Although this website is about kettles, I believe that a hot water dispenser falls to the same category due to almost the same features as an electric kettle.
Recently one friend of mine bought one and I was very impressed about how easy and fast heat up the water. Now I want to buy one for myself.
This is the reason why I did some research an decided to write this post and put everything you need to know in one place for you to make the best decision for a good purchase.
Things to consider before purchase:
– how much water do you need daily
– if you have enough space to keep the device
– the design
-tank material. Stainless steel is the most durable
– enough place for the water filter and water tank
-low water indicator (preferably acoustic),
-removable drip tray
-easy DIY mounting
How does the system work?
The kitchen sink’s cold water supply is connected to the hot water tank mounted under the sink.
As you use the water, it’s replaced in the tank by cold water, which is quickly heated.
The water temperature is monitored by a thermostat that controls the heating element.
