At Kitchen Ergonomics we believe we are trend setters when it comes to picking out clever little appliances that give your Kitchen the WOW factor. The Quooker boiling water tap is one of those rare ‘must haves’ your friends will want it, kitchen designers and any good chefs will recommend it, newspapers and magazines will review it and you will be glad that you purchased it.
This simple, ultra safe idea immediately renders kettles out of date, puts one touch cups to shame and takes kitchens a giant leap forward. Although the Quooker is relatively new to the UK, over 250,000 kitchens in Europe already depend on their Quookers for instant boiling water.
In 1970 Henri Peteri started working in the cellar of his home he started developing an appliance that would dispense boiling water instantly after working for a company that made instant soups he wanted to create an appliance that heated the soup instantly not having to wait 5 minutes for the kettle to boil to make your ‘instant’ soup.
Between 1970 and 1973 Henri hadn’t managed to get much further with his prototype despite his several years of hard work. Between 1973 and 1975 he started selling the appliance to friends and family who were extremely enthusiastic, those who had a Quooker could no longer do without it. In 1978 after he had taken out his 7th mortgage on his home Henri was forced to discontinue his project and go back to earning a living for his family.
Henris Son Niels graduated as a Lawyer however in 1985 he decided to put his lab coat on and disappeared into the cellar for five years, his Fathers idea was turned into a product and the Quooker was born.
In 1992 the Quooker Basic was launched this was the first in a series of taps designed by Niels Peteri. Re-inforced by his Son Walter also a Law Graduate the product was launched commercially. In 1995 they bought a building despite the business making a loss.
In the Year 2000 the Quooker VAQ was launched, from this point the Quooker started to pop up Worldwide in peoples kitchens becoming a real talking point. In 2005 the Quooker launched in the UK with the term Throw Away Your Kettle. From that point it has continued to be a great success and appearing in more and more kitchen show rooms, designer kitchens and even chefs kitchens.
