NewAir contacted me recently about reviewing one of their products. I had the choice of their ice makers or water dispensers. I chose the NewAir WCD-200W Water Dispenser, drawn to the fact that it has a hot water function and knowing it would be great this winter for quick cocoa and easy cup-a-soups for the kids.
Shipping: They shipped my dispenser out quickly. It arrived before we had even returned from vacation, so I was very impressed with speed of shipment. It was packed well and securely.
Size: I was worried that it would be quite heavy and I wouldn’t be able to lift it, but it’s surprisingly light for its size. It is also much smaller than I thought it would be. It’s the perfect size really for our kitchen. I was worried about how much space it would take and where we would put it, but it takes very little space at all and fits in perfectly in a corner by our cabinets.
Functionality/Features: It’s extremely easy to set up and fits a standard water jug. There are two dispensers, one for cold and one for hot. I appreciate that they have an extra mechanism on the hot water feature that aids in preventing accidental pouring of hot water and potential for burns. If you’ll take a look at the picture above, you have to clamp both toggles to be able to dispense hot water. With small children in our home, this is a great feature! There is also storage hidden in the bottom below the drip tray, which is convenient for storing cups.
Quality: The parts are all well made and the construction is solid. The motor is very quiet. It’s a compact dispenser and easy to place the water jug. There is no leaking or dripping after dispensing water.
My son’s reaction this morning when he saw that we had set up the water dispenser. “I love the water [dispenser]. It’s the best thing ever.” It really came at the perfect time, as the water dispenser on our refrigerator went out, but even if that was working it is more convenient and the water tastes better. Again, I love that there is a hot water feature, which comes out at just the right temperature for that perfect cup of tea or cocoa. On the cold side, the water comes out cold and is very refreshing.
Overall, I am very pleased with this product and I would highly recommend it for purchase for a home or office. It provides cold and ready water, as well as hot, and this is very convenient in a busy home or office.
