quooker-logo.png When engineer Henri Peteri was working on the development of instant soup for an international food company thirty-five years ago, he realised that soup would never be 'instant' without boiling water on tap. From that moment on he was captivated by this idea. He left the company he was working for and - working out of the cellar in his own home - started developing an appliance that would dispense boiling water instantly.

The Quooker Basic was launched in 1992. This was the first in a series of taps designed by Niels Peteri. The Classic followed in 1997, the Design in 1998 and the Modern in 2005. They were all designed at a workbench rather than a drawing board. And it shows in their strong form-follows-function look: large aerator and thin spout.

A true revolution ...

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 chefs 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 rare 'must haves'. This simple, ultra-safe idea immediately renders kettles out of date and takes kitchens a giant leap forward. Although it's new to the UK, over 100,000 kitchens in Europe already depend on their Quookers for instant boiling water.

And the applications are endless. 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 and with boiling water of 100ºC! After all, only truly boiling water is good enough for the perfect cup of English tea.
