Tiger PDU-A30U-K

Powerful and Reliable Water Warmer

Though, in general, water boilers are rather simple appliances based pretty much the same operation principle, they are not similar. What do you expect from a good water boiler? Basically, it’s quick water heating, consistent performance, and long service life - the parameters, defined by the quality of the heating element and the unit construction. If reliability and high performance are your major priorities, the Tiger water boiler will definitely come down your alley. Right off the bat, the model provides all the functions and safety features typical of this kind of units, including:

  • Variable temperature settings, keep warm and quick reboil function to get just the right water temperature for your needs;
  • Easy-to-read LCD display and intuitive controls;
  • Dechlorination function to get rid of excess chlorine and mud odors in boiled water;
  • Panorama window to detect how much water is left;
  • Swivel base for the convenience of use;
  • Magnetic plug, dispenser lock, and an automatic switch-off option for safety.

All of this comes packed in a strong and durable stainless steel body with a non-stick steel interior for no-hassle maintenance.

Hence, basic functionality and options aside, let’s look into details that make the Tiger thermo pot shine. At a glance, you will notice that this water boiler is somewhat different in profile from its rivals. While most large-capacity units are rather high, this model is lower and wider. So, it will be a better bet for those who have some height limitations between the countertop and hanging kitchen cabinets. The next thing that won’t go amiss is the power of the heating element that makes as many as 928 watts to get piping hot water almost in an instant, even if the water tank is filled to the maximum. What’s more, pre-selected sleep timer settings (6 and 9 hours) will let you have the water heated up to the desired temperature just when you need it.

Review of Tiger PDU-A30U-K Electric Water Boiler and Warmer

For All Sorts of Uses

The Tiger PDU-A30U-K comes in a 3L capacity to fit the needs of an average family of 3 or 4. However, to meet the demands of larger households and families consuming higher volumes of hot water, the model is also available in 4L and 5L capacities.

As we’ve mentioned above, the unit provides adjustable temperature settings. Thus, you can choose between 208°F (which is close to boiling), 194°F, 176°F, and 158°F. This temperature range was designed to precisely meet the most common cooking needs and tasks. 208°F is perfect for brewing coffee, black tea, and herbal blends. Besides, it’s an optimal temperature for making instant foods like noodles, oats, and soups as well as for blanching and boiling veggies. The 194°F setting works best for drinking Oolong teas and making some pre-packaged beverages like hot chocolate, instant coffee, or cocoa. Meanwhile, 176°F setting is programmed specifically for green and white tees that require steeping and can be easily destroyed by a too hot water. Finally, all young parents will highly appreciate 158°F option ideal for baby formulas. Whether during the day or at night, you’ll get a supply of perfectly heated water to stick to your baby feeding schedule.

Packed with a number of functions and a powerful heating element, the Tiger thermo pot will ensure speedy water heating and warming and deliver consistently high performance that makes it a solid and reliable choice for families with kids, coffee and tea enthusiasts, and all those who seek an efficient alternative to a stove kettle.

Rosewill RHAP-16002

Get Down to the Basics

Some customers are ready to pay more for the reputable brand and some added benefits and options to be sure they get a top-of-the-line product while others rather seek basic functionality and reliability for everyday use. If the latter sounds like you, the Rosewill hot water pot undoubtedly deserves your attention.

What you will get is a large-capacity appliance encased in a stainless steel body with a plastic lid and base. Inside the shell is an inner pot also made of steel for easy hygienic cleaning, quick heating, and better temperature retention. The boiler is also equipped with a handy carry handle to conveniently move the appliance to locations where the boiling hot water is needed. A large water gauge will let you keep an eye on the water level and refill the tank when needed. Besides, the gauge is backlit with a mild blue light to improve visibility and add comfort when pouring hot water under low light conditions. Other than that, the model features dual dispense options. You can use either a trigger dispenser behind the spout to fill cups and mugs or a button press dispenser to pour warm water into glasses, bottles, jars, pitchers, bowls, pots and other large and small vessels.

Coming back to the unit capacity, this model features a 4L water reservoir that makes it a great choice for use not only in large families and hearty households often inviting guests and throwing parties but also for public places, offices and all sorts of public and charity events. The Rosewill can handle boiling and warming large amounts of water with ease. We should be honest, though, that with the power of 750 watts, it won’t boil a filled up to the line tank very quickly. However, it can consistently maintain the desired temperature setting. Once the boiler will heat the water up to one of 3 available settings (208 °F, 185 °F, and 149°F), it will keep it perfectly heated as long as you need.

