Works well - for about 12 months
Scale shows up on it very quickly - impossible to keep looking sparkling clean. Very noisy boil. Lining around joins began disintegrating and appearing in the water. We had been drinking from it for a while before we realised and by the time we did, a lot of the material around the seals in the jug had come away. So goodness knows how much we ended up ingesting. Scary, because the jug is made in China and OHS is not a big thing over there (their standards are not the same as in NZ). Even though it says on the jug "Made in China to Sunbeam specifications". Definitely do not recommend this jug.
