My house does look lovely, but it’s nothing to do with me - my wife is completely in charge!” Jim jokes. Living with their miniature dashund Martha, Jim and Tanya film many of their YouTube vlogs from their London base, entertaining a combined 7.2 million subscribers. While their vlogs cover a variety of topics, both share a passion for baking. In fact, Jim dedicates a segment on his channel to #bakingwithJim, and for Tanya, it’s a passion that’s lead her to publish her very own cookbook ‘Tanya Bakes’. Many of the couple’s video diaries centre around the heart of the home – the kitchen. Renovated in 2016, Jim and Tanya’s elegant kitchen features Shaker style cabinets painted in Farrow and Ball Railings, white quartz countertops, metro tiling and essential storage space for baking utensils. Describing their kitchen style as “homely, functional and stylish”, it’s not surprising that when Jim decided he wanted an instant boiling water tap, his first choice was the Zip HydroTap.View Range
Both stylish and functional, the HydroTap looks at home in any design-led kitchen and dispenses filtered chilled and sparkling water, as well as boiling. Jim chose the Arc in chrome, perfectly complementing the pair’s classic kitchen aesthetic. The HydroTap has been useful for both baking and cooking: “It’s speeded up the whole process! I was melting chocolate for a video the other day and it was so handy to have instant boiling water.” With the kitchen and adjoining dining room a very social space, Jim says the appliance is also great for hosting parties; whether that’s making sparkling cocktails or after-dinner coffees. “We had our summer party the week after the HydroTap was installed and it went down a treat!” Great for baking, cooking and entertaining, Jim notes it’s not just him and Tanya benefitting from the kitchen’s newest addition: “Over some of the recent hot days, we’ve even treated Martha to chilled filtered water from the HydroTap – she loves it!”Enquire Today
"The water previously was lukewarm and we used to have to run it for a long time to get it cold. The HydroTap has made a huge difference in that respect. I use it mostly for the chilled filtered water and I reckon I’ve drunk more water since it was installed. I was never much of a tea drinker, but am finding myself make it much more now - it’s just so easy and everything just tastes so much cleaner. "
