Zojirushi CV-DSC40 VE Stainless Steel Hybrid Water Boiler and Warmer Water Dispenser Product Info
Zojirushi is known for its quality line of countertop products. Add to that line instant hot water dispensers such as the Zojirushi CV-DSC40. Just like all the Zojirushi brands, the Zojirushi VE Hybrid Water Boiler and Warmer provides its simple functions with a lot of convenience yet no extra frills. To keep your hot water at the ready, the unit features a micro-computerized temperature-control system and multiple keep-warm temperature settings that include 175, 195, and 208 degrees. This means it reboils your water as needed at one of the three preset temperatures you want.
The appliance features a micro-computerized temperature-control system, and its control panel displays the actual water temperature at all times. Other highlights include a convenient timer function that can be set from 6 to 10 hours, an easy-to-read water-level gauge, a 3-foot power cord, automatic safety shut-off, and an audible beep indicator to alert to the completion of the boiling process or a low water level. The unit’s clear-coated stainless-steel exterior cleans easily and nicely accommodates any kitchen decor, domestic or commercial.
What we like most about the Zojirushi CV-DSC40 VE Stainless Steel Hybrid Water Boiler and Warmer Water Dispenser
- Zojirushi usually features their trademark “plain” and/or “flowery” aesthetics. However this model’s clear-coated stainless-steel looks sleek and modern and can fit into most kitchen’s designs.
- Steel finish also wipes very easily
- Optimal dispense rate to avoid splashing
- Three temperature settings is very convenient for most of your hot water needs from tea to noodles.
Things You Might Want To Consider
- Temperature change between the three presets may not be as quick as you’d like
- Inside is not stainless, it’s plastic which may disappoint you if you didn’t know.
- As with all instant hot water dispensers, descaling can be a chore.
- While the magnetic power plug is a good feature on most Zojirushi brands, because this features stainless steel/metal cover, it may be hard to “blindly” plug it in.
- For a counter top hot water dispenser, this one is pricier – what you buy is the vacuum insulation and stainless steel exterior. May or may not be worth it depending on your tastes
- It’s an electronic dispenser: it needs to be plugged in to dispense water which limits its flexibility.
Overall: if you are looking for functionality, durability, and convenience, Zojirushi is a great manufacturer for countertop hot water dispensers. As far as the Zojirushi CV-DSC40 , you’re paying the higher price for the vacuum insulation (for energy efficiency) and the stainless steel outside.
What Owners Are Saying
“Almost two years later and it not only looks fine but functions just as well as the day I got it. I have to descale it about every 9 months or so. Other than that it is pretty maintenance free. Talk about longer term bang for your buck. If you drink tea or would use boiling water on a daily basis, this is a staple for your kitchen. I have also found the steel finish wipes very easily. A friend who bought the white version has some staining that stubbornly persists to this day. All in all if you get one you will not be disappointed…(READ MORE)”
“If you just want to plug something in and then get immediate hot water at the touch of a button, then this product does everything you would probably want it to do and does it well, while looking good. Easy to set water temps, timer (ok, here, you could complain that its not a clock but rather a timer from the time of setting but I just leave mine going all the time anyways and the vacuum seal keeps it from using too much energy while maintaining 175F all day), and even a button so that the water doesnt pour too fast. Overall very good quality, good capacity…(READ MORE)”
“I have to admit that all main features are great and very convenient – it keeps water at set temperature and boil it at set time. The thermos feature appear to be useless since after couple hours temperature of water – still hot – drops to the point when you can’t make tea or noodles, and need to reboil. Another disappointment was inability to dispense water away from power outlet. All in all, this unit has very nice modern design, a lot of convenience and safety features. I believe it is a bit overpriced, but otherwise – great addition to contemporary kitchen…(READ MORE)”
