I finally found it!

"I have tried several whole house humidifiers and found them unsatisfactory for a variety of reasons. Filling them with water is especially difficult.

The AIRCARE® Designer Series evaporative humidifier is designed to satisfy home humidity requirements through the principle of evaporation of water into the air. After water is added to the internal basin, the filter begins to soak up the water and becomes completely saturated within 30 minutes. Air is drawn in from the rear of the humidifier and through the filter by a powerful circulating fan. As air passes through the filter, moisture is absorbed into the air and then released through the side vents of the humidifier. This moist air is released in the form of vapor without any messy water drippings. All evaporation into the air takes place in the humidifier, which means that the residue left by evaporating water is not passed into the home but remains in the filter. This ensures only clean, healthy air is circulated throughout the home.
The unit requires 1 replacement wicking filter. Replace the evaporative wicking filter once per season at the start of the humidification season. You may have to change the filter more often depending on water conditions in your area. Filter can be rinsed in clear water if needed.
Assembled in Little Rock, Arkansas using components made in both the US and China.

The AIRCARE® Designer Series 9 gallon evaporative humidifier is one of the best looking large humidifiers we have tested to date. Its design is attractive and its size is geared towards saving space while still being functional. Aside from aesthetics, our testers raved over the easy front-fill feature, which is a very common complaint about humidifiers. On the front of the humidifier under the controls is a convenient little door that pops open for extremely easy filling; simply fill up a water pitcher and pour the water in through the fill door. This humidifier will cover an area up to 2,000 square feet and has a 3.5 gallon water reservoir to reduce the frequency of fills.
