Features

Ready Hot RH-100-F560-BN Hot Water Dispenser SystemIf you want to have instant hot water just by turning a faucet on, this could be a product to consider. With this Ready Hot water dispenser, you can save both time and energy, which means that it is also a budget-friendly option.

Compared to other instant hot water dispenser units on the market, this one has a bit smaller holding capacity. To be more exact, its tank can dispense more than 40 cups of hot water per hour, while other products of the same class can provide around 60 cups. At the same time, the maximum temperature that it can reach is lower than that of other heaters- this one can reach up to 190 degrees, whereas some of the others can reach 210 degrees.

However, all of its other features make this unit worth considering having. One of its definite benefits is the fact that it has an automated tank equipped with a self-resetting thermal fuse. The purpose of this fuse is to prevent the tank from a burnout in case a sudden dry start occurs. You can choose from a dual hot faucet or a dual hot and cold faucet. You can also select the material of the faucet – Chrome or Brushed Nickel.

If you have decided to get this product, you will most probably be interested in its unit’s characteristics – it has a 2, 5 quarts stainless steel tank, and its heating element works with 110 volts and 780 watts. In addition to this, the unit is equipped with a stainless steel outlet and inlet tubes.

Reportedly, this unit uses very little electricity, which means that it is energy-friendly and that you will save money using it. You don’t need to buy a power cord separately as the dispenser comes with a pre-installed power cord. Recent statistics show that the flow rate of this device is faster than that of similar units –this will be of great use if you need to fill larger containers with hot water.
