I just purchased the 4 liter version:
Like the 5 liter Mike is describing, the temp. settings are 175, 195,
208, and boiling. I was going to go for the 2.2, but I figured that I
didn't want to have to refill it too often, and I wasn't sold on the
145 setting. I figure if I'm steeping a decent green, I'll just pull
out the old thermometer.
I did a little research and the going rate for the 4L is about $150,
while the 2.2 is about $110 (in the US anyhow). Pricey, yes, but I
think it will pay for itself in regards to the time I will save.
I haven't actually had time to read through the manual or set it up
yet, but I'll be happy to report back once I do.

Hi Warbler, and welcome. How do you like your Zoji? I love mine.
Mike or Warbler,
What exactly are you referring to? Zojirushi makes all manner of
things, I'm guessing maybe an electric kettle or some such. I own a
beautiful Zoji 10-cup rice cooker that I would fight to the death for.
The reason I ask, is that I have been looking for an electric kettle
for my office and I'm planning on getting a basic cheapie Procter/Silex
one but if Zoji makes a good one that is reasonably priced I may
I have owned two Zoji kettles, the larger 5L one (maintains 175, 195,
208 or boiling) can be seen at
http://www.pu-erh.net/toolfull.php?Tool=12 and the smaller newer 2.2L
one (maintains 140, 195, 208 or boiling) can be seen at
They both maintained the stated temps very precisely and they both
would achieve a full rolling boil. They can be made to maintain at
208 and then boil within a minute at the push of a button. Choose your
model based on the most common lower temp you would regularly use. The
newer (smaller) model has firmware that is marginally better. They are
not perfect, but damn close. I wish that you could dial in any
specific temp you desired, but you are limited to the three temps
supported by whichever model you choose. Like the rice cookers, they
are also not cheap, eBay had the best prices.
I am glad to hear you like their rice cooker as I have been
considering one myself. Which model do you have. What features did you
The Kamjove from China was also mentioned. That was my first real
kettle and it burned up on me in just under a year. The contacts in
the base literally melted down and burned up. Until that happened I
loved it for black puerhs that steeped at the boil, but you could not
maintain lowers temps automatically on any model I saw.
