Tiger Water Boilers Comparison

Like many Japanese cookware brands, Tiger electric water boilers and dispensers are known for high quality, durability, and features. We’ve already compared the Tiger vs Zojirushi models.

We have also individually reviewed three different tiger models: Tiger PDU A5OU, Tiger PDN-A30U-W, and the Tiger PVW-B30U

You can read the individual reviews above but we thought it may be easier to compare all three Tiger models side by side by side so that you can see what specific features are unique to each model and decide which one is best for you. For a summary, see below:

Tiger PDU-A50U-K Electric Water Boiler and Warmer – Stainless Black, 5.0-Liter

Tiger PDU-A50U-K Electric Water Boiler and Warmer

The Tiger PDU – A5OU Water Boiler features a slick LCD display that allows for adjustment of two different sleep timer settings – 6 and 9 hours. The display also allows for easy temperature settings control: 208°F /194°F / 176°F / 158°F.

There’s of course a reboil function to quickly bring water back to boiling temperature after initial heating.

It features an auto-lock safety feature, auto shut off, and a removable lid to facilitate easy cleaning of its non-stick coated and leakproof inner pot.

It’s also energy-efficient and comes with dechlorination mode. Honestly, it’s our favorite unit amongst the three Tiger water boiler models. Available on Amazon.

The Tiger water heater also has a capacity of 3 liters that is sufficient for multiple teapots. It features a two-way style water dispensing system – both electric and via an air pump method. The air pump method works without the use of electricity, which can help reduce your utility bill.

The Tiger dispenser also comes with a micro computerized temperature control system that can help heat water to the desired temperature with ease – 176⁰F, 194⁰F, and 208⁰F.

It also comes with dual-energy saving modes: Energy Saving mode and VE Mode, which shuts down the heater automatically after 2 hours of non-use after the water has been boiled.

Our Take:

Our choice is the Tiger PDU-A50U-K Electric Water Boiler. It has all the features, capacity, and design one could ask for and is well-reviewed on Amazon.
