From air cooling to air purification, the Dyson Pure Cool Me takes the idea of a fan, makes it personal, and as many Dyson products do, take it to the next level when it comes to design and innovation.
Here, we review the key features of Dyson’s first personal air purifier fan.

This fan looks hugely different not just from traditional fans, but also from Dyson’s previous generation of fans. While typical fans have blades, the aforementioned fans don’t, and instead use Dyson’s airflow loop to project air out of the fan efficiently, with no blades to catch dirt and dust. The Pure Cool Me fan again uses new technology; a small dome and hood structure at the top of the fan uses what Dyson calls Core Flow™ Air Projection Technology.

Purifies Air with Activated Carbon and Glass HEPA Layer
Some studies have shown that the air in your home could be five times more polluted that the air outside. Cleaning products, carpets, air conditioners, tobacco smoke, and garbage all release microscopic particles and gasses that we breathe in every day. Many of these particles can be harmful. The Dyson Pure Cool Me removes 99.97% of gasses and particles that are as small as 0.3 microns.
So how effectively do Dyson fans and purifiers clean the air? It’s hard to measure obviously, but last summer we had severe wildfires in Alberta, and the air was toxic and choking for weeks on end. Inside my house, with all the windows closed, the Dyson fan obviously knew something was up, since the air levels were redlining. It was clearly doing it’s best to clean the air, since we were definitely able to breath much easier with the purifier running.
Noise level
The Dyson Pure Cool Me fan is quite quiet. While the air flow will make noise if it’s turned up, the motor is virtually silent. That means it’s easy to sleep with the fan running.
Cooling Range & airflow feel
There are 10 speed settings on the Dyson Pure Cool Me. Even set to 10, the fan runs fairly quietly.
Sitting right next to the fan, it’s easy to feel the breeze, but how far will it reach and how high do you need to turn it up? At 3 or 4 it’s a nice low cooling breeze to sleep beside. Around 8, it’s easy to feel across the room, and at 10, you can definitely feel the cooling effects on the other side of the bedroom. It’s actually kind of a neat sensation; it’s not a breeze like you get from a typical fan, it’s almost more of a swirling 360 degree cooling effect. It doesn’t feel like it’s blowing at you, more that the air is cooling your all around.

The Dyson remotes also have magnets that allow the remote to be stuck to the fan if you want to always know where it is when you’re not using it. The magnets in this one, however, seemed to be a bit off, and they’re on the side of the unit, not the top like in the other fans, and it was a challenge to get it to stick properly.
Design & sizing
Who wants a fan that sticks out like a sore thumb in your office or home, the layout of which you have designed so carefully? While it is primarily designed to provide targeted air for personal climate control, the convex design simultaneously gives this fan a unique, sleek appearance. This fan will blend in with any classy environment.
I will say, however, that for a personal fan, it’s big. It’s got a big base and it’s tall too. While this fan is definitely smaller than the full size Dyson fans, it’s still going to take up a decent amount of space on a desk or bedside table.
Built-In LCD Screen
The Built-In LCD screen is easy-to-read but discreet, and will tell you the airflow speed, current operating mode, and filter life of your fan.
Overall thoughts on Dyson Pure Cool Me
When it comes to the pros: the Dyson Pure Cool Me is compact and less expensive than a full size Dyson fan, making it perhaps more affordable for those looking to sample Dyson’s technology for the first time. It definitely cools effectively and the new domed design is cool and futuristic looking; it definitely doesn’t look like a fan.
When it comes to the cons, it would be nice if this was connected to the app; I’m a bit surprised that it doesn’t. It’s also still quite large in my opinion for a personal compact fan, and the base takes up a lot of table real estate.
Overall the Dyson Pure Cool Me delivers on its promises of keeping you cool, while capturing pollutants from the air. I can recommend the Dyson Dyson Pure Cool Me fan. It sells for about $449CAD
