Recent Tasting Notes
I love this boiler, I have the 4 Liter version and it’s absolutely amazing it’s one of the best items I could ever invest in. Keeps water hot all day and has 4 temperature settings including a delay timer that I always use before I go to bed. I’ve used it for more than just tea, I use it for my pour over coffee and ramen noodles to instant potatoes!
I don’t want to be snotty but I have both the Breville and the Zojirushi. Although the Zojirushi was fine for me at first, I still had trouble with over and under steeping. The Breville is soooo much better. I know the Breville is more expensive ($250) but I got it on sale at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $190. I know that they are not completely comparable but the additional money is well worth it to me.
AMAZING. Virtually a glorified kettle, but I can’t imagine life without it. I live out in the country, and have to be up VERY early for work (with a long commute) and I set my Zojirushi before I go to bed. I wake up to water that is already at the perfect temperature, steep my tea (or cook my hot oats) and head out the door.
It sings a little song to let you know the water has reached the correct temperature, which I find endearing.
I have also used it at parties so people could make hot chocolate on demand.
FYI: The sides are magnetic, so mine now has tea-themed magnets all over it!
Love love love this Zojirushi Water Boiler, saves time and the hassle of getting that right temperature. I currently have 2 of them, the first being almost 2 years ago and the second I’ve had for several months. The water comes out clean tasting every time and its very easy to maintain. This is one of the best investments a tea drinker can make.
Honestly, can’t think of a bad thing to say about the digital Zojirushi water dispensers… I actually have a different model, the 5L size in the same color, and I have run 2 of them side by side at 175 and 205 degrees. It just makes it so incredibly easy to infuse tea whenever you want… Highly, highly recommended (although I do agree, these are NOT cheap!)
I received one of these for my birthday this year. I had wanted one for a while, but figured that my electric tea kettle was pretty good and I never really was planning to buy a Zojirushi. Now I don’t know how to live without it. Water is ready to go when I wake up thanks to the timer feature and gone is the constant reheating water and waiting for it to cool to the right temp. This never seemed to be a big inconvenience at the time, but I don’t think I could get by with out the Zojirushi. I even bring it to work with me! The downside to this product, however, is that my tea consumption has gone way up and I have been buying much more tea than in the past!! (Although…on second thought…that really is not a downside!!)
This thing is pretty awesome. It heats up water quite fast and then it sings a little song when it is done. You can have it turn off for up to 10 hours and then it heats right back up automatically. I do wish that it had a longer standby setting than 10 hours (14 or something) but I’m glad it has one at all.
I put only filtered water in this and I think that’s what it says in the manual, not that I’ve read the manual in a really long time. You should rinse it out on occasion and that’s a bit of a pain to do, but this is otherwise a pretty fantastic water heater.And it fits on my desk while hidden by the half wall of my cubicle such that the dreaded standards people can’t see it from the hall and tell me I shouldn’t have it. My coworker’s got a Keurig in plain sight for that.
I don’t have this EXACT one – I have a 5litre black one with the descaling function – and I adore it. I use it constantly and drink way more tea than I did – The only one thing I dont like about it is that it doesn’t dispense properly all the time – almost like its clogged (it’s not) it dispenses the best when it’s between 2.5-4 litres – other than that it dispenses slowly (if that makes sense) I still love it thou and am so glad I bought it!
I’ve had mine for about a year now. I’ve been through 3 kettles prior to this one… no contest Zojirushi. Granted it takes longer to hit up the water, so it isn’t a ‘Now-for-NOW’ thing. I mostly ‘plan’ my tea drinking so I’m more than OK with it. Keeps water up to temperature as long as needed and has a timer setting which I use for the mornings.
To be honest, right now my favorite ‘feature’ is the cleaning. I live in DC and the water is HEAVY. Damages most kettles fairly easily and most say you can clean them but really residue always stays behind and water tastes awful. This one on the other hand hasn’t.
I’ve been eyeing this for a while and I finally got it for my birthday. Although I did not get mine from Mandala (sorry Garrett), I figured I might as well use this thread.
I love this thing. I was REALLY starting to slow down on drinking tea just because I didn’t feel like going downstairs and going through the hassle of heating the water on the stove and all that. This thing is a lifesaver. The hot water is there when I need it, no hassle necessary. There are even different temperature settings perfect for every type of tea (208, 195, 175, and 140). It keeps THREE LITERS of water at the perfect temperature, all day. A simple press of a button and you’re only minutes away from a cup of tea. It’s great for gongfu brewing and also wonderful for western style. Now I can drink tea all day without having to heat water.
I highly recommend that anyone who is serious about their tea should get this device.
Zo and I – as I am affectionately calling him have just had our maiden voyage. Okay I have not made tea with him yet but he got a first boil clean out.
So far I love this thing!
Handy as all get out, cute musical alarm to tell me the water is ready, four heat settings, reboils water SUPER fast for those small repetitive infusions of tea, a nice nifty handle to move from one room to the other with if need be, and small enough to sit on my coffee table to enjoy pu-erh all day long!
I am going to be in heaven with this thing!
