Nowadays, having a water purifier at home is no longer a luxury. In fact, it has become a necessity for most of us.

Instead of spending hours a day preparing clean, safe drinking water, we can now enjoy it at the touch of a button, at any temperature we desire! No more filling a kettle with water, boiling it, pouring it into another jug, and waiting for it to cool down before repeating the process.

With a water purifier, you can prepare yourself a cup of hot tea or iced cordial any time of the day. And for parents, you can count on making the perfect bottle of baby formula milk every single time, no hassle at all.

That being said, not every water purifier is created equal. Plus, what works for one family may not be sufficient for another.

A water purifier is a pretty major purchase, as most of them come with a multi-year contract or a big upfront payment. That's why getting the right water purifier for your household and lifestyle is really important.

This includes finding a water purifier that not only fits aesthetically into your kitchen space, but also has all the features you need. For instance, a family of five may prefer a water purifier with a big tank, compared to someone who's staying alone.

Similarly, a family with a newborn baby may find the baby temperature water feature extremely useful, while a couple without kids may rather have an ice-making feature.

Ready to find a water purifier that suits your household and lifestyle? Here are five Coway water purifiers that you should consider:

1. Coway KECIL | From RM39*/month

There are four temperature settings to choose from, and it has a friendly design for easy usage. It also has nifty indicators that'll inform you of the highest and lowest temperature, as well as low water levels.

Interestingly, the Coway OMBAK was designed specifically for Malaysians after several visitations from researchers and engineers from Korea, who also conducted in-depth studies to understand the needs of local households.

One thing they discovered was that Malaysians enjoy hosting guests and family. As a result, they decided to equip the Coway OMBAK with a whopping 13.5L water tank, ensuring you'll never have to worry about running out of water.

Since Malaysians also like their hot drinks (like teh tarik) and cold beverages (like sirap ais), the Coway OMBAK comes with up to 50 water settings ranging from 40°C to 90°C, along with various volume settings.

Ever dreamed of having ice on demand, but malas to fill up ice trays and place them in the freezer? The Coway AIS was made just for you, equipped with an automated ice making function, saving you the hassle and time of preparing ice.

Besides that, ice can get contaminated with bacteria and may take on the smell of foods kept in the freezer. The Coway AIS is a gamechanger thanks to its sealed ice tank with regular UV sterilisation, ensuring you always get pure, crystal clear ice made with purified water for better taste. 

Similar to Coway's other water purifiers, the Coway AIS comes with a variety of temperature and volume controls. In addition, it comes with a smart user memory setting (MYCUP), allowing you to get the same exact water temperature and volume for your daily cup of coffee or tea.
