If you like the idea of getting a water cooler and want to reduce your carbon footprint this bottle-less option is environmentally friendly and easy to use. The dual filtration system includes a sediment filter and a carbon block filter to ensure your water is fresh for six months (or 1500 gallons) at a time. This cooler also has a self-cleaning feature, which sanitizes the dispenser to prevent germs and bacteria from getting in your drinking water. Should something go wrong, the machine also monitors water flow to let you know if there’s a leak.

This top-load water cooler makes it easy to see when water supply is running low so that you have time to order more bottles. The stainless steel design keeps hot and cold water at ideal temperatures, and it also helps keep bacteria at bay. Don’t worry about mess when you replace the bottles, this machine has a non-spill top to ensure no water goes to waste. Weighing only 29 pounds and measuring 12.6 x 12.6 x 38.6, this is one of the least obtrusive full-size options out there.

This is a great option for those of you looking to save space because it will fit right on your countertop—it’s only 13 x 12 x 19 inches. Save time waiting for a pot of water to boil by using the hot water spout; this machine will keep water piping hot at 180 degrees. Not only is the water dispensing area large enough to use most cups and water bottles—7 inches below the spout—it also has the convenient design feature that allows you to simply press your cup up against the tab to start water flow. If you tend to be someone who spills, the bottom of the dispensing area also has removable drip trays to catch any unwanted drips.

There’s no need to add ice cubes to your drink when this machine will dispense cold water at a refreshing 47 degrees, but if you’re more in the mood for a hot tea there are three temperature settings to allow you to customize your beverage temperature. The child safety lock on the hot water spout will ensure that no one gets burned, and the bottom loading design means no heavy lifting necessary. Whether you’re getting this for your home or office, the sleek build—41 x 12 x 13 inches—makes this an easy addition to any room.