As far as the unit and user safety is concerned, the basic safety features are also there. A dry boiled protection option will prevent heating element failures, an auto shut-off function protects the unit from overheat, while a detachable power cord prevents accidental tip-overs and an auto-lock prevents hot water splashes and unintended pouring.

Review of Rosewill RHAP-16002 Electric Hot Water Boiler and Warmer

Auto Cool Function

There is one more benefit specific of this model and not common for many of its competitors that can incline you to make your choice in favor of Rosewill. It’s an auto cool function. What it does is set the appliance into a standby mode maintaining the room temperature of the water in the reservoir. This way, you will considerably reduce the energy consumed to maintain water hot and still be able to quickly reboil water when necessary. What’s more, such moderate operation mode also minimizes the wear of a heating element, optimizes the entire unit performance, and prolongs the boiler service life.

Distinguished by solid basic functionality and reliable performance, the Rosewill will become your best everyday kitchen helper and a faithful workhorse for years to come.

What Is a Water Boiler?

There are plenty of various devices used to boil water. We need hot water for almost any meal - brewing coffee or tea, making porridge, cooking soup, making baby food etc. To reduce our time and make it more convenient, a water boiler was invented. With the help of this device you can have hot water in a matter of seconds. Water boilers do not take long to boil water and will maintain it hot for a long time. Due to a variety of water boiler models available on the market, everyone can find a suitable model that will cater to their household needs. For this article, we've selected five most popular brands so that you don't need to make a whole research and can pick one from the best ones.

If you are a coffee connoisseur that can't image your life without a hot cup of coffee, you may want to invest in one of the coffee machines that we've picked for you.

What Features to Compare

When it comes to buying a water boiler, first things first, you should consider its Type and Performance. Typically, there are different types of electric water boilers you can choose from. However, the most popular ones are so-called thermo pots and boil-on-demand heaters. The water boiler performance directly depends on its water tank capacity and power. A thermo pot is a combination of a water boiler and a flask. Once you have boiled water in a thermo pot, you can be sure that the unit will maintain the internal temperature for a long time. Thus, using a thermo pot is the best way to have hot water available almost immediately for making instant coffee or tea. As a rule, such appliances are equipped with water capacity tanks ranging from 67 to 169 oz., that amounts to 2-5 liters. Usually, thermo pots require no special conditions for use, as they don't need permanent installation or water supply connection since the tank is filled up with water manually. In fact, their power usually ranges from 750 to 1000 Watts, which is quite enough for boiling water quickly. It should be noted that water boilers are commonly used for household purposes, or when holding public events. Meanwhile, boil-on-demand heaters are designed for the fast boiling of the small amount of water. Although these kitchen tools generally consume about 1000-1500 Watts, they boast high efficiency, since they use energy only to boil water. The water tank capacity is usually up to 1-2 cups of water (16-32 ounces). The tank is filled with water just before boiling. It should be pointed out that boil-on-demand heaters will suit any kitchen as they don't take up too much space thanks to their small size.

One more thing to consider while choosing the appropriate water boiler heater is its Features, which include different operating temperatures and dispenser types. Apart from water boiling, these appliances may have other useful features. For instance, a thermo pot can be used as a flask. Yet, simple thermo pots have only one temperature maintenance mode. Besides, some thermo pots allow you to select the desired temperature level from 3-4 available, which will keep the temperature steady for some time. This electric appliance is a great choice for tea lovers since different types of tea require different brewing temperatures. By contrast, boil-on-demand water boilers generally only boil water, or can heat it up to the desired level. Typically, most water boilers come with water dispensers. According to the model, they feature dispenser to fill a single cup or continuous mode for large water capacities. Besides, there are pot boilers, which come with an easy-pour spill-proof spout.

And the last but not least important feature is the Usability, which includes safety features and materials. In general, such appliances come with an auto shut-off mode, which turns the unit off if the water level in the tank is below the relief line. A dispenser auto shut-off is useful in case you press the button by accident. In addition, a tight-fitting lid is designed to protect you from hot water if you suddenly turn the device over. The lid is sealed when water is boiling, providing protection from steam. However, it doesn't permit you to fill up the water tank when the boiler is in use. Other convenient features include a water level indicator, which shows that you need to fill in the water tank and water level markings that help not to exceed the relief line. Furthermore, an LCD-display provides easy handling and control of the device operation. Comfortable handles and a detachable cord are handy for convenient transportation of the appliance. The boiler is easy-to-clean due to its stainless steel interior. Moreover, the unit is made of some dishwasher-safe components that greatly simplify its operation.
