The Hot Shot Hot Water Dispenser by Sunbeam is a must have small kitchen appliance. It is small, compact, and easy to store. It is inexpensive, but can be used to prepare many food items and hot beverages in a snap! This makes one serving at a time and if you need more than one serving, it heats the water so quickly that there is very little wait at all. This product is easy to use and very convenient. You fill the water reservoir with tap water, close the lid, and in about 30 seconds you have extremely hot water. I use my Hot Shot several times a week especially in the winter. I make hot tea, hot chocolate, and hot coffee drinks. Individual instant oatmeal and Cream of Wheat as well as soup packets and Ramen Noodles are also some easy-to-make items. Basically you can make anything that requires hot water. The Hot Shot is much faster than boiling water on the stove and even faster than the two minutes it takes in the microwave. You will enjoy the Hot Shot by Sunbeam.
