Thought this a great price for a hot water dispenser, looks very similar to a Breville Hot cup which I have & use daily. Comes in 3 colours (Black, Red or Gunmetal) & is part of their special deals for May 5th but can be pre-ordered now for dispatch from 5th May onwards. I'm not sure how long the FREE del lasts for, so may be a good idea to pre-order now just in case it stops by then.
Fed up of waiting for the kettle to boil? This dispenser can give you hot water at the touch of a button.
Features
3000W
1.5-litre capacity
Non-slip feet, removable drip tray and stainless steel drip tray cover

Had a couple of the Breville hot cups and they were brilliant, but always seemed to break down after a year or so.

£22.99 with free delivery and a 3 year warranty..... Brilliant. Ordered.

Thanks for finding.
Seems like a decent price, but does anyone know how good this actually is?

Could be a false economy if it's a rubbish product...
These are around £35 in b&m so just got this offer lovely jubbly bargain heat added

Life is all about short-cuts. This is a short-cut.
Can you change the amount of water dispensed?

I think instant boil devices are marketed more towards uses where time is important, like in business. I'm intrigued as to whether or not these would be a more economical solution to boiling the kettle. Especially since these will dispense the amount of water you need, and you won't risk overfilling the kettle and wasting energy!
Had one a year and its great, not so good if you need 4 cups when friends come round.

I have the bigger one and you can on that but sorry I'm not sure about this one.

These devices are prone to failure, much like a Zip tap which is useless. And keeping hot water constantly hot is just energy inefficient. If people can't wait under a minute to boil a kettle then what can I say...
looks like the old Breville non adjustable water measure model

Not really, but filling and lifting a kettle can be for some and this allows my (older than the queen) grandmother to make her own tea in her room of her residential home. For health and safety they wouldn't allow a standard kettle, even if she could lift it.

Looks exactly like it.

Surely it heats the water using a coil as it is dispensed?
No idea what the stand-by efficiency is though, hopefully zero or <1W.

I greatly suspect this is the same line of reasoning Walmart et al use to justify cutting staff perks. I imagine there is a series of PowerPoint presentations (with comic sans font to lessen the blow) explaining how jobs would be in danger if employees took time to boil the kettle

And in such an instance, no problem. But I doubt that is the target market for this product...
Do not get this unless you like:
>80°c dispensed water
>water that fulls the cup - too much so that you can't add in milk
>95dB sound that fills adjacent rooms with "eeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiggghhhh - click"
>low tap - so have to tilt taller mugs underneath
Had the one up from this a few years now. Still working great. Looks good and Nice hot brew in 30 seconds. But this one hasn't got the stop function on it. Which is vital for this.

Rubbish
These are brilliant.
Water has to BOIL to come out of the spout. This one probably dispenses around 270ml of boiling water.
Did you know that reboiling water (as people often do with a kettle) concentrates the nitrates in water? You are only going to get clean water as only boiled once with a one cup. You can make 2 cuppas in less time than it takes to boil a kettle, & who totally empties a kettle each time?
The same amount is dispensed each time so buy a few mugs to fit.
A boon for the elderly or those that can't lift a kettle.

They don't stay constantly hot... They are instant boil kettles and that boil the water as it leaves the spout through pressure. The water in the tank is clap cold.

But your sweeping statement did not differentiate and without a larger market everyone who either needs or just wants one would have to pay more.

I only use mine for cooking veg and potatoes on the cooker as it then doesn't take so long to boil up on electric cooker. As for coffee or tea it was never hot enough. I did read on Internet that it's cheaper than boiling water in a kettle.

What if I want more?
We've got a proper Quooker plumbed in boiling tap and I was going to come here and say how rubbish this was in comparison. But, for £22.99 it's hard to truly compare with something that costs hundreds of pounds, they are just a totally different market.

Clearly there is a market for something like this and, whilst it's not for me, it appears to be a good price for those who want a very basic product for a cheap price.

A kettle is cheaper and more reliable. Happy to wait 30 seconds to boil water.

I too find them pretty good, but I must agree with how long they last.
First one bought in December, but was replaced under warranty by Amazon in July 2015.

Sadly, this unit still works, but I often find a small puddle on the worktop near the rear of it, which look like it's coming from the handle, so must get in touch to see if the warranty is valid from the original purchase or from when they sent the replacement.

Separated at birth (Breville VKJ142 Hot Cup on the left and the Aldi one on the right)?

I only pour in enough water for my usage - thus emptying the kettle after each use - more efficient + more control over the water dispensed

if you purchase one of these you will need a kettle as well anyway eg: making a pot of rice with high volume of Hot water - more efficient to obtain using a kettle eg(1): extended family all wanting a hot drink at same time

Also it boils the water in Plastic - Enjoy your hydrocarbons in your cup!

I hope it is Heat-Shielded - or else the boiling water will contaminate the cold in the reservoir to make Luke-warm thus higher risk or bacterial growth - hello Cholera & Dysentery

....And many more but this is just a deals site

Bought my One Cup in Aug 14 and it's still going strong after at least 3 cups a day.

I use filtered water in it, and water is soft up here so maybe it doesn't like hard water?

I find simply tipping some water out into the sink is a better option than trying to add milk to a cup that is too full to add milk!

Not as I hoped and more what I expected! Warranty from OPD!

Amazon CS told me to contact Breville directly, but after dealing with them in the past regarding a faulty £50+ filter kettle (a month or two outside of warranty) a few years ago, I know that won't end well.

I did say back then I'd never buy Breville again and look where I am again.oO

I prescribe 20 slaps to my own face!

So not instant then if I wanted a litre compared to boiling a kettle. I rest my case.
