An instant hot water tap is often just considered as a replacement to a traditional kettle for making hot drinks quickly, but it offers many more benefits to daily life.

Here are ten different ways you can make the most of the Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap;

The perfect cup of tea

How to make the perfect cup of tea is a topic that can often divide Brits, but thanks to its premium filter the Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap provides better tasting hot water, so you can get the perfect cuppa every time.


Refreshing cold drinks

Whether you live in a soft or hard water area, the filters used in the Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap will ensure you will always have great tasting, refreshing cold drinks – perfect for cooling down after a workout or in the summer months.


Convenient cooking

A cook’s handy helper, the Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap can speed up the preparation of pasta and rice.  Help your vegetables keep their vibrant colour and fresh flavour by quickly blanching them in boiling water before transferring them to the freezer.  This process cleans the surface and helps to slow the loss of nutrients.

Rinsing vegetables 

It is always advisable to wash fruit and vegetables before you eat them to remove bacteria.  With Alexandria you’ll find rinsing salad ingredients in chilled filtered water adds an extra crispness to your favourites such as radishes and lettuce.


Barista style coffee

Save money on those frequent visits to your favourite coffee shop by making your own barista style coffee at home. The high-quality, food grade filters used in the Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap will ensure coffee-house quality drinks, at any time of day.

Keep pets hydrated

Whilst filtered water at the touch of a button will be a popular investment for the whole family, it will also be well received by any four-legged friends in the home. It is important to keep pets hydrated, and clean, filtered water will encourage pets to drink more.


Making up baby bottles

Save precious time during night feeds by saying goodbye to the kettle and using the Alexandria to make up bottles. With seven pre-set temperatures to choose from, you’ll be sure to find the ideal temperature for preparing formula.


Keep flowers fresh

Cut flowers are a simple but effective way to lift your home and add a splash of colour – even in the winter months. Keeping flowers looking fresh for longer than a couple of days can be tricky but a top tip from florists* is to use filtered water, such as that from the Alexandria, to keep the flowers in bloom for much longer.

NHS England recommends that all baby feeding items should be sterilised until a baby is 12 months old.**  An instant hot water tap is ideal for sterilising dummy’s, bottles, teats and teethers in a hurry, helping to comfort your little one quickly.


Cleaning stubborn stains

Most of the trickiest cleaning tasks are in the kitchen, from greasy pans to stained chopping boards, but having instant hot water available will help to clean these stains and will leave your pots and pans gleaming in no time.
