Waste King has been manufacturing kitchen appliances for over 50 years and their products have a reputation for being of top quality and highly reliable.

Taking the seventh position on our list is the company’s Anaheim AH-1300 Hot Water Tank. Unlike the other units we’ve covered herein, this one is not a complete dispenser.

It’s a heating tank only designed to provide an instant and continuous supply of hot water. It doesn’t come with a faucet, but you can buy it separately.

Performance

This Waste King tank contains a 1300-watt heating element that can provide temperatures of up to 190oF.

What’s interesting though is that it offers a faster cycling time (heat recovery) which is basically the time until the hot water becomes ready again after the tank has been emptied. It heats up almost immediately, so you get the hot water in a matter of seconds.

The tank itself has the capacity to hold up to 5/8 gallons of water which is about 2.5 liters and it can deliver over 60 cups of hot water every hour.

This fairly large capacity coupled up with the fast heating time and production rate means this Anaheim AH-1300 Hot Water Tank can do well in homes that need continuous hot water fast.

The tank features a simple switch on the front part for temperature control. It allows you to adjust the temperature from low to high (or 140oF to 190oF), hence you get the water at the temperature you desire which is convenient.

The switch also serves as the control for turning off the tank when it’s not in use. Waste King has as well added a self-resetting thermal fuse to the tank to prevent it from overheating and it helps keep the water at the desired temperature too.

Concerning energy efficiency, the unit uses not more than 0.9 kWh per day. In other words, it will cost you less than $3 every month if you run it daily, hence as far as efficiency is concerned, it passes the test.

As we stated before, this is a tank-only system. It does not include a faucet, so you can buy it separately should you need it, but it can easily function with an existing faucet.

However, if you don’t prefer getting a separate faucet, Waste King has other models that come with both the tank and the faucet. We’ve included one of these models below which you can check out if you are thinking of investing in a Waste King hot water dispenser.

Installation

Being a tank-only unit it’s very easy to install Anaheim AH-1300, especially if you have an existing faucet already mounted on your sink. It will work with a regular 110V power outlet.

The tank is made of insulated stainless steel material that’s resistant to rust and corrosion, thereby it’s durable in every aspect and it retains heat well to keep the water warm for long when turned off.

The only downside is that it doesn’t come with a faucet. The other unfortunate thing is that it’s able to reach 200oF or above. Despite that, its quality and performance are no doubt outstanding plus we liked the fact that it’s reasonably affordable.

Therefore, if you don’t mind the lack of a faucet or have no problem getting a separate faucet, then this Anaheim AH-1300 model is a good deal. It’s a superb option too if you are looking to upgrade your existing hot water system or just want a backup tank.
