Available by themselves or with filtered water
in one spout, instant hot water dispensers
— or insta hots — like tanks made by
InSinkErator, delivers near-boiling 200° water
without wait. Instantly make soup, coffee and
pasta; blanch vegetables, thaw frozen foods,
loosen jar lids, warm baby formula or an ice-
cream scoop; and disinfect and melt away
stickiness on dishes, right when you want it.
The dispenser sits on the sink, next to the
faucet, while a hot water tank stows away

Carbonated Water

Add lime for a refreshingly bubbly glass of
water, flavored syrups to create a flavored
sparkling beverage or use carbonated water
for customized bar drinks. Degrees of fizziness
can be adjusted on the regulator; a sparkling
water appliance, like the Exubera by Everpure,

Garbage Disposals

Chicken bones, fruit rinds, coffee grounds and
more can go right down the drain where they
are virtually liquefied by powerful, high-end
kitchen garbage disposals from InSinkErator,
resulting in a cleaner food-prep area and
less odor-causing cans and bags. All models
feature a stainless-steel grinding component,
two grinding chambers, auto-reverse in case
the blades get stuck and extended warranties.
What's better than super powerful? Low
noise. "I have some clients who have said they
actually have to put their ear to the sink to
make sure it's working," Moss says.
