Get near-boiling water in a jiffy using the SST-FLTR stainless steel tank and filtration system from InSinkErator. Designed to be used with one of the company's instant hot water dispensers, SST-FLTR has a 2/3-gallon capacity and can produce up to 60 cups of 200 degree F water per hour--great for making tea, cooking pasta, or scrubbing dirty dishes. A built-in filtration unit ensures fresh-tasting water. This product is covered by InSinkErator's three-year in-home service warranty.
The SST-FLTR tank is made to be used with an InSinkErator instant hot water dispenser (sold separately) for fast, convenient hot water (click to enlarge).
When you use the SST-FLTR tank and filtration system with one of InSinkErator's instant hot water dispensers, you can get near-boiling 200 degree F water in just moments. This helps you save time and effort in the kitchen--whether you're preparing tea, melting chocolate, thawing frozen foods, removing wax from a candle holder, or scrubbing food particles from pots and pans.
Generous Capacity for More Hot Water
The SST-FLTR tank has a 2/3-gallon capacity and can dispense up to 60 cups of near-boiling water per hour. When you turn on your InSinkErator's instant hot water dispenser (sold separately), water travels up the supply line to the filter, then to the tank, where it's heated to 200 degrees F. As the water is used, more water replaces it in the tank.
The tank's stainless steel core provides greater durability, while a built-in InSinkErator F-201 filtration unit yields fresher-tasting water. A top-mounted expansion chamber and special aspiration system help the tank deliver optimal, on-demand water flow. Tool-free tank connections and dry start protection allow you to install the tank with ease.
The SST-FLTR is certified by NSF International and Underwriters Laboratories (UL). It contains a 115-volt, 750-watt, 6.25-amp heating element and a grounded three-prong plug. A thermal protection system helps prevent the product from overheating and meets UL standard 94HF-1 for flammability. The snap-action thermostat is factory-pre-set at 200 degrees F but is adjustable from 150 degrees F to 210 degrees F.
InSinkErator offers quality garbage disposals, garbage disposers, water dispensers, hot water dispensers, home water filtration systems, food waste disposers, commercial kitchen appliances, small kitchen appliances, and kitchen renovation products.

Top Customer Reviews
My poor rating is entirely related to the warranty service I attempted to obtain after my SST hot water dispenser quit working after 8 months of operation. During my contact with Insinkerator via the 1-800 number it was revealed that I must have have a copy of my receipt "for professional product installation."
Okay, what kind of a game is this? I do not have a receipt for installation, because I installed it myself using the instructions that were provided in the manual. The manual never specified professional installation required for warranty coverage.
On my further insistence on unit return and replacement, the customer service rep continued "We do not have a repair facility or shipping address. An Insinkerator selected plumber must be dispatched to your location. "You should be aware that you will be liable for the service call and the full unit replacement costs if it is determined the installation was not correct."
Okay, this is rubbish. The unit is a small, plastic, foam and very thin steel tank weighing less than a two pounds. It has two internal components, a 98 cent thermostat and heater element. The water flow is fine, so the thermostat or element quit. Why should a plumber be required to fix an ELECTRICAL PROBLEM?
At the time of purchase I was not aware of other alternatives. I now see that a simple electric hot water pitcher or heat-on-use hot water heater would have been better alternatives and have provided better warranty support.
My advice, keep looking.
The product is good, when it works. The problem is that the quality is terrible, and when it fails, it can cause property damage.
We purchased this product in early 2006, and as of this writing, it has failed three times. The first time, the heating element failed, and Insinkerator replaced it. The second time, the unit leaked all of its contents out, damaging our wooden cabinetry. When they replaced the unit, I wisely put a bucket underneath it. It came in handy when it failed yet again, dumping all of the water into the bucket I placed underneath it.
If you decide to purchase this unit, please make sure that it's accessible for replacement and that you place a bucket underneath it. Check the bucket regularly. Also, make sure that the temperature is set to hot, but not boiling; otherwise, water will constantly run from the dispenser and the unit will burn itself out. Good luck.
The new tank is wider than the old one. So, I had to move the mounting bracket so the new tank did not interfere with the supply valve. When I called to explain the tubing mismatch, ISE sent an adapter for the line from the faucet to the tank (1/4" compression to quick-disconnect). However, the 3/8" to 1/4" Y adapter from the filter leaked when I tried it with 1/4" copper tubing. I ended up getting 2 1/4" to 3/8" compression adapters from Home Depot, which did fine with the copper 1/4" tubing and the plastic 3/8" tubing. Two are needed since the filter goes in between the supply and the faucet. Do-it-yourselfers will also need a compact tubing cutter and some extra 1/4" compression nuts and ferrules.
