Instant hot water dispenser,under the sink. What is the best brand?

eclectick6n2 | Feb 4, 2010 09:01 AM

I have had an instant hot water dispenser under my sink for about 15 years. My first one was an Insinkerator and lasted about ten years before it self destructed. I bought another and it got a hole in the tank in about 18 months. That one had plastic in the lining tank. My water started tasting like melted plastic. I bought another after talking with the company who assured me they had stopped using plastic in the water train.

I have a leak in my third one already(it has a stainless steel tank and I've called a plumber to find the source of the leak.No threeis less than two years old. My question is, is there a reliable brand out there with a stainless steel tank that I can believe will last at least 5-10 years.

I use this thing which dispenses water for about 10-20 things per day. I use it for tea, hot chocolate, adding more water to an already boiling pot, getting off tight lids, dissolving sticky gunk off utensils, blanching veggies,etc. I would like to have a reliable one. Any feedback from other users or cooking plumbers out there would be appreciated.
