Lasko 7050 Misto

There are many products on the market that help keep the air temperature comfortable indoors during summer, but the Lasko 7050 Misto has made it possible for people to enjoy outdoor activities even when the weather is excessively warm. This unit is ideal for use at picnics, barbeques and will even make you popular at your favorite sporting event. It has a powerful misting spray that will cool the air around you up to 25 degrees.

Review Details

For consumers who are looking for versatility in an outdoor fan, the Lasko 7050 Misto is the perfect answer. It has a low profile meaning it sits close to the floor, which minimizes issues with it being knocked over. It also comes with a 6 foot hose that can be connected to any garden hose and can be controlled using the shut-off valve, making misting the air a breeze.

For further comfort this unit comes with louvers that have the ability to pivot electronically up to 90 degrees, ensuring that a wide area is covered by cool air/mist. Durability is something else that consumers have no need to worry about. This model is built to withstand UV rays and is rust resistant.

What We Liked

  • Incredibly Durable
    Made from heavy duty plastic, the Lasko 7050 has been made so it’s resistant to both UV rays and rust, making it perfect for outdoor use. It also has a sealed ball-bearing motor which will last for years.
  • Safe
    The 7050 is fitted with an in-line GFCI cord, 3 prong plugs and is ETL approve for outdoor use.
  • No Hassle Cool Mist
    This unit is equipped with a 9 foot hose that will connect to any standard garden hose. The misting kit included is easily detachable without the need for any tools for simple cleaning.
  • Versatile Cool Air/Mist
    The Lasko 7050 has 3 fan speeds and automatic louvers that can pivot up to 90 degrees, delivering a cool breeze wherever it’s needed. It’s powerful enough to cool the air around you up to 25 degrees making it perfect for outdoor activities in hot weather.

What We Didn't Like

  • Level of Mist
    You have to remember the mist this fan produces is pretty heavy duty due to the area it will cover. Therefore, it’s prudent to make sure it’s placed a fair distance away.
  • High Calcium Carbonate Water
    In areas where there is a lot of calcium carbonate in the water, you may suffer from a white residue once the mist has dried up.

Conclusion

Lasko has managed to bring comfortable summer living to the outdoors. The 7050 is a heavy duty misting fan that can be used just about anywhere in an outdoor environment, and has made it possible for people that normally hideaway in summer finally get outside. It’s very safe to use, has simple controls and delivers what it promises. For a price tag of little more than $130 it’s well worth the price.
