What are the benefits to a Quooker tap?

Hot water taps are the first step to de-cluttering your kitchen, freeing up valuable worktop space by eliminating the need for a kettle and other hot water appliances. Especially if you are working with compact spaces, it’s an economical way to create space in small kitchens or simply to help achieve a contemporary, minimalistic aesthetic.

Quooker hot water taps have the competitive edge over its counterpart brands. The only brand able to dispense 100 degree water with an active carbon filter to keep the water fresh. Actively reducing the build-up of limescale for better quality water, and it lasts up to 5 years for longer sustainability.

Quooker also boast some impressive safety features to safeguard your home:

  1. Insulated buttons and handles which mean they are never hot to the touch.
  2. It never dispenses a solid stream of boiling water minimising the risk of burns
  3. Child safe activation which needs to be double tapped and twisted to activate boiling water
  4. Quooker taps are securely fitted so cannot be knocked over like a traditional kettle could.

 

The useability of your Quooker hot water tap is more than tea and coffee in an instant. Poach eggs for a quick Eggs Florentine breakfast, steam leafy greens like spinach or kale and speed up your pasta preparation. It’s also perfect for blanching asparagus whilst following last Spring’s delicious recipe post.

Will a Quooker instant hot water tap save me money?

To add on top of space saving qualities is the fact that Quooker is the most energy efficient hot water appliance, reducing waste and saving money on your household bills, it’s hard to see how you could live without one. Quooker states that it costs just 3p per day compared to boiling a kettle at 2.5p per time, so if you are partial to several cups of tea each day, it saves in the long run. Now, taps start from £950.00 up to £1890.00 for top specification models, so it’s not likely you will make your money back in a lifetime. So, make sure your motivations for installing an instant hot water tap are also for design and convenience or in a bid to rid your worktops of clutter.

People frequently worry about having water in the tank boiling all day, but Quooker is quick to point out that their patented vacuum insulation thermos technology simply holds water under pressure. So, rest assured it’s not bubbling away under your countertop.

Which Quooker tap is best for me?

You’re spoilt for choice with 6 collections to choose from, their newest addition Flex is the only one with a handy pull out hose, increasing its practicality. The Quooker Fusion Collection houses both Fusion Square and Fusion Round styles to match to the aesthetic of your bespoke design.

Integrating your new Quooker tap into your kitchen is easy, choose from up to 5 finishes (depending on style) polished chrome, stainless steel, black, gold or painted brass. Pair with accessories or door handles of the same finish to pull together a coherent design.
