We purchased this Cosori, 1.7L, Cordless, Glass Hot Water Heater seven weeks ago and can offer the following review after using this Cosori unit at least twice a day for these past seven weeks.
We have found this Cosori unit to be very easy to use. We fill the carafe with the desired liquid volume, place the glass carafe onto the heating unit, and activate the Start switch to begin the short heating process. Most of our liquid heating requests are for the maximum volume -- 1.7L. The heating time from the Start request to full boil is less than five minutes. I have measured the water temperature at full boil with an infrared heat measuring instrument. The recorded temperature has been 212 degrees Fahrenheit - consistently. The blue LED light does illuminate when electrical power is being employed to function the unit. The blue LED light shuts off when the heating function ceases.
Cleaning procedures are clearly described in the enclosed owner's manual/instructions. We use a clean cloth to wipe down the exterior of the unit as well as the interior of the carafe. I have found the carafe's opening quite large enough to easily perform any wipe-down of the carafe's interior walls or stainless steel bottom. To that end, it's a considerate design element that the lid-affixed liquid strainer has some flexibility so that any inadvertent bump to the strainer while cleaning the carafe's interior, will help prevent any permanent damage to the strainer or lid.
Pouring boiling liquid from the carafe into a cup or other receptacle has been easy and safe. Neither one of us have found the weight of a full carafe to be an issue.
The electrical heating plate, on which the glass carafe rests, does accept a few wraps (on the underside of the electrical plate) of the electrical cord should cord length be a concern. It has not been so for us.
Yes. We have caused the glass carafe to lightly "clunk" against the sink faucet, sink, counter top. No scratching or fractures have occurred to the glass.
De-scaling cleaning process/instructions - we have amended only the following: Two cups of distilled vinegar to one cup of water.
Based on our seven weeks of use and communication with Cosori representatives, we would recommend this Amazon seller for honesty and integrity and this unit for dependable function.
