Hot Water Dispenser
The future is here! I was told there are schools now without black boards, simply large screens that are interactive like your tablets and smart phones! Do you remember Captain Picard on Star Trek: “one earl grey, hot”, he says to the computer in his room, and a little door slides open to reveal a hot tea? Well, we aren’t there just yet, but the time has come to have an instant cup of something hot right at your own sink. I am old fashioned, and I love my Kettle.
And you may ask; why should you should consider a Hot water dispenser?
Are you one of those people who have a plug in kettle that you fill up, that sits on your kitchen counter, or are you a person who loves the stove top model that whistles when boiling? Or, you might be someone who does not even bother and goes straight to the ‘fill the mug with water’ and puts it in the microwave. Or maybe you are so old school that you just take any old pot, fill it with water and boil it!
I’m not here to convince you to change your ways! Just to enhance your decision making and expand your options.
If you are in a ‘home improvement’ phase and redesigning your office or kitchen space, you might want to treat yourself to something lovely, modern and new for your kitchen. After all, this is where you spend most of your time with family and friends.
And if you have decided to modernize, you will be faced with the modern minimalist idea of instant Hot Water Dispensers.
There are many reasons to consider:
Maybe you want to be more;
Environmentally friendly: Who doesn’t want to reduce the amount of electricity usage in their home? Hot water dispensers heat the filtered water in seconds, reducing the energy needed for a kettle to boil.
Saving time: No longer is the expression ‘A watched pot never boils’ going to mean anything!
Hot water dispensers work by heating up filtered water quickly, without having to wait around. And guess what? It saves you from pouring water in a cup! We tend to fill kettles up with more water than needed, this uses more water, which leads to more
Energy Wasting: energy being used to boil water! Some say can save you approximately fifty percent of energy compared to a standard kettle.
Wasting water: With hot water dispensers at a twist of a knob or a pull of a lever, you are able to control how much water you need without the worry of wasting excess water.
Note: Normal hot water taps are around 120 degrees, whereas in a hot water dispenser they are released at 190 degrees, which is ideal for making soups, coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
How Does an Instant Hot Water Heater Work?
Instant hot water heaters basically work as small electric hot water tanks. Water passes through a small tank that is heated with an electric element to 190 degrees, then through a small water line that runs from the pipe to its own faucet.
-The capacities range from 1/3 to 1/2 gallon, and the heating elements vary from 500 to 1500 Watts.
-Most instant hot water tanks have a thermostat that allows you to adjust the temperature.
-You can get an integrated water filters that provide pre-chilled filtered drinking water: so hot and cold water.
- You will need to hire a plumbing contractor to drill a hole in your sink. We think hiring a professional is always advisable!

Here it is: hot water dispensers review
Note: In my opinion: this does that work for all occasions, you may need to revert to the old fashioned method, if you want to boil a large amount of water for cooking, need to fill a tea pot, a large coffee press or you have a round of hot drinks. The water flow of Hot Water Dispensers are slower than typical water faucets.
A FINAL Note: Hot water dispensers are seen in many offices and work environments as a modern, convenient way to serve their employees with filtered water, since the staple beverage for many hard working individuals is either tea or coffee.
