Home and Living recently received an InSinkErator and we can honestly say we love it. No longer do we have to wait for our cup of tea by boiling water, or using the microwave to heat water for Jello or coffee or Ramen noodles! In this fast-paced world we find that this fast-paced access to hot, hot water is a real treat, and saves so much time. So following is a Product and Profile interview with Dave MacNair for InSinkErator, to tell you more.
Q.: Dave, thanks for visiting. Can you tell us what you do at InSinkErator?
D.: I am the vice president of marketing and business development for InSinkErator. We’re the world’s largest manufacturer of food waste disposers and instant hot water dispensers.
Q.: For Home and Living readers today we’re talking about the new InSinkErator instant hot water dispenser—what does this product do?
D.: Instant hot water dispensers streamline cooking and meal prep by dispensing steaming hot water on demand. The hot water is near boiling, 200-degrees Fahrenheit and offers endless uses. It’s ideal for preparing instant tea or soup, loosening food from dishes, thawing frozen vegetables or warming a baby bottle.
We just introduced the new Indulge™ Modern dispenser, a beautiful design that complements the contemporary kitchen décor that is trending right now. Modern features a dual temperature handle and comes in cool/hot and hot-only models.
“No longer do we have to wait for our cup of tea by boiling water…”
Q.: Can you speak to the installation for homeowners please?
D.: Installation is fairly quick for the advanced do-it-yourselfer but for someone with more basic skills, we recommend having your plumber install the instant hot water dispenser.
Q.: The style is modern and sleek, but designed for any aesthetic, would you say?
D.: Indulge™ Modern dispenser is designed to match the styles known as modern and contemporary and complements many popular kitchen faucets. Your readers will also be interested in knowing that we offer a variety of models to complement other kitchen designs – from traditional to country. With 11 designer finishes (including satin nickel, chrome, matte and gloss black, almond, white and more), homeowners are sure to find a model to match their kitchen decor.
Q.: What are some of the reasons that homeowners should think about choosing the InSinkErator instant hot water dispenser from the Indulge™ Series?
D.: Instant hot water dispensers have been called “The Next Necessity” because once people have one they wonder how they lived without it. An InSinkErator instant hot water dispenser is the perfect complement to a faucet but it works so much harder. Which one is perfect? As mentioned, InSinkErator offers a style and finish to match any kitchen décor, from contemporary to traditional, country and everything in between. But if the homeowner’s taste tends to settle on a contemporary, minimalist style, Modern is a great choice with its simple yet elegant look.
Q.: When we read the list of things to use this product for, we laughed because it is kind of ingenious. Can you mention of few uses?
D.: There are endless uses for an InSinkErator instant hot water dispensers –so many that homeowners say they think of dispensers as a second hand in the kitchen. Here are just a few examples of how it’s used:
- Preparing hot beverages like hot chocolate, coffee or tea
- Cleaning greasy pots and pans
- Opening a tight jar
- Getting stains out of tablecloths
- Removing labels from bottles
- Sterilizing a toothbrush
- Boiling eggs
- Cleaning the coffee pot
- Making instant rice and mashed potatoes, pudding
- With our hot and cool models, filtered drinking water is available on demand
Q.: Can you talk about the filtration system as well?
D.: The F-201 filtration system, which comes with Modern and all of our Indulge dispensers, is designed to remove chlorine odor and taste while simultaneously dispensing cool, refreshing water. It’s housed in a quick change cartridge with a 6 to 12 month life, depending on use. When it’s time to change the filter, homeowners can upgrade to the F-601R replacement filter, which also reduces lead, mercury, asbestos, parasitic cysts and VOCs for cleaner, healthier water.
As a convenience, we also offer a free email reminder service that homeowners can sign up for online, which notifies them when it’s time to change the filter.
