The BestThe Sunbeam Hot Shot is the best! This is my the 3rd one in thirty plus years. I 've worried I wouldn't be able to find a new one.(The area stores weren't stocking the Hot Shot so I looked Online. And surprise, surprise there it was on the Sunbeam website!) The first was a hand-me-down from my late mother-in-law in the early 1980's. The Hot Shot is a mother's right hand in the morning for Hot Chocolate and the oatmeal/cream of wheat packets. The water heats fast and hot compared to a microwave. My daughter said, if one isn't available when she moves out she'll borrow mine, permantly(sp). I may need to buy 1 or 2 more for relatives...

Poor Replacement #6142I had a previous Hot shot for 11 years and used it 4-5 times daily for tea. Eventually dispenser bar broke after all that time and I understood. Very disappointed in the replacement. It only lasted 2 months. I'm getting my money back but that's not important to me. After reading the reviews I should have known what might be coming. The dispenser bar snapped off in a very short time. Sunbeam has to know about this defect. The plastic tabs are not suitable and should be metal or some other design. Sunbeam can't say they don't know this. Just test it and it will happen. Please listen to you faithful customers and change this design. It can be such a great appliance with a modification.

Go back to prior designI would gladly pay double the current retail price if Sunbeam would revert to prior design of the Hot Shot. I had one that worked fine for 15 years but it finally broke down. About a year ago, I purchased a replacement and after about a year, the dispenser button broke off. I ordered a replacement from Amazon (recommended by Sunbeam), and the dispenser tab was frozen -- would not dispense at all. I have a replacement on-order to be delivered next week. I wish Sunbeam would revert to the more durable design and manufacture used for their Hot Shot when it was originally produced. If the cost needs to go up, that would be fine by me.

some good, some not so goodI've had a hotshot for about 20 years and use it every day. My older version had features that I hope will be brought back. The old version had an electrical cord almost twice as long as this new one. The new one has to set in front of my spice rack, which is inconvenient because of the short cord. The new one looks nice, but I prefer the smaller, sleeker size of the old one that did not take up as much room. Also, the ridges on the cup holder section is not as easy to clean as the smooth surface of the older one. I would still recommend this because it heat just the right amount of water, is small and not bulky.

Good, but like the old design betterI love the Hot Shot and have used various models for at least 15 years. They were great when my daughter was younger and wanted hot water for cereal or hot chocolate. It seemed much safer than boiling water on a hot stove. However, I have to agree that the placement and design of the power button is not as good as the old model. And sometimes, the "on" button just doesn't work as well. Still, the Hot Shot heats hot water quickly (probably faster than the microwave), and delivers boiling water for tea, coffee, hot cereal, etc.

A Cheap Product with a Cheap DesignAs I already wrote a letter describing my disatisfaction with the Sunbeam water heater that I purchased on line and sent back, my comments shall be very brief. It was not nearly as well made as the previous model that I had, and had many small problems as it was also poorly designed. So I purchased a more expensive model which is still not as good as the old Sunbeam water heater that I had and which I bought used and lasted for over ten years with continous almost daily use. They sure don't make water heaters they used to!

Original model was much better design & constructI unfortunately just had to replace my original hot shot after 10 years (heat and dispense buttons were both in the front) and mugs fit under dispenser with no problem. The new model style is no where has good as the original. I can not fit my mug under this dispenser, the water constantly leaks out of the water dispenser. Need to go back to the old style - much better and sturdier. Ratings listed are for the new model NOT the original model!

DisappointedI bought the newest black model to go with my kitchen remodel. Poor quality.The dispenser lever broke on it. The older, heavier, white model with the gray heating and dispensing levers
together, was much more durable and accomodated tall mugs. It lasted 6 years. Please bring it back in black.
