Between claims of filtering COVID-19 particles to reducing the amount of wildfire smoke in the home, air purifiers were a hot commodity in 2020. So popular, in fact, that they became hard to find. One of the best air purifiers we tested, the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Cryptomic HP06, for instance, has been out of stock since early December.

For the past month or so, consumers haven't been able to find this precious purifier on Dyson's website, Amazon, or Walmart. The only way to buy one has been to purchase a refurbished model or a price-gouged version from a third-party seller. But now, this sought-after air purifier is finally back in stock at Dyson, meaning you can get this superior model for its retail price of $749.99.
This may seem like a lot of money for an air purifier, but the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Cryptomic goes above and beyond every other model. This is why it won 'Best Upgrade' when we tested air purifiers at Reviewed. Here's why it's worth the hefty price tag—and where you can buy one.

Why the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Cryptomic is worth it
The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Cryptomic is popular because it's more than just an air purifier—it's also a space heater and a cooling fan, making it the most versatile air purifier we've ever tested. It's also one of the most attractive air purifiers on the market and doesn't look like an unsightly cube in the middle of your living room. We love it so much, we even recommended it as a gift over the holidays.
Plus, it excelled in our testing. The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Cryptomic has both carbon and HEPA filters and can capture 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. It also has an extra permanent cryptomic panel that filters formaldehyde, and it was great at removing gross smells and smoke from the room. Even more, it oscillates 350 degrees, integrates with Alexa and Siri, and can be controlled with an intuitive app.
You can also opt to use an auto mode, where the air purifier will automatically turn on when it detects pollution in the room—no button pushing necessary. This Dyson air purifier is three devices in one, and you can use it during all times of the year to heat and cool your space, as well, which more than justifies the price.
If you want to snag one, we recommend buying it sooner rather than later as Dyson air purifiers have previously sold out with increased demand during wildfire season and spending more time at home, in general. Can’t splurge on a $750 air purifier right now? No worries. Our ‘Best Overall’ air purifier, the Winix 5500-2, is less money and available on Amazon.
