ATLANTA, Oct. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- RheemLabs, the innovation incubator at Rheem®, announced the new XpressHot™ line of kitchen fixtures that deliver on-demand, near-boiling water to kitchen countertops with the push of a button. XpressHot delivers industry-leading quality, functionality and reliability that make Rheem the preferred choice of plumbing professionals across the United States. RheemLabs developed the product after a session with homeowners asking how we can help to solve their challenges in the kitchen, and they ask for a dependable product for filtered hot water that was easy to install and safe.
Launching today through a Kickstarter campaign, XpressHot brings an instant supply of hot, highly filtered water right to the kitchen sink. Available in two models, an integrated faucet fixture or replacement for common kitchen soap dispensers, XpressHot offers both hot and cold water along with a host of other new features that make it the ideal solution for today's homeowners.
Exact Temperature Control
The unit's digital temperature gauge adjusts between 172.5 and 208 degrees (boiling water is 210 degrees) to allows users precise control over water temperature for the activity at hand, whether that's boiling water for pasta or just warming it for hot chocolate for the kids. Filtered tap water can also be dispensed by both XpressHot devices with just a push of a button.
Child Lock Protection
A unique feature offered on both XpressHot models is a child lock that ensures the hot water won't be dispensed on accident or accessed by unattended children.
High Quality Design
In addition to its convenience and eye-catching aesthetic, XpressHot offers consumers the same innovative thinking, quality materials, and thoughtful maintenance features that differentiate Rheem professional-grade products from others on the market. The line utilizes a stainless-steel heat exchanger rather than copper, which works with all potable water, municipal or well, and can even pair with conditioned reverse osmosis systems.
Advanced Diagnostics and Energy Saver Built-in
On board diagnostics also take the guesswork out of troubleshooting, while the easy to access filter compartment and automatic filter reminders allow for easy upkeep. XpressHot's Economy mode also allows users to minimize the unit's energy consumption.
XpressHot fixtures are easy to install in under minutes by most DIY-savvy consumers, requiring just a simple water connection and a standard wall outlet.
"We are equally excited about the launch of our new XpressHot products and the opportunity to showcase the innovative approach happening at RheemLabs," said Sherri Burkett, Innovation Commercialization & Sales Manager, at Rheem. "The new XpressHot line pairs a sleek, modern design fixture with professional-grade water heating solution intended to solve everyday challenges for homeowners. It also highlights the important contributions of RheemLabs to advance the culture of innovation that has been at the core of our company for nearly 100 years."
Early backers of the Kickstarter campaign can pre-order the device at an "early bird special" rate of only $325 while supplies last, which is 46% off the suggested retail price.
