Must have product

Seung K., Newegg
9 August 2010
  • Summary: Make sure you use filtered water, otherwise it'll clog the hose after years of use. De-scaling does not help in this case.
  • Pros: Overall very nice unit. I used to have the old style pump dispensing pot but this automatic is x100 better. Whenever you need hot water just press a button and bingo. Takes little time to boil too, with 3 different temperature settings. Love this thing.
  • Cons: The power plug that connects to the unit has a magnet, and has very weak contact. As long as you don't touch it, it's perfectly fine but if you kinda move it around it will come off, especially with the swivel base.

Another Great Zojirushi Product

Sean B., Newegg
4 April 2010
  • Summary: I paid full retail at a local Japanese goods store. I got the plain JSC30, not the flowers design. I tested the timer and set it to turn on 10 hours later, for hot water when I got home from work. That function works. I just have to acquire the habit of setting it!
  • Pros: Works as advertised. Nice surprise: it's pretty quiet while it boils the water. I leave mine set at 195 degrees F. I used a thermometer and checked - as soon as the 195 degree water fills a room-temperature ceramic mug, it drops to 180 degrees, perfect for my tea. I also like the magnetically att...
  • Cons: Manufacturer recommends taking off lid while draining pot. Lining the lid up to reattach is a bit awkward.

Great

  • Summary: Enough water for 1-2 people in a day. If you have more people using the pot, get one with a larger capacity
  • Pros: Delivers exactly what it promises. 3 temperature setting good so I can drink immediately as opposed to scorching my tongue.
  • Cons: Graphics on side are a bit gaudy.

I love my Zojirushi!

K. G. Anderson, Amazon
8 July 2009
  • Summary: I'm a serious tea drinker, and have a home office. Before getting the Zojirushi hot water heater and dispenser, I was constantly turning on the kettle, walking away, forgetting it, coming back and finding the water had cooled down...and on and on. Now there's hot water whenever I need it.

Color deception

TecumsehASL, Amazon
22 June 2009
  • Summary: I chose it over many other Zojirushi dispensing pots, because I thought it fits the color of my kitchen, but the picture doesn't do it justice. It's actually darker. I'm disappointed with the color, but I'm happy to have it, just because it's a good brand and has dechlorinated feature.

funky timer

fred y., Newegg
12 June 2009
  • Pros: solid machine for dispensing hot water. I'm trying to reduce my softdrink intake so instead I'm making tea.
  • Cons: the timer works only at specific time intervals like starting at 10 hrs from when you set it. Much better would be like an alarm clock where you can set it for specific times, say have hot water ready at 6:30 but it is not.

Relpaced my old air pot that died

Hoody, Amazon
3 June 2009
  • Summary: As advertised, an electric appliance that keeps water hot. Its not too dark as someone else said, in fact its pretty light in color, which looks more silver than Herb. Also someone said the sticker was hard to remove, not, all it took was to lift a corner and hold while pulling in a steady...

An excellent water heater.

andiesenji, Amazon
22 May 2009
  • Summary: This is my fourth Zojirushi water heater, the first being purchased quite a few years ago and broken when I knocked it off a shelf and it fell down a flight of stairs. The second did heavy duty work for several years and was replaced last year with a 3-liter CD-WBC30 which is working just fine but I...

Unusable after 2 years

doughypear, Amazon
17 May 2009
  • Summary: We purchased this unit in a Chinese Grocery store for about $120 in early 2010, and about 4 days ago, I noticed some flakes in my mug of water. I thought it was just shoddy dishwashing, but for some reason that made me pay more attention when I emptied the pot to refill it, and imagine my surprise...
