Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MiniDriver Good buy for the money
I just replaced my instant hot water dispenser after using the first one successfully for close to 10 years. This is exactly the same model as I had before. The previous one became corroded and although I did disassemble it and did some cleaning, I was quite pleased with the performance. Corrosion caused it to drip and the seal where the spout inserts into the top of the unit finally gave out. I never had a problem with the heating unit. You were able to hear it when it was heating up but it wasn't bothersome. Pretty easy to install if your under-sink area isn't crowded. I absolutely LOVE being able to have instant hot water for drinks and clean up at the sink. I hope this one last even half as long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mas98110 Self Contained Small Water Heater
I owned this model 17 years ago but when it died I could not find the same model to replace it. The next model was an instant on model of the Insinuator line and it lasted 8 years, excellent quality.
This model is like a small water heater that keeps hot water ready for use. The temperature is constant and being self contained will not leak. The price is great and the quality is outstanding.
I gave it a lower score on quality only because of the plastic lever which will break. I replaced it twice it 7 years.so be advised to buy an extra now.
Other than that small problem it is a great unit.

This was my third hot water dispenser. All three same model. The previous ones lasted about six years. The only difference in this and the last one was the handle. The first one I owned had a sturdy plastic handle. Happy I kept the old handle when the one on the last one broke after a few years. Also, the washer securing the spout into the top of the dispenser tends to wear out from rotating the spout. Easy to fix when it happens. It's really convenient to have an affordable hot water tap. It reduces use of the microwave and running the hot water for washing small items. It's easy to replace but first installation may take a little longer. I recommend this product to anyone looking for the convenience of hot water on tap at an affordable price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DebH I have pursued this product despite how it works at my house
I love the ease of this hot water dispenser. However, this is my 4th one in about 10 years. While my sister has one that has been working for 8 years with no issues, mine seem to last only 2! I called the company to see if there were any issues that I should be made aware of, or if the longevity for my Hot Spot was to be expected. I need to say that the water quality was mentioned as a contributing factor, but my sister lives just down the street and we have the same water quality.
After several calls, and talking to several different people in the company, I was grateful that you heard my plea and provided me with a new Hot Spot. It's working perfectly...........so far.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by osbourne Great product for the price!
I bought this unit to replace the existing model and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to install. It took less than 15 minutes and we were back in 'hot water' business! It operates smoothly with a very slim and sleek design. The only concern / drawback is that the countertop around the unit gets very warm at times; something I wasn't aware of with the previous unit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rosie97 It's noisy
My plumber convinced me to try Insinkerator again 5 months ago. This is my 4th iteration of their hot water dispensers in 3 homes. I don't remember the other 3 being this noisy or messy. Whenever it reheats (which is several times throughout the day and night), it makes loud noises and spits water out of the faucet that can be heard several rooms away. And I'm always worried that the cheap plastic handle will break (the red hot water symbol is already rubbing off). The actual faucet is very attractive, fits well with the arched sink faucet, and the water is definitely hot. Even with these misgivings, I love having a hot water dispenser and use it repeatedly throughout the day, so I'm willing to live with the noise and sputter. But I will look for a different model and/or brand when this one needs to be replaced.

It came with the wrong factory setting so it took a while to get the temp set right so it didn't spew into the sink all the time. Once that was set right, it works fine.
