Lowest price ever. Amazon price tracker website shows an average of ~$200.

New model: "Date First Available July 21, 2020", though not necessarily an "upgrade" to the VE model.

Caveat: it's unclear if this newer model fixes the "melting plastic inner lid" issue. You can try to prolong its lifetime by not running it 24/7. For the VE model with this lid issue, folks were able to buy replacement parts after deterioration from 1-2 years of use. Their online manual states, "The lnner Lid Gasket may need to be replaced due to time and wear. We recommend that you replace it about once a year."

I can walk to work, why buy a car?
Why are you here then ? Personally I didn't see the use for these until I spent some time in my girlfriends household. With several people drinking tea, eating instant noodles, or even just drinking hot water all the time I can't imagine how they'd survive without one of these.
I think this product is for people who want hot water ON DEMAND.
You're not paying for something to boil hot water.

Great price for this new Microm model.

Ended up holding out for a VE Hybrid model sale...maybe it uses less electricity to keep the temperatures warm? For the life of me I couldn't figure out what was different/better than the VE Hybrid models.

Why do we need micom for water boilers? I get it for rice cookers where it's detecting humidity or whatever and making tweaks, but this is water. It's either at the right temp or it's not.

Im really confused by the "melting inner pot lid" defect in this model. Is this a problem endemic to these Japanese models?

I have a 3-liter one Made in China, and its on 24/7, and has not had an issue with me for the past 7 years. (However, the same model purchased for my parents died within just three years...would keep boiling and not stop ever).

I also dont understand the need for micom or induction for water boilers. These arent rice cookers...water does not need special texture or soaking time???

I would get a protection plan with this. I just had 2 made in Japan Zojirushi boilers failed within a year, won't boil.

We don't even leave ours on 24/7. We unplug it in the evening when it is nearly empty and then just refill it again in the morning.

Quote from chener :
But you still have to refill the water manually right? If I want hot water on demand, I'd want something that refills itself too. In the meantime, I'm very happy using my Krups electric kettle, which I use every day. Boils a cup of water quickly and I don't have to baby it.

Still, I'd consider this product since I drink green tea often and need that lower temp.
If you have more than one person at home drinking hot beverages, esp at different times, the calculus completely changes.

Clearly your made in Japan ones are fake. Made in Japan doesn't fail. It's perfect.

That's the real issue, Amazon has fakes to match the fake reviews. I just pick up my zuojueushi when I'm doing a stopover at Narita.
