Get to know this popular water boiler in our complete breakdown below and learn how to prepare some of our favorite water boiler recipes, too!
Design & Functionality
The Micom Water Boiler & Warmer features a sleek, contemporary design that comes in a Metallic Black color and in a 4 or 5 liter size. Made for your convenience, the water boiler features a swivel base for easy serving, an easy-to-read wide window water level gauge to show you how much water you have in your water boiler, and a detachable power cord to avoid any tangles when storing.
There are four keep warm temperature settings that you can set your water heater to, which are 160°F, 175°F, 195°F and 208°F. Not to mention, there is a Quick Temp mode, which reaches 160°F, 175°F or 195°F temperature settings without boiling, shortening your waiting time. Because this water boiler has a micro computerized temperature control system, the LCD display shows accurate water temperatures at all times, and also has an energy-saving timer function between 6-10 hours. You can use this feature to set up a delay timer to boil your water later, by simply pressing the “timer” button.
As always, safety is a top priority for us in our design process, and this Micom water boiler has an auto shut-off feature that prevents water from boiling dry, an automatic dispense lock, and all surfaces that come into contact with food or water are BPA-free.
Use & Care
To use these water boilers, simply fill the water to your desired level of water by referencing the clear water level lines on the inner container of the pot. Close the lid, select your desired temperature, and wait for the water boiler to work its magic! When the warm water has reached your desired temperature setting, the machine will let you know it’s ready by serenading you with a melody. Now all you have to do is press “unlock” and then “dispense” to dispense your water. Note that to use Café Drip mode for drip coffee, simply press the unlock button twice before dispensing.
This water heater features a nonstick coated interior that makes it easier to clean and a detachable lid that you can clean separately. See the water boiler in action:
