Your Safety is Very Important
Every Megahome distiller is UL listed (Underwriters Laboratory) and approved. Each unit is built and individually tested to ensure your safety. For over twenty years, Megahome has specialized in manufacturing only water distillers.
How Distillation Works
Simply pour your water into the Megahome distiller and press the reset button, your distiller then brings the water to 212 degrees (boiling point) which kills bacteria, parasites etc. As steam rises, it leaves behind the impurities and enters the stainless steel cooling coils where the steam is cooled and recondensed into pure water. Your distiller will automatically shut-off when it finishes distilling.

What makes Meghome distillers different from the competition?
- Megahome Corp. has been manufacturing it's countertop water distillers since 1992. It is the only product they manufacture. Needless to say 27 years of producing and refining a product, equals a great company and a great product.
- Megahome Corp. has a personal relationship with all of it's parts suppliers. Megahome builds, inspects, and tests every distiller by hand. This ensures consistent quality for each unit. That means consumers can count on getting a top quality unit every time.
- Megahome Corp. conforms to the needs of it's customers. Megahome distillers pass all safety standards for the countries and voltage they are destined for. In the United states, UL (Underwriters Laboratory) is the top safety standard for all appliances and Megahome passes UL standards year after year. Unfortunately most of the distillers available on the market today do not pass UL or other US safety standards, and although inexpensive, are simply not safe. In addition to passing safety standards, Megahome Corp listens to the voice of it's customers and continuously makes adjustments to make the most reliable and loved countertop distillers.
- Megahome distillers have been carefully constructed to produce the purest steam distilled water. Did you know that all distilled water is not the same? The process of distilling is of course simple and straight forward, bring the water to a boil and then capture and collect the steam that rises. However, distilling at the right temperature, with the correct size condensing coils, and the proper cooling are all essential to producing pure distilled water. Many cheaper distillers boast a faster distilling time but as a result produce an inferior distilled water with more impurities being pushed through the machine because they are boiling too hard and not properly condensing the steam. If you are using your distilled water in equipment it is especially important to make sure that you are in fact producing pure water.

P.S.- be careful with the glass jug provided- it's thin and fragile...
I have attached two pictures. The first is after one day of use. The brown oily liquid left smelled like chemicals and toxic junk. The second picture is after a week or two of use. You can see how much crap builds up in there. That junk ends up in us when we drink water regularly.
Bottom line: I've gotten solid value out of this unit.
Some have said the pitcher spills water when poured. Either they are pouring it wrong or the company has re-designed the pitcher because I have not spilled a drop and think the pitcher is great.
Many have reported yucky stuff left behind that is slimy, stinky and so on. YES!! This happens every time (I just wipe it out with a damp cloth). For an experiment I ran a gallon of newly distilled water through the distiller again and I am so happy to report that nothing was left behind :) Next I plan on trying a gallon of distilled water from WM.
I am thankful for this machine and hope it lasts me a while. I will update any changes.
Edited on May 24, 2014
The machine is still running strong however there is one quirk that has surfaced ... for some reason once in a while the water will leak out where the spout is connected to the lid. I have not figured out why this happens and it seems to be random. I just keep a towel under the machine 'just in case'. It will go for several weeks without leaking and then all of the sudden it will leak for a few cycles and then stop again. When it does leak it's usually not that much (a few tablespoons to a fourth cup maybe?), however a few times it has leaked 1-2 cups!! But, like I said, it suddenly stops and there are no issues.
I'm not sure if this is bad or not but the stainless-steel underside of the top section is no longer nice and shiny but dark orange/brown in color. This could be because of our really bad water here where I live? (SW MO) Has anyone else had this issue? I know that when I used to filter my water it first went through a 'micro sponge' of some sort that was white ... but would turn burnt orange if I did not clean it off regularly. It might be totally unrelated but then maybe not.
As I stated in my original post, I have no problem with the container leaking when I pour out the water ... UNLESS I pour too fast. So, my advice to those who have issues with the pitcher leaking: try slowing down.
When my cleaning solution that came with it ran out I tried to find the exact brand online to reorder however I could not so I just ordered another brand. The new brand does NOT do as good of a job as whatever brand came with the machine (the bottle had no brand name on it). If you know of a good brand to order, please let me know as I am not happy with the one I got.
I am still very thankful for the purchase and will update again when I feel the need.
It is still working HOWEVER about half the time it makes and obnoxious, high pitched, squealing sound for a few minutes when you first turn it on. This, I assume, is the fan motor struggling to go properly. I tried using a can of compressed air to force out the dust, and while a lot of dust did come out it had no effect on the squeal. I am way past the year warranty so if anyone has ideas on what to do, let me know!
Other than that, it does work and we still run about 2 to 3 gallons through it each 24-hour period.
The obnoxious, high pitched, squealing sound: I finally took the top apart and cleaned it off really good, however this did NOT work. My son took the motor apart, cleaned all the inner parts, lubricated them with sewing machine oil, and WOW!! it runs like new again. SO HAPPY.
I'm including a photo of the discoloration on the underside of the lid - the side that is stainless steel. It just gets darker and darker, but I assume this does not matter??
TO CLEAN IT: No need to buy the yucky chemicals!!! An elderly friend of mine gave me some advice a few months ago ... just fill the tank up 3 or so inches with white vinegar and run it through like water. Once done, I scrape off the nasty and run it through one more time. This works SO MUCH BETTER than the chemical stuff!! After I am done cleaning it out I fill the tank with an inch or two of water and run that through so vinegar is rinsed out of the pipe.
UPDATE January 2017
My son has cleaned it about 4 times since my last update, but it finally broke and I'm not sure why. We have had thoughts of taking it to a small engine repair man and seeing if he can fix it, but so far we haven't because we are just too busy right now. Once things settle down a little I might take it to see if the man can fix it.

Cleaning this with the solution that comes with it is easy peasy. I generally do a deep clean once every 3-4wks but i wash it out before every use and just scrub the inside with the soft side of a sponge. It does take around 6-7hrs to distill an entire 4L water. Therefore, i usually do an overnight distillation so that i don't have to wait an eternity for it to distill during the day and it auto shuts itself once it runs out of water.
It does make a sound during the process but not so loud that it will distract or annoy you. My kitchen is literally in my living room if it wasn't for the kitchen door and yet, the sound does not bother me at all. There is a massive difference when it comes to the taste, it's impossible to not notice. A friend of mine was very skeptical when i bought this but 1 taste soon turned her into a believer.
Now, i carry my own drinking water with me.
Update Nov 2019
I have been using this exactly a year and although i can't say for sure if there is any difference in my life due to this but i can say for sure that my taste bud has changed greatly. Tap water tastes like filth now(not literally) but even "filtered" water does not compare to this. I'd rather drink fizzy drink than tap water whenever i don't have distilled water on me. I only just changed my first filter late september when i started to notice a slight, not so significant taste difference. My TDI meter at the time read 35 which isnt huge compared to my tap water reading of nearly 350 but why be stingy with my tongue, right? So, went ahead and changed it. I will be getting this for my mother's birthday present next month.
