    Even with a capacity to remove up to 30 pints of water per day, the Frigidaire FAD301NUD couldn’t be more portable. It has easy roll casters, carry handles to the top and sides and will take up little space in the home.

What We Didn't Like

  • Noise Levels
    The FAD301NUD is fitted with one speed only and the noise it emits can be an annoyance to some users.
  • Bucket Size
    This unit is powerful and will remove 30 pints of water per day, however, the bucket only has a capacity for 12 pints. For those living in high humid areas, if you're using the bucket you should be prepared to empty it several times per day.


The Frigidaire FAD301NUD 30 pint dehumidifier rates well over average on many online retail sites. It’s efficient at removing moisture from the air and it will make a difference in the overall freshness indoors. It’s highly portable which means it’s easy to use in several rooms throughout the day, and due to the dual drainage options it’s incredibly easy to use. In our opinion, it’s very reasonably priced.
