Boiling Water Taps: A kitchen essential for every household

Something that was originally viewed as an unnecessary luxury item has now become a household essential for millions across the globe. The primary reason for this is convenience. We


Comment by Stephen Johnson Managing Director, Quooker

live in a world where people want things delivered at speed. As a generation, we are inherently less patient than we used to be, increasingly unwilling to wait or compromise. On average, we spend four months of our lives waiting for the kettle to boil. Not so with a boiling water tap, which delivers the exact amount of boiling water needed instantly. Concerns around safety used to be a significant

factor in dissuading people to invest in a boiling water tap. However, with constant innovation, boiling water taps on the market today are completely safe to use. With user-friendly, in-built safety mechanisms that make it virtually impossible to turn on boiling water by accident, they are ideal for families with small children or those with restricted mobility.

oiling water taps have grown rapidly in popularity over the past ten years.

There has also been a significant consumer shift

towards more sustainable and eco-conscious consumption. The UK household uses an average of 360 single use plastic bottles per year. To combat this, in addition to the hot, cold and boiling water functions, some brands are turning their attention to new water modes. Look at the development of offering filtered, chilled and sparkling water from the same tap, at the touch of a button. Taps that can deliver sparkling and chilled water dramatically reduce this figure, providing a more long-term sustainable alternative. With a boiling water tap, you also save water

and electricity. When you dispense water from a boiling water tap, you use the exact amount of water you need, unlike a kettle whereby more water is boiled than needed, or how often is a kettle re-boiled because the water has cooled down, wasting yet more energy. Boiling water taps have tanks which store water at high temperatures under pressure. This technology keeps the water hot without needing to use much energy at all. Think of it as an electrically powered flask, from which no energy can escape.

Sustainable Design: Quooker, the tap that does it all W

hen it comes to boiling water, your kettle is costing you time,

money and the planet. Offering a more sustainable alternative, Quooker taps offer unparalleled functionality and huge environmental benefits. Thanks to the new CUBE accessory, Quooker

taps fitted with this accessory now dispenses chilled and sparkling water at the touch of a button. With CUBE, the immediacy of super chilled and filtered water can be enjoyed without having to wait or waste water. Furthermore, one

canister of C02 yields 60 litres of carbonated water which significantly reduces the need for single-use plastic bottles. CUBE filters are also able to process around 6,000 litres before needing to be replaced. Dispensing precisely the amount of water needed at any given moment, CUBE ensures responsible and more sustainable consumption. All Quooker taps continue to use very little

electricity and give staggering energy saving results; thanks to its sophisticated state-of-the-art tank technology, it takes very little energy (just 10

watts) to keep the water in the tank at 110°C. 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 coming out of the tap, fresh water immediately flows into the tank to replace the exact amount extracted ready for the next use.
