Bristan GLL RAPSNK3 C 3 in 1 Boiling Water Sink Mixer
A great-quality tap which is easy to both fit and control.
Firstly, the lever is easy to navigate which increases the usability as it is simple to get the exact temperature you want – no fine tuning back and forwards to switch between perfectly hot and cold.
Looks-wise, it is modern yet classy. You couldn’t tell it was a boiling water tap from looks as it isn’t bulky or cumbersome. The button to switch to spray mode is also quite well-hidden which is nice.
The exterior has been designed to be cool to touch which we can confirm works, and a temperature stop button will limit its usability and hot water exposure to prevent users from being scalded.
It is recommended that all taps are fitted by a plumber, and according to other user reviews, all commented that this was a simple procedure as so many can be over complicated for even the most qualified professionals. Supplied with metal fittings, it feels secure and will stay in place.
The price makes it one of the more expensive on sale, but when we weigh up the quality and build of the tap plus its performance, it makes it a worthy cost in our eyes. It could reach a higher temperature ideally, but will still help you out with the majority of tasks.
- Build quality
- Easy to fit
- Good safety precautions
- Relatively low highest temperature
It isn’t the hottest in water temperature, but we would certainly say it is the best if quality and engineering is top of your list for a fully efficient kitchen
- Temperature: 65°C

Abode Pronteau 2 Lever 4-in-1 Hot Water Filter Kitchen Mixer Tap
Whether you are after steaming hot water or filtered drinking water, the Pronteau can help you out. It also provides regular everyday hot and cold water as you would find with a regular tap too, hence the 4-in-1 name.
Don’t worry about the tap being too hot to touch – it is thermally insulated, so will not harm anybody who accidentally comes into contact with it after use. The boiler also has a child-lock function for extra security.
The included water filter is adjustable according to the water hardness of your home, which will help prolong the life of the filter until you need to change it. Monitoring its performance is easy, as it will update you as to when it needs replacing.
With the ability to turn 360°, you have full water control, whether you want to use it as a regular tap over the sink or prepare a cup of tea on the bench.
Have you ever gone to rinse a plate and been soaked by a tsunami of water in return? Fear not – the aerated water supply means that the risk of splashbacks is lowered thanks to controlling the water pressure with the use of air bubbles. Not only does this create less mess, but it saves water too if you are rinsing cutlery or plates.
If you don’t want to worry about pre-filtering or pre-boiling your water ever again and instead you want both options to be limitless, the Abode Pronteau is a great bet for you.
- Angled design
- 5-year guarantee

QETTLE 4-in-1 Instant Boiling Water Tap
Ditch your kettle and expensive bottled drinking water in return for this Qettle tap system.
This 4-in-1 is easy to install and comes with great instructions to follow. The temperature reaches 100˚C (boiling point) unlike other boiling taps on the market, and it is stored at 105˚C, ready for when you need it next. There is a ten minute recovery time so you don’t have to wait long for it to refill, and it provides up to 10 cups at any one time thanks to the 4L storage tank.
It also offers cold water, so it can act as an ordinary tap – no need for seperate devices.
The filter needs replacing every 6 months to a year depending on your water usage, and at a cost of £26.95 RRP, they won’t break the bank. The LED light tells you when this is needed.
With a safety clip, you will only be able to access the boiling water if it is what you want. The lever must be pushed down to activate it, and once you let go, the water supply is immediately cut off, so there is no risk of scalding your hands (or those of any little ones) accidentally.
Boiling water is available pretty much immediately, and the boiler is designed to fit into even the most space-limited under sink cupboards. It costs just 3p per day to run, even on standby.

Franke Omni Classic 4-in-1 Instant Boiling Water Filter Kitchen Tap
With the ability to produce not only regular hot and cold tap water, but also boiling and filtered drinking water, this tap will make your domestic life so much easier.
Waiting for the kettle to boil or having to pre-filter your water/buy bottled water will be a thing of the past. The filter will also prevent limescale building up on the boiler, and you will only have to replace it every 6-9 months (depending on your water type). The LED built in to the tap will let you know when the filter needs attention.
It has the ability to produce 2.4L of water every minute, so if you are having to boil several pans-worth of vegetables or pasta, hot water is available at the operation of a lever.
Whereas most boiling water taps don’t technically reach boiling point and are instead limited to around 98°C, this one does reach the full temperature.
It is really easy to install, and much safer in a busy kitchen than regular heating appliances, with the lack of wires and items on the work surfaces. Patented chassis engineering means the tap is never too hot to touch, and a unique child safety clip keeps the tap out of reach of little hands.
The push to activate lever also ensures the hot water can’t be accessed by anyone who it shouldn’t be, and it is spring loaded so turns off immediately if any splashbacks occur.
- Country kitchen style
- Packed with safety features
- Long-life filters
- Anti-splashback feature can be problematic if you do want maximum pressure power
If you are after a tap for a busy, hectic household, the safety features of the Franke Omni make this the standout choice.

- Water Pressure: 1.5 - 5 bar

The GROHE Blue cartridge can filter up to 600L of water to deliver pure, refreshing water without any chemicals or limescale, which is ready for the boiler to heat straight away.
The GROHE Red technology then allows you to draw up to four litres of filtered kettle-hot water directly from the tap in an instant, so there is no waiting around.
For this hot water to flow, you need to press and hold the child safety button for three seconds, then press another button to let the water flow. Whilst this doesn’t guarantee no nasty accidents, it makes it pretty much impossible to be operated by any children in the vicinity. CoolTouch also keeps the outer of the tap cool, even when the water is boiling.
The boiler is made from titanium which, unlike the usual stainless steel and copper, is pretty immune to limescale build-up and corrosion. This ensures long-lasting performance. Titanium is also bio-compatible, so there will be no nasty metallic taste in your boiled water.
A comfortable to reach medium-high spout makes filling tall pots and containers easier and is especially suited to smaller kitchens and sink areas which struggle to accommodate large pans.
One downside is that the water produced seems to be slightly frothy. We think this is because of the nozzle on the tap and the aeration of the water, as it goes quickly and doesn’t affect the taste of the water, so isn’t too much of a problem.
As this is a duo model, it has all of the benefits of an ordinary tap as well as being a boiling water tap, so you don’t need two separate devices.
- Safety features
- Titanium boiler is on the compact side for saving space
- Replacement filters are quite expensive and need replacing often
Pretty technically advanced which is shown in the price, but still not the most expensive on the market for what you get.
- Temperature: Up to 95°
- Water Pressure: 1.0 bar
- Product Dimensions: 59.5 x 40 x 40 cm
- Control: Button and Lever
