Quooker at Spillers
The Quooker began life in 1970 when inventer Henri Peteri was looking at inventing an ‘Instant Soup’ product but needed a way of producing instant boiling water. After 2 to 3 years of unsuccessful prototypes a working model arrived in 1975. Due to cashflow problems and having to re-mortgage his home the project stalled so Henri was forced to return to a full time job. It wasn’t until 1985 did his son take on the project and the Quooker was born. The first ‘Basic’ model launched in 1992.
Registered as a brand in 1989, Quooker’s descriptive and internationally recognisable name has proven to be a great success. The Quooker is the world’s first boiling-water tap and the company holds global patents both on the Quooker and some of its parts. The Quooker brand represents high-end technology and excellent quality – qualifications cherished and safeguarded by Peteri BV.
A true revolution…
Quooker Boiling Taps
Every now and then a ‘vital’ new kitchen appliance comes along which changes the face of cooking. Trend setters buy it, their friends see it and immediately want one, kitchen designers and chef’s recommend it, newspapers and magazines review it and eventually it becomes a must have in every kitchen…
The Quooker boiling-water tap is one of those must haves. This simple, ultra-safe idea immediately renders kettles out of date and takes kitchens a giant leap forward. Although it’s relatively new to the UK, over 250,000 kitchens in Europe already depend on thier Quookers for instant boiling water.
Single boiling water taps come in several finishes and styles, whilst the range is broadened further with the option of the “twintap” range – a separate boiling water tap alongside a matching hot and cold mixer tap. For the minimalists, the Fusion (newest addition to the Quooker range) allows the supply of hot, cold and boiling water from a single tap. Quooker will save you money due to it’s patented “high vacuum” insulation ensuring stand by running costs are just 3 pence a day.
The applications are endless…
The applications are endless and Quooker users still come up with new ones. The most obvious one is making a cup of tea and the latest addition to the list is poaching fish. Of course you can also fill up a pasta pan, blanch vegetables, heat up plates and serving platters, make coffee, prepare baby formula, peel tomatoes, remove candle wax and much more. All done in a moment with boiling water of 100c! After all, only truly boiling water is good enough for the perfect cup of tea.
Quooker Fusion Tap
The Quooker Fusion allows you to not only get 100c boiling water but cold and hot water all from the same tap. The Fusion comes in round and square design with either a polished or brushed chrome finish.
It is easy to operate and also childproof with a double push-and-turn handle, crenulated for recognition and extra grip and has a red light ring that lights up when you touch the handle. The spout is insulated so it is not too hot to touch, can be turned 360 degrees for ease of use and produces a fine spray that prevents burns.
