Does Quooker Do Sparkling Water?
During our Kitchen Design Podcast we asked Louie Basso from Quooker UK, the world’s leading boiling tap manufacturer, “As well as boiling water, what else does a Quooker tap do?”… Here’s what he had to say.
The Tap That Does It All…
The new function makes life in the kitchen even easier. It saves you time and space, it means you no longer need to use plastic bottles and it is completely safe. To dispense sparkling water, press and turn at the same time. The illuminated ring that turns red to indicate boiling water now flashes blue: sparkling water comes out of the tap. And if you hold down the button for slightly longer and then turn it, you get filtered water. So it’s impossible to dispense boiling water when you want sparkling water.
How does a Quooker work with CUBE?
The CUBE can be installed at the bottom of the kitchen cabinet next to the Quooker tank. It includes two filters that make the water just as pure as the bottled water you buy in the shop. The CUBE is attached to a CO2 cylinder that gives you 60 litres of sparkling water from your Quooker tap.
Availability and maintenance
The boiling water tap for the CUBE is available in combination with all Quooker taps. We supply one CO2 cylinder as standard. When the water jet slows down and there is less carbon dioxide in the water, it means that the CO2 cylinder needs to be replaced. You can easily order new cylinders through Quooker’s webshop. You can return empty CO₂ cylinders to Quooker free of charge. The filters in the CUBE tank last for around one year. When the tank starts to beep, it is time for new filters; you can also order these through Quooker’s webshop.
The CUBE supplies sparkling and chilled water and means you no longer have to buy water in plastic bottles. To obtain sparkling water, a Quooker CO2 cylinder must be connected to the CUBE.
Frequently Asked Questions
No, the strength of the sparkling water is not adjustable.
Quooker recommends that you clean the fan once a year. In addition, you should replace the filters in the CUBE every year. The CUBE will start beeping and the CUBE light on the tank will flash to indicate that the filters need to be replaced. These can be ordered in Quooker’s webshop.
The CUBE will work with any systems produced after October 2017. These taps have serial numbers beginning with QW1 or QW0. The tanks have serial numbers beginning with VCW or CCW.
There is no more need for plastic bottles and you won’t have to throw away used bottles of water because they’ve been open for too long and have gone flat. With the CUBE, you dispense precisely the amount that you need at a given moment. And there is a saving for society too. It will no longer be necessary to transport plastic bottles by lorry.
The CUBE requires 230 V and has a wattage of 100 W. What if there is only one socket available? Then we recommend that you use the Quooker power switch.
The CUBE keeps 1,5 to 2 litres of sparkling water on hand at a temperature of 5 – 12 degrees.
The CUBE can dispense an unlimited amount of filtered water. The filtered water feed passes through the chilled sparkling water which in turn reduces the temperature of the filtered water by around 5 degrees as it is dispensed. The temperature of the filtered chilled water will therefore vary depending on the incoming water temperature and the amount of chilled sparkling water inside the CUBE tank. When emptied completely, it takes around 40 minutes for the 2 litres of sparkling water to fully cool down again.
The filters in the CUBE can process around 6,000 litres of water. For hygienic reasons, the filters need replacing after 12 months. You can order a new filter in Quooker’s webshop.
Only CO₂ cylinders supplied by Quooker can be used in the CUBE. No other cylinders are compatible and they would void the warranty.
Used cylinders must be returned to Quooker and a free service is available to do this. Read more here.
