This is the cheapest it been for last 12 months. at amazon. Usually sells for around £630.

Bought one in April for significantly more, definitely a bargain at this price. Great high quality item.

Yes I know that a kettle is cheaper etc, but if you're in the market for an instant boiling water tap, then this a bargain at the price.

Now Cheapest - £540.00 @ https://www.plumbingforless.co.uk/kitchen/kitchen-taps/grohe-red-kitchen-taps/grohe-red-duo-kitchen-mixer-arched-spout-and-single-boiler-4ltrs-chrome-30058-000

I've also got one of these, been using it for a year. It's useful, and very well made. It's definitely not cheaper than using a kettle though for me, since there's only 2 of us in the house. May be economical for a family...but they don't publish energy information so difficult to work out. It's also useful since it allows you to put hot, cold & boiling into a single tap.However, you will need to renew the filter every 6 months (£60+ per time) and the boiling water only comes out about 92 degrees, not 99. But still £270 cheaper than when I bought it last year (which was half the prce of the previous year).
If you do buy it, go for the option with adapters (£379), you will need the adaptors to fit it to the UK pipe sizes.

Are these more economical than a kettle.... I'm worried about it storing boiling water. Great price and I'll think I'll be buying whatever the answer. Thank you OP.

I wouldn't waste money just to Boil water, what's wrong with buying a kettle it's cheaper and faster and you will save over £350.00 cold for me not because I don't need it because it's a waste of boiling water

Personally I think it takes laziness to new heights

Cracking price, I have the Qooker version, I love the fact it allows me an extra few minutes in bed each morning not having to wait for the kettle to boil.

Voted hot for the value of the item. Regardless of whether you think a kettle is better/cheaper you can't buy this particular item cheaper.

No way will it be as economic as a kettle. Says it uses a 4 litre boiler, so on top of its electricity usage to heat the water, which will be the same amount as a kettle would use (providing you don't overfill it), it will also be using a small amount of electricity constantly to keep the water in the boiler hot.

This would depend entirely on its usage , these can be more efficient than boiling a kettle.

How many of us will ......

Boil a kettle and only use half or two thirds of the water ? = wasted energy

Put the kettle on , then go and do something else while its boiling and forget it , then have to re-boil ? = wasted energy

These are factors that contribute considerably to the energy consumption used.

The convenience of having instant near boiling water is , for us as a family of 5 , is massive.
When cooking , adding boiling water to rice for example ,straight from the tap and the exact amount you need !
Having guests round and making 7 or 8 coffees , all instantly made where as before we had to make half then refill and boil the kettle a second time to make the other half , far from ideal really.

I did do the maths on this when we bought ours as energy costs have to be brought into the equation for anything like this , not just the purchase price.
My conclusion was that the difference was pretty negligible , could have gone either way. Not forgetting that there are so many variables that require an estimated guess on usage / current wastage etc.
You would be surprised how little energy it actually used to maintain the boiling water in the tank , although the tank is only a relatively small 4 litres anyway , it really doesn't take much at all.
I didn't buy it to save money , we bought ours on the assumption that it would pan out to cost approx. the same as we are spending now on using a kettle but with the added convenience and added workspace in our kitchen without having a kettle taking up much needed work space .

We have no regrets whatsoever with ours , one of the best buys we made for our new kitchen in fact ;)

Thank you for your review..

I was just curious on cost, it hasn't effected my decision as I bought it as soon as I'd posted my last comment.

Another plus for me is I don't like clutter on the work tops, so the kettle out of the way is another big plus.

Thanks very much to the OP and both of you for replying, trawling around for a price comparison shows this to be a very good price indeed.

I love the review - trying to justify the unjustifiable.
Of course it costs much more to run than using a kettle - its basic physics , you can't get heat for free ! !
You would not leave your oven on 24hrs and claim it costs about the same as heating it up a couple of times a day.

Oh and don't forget the ridiculously overpriced £80 filter you have to change every 5-12 months on these ! !

Remember you can buy an instant hot water kettle for as little as £40

If you want one of the then fair enough , but don't try and kid yourself they are anything but a costly extravagance
