In a year marked by forest fires and fears of airborne virus transmissions, breathing in clean, fresh air has never been on people’s minds more. That’s why having an air purifier at home is crucial, and it’s even better if your purifier is powerful, quiet, and space-saving. One machine that fits all three requirements is Coway’s Mighty, a small but — as its name suggests — mighty device that Amazon shoppers have called “an excellent air cleaner.”
This small purifier measures just 18 inches tall, but its four-stage filtration system is capable of catching common allergens like fine dust mites, cigarette smoke, mold, and pet hair, and it can even help eliminate odors. Normally $230, the Coway air purifier — available in white and black colorways — is just $199 right now. With Amazon Prime two-day shipping, shoppers who are looking for a practical and useful present can even order the purifier as a last-minute holiday gift for delivery before December 25.

With a coverage area up to 361 square feet, Coway’s purifier is perfect for middle-sized spaces like living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Its four layers of filtration include a pre-filter that catches large debris like hair, a deodorization filter that reduces food and pet odors, a HEPA filter that takes out fine dust and cigarette smoke, and a final vital ionizer layer that reduces harmful particles in the air. The appliance’s pollution sensor lets you know how clean or dirty your indoor air is, while its auto mode senses indoor air quality and adjusts accordingly as needed to ensure the air stays as fresh as possible.
Despite all these features, Coway’s air purifier remains a quiet machine that operates so discreetly, reviewers say they forget they have it on at all. “We bought this for use in our open living space which has an airtight fireplace with the blower running just about non-stop from October through April,” said a shopper. “Very pleased with the quiet operation (can't hear it at all when our fireplace blower is operating) and the air seems noticeably fresher.”
Others loved how the Mighty helped with their allergies and congestion. “I've been getting a lot of sinus congestion at night when I sleep, possibly due to the dusty air coming through the vents, but noticed a considerable difference after using this air purifier,” said a shopper. Another added, “I got this shortly after all the wildfires broke in [Southern California] and the air was quite terrible. I've used it for a little over a month now, and I think it does a great job deodorizing my room and filtering the air.”
With air purifiers more in demand than usual this year, Coway’s device might be gone before you know it — it wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen a popular air purifier sell out quickly. Shop it on sale at Amazon now.
