The Best Bottom Loading Water Dispensers

Everyone’s favorite office hangout place, water dispensers are more than just a convenient
device. As important as they are, sometimes it’s hard to use them at their full
capacity: they may be heavy, hard to get a grip on and many people don’t know
the many customization and options they have. Water dispensers evolved far
beyond a few buttons and knobs, and on this article we’ll tell you which are
the best devices to have both the smoothest office talk and coffees while

1. Primo B150 Effortless Bottom Load Water Dispenser – Free Standing Hot and Cold

One can tell only by looking at it that it’s a premium device. Primo Water is black,

high-end design comes ready to blend in the finest offices giving you the
sensation to be working on a top designer’s office. With this simple and
minimalist design, Primo B150 it’s not just beautiful, but also light: with its

partnership: you may use whatever you choose, since it doesn’t force you to
choose between one or another, which means you can satisfy your thirst however
you want to. Another fine -and healthy- detail: have you ever seen those nasty
stains on the end of the water pipes that most dispensers have? That’s a
problem you definitely won’t have with this dispenser. Primo is also certified

premium internal stainless steel water reservoir- will be safe in every way,
preventing bacteria growth all over it.


Adjustable cavity.

– Sleek and smooth design.

– Small size and light weight, it allows you to move it to your convenience.

– Water bottles are extremely easy to replace: you put the jug in the bottom and
you’re ready to go.


– While it’s true that once you go black you never go back, it doesn’t offer color
choices, so it might not blend in with the environment.

– Doesn’t have an adjustable thermostat.

– It doesn’t have a mild water option, so if you want room temperature water
you must turn off either one of hot or cold water buttons.

2. Hamilton Beach BL-1-4A

Hamilton Beach products claims to be “thoughtfully designed to make your life easier”
and boy, they do deliver their promise. It’s easy in every conceivable way. It
has push-buttons to control the desired temperature, be it hot, cold or mild,
so gone are those days of mixing “a bit of cold and a lot of hot water” or vice
versa. You can decide if you want a blistering hot soup or a brain-freezing
chill glass of water. This dispenser
requires no filters and also includes a removable dishwasher spill tray, so you
can clean it with no complications at all.

More importantly, the water bottle remains hidden, incorporating a sophisticated and
elegant design. But you may be thinking: “And how will I know when I’m about to
run out of water?”. Fear not: it has a neat flashing indicator light that warns
you. Hamilton Beach truly thinks of you in every step of the way, since not
only the jug is hidden from sight, but also has a simple and quick installation
feature, whose low height location makes it amazingly simple to move it and be
ready to go in just a few seconds.

Another important feature is that you won’t be afraid on “bring your child to work”
days: Hamilton Beach also cares about the little ones, and installed on the
BL-1-4A a built-in child safety lock, which prevents child access to hot water.
Pun intended: how cool is that?


– No filters needed at all.

– Energy Star and ETL certified, so it doesn’t waste energy.

– Built-in safety lock that prevents children from burning with hold water.

– Three options: hot, mild and cold water.

stainless steel panel that can be scratched during shipping. To prevent that,
it comes with a blue static film that has to be removed prior to using.

– Some users report that it fails to check when it’s done filling, that causes
water to spill out.

– Jug installment has its tricks: if it’s not done properly water pressure may
fail, suction become loose and leak out.

can turn it off and on whenever you want to, but you shouldn’t have to.
