How safe is my Quooker tap?

All Quooker taps feature a push-and-turn handle. The Fusion even has a double push-and-turn system to prevent accidental activation of the boiling water function. The taps also have insulated spouts so that they should never be hot to the touch. The water is delivered in a fine aerated spray rather than a solid jet, ensuring that you are able to move your hands to safety in time. This minimises burn risks.
What is sometimes a surprise is the that it’s actually much safer having a Quooker tap than a kettle in the kitchen. The Quooker tap is installed at the back of the worktop over the sink and cannot be pulled towards the front of the worktop. 

A kettle, once boiled, contains an average of between 1.1 and 1.7 litres of boiling water. If this is
tipped over a person, particularly a young child, it can do serious, extensive and some-times, sadly,
permanent harm.

The Quooker tap dispenses boiling water in a steady flow in a spray format. The aerated delivery
allows you to pass a hand through the flow without scalding yourself. Naturally, you wouldn’t want
to keep your hand in the flow of boiling water, but you’d snatch your hand away as soon as you felt
the heat. What makes a huge and critical difference is that by comparison you may get a few drops
of boiling water on your skin or clothing – you won’t be soaked by over a litre of it.
