InSinkErator Instant Tap for New Moms

We've posted before about our affinity for the InSinkErator instant tap.  However, the lovely folks at InSinkErator were kind enough to send over another unit and this devotion was taken to new heights immediately upon installation.  To clarify, this is the home of a second time new mom, with a newborn and a toddler under the same roof.  For the uninitiated, that means the need for lots and lots of purified water, both cold and hot, meals on the table before you can say "I don't want pasta tonight, mom!" and most importantly, an abundance of coffee.  STAT.

The InSinkErator Indulge Instant Water Dispenser has found so many uses in my home and I'd wholeheartedly consider it a must for new parents. Here are just a few uses I've found for it just two months in: 
  • First and foremost, instant hot water for my beloved Starbucks Via instant coffee any and every time of day. 
  • Easy and fast filtered water to drink endlessly and quench my nursing-induced thirst, and a quick filler-up of sippy cups.
  • Readily available boiling water to warm milk for bottles. 
  • Instant boiling water for frequent bowls of oatmeal, and pots of aforementioned pasta water. 
  • Fast opening of stuck-on caps of jelly jars and maple syrup jugs. 
  • Instant, and much needed, cup of tea at the end of the night, without the risk of waking the baby with that pesky tea kettle whistle.
The design of the Instant Tap spout is sleek and minimalist and is a beautiful complement to my mostly-country kitchen.  It's highly unobtrusive and a pleasure to use, with smoothly functioning hot/cold levers and a high-neck spout.  
Just a few of the features, from their site: 
  • Hot and Cool — Dispenses near-boiling 200°F and cool drinking water
  • Graceful high-arching spout swivels for greater convenience and stylish integrated levers provide a dramatic look
  • The hot lever automatically shuts off while the Stay-On™ cool lever remains on for easy use
  • Durable all brass dispenser construction
  • 5-Year We Come To You™ In-Home Service Warranty
  • NSF® listed
  • For use with InSinkErator's Stainless Steel Tank and F-201 Filtration System (tank not included)
  • Available in 11 designer finishes: white, biscuit, chrome, polished nickel, satin nickel, French gold, mocha bronze, black, matte black, brushed chrome, and oil rubbed bronze
All in all the InSinkErator has been a fabulous addition to our newly chaotic home, and those few minutes I can save, while previously waiting for a pot to boil or constantly refilling my old Brita, are treasured these days.

I just love the 5 year warranty that comes with this product. I think this will help me warm my baby's milk bottles and make my loving husband a cup of coffee, and this will make my cooking easy too as it has a capability to produce near boiling water. Thank you for sharing this product, it gave me a good idea of what product to buy for our kitchen. Keep it up!
