# 5 reasons why we love 3M Hcd2 Filtered Water Dispenser


Almost every household has at least one 3M product. I looked around my home and found 3M Post-it® notes, Command™ damage-free utility hooks, polarizing lamp, various Scotch-Brite® cleaning products, Nexcare™ first-aid products, and N95 face mask.

3M is a leading global supplier of innovative products that are making lives easier and better. In our work, in our home and in our life, 3M is everywhere. That being said, 3M has always been one of my most trusted brands for high quality and innovative household products.

In fact, one of the most important “must-have” items for my new home is the 3MTM Hot, Cold and Room Temperature Filtered Water Dispenser. Why? Simply because clean water is the most essential thing in my life and my home. With the 3MTM Filtered Water Dispenser, everyone at home enjoys cleaner, clearer and better tasting water at any time of the day. Above all, we get instant hot, cold and room temperature water at just a touch of a button.

We’ve been using it for a month now, and it has since become an indispensable item in my household. Everyone is loving it! Here are FIVE reasons why we love our new 3MTM Filtered Water Dispenser.

1. Proven Filtration Technology

First of all, the most important consideration when selecting a water filter is its filtration technology. The new 3MTM Hot, Cold and Room Temperature Filtered Water Dispenser uses a miniaturised 3M filter based on proven filtration technology with more than 75 years of history.

Made in USA, the 3MTM AP2-G Filter uses carbon block technology that efficiently reduces and inhibits chlorine taste and odour, slime and rust, 99.95% of Protozoan cysts (cause diarrhea in humans), lead and volatile organic compounds, and scale formation in hot water applications. Most importantly, it maintains the pH value of water supplied by the PUB at 7.5 – 8.3.

As an added protection, there is a UV lamp that inactivates the pathogenic bacteria such as E-coli, and sterilizes our drinking water up to 99.9%.

2. Convenient & Save Space

The second major draw point is the convenience of using it. 3MTM Hot, Cold and Room Temperature Filtered Water Dispenser is ONE MACHINE that replaces my kettle, pitcher, water containers, mineral water and hot water flask. No more boiling, cooling, storing and washing, it saves me precious time!

How amazing it is? I’ll show you.

Now, I can finally get rid of these ugly things in my kitchen!

With 3MTM Filtered Water Dispenser, this routine has become a history. Haha! I can “magic” it with just a touch of a button. No more kettle, hot water flask and water containers on my kitchen countertop and fridge.

3. Easy to use

Nobody likes complicated machines. The good news is the 3MTM Hot, Cold and Room Temperature Filtered Water Dispenser is very easy to use, you don’t even need to read its operating instructions!

There are three selection modes identified by colours – RED for hot water, BLUE for cold water andGREEN for room temperature/ambient water (press the COLD/AMBI. button to switch between the two water temperatures). Just tap the respective buttons to enter the selection mode, and press the water dispensing button to dispense water into cups or bottles.

Yes, simple as that! Even Edison knows how to use it like a pro!

I absolutely love the convenience of having hot water any time for a cup of hot coffee. On the other hand, Edison and V are thrilled to cook cup noodles instantly with just a touch of a button. When I have guests at home, I can serve drinking water conveniently. Obviously, the best part for everyone is the convenience of having cold water to quench our thirst in this hot weather.

The extended water dispensing space is truly a delight too, making it convenient to fill tall bottles (up to 25cm in length). Using the Auto Dispense function (by pressing the Cold/Ambi selection button for 2 seconds), it dispenses cold or room temperature water continuously until you deactivate it (by pressing the same button again) or when it reaches 2 litres.

4. Modern Sleek Design & Safety Guaranteed

3MTM Hot, Cold and Room Temperature Filtered Water Dispenser has a compact size but large water capacity. The total tank capacity is 8.2 litres (4.6 litres for room temperature water, 3 litres for cold water, and 0.6 litres for hot water). I like its sleek design, it doesn’t take up too much space on my kitchen countertop. The exterior is easy to wipe and clean too.

If you’ve young children at home, you’ll be worried that they might accidentally scald themselves with hot water. Fret not! You need to press the hot selection button, followed by the hot water dispenser button to dispense hot water. So, even if your kids accidentally pressed on either one of them, the hot water will not be dispensed. Thus, it’s a very useful safety feature.

5. Easy maintenance & affordable filter cartridge replacement

Every electrical appliance needs maintenance, I’ll be lying if I say 3MTM Filtered Water Dispenser is completely maintenance-free. Even a simple steam iron needs maintenance to remove the lime scale.

Thus, another important consideration in selecting water filter is its maintenance procedure and cost. In this aspect, 3MTM Filtered Water Dispenser totally wins!
