grohe red boiling hot water faucet

‘grohe red’ boiling hot water faucet
grohe, europe’s largest manufacturer of sanitary fittings has released ‘grohe red’, a faucet that draws boiling filtered water at 99 ºC directly from the tap. 
by keeping three litres of hot liquids ready for immediate use at all times, the fixture is perfect for instant cups of tea and coffee or cooking pasta on demand.
the collection features two sizes of taps: duo and mono, included with a 4 liter boiler. the larger duo model replaces a standard kitchen tap – enabling 
the use of boiling water in addition to its regular mixed hot/cold setting. a child lock system is incorporated into the design preventing young kids
from
accidentally burning themselves. the new system promotes sustainable energy consumption, eliminating the need to use a kettle.

  • This is a really excellent read personally, Must admit that you are one of the finest bloggers I ever saw. We truly stumbled about this on yahoo, and im happy Used to do. I’ll definitely be coming back again.

    weblog says:
  • I can just feel my hands getting accidentally burned by the hot water left in the faucet already.

    Anon says:
  • This thing is a third degree burn just waiting to happen.

    asdf says:
  • Ok firstly this concept has been around for years so I am not sure what it is meant to be so innovative about it. Secondly how on earth is a system that keeps 3 litres of water constantly hot more sustainable than momentarily boiling a kettle when you actually need hot water??

    Rosie Ansell says:
  • This is a product that is neither new nor necessary. On demand hot water systems have been around for years, and if I chose to do so, I could set mine to a very high temperature, close to boiling.

    As other have mentioned this is a severe scald risk, since the next person who uses the tap right after it is used for \’boiling\’ water is at risk of encountering at least a small amount of scalding water.

    It is also nonsensical to say that this is \’promoting\’ energy conservation if it maintains a 3 litre reservoir. Again, an on demand system would promote energy savings, a boiler system will not.
