Probably a dumb question, but what’s the advantage of using this over a regular kettle? Seems pricey for something that just boils water, but I realize I might be missing something obvious.

Depends on how much hot water you use. I drink a lot of tea and it's nice to have hot water with the push of a button
And not having to wait for water to boil. I think these are a staple in any Chinese household.

it keeps the water hot and it's practical for those who love drinking tea or hot drink on a constant basis.

So is it the kind of thing you leave on all the time so the water is constantly hit? As opposed to running it only when you need it?

Can someone confirm is it a verY special price or just regular sale price. Just thinking should I wait for Black Friday.
Just read the reviews seem like this one has rusting problem.

Yup. You boil it when you first put water in and it keeps it warm until you need to refill again.

You can do a variety of things with it, the machine keeps your water at a desired hot temperature as indicated on the Amazon page 160F, 175F, or 195F.
Or if you want that freshly boiled water you can press REBOIL and it will reboil the water inside it fairly quickly.

One of the things to remember is you have to consistently clean it out, I use vinegar + water to prevent mineral buildup inside. You can also buy packets of solution to clean them as well

I think it's a good price. I spent $50 more on mine (although it does look a bit different from this model) last year during prime day. Below is the link to my model. I'm happy with my purchase and don't regret it one bit.

Feeding it brita filtered water significantly reduces this problem by an order of magnitude

I purchased the 3.0L model in June, the bottom of the boiler started to rust in August. This was my 4th one for the last 12years. I have the Made in Japan version as well, which is this one listed in OPs.
Customer service was horrible and didn't care.

As i'm looking at the amazon review, there is a specific review about someone receiving a rusted bottom? that's pretty much what happened to me.

Now i'm stuck with a $200 machine used for 3 weeks - which the company doesn't want to service.
Buyer beware. This company used to be good.

I have a 4L, and the manual suggested using citric acid. probably no difference from vinegar, but I got some anyway. At the time, it was $14.99.

Yep. This and rice cookers for Asian families. I have 2 of each (1 set with Tiger brand, 1 set of Zorijushi brand) These are expensive but last very long for daily usage. I drink coffee in the morning, tea after dinner, cook rice everyday. :)

Are you 100% sure it’s rust /metal oxidation? If you’re filling it with hard tap water you will get growing brown mineral deposits after every boiling cycle. I’ve since switched to using distilled water and haven’t had any issues with these Japanese units for over 20 years.
