Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by good price Working good, after 4 months hot water gone. Covered by manufacturers warraty but need to ship to MI and cost about $70 for shipping. June 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best I could find within reasoon I did a substantial amount of online research before settling on this unit (which when I purchased it had no reviews whatsoever anywhere) which lead me to conclude it was certainly no worse then most others and the name igloo spoke to me of quality without exception and I am pleasantly impressed. I was surprised to find that there is an on/off switch at the top rear [easily accessible] of the unit for both refrigeration and the heating element, hence I thought a mention of the ability to have room temperature water should have been made, it was not. After-all I have a microwave for tea and a refrigerator for cold water so I do not necessarily need this unit to function as such, but having the option is very welcome, and hence I can save on the wasted electric if my other appliances are functioning correctly. The spigots/spouts work well. With the safety on the hot (I get it) to prevent childhood scalding's as does the drip catch, not that the valves drip or otherwise do not promptly stop, they do. It is not over-sized nor under and is built appropriately and sturdily. I would highly recommend the unit and haven't a complaint whatsoever. Oh I never give more then 4 stars but seriously considered giving this unit 5 never-mind that igloo your doing well. September 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not sure I would get another, but just a little disappointed Only to let one know that it started leaking all over my floor , but that was after 2 years of use Thought it would last longer Not sure if it is worth getting it repaired as it was inexpensive However, I miss getting the hot water on demand for making tea, and for cooking February 21, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by water cooler Water never got colder then 50 degrees any time checked February 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best purchase should have done sooner I really love this water cooler . The bottled water sure tastes better than city water. It is really quick for a quick cup of hot coffee,tea or hot chocolate. I would would really give this product a big thumbs up. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Water cooler Cooler works great. Price is good and shipped quickly February 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Only complaint is needs a temperature control. Hot is very hot and cold is not as cold as you would expect. January 20, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by you get what you pay for It is cheaply made. The drip container was missing the piece to grip into slot. For the money it will suffice with gentle use. January 13, 2015
