Product Description

Save money on bottled water! This Micom super boiler has a computerized temperature control system that removes chlorine from water and reduces musty odors that affect flavor. Heats to 208 degrees and also has a convenient re-boil mode. A Keep Warm system heats water to make beverages or soups. Features a safety shut-off and refill signal system. The interior is nonstick making it very easy to clean. De-scaling mode keeps the unit sparkling clean. 3-liter/101-oz. capacity.

With its air pump dispenser and touchpad controls, the Micom electric air pot from Zojirushi keeps hot water conveniently at the ready in your home or workspace. The potĄŻs micro-computerized temperature system regulates heat precisely, first boiling water then keeping it at a steady 208 degrees F for future use. To get water back up to maximum temperature, you just hit the convenient re-boil button. A dechlorinating feature reduces chlorine and musty odors in tap water, and a descaling feature cleans the nonstick interior. A simple lock on the lid helps protect hands, and automatic shut-off prevents boiling dry or overheating. With its 3-liter capacity, the pot takes 29 minutes to boil if you fill it all the way. ThatĄŻs no speed record, but the all-day convenience does redeem the initial wait. Helpful details include a water-level gauge, a swivel base, a basket-style handle, a removable power cord, and function indicator lights. --Emily Bedard

Customer Reviews:

  • Excellent pot!
    We are very happy with our new pot. It is easy to use and holds plenty of water for at least a whole day's use for a family of five. In addition, it is attractive to look at!...more info
  • very handy
    Had this for over a year- we use it not only for boiling water for tea, instant chocolate or soup, but dispenses boiling water for use in cooking- much hotter than tap water. Also, we have taken it to a remote site with electric but no running water to get hot water for food & hygeine. The magnetic plug falls off the machine easily when you move it but this seems to be a safety feature- otherwise a tightly attached cord might make a pot of 208 degree water tip over! Very well made & easy to use. Want to get another for the office. ...more info
  • air pump wears out
    We own one for over 6 years now. Love it. Only problem is that because it's mechanical (air pump), that eventually wears out. I think the seal in the pump need replacing. It used to to fill a cup with just one pump, but now takes 10 or more pumps.

    Other than that, I love it. I am looking at purchasing a new one, the kind that uses electric pump....more info

  • Great Electric Airpot with reasonable price!!!
    It is a friendly user device. It works great with reasonable price....more info
  • Fantastic device/invention
    I ordered this product for work when one of our employees informed me that in the Asian culture (he is from Taiwan), tea pots such as this one are commonplace. Before we bought this pot, our employees used to heat water using a hotpot, which did not hold much water. Now, they fill the pot with 3 liters of water, and anytime they want a cup of tea, they simply press the top and dispense the water. The liquid stays hot all day. I find this device an incredible invention (although I now know people have been using it for years). For anyone who drinks tea (or needs hot water for soups, rice, etc) and does not feel like boiling water each time, this is a fantastic device....more info
  • Great Hot Water Pot
    I purchased this for my wife, who has allergy and asthma problems, and needs frequent access to hot drinks.

    The Pot works very well. There almost no noticeable heat loss from the AirPot. And there is very little loss of water, so it is a very efficient system....more info
  • I had some concerns and now I love this thing
    I bought the electric air pot to address a number of issues that needed attention: I wanted to minimize the use of the microwave as much as possible, and I wanted to replace a diet soda pop habit with more healthful drinks. I had an electric kettle, but it was plastic and could not keep water warm throughout the day. I used to have a regular kettle, but I have lupus with some cognitive issues, and that kind of forgetfulness just doesn't mix too well with stove top cooking. I trashed two regular kettles before I got that one through my head.

    After getting this product, I am wondering what I ever did without it. I no longer worry about carcinogen exposure from heating water in plastic. The air pot has a nonstick interior, but all of the research I looked at indicated that if there is any risk from unscratched nonstick surfaces, it happens only at temperatures over 350 degrees. Water boils at 212 degrees. Additionally, the interior of the air pot is well-constructed, and there doesn't seem to be any way I could possibly scratch it unless I used a fork or steel wool on it.

