The new two in one, dual chamber DC15 counter-top boiler from Instanta has two separate stainless steel water tanks for flexibility in service.
The tanks can be set at different temperatures, said to make the unit versatile. While one side dispenses boiling water at 98°C for the brewing of regular black tea, the other side can be set to a slightly lower temperature, 80°C say, suitable for preparing green or other speciality teas for example.
The unit has a heat up time of 42 minutes, and each automatic- fill tank has a rapid draw-off capacity of 7.5litres, equating to 15litres in total. Each tank also has its own LCD screen and power button for individual control. The water temperature is displayed on each screen in °C, and can be adjusted in program mode between 70 and 98°C for precision control.
A single mains water supply feeds both tanks, and a built-in, high volume multi-flow filter removes sediment and impurities such as chlorine, while reducing limescale build-up. Safety features include boil dry and over-boil protection, plus an illuminated “caution hot water” safety message.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, the DC15 is built with a premium-grade brush finish stainless steel. The draw-off taps have a metal tap-bonnet and stem, rather than standard plastic, which is said to bring an upmarket feel to the unit. A 2-year parts and labour warranty is supplied as standard.
