InSinkErator H-HOT150SN-SS Review

Features

This InSinkErator hot water dispenser is capable of providing you with 60 cups of hot water per hour. The temperature of the water can reach 200 degrees, which is near-boiling water. However, if you want to change the heat for any reason, you can use the switch, which is specially designed for this purpose. You can adjust the temperature from 160 to 210 degrees.

Thanks to its satin nickel finish, this unit can match any kitchen interior. The hot water tank is made of stainless steel, which is a very durable material. In addition to this, the plastic tubing of the system is BPA free. Don’t worry that if you use this dispenser, the water pressure will be reduced as the flow rate at which the water runs is 0, 75 gallons per minute.

Probably you fear that your kids may accidentally turn the faucet on and get burnt by the hot water coming from the dispenser. The manufacturers have thought about this and have equipped the unit with an instant and self-closing hot valve. So if you want hot water to dispense, you need to turn and hold the handle. Some people may find this annoying, but it is necessary for safety reasons. Keep in mind that the water coming from the unit may be very hot, and you need to control it. Even 160 degrees, the lowest temperature option is very hot and can burn yourself if you don’t control it.

Installation

This dispenser is intended for a Do It Yourself installation. Thus you don’t need any tools to do it, and no plumbing is required. You just need to attach the tool-free connections the unit comes with. Besides, the dispenser is equipped with dry-start protection for safety reasons.

The manufacturers recommend you to put the faucet in a -1/4 inches to 1-1/2 inches diameter hole. As far as the faucet is concerned, you need to have 2 inches from the center of the hole to the wall so that the handle can make a full quarter-turn. You also need to make sure that the counter is not more than 2 inches thick.

Keep in mind that this system requires an AC outlet that is not switched. There won’t be any need to buy a power cord as the system comes with one. You also need to provide a dedicated control valve with compression fitting and a T-fitting. Remember to unplug the dispenser when you aren’t at home for a long time, for example, when you go on vacation.
