What We Like About The InSinkErator HOT-1 Low-Profile Instant Hot Water Dispenser
- Though Amazon does not list it, the InSinkErator website does list that this model comes with a 1/3 under-the-counter tank. So no separate tank needed.
- We love modern design and look
- Longer neck compared to other InSinkErator designs
Be wary of:
- The plastic parts do not feel durable. In fact the plastic handle is said to break often (but this is easily replaced by a call to InSinkErator)
- Durability wise, this InSinkErator model is cheaper than its siblings and the quality is appropriately less than the other InSinkErator models. That being said, there are mixed reviews on the durability and generally speaking you WILL get a little bit more than what you pay for when it comes to the HOT-1.
- Unit may spit a little bit upon installation
The InSinkErator engineering is good to great depending on which model you get. With the cheaper model you still get good design. The durability is not as great, but backed by a great company you can get parts replaced fairly easily.
If you are in the market for an inexpensive instant hot water dispenser WITH tank, or you are interested in trying instant hot water out without spending upwards of $500 or $600, this is a great introductory model and/or inexpensive model to add to your kitchen.
What Buyers Are Saying
“We have used this hot water dispenser for over three years with absolutely no problem and I use it throughout the day every day. I drink a LOT of hot tea so it gets used all the time. I had the same kind at my other home and never had a problem with it there, either. I hate to see that so many have had a bad experience with it but it has worked great for us and doesn’t take up a ton of space. I couldn’t be more pleased…for the price, it’s my favorite kitchen appliance! …(READ MORE)”
“Our builder installed one of these in our new home 11 years ago. The unit failed after 3-4 years. I replaced it with the same model, for the simple reason that it made installation very easy (I knew that the supply line would be the right length and the sink hole would be the right diameter). The replacement also failed after 3-4 years. Unfortunately, the only model the hardware store had in stock was the HOT-1, so I broke down and installed another one. Sure enough, right on schedule, the HOT-1 that I installed in January 2008 has started to leak. It’s crazy to have to replace the HOT-1 every three years. Time for a serious upgrade…(READ MORE)”
“I actually bought this unit from Lowes and was a little bit worried about all the plastic. i had it for over 5 years but nothing broke. and i worked it good! it did do the sputtering and squirting thing but only in the 6 mos to year. mine died from the extremely hard water we have here, so i thought five years was good. the tank has a nice low profile and fit below my 3-bowl sink with all the other stuff that comes with that…(READ MORE)”
