Summary: This hot water boiler has been with me for 3 years now and still works great. This has been the most handy tool in my college dorm. Ramen, coffee, soup, whatever. It dispenses hot water at a specific temp every time.
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. It's particularly wonderful if you are sick and want to make a cup of hot tea in the middle of the night.
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 direction, it comes off in one piece.
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. In its own, it looks good. It's surprisingly light for its size. It came with an instruction book in great English and great drawings. I just got a glass pitcher with lid.
Absolutely love this. Great for making baby formula

Summary: This is great. We use it daily. It's fantastic for making baby formula. We just put 2/3 hot water & 1/3 cold water & it makes perfectly warm formula every time. (We set our water temp to 140 the lowest setting) No more placing bottles in hot water to warm and wait. We also use it for tea & soups.
Electric dispensing worth it, 3 temp settings a bonus..Cleaning tip..

Summary: We graduated from a Zojirushi "vacuum" pot where you have to press on the top to dispense. At first I thought the electronic dispensing was gimmicky but WOW- it really is worth it. Three temp settings (208F, 180F, 140F) are nice as is the temp readout so you know when the water is almost ready. Like our old one, there is a water level indicator on the outside so you can tell how much is left without opening it up.
Summary: So we use this primarily to mix formula-- it boils, keeps the water warm (a little too warm at 140 degrees, the coolest option, but you can cool the baby bottle full of water further in a cup of cold water in 5 minutes). I like it. Only had it for a few months but definitely makes life more convenient. At $100+ a pop, however, you better really need warm water quick :), which is why this is perfect for parents of babies who use powdered formula!
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 when I noticed that pretty much 90% of the nonstick coating on the bottom of the pot was gone and there was even a rust spot.
