Yes, it does bring water to a rolling boil...BUT....
on May 29, 2016
I've been using it for several weeks now, and it still seems to be working fine, but I must say that I really don't care for its design. For one, the lid is not watertight, so if you're trying to use it while going down the road the water can slosh out, and the narrow base makes it pretty tip prone, which is a very bad combination. (We applied Velcro strips to the bottom of the base, which has worked really nicely in keeping it from turning over.) Next, once you have your water heated to the desired temperature, good luck pouring it without getting it everywhere. The spout has a very poor design that causes the water to dribble down the front of the pitcher and onto whatever's under it. You have to pour it at a certain angle, at a certain pace, to get it to pour cleanly. Try doing that while your husband's driving 75 miles per hour down a bumpy highway. And then there's the power consumption issue. We've found that it doesn't have any problems running off our 12v outlet in our big rig truck, but it blew the fuse when we attempted to use a 3-way outlet splitter. All in all, it gets the job done, but if I had the purchase to do over again, I definitely would not buy it. There have got to be far better versions out there.
