If you want that total stainless steel look for your high end kitchen, or a beautiful showpiece, the Maximum Stainless Water Cooler delivers. The exterior is completely covered in sparkling stainless steel and premium nickel plating, right down to the buttons, giving that stunning total stainless steel look. With the unattractive bottle hidden in the bottom, and stainless gleaming from every angle, many consider this the most stunning water cooler they've ever seen. Complimenting the upscale look is internal technology as sophisticated as the outside. In normal coolers, water becomes contaminated by bacteria. They are not cleaned regularly, and the damp environment lets bacteria multiply quickly. Oxy3 Self Clean technology uses reactive oxygen to kill bacteria, keeping the water fresh tasting and sanitary. Glacial Chill technology uses ice to keep the water steadily icy cold. Normal cooling technology, without the moderating effect of ice, allows water to warm up as high as 61 degree F in some coolers. HotBoost technology injects preheated water into the hot water tank. A steaming hot temperature is steadily maintained; perfect for tea. Normal hot water technology allows the water to cool down too much, often resulting in weak tea. The water cooler does not clean or filter tap water, and must be used with bottled water.

  • All stainless steel exterior with nickel plated trim
  • A showpiece in any kitchen or office, high end look like professional espresso machines
  • Self cleans several times a day using reactive oxygen technology, the unstable oxygen rips bacteria apart and keeps the cooler clean from bio-film, and murky off tastes
  • Glacial Chill technology uses a ring of ice to keep water at a steady temperature just above freezing, making a refreshingly chilly glass of water
  • Produces 1.6 gal. of icy cold water per hour
  • HotBoost technology injects preheated water into the hot tank, maintaining a very high average temperature
  • Produces 1.4 gal. of piping hot water per hour
  • Patented external heating disk prevents calcium buildup which occurs on internal heating elements, leading to failure, or making unappetizing white flakes in your water
  • Durable heating technology allows dry operation, such as when you run out of water, the hot tank often overheats and breaks with normal coolers
  • Hot tank is not welded up the sides, top and bottom like the common tin can design that can rust, leading to eventual hot tank failure and leaking
  • Professional grade compressor technology turns on about 30 times less than the average commercial grade cooler; which often starts failing after a year or two of use
  • Thicker cold-rolled steel solid frame construction holds up to wear and tear; can bear 330 lb. of top weight
  • Side panels use hard automobile grade powder coating instead of cheaper paint
  • Sanitary recessed faucet outlets prevent cups touching and sharing of germs
  • Deep drip tray holds a full two cups of water
  • Refrigerant gas lines are specially coated to prevent rust pitting which leads to gas leaks and no cooling
  • Exceeds Energy Star's requirements, yet produces more cold and hot water than normal commercial grade coolers
  • Energy saving hot water switch, you can turn off when not in use

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bottom load water cooler Good looking water cooler that works very well. The hot water is hot enough to brew good tea, and the cold water is very cold. There have been complaints about this water cooler being loud, but in my experience this one is much quieter than my previous one, the water pump and refrigerator compressor in this unit is pretty quiet, and barely noticeable. In my previous water cooler air bubbles would cause the water to sputter (which was messy and painful with the hot water), but this water cooler dispenses a steady stream without sputtering. It seems to be well made, and leaves very little water at the bottom of the bottle. September 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by happier than expected We are really happy with this stainless steel water cooler/heater. We were leery because of some problems others had. Some reviews indicated the instructions were not clear, very confusing. We couldn't agree more on that, but once the initial cleaning was done and it was up and running we were very pleased with it. Had not had the option of hot water before and actually finding it very helpful. It is noisy when it pumps up water but that lasts for a few seconds. The empty bottle beeper can be stopped by opening and then closing the door. As long as you don't pull any more water out of it the beeping will stop, so you don't have to listen to it while getting another bottle. We haven't had it very long but so far it is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cold, but noisy I thought self-cleaning meant that it cleans itself, but not for this product. You are directed to clean it before use and then at regular intervals after. It produces very cold water every time, which is what we purchased it for. It is NOISY, however! It often goes into the self-cleaning cycle (then why do we have to clean it?). In addition, when the bottle is very low, the noise starts and doesn't stop until you replace the bottle. November 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent water cooler Noise: Most of the time it is silent. After you pour some water, the pump rumbles a bit and then you can hear the heater or cooler running for a short interval. Neither noise is bothersome compared to normal kitchen noises (dishwasher, icemaker, etc.). Condition: No dents or other damage. Water temp: Hot water is about 190, cold water is about 45. Water quality: Excellent. No off tastes at all. Design: Also excellent. Once it is set up, everything works easily and well. Changing bottles is quick and simple. Setup: The cleaning process when you first get it will take about 30-60 minutes depending on how thorough you are. (You are supposed to rinse out the whole system with water+bleach, then pure water to get out the bleach.) The manual is terrible. The instructions are written in broken English, difficult to understand, and not consistent between different parts of the manual. Example: "Dis-assembly probe assembly wash probe parts by hand in soapy water or in the dishwater; Romove filter and wash in soapy water." It is supposed to be self-cleaning but the instructions say to clean it every three months. It looks like parts of the manual are for a different, filtering product. The exceptionally poor manual is inexcusable and is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. The manual is on the Home Depot product page so you can take a look before you buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Looks good, works bad. I bought this because it looked good and I like the idea of not looking at the water bottle, and also not lifting it. When we got this home and started it up, the enjoyment was quickly over. The water tastes terrible, like oily plastic or something similar. When it runs it makes a great deal of noise, and even has a vibrating sound that we can only stop if we hold our hand on top of the machine. The main reason I purchased this unit was to have good cold water, and it does not do that. The water tastes terrible like oil is leaking into it or something. I took it back and purchased one at another store. April 9, 2014
