I'm so excited to find one of these - my dad got me one when I was in college living in the dorm and it was awesome! For making tea or hot chocolate, or anything that requires boiling water, it's a mess free simple way to heat a coffee cup's worth of liquid up to boiling temperature, without having to get out a kettle and wait for a large amt of water to boil on the stove or dealing with taking a scalding hot mug out of the microwave, or investing in an electric kettle like the Brits do. It comes in handy more times than you would think.
I ruined mine in college by dropping it when it was already at its top heat into a second cup of water that was really cold - something popped and it died. So don't do that. I'm excited to get another one
Like another review here, I had one of these in college. Always dependable, never had a problem. I ordered this one for warming the water in my neti pot in the bathroom. After a few weeks it just stopped working. Also, the end of the stainless steel that goes into the pot turned color. I have no clue hoe such a simple gizmo could break. Never dropped, unplugged after use, etc. Anyway, I suppose it's too late to return for another but like everything else, there's always an occasional lemon made with everything (especially electric for me). Back to warming water in the kitchen & schlepping it back to the bathroom
