I was at first skeptical on water distillers vs filters; but after the first use, I can honestly say I’m a true believer. Just look at that picture! Absolutely vile! That’s just from about 3/4 gallon too. And I live in a fairly non-industrial place in the US (Fargo, ND)! Was an EXTREME pain in the a** to scrub off, so I don’t even wanna know what the heck that is. Does anyone want that in your body?? Seriously smelled like concentrated ammonia. If this doesn’t put the fear of god into ya, I don’t know what will... xP The engineering design could be improved though, the wire for the fan is ‘just’ long enough, here’s hoping it won’t bend the socket later on...
We are using our distiller A LOT!!! It is very easy to use and clean. Being a chemist, I understand this isn't, by the scientific definition, a distiller. But, my husband and I wanted to stop using bottled water and I don't 100% trust the filtered water systems. It is amazing how much solid matter is left in the bottom of the pan, after the water has been evaporated. We add an 1/8th of a teaspoon of celtic sea salt to a 16 oz glass of water, to reminerize the water, and it tastes great.
We thought we'd found a reliable source for bottled distilled at a local supermarket. Then we started using that store-bought distilled water in our humidifier and discovered it was covering everything around it in a coat of white film -- regardless of the label, the store-bought water wasn't entirely distilled after all! A friend from work had already been using an H2O's distiller for several months and highly recommended we get the same model. Based on her experience with it and the countless hours of our own research, it became obvious this really is the best on the market for the price. We ordered it thru this cute website and it arrived within five days. And yes, it's absolutely fantastic! Super easy to clean, easy to fill, and produces a whopping gallon of pure water with each cycle. We're very pleased with this purchase.
I am very satisfied with this distiller so far. It is nice and sturdy and a little larger than I expected. I have had it for about 3 days now and have distilled 4 gallons of water. The stuff left in the bottom of the tank is NASTY! NASTY! NASTY! Every house should have one!!! Your health is worth it. I will return with an updated/detail review after some quality time with this amazing appliance.
