It doesn’t need to be peak allergy season to invest in an air purifier (there’s always dust and stale cooking smells to clear), which is why the Blueair 311 Auto sale going on over at the ‘Zon might be of interest. The slim, unassuming gadget—which could be anything from a speaker to a vibe-y storage container based on looks alone—is a workhorse that’s earned the top spot in our testing for the best air purifier overall. According to our intel, it’s also at the lowest price it’s ever been right now, just shy of 50% off the original price.
Blue 311 Auto Air Purifier
Not only does the HEPA-filter-equipped device trap odors and teeny-tiny particulates, but it also does so with a fairly dummyproof control system that’s programmable right on the machine itself so you don’t have to hassle with an external app. On automatic mode, the purifier monitors indoor particulate levels and rises to the occasion accordingly, keeping you abreast of your air quality levels with an LED light on the front that flashes blue, orange, or red to let you know when the air is excellent, moderate, or polluted. It’s also one of the quietest models we’ve tested so you can keep it close to your bedside at night. And with such a small footprint, you don’t have to worry about it taking over your entire floor.
