How Does a Boiling Water Tap Work?
There are instant hot water taps and then there are QETTLE boiliing water taps. Brilliant, British-designed and manufactured boiling water taps that give you 100°C water. Not kettle hot, near-boiling or a temperature in the 90s, but a flow of truly boiling water that you can make a proper cuppa with.
Simple and safe to use, easy to install and cost-efficient, a QETTLE will soon make a kettle redundant. And best of all, thanks to its unique, multi-patented design, a QETTLE is affordable, too. Watch QETTLE's Todd and Dan to learn more.
QETTLE. Is your tap that clever?

Filtered drinking water
Clever QETTLE taps dispense filtered drinking water, too. Free from unpleasant contaminants such as chlorine, chemicals and sediment, you can fill up your water bottle straight from your tap. Cordials, jellies, lollies and ice cubes all benefit from filtered water, and its on-tap convenience means you’ll drink more water without even thinking about it.
Enjoying a glass of refreshing, perfectly filtered drinking water couldn’t be easier with QETTLE. Simply turn the tap’s filtered water handle towards you – no need to remove the safety clip – and fill. Easy! Consider adding a Chiller if you prefer cooler water.
Better taste, better smell & better for you
How safe is a boiling water tap?
With two-stage safety and an insulated spout, a QETTLE boiling water tap is reassuringly safe. First of all, there’s the red safety clip. When in place, it makes it impossible for boiling water to be dispensed. Highly visual and tactile, it provides peace of mind for children or more vulnerable members of the family.
Secondly, there’s a handle lock. The button on the handle must be pressed down at the same time as the handle is turned clockwise. So even with the safety clip removed, it’s a precise and exacting action to get boiling water.
And it makes QETTLE super-safe.

Connection to a mains water supply, with both the hot and the cold water having a pressure between 1.5 Bar and 5 Bar for a QETTLE Original, or a cold water supply between 1.5 and 5 Bar for a QETTLE Mini.

Watch QETTLE's Todd and Dan explain how a boiling water tap works, and understand the difference between a true boiling water tap and an instant hot water tap. A QETTLE tap is connected to an undersink boiler tank and filter system. Boiling water taps are indispensable for everything from instant hot drinks to speedy pans of boiling water for pasta, rice and vegetables. The best boiling water taps are 4 in 1 taps, which in addition to boiling water, also provide filtered drinking water, plus normal hot and cold flows of water.
Do boiling water taps save money?
Boiling water taps are highly energy efficient. In fact, a boiling water tap is probably easier on your pocket than a kettle. In standby mode, a QETTLE boiling water tap consumer just 0.8 watts of electricity per hour. Based on an average tariff of 14 pence/kWh, this amounts to a QETTLE costing just 3 pence to run, a day. So, making the equivalent of 10, 300ml mugs of tea a day could cost as little as 10 pence in total.
This is in comparison to a kettle, which will cost an average of 2.5 pence every time it is boiled. And the cost-savings don’t stop with boiling water. Choose a QETTLE Original 4 in 1, and you’ll be getting filtered drinking water on tap, too. So, buying expensive bottled water will become a thing of the past.
How much is a boiling water tap?
At around just over £500.00 for a complete QETTLE boiling water tap, QETTLE is much more affordable than other 100°C boiling water taps. However, our secret is the ingenious, fully patented tech inside a QETTLE tap. Unlike other boiling water taps, QETTLE does not use expensive, electronic parts. Instead, it uses an award-winning, British-designed mechanical internal system which significantly reduces its cost. Maintenance is simple and inexpensive, and no specialist servicing is required. We have been innovating multi-functional kitchen taps for over 50 years, and we are justly proud of QETTLE’s clever design, performance and affordability. Why not spread the cost of your QETTLE by opting for our new, easy payments with 0% interest?
Are boiling water taps safe?
A QETTLE boiling water tap could be considered as much safer than a kettle. Not only do QETTLE boiling water taps feature two-stage safety and a cool-touch spout, but, unlike a kettle, they are fixed in one place, cannot be pulled by a cable, and cannot topple over, spilling dangerous volumes of boiling water. All QETTLE taps come with a safety clip. When in place, the clip makes it impossible for boiling water to be dispensed. But even with the clip removed, it is still necessary for the tap’s handle lock to be deactivated before boiling water can be accessed. A small button on the tap’s handle must be pressed down at the same time as the handle is turned clockwise. Only then can boiling water be dispensed.
