The HOT150 falls within the Invite series and it’s another reliable instant hot water dispenser from InSinkErator. The features and performance of the unit are identical to those of the other InSinkErator models including the tank design.

Performance

The tank of the HOT150 house a 750-watt heating element and has a capacity of 2/3 gallons. It heats quickly like the rest of InSinkErator’s dispensers and can similarly deliver a maximum of 60 cups of hot water every hour.

The model features the same adjustable thermostat and control knob that allows you to modify the temperature from 160oF to 210oF.

You won’t incur much cost to run this unit too because it’s energy-efficient using less than 18kWh in a month. Plus

Dispensing Mechanism

The HOT150 comes with a unique faucet that’s different in both design and functionality from that of the other InSinkErator instant hot water dispensers.

It’s a simple faucet with a simple right-handed lever that you have to turn and hold constantly to dispense the hot water. The faucet features a self-closing valve which closes the lever instantly when you let go to shut off the water.

Beyond that, the unit has dry-start protection to help prevent the tank from overheating when there’s no water. Thereby like all InSinkErator models, you are assured of some level of safety when using this HOT150 dispenser.

Spout height from the sink or counter is 6.25 inches and its reach is 5.38 inches. This is a decent clearance in comparison to the H-CONTOUR-SS, sufficient enough to fit a big container under it.

The faucet is only available in a satin nickel finish which combined with the simple design, gives it a laid-back yet elegant look that would work with any kitchen décor.

Installation

If you are a skilled DIYer, setting up this HOT150 model is simple and this is partly due to the convenient InSinkErator’s tool-free tank connection and the straightforward installation manual that provides clear illustrations on how to set up the faucet as well as the tank.

To successfully install it, you will need several tools like a dedicated control valve with both compression fitting and T-fitting. You will need as well an unswitched 110V AC outlet to power up the tank once installed.

If you’ve never performed any DIY installations, you may have to get a professional plumber, especially for the faucet installation and power outlet set up under the sink.

The tank has the same compact design we see in all InSinkErator’s hot water dispensers; hence it doesn’t require a lot of space for the installation and it’s very durable courtesy of the sturdy stainless steel construction.

The unit does make some noise when running which is a minor drawback we noted although it’s not a loud noise that can cause a disturbance.

You get a 1-year limited warranty with this InSinkErator HOT150 which is short considering that the other two models come with a 3-year warranty.

However, the nice thing about this warranty is that it includes free house calls during the entire warranty period which means that should your dispenser need service, InSinkErator’s technical team will come to you. That sounds like a good deal.

To sum it all, if you are after something simple yet still can output a high volume of near-boiling water, this InSinkErator HOT150 instant hot water dispenser is for you. It stands out for its ease of use, efficiency, and long service life.
