I ordered this since it came with a ceramic bowl. I couldn't understand why you would get the other Hot Shots when you can get this one for the same price and with a ceramic bowl.
This model is shorter than the other standard ones. You will NOT be able to get a standard 16 oz mug under it without hitting the drain spout. If you look at the description this one says it's
7.8 x 5.8 x 9.8 inches. The other ones that show a mug under it is:12 x 5 x 4 inches...definitely taller.
You can get a 16 oz mug under it but it will have to be a squatted one. Personally I think Sunbeam was stupid for making two different types. This is why I give it only two stars since it should have been in the description.
Update - 1/10/13 - I originally gave this two stars but have since changed it to three. I still stand by my original review about the height for 16 oz. mugs, BUT I didn't think it fair to judge the unit solely based on that. The unit itself works very well. It brings the water to an almost boil within a minute. Very fast.
PROS: Heats water faster than a microwave. Priced right for its value. No cleaning needed (because you're only boiling water with it); takes up minimal space. The ceramic bowl is a nice addition, too.
CONS: The space between the water dispenser and the platform is not much more than the length of a standard coffee cup. If you have a big coffee mug (like me), you won't be able to fit it under the dispenser. It's odd that the space is not adjustable (or that the unit isn't just a little taller to accommodate travel mugs). The only other con, if you consider it one, is that it heats only water. You can't (or shouldn't) heat milk, soup, spaghetti-o's, etc.
Overall, if you want something that doesn't take up much space and helps make a quick cup of tea or anything that just requires boiling water (dehydrated soup, instant coffee, cocoa, oatmeal, etc.)... this is a great product. It lasts years and does exactly what it says it does, just like any product should.
It is small enough to fit well into a larger luggage bag. It will even fit fine in a carry on if you do not have too much to put in the bag. The ceramic bowl is attractive, useful, and sturdy. I even wrapped it and carried it on the trip with me.
The dispenser worked like a charm. I used it to make tea, cup a soups, oatmeal, and to rehydrate dehydrated camping food (chili, etc). I ate well and for a fraction of the cost.
This heater heats so quickly that I have started using it at home instead of the microwave for oatmeal, tea, and other things. Things come out less dry than when I use a microwave.
My only complaint is that the cups have to be pretty short for making hot drinks. I usually drink out of a 16 ounce tall mug, but even my 12 ounce and shorter 16 ounce mugs will not fit under the drip. Only my 10 ounce mug is short enough to fit under the drip. This is frustrating, especially since the heating capacity is 16 ounces. Other than that, though, this is a great and well priced product.
The device turned out to have a poorly constructed dispensing mechanism. The point of contact between the lever for dispensing the hot water and the hot water container broke off, probably because of a combination of pressure from using it and from the heat. This should have been anticipated by the designers of this product, because the functionality of the lever depended entirely on a couple of small bits of porous plastic. Now that the lever is broken, there is no way to use the machine, because there is no way to safely dispense the hot water. I am throwing it out.
This is a small top-loading water heater that holds about 16 oz of water, heats it up in less than a minute, turns itself off, and (manually) dispenses it into a cup or bowl underneath. It's very simple, very functional, very fast, and inexpensive. I am very pleased with it, because it allows me to make tea for myself or for myself and a guest nearly instantaneously. What this doesn't do: it doesn't store a lot of water, dispense automatically, or brew the tea (you shouldn't put anything but water in it). In summary, a most excellent water-boiling device for making tea or cereal, but you need to be prepared to pour water in it every time you use it.
