Tiger Corporation PDU-A50U Electric Water Heater
Sleek black and stainless steel design
This new electric water heater is convenient to supply continuous amount of hot steaming water in an everyday setting. Unlike the water you boil on a stove, after the water is boiled, it will keep it at an optimum temperature as you wish for a long period of time. This will come in handy to provide you hot water in a safe and timely manner. The elegantly designed electric water heater and the steel black finish evenly blends with any modern-age kitchen theme.
Lever type dispense button
A new soft touch lever makes it easy to dispense hot liquid at the push of a button. This light one push comes in handy to dispensing hot water in an easy and safe way without worrying about the possibility of spilling or splattering. If the dispense button is not activated within 10 seconds, it will automatically lock the dispenser.
The upper lid can be detached with a hook at the back of the lid for easy cleaning and trouble-free working. The disassembling of the upper lid will make cleaning a lot easier to wipe off water stains. Other cleaning highlights include a non-stick coated inner pot and removable power cord for safety and convenience.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This is about the only concern so far and judging by other reviews on this and other brands, this appears to be common. I guess frequent (at least once every week or so) cleaning would be wise.
Thinds I like:
I like that is has reasonable heating time and that there is a timer that tells you how long it's gonna take till ready! It doesn't have the cute music the Zojirushi has but that's ok. I like the water saving feature because it makes the 208F setting drop down to 203F which is better for coffee. Apart from that, yeah, all the 'standard', common, stuff is great; the swivel bottom, the magnetic plug, declorination, easy to fill, easy to read how much is left, etc.
Things I wish could be better:
Even though the 'shiny' and large dispense button is nice and easier to use, I don't like that the steam can be bothersome on your hand/fingers if you are dispensing a lot of water. The Zojirushi did not have this problem becuase it's higher up on the panel. Additionally, this one doesn't have a timer function. So with the Zojirushi, I could set it to 8 hours when we went to sleep and it would truly "energy save" and self boil to temp by the time we got up. These are not that big-a-deal for us but they are worth mentioning.
Other things to consider if you are looking into the Tiger:
It looks like the Zojirushi's strategy to hold larger quantities is to go vertical, the Tiger goes horizontal. So if you have height limitations, this will probably be a better bet. As for me, I had to come up with a little base to be able to put my french press under the Tiger. Finally, the Tiger doens't have the 'cafe drip' mode which basically just dispenses a little slower.

I do find the Tiger boiler to be similar in major features that most would use such as various temperature modes, LCD display, non stick interior, sleek exterior. We do use the water boiler daily for tea, coffee, noodles, etc... and it was easy to switch to the Tiger brand. Here are a few features that drew us to this water boiler:
-Large dispense lever that is clearly coloured and marked. I found this was easier to use that the all same looking button style on the Zojirushi.
-detachable lid which makes cleaning easier, most of my Zojirushi models did not have this option
-slightly less cost over the other brand
So far, so good. Great design, have all the major features I need for daily use. Great product so far!
