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.

The color was not as important as the price for me, but I feel it blends fairly well with my other appliances. It probably helps that I have no consistent color theme in my kitchen though. I've attached photos to show the color differences next to our mostly brown counter, our almond builder wall paint, our stainless steel and black toaster, and our black coffee maker. The Zojirushi water boiler is somewhere in between gray and brown.
Update: The water boiler is still going strong. I recently discovered that I am able to use the slow dispense option to make pour over coffee and have a cup at any time throughout the day. Love the convenience!
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.
The only thing that can be annoying is that if you want to go from 175 to 195 degrees, or from just added cold water to 175 degrees, the machine will reboil the water, bringing the temp up to 212, and then cooling back down to the target temp. I don't know why they didn't make it so that it just heats up the the target temp without reboiling. It's annoying, but you can trick the machine by unplugging it to stop the reboil process. For example, if you're heating from 175 to 195, just pull the plug a few seconds after it gets to 190, and when you plug it back in the temp should be 195.
