Hot water source with a clear advantage. The Bosch Filtrino delivers filtered water ready heated
Just the right temperature. Filtrino dispenses water at the touch of a button: room temperature, 70, 80 and 90 °C hot or boiling
BRITA-filtered. Integrated BRITA MAXTRA filter for perfect taste and appliance protection
Saves time and energy. Innovative heating system reduces heating time to practically zero
Munich – It is every tea drinker’s dream. Bosch is proud to introduce the Filtrino, a combination of water filter and premium electric water heater. At the touch of a button, BRITA-filtered, hot water flows straight into the cup at precisely the required temperature: 70 °C, for example, for white teas, 80 °C for green teas and 90 °C for instant coffee specialities or hot chocolate. For fruit, herbal and black teas, instant soups or sauces the Filtrino provides water that is boiling hot.[i] For those who like their glass of still water at room temperature, the Filtrino can also serve up exactly what is required. The same also applies to the quantity, because at the touch of a button the water heater will serve up 120, 150, 200, 250 or 300 milliliters for differently sized cups, mugs, glasses and bowls. In addition, the start/stop function makes it possible to control the quantity of water to the exact drop.
Double savings in time and energy
For all that, the Filtrino is far faster than any comparable 2,000 watt electric water heater. Just about 40 seconds from the start it is ready with a cup of boiling hot water. Conventional boilers take more than twice as long. The energy consumption also speaks clearly in favor of the water heater. The integrated instantaneous water heater system means the Filtrino uses approximately half as much energy each time it heats water. After all, the Filtrino only heats up the exact amount of water that is actually needed. As a result, this novel appliance saves up to 50 per cent of the usual electricity and time, not to mention valuable space, for now water filter and heater are compactly united in one appliance.
Filtrino with small children – it’s a safe bet!
When developing the Filtrino, Bosch also thought about the children in the home who occasionally like to play with appliance buttons. They are safely and effectively protected against scalding by the child-proof lock. Simply press the button for five seconds and no further water will be dispensed that is hotter than 20 °C.
Since Bosch works in cooperation with BRITA, a global market leader in household water filtration, the Filtrino does not require a rare, special filter. The BRITA MAXTRA filter cartridge integrated inside the water tank is available in all leading supermarkets and drugstores. It reduces lime scale and chlorine as well as other substances, including metals such as lead and copper found in domestic water supplies. Tea drinkers value the extra aroma and clarity of their favorite drink as well as the absence of streaks. At the same time, BRITA-filtered water enhances the appliance’s protection against calcium deposits – for a longer life cycle and constantly high energy efficiency.
