When I purchased this, I was looking for the kind they have in hotels where you put the water in and it automatically is dispensed into the cup. This heats the water and then you have to press the dispense bar. It's not a big deal, but I would have preferred to spend a little more to get the one the hotels use. I see this as having a limited life cycle, because the dispense bar will probably break at some point in time from normal wear and tear. This does the job and does save me from boiling water for tea. With the discount I had, it was definitely an economical choice for me.
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.

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.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by KathiH Would not recommend.
I needed a 2nd hot shot for my kitchen. I have an older white model that I still use in the camper and it still working great after several years. The plastic is extremely flimsy with this model. Also the lever now located on the back of the hot shot is hard to press to start the brewing process. Something in the mechanism was defective because after using approximately 30 times it broke. I threw it out. Very disappointed with this model.
