Instant under sink water heater?

    hello am looking for some info if thats OK - Our hot kitchen tap (its a monobloc) takes ages before the hot water from the copper immersion tank (situated about 17ft away from the tap) starts running through the tap, until the hot water comes through the water is freezing cold in this weather. Dont want hot boiling water , just hot enough to wash hands etc.

    Thinking of Storage heater , but the water is already heated in the immersion tank cylinder , so was thinking about these heaters you wrap around the exposed bit of hot water copper pipe under the sink , like an electric blanket kind of thing and are they expensive devices?

    Theres a 13A 3 pin socket under the sink so I want a heater that will plug into that (so go to be under 3kw I suppose) - any instant inline heater do you know of that are any good that heat up as the water flows through?

    Its got to be an unvented one if I want to use it with my existing tap.

    I have seen this but its storage and its 10ltr it might be overkill for what i want but I would be looking at paying 80eur or under (preferably €50 or under) - how you reckon it would do for me? - its only 1.5kw though and i cannot seem to find much on the Internet about it even though its a dimplex. I am presuming its an unvented one and can just be hooked up to a normal tap? - Any advice/ideas greatfully received though.

    Have you considered running a secondary hot water pipe to the Sink and back to the Cylinder. You can even put a recirculating pump on it.
    That way you'll have continuous hot water circulating non stop and instant hot Water at the Tap.

    thanks, no I havent considered it - but it sounds like a lot of hard work and extra plumbing, i would rather a simpler route/way if I can like plumbing in a heater of some kind under the sink trouble is i dont really know much of whats available on the Irish market. I suppose I could ask someone like heatmerchants or someone like that but I thought I would check here first.
