Instant hot for tea and coffee


I want to install an instant hot water heater. I want hot water for tea and what not. Do they still make those? I have a bar counter top that I want to drill through the counter and install it. Anyone ever install one of these, or have any suggestions on how to get instant hot water?

My relatives come over from far away lands and only drink instant coffee(nescafe) So I need one of those point of use hot water dispensers. I am hoping I can pull the faucet from my bar sink and install the dispenser there. But maybe there is a safety issue with doing that? Those coffee machines are really good nowadays,in the past they were not so good.

InSinkErator makes a few models. You will need a power source under the sink.
Pretty easy to install and doesn't take up counter space

Yes as Eplumber says, InSinkErator makes them and they are available at Home D. I have lived in 4 different houses the last 40 years and have installed them in each house. My old lady drinks Tea like a fiene. I hardly ever use them. The one I have now the tank got a leak in it after a couple years I called the Company they sent me a brand new tank for free and paid the shipping. All the instructions are included just take your time and you should be OK. I have had to make my own hole in the top of the sink a couple times I used a Electrician's Greenlee hole cutter. I just hope you are capable in installing your own electrical and plumbing.

Trouble is those instant heaters tend to fail and the water damage can be spectacularly expensive. Versus getting an electric kettle (for around $30) and boiling a liter or so at a time whenever you need it.

The Keurig gives you almost instant hot water too, just don't put a cup in it.

Or do what you are doing.

Nothing like INSTANT hot water for, Tea, Coffee, Cup of Soup, Hot Choc., Instant Oatmeal, Bouillon cubes.

Never heard of any one having major expensive problems with instant hots you guys are all living in the past. How much can go wrong? No Power, no water supply, leak.

The unit costs under 300.00.

PS: I own a Keurig and a electric kettle and a microwave not fast enough, especially when your in a hurry and want to take a go cup.

Right but if this is just for visiting family that comes once in awhile and not for your everyday use...I'd much rather spend $15 than hundreds.
