of keeping us cooled down! It just didn’t last long enough, but I wanted to see how long I get from it and if it did as advertise before I order spare batteries… We got a camping trip planned, and the extra batteries will be ordered ASAP. I’ll add more later. Took this out on this last weekend’s camping trip, along with spare batteries. Wife only used the fan, but it lasted most of the night, each night. Very impressive!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
