Best water dispensers in Singapore

It’s common knowledge that we’re supposed to down at least 8 cups of water a day, but with everyone at home drinking up, even the best kettles can struggle to keep up. To help you stay hydrated in our humid Singapore weather, a water dispenser is your best bet for clean and fresh water on demand.

For convenience, you might pick a variable temperature dispenser for hot or cold water at a push of a button. There are also options with filtration and disinfection features and even ones that provide alkaline water for added health benefits. To fit your specific needs, here’s a rundown on the ten best water dispensers in Singapore:

1. Cosmo Quantum – purified water with 99.9% filtration accuracy 

For those of us working with a kettle, H20 often comes in the form of either room temperature or piping-hot 100ºC water. Cosmo Quantum, however, provides the nifty function of having three temperature options at all times which you can customise for green tea brewing, formula milk making, or disinfecting.
