I finally decided I would get it and try it out; and I must say I'm pretty happy with it. In a previous review, the user complained about it being too slow. It is a little slow, but it is definitely manageable. I do wish it could be faster, but it takes maybe 20 secs. to fill a large glass; a small price to pay for filtered water, that is taking up counter-space, as opposed to fridge space.
I'm very happy with it, and I cycle through enough water, it doesn't get stagnant, so that isn't really a huge concern of mine.
UPDATE: Well, on a sad note, after about a week of use, the cold water spout stopped working. We are going to send it back to the place of purchase, and get a new one. I'm a little worried about the durability of this product; and I'm hoping the new one will work flawlessly. If this next one craps out on me, I will exchange it for the Cuisinart griddle or something else.
To begin with, the directions aren't very clear. I attempted to pre-soak the filter as directed, but it didn't seem to do anything. Also, the initial filtering of the water took a lot longer than the instructions stated. I believe they said it would take about 15 minutes for the water to filter through into the dispenser. Mine took almost an hour. Who knows, maybe I didn't soak the filter properly. But that was just the beginning of my problems.
Once the water was filtered, I switched the device on. It was a lot louder than I thought it would be. Actually, I wasn't expecting much noise at all. The device does quiet down a bit, after it has reached its target temperatures for the hot and cold. But after you dispense some water, it kicks back in again. If you have a large kitchen, the sound of the device might not be a problem for you. After all, it's a small price to pay for instantly available hot and cold filtered water. OK, "instantly" might not be the best choice of words.
To dispense water from either side, you have to press in and hold the appropriate button. The water comes out in a steady stream, but a very thin stream. Which means, it takes a long time just to fill up one cup. Even as a single man, this kind of wait was unbearable. I can't imagine someone with a family using this device. In any case, if you do end up purchasing this device, I wish you luck. I ended up returning mine just a few days after I purchased it.
