[Amazon.ca] Hot? Zojirushi 3L CD-LFC30 Panorama Window Micom Water Boiler and Warmer - $165.84

Got this on my Camel x 3 watch list and noticed this just dropped to the all time low of $165.84. I paid $205 for the 4L version and I love it. Also I think this is the only water boiler they sell here that is Made in Japan.

If you are looking into this I strongly recommend spending a bit more and going for a vacuum insulated model like the one in the post above. Will save you a bit of electricity, and will save you from having to descale often.

I always want to buy a boiler, but I was told that reboiling the water is harmful and it is not easy to clean (such as the spout area).

I actually find it pretty easy to clean. If I use tap water, every 3-4 months, I just dissolve some citric acid (you can buy large bags on Amazon), and let it soak overnight, and all the scale comes off quite easily.

I now pour in Brita water since, as silly as this might sound, teas taste slightly better. Haven't had to descale yet (been doing this for 8 months).

I think if you use it regularly and need to refill it often you should be fine. If you end up leaving the same water in there for many days then I guess its possible it would not be good for you but I dont think there are any scientific studies yet that validate that.

not really. I have these for years, and it is relatively easy to maintain and clean.

My family goes through a pot every day, tea drinking family. Whenever you refill, dump out the water. every month, clean it with descale packatte

What’s wrong with just a kettle if it needs to reboil ?

Get the vacuum insulated one linked earlier in the thread for a longer heat retention period (you can set temp to "Vacuum" to avoid a reboil)

Had it since last time posed on RFD, its bangin'!

Thanks! This feature would be exactly what I needed! Will wait for that model to be on sale then.

I'm not a specialist on this subject, so I won't support or refute the claim. However, I will point out that the article only cites one "expert", does not tell us what credentials this "expert" has and the explanations given do not appear to all make sense from a basic chemistry standpoint. For instance, the amount of calcium won't magically increase from being boiled. At most, due to a tiny amount of evaporation of water, the concentration will go up very slightly.

Here's a post from McGill University regarding this matter: https://www.mcgill.ca/oss/article/contr ... fee-or-tea

My family does the same thing with Brita water to avoid the build up and it works like a charm.

Is this a $20 kettle for millennials or am I missing something?

If you're worried about reboiling just use the quick temp feature. That what I do. I never reboil

This can keep your water hot throughout the whole day without needing to reboil on demand using extra time and energy.
Also since it can keep your water around 80C, it’s better as it won’t burn the tea leaves as when using freshly boiled water.

Essentially it let’s you have sub boiling hot water on demand.
