article imageNew Tefal Quick Cup Hot Water Dispenser heats water in 3 seconds

With just a press of a button, you can get a cup of hot water in just three seconds. The new Tefal Quick Cup Hot Water Dispenser (available for U.K. customers) saves money and energy.
By pressing the button, you can get either a cup of hot or cool filtered water in only 3 seconds. This hot cup of water will be useful if you are making a hot tea with tea bags or hot coffee with instant coffee bags like the new Starbucks' Via Ready Instant Brew.
Tefal (and T-Fal in the U.S. belong to the same group) has developed this machine with their unique opti-quick heating system so you can make a cup of hot water in only 3 seconds. You can compare it with other kettle or coffee makers, which take more than a minute.
The device also saves water; with a kettle, one usually waste more water than necessary, whereas the Tefal Quick Cup Hot Water Dispenser only heats and uses the water you need, saving water which equates into saving energy.
Tefal claims it can save up to 65 per cent of the energy used by a standard kettle.
The built-in filter, Tefal Claris Aquafiltration system, reduces chlorine, lime scale and other impurities present in water. The filter lasts up to six weeks and can filter approximately 50 liters (13.2 gallons) of water.
You can also use this as a water-filtration system if you like and replace bottled water.
The main features of the Tefal Quick Cup Hot Water Dispenser are:
· Heats water to output it at 90 degrees
· Includes 1 Claris filter in pack
· Easy filling
· Stainless steel control panel
· Cool touch exterior
· 1.5L (0.40 gallon) removable water tank is dishwasher safe and easy to fill and can be kept in the fridge
· Stainless steel control panel
· 2.8 kW· programmable cup size
· Non slip feet
· Automatic switch off
· Replacement filter indicator light
· Red button for hot filtered water, black button for filtered water

You can purchase it here at the UK Guardian Store. The Tefal Quick Cup Hot Water Dispenser costs £53.50 ($76) and the filter costs £4.84 ($6.94). This is not yet available in the North America, but I will update this article as soon as it does become available.
