Quality Construction

The Pure Water Mini-Classic CT™ Countertop Water Distiller is constructed of top-quality, stainless steel to provide years of dependable service with minimum maintenance. It is air cooled and equipped with a unique timer to stop automatically at the end of each distilling cycle. The unit has continuous self-sterilization when in operation and is equipped with a removable boiling tank for easy filling and cleaning. A safety shut-off switch turns the unit off should it ever overheat. The unit stores neatly on a countertop for your convenience. While in operation, the top of the unit should be clear of any obstruction to allow for proper air circulation. Each Pure Water distiller is designed with purity vents to allow the organic and inorganic compounds to escape. Additionally, an activated carbon post filter is included to aid in the removal of any gaseous carryover and to improve taste. The filter pillow is housed in a stainless steel filter tray, so your distilled water never comes into contact with plastic.

Steam Distillation & The Hydrologic Cycle

Just as Mother Nature takes ocean water and makes pure, rainwater, a Pure Water electric distiller duplicates the Hydrologic Cycle inside this appliance. Regular tap water is poured into the boiling tank.
A heating element boils the contaminated water and the steam rises.
The steam passes into the condensing coil, and the impurities are left behind.
A fan cools the steam and converts it to water — pure, distilled water.
A glass storage container holds one gallon of distilled drinking water and is dispensed through the pour-through lid.

How to Select the Right Countertop Water Distiller

There are plenty of countertop water distillers on the market today, but which one is right for you?  Are those cheap plastic distillers going to last?  Are they going to provide high quality distilled water for years to come or will they end up in a landfill?  Can it be repaired for many years of healthy use?  These are just a few of the questions you should be asking yourself when considering the purchase of a water distiller for your home.

We aren't shy to say that our electric water distillers are simply the best on the market.  They are made from durable stainless steel right here in the U.S.A.  These distillers aren't meant to be thrown away after a year or two.  Our products will last for years and we carry parts for discontinued models.  We are dedicated to helping you and your family to enjoy the cleanest purified water available, which is distilled water!

When deciding which brand to buy, consider the checklist above.  One big problem with some of the cheaper models is that the tanks boil dry.  This means that the unit essentially overheats every time.  Our models leave a little water behind in the boiling tank to protect the heating element from wearing out and overheating.  Many less expensive models will also rust with time, while ours will not.  Some other models come with a small post carbon filter perhaps the size of a teabag, are imported or even glued.  Why reintroduce contaminants to your water after it has been distilled? Our post filters are over 3 inches in diameter and are hand sewn in our factory in Nebraska for amazing results.

Take some time to read reviews of the competition and you will find that their distillers tend to last just a few years.  Also, people say that they have to clean their distiller after nearly every use to get good tasting water.  Cheaper stainless steel is used instead of the 304 stainless steel that we use.  Many also say that the water from less expensive units tastes like the machine.  Additionally, people complain about how loud these distillers are.

Pure Water Brand Distillers are made by skilled craftsmen who care about the quality of the products that they make.  We want your family to enjoy distilled water as much as our families do.  We take the time to make a product that we can be proud of and that will last for years providing you and your loved ones with healthy clean water.  It's true that our countertop water distiller costs $200 - $400 more than the cheaper imported models.  However, they will last much longer, be easier to maintain, and provide you with higher purity water.

In the long run, you will save money by investing in a Pure Water Brand distiller, not to mention save the environment from countless cheap distillers ending up in landfills.

  1. Best product!

  2. Love my Mini Classic. I had some problems with it not starting but Pure and Secure sent me an updated part which I easily installed and I’m back in business. One minor issue is the strong smell of chlorine. I thought distilling water removed all chlorine. All that’s needed is a carbon filter but I’m having difficulty finding a filter that you can use without having to use a carbon pour-through filter which put minerals back into the water. I use distilled water in my medical equipment and I can’t tolerate water with dissolved solids. I will update this post when I find a suitable solution.

    • Hello Jerald,
      If you have a strong chlorine component to your water but don’t want to use the post filter with the Mini, you could pre filter the unit through a carbon filter, that way any carbon from the filter would be removed by the distillation. Since chlorine is a VOC and will boil off at a lower temperature than water, you can also boil the water on the stove first to vent off the chlorine and then run the water through the distillation. We are always happy to hear from happy Pure Water customers. Let us know how it turns out for you.

  3. I recently purchased a Mini Classic late 2017. I have used cheaper Chinese water distillers with limited results primarily they fail in the first year. This time I spent a bit more money and purchased an American Made Mini Classic what a difference in quality. I produce 3-4 gallons per day easily and I could make more if needed. I like the auto shutoff feature, Excellent Machine. Don’t be afraid of the price as I feel it is worth it especially if you have previously owned a cheap unit that did not work well or failed. Use the post carbon filter supplied by Pure Water as it is better than the ones you find on Ebay. Follow the directions and soak your filter first for a few minutes. I replace the filter after 25 gallons. You will not be disappointed with Pure Water Mini Classic, worth every penny.
