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!
The interior was poorly made. The lid was cracked slightly from the start next to one of the screws, and we didn't notice the flaw until it started to rust long after we've had it, and scrubbing it with a steel wool pad made it visible. This may have been a rare defect, who knows? Regular cleaning with the citric acid (or vinegar) worked OK, but the bottom started pitting in a couple of places, and the top rim of the lining started to rust as well after a number of years.
That's the only negative we found, and although we shopped around for other brands and styles, we decided to go with the same one optimistically hoping that this one will have a more durable interior. What won us over again was the list of features and the flawless functionality and reliability.
Addendum, 8/16/16 Well, evidently the internal lid's rusting was not a fluke, it is doing it with this item also. We bought this in January on 2016, and the lid has a rust spot on it already. This on a stainless steel surface?? We're keeping the water pot, but this is due warning for anyone who plans on buying it. Zojirushi evidently doesn't do enough quality control to avert this kind of problem.
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.
