Why Own A Boiling Water Tap?

We all know that the latest must-have kitchen appliance is an boiling water tap, but what is it that makes them so great?


Have you ever heard of the phrase “a watching kettle never boils”? Well, with our busy lives, it can certainly feel like an age to wait for the kettle to boil when you’re in need of your morning coffee, a nice relaxing cup of tea, or needing to rinse the rice straight after cooking.

With instant boiling water at your fingertips, there’s no more waiting around!

Tidier worktops

As kitchen space is at a premium - and worktops often filled with items such as toasters, coffee machines, blenders, kitchen roll and utensil pots - it’s great to get rid of the kettle to actually have somewhere to prepare food! Also, by reducing the clutter, your kitchen will look much tidier and smarter.

Easy to use

For those without a strong grip to use a full kettle, a boiling water tap requires no lifting or carrying. For example, the Ellsi 3 in 1 Instant Boiling Water Tap dispenses up to 98°c steaming hot water straight from the spout.


Boiling water taps are safer than kettles for the following reasons:

Carrying a kettle - with litres of boiling water - to and from the sink creates a terrible risk. A boiling tap has the water exactly where you need it, and in a smooth, fully-controllable stream; which can only be switched on by a patented safety-feature.

By ditching your kettle, there is no more risk of it failing to switch itself off when boiled, or an empty kettle accidentally being switched on, which can both lead to fires in the home.


With the first boiling water taps being in production 30 years ago, the technology and safety is tried and tested. In fact, as the engineering principles are based on a home’s immersion-heating system, it could be said that it’s been around for almost a century!

Environmentally friendly

Using only the exact amount of water needed, there’ll be no more wasted energy boiling water in a kettle that doesn’t get used. With the water of a boiling water tap kept in a highly insulated and secure container under the sink, the heat is kept inside, and ready for instant use.

You’ll impress your friends!

You can’t fail to be wowed by such a convenient, tidy, stylish, easy to use, safe and environmentally friendly great new appliance. It’s what everyone is talking about!
