Just like the title says, this is a little sneak peek at the Whirlpool AP51030K Air Purifier I just bought. This unit was rated #1 in Consumer Reports in September of 2010.
As many of you know, I had to send the RabbitAir back so I ended up snagging this at my local Sears to replace it for now.
This unit cost a bit over $300 and actually has a higher CADR rating than the RabbitAir did.
I will be doing a full review of this unit in the coming months and since I will never have to send this unit back, I hope to do a longer term review on how long the filters lasted, etc.
That’s it, enjoy the teaser/unboxing video and I will return next week with a cigar review.
P.S. If you get motion sick it is not my fault, it’s Brian’s.

No iOS friendly? I would love to smoke inside but my lady friend hates it.. 🙁
Looks like an awesome unit! I need one of these, but I’m not sure I want to drop $300 on one, though…
Think I’ll wait & see how this performs for you, Mike.
Trust me, I have tried cheap ones and the filters are still expensive and they do not work even half as good. Spend the money on a good one and then bitch at the filter prices (like I do) because you will a lot happier.
Mike, how well did the Rabbit work? Unfortunately the Mrs. will only let me smoke the most mild of Connecticut’s (little azz Corona’s) inside during the winter. I had thought about the Rabbit and blanched at the cost if I didn’t know how well it would work.
Worked very well – https://stogiereview.com/2011/11/12/rabbit-air-minusa2-spa-780a-full-review/
I still think a lot of people are expecting miracles where the smoke and odor are sucked right into the purifier and clean fresh air comes out – that is not entirely true. It will still circulate the air in the room you are in and it may take a little bit to clear the air and remove MOST of the odor. You will be able to tell you smoked cigars in a room if you smoke in that same room all the time.
Do they help? Hell yes! Really amazing devices. Expensive but worth it if you need to reduce the amount of smoke and odor.
Hey Mike, what’s your expected timeline on this review? I’m looking forward to what conclusion you might draw on this. You’re right about cheap “cleaners” not being worth the trouble. Having worked for a long time in the print business where VOC’s are a problem, I’ve had first hand experience with the ineffectiveness of a lot of products.
And yeah, get back to the cigars,man, lol.
I am going to try to do it around the beginning of February since I am getting asked about it so much lol.
I will then come back to it down the road to see how it is working longer term.
