Summary: This is a very generous sized water pot. I bought it for the office because everyone is now to lazy to make coffee (no one wants to clean coffee maker). Approximately 6 people use it twice a day until it finally runs out. Water gets hot very fast. And it is HOT. Even at it's lowest setting of 180.
Summary: When I got my first water boiler, I was so pleased, gave it a 5-star review, and bought a second one for my other residence. When the first one was about a year old, I began noticing little black flecks in my cup. Nothing was visible inside, and I have run white vinegar through it.
Summary: I was a bit skeptical when I was deciding whether or not to buy this water boiler. Should I have purchased the much more expensive Zojirushi? Would I experience the black flakes or rusting that other people experienced?
Summary: We bought this Panasonic 2.3 qaurter water boiler in 2011 and after 3 years of use, its inner stainless lid has developed few rusted spots. Since the lid is in direct contact with the water, we have to throw away the boiler.
Summary: I have to say this item worked great for the first year or so. Two days ago, I found black pieces of what appeared to be paint in my mug as I dispensed some water for tea. I opened the pot and found many sheets of black coating substance that's fallen off the wall of the pot floating at the bottom.
Summary: After using this hot pot for six months, I found black debris floating in the hot water. I checked the inside of the pot and found the black coating on the bottom faded and the small filter turned black and rusted. I used a white tissue paper to dry the bottom. The tissue became black immediately.
Pros: This is a replacement for a Zorijushi hot pot. While I miss my Zorijushi, this is pretty comparable. I don't understand the person who complained about the pot being hot. I have my hot water set to 208 and it stays cool to the touch. While it does take a while to boil, my sister who has a new Zor...
Summary: I bought this to make my baby's formula. I have had this product for about 5 months. I boil the water and place the water into a glass water pitcher and let cool to room temp. I then use the room temperature water to mix the formula.
