Full Steam Ahead

Finally, a real boiling water faucet: 100° C/212° F!

Recently a friend “boiled” water for my tea in the microwave. It never reached a rolling boil – bleeccch. At my house, the trusty Braun water kettle is my favorite go-to appliance for morning coffee and my green-tea nightcap. So I was instantly drawn to the Quooker boiling water tap the moment I stumbled across this “quooky” video promo. I found less steamy additional videos on using the faucet even more fascinating. The difference between the Quooker and other instant-hot-water faucets is the boil. Water is heated to 100 degrees C or 212 degrees F. It’s an expensive addition to the kitchen, of course. And oh, to be in England where it might be possible to give the latest object of my kitchen obsession a test pour.
