The new Quooker CUBE Next Generation: “Better in all respects”


Actually, as the slogan says, the Quooker can do everything. Now there is also the saving of valuable energy. Read what the new Quooker CUBE Next Generation has to offer and why, according to managing director Daniel Hörnes, “better in all respects“Is than its predecessor.

The wonderfully light-footed, dutch accent is penetrating the nation’s television sets again these days, something the Germans have come to appreciate so much since Rudi Carrell and Lina de Mol. The real star of the TV clip, which runs at prime time, is not a person, but the one Quooker boiling water tap. Its slogan is as catchy as it is self-confident: “The faucet that can do everything. “

The Quooker has achieved what many founders dream of: a product that is so good that one wonders why it wasn’t invented much sooner. A product that other appliances in the kitchen makes redundant and simplifies life comfortably. Finally, a product that has presumably been allowed to move into a large majority of newly planned kitchens for a number of years.

Available from the end of the year: the new Quooker CUBE Next Generation

The boiling water tap has turned from a practical kettle replacement to an all-rounder developed, with which boiling, warm, cold, chilled sparkling and filtered still water can be obtained. This is possible with the Quooker CUBE reservoir.

So what, the inclined buyer asks, should there be a product update? At the end of the year, the company of the same name will provide the answer: the “Quooker CUBE Next Generation” is there. And above all, it relies on more sustainability and customer requests.

New to the Quooker CUBE Next Generation: lower volume

Quooker is placing the new one at area30, the wide-ranging exhibition center on the A30 kitchen mile Quooker CUBE Next Generation. What can the product do compared to its predecessor? “The new Cube Next Generation is better in all respects“, Says Daniel Hörnes, Managing Director of Quooker Germany. They listened carefully to what customers of the Quooker wanted for future further development.

Some things were not that easy to implement: for example, the Quooker decibel number asked, the Quooker works absolutely silently in standby mode. Only when in use does it bubble briefly when the hot water flows out of the tap and it hisses with heat.

Basically, fittings in Germany and Austria are standardized to a maximum “Volume” of 20-30 db (A)which is roughly equivalent to a whisper. Many modern fittings are significantly lower in sleep mode, at under 20 decibels, which is equivalent to the ticking of a wristwatch and is imperceptible to many. Either way: Even the indicated noise level on the Quooker CUBE Next Generation has now been improved and the volume throttled again.

More compact, lighter and with better flow speed in still water

Other changes to the Quooker CUBE Next Generation are more noticeable: this is how it flows filtered, chilled, still water of the CUBE, according to Hörnes so far “the Achilles’ heel of the Quooker”, now just as fast as conventional water from the faucet, namely at 2.4 liters per minute. This means that large water carafes can be filled up in no time at all. Improvements are also touted in the sparkling water mode. Here can the intensity of the bubbles with the new Quooker CUBE Next Generation self-employed will.

In addition, with the new model of the CUBE Next Generation 50% of the previous weight savedso that the product with all the containers is now only 11 kilograms brings on the scales. This is made possible by an outdated, compact size of 27 cm in length and 13 cm in width, which leaves enough space in the cabinet under the sink for a conventional waste system.

Daniel Hörnes points out, however, that many planners Keep the space under the sink free for the Quooker anywayin order not to let the cables and hoses laid there get dirty. The waste is already better integrated elsewhere, for example at waist height in the drawer Next the sink. This means that (organic) rubbish that arises when chipping can be wiped directly into the container instead of sticking halfway through the sink and having to be laboriously wiped out.

The new Quooker CUBE Next Generation is even more energy-efficient – despite the larger volume

But the best comes at the end: that too Emission of waste heat as well as the required energy of the already economical Quooker were able to do it again with the new Quooker CUBE Next Generation cut by half will. A new touch display helps customers at a glance Fill level of the CO2 cylinder to check; In addition, automatic commissioning can now be carried out at home alone, as numerous manual steps are no longer necessary.

Also worth mentioning is that Expansion of the CO2 cartridges for the CUBE Next Generation by a 3 kg bottle, which for 420 liters of sparkling water sufficient. In addition to longer use in private households, public areas such as schools, shops or fitness studios could also benefit from the Quooker’s supply.

Every third Quooker is black – and more than 70% buy the CUBE

Visually everything stays the same. The most popular is that Color: Black, reveals Daniel Hörnes, more than anyone third quooker will be chosen in this nuance. The Quooker Flex and Quooker Fusion Square models are roughly on par in terms of popularity, followed by other models based on personal preference, such as the Nordic Twintaps or the Fusion Round. 70% Incidentally, all buyers opt for the large overall package of the CUBES. Why not when you can have everything with it?

Although Quooker emphasizes a innovation-driven company the brand does not follow every trend in the fittings business: so be it no Quooker with sensor plannedthat can be operated without contact, says Daniel Hörnes. On the one hand, Quooker’s promise of security has not yet been implemented. On the other hand, this technology will in the long run “not enforce“.

And also foldable fittings, as they are, for example, as Front window fittings or be chosen just for a puristic look in the kitchen, Quooker will not be available for the foreseeable future. “The Quooker system, which is so apparently simple,” says Hörnes, “is actually enormously complex. Other fittings are made up of around 12 components – the Quooker is 96 individual parts. “

The enthusiasm for the Quooker, mainly due to its high functionality is bought, that doesn’t affect it. With a energy-efficient, quiet and powerful model Quooker CUBE Next Generation the brand of the same name ensures that the modern boiling water tap will be with us for a long time – and hopefully the Dutch voice on television too.
