The Megahome Water Distiller comes in different versions. The MH943SBS is the most popular one. It’s black with a brushed stainless steel exterior. Then there’s the MH943SWS which combines white with a stainless steel outer shell. And lastly, the Megahome MH943TWS. It’s also white but instead of brushed stainless steel it features a white enamel-coated steel exterior.
But these minor differences are only about looks. All three distiller models are 100% identical in their inside: They combine a 304 stainless steel boiling chamber, dome, and cooling coils with a glass nozzle and a glass collector so the water never touches any plastic parts. This is to avoid recontamination of the purified water which is the case with some of the cheap distillers on the market – kind of destroys the purposes of using one in the first place…

Megahome MH943SBS Water Distiller
|Material:||Stainless Steel + Glass|
|Output:||1 Gallon in 5½ Hours|
Most importantly, Megahome water distillers process 1 gallon of water in a 5-and-a-half-hour cycle. If you do the math, the maximum distilled water output per day is around 4 gallons which is plenty of water.
Speaking of math, a power consumption of 580W costs you 35 to 50 cents in electricity per cycle, depending on your kWh price. This equals $10-15 per month if you distill 1 gallon of water each day. Not bad at all compared to the cost of bottled water!
What will be removed from your water? Well, you’ll end up with almost pure H2O. And to prevent volatile contaminants from re-entering the purified water, activated carbon filter sachets are used. They’re coconut-based and also eliminate any unpleasant tastes and odors.
By the way, the filter housing comes with a glass insert – think recontamination.
On top of that, usage can’t get any easier. Simply fill the boiling chamber and hit the start button. The distiller will automatically shut off when it’s done.
Setting up a Megahome distiller really is child’s play. Here’s what you need to do:
To get the most out of a Megahome water distiller and increase its lifetime, cleaning the stainless steel boiling chamber on a regular basis is recommended. You should follow the procedure at least once per month. Although, you can do this much more often if you want:
What you shouldn’t do is use an abrasive brush or cleaner. This could damage the surface of the stainless steel tank and eventually cause leakage.
As far as the activated carbon filter sachets are concerned, they last around 30 gallons before they need replacement. A good indicator that it’s time for a new one is when you notice a strange taste or odor in your water. Cost? They’re super affordable so no need to be stingy!

Overall customer feedback is extremely positive. However, a few people complained about the following issues:
Distillation processes almost always achieve equal results in terms of contaminant reduction rates. However, not all water distillers are created equal. Megahome water distillers completely avoid leaching of chemicals and other substances into the water by making sure it only gets in touch with stainless steel and glass.
People say it’s a great purchase, everything works exactly as advertised, and the water tastes very pure. 5 stars!
