Zip HydroTap named Kitchen Product of the Year in the US

 22 Oct 2019

Zip HydroTap has taken home the top prize at the Kitchen & Bath Business Product Innovator Awards in the US – named Kitchen Product of the Year only months after launching into the market.

The judges at the Kitchen & Bath Business Product Innovator Awards were impressed by the superior product innovation that goes into each and every Zip HydroTap.

Known as the world’s most advanced drinking water system, the Zip HydroTap transforms the way people in over 76 countries drink and cook by dispensing pure-tasting instant boiling, chilled and sparkling, all at the touch of a button.

Our MicroPurity filtration ensures drinking water is pure-tasting by reducing sediment, volatile organic compounds like lead and parasites such as cryptosporidium and giardia greater than 0.2 microns, without removing beneficial fluoride.

This is the second major accolade for Zip HydroTap in the US – it was awarded silver against 600 entrants in the kitchen category at the largest Kitchen and Bathroom show in North America earlier this year.

Thanks to the reach of Zip Water’s parent company, Culligan Water, US consumers can purchase the world’s most advanced drinking water system from three premium kitchen and bathroom product distributors. These include Purcell Murray based in California covering the west coast; the Galley Midwest based in Chicago covering the upper Midwest; and Pinnacle Express based in Florida covering the north-east including New York and Boston. 

The US embracing Zip HydroTap is great news for the environment. Americans buy around 50 billion plastic water bottles every year and only recycle about 23 per cent of those - Zip HydroTap eliminates the need to buy single-use plastic bottles. 

We’re delighted to have been recognised for our dedication to innovation in a key new market, and we’re confident it will serve as a springboard for us to continue to drive business growth.
