Zojirushi CD-WBC30 Micom Electric water boiler

found at Amazon 105$ free ship no tax. wee. 4L model is $120. the 4L vacuum is $150

My 4.5year old Tiger got so full of scale deposits it was making the water cloudy, I couldn’t scrape it off and descalers didn’t work anymore. Oh well πŸ™‚ had to replace it, with what else… but a Zoji !!


^LCD shows current water temp ^nice water level window

btw the iPhone WordPress app is buggy, had to continue on the computer.

Pondered greatly what i should get, same Tiger i had before? Panasonic? or a Zoji?
finally showed photo line-up to wife lady and she picked out the Zoji πŸ˜€

Chose this model because not that big in size (i can open the lid under the cabinet) + right price spot for me

Zojirushi Comparison Table (PDF)

Zojirushi CD-WBC30 Manual (PDF)

Noticeable points so far:

(-) feet are more slippery than the Tiger

(-) 3L room temp water into already warm Zoji takes 30 minutes to boil to 212F
(-) less Watts 700 vs 980

(+) nice LCD display shows the current water/temp inside the pot

(+) more quiet on boiling and on dispensing water, the pump seems muffled ?rubber mounted?

(+) water out the spout is 209F !, and much faster !

(+) better, smart water level window

(+) slightly nicer buttons

And now for some water dispensing action on the iPhone cam !

i must reiterate the following because 2 weeks without a water boiler/thermopot had me going nuts !!!

Why an electric water dispenser?
– no need to clean the pot every time i brew a tea. (except at monthly intervals to remove salt deposits)
– don’t have to run to the kitchen to turn off the a n n o y i n g loud whistle some pots make.
– no messing with pots and pans, fires or hot plates on off, clean wash etc.
water is always hot (you need to leave it plugged in) = NO WAIT !!!

GOOD. NOW I CAN DRINK TEA AGAIN πŸ˜›
