Keeping hydrated is important and my doctor requested that I drink at least 10-12 glasses of water a day. Also you good people who work out regularly, know how important keeping hydrated is. If you are like me, you don’t like drinking from the tap. And all those water bottles aren’t good for the environment. Not to mention having lots of them in my car or the grandkids bedrooms!
I was looking into a solution, when I was given the opportunity from Masshole Mommy to review a new water dispenser from the NewAir Company. I checked out their website at http://www.newair.com.
After looking at several models I, decided on model WAT40 in black. This model is also available in white. I picked the black to match my other appliances. What else drew me to this unit was that the size was perfect and it would fit at the end of my cabinets and blend in well. But what really got me excited was the fact that the water bottle was hidden in the base of the unit. The NewAir WAT40 is a great convenient way to get all the fresh clean water you want. As I said the biggest selling point for me was that the large water bottle is hidden away in the base of the unit. All you do in open the cabinet in the front, remove the cap from the bottle and put in the pump nozzle, push it down to the bottom of the bottle, slide the bottle into the unit and close the door. It is that easy! No spills or lifting heavy bottles. The water is then pumped into stainless steel tanks. Being stainless steel, the tanks are 100% BPA free.
Operating the dispenser is very easy. The unit is turned on from the back. There are red/ hot and blue/cold switches that you flip on and the unit begins to work and warm/ cool the water. To dispense you just place your glass or water bottle against the blue tab and cold water fills your container. To operate the hot water, you need to press the button against the red tab and press against the red tab, at the same time. This is a safety feature and if not done in the correct order the red tab will shut off. I really like this feature. You can also shut off the hot water by the red switch on the back of the unit.
There are lights on the unit that let you know what the unit is doing, such as warming/ cooling the water when a new bottle is installed. Also there is a light that will blink when the bottle is getting too low. Cleaning is easy, just undo the top to clean the stainless steel unit about every 3 months. Also the drip tray is easy to remove and is dishwasher safe.
My family is really enjoying the NewAir40. My grandsons love to make instant hot chocolate and the adults love the quick cup of tea it provides. Many times in cooking , a recipe calls for hot water and I love the fact that it is so convenient. And of course I am loving filling my large water bottle and knowing I have plenty of water while I am out and about. If my car could talk it would say how happy it is without a pile of disposable water bottles in it! I know that I will get many years of enjoyment and use from my NewAir40. It has a one year warranty on defective parts as long as the unit was being used in normal operating conditions. It is also backed up by NewAir’s customer service team.
Having the NewAir40 has turned out to be the perfect solution for my families clean fresh water use. Take a look at the NewAir Facebook page and see what other consumers feel about their water dispensers. For a chance to win your own, enter here.
