What Is A Hot Water Dispenser? 

Tired of waiting for your kettle to boil? Try a Hot Water Dispenser instead. This 4l capacity machine can give you almost instant boiling water to make a cup of tea or mug of coffee. It works by using the 2600w power unit to heat a small amount of water when you press the tap rather than boiling the full capacity of the unit, which is how a kettle would work. 

Can I Control The Temperature? 

This electric hot water dispenser gives you the choice of five different temperature settings between 45 and 100 degrees. So, if you want to use this hot water dispenser for tea you’d pick 65 degrees, 75 degrees for your standard cuppa and 100 degrees for a herbal infusion. 

You can also decide how much water to dispense with options for 100ml, 200ml, 300ml and continuous. This is great if you want to make a pot noodle, fill a baby bottle or cook some pasta for example. The reservoir can hold up to 4L of water so you don’t have to top it up every time you make a brew. Don’t forget, you can also use this to dispense filtered water (at room temperature). 

Is This A Hot Water Dispenser With A Filter? 

To help keep water fresh this hot water dispenser comes with 2 x Aqua Optima Filters. Each can filter up to 150L during their lifetime and you only need to use one at a time, meaning you have a spare to start with. You can easily change the filters, and top up the water, through the flip top lid. There’s a water volume gauge on the side so you can easily see how much is left and when it’s time to refill. We’ve also included a light under the spout and a removable drip tray along with a child safety lock to prevent accidents. 

How Big Is This Hot Water Dispenser? 

This stainless steel hot water dispenser measures 20cm x 19cm and is 34cm high, making it compact enough for most countertops. Ideal for kitchen use, it could help save time on your daily domestic routines. Once you get it home simply plug it in and follow the calibration process (you’ll need to do this if the power is ever switched off as well), and you’re ready to start enjoying almost instant boiling water. 

Is It Easy To Clean? 

Yes. All you have to do is remove water marks on the housing by wiping down with a soft damp cloth. The drip tray can be cleaned in warm soapy water whilst regular descaling (usually once a month, but more frequently in very hard water areas) helps keep the inside clean and all parts working efficiently.

What is the Full Setup and Calibration Process?

Before using the water dispenser, it is essential to follow the setup and calibration process. It is a tested and proven process and will result in proper operation of the machine. After standing empty since manufacture, there are lots of small air pockets in the pipework that need to be released, and the calibration process is designed to do this. It also electronically locks the system to prevent any further ingress of air. This will help with the following: 

  • Avoidance of Water Spluttering
  • Ensuring Accurate Volumes are Dispensed

Top Tips:

  • Make sure to fill the tank back up every time you use it.
  • If you switch your machine off at the wall, make sure to calibrate your machine again.
  • If you leave your machine on standby, it does not need to be calibrated. 


  1. Ensure the water drain screw located on the base of the unit is tightened.
  2. Remove the purification filter from its packaging and flush with clean, cool water until the water runs clear.
  3. Fit the filter into the primary (removable) section of the tank, ensuring the seal is in place as supplied.
  4. Fit the primary (removable) section of the tank, including the purification filter, into the main (secondary) tank. 
  5. Fill the primary tank with cold water and allow the water to flow into the secondary tank. Please note this will take some time as the filter will restrict flow while it removes impurities.
  6. Repeat Step 5 above until the gauge on the side of the machine shows 4L.

Please note that it is good practice to always keep the tank at the upper capacity level, without exceeding maximum. 


  1. Ensure set-up steps have been completed and the gauge is showing 4 litres of water in the main tank.
  2. Hold the lock button to unlock the control screen.
  3. Set the unit at 0 degrees C and 000 volume using the temp. and volume buttons.
  4. Press OK button and dispense 1 litre of water into a suitable measuring jug at this setting. It will be necessary to press OK button again when reaching 1 litre to stop flow, as shut off is not automatic. Use dispensed water to refill primary tank.
  5. Repeat Step 4 above.
  6. Set the unit to 100 degrees C and 000 volume using temp. and volume buttons.
  7. Press OK button and dispense 1 litre of water into suitable measuring jug at this setting. It will be necessary to press OK button again when reaching 1 litre to stop flow, as shut off is not automatic. It is normal to experience spluttering flow of water during this step, particularly for the first 500ml of water. Caution – hot water will be dispensed during this step. Steam is vented into the water tank. Be aware of hot surfaces on the machine.
  8. Set the unit to 100 degrees C and 300ml volume using temperature and volume buttons.
  9. Press confirm button and allow machine to dispense.
  10. If flow of water during step 9. above is spluttering excessively, or less than 300ml is dispensed, ensure gauge is showing 4 litres of water in main tank, then repeat Steps 6, 7, and 8 above until flow improves, and 300ml is dispensed.

Your Andrew James Water Dispenser is now set up, calibrated, and ready to use. Calibration will be maintained while the machine is connected to the power, switched on, and locked. If power is interrupted, or the machine is moved to a different location, the calibration process must be repeated.

Please note that some spluttering may still occur as this is due to the fact the heat is applied immediately before water delivery. We advise customers descale their hot water dispenser thoroughly at least once a month from time of purchase, if you reside in a hard water area you may consider carrying out descaling more frequently.  If descaling is not completed thoroughly on a monthly basis this can cause irreparable damage to the internal set up and result in issues with volumes of water dispensed, temperature of water dispensed and can cause spluttering from the machine.
