There’s one thing above all others that really grinds my gears in the kitchen. Is it my useless, broken dishwasher? No. What about my microwave with a dodgy spinning tray? Not even close. The one thing that rubs me the wrong way is waiting for the tap to get hot. It’s annoying on every level; I don’t want to boil my kettle from ice cold water; that would take years. Likewise, I don’t want to have to cook my rice from cold water, I don’t have that kind of time, I’m not a gourmet chef!
Thankfully the world is populated with genius minds. Someone, probably defying the laws of physics, has designed an instantly hot tap. This is revolutionary – all those previous hassles, all of those headaches – gone in one simple design. They’re not cheap, and obviously require a plumber to come and have a rummage in your pipes, but once it’s fitted? Life gets a whole lot better!
