Rated 4 out of 5Â by Linka some good, some not so good
I've had a hotshot for about 20 years and use it every day. My older version had features that I hope will be brought back. The old version had an electrical cord almost twice as long as this new one. The new one has to set in front of my spice rack, which is inconvenient because of the short cord. The new one looks nice, but I prefer the smaller, sleeker size of the old one that did not take up as much room. Also, the ridges on the cup holder section is not as easy to clean as the smooth surface of the older one. I would still recommend this because it heat just the right amount of water, is small and not bulky.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by OKKRO Perfect for instant hot water any where, any time
If you like instant coffee or soup this is your pot! It is small and quick and a good value. We found it great for instant hot breakfast cereal as well. It would be great for an apartment or the office or even a second home or beach house. You could even pack it in your suitcase and take it on a vacation or cruise. The possibilities are endless. It heats water quickly so your coffee or tea is only seconds away. Perfect when you really want a cup of tea/coffee at bedtime without making an entire pot.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Yodle Now it leaks
I wrote my 1st review 6 months ago. It is not as good as the 1st Hot Shot. Now after 6 months it has started to leak! The old style never leaked. If a cup is not under the spout
we have a mess on the counter. If we do not throw the leaked water out the freshly heated water goes down 5 to 10 degrees. It is still the only one on the market so we are hostage to a poor design. Transfer whoever is responsible for this new design and bring the 1st/better design back.

Been using this model for over 25 years. Was always available at retail stores but now hard to find. Thankfully Kohl's still carries it on line.
If you never had one, you have to try it. Hot water for drinks, cooking, disolving powders etc as easy as 1, 2,3. Faster than a tea kettle and microwave. Just put in a cup of cold water, depress button to start and a minute or less later dispense into your cup. Received it very quickly. The price was appropriate. Only minor problem was a few scratches on the top lid.
