I know I'm tooting a water heater, but it's the best $10 investment, seriously. I grabbed this one at Target and it has come in handy every single day. I makes my one cup of Viet coffee in the morning and I'm out the door in 30 seconds. I brought it to school today because we've camped out in Room 14 for the last week, and again, it's proven its worth. Hot water for tea, instant Starbucks/G7 Viet coffee, oatmeal, soup, and of course, ramen!!!
