Nutrichef PKTWC10WT Countertop Water Cooler Dispenser
White Nutrichef PKTWC10WT is a compact countertop style water cooler and dispenser that can be used with both the 3 and 5-gallon bottles, for hot and cold water at your service all day long. The hot water spout has the “Child Security Lock” button so you can have a peace of mind that there won’t be any unpleasant accidents- all your family can use it comfortably. You can get the hot water between 170 and 175 degrees Fahrenheit for your hot drinks- coffee, tea, hot chocolate, instant soup and oats and cold water between 40 and 45 degrees for those hot summer days or when you want to have a refreshing beverage. It runs very quietly while it cools and heats water very quickly with the auto electric plug-in water dispenser (only does a slight humming noise when heating). You have the “Cold On” and “Hot On” switches at the back that you can turn off for security, to save on electricity bills or when you just want room temperature water. There is a small charcoal gray cabinet door just at the front on the left of the two water spouts and you can use it for putting paper cups or other small items in.
You can conveniently use it both at home and office as it is rather easy to operate and will fit in any tight spaces or in any corner comfortably being lightweight and small with a weight of 14.8 pounds and measurements of 22.3 x 13.7 x 13.4 inches. For the low price level concerned this seems like a wonderful value unit that works well with both very cold and very hot water, is convenient, functional, solid and good looking and happens to have decent customer support if you ever run into any problems, judging by a couple of customer experiences. It has a sturdy build but there aren’t any suction feet and you may want to be careful for not moving it. Both the hot and cold water come out quickly and there is never a strange odor or taste in your water. Despite being a compact countertop unit, it is not a particularly short one and it may be a little hard to put the 5-gallon water bottle on top and you may need help from another person. You’ll probably find that a water cooler on the countertop is easy to use and the little kids will not be able to easily reach it like the floor standing units. It seems like a good value water dispenser with a unique design and great functionality with customer ratings averaging 4.4 out of 5, which is quite good.
