Tosot 50 Pint GDN50BA-A3EBA2B Dehumidifier

Tosot 50 Pint Dehumidifier Review

A brand with 20 years of experience in manufacturing, researching, and designing dehumidifiers. TOSOT 50 pint dehumidifier is a decent but slightly peculiar choice for a reason. Not because of the specification, performance or reliability as those checks out. It is because of the awkward price point that is rather close to its 70-pin counterpart. So what does TOSOT offer than none of the dehumidifiers do? Should you still go with it or just splash a little bit more for the bigger unit. Get the full answer in our review below.

Tosot 50 Pint review

  • Solid build quality with super easy to use controls.
  • Capable of dealing with lots of moisture up to 3,000 square feet.
  • Front drainage tank with see-through indicator.
  • Produce less noise than its other 50-pint dehumidifier peers.
  • Supports multiple drainage options with direct accessibility.
  • Can turn on or off the dehumidifier via the timer.
  • Seriously bulky and heavy for a 50-pint dehumidifier. Casters are best used on hard floors only.
  • On continuous use, it will generate quite a fair bit of condensation underneath the floor.
  • Can you set between 2/ 4 hours preset timer.

The giant white box as we called it. TOSOT 50 pint is a big and bulky dehumidifier. It is the exact size, design and weight of a 70-pint model at 14.8 x 24 x 11.4 in/ 51.8 lb weight. The ventilation is occupying large chunk of the front space with a bottom bucket taking up the rest. The water bucket is very easy to remove and put back despite of its size. With the bucket removed, you can also find a washable air filter tuck inside and can be slide out for cleaning. Moving to back, you will find the usual plug slot, a drainage access for gravity pump, and four casters right at the bottom. You know, the usual dehumidifier setup.

Tosot 50 Pint Dehumidifier Control Panel

Sticking with the controls, there are 7 buttons and a display screen on the top panel. The power button with indicator light is self-explanatory. The filter button is to reset the filter indicator light after 250 hours of operation. Used after you have washed the filter. The center – + buttons are used to control the humidity level at 5% increments per click. Set your desired humidity level between 35%-80%. You can also activate nonstop mode by repeatedly click on the – button until the display screen shows NS. The nonstop indicator light will also illuminate the mode you’re in. Fan speed will change between low, medium, and high per click. Timer button will either turn on or off the dehumidifier at an interval of 2/ 4 hours. When the dehumidifier is active, it will deactivate the machine when the time is up. When the dehumidifier is inactive (off), it will do the opposite. For model that comes with an internal pump, there is a dedicated pump button. First, connect a drain hose to the outlet, then press and hold the button for 3 seconds to activate it. Other passive features include alarm sound that will beep for 10 seconds when the bucket is missing for more than 3 minutes. A full indicator light that will stay on when the bucket is full or not inserted correctly.

To recap on the spec sheet, there is the usual front bucket, casters, washable air filter, 24-hour timer, and back drainage outlet. Safety features include auto shut-down, anti-frost that prevents ice from freezing up in the coil, and power outage restart.

TOSOT 50 pint dehumidifier is a solid moisture removal moisture within its vicinity. At 3 adjustable fan speed, it can cater to a room size between 1,500-3,000 square feet. More than enough to cover the bedroom, garage, basement, and even a bathroom. Operating at low temperature will not freeze up or slow up the dispersion. If you plan to leave the dehumidifier running all-night, TOSOT will not have any issue with minimal heat generated. There is decent airflow input and output even if is running at the lowest speed.

What’s inside count

TOSOT 50-pint dehumidifier is powered by the familiar refrigeration technology. How it works is simple. Damp air sucks into the ventilation and through a filter how an air purifier would work. Then the air will be chill pass many freezing cold pipes and extracting the water out. The water droplet will drip either to a collection tray or straight to a drain hole. Finally, the dry air will now flow past the compressor and heated into mists for dispersion. The cycle will repeat until the dehumidifier shuts off itself once a preset humidity point is achieved.

Keep it down

Perhaps the biggest advantage of having a 50-pint unit than a 70-pint. TOSOT 50-pint dehumidifier noise level is soft at low speed. subtle at mid-speed, and loud but bearable at high speed. For night use, you could set it to low or mid-speed if you want to speed things up. Being an Energy Star Rated unit, power usage is reasonable for its class but do not expect it to be energy efficient given it is still a dehumidifier.

As mentioned earlier, Tosot 50 Pint dehumidifier can be pricey even for the non-pump version. For the price, you do get all the techs, features, and safety features as standard. In our humble opinion, we recommend you to either step up to the 70-pint variant or step down to the 30-pint variant. It's your call.
Let's ignore Tosot official website for now as it has rather limited info. There is very limited availability for TOSOT 50 pint dehumidifier. Amazon has more stock for other variants but not sure why the 50-pint variant is left out. If you do find one, just go for it as it probably has the lowest price in town with free shipping (prime). Otherwise, try to hunt for one in your local retailers like Walmart, Costco or Home Depot.

Other variants

Tosot 30 Pint GDN30AZ-A3EBA2C Dehumidifier

Tosot 30 Pint

Cheaper but can only cover at best 1,500 square feet room size. All functionality and design are retained despite the lower variant.
Tosot 70 Pint Dehumidifier GDN70BA-A3EBA2D

Tosot 70 Pint

Our preferred choice at any time of the day. Top up a little and you'll get a more powerful unit and a bigger water tank.
