Emma Asked :Hi can you please tell me if this tap splutters or spits when the boiling water is being discharged? Appreciate your feedback
Answered By derek :
By the very nature of how a kettle tap works, it will have what you could call spluttering, when the tap is closed the water temp is at 105 Celsius and is under pressure. So when you open the tap the pressure is dropped and the water immediately starts to boil/bubble in the tap as it comes out. That said the above tap has a valve that can be adjusted to slow the flow down and make it behave quite well. When I first installed mine it was quite energetic but a quick turn of the valve calmed it down and in all the time we have owned it neither myself or the wife have burned ourselves with it. Its the best thing we have ever bought for the kitchen. Yes its a tad pricey but the convenience of instant boiling water is fantastic. Hope that helps you make a choice.

Hi yes unfortunately it does. I have mastered this by holding the mug or saucepan high under the spout and lowering it as it fills. This reduces the spitting. There Definitely is an art to using this but u get used to it!
