Modern technology has made our lives more convenient than ever. With numerous innovative products out in the market, a coffee maker with hot water dispenser has deemed to be one of the most important appliances at home.
They are really useful for lots of household chores. Can you boil water with one of these coffee makers?
If you ask me, it’s close enough.
So, here are a few of the best selling coffee makers that also have a built in hot water dispenser. We’ve reviewed a few of them below and we like them all generally well enough but one of my absolute favorites is not marketed for this purposes.
The Hamilton Beach 2-Way FlexBrew Coffeemaker has a full carafe on the left and a pod holder on the right. You can easily keep the pod holder empty for hot water and still use it for k-cups if you keep the pod holder close by.
Now, on to our reviews of the bestsellers in this space.
Cuisinart CHW-12 Coffee Plus 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker with Hot Water System, Black/StainlessThe CHW-12 Coffee Plus with Hot Water Dispenser is a product from Cuisinart that offers not only to brew coffee for you, but provide you with hot water for soups and other hot beverages of your choice.
It is built to adhere to the North American Electrical Standards so you are assured of this product’s quality and performance. It has a 24 hour programmability function that delivers trouble-free cleaning. It has a brew pause feature, adjustable on and off and you can even control the temperature to low, medium and high. This awesome product can brew 12 cups and coffee without the fuss.

It also has a strength selector if you want a regular or strong flavored coffee any time of the day.
The Carafe side water reservoir can either provide you hot coffee or water at your convenience. The user friendly control panel and display gives you programming the brewing time hassle-free.
So, this addition to your home is more than just a coffee maker.
Mr. Coffee BVMC-DMX85 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker with Integrated Hot Water Dispenser, 16-OunceThis coffee maker from Mr Coffee is programmable just like you would expect but we like the auto-pause feature that lets you take a cup before the pot finishes brewing!
As for the water reservoirs, there are two, one for coffee making and the other for making hot water for any other purpose. Unlike the Cuisinart mentioned above you can see how much water is in the hot water dispenser reservoir at a glance, No more thinking it’s got enough in it only to find you can only make half a cup of tea.

In addition to multi-use coffee makers like this you may want to shop specifically for a direct plumbed coffee maker because they make things even more convenient. You can brew coffee, get hot water on demand for tea, and never have to fill the water reservoir again.
Coffee Makers That Makes Hot Water On Demand Are Perfect For Tea!
The vast majority of our customers who are looking to buy a coffee machine that also dispenses hot water are in it for two reasons, they either want to easily make hot water to tea prep or for making hot chocolate!
What I love about these units is that they tend to have a separate water reservoir, one for coffee and one for always available hot water.
I’ve had a Cuisnart in my home for years and we (my wife) has used that hot water dispenser nearly daily for everything you could image – ramen even!
The only warning I can give you is that the hot water heaters tend to make noise off and on all day so if you leave it on then be prepared for that.
Do Any of These Water Reservoirs Come Off?
I only have a couple compaints about the majority of hot water dispensing coffee makers.
Most of them have built in reservoirs that aren’t removable.
If there was a large selection of coffee makers with removable water tanks then this would make these machines even better in my opinion.
Also, if I were to ask for anything out of mine it would be for an automatic shutoff of the water heater. Our is either on or off with no programming and if you leave it on for a really long time then evaporation of your hot water starts becoming a concern.
Just things to consider while you shop. 🙂
