The D271H-12 Hot Water Dispenser is Westbrass’s most impressive model so far. It’s one of the best single-handle dispensers out there offering reliable performance and convenient functionality.

Performance

While it’s relatively simple in terms of design, this Westbrass D271H-12 dispenser is highly effective with respect to delivering instant hot water.

The unit uses a 1300-watt heating element and it’s incorporated with QHT-1 technology which is dubbed as quick heating water. What this means is that it heats the water rapidly no matter the temperature setting you select.

Coupled with a large 2/3 gallons tank that can generate more than 60 cups of hot water every hour, this unit will be able to give you instant access to near-boiling water at any time.

Moreover, the tank utilizes copper tubing connections. These are very efficient tubing, especially for delivering the hot water to the faucet, so it’s completely capable of handling even heavy-duty use.

You can also adjust the temperature to the level you prefer as the unit comes with a temperature control switch that provides a wide temperature range from 145oF to 190oF. The switch as well allows you to manually turn off the unit if needed.

Dispensing Mechanism

The Westbrass D271H-12 offers quick and easy water control using a single-handle faucet. The faucet has a spring-piston handle which you push down to dispense water.

If you happen to leave it on without knowing, the tap won’t continue running. The handle automatically turns itself off stopping the dispensing of the hot water. This not only prevents accidental burns but also saves power and helps prevent wastage of water.

The faucet also features a high-arc spout that’s about 9¼ inches tall, hence it provides plenty of clearance from the countertop or sink. It won’t get in your way.

Now the best part about this Westbrass model is that you have four awesome faucet finish color options to choose from, so you can precisely complement your existing kitchen décor.

You can choose between polished chrome, antique copper, matte black, or oil-rubbed bronze. This particular model comes with an oil-rubbed bronze finish faucet. Oil rubbed bronze is almost black but it has copper undertones that give it a classy, vintage look.

If you love rustic and antique designs, this will suit you well. Furthermore, the spout is nicely thin and has an elegant gooseneck projection, so it will certainly make your kitchen look more appealing.

Installation

The D271H-12 stands out too for its ease of installation. If you are a DIY person, you will find it easy to set up this unit. It’s a simple and straightforward process, and a detailed guide is provided to take you through the whole process.

The package also contains everything you will need to install it including the mounting materials and all the required tubes for a quick, convenient installation. According to the manufacturer’s recommendation, you will need a silicone seal for the installation, not a plumber’s putty.

More so, the system is designed in such a way that you can fit a filter between the water supply and the heating tank, so before the water gets inside the tank to be heated, it gets filtered and cleaned first.

The tank is strong stainless steel while the faucet is made of solid brass, so they are very sturdy and durable. Stainless steel and brass are as well resistant to moisture and heat, thereby, they will last longer without rust or corroding.

If there’s a setback to point out, it would be the fact that the heating element can’t quite reach up to 200oF or beyond. It’s a shame since most hot water dispensers reach up to 210oF. Even so, its temperature range is still sufficient enough for most situations.

Having been so well made, easy to use, and highly functional, you are not likely to encounter any issues with this Westbrass D271H-12 hot water dispenser. It’s worth a close look if you are searching for a simple and effective single-handle hot water dispenser.