    It keeps the water a good temperature for most teas, for soups, for getting a head start on pasta or rice, and for making coffee with a french press. The water tastes much better than it tasted after boiling in my plastic kettle. I have added an appliance timer to turn on the airpot before I wake up in the morning so that I do not have to wait for my first caffeine of the day. Zojirushi makes more expensive models that take care of the timer aspect, but I didn't want to spend the extra money.

    What I did spend was not too much more than I would have for a non-plastic electric kettle (which, if you look at the reviews, might very well turn out to have plastic parts that have contact with the heated water) that was safer than a regular electric kettle, that was more convenient than a regular electric kettle, and that is already saving me money. I don't drink diet soda anymore, and I don't waste old, cold coffee or tea. I can make what I need as I need it, because the hot water is always readily available.

    Love it even MORE now!

    Months later, I am using the airpot every day. It works perfectly. In addition to using it to make coffee and tea, I use the hot water to get a head start on steel cut oatmeal, pasta, rice, soup (wait, that's not a head start - that's the whole thing), just as I was when I first bought it.

    However, I have also started using it for non-food applications! I had no idea. Hot packs for sore muscles, in my mop bucket to clean the floor, the extra heat makes a huge difference.

    Finally, I have not had any need for this information, but I was contacted by someone who read my review about finding replacement parts. According to Zojirushi's website:

    "Replacement parts may be ordered from our online Zojirushi Store or from our Customer Service Department by calling 800-733-6270, M-F, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST. Please have the model number ready when calling."

  • Fabulous little hot water pot!
    We love this pot, and keep hot water available 24 hours--nice to grab that lunchtime soup or late-night cup of camomile tea. It is easy to use (pour in water & plug in) and pour (push down on circle which depresses on top of lid). Great value! This was a surprise appliance in the best possible way--never expeccted to like it so much or use it so constantly on the kitchen counter--good looking too! Jill...more info
  • Really useful
    This is a splurge item, but a practical one. Having easy access to hot water for quick drinks or anything that you'd have to boil water for is really nice.

    Maintains a good constant heat and dispenses it safely....more info
  • 30 minutes to boil water!!!!!!!!!
    I researched extensively and although those around me thought I was crazy to spend $100.00 to boil water, I wanted the best for my new French Press. Imagine my dismay, when I opened my Electric Air Pot today, and read that it takes 30 minutes to boil water!!!!!!! Why not 60 minutes or 2 hours? This "inexpensive" model (almost $100.00) doesn't even have a timer so I can't set it to be ready when I wake. I hate returning things but I can't keep this on principal alone. I'm sure this is a great product once you get the water up to temperature, although the top is very loose and wobbly at the hinges which concerned me but is it really too much to ask that they warn you in the specs that this takes forever to heat up water? Gonna go with a cheap plastic electric teapot and take my chances with water that tastes like plastic and leaches toxic chemicals. It's better than waiting a half hour to prepare my coffee in the morning. Update: Like I said, I'm not one to return things, so I spent 20 bucks for a timer and I'm keeping it. As expected, it's basically a pretty decent device. I do wish there wasn't so much water left over at the bottom as pouring it out is a hassle due too its size and I'm not about to remove the top to do it each time, so I'll be careful. Only gets 3 stars for not being up front about how long it takes to boil and lack of proper instructions about whether or not this model can be filled partially instead of all 3 liters. When contacted, the company says it must be filled to the max line as there's no sensor in this model to distinguish quantity but the boil mode leads me to believe it's not really necessary. If I have the guts to try it half full I'll let you know the results....more info
  • Well worth the money!
    This is a great appliance with so many uses. We've had our dispenser for several years and use it almost every day. We've never had any problems with it. Highly recommend this product!!...more info
  • Great product, highly recommended
    I highly recommend this water pot. I had mine over 12 years and it is still going strong. One pump will give me a full cup of water. I only thing I have to replace is the rubber sealing ring around the inner lid (about $15 including s/h). Other than that, this product out performed my expectations in every way. I highly recommend it....more info
