What's the best Japanese electric water boiler for the price?

Looking for one of those Japanese electric water boilers like this:
https://www.amazon.ca/ZOJI-Zojirushi-Co ... B00R4HKIV8

Which one should I get that's good and carries a good price (doesn't have to be the cheapest one, I want something that will last)

Also, what is a good size for 2 people? 3L? 4L? 5L?

I got the exact same model for $250 after tax from Neohome at Market Village. I've had it for about 6 months. No complaints so far.

Is it too expensive to get a Water Boiler? But with the warmer it can keep water in different temps. This function is nice.

it can take quite the beating lol. really depends on how much hot water you drink. do you want to refill it all the time?


we have one at work that holds just 2 litres and we have to refill it all the time. *thinks someone got tired of it being too small and offloaded it into the staff room.*

Before having the kid, a 4L boiler is more than enough for my wife and I. We could have settle for 3L.

And just because you got a 4L boiler, it doesn't mean you have to fill to the top. The less water in there means the less power needed to keep the water hot, energy saving. Also the price delta is small between different sizes.

Bare in mind the following factors
- how much hot drinks (or water) do use make on a daily basis?
- seasonal usage (summer vs. winter)
- do you have guest coming over? (serving tea and hot drinks)
- time when you make instant noodles
- how often are you away from home. (water older than 3 days, if not refilled, should be dumped)

[use filter water whenever possible]
