Review and Buying Guide of Burco Cygnet MFCT1030 30 Litre Counter Top Manual Fill Water Boiler Stainless Steel

The boiler is very well made and until the last two weeks has been working very well, but now the re=set button keeps popping out.

Bought as a brewing boiler, it’s very good. This review can be taken at two levels, for general hot water provision for catering, or as a boiler for home brewing purposes. The unit is of a sturdy stainless steel construction with good quality high density plastic fittings, the photo is old the design is updated with the side handles also acting as a lid securing closure. 5kw not the 3kw as quoted elsewhere) is fitted with the base and accessed underneath giving the heating vessel a flat internal base with a slight recess to capture mineral deposits making it very easy to clean. With a 25 ltr water volume it heats from 10’c to a rolling boil in 1hr 10 mins (key staging on this is: 10 to 70 = 45 mins; 70 to 90’c +15 mins & 90 to a boil +10 mins). The unit has a genuine 30ltr capacity which gives sufficient head space to safely accommodate a rolling boil with water. The lid fits well with two vents and has a `lug and twist’ securing method which is very easy to engage. The tap is robust and positive. It is a sound well-made unit and would be a good catering asset.

This is a great product, it is very easy to use, it is so quiet and heats up really quick. One of the best products i have ever bought.

I’m very impressed with this. Bought it for church for the refreshments. Holds 30 litres which you manually fill. It takes nearly an hour full a full amount, but then you can keep it hot with adjustable dial.

Easy to achieve required temperature and adjust the control to. Purchased for our school events and it works very well. Did plenty of research and this one ticked all the boxes. Easy to achieve required temperature and adjust the control to maintain it.

This was bought for cleaning (boiling) bees wax for recycling. This was bought for cleaning (boiling) bees wax for recycling. It does the job perfectly and boils much faster that my original burco which is probably 30 odd years old and has about given up the ghost.

      Bought for the village hall to replace one of the same make,30years old. This one is much easier to clean as the element is covered & the handles on the side make it easier to move. Would recommend this product. Service was great too, arrived on the day stated & very well packed.

I purchased this boiler for brewing as although my current burco is still working it is over 10 years old and the element is exposed. The new one is every bit as good as the old one and in my opinion very good value for money.

      Having previously had one of these for several years in our church hall we replaced it with a new one. There are a couple of improvements which are very good. It is easy to use though my only criticism would be that the water pours rather slowly and the tap doesn’t feel too sturdy. Having said that we never had any problems with the old one hence the repkacement.

      Perfect all in one boiler for all grain brewing. I bought this to make all grain beer. This is fantastic for a 5 gallon/40 pint brew and with a little modification can be your mash tun and brew kettle for your wort. I fitted a hop strainer to the inside of the tap (the one from hop and grape in darlington fits perfectly – https://www. Html) – and have mashed the grain at setting 3 on the thermostat which is on mine a steady 70 degrees and then i drain the wort into my fermenting bin via the tap and sparge in the boiler – remove the bag of grain and replace the drained wort and turn up to 5 to get your rolling boil. After cooling with my home made wort chiller then all you have to do is drain out of the tap into your fermenting bin and then wash out the inside of your boiler.

    Just the job for when we needed it. As we were without hot water. Pity about the delayed delivery and a minor defect.
