Quooker Taps – the undisputed market leader in instant hot water taps.
Quooker invented and have continually developed the first ever instant boiling water tap, and now have a range that covers all requirements. Unlike other makes Quooker will dispense water at 100 degrees instantly.
Quooker – The tap that does it all
How it works
A Quooker tap dispenses 100°C boiling, hot and cold water whenever you need it. Let us explain what actually happens above and below the worktop.
The Quooker system consists of a small tank in the kitchen cupboard that is linked to the boiling water tap on the worktop. The tank acts like a vacuum flask connected to the water mains. The air in the insulated wall is so thin that the heat is unable to escape.
It therefore takes very little energy (just 10 watts) to keep the water in the tank at 110°C. The water only starts to boil when the tap is turned on and the temperature of the outflowing water drops to 100°C. While the water is flowing out of the tap, fresh water immediately flows into the tank.
A Quooker tap consists of two parts: a boiling-water tap on top of the worktop and a small tank under it, in which the water is stored at a temperature of 110ºC. This tank is a kind of thermos flask that’s connected to the water mains. Thanks to the high-vacuum insulation, the heat can’t escape. That means that only very little energy (10 watts) is required to keep the water in the tank at boiling point. When you pour boiling water from the tap, fresh water immediately runs into the tank under the worktop. So all you have to do is top up the tank and reheat what you’ve effectively used.
You can choose from a number of different tanks. They’re extremely economical thanks to their excellent insulation. The COMBI tank even has Energy label A. It not only supplies boiling water, but also hot and cold water (40-60° C). When you use it as a kitchen boiler, you’ll never have to wait for hot water again!
Safety - The safest choice for every household
The flow of water is not a solid jet.
The safe handle and the illuminated light ring make this unlikely, but imagine for a second that you are holding your hands under the flow of boiling water. You’d pull your hands back before you get badly burned because the boiling-water flow, while hot, is a not solid stream of water. It is made of fine drops; a huge difference to the solid jet of water that will hit you if the kettle falls over. That could cause serious burns in a single instant.
An insulated, rotatable tap
To further decrease the risk of burns, the Quooker taps are equipped with a couple of subtle features. For example, they have a rotatable spout that you can aim precisely, for example when you are filling a jug or a pan. The spout is well insulated in all models, meaning that you won’t run the risk of burning yourself after operating the Quooker.
The child-safe handle
A sophisticated safety system ensures that a Quooker will never automatically dispense boiling water. You first have to press the handle twice and then turn it. It is only then that boiling water flows from the tap. This system has been extensively tested. The complex press-turn movement means that the risk of ‘accidentally’ turning the boiling-water tap on is very small. This helps to protect young, curious children. In addition, the button has a light ring that illuminates while the tap is on to warn the user: warning, I’m dispensing boiling water!
Quooker Taps cannot tip over
Quookers are firmly affixed to the work surface, meaning they cannot tip over. A kettle, however, can tip over, as can a pan of water on the hob. These two cause the vast majority of accidents with boiling water. They can be caused, for example, by young children grabbing hold of the loose kettle cord and pouring the water over themselves, or by you bumping into the hob. Accidents of this kind are simply impossible with a Quooker in your home.
In 2020, the Dutch Burns Foundation conducted research into the use of boiling water taps and the risk of burns. The study concluded that the boiling water tap as a replacement for the kettle, appears to reduce the risk of a burn accident. You can download the research report by clicking the link below.
