got some water on top of keypad while filing , died on the spotyou figure it would have some kind of protection from water spilage or steam i opened it up an found the electroincs all exposed should have better protection from moisture infiltration cust service took weeks to even reply my inquiryno repair centers on east coast??
I,ve had three of these (counting repacements)in as many years. After about a year they tend to go into contiuous boils and steam off all the water.
I bought this product before I could find any significant negative reviews about it. While it looks really nice and does the job of heating up the water, the electric dispensing operation doesn't work most of the time. It works well when the item is full, but from 3/4 downwards, it starts to cavitate and is almost as it it is trying to pull liquid from a straw with a hole in it. I would have to repeatedly hit it and let go to get it working right...often 10-15 times. Forget about getting any hot water with the pump when it's down to 1 liter - I find myself tilting the entire unit over just to get any hot water. I might as well have gotten a 2 liter water heater which dispenses properly.
From 2 previous reviews "Absolutely agree with ItsRachel" that does bring my concern on this item. However it is a such attractive appearance and function at this price range. Also I did not find negative feedback on another online store on this item, so I decided to order one for a try.But ItsRachel's experience did help me on the preventive cleaning. I believe those strong odor is from oil residue left from stainless metal process. I wipe the bottle with dry paper tower inside out then wipe with wet vinger paper tower . Boil the whole bottle water overnight, I throw the hot water out next morning.I have been using this water boiler for a week now, I have to say "go buy this one now, you won't regret later". It is in fact a great item at this price.
Overall, this is very attractive to go with the "stainless steel" look. the only complaint is that the 208 degrees setting can't be correct - not really 208, more like 175-180. But this aside, it serves its purpose and is relatively cheaper than most at this capacity. We've had this for a couple of weeks and so far so good.
Ideal for tea lovers or anyone who needs hot-water handy. User friendly, simply add drinking water and unit automatically start to heat water to boiling point. Multi-Temperature function allows you to select and maintain 1 of 5 temperature settings. Features one touch dispensing function, dispensing light, auto re-boil and micro-computerized dry-boil protection. Stainless steel body with black trimmings for a sophisticated look
