Quooker UK Ltd.
3 Waterpark Hall
Quooker - the only 100 degrees celsius boiling water tap in the UK.
A true revolution
The new kitchen must-have. Quooker: the tap that immediately dispenses boiling water. Tap on the worktop, tank underneath. A 100% Dutch invention taking over the world.
You can choose between a separate boiling water tap with accompanying mixer tap, or the new Quooker Fusion: a single tap for hot, cold and boiling water. Ultra-safe, super-efficient and available in eight tap designs and three finishes.
And if you thought that the Quooker was wasteful, think again: the patented high-vacuum insulation ensures that the Quooker's standby usage is just 3 pence a day. For even more efficiency, choose a COMBI tank, a single, amazingly economical way to produce both hot and boiling water. No kitchen is complete without its Quooker.
Save energy and water
The Quooker's perfect high-vacuum insulation means that it only costs 3 pence a day to have boiling water at hand, exactly when you want it. What's more, the Quooker ensures that you always have the exact amount of boiling water you need. And you will really save money if you choose the COMBI tank, which supplies all of your kitchen?s hot water too.
By generating both hot and boiling water in a single compact tank under your worktop, the COMBI eliminates the need to pipe hot water all the way from the main boiler to kitchen sink. No more running the tap for ages to get hot water and you?ll see big energy savings too.
