A cup of tea or coffee with friends and family is one of life’s simplest pleasures.

We can’t invite guests over at the moment, but catching up with loved ones is at the top of the list of things we can’t wait to do.

When that time comes, we want to give people all our attention – not wasting time waiting for the kettle to boil.

And boiling water taps are for more than just hot drinks. There are many ways they can make life easier at home. Here are some of the ways they can help:

Time saving

We’ve been spending a lot of time in our homes lately. They have become our offices, gyms and schools as well as where we sleep, cook and garden. And this is set to continue.

home workers


According to a YouGov survey, 68% of British employees had never worked from home. However, 57% of people who were working before the pandemic now say they would like to continue homeworking.*

gym goers


Meanwhile, just 31% of gym-goers returned to their gym after the lockdowns ended, according to a survey by RunRepeat.**

As we keep ourselves busy throughout the day, we need a quick cup of coffee before a meeting or fresh filtered water after a workout. We don’t have time to wait for water to boil or to nip out to the shop for a bottle of still.

INTU boiling water taps means you can grab that hot drink or a lunch in an instant, so you can get on with what’s important to you.


Tea and coffee is one of the many uses for INTU boiling water taps in the home. No one likes a bad cup of tea – and you shouldn’t have to settle for less.

But did you know that 100 degrees is too hot and could risk burning the delicate tea leaves?***

The perfect temperature for a cup of black tea is somewhere between 90 and 98 degrees.

This drops to 80 degrees for green tea.

As INTU taps heat water to 98 degrees, there’s no risk of ruining a precious cuppa. And the temperature can be controlled easily and instantly using a digital LED control panel.

As well as boiling water, INTU water taps provide quality filtered water without needing to buy it bottled. Not only is this more convenient, but it’s also more environmentally friendly.

Switching to tap water is the main way we can reduce our use of single-use plastics. With INTU taps, you don’t have to choose between the environment and crisp filtered water.

And INTU boiling water taps can be used for much more than drinking. Whether your boiling vegetables, making a cuppa soup, making gravy or degreasing a roasting tin, INTU water taps can shave precious time off time-consuming chores.

Space saving

Electric kettles are seen as a kitchen essential – and are a significant part of British culture.

The kettle is one of the most used appliances in the United Kingdom (UK), while 95% of UK households own one****.

But kettles can take up unnecessary space in the kitchen, with unattractive wires that can get in the way.

INTU boiling water taps makes the kettle redundant, so there’s no need for them taking up valuable space on kitchen worktops.

As a bonus, it also saves precious plug sockets, for all those other useful kitchen gadgets.

Reduced clutter

more cooking


Busy days can mean the kitchen is messier than you might like. Especially if you’re one of the 59% of people in the UK who have been doing more cooking as a result of the pandemic.*****

INTU boiling water taps are great for keeping things clean. The INTU Vision IR 2-1 touchless tap has an infrared sensor to minimise the spread of bacteria which could be passed from skin to skin. It stops and starts the flow of water automatically with a wave of the hand.

Meanwhile, its pull down spray head gives you full flexibility, so it’s easier to clean up any mess.

There’s no choosing between style over substance, either. Our INTU 4OUR Swan & Square 4-1 boiling water taps are sleek and stylish kitchen additions – as well as functional.

Available in swan or square neck and 6 different finishes the 4-1 is sure to improve all aspects of your kitchen behaviour. This not only makes it compact and efficient, but also perfect for trend setters who value elegant, simple design.
