  • Safer drinking water, for a price.

    Jun 15, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great store-quality water with little effort.
    Cons: It's a bit pricey. A bit slow. Uses as much space as two coffee machines.

    Summary: Nobody needs to worry about what's in their water, right? People demanding purified water instead of drinking tap water are just paranoid - you wonder where their Aluminum foil hats are and move about your day... right? I used to laugh and think - ... read more

  • Good Thing

    Pros: cleaner than reverse osmosis; more reliable; no more filters
    Cons: slow; not as convenient.

    Summary: We used an reverse osmosis (RO) system for years. Then the lines got contaminated. So we looked to replace the system. We considered distillation as an option. After much research, we concluded that distillation was better and more reliable than RO. ... read more

  • have exchanged our purifier 4 times

    Jun 14, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Low original cost of purifier
    Cons: Bad taste, fast build up with expensive cleaner which I would need to use daily.

    Summary: Our first Kenmore purifier just quit working after about a month. The motor stopped. We exchanged it with no problem but the next 3 have had a funny taste like a chemical taste. I wouldn't mind a flat taste but I am sure there is something making it ... read more

  • Kenmore Water Purifier

    Feb 27, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A flat out healthier way of living period
    Cons: Takes up a big chunk of counter space.

    Summary: I have owned 2 of these water purifiers. I am very interested in alternative health methods, and wanted to try the "purest" water. The first model I bought several years ago was just a bulky canister, with too many plugs involved, and a plastic ... read more

    Pros: Looks good
    easy to use & clean
    Cons: water tastes bad
    plastic jug - I dont need bisphenol a in my purified water.

    Summary: I purchased this distiller about a week ago and ened up returning the unit today for a refund. My decision to return the product was based on a fairly noticable bad taste in the distilled water. I believe the bad taste is probably due to a low ... read more

    Pros: Reliable
    Great taste
    Convenient
    Cons: Doesn't come with a carbon filter
    Somewhat pricey

    Summary: I've waited 2 years to write this review since I bought this Kenmore water distiller on the recommendations of others on Epinions. I run one batch about every day or two and it has worked very well for the two years. The fan noise is acceptable to me and ... read more

  • WHAT GRADE PLASTIC IS THE WATER JUG?

    Apr 20, 2008 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: Lots - great, cheap and easy to use - convenient like crazy!
    Cons: a timer would be nice but certainly not necessary

    Summary: Love it - great and easy to use. Only one question - does anyone know what type of plastic is used in the water jug? I am concerned that it contains Bisphenol A - a chemical that has been banned in Canada for the use in baby bottles and has been deemed ... read more

    Pros: great when all the parts work
    Cons: lid won't seal

    Summary: I purchased a second distiller and received it yesterday. The lid will not seal. When the water heats up, the lid pops up. I put the lid from the first distiller on new pot, and it locked into place just fine. I am running it now to see if the seal ... read more

  • No More Fluoride and Chloroamines!

    Pros: Great ergonomics!
    Cons: Easy to spill water when emptying caraf too quickly.

    Summary: This is a very well designed distiller. My only concern now is the durability of the rubber seal of the kettle, which another reviewer complained about. His problem might be caused by the presence of organic volatiles in his water. Acetone is known to ... read more

    Pros: Kenmore purifier is very good.Our old model lasted for 6 years.
    Cons: This model only last for 6months....and then the rubber on the gasket gets broken.

    Summary: Thinking that it was going to be as durable as our old one, we bought this purifier a year ago. We had to return it because the rubber on the gasket broke. Sears took it back and replaced it. Six months later, the same problem happened. This time, Sears ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, not too loud, looks nice, works as advertised.
    Cons: Not so easy to clean, while not too loud, it's still not quiet.

    Summary: I found out my fibromyalgia was due to fluoride. I knew I had to get a filter of some kind. After searching avidly for months, I learned that the only 100% sure way to get rid of fluoride, was to distill water. I tried to find distillers, but I kept ... read more

    Pros: Aside from the cost of electricity, there are no additional running costs.
    Cons: It occupies roughly the same counter space as a small microwave oven.

    Summary: I have had my Kenmore Water Purifier for well over a year now, and am loving it. There are NO filters and no parts that need to be replaced. I run it three times a day and feel confident that I am drinking the purest and most healthful water possible. ... read more
