Kitchen Hot Water Dispenser What is a hot water dispenser? Kitchen hot water dispensers are miniature electric water heaters that service a single faucet, allowing you access to near boiling water very quickly. How do they work? A small tank below the faucet heats and holds nearly boiling water in a holding tank. The heat within the water causes it to expand, and it moves up in the holding tank where it is kept hot. Then when the hot water dispenser is activated and you turn your faucet on the pressure from water coming into the holding tank forces the hot water out of the faucet. How hot is the water it typically dispenses? Hot water heaters generally (the exact temperature varies on the brand and make/model) dispense water at a near boiling temperature, typically around 200 degrees. Advantages of hot water dispensers: You will save time making food and beverages like coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and soups by having hot water in just seconds Saves water energy because you are only heating the water you will use Some modern hot water dispensers have the capability that lets you to operate them from your mobile phone.
