Buy a V.E. Hybrid · Buy a Micom

The Zojirushi CV-DSC40 VE Hybrid Water Boiler and Warmer is more expensive than the equivalent 4 liter Zojirushi CD-WBC40 Micom Electric Water Boiler and Warmer. So other than the price, what are the differences between these two water dispensing units?

Just looking at them, you can see that the VE Hybrid model looks sleeker than its Micom counterpart. Also the water level gauge has been placed on the corner to make it easier to see from a variety of angles. Perhaps the biggest difference and the reason for the higher price of the Zojirushi CV-DSC40 is that it has Vacuum Electric (VE) technology to help it to keep water warm using less power. So while it does cost more to buy a Zojirushi CV-DSC40 initially, it saves money over the longer term by being less electricity intensive.

This does not mean that you should necessarily choose the Hybrid hot water pot. The cheaper Micom actually has some features that the more expensive machine does not have. The Zojirushi CD-WBC40 Micom has four different temperature settings: 140°F, 175°F, 195°F, and 208°F. While the Zojirushi CV-DSC40 VE Hybrid only has three: 175°F, 195°F, and 208°F. Some teas are better brewed at lower temperatures so if you have use for the lower 140°F setting then the CD-WBC40 is surely the one to choose.

These are just two of the most popular Zojirushi hot water dispensers available on Amazon. The Zojirushi CV-DSC40 has the most number of customer reviews and on average they are very positive. In the end, both of these machines do pretty much the same thing. They boil water and then can maintain it at certain temperatures. The slight differences that they have come down to a personal decision as to which one suits your requirements best.
