We bought a hot/cold water dispenser like this at the Goodwill several years ago and it truly is one of my favorite things! NOW! When the 2 year old decides to serve herself to water and pour it in 50 million devices and get it everywhere....it's not so much my favorite!
BUT, with a household of six children and the purchase a some little disposable cups...living without a dishwasher isn't so horrible after all. (Just kidding it still is horrible!! ;)) I also love the hot water feature..great for individual tea, hot cocoa, hot cereal, instant grits (go ahead and cringe!).
