Nice, but cast aside because water dispensed tasted awful and smell weird.

Product looked nice, but water dispensed was TERRIBLE - smelling awful and tasted strange. Washed umpteen times, still of no use, it is sitting in the cupboard not being utilised. Most disappointed, don't know what the manufacturer used. Thus 2 stars, just for a good looking item,

Great for a disabled person but water tastes funny.

Bought it for my wife who is disabled so she can make herself a hot drink. Easy to use, just simply press one button. However despite plenty of use I still get a funny taste to the water, this why I have given it 3 stars.


Have purchased several items from AO. Service and delivery is superb. This hot water dispenser is a great concept. It's easy to set up and use. There is one major gripe however. The water doesn't dispense quite hot enough. If you're making a cup of tea, the tea bag doesn't diffuse very well in the (not boiling) water. Everything else about the dispenser is great. You can adjust the volume to suit the size of cup and it's quite easy to refill, either putting the dispenser under the tap or using a jug. All in all it's okay. Had I known that the water dispensed at this temperature I probably would not have made the purchase.

Does what it says on the box......... and its hot not like the older modles

Original is best

Great product, saves lifting a heavy kettle. Awkward to fill up as lid flips up blocking access. Water could be hotter but overall this model is better than the newer one.

Great product

Really pleased with this product. Initially the water tasted a little chalky as we live in a hard water area but this wore off after the first day. Makes a good hot cup of tea unlike the earlier versions of these products.

A solution...........

The item is fine, this is my 3rd, which does make you question its longevity, however as a disabled person i love this as i do not have to try and lift a heavy kettle to make a coffee!! The temperature of the drink is perfect, and the fact you can easily change the cup size is a major advantage, especially when you need that caffeine....

Great purchase

Very nice looking, efficient and good value for money. Easy to operate, good size for cup options. They only slight negative is it can splutter a bit at the end when it stops but this would not put me off purchasing again.
