Quality Product
I installed the Insinkerator air switch with this model. Easy install and found the unit to be very quite which makes it seem a top end unit. My wife loves how quiet it is compared to our older unit. I liked the ease of installation. One tip, when locking the top ring to install to the sink, use a large pair of channel locks to hold the disposal sink ring from turning while using the tool included with this model to lock the ring on the disposal. The lock must go farther than I originally thought. Everything is stated in the instructions but for a novice, you must lock the ring over a small like bump in the other ring. It was super easy once I used a larger channel locks to keep the entire disposal from moving in a circle. A plumber would obviously already know this.... not me... LOL

I have owned several of these over 20 plus years. The dispenser is an excellent addition to the kitchen. Over time, they do wear out. However, still a good value.

The Insinkerator is a replacement for another brand of instant hot water tank and dispensor. A number of years back we had an Insinkerator and loved it. Went with a different brand because we liked there dispenser/faucet and it matched the kitchen faucet better. I regretted that decision. When the other brand's tank started leaking, I replaced everything with Insinkerator (tank, filter, and dispenser). Better water temp control, larger capacity, faster heating on refill, quieter, and smoother operation of faucet. We use this product every day--love it for hot drinks and starting any cooking with hot water. Love the 3 yr warranty of Insinkerator

This hot water tank/filter and insinkerator faucet feature are exactly what I've been looking for virtually all of my life. To be able to make instant tea or instantly blanch asparagus or add hot water to anything else I could think of to reduce my cook time is what I've always wanted as a tool in my kitchen. I couldn't be more excited to find a new use for it almost everyday.

I've only had this particular unit for a few weeks, but I had the previous model for 5 years and it worked great until about a month ago, then wouldn't heat the water above 160 anymore. Nowadays, 5 years is pretty good for these types of appliances. My only disappointment so far with the new on is that I had to replace the water connectors because the newer model uses a different size. I was hoping for "plug and play."

Many benifits
First introduced to this InsinkEator at work. And with over 300 employees this item was well used. I was surprised to see how hot water was coming out. Super hot. . each time it was used. I told my wife about it, as we used up a lot of water from sink to get hot water. Her reply was as soon as I get my kitchen redone. Well after almost a year ,out kitchen was done. We had it installed. Woohoo! .Our grandkids like it. our 17 year old made tea. and smiled all the while doing it. Waiting to have rest of family over to show it off.

Great Product, Minor Difficulties in Installation
We just moved to a new home, and installation of an Insinkerator Instant Hot Water and Filtration System was one of the first things we did, even before hooking up the washer and dryer! The connections from the Insinkerator Faucet to the tank and the filter are easy to make and clearly described in the instructions. The only hang-up is step 6, which simply states that you are to make the connection to the cold water supply. Knowing that there are probably many variations on the water supply in a home, it is understandable that Insinkerator is nor more explicit. However, getting the right fittings (a "T" to connect to the cold water shutoff valve, a separate shut-off valve for the Insinkerator system, and additional 1/4" compression fittings for plastic tubing that are not provided) required trips to two hardware stores to understand and obtain what was required. We had luck with a small mom and pop plumbing store, where we got personal help, versus a disappointing experience with a big box store on this hook up issue. The Insinkerator Instant Hot Water and Filtration System is a great addition to the kitchen, as water from the tap can be used to make hot tea, iced tea, or any beverage requiring hot water, and we use it daily for this. We also got the faucet that provided cold filtered water, which is a great convenience and improvement over the city water. Be sure and buy an Insinkerator faucet, as faucets from other manufacturers are not compatible with the Insinkerator tank connections. Our experience has been that Insinkerator stands behind their warranty fully, and will provide a discount, if an out-of-warranty system fails and needs to be replaced.

Cant do without this… seriously!
I have had this dispenser now since my last kitchen renovation, the lever stopped working after the warrantee expired , but they sent me a new one anyway for free. It is something that I must have in my new custom build, so I am buying it again for the second time with no reservations.You really have to own one to understand how many times you use it for tea. coffee, hot cereal, sauces etc. It is an indispensable dispenser. LOL

Indespensible In My Kitchen Sink
What I do know is when my old InSinkErator stopped working correctly, I immediately started the process of acquiring a new unit. Installing anything when upside down under the sink is no picnic but, it is relatively easy to install. The Company does treat you fairly when there is an issue with one of their products.

Great Instant Hot Water system
Although at first I was disappointed with InSinkErator due to the old unit developing a leak (fairly common from what I saw researching on the Internet), I was pleasantly surprised with the ease of retro-fitting the new unit. Many times a replacement appliance involves new mounting, hoses, fittings, etc. and working under the sink is not on my list of favorite pastimes. The instructions clearly outlined the replacement procedure which was a snap - the new unit dropped right into the old mounting screws and the hoses connected right up by hand. After completing the installation the unit heats up water quickly and you are ready to go. The only thing I did not realize was that the old filtration system works with the new unit, so there was no need to buy the new filtration. I saved that for when my old replacement filters are obsolete!
