If you are looking for are plastic vaporizers safe then I must tell you that, for me and hubby we take steam the conventional way....boil water in a steel utensil. But for my toddler son, that's not very safe as he can't sit still, so I use a plastic steamer, which is more like a humidifier. It's available on Amazon. This is the one - Console Premier Big Size Vaporizer https://www.amazon.in/dp/B01N4MAQMO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_69xpCbD0G7T1G. Not sure if steel options are available in this one?

Plastic is certainly harmful and that too at high temperature! Honestly, even I have a plastic steamer at home and although we have become cautious about not using plastics, it never occurred to me that the steamer is also plastic! I guess that's the reason most health coaches recommend taking steam the traditional way - take boiled water in a steel vessel and cover your head with a towel!

Thanks for bringing in awareness:-)

Ideally one should be using stainless steel alternatives or makeshifts.

Plastics contain BPA which is known to leach with heat or breakage. And BPA is harmful
