The Farberware FW29919 water cooler dispenser is another nice machine that provides decent performance for the price. It’s an option that suits best those who are looking for an energy-efficient water cooler.

Functions

This Farberware FW29919 model is a two-function dispenser that delivers both hot and cold water. The unit uses a thermal-electric cooling method which is an advanced cooling system that’s very effective at minimizing energy consumption. Therefore, you can expect low power consumption with this unit compared to the other options that use a refrigerant.

In terms of performance though, the cold water produced is not exceptionally cold according to most users. It’s colder than regular tap water but if you dispense more than one cup at a time, it’s not as cool. You will have to let it chill for a few seconds after every cup.

On the other hand, the hot water comes out extremely hot and you can dispense up to 5 liters of hot water per hour which is faster than the Giantex EP22276 dispenser.

The water outflow is fairly fast and the unit runs quietly while heating or cooling and this is because it uses thermoelectric technology. There’s no compressor, so it’s a suitable option for the office set-up.

Operating

The Farberware FW29919 is simple to operate. You have two plastic levers for hot and cold water that need just pushing down to dispense water.

Unlike the Giantex EP22276 dispenser above, the levers are reasonably sturdy, and provided you don’t yank them around, they can survive for a long time without breaking.

The hot water lever has a childproof lock on top that you have to push back and then push down the lever for hot water to come out. It’s something that toddlers can find difficult to operate even though it’s within their reach since the unit is very short.

You can turn the hot water off from the back of the unit to make it more childproof when not in use. There is a switch too in the back for turning off the cold water when you want your water at room temperature.

The cup shelf is large to rest a container but the issue is that there’s not enough room under the spouts. Only small cups and glasses can stand in there. You will have to tilt and hold tall cups there to get water.

Loading the Water Dispenser

This water cooler stands at about waist height which is a good thing because it makes it easy to load and reload heavy water bottles. It accepts all standard water dispenser bottles (3 or 5-gallon bottles) and it has a place to drain the tanks completely for storage or cleaning.

The bottom has a handy small storage cabinet that can take about 8-soda cans. There’s a little plastic shelf inside which you can slide out to store taller items.

However, as the unit is very short, you will need to bend over a bit while filling the cup. Despite so, its compact and lightweight design makes it portable enough to be moved easily and ideal for homes and offices with limited space.

Verdict

If you want an energy-efficient unit, you can consider the Farberware FW29919 water cooler dispenser. It’s a worthy product for gentle use but certainly not for areas with heavy traffic.

It’s sold through a third party and there’s no warranty information which is one of its downsides as noted by some users. Both the supplier and the parent company as mentioned are unresponsive but the machine is good if it doesn’t become defective or shipped with defects.
