Instant Boiling Water Tap


Boiling water taps are a kitchen favourite for good reason – they offer a sleek, stylish alternative to traditional kettles and save you money and energy. They dispense hot-boiling water on demand, and typically cost less than a typical kettle to run, with some as low as 3p a day for standby.

These taps are designed to dispense water at a true boiling point (100 degrees Celsius) and come with built-in safety features to prevent scalding accidents. Most of the time, they have a separate button to activate the boiling water function that needs to be pressed with a double-push/turn action to ensure it’s only ever switched on deliberately, which reduces the chance of children accidentally turning it on. Similarly, most models also have childproof safety locks to stop children from fiddling with the tap and potentially hurting themselves.

They don’t need to be fitted with a separate boiler, as they use existing hot and cold water supplies from your house. This makes them a great choice for homes with limited space as they can fit neatly under your sink without taking up extra floor room or needing a separate power supply like a combi boiler.

We love this 3-in-1 tap from Quooker, which combines cold, hot, and boiling water in a single design that will suit most kitchen styles. It has a stylish chrome finish and a timeless swan-neck tap spout with a childproof double push/turn mechanism to prevent accidental activation of the boiling water. It has a four-litre tank capacity and is reheatable in just 10 minutes, and it’s an eco-conscious choice too, as its filter cartridges are recyclable. Instant boiling water tap
