Product Description

Product Description

Great for cooking soups, noodles, vegetables, and much more. The Hot Pot boils water up to 60% faster than a microwave and it's easy to clean non-stick cooking surface.

Amazon.com

A real time-saver, this 32-ounce Hot Pot boils water 60 percent faster than a microwave. The plain white exterior makes it equally at home in an office or dorm room, and the nonstick interior can be wiped out easily with a soapy sponge (the pot should never be immersed in water). Seven settings, from low to high, allow milk to gently warm or noodle soups to come to a full boil. A one-year warranty covers the pot against defects. --Ann Bieri

I bought one of these close to ten years ago and it's still going strong, though I've taken it on three cross-country trips, countless weekend getaways and even to Guatemala.

Why? First, I don't like using hotel/motel coffee units -- who knows how clean their innards are? This holds more liquid, is easy to clean, and I know where it's been!

Second, it's useful for more than just heating water. I once took my daughter to a nice Disneyland hotel for four days, and did all our cooking in this little pot because food was so pricey. I heated soup, ramen, veggies, all kinds of things... and we actually ate well (though simply) the whole time.

Other reviewers have noted that it doesn't have auto shut-off. That's a good point, and it's a bit of a pain, particularly when you're as forgetful as I am. But the water always boils loudly enough that I hear it. Could be a problem in everyday use if you are wandering from room to room; fine for a motel.

The flip side is being able to adjust the heat level, which I don't think you could do if the unit shut off automatically. I've found that VERY handy for things that need a gentle heat, and use that feature a lot.

Power cord is frustratingly short, but necessarily so for safety reasons.

Naturally, anything that holds 32 oz. of water is a little bulky, but when I put it in my suitcase I just jam socks and breakables into it, so it ends up taking less room than you'd think. You can snap the top off, which is also a help when packing it. It's fairly lightweight.

The reason I'm back at this page is that my daughter just went to college and took the pot with her. I need a replacement for my travels without her! I was amazed to find the same pot is still being sold after all these years. That's probably a good sign about its quality in an era when things get redesigned every year.

At this price, if it lasted a year or two of steady use, I think I'd still be happy.

At my workplace we have no hot water dispenser. Before this, I was resorting to microwaving a mug of hot water. I was recommended this device as a tool for shaving, but I found that it got the water a little too hot for my shaving needs. I took it into work and have been loving the thing ever since. In the time it takes me to clean a spoon in the sink and get yogurt out of the fridge, the water is hot enough for tea. The exterior stays quite cool and can be picked up and touched immediately even when the water inside is scalding hot. I've even boiled milk, water, and black tea together in this unit without problems. Cleans quite easily.

What a well-spent $12 this has turned out to be.

I love this little pot! It boils water and cooks everything very fast!! I have one at home and one for my travels. This little hot pot is terrific when one is away from home and has no kitchen. The non-stick bottom makes this pot a breeze to clean up! I have dietary restrictions and can not go out and "grab a bite" like most other people, when I am not near my house. I especially recommend this pot to anyone who may suffer the same problem as me. I would be lost without this pot, when I need to be away from home. :-)

Having one through all the reviews, I'd discovered why I feel so many people have given this hot pot 5 star reviews. Most of then are years old, stemming from 2003, etc. The reviews that are more recent are from people saying that they've had their Rival pot for years.

It appears that many of the design problems are in more recent models (from the past few years) - the rust, the plastic taste, the leaking....

It is entirely possible that this Rival pot used to be of amazing quality and incredibly durable, but you know what they say... Some things ain't what they used to be.

I bought two of these for 8.99 on amazon and generally, they are OK. I drink a lot of green tea, and by reading the description, I thought it kept your water at a desired temp/setting. It seems it keeps hot by cycling on and off, which is ok, but your water may not be the same temperature, which is important if you are making green tea. Also, I left some water in it and the next day there was a large rust stain. It easily washed off, but I didnt particularly like the idea of drinking rusty water. The high setting really boils hard, and the low setting keeps the water warm. Generally, I got my 9 dollars worth

I've been using one of these for several years now, so long in fact that the cover eroded away and the handle broke. Finally, I took the time to order a new one and pitched the old one away.

The new hot pot was in use for 2 months before it began leaking. A quick disassembly shows that the metal heating element is simply pressed on the plastic bottom and if not assembled properly will eventually leak.

I won't take a chance on purchasing another one - time to try a competitors product and see if their quality control does a better job than Rival's.

I've had two of these Rival hot pots. Both worked for a couple of months and then started leaking on my counters.

I wouldn't recommend them.

I had owned a Rival Hot Pot Express for over 7 years and the only problem I had with it was mineral build-up on the heating plate and then over time the plastic on the inside got a little scratched up and was getting difficult to clean. So I decided to buy a new one. I saw the reviews referring to a rust issue but decided to ignore it since I had one of these units for over 7 years and never had a rust problem. Big mistake. I've had the unit now for only about 2 to 3 weeks and this morning noticed rust forming around the edges of the heating element just as the other reviewers noted. I had even been careful not to leave water in it overnight. Do not waste your money.
