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.

Keurig not fast enough

You are drinking a piping hot beverage of a gazillion varieties in 90 seconds...

Instant hot for tea and coffee


While I am deciding whether I want to replace my 3rd Insinkerator, I am using the Keurig as a hot water dispenser. It works fine and is not particularly slow. Just cycle it with the brew chamber empty. Yes those instant hot water makers can cause plenty of damage when the tanks rupture over a weekend and no-one is around to catch it until Monday morning. Last one I was involved with was about $50,000 worth of damage to an office suite. Fortunately, none of mine at home have split, just leaked.

DUH! I know all about the Keurig and cycling it with an empty brew chamber. To slow for the old lady. Besides instant hots are cool.

Duh! Glad you know all about it. Instant hots are so cool that I've had three that failed. The last one didn't make it 2 years. Not an especially good track record in my book.

"Different strokes for different folks". That's what makes us unique just like snowflakes all different.
