Access to a stove for boiling water was something I took for granted growing up, but when I started my undergraduate studies at Harvard, I had no idea that a stove was not something that administration thought adult students needed access to! What was I to do? Cue the Aroma Water Heater, which fires up at the flick of a small switch at the back of the device and heats up to seven cups of water to boiling faster than a stove. It also provides a place to store a large quantity of cool or warm temperature water for when you don’t want to have to leave your suite just to get to a sink. Overall, this item is practical, compact, versatile, efficient (it boils water much faster than a stove), and easy to use.
