On-demand hot water for sink

My kitchen sink is a long way from my water heater and I'm wondering if I could put an "insti-hot" under the sink. Anyone ever done this or have any thoughts/advice?

Instant Water Heater

We had one in a diesel pusher and they're available if you check on Amazon. They're 120 volt, so that'll be another electrical connection you'll need, plus the added amperage demand. Also, you'll need to winterize it similar to your regular water heater with the same precautions of not operating it empty. Also, you may need to clean the coils periodically, like a coffee maker, to prevent lime build up. Other than that, they're a good addition.

Thanks for the info. Sounds like the additional amps may be the biggest concern so I'll have to do some checking into that.
