The pot I had was failing and I ordered this one to replace it. I was not crazy about the color when I ordered it, but after receiving it and putting it on my counter, I am thrilled. It is more of a bronze color than almond. I really like it alot. The pot itself is great. It keeps the water nice and hot and the refill guage is very easy to ready. This pot tops my old one all ways around and I am very very pleased with it. It also had the best reviews of all the pots I researched. I recommend this pot to anyone who is looking for one.
I love this water pot! It is great for my shop where I have herbal teas that customers can sample. I drink herbal tea all day long and this always has hot water ready and is very easy to fill and clean. I am amazed at how well this has performed. I am thinking of buying a second one for my kitchen. This is probably the first thing I have bought in along time that I feel was well wroth the money I paid for it. I have been using this 24-7 for almost a year now.

This was a great product for the price. It holds a lot of water, and I love the different temperature settings on it. This is ideal for use where a lot of volume is appreciated -- less refilling required and serves a lot of people. Only downside of this particular model compared to the other one I have at home is that when it boils initially or reboils, the unit does vibrate a bit, and is a bit noisier than the other one I have when it's boiling. The outer insulation walls seem to be a little thinner. Overall, I was satisfied with the functionality for the price.
So it boils water, so does a $8 kettle. I was amazed that when you set the temp setting the thing just still boils the water to 208 degrees. Whats the point of the temp setting then? I wrongly presumed that when you set the 140 degree button and set it going it would shut off at 140 degrees but it boils anyway at 208 degrees. I thought I had it wrong so I re read the instructions again and sure enough no matter what you set it at it boils water the same. Seems that it boils water, shuts off, allows to cool to desired temp setting and then reboils it to 208 degrees. How crazy is that? If you are trying to make bad water drinkable then I get it but in a kitchen in California? I just want whatever I set the temp at. I look on my order and its not returnable!! I now have a very expensive kettle!!!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not very.
The pot was delivered to me with a dent in the front. However, customer care took care of this promptly and agreed to send a replacement. Have been using the pot for 3 days and noticed it boils water pretty fast even though the water from the first time boiling tasted really funky. It's interesting to see a light comes on when the unlock button is pressed. Also this pot "auto-cools", so when you're away from home, press this button so that the water won't be boiled again and again.
It's my second hot water pot over the past 4 years. And I like this one so much better than my first one, which started leaking months ago.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Pic on the website is for Model SP-5000 compared to Model SP-5016 in the description.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good. Boils water really fast.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Picture needs to be replaced for Model SP-5016.
Very pleased with this large capacity hot water pot. Has been on constantly for well over a year an continues to serve us well. Not the most attractive countertop appliance but certainly the most functional and useful.
I purchased this pot and received it in 3 days. it was packed nicely, however when I opened the box I saw water marks outside the pot. Then when I opened the pot. it is wet and had water inside. the water color are yellowish.. it is so disgusting and disgraceful to receive something like. I contacted overstock for a return.
this is our 3rd hot water pot over 28 yrs. we had XXXXX brand before but they are a lot more $$$. This one even though made in China is stainless steel inside, have multiple settings and holds lots more volume of water.
What language are the labels on the appliance written in?
The screen shot appears to be in an Asian language & I'm afraid it would be too difficult for my aged father to remember...sighyea on Dec 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
