QETTLE 4-in1 Instant Boiling Water Tap

QETTLE ‘4-in-1’

  • 100˚C BOILING WATER: QETTLE dispenses water at 100˚C, so you really can make that perfect cuppa! Other systems can only manage to dispense water up to 98˚C
  • LARGE CAPACITY 4 LITRE BOILER: Quality, fully insulated, CE approved 4 litre boiler tank fits neatly under your kitchen sink providing up to 8 cups of boiling water in one go | 10 minute recovery time | Tank dimensions: 230mm x 182mm x 354mm
  • COST & ENERGY EFFICIENT: No need to wait for the kettle to boil, use more water than you need, or waste energy – around just 3p a day to run if left on standby.
  • WATER FILTER SYSTEM INCLUDED: Works to minimise limescale – protecting the tap’s boiler tank | Unlimited flow of filtered cold water | Compact, easy-change filter cartridge housing | Replace the filter cartridge every 6 months – a built in LED lets you know the filter cartridge needs to be replaced.
  • SAFE TO USE: Supplied with a safety clip which makes activating the boiling water impossible | Robust lever handle must be pushed downwards to disengage a safety catch before the flow of boiling water can be dispensed.

Multi-tasking, multi-patented QETTLE is the tap that everyone’s talking about! QETTLE dispenses four flows of water – true, 100°C boiling water, cold filtered drinking water, plus normal hot and cold flows. It comes as a complete system that includes its 4 litre boiler tank and filter system and is simple to install.

QETTLE is also safe. All taps come with a safety clip, which, when in place, makes it impossible for boiling water to be activated. Making instant cups of tea and coffee with your QETTLE is just the beginning. And, once you have a QETTLE, you’ll wonder how you managed without it… From speeding up pans of water for pasta, rice and noodles to degreasing roasting trays, making stock and gravy and blanching veggies… It really is indispensable.

I have been using my Qettle tap for nearly a year now and thoroughly recommend. Would not go back. Even my kitchen fitter was impressed. He has fitted other brands at twice the price and said the quality was just as good.

Reasons to Upgrade

For instant hot boiling water for drinks and food preparation with out having to boil or need a kettle ever again.

Boiling hot water taps and hot water taps are good if you’ve got food preparation supplies at a moments notice or entertaining friends. It’s like having a kettle on the go all the time but much quieter and cheaper, and without the time factor involved while you wait for the old-fashioned appliance to boil. It’s also a considerably easier option than an instant hot water kettle, useful that they are.

Most boiling water taps and hot water taps can replace the setup you currently have in your kitchen, others are more of an extra add on to an existing kitchen layout. Either way, they are great for making instant cups of tea and coffee, as well as being invaluable for faster food preparation and for friends coming over.

  1. Plumber installed so I don’t know about “Easy to install” but they did not complain. The only thing bad about this tap is when you go somewhere with a kettle, and have to wait, wait, wait for the kettle to boil. Will easily fill a pan with boiling water to speed up cooking. Cartridge is easy to change and is a better solution than britta water filters. Boiling water is dispensed and can splash spots onto your hand when filling a mug etc

  2. The best kept secret!!!!
    So its hard to find anything on Qettle! Even searching google. BUT when you look up Greg Rowe you find out some interesting things… They are a UK based tap manufacturer who own the patents on a number of tap designs they make for other people.
    Qettle is an entry level tap using their patent. Entry level because the tap is not made of stainless steel or made in their uk factory! BUT I can let that slip for the significantly cheaper price than the higher quality product that is made for Franke. (the omni)
    So several key points… its a boiling water tap so water is HOT.
    You need space under the cupboard… measure it and also make sure you have enough room above the waste pipe for the venting pipe.
    You need to have a mains supply to take 10Amps so dont put on same circuit as the dishwasher or washing machine if they are in the kitchen… you will trip a circuit breaker.
    FItting it took about 4 hours but that was because I needed an hour to do the electrics and an hour to redo the water pipes in a better configuration.
    The water filter was minutes to fit and the vent pipe was a bugger and it took a little rethink to put that in.
    The tap dropped straight into the origional hole which was a standard 34mm bore in granite (wasnt looking forward to enlarging the hole!) BUT read the instructions… there is a correct order to thread the pipes so they all go through!

    Taps been running now for nearly a week. Works perfectly.
    Because it is boiling water you need to be careful, it will ‘spil’ and ‘gurgle’ if you turn the hot on to full power right away.
    Flow people have commented on, I get a good flow on the mains hot and cold. I didnt check the pressure but did look at the time to pour a liter on the filter side.
    Im getting about 10 second per liter on filtered cold and about 16 second per liter on boiling BUT does slow down on the second liter… which I would expect. For me pouring a liter of boiling water in 16 seconds is fast enough! I dont want it coming out like a jet and splashing everywhere.

    After the first week, I am impressed. For a tap which is basically the same design and the same guts as the Franke at nearly a third the price, who cares if its not stainless steel… you can by another one in a couple of years time!

    what a find and what a great secret!

  3. Bought this to replace my rubbish Franke Minerva tap.

    Much better in almost every way and much cheaper too. Very easy to install and all bits are supplied.

    Tap action not the smoothest like a Grohe, but at around £800 less, I’m not complaining. Replacement filter much cheaper than the competition too which always helps.

    It’s important to remember that all these taps do is the same thing i.e. boil water – some just cost 2-4 times as much.

    Too early to talk about reliability. Will update this review is anything noteworthy happens.

  4. Forget the kettle get a Qettle!!
    I bought this product after quite a bit of online research. I wanted a device to produce water at 100 degrees and also to have a filter. The Quooker and Franke both do this but the former seems to control any online evaluation and the latter seems to be almost exactly the same as the Qettle but at a considerably higher price.
    I’m very happy with my choice, with a couple of minor reservations.
    The product came beautifully packed and the components are of exceptional quality. The instructions are very easy to understand and installation is basically easy for anyone with a bit of diy plumbing experience; but this will vary according to the particular installation. The unit does need electrical connection and this is not normally found under a sink.
    The item is probably bigger when installed than you might imagine and there are a lot of flexible connecting pipes between the components. Planning the installation is harder than actually installing the units.
    In use, the item performs as advertised. The boiling water takes a little while to arrive at the outlet and it does tend to bubble and spurt when it is boiling. The spout on the tap is possibly a little too high as it causes considerable splash back at high water pressures and it gets very hot during and after boiling water delivery. It is a good idea to run a little cold water through the tap after the boiling water both to cool the spout and to avoid being scalded by any residual boiling water in the spout.
    However, these issues are easily mitigated through familiarity and the benefits of instant boiling water are considerable. I would happily purchase the same unit again.
