Hot Water Dispensers & Water Crocks

Now-a-days a hot water dispenser is an integral and necessary part of the fast-paced and modern kitchen. Eliminating the need to boil or preheat water, they facilitate all kinds of kitchen processes from preparing soups, sauces, gelatins and warming baby bottles to melting wax and thawing juices. Additionally, although most tap water may be safe to drink, water dispensers also purify the water of all of it’s unknowns, not only ensuring that one’s water source is safe, but also making it taste better in the process, thus eliminating the need for buying bottled drinking water as well.

Coming in a myriad of styles, from ultra-modern to the traditional water crock, they can range in price from $100 to $400, and as with anything, one should expect to pay more for those of higher quality. In general, a reasonably well made and high quality dispenser should cost around $300. Hot water dispenser styles range from low spouts, which utilize a twisting handle to the ‘gooseneck’ units, which are taller, and allow for the filling of larger kettles or cups. Most dispensers can be found in a style to match common sink fixtures, and they are also available in a wide range of colors and finishes such as white or black or chrome or brass. For these sink-mounted dispensers, the filter and stainless steel water tank attach beneath the counter, and with the flick of a lever or switch, they provide instant, filtered hot or cold water.

For those uninterested in the sink-mounted variety however, there are freestanding options in the water cooler dispenser, the more rustic-looking stainless steel or porcelain water crock, the portable hot water heater, and in some cases, the icemaker. The freestanding water cooler is a common choice for offices, and provides water in three temperatures: cold, room temperature and hot. They do however require a power source to use, and also a replaceable 2-, 3- or 5-gallon water bottle. The water crock on the other hand is only a 2.2-gallon container with a push-button valve and a wide mouth. It can be used with a replaceable water bottle or simply filled with pre-filtered water. The portable hot water heater holds 16 ounces of water and is similar to a coffee pot. In the case of icemakers, (such as those found on many modern refrigerators) oftentimes, they will come equipped with a cold and/or hot water dispenser, but this is not always necessarily the case.
