Megahome Deluxe Water Distiller

A while back we were sent a Megahome Deluxe Water Distiller to test and review. This was one product that both myself and Mr.H were keen to put to test. We live in an area where the water is hard and has a chemical taste to it. And we wanted to test how effectively the distiller would work for us. Before I move on to our experience, let me share some information about distillation.

The basic principle of distillation is that water is boiled into steam and then cooled down turning it into pure water. The advantages of distillation are: sterilized (100% boiled), safe and pure water.

The distiller arrived well-packaged and was easy to put together. Included in the box were:

  • The main distiller body
  • The distiller top
  • A glass bottle accessory kit
  • Power cord
  • Activated charcoal sachets and
  • 250gms of cleaner

Megahome distiller | Set up and usage


The glass bottle comes with a detachable handle which had to be assembled. It was quite simple and easy. Next we had to place one of the activated charcoal sachets in the nozzle and clip it in place. Before using the distiller for the first time, the distiller body has to be cleaned with dish soap and warm water. Once this was done, we filled up the distiller tank with tap water upto the 'Full' mark. Then we made sure that the nozzle and the spout of the water container were aligned to ensure that there was no water leaking.

Once all this was in place, we inserted the two power cords into their respective sockets and turned the main power switch on. There is also a 'reset' button on the distiller but this is not to be used during the first distillation. In subsequent usages, you will have push the rest button to start the distillation.

It takes around 5-6 hours for the distiller to produce 4 litres of pure, distilled water.

After distillation, the unit turns off automatically. You should allow the main unit to cool down for atleast half an hour before removing the top. This is to avoid getting scalded by the steam.

Our experience with the Megahome Water Distiller


The distiller is very easy to use. When we used it for the first time, we were shocked to see the residue left behind in the tank after the distillation. We knew our area receives hard water but to see the brown residue (with unpleasant smell) left behind was appalling. That was enough to convince us to use the distiller going forward.

The distilled water definitely tastes different than the tap water and is lovely to drink. I think the activated charcoal does its work here - it ensures that odours are removed and that the water tastes better.

We like the idea/concept of the water distiller and will continue to use it.

The distiller’s steam tank and all the condensing coils are made out of stainless steel while the plastic components are made out of food-grade material which is also BPA-free. So, it scores full marks for the construction quality. It is very easy to use. And the cleaning instructions provided in the user manual are simple to follow as well. The only drawback would be the distiller's size which might be an issue in a small space.

Other than that, we are totally impressed with the Megahome Water Distiller. It is perfect for small households like ours.

It retails at £219.99 but is currently on offer for £154.95 at www.megahome-distillers.co.uk
