Zojirushi Micom water boiler and warmer has a micro computerized temperature control and electric dispensing system. It has four keep warm temperature settings: 140, 175, 195, 208 degree F. This unit displays actual water temperature at all times. It is also has an energy saving timer function (6 - 10 hours) and automatically turns on the boiler at a later time to save electricity. Steam-save function automatically lowers the power just before boiling to reduce the amount of stem emitting from the steam vent. Cafe' drip dispensing mode decreases the amount of water dispensed to 60% of the normal setting, making it suitable for brewing cafe' drip coffee.

Rust on stainless part within 2 months of use is absolutely a defect of product. Zojirushi just refused to cover this with warranty and their customer service is NOT helpful at all.
Considering all the positive reviews, we paid high price for expectation of high quality product. We definitely will NOT recommend any friend to buy this product and also stay away from Zojirushi products considering their non-existing customer service.
If the water being dispensed slows down, you can descale with vinegar easily.
Zojirushi is a trusted brand and I highly recommend this unit.
The swivel base is great and lets you turn and pull the thing out to easily refill it. It plays a lovely song when the water is warmed up so you know its time for tea. Maybe its just the water at our house, but I have never had a problem with scaling or corrosion or any of that.
Zojirushi makes really nice water heaters and they have the awesome elephant logo so you know its good.
- you can set the temperature to 1 of 4 preprogammed temps but no matter which you select, it will always initially heat up the water to the highest temp. That seems like a waste of energy.
- plays a melody when the water has reached your desire temp. I find this melody loud and unnecessarily long. Would prefer just a couple of quick beeps. Also plays a melody when you set the timer.
- consider the size you need. Here's a case where bigger isn't better. I bought the 4 liter which ended up being more than I really need. 2 liters = about 8 cups. That's about as much as I can drink in a day. I imagine the more water that's in it means the more energy required to keep heat it up and keep it warm, so it's wasteful to fill it with 4 liters if you only drink half that. I have a shelf that I keep it on and even though width and depth are about the same regardless the size, the height is different, and the shorter (smaller) models would have worked better on my shelf.
Overall a very convenient gadget to have.
EDIT 7/5/16 I have used it for pour-over, using the "slow" feature, and that worked just as well. I normally use either a 12-ounce French press, a single-serve Melitta pour-over cone, or an Adagio IngenuiTEA, and all three of those fit under the spout fine. I just recently purchased a larger, rounder teapot, and it can take a little fiddling for it to fit.
When I first took the warmer out of the box, I looked at the owner's manual that comes with the device and was surprised how much reading was involved. I quickly read the booklet and was a little confused by some of the instructions, but I figured that once I started playing with it, I would understand it better. I did. I also have to admit that after reading the booklet, I wondered why did I buy this thing, it's just a very expensive water heater, how lazy can I be.
Well, let me tell you, I no longer feel that way. This thing has won me over. This is how I use it. The night before, I set the timer to warm my water to 208 degrees and be ready when I get up. I have 1-2 cups of tea that requires that temperature of water and then if I feel that I am going to have green tea during the day, I set the temperature to 175. After we get through the afternoon, I reset the warmer back to 208 so that it is ready for me for the evening and my night time teas. By that time, the water is very low or gone so I dump out what is left and fill it back up and set the timer around 11 p.m. for the next morning.
Did I say that I just love this warmer? With winter and cool weather coming, this thing is going to get a lot of use.
