Yes, it's a bloomin' expensive source of boiling water that also acts as your regular sink tap from the usual feeds - hot and cold - and I love the one we have! There's no need to boil a kettle ever again.

I know that you could buy loads of kettles for this price but according to the information they're meant to be more efficient than a kettle, and they're supremely convenient. It frees up valuable work top space at the expense of space under the sink for the boiler.

We recently renovated a house and I installed one of these babies. We paid over £700 for the brushed steel version, which was cheaper than the alternatives on the market at the time.

This particular model has the child lock, which means my kids are yet to scold themselves. In fact my 11 year old regularly safely uses it. It's also very good quality.

The one I have was not explicitly for the UK market; it had a Euro plug and 10 mm plumbing fittings, but both of these issues were easily overcome.

From my research, this is around price you pay for a half decent stand-alone boiler tap, so therefore, for an all-in-one, I believe it's extremely good value.

I would have bought this in a flash if I didn't already own one, so I thought I'd share it with you all on the off chance I may make somebody's new kitchen that little bit better.

Sounds dangerous

£600 to replace a £20 kettle, sounds logical.

'according to the information they're meant to be more efficient than a kettle'

Any hard facts to back that up ?

Isn't it switching on/off 24/7 to ensure those 3 ltrs of stored water are allways at boiling point...?

for this price I'd expect some kind of filter to it

alright sarcy

Looks a good price. Haven't seen any of the instant boiling water taps as low as this except for those that just do boiling water.

It does have a filter.

Around £40 to replace (every 3-6 months depending on use).

I'm failing to see the benefit of this myself..........

Pros. Convenience. This price is about £250 more than a quality monobloc on its own. More space on your work tops. More efficient than a kettle on its own, per boil. Instant hot water. Good price for a boiler tap. (the point of hotukdeals)
Cons. Expensive, an quality branded quick boil kettle is about £90.

I would only install one in a new kitchen for a house with that modern, groovy, funky, hip feel, you know the ones with LED mood lights every chuffing where. Then at least the cost gets absorbed in the with the trendy gadgets that you may want.

You're welcome. I'm happy I've been able to help somebody.

To be honest, lots of people have voted hot, but this is the general response I expected on here anyway.

As johnnie2020 has rightly pointed out; it's a good price for a boiler tap. Hence it remains a deal in my eyes, regardless.

Any hard facts to back up that it is indeed more efficient then a kettle ?

The OP is under that impression also, but I can't see any facts to confirm this.

I do wonder why you're so anxious for me to back up anything I've said and by the tone of your responses you'd think I'd posted some deeply contentious statement or something.

For the benefit of those incapable of reading clearly, I wrote the following, "according to the information they're meant to be more efficient than a kettle". I didn't state it as fact, so I don't really feel the need to back it up, but guess what, if you read the information provided within the link, it does say something along those lines and more. Funny that, isn't it? So, am I to I infer you want me to do your research for you too?

So, rather than thanking somebody for going to the effort to share something which others may find useful, you seem to simply bang your fists on the desks making demands. Please keep contributing because you're making it such a positive place to visit. No, really, you are!

Come down off yer high horse.

The answer I looked for isn't in the Amazon link, nor is it on the Grohe website (I searched before asking here).

I have looked at buying one similar to this before but the cons outweighed the pros for me, I was interested if this one was going to sway me into buying one.

You can infer what you like, I state again, I asked a very valid question, one which you still cannot answer.

I would love to see hard facts to state this was more economical to my needs to replace a kettle, but sadly it doesn't.
