to make sure this fits.
UL LISTED / APPROVED: UL (Underwrites Laboratory) is a trusted independent global safety science company that thoroughly tests products to determine if they comply with important safety standards. Megahome distillers are the only UL approved water distillers available. If you would not by an oven or coffee maker without UL listing, would you buy a water distiller that is not UL listed?
PUREST WATER: Distills 1 gallon per/5.5 hours. Distills at the proper speed, removing unwanted toxins and contaminates.
BEST QUALITY: Full 304 stainless steel interior, water does not touch plastic.
GLASS COLLECTION: As the distiller produces pure steam distilled water, the water drips into a glass lined nozzle and then into your glass collector. The last thing you would want is to buy a distiller that purifies the water and at the same time contaminates it with cheap plastic parts. The Megahome distiller keeps your water pure and clean.
BEST SERVICE INCLUDED: Every Megahome distiller is backed by a 1 year warranty and the service and support you would expect from a top quality appliance. No need to worry about warranty, customer service, or parts, Megahome distillers have been on the market for over 22 years and are the top selling distiller on the market.

This wasn’t an easy purchase, Your return on investment will take about a year. It had been previously mentioned it will cost about .34 cents a gallon in electricity costs. So you figure .34 x 365 is $124, plus filters and cleaning supplies and the cost of the machine being $200, you’re looking at around $350 vs $365 for plastic gallons. That being said, you are not drinking out of plastic, or having to to leave the house. This Megahome makes the cleanest water I have ever tasted. I have had no issues over the past few months using it daily. I have two small gripes.
#1. This thing burns deposits on the bottom of the distiller. This makes it extremely challenging to keep clean everyday. You want to get yourself a digital timer and set it for five hours. This will leave just enough water at the bottom to prevent that from happening.
#2. I dislike the carafe. i love that it’s glass, but it leaks when pouring, so pour slow and steady.
I highly recommend this machine to anyone looking to improve their health and well being. It has provided me peace of mind about the quality of water I consume, and more energy to conquer my day.
I like this distiller and would recommend buying it. The only flaw is the plastic cap on the pitcher. They were smart enough to make a glass insert in the spout so the hot water would not pick up chemicals from the plastic and then they went ahead and made a plastic cap for the pitcher. All during the distillation process, the water collecting in the pitcher is hot enough that steam rises up and collects on the plastic cap and then falls back down into the pitcher. The fix was simple. I went to a glass company and for about $5 I had them cut a 6″x6″x1/8″ plate. I use that to cover the top of the pitcher while I am using the distiller. I still like this pitcher better (even with the flaw) because it has a wide mouth for easy cleaning if needed. Buying the glass didn’t break the bank and it was an easy fix.
It makes a gallon in about 5 1/2 hours. I use a timer to shut the distiller off at 5 hours 20 minutes which leaves about 8 oz of water in the chamber. This 8 oz contains condensed impurities. Better to throw it out than to boil it further. It also makes cleaning easier. I had a distiller a while back, and the noise from the fan is a little quieter than the other one (but not by much).
I am able to distill water down to less than 0.2 ppm. I use a PWT (pure water tester) instead of a traditional TDS meter. The difference is that it is more precise in the lower ranges (0.0 – 99.9). Traditional TDS meters do not read in the tenths. Just a note that the end result does fluctuate up to 0.4 ppm, which I am assuming has to do with other variables (i.e., water, how clean the chamber is before use, etc.) Also, I filter my water with a zerowater pitcher before distilling (I do not use tap water in the distiller).
I am going to try a few experiments to see if I can distill down to 0.0 ppm. I’ll let you know if I succeed.
I just thought I would repeat my response post to someone’s question about adding minerals to the distilled water: (copy of post below)
This is no down-side to adding liquid minerals to the distilled water. I add vitamin-c, magnesium and calcium to mine. I am not a doctor; however, this notion that drinking distilled water leaches minerals from the body has just got to stop. You do not (repeat – do not) get enough minerals from regular water to supply nutrition to the body. If you were fasting and you drank distilled water, then your body would start to deplete itself since nothing is being consumed. Guess what, the same thing would happen if you fasted and drank regular water. Water just does not hold enough minerals to make a difference on a grand scale. As far as trace minerals, you should be getting those from consuming sea salt in your diet – not from water. I hope that clears things up. I’m not a doctor – only someone with common sense.
The following pic is from distilling aprox 7 gallons of tap water
tap water 343 PPM
distiller 0.01 PPM

I add a little (about 1Tbs/gallon) mineral solution to the distilled water so it doesn’t leach minerals from my bones and shake it a bit to aerate it and I have the perfect mineral water with no contaminants. I recommend the “Multiple Minerals 18 Ounces” by Eidon Ionic Minerals over the “Ionic Minerals with Acai” because the latter tints the water red.

As others have stated, do not run it completely dry. I run it for an hour or two and then let it cool for several hours and empty the reservoir, put in fresh water, and start again. I plan to find a timer for it so I can run these batches for longer intervals.
Do not run it dry.
