Summary: I purchased 2 of these Zojirushi CD-LCC40 hot water dispensing pots on Feb 16, 2003 and they are both still working great. All I had had to do is replace the top gasket a few years ago (available directly for Zojirushi for very reasonable cost) it was very easy to do. This is a finely built real work-horse machine. Every now in then you will need to clean the lime deposits from the water(depending on your water source). I use 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water, about a qt.
Summary: I've been wanting one of these for a long time now. I finally found a used one here for a great price. It was in great shape and holds enough water to last several days. It has 3 settings: 175/195/208 degrees. It also has the 7 hour timer for 195 or 208 so its not on all night. I keep it on 195 so I can have a fresh cup of coffee or tea any time of the day without waiting for a kettle to boil. It also comes in handy for oatmeal, noodles and soup.
Summary: My Zojirushi arrived completely broken and unusable, they argeed to replace it, then informed me the box arrived to them empty so they will not replace it or return my money unless I can get the postal service to find it! Meanwhile, they still have my money and I have no hotwater pot! I DO NOT recommend this company!!! My current Zojirushi however, works very well and I have no complaints about it, I just needed a second one for my business.
Summary: After two years of daily usage, a few rusty spots developed on the nonstick coating at the bottom of the water boiler. Since the rust eats away the Teflon coating and exposes the layer underneath, it's probably not safe to use anymore, considering Teflon residue, rust and metal from the eroded stainless steel layer can leach into hot boiling water. It's a shame as the unit otherwise works well.
Summary: A neighbor got one for Christmas and I loved hers so much I ordered one for myself. I make 3 pots of tea per day on average. How wonderful to have it ready almost immediately. Usually water will take on a strange flavor when reboiled in a conventional kettle but that doesn't happen with this one. Great tasting tea every time. The 7 hour delay means I can set it up with fresh water at night and it won't boil until early morning, giving me fresh tea each morning.
