This Sunbeam Water Cooler is very handy. It features hot and cold water and a tiny fridge on the bottom. I use it mostly for cold water, though. I don't even have the hot water part hooked up because I just don't have the occassion to use it, so I thought I'd save the energy and just not hook it up. My son uses the bottom fridge to keep his soda and juice boxes cold and really likes having a little fridge to call his "own". This cooler has really been a life saver. We would fill up water jugs and keep them in our big refridgerator so we'd have access to cold water all the time. This took up valuable space in the fridge as well as being so time consuming. Now, about once a week, we change the bottle on top of this cooler and we forget about it. We have nice cold fresh water at our fingertips any time we want it. I believe the jug holds about 5 gallons of water.
