I agree with many reviewers on the temperature of the exterior. It's not super hot, but it's warm enough to where it can melt ice in matter of minutes. What drives me insane about this boiling pot is that it constantly reboils every few hours. It does not shift to reboil mode, but you can hear it from a distance. It's quite noticeable actually. Both of these flaws indicate to me that it uses more electricity than other boiling pots.
Secondly, it is also true that the water will not dispense entirely from the pot. There will always be water in the pot even if it stops dispensing.
What I really like about it is that you can dispense water in three methods.
Overall, I don't know the quality of other thermal pot around this price so I can't compare. However, I will say that if you do plan on using one for life, then be sure to invest in a really good one. (Zojirushi is a good start). I cut corners this time and now it's costing me. Since I do not planning on using it during the summer months, I guess it's no big deal unless it's winter time.
- This model features 3 different levels of water temperature, 98, 85, and 60. Remember, though, if you usually keep your water at 98 degrees, it doesn't go down to 85 or 60 degrees instantly. Tatung keeps it at just 1 temperature setting 98 degrees.
- This model features 3 different ways of dispenser water, air-pot (pressurized button at top), electronic dispensing (press unlock button then dispense button), or a cup sensor (touchless). Tatung has just electronic dispensing.
- Tatung has magnetic safety power cord (think Macbooks), this one uses a standard three-prong power cord that comes standard with desktop computers. What it means is that if something were to go wrong (say, puppy chewing through the cord), the power cord for this model will be a lot easier/cheaper to replace. Tatung's is proprietary and will be costly.
- 3.2 liters is slightly larger than the standard 3 liter of other models.
There's a steam vent at the very top to let out steam when water boils.
The top is completely removable to make cleaning the inside easier.
Calcium and other water build-up will vary depending on your water quality.
Inside is stainless steel, but it's NOT scratch resistant so be gentle.
It's much more quiet than the Tatung brand it is replacing in my household.
Bottom line: This hot water pot's combination of price and feature is difficult to beat. The only question now is its longevity. It has a 1 year warranty so we'll see if it'll come in use.
One year update. We averaged about 1 pot of water every two days, sometimes per day. The water pot still heats up very quickly and functions completely as intended. We were careful with the following:
- We used only purified water (via faucet filter)
- We never filled it above the "max" line
- We always used the electronic dispensing rather than air-pressure or sensor-based
- We were always careful to not keep dispensing even when water level is too low
One year warranty's passed. This thing had outlasted our Tatung.
-2 year update-
Yesterday, the inside of the top lid broke as the plastic piece that was holding up a stainless steel top finally got warped. You can find a picture as posted by one other user. However, this is probably because we became pretty lazy about making sure to not overfill the hot pot. We still believe that this is a great product and stand by the 5 star rating, given that it lasted almost 3 years for us.
Next to where I found the screw, I can see sediments next to it - not sure if it is rust or what not. I really should be checking the bottom of the water boiler more often. Now I'm wondering if the strange water taste is the water boiler's fault or just normal tap water taste in NYC.
The product was okay for its great price and boiling water function until it started to break apart. Now I have to give it 2 stars.
Cleaning: we have very hard water, so there's quite a calcium build-up already. That was true of my pitcher too, though. Also, the product comes with a big sticker on it that isn't easy to remove. Over all, I'm glad I made this purchase.
This is great! My only criticism is that the huge blue sticker left a residue that still hasn't come off. Only doesn't work if you forget to fill it. I've descaled mine a few times with vinegar and it has lasted really well.
