A countertop water cooler dispenser is a perfect option for homes or offices with limited space. This KUPPET model is one of the affordable countertop water coolers on the market. It’s not the best, but for the price, it’s worth a look.

Functions

In terms of functionality, this unit gives you two output options, hot or cold water. KUPPET dispensers are known for delivering very hot water, and this countertop model is no different.

It sufficiently heats the water to very high temperatures (up to 203oF). The hot water comes out way hotter than what you would get from many freestanding water coolers. Moreover, the reservoir for the hot water is large, capable of providing up to 5 liters of heated water at a time.

However, the same can’t be said for the cold water function. Based on a majority of users, getting cold water isn’t a guarantee with this unit. It sometimes comes out cold but for the most part, it’s cool, much the same temperature as tap water.

The tank meant for cold water is also small. It can provide just 0.65L of cold water at a time which is really low, especially since the unit can take up to 40 minutes to cool water.

The heating process is reasonably fast. It takes less than 10 minutes to get the hot water ready for dispensing. The flow rate on the hot water spout is equally fast but a bit slow on the cold water spout.

The unit does work silently enough not to cause much disturbance. Only minimal noise is produced when cooling or heating which is a good thing when using it in workplaces.

Operation

Push-down levers have been employed for dispensing water hence it’s easy to operate this dispenser and the levers are sturdy for everyday use.

What’s disappointing is that there’s no safety lock on the hot water lever, so there’s a risk of small kids getting burned when using this cooler. Nonetheless, you can turn off the hot water using a switch at the back and the cooling mechanism too.

Another gripe we noted is that the LED status light for the cold water is wired wrongly. It shows green once it’s turned on then turns to red when the water cooling process is over. The hot water status light is correct though.

The dispensing area is sufficient for small-sized glasses and cups. Medium or tall glasses won’t fit there unless you tilt them.

Loading the Water Bottle

Loading the water bottle is simple but you may have to deal with the possibility of spilling some water as pointed out by several users.

The workaround for this is getting a second person to tilt the base so that you can mount the bottle with no spillage. The unit can work with either a 3 or 5-gallon bottle.

There were concerns about the built quality and material used in making the unit, as its body seem to be a thin plastic. However, it’s sturdy enough to accommodate the heavy 5-gallon bottle just fine and the base is pretty stable.

The unit is also compact and measures 17-inches tall which is a perfect countertop unit size for limited spaces. It’s lightweight and easy to move.

Verdict

To be honest, this is not the best countertop water cooler out there. Even so, it’s functional and of good value when you factor in the price. It’s a more suitable option for making hot water. Customer service and support respond well to claims about defects and other issues which is a positive thing to consider too.
