Bought two; one for work, one for home. Needed a better way of guesstimating the water temp for tea brewing.
Negatives: Cord is too short.
Loud, very loud for an intimate office.
Positives: What a deal. Easy set up. One hour of keeping the water at set temp. No burnt leaves in my teapot.
Overall: Great buy, been using for about a month now daily with no problems in functionality. Now if only it had a muffler.
