Summary: During a recent visit my daughter saw my thermo pot and said her family could put one to good use. Since it was her birthday, I got on the internet and her gift was on its way to Utah. This is my 4th purchase of a thermo pot - my 1st was in Japan. I never want to be without it! It's perfect for baby bottles - no more heating a bottle in the middle of the night.
Summary: Don't be fooled like I was. I assumed "6 hour timer" meant it would turn off after being on for 6 hours. No, it means you can set it to be off overnight, and have it automatically turn on before you wake up. That's useless for me. I use it in my office, and it's not safe to leave it on overnight. I'd like it to automatically turn off after, say, 10 hours, so it shuts itself off when I go home for the day and forget to unplug it.
Summary: Bought this unit on recommendation from a friend, and absolutely love it. We use this every day to make tea, oatmeal, and when cooking. It's so nice not to have to wait for water to boil. I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs hot water on a regular basis.
Summary: I reside in an an area now undergoing the most severe drought in at least a century. Conserving water is critical. I purchased two of these Thermo Pots and placed one in each bathroom as a way to heat a small amount of water for use in the basin. From a local electrical supply store I purchased a switch to use between the pot's cord and the wall outlet. When I arise, I switch the pot on and turn it to 140 degrees.
Great way to have hot water ready, in small amounts

Summary: This is the perfect size to have warm water ready for making baby formula. This is perfect in the middle of the night - better than a microwave. I did buy this for making formula and drinking tea, but the ideal temperature for both is different. But it's still good for warming up a cup of green tea at not so hot a temperature, since I primarily use it for the formula.
Summary: If you enjoy good coffee or tea the quality and temperature of water is extremely important. This thermo pot provides on demand water at 208, 185, and 140 degrees. It includes electricity saving 6 hour sleep timer, magnetic plug attachement to the pot and mechanised (pumped) water at the touch of a button. This particular model may suit 3 avid tea/coffee drinkers. For larger groups opt for the 3.2 or 4.1 Qt models.
Summary: Electronic worked good but start leaking (connection between the sight tube and the water tank)after 23 months ! Now it is useless. Will not buy another Panasonic water pot. I'm buying a Zojirushi.
Summary: This thermo pot is a must have for any tea drinker. I have had this pot for about an year now and use it almost daily. I have not had any problems with it yet and works great. I like the fact that this model has two temperature settings since a lot of thermo pots dont have this option. Definitely handy when your on the go.
