Which water distiller should you buy?
All the performance aspects are the same, across the range. There is no difference between the heating and cooling components of the different models (except the alcohol distiller which has a small difference in this aspect of the engineering).
- Top of the range
- Only marine grade 316 stainless steel in the world
- Only available with glass jug
This is our top of the range distiller. The main point of difference is that the stainless steel used for all components is 316 stainless steel. 316 is a marine grade of stainless steel, it is means this distiller will cope with highly corrosive or contaminated water sources like seawater or water from unsafe sources like a muddy puddle or a river. The 316 stainless steel is used in the head unit of the distiller and the boiling vessel. This is the World’s first and only distiller made from 316 stainless steel. Regular distillers are made from 304 stainless steel which is the grade used to make things like saucepans. Get this distiller if you want the very best or may distill a more heavily contaminated water.
- Most popular model
- Black or white top
- Glass or plastic jug
This is our most popular distiller. The main point of difference is that the outer is made from 304 stainless steel. This is in addition to the boiling vessel and head unit all of which are 304 stainless steel. This is available with either glass or plastic collection bottle. Get this distiller if you want a good distiller with an attractive stainless steel outer.
- Designed for clinical environments
- Stainless steel internal components
- Glass or plastic collection jug
This is our entry level model. The main point of difference is that this model has a white powder-coated outer which is preferred in a clinical setting. The boiling vessel and head unit are made from 304 stainless steel. This model is designed for use by dentists, doctors surgeries, laboratories and tattoo parlours or anyone requiring a source of distilled water. It is available with either plastic or glass collection jug. Some people also buy this for home use.
- Lower powered heating element for distillation control
- Internal sieve
- Only available with glass jug
There are two main differences between the alcohol distiller and a water distiller: 1. The heating element has a lower power so it takes a lot longer to do a distillation. 2. There is a removable sieve in the head unit of the distiller to catch any vegetable matter that might be present in the mixture being distilled. If you used this distiller to distill water it would take c. 12 hours. For this reason we do not recommend using this distiller to distill water. Sometime people think they can buy this distiller and use it for both water and alcohol and those people always end up returning their distillers because this distiller does not do a good job of distilling water.
Plastic vs Glass jug?The plastic jug used is made from safe, BPA free polyethylene. The glass jug design means that at no point does the water touche any plastic during distillation. Even the filter housing for this distiller is lined with ceramic to prevent the water from touching plastic. Get the plastic if you want to save money, get the glass if you want the best option and/or are concerned about your distilled water coming into contact with plastic.
Black or white?Both about equally popular and we seem to go in runs of one or the other. One minute everyone is buying black, the next minute everyone is buying white.
Two year warranty and money back guarantee.
This applies to all our distillers equally.
