FILTRATA VS QUOOKER

The boiling water tap market has increasingly grown thanks to the birth of the pandemic. Kitchens transformed into home offices which made consumers realise the value of an instant hot water tap. According to research, 1 in 5 new kitchens installed over the past two years included a boiling water tap. Four-in-one technology and filtered water are highly desirable bringing ease, convenience and efficiency to your space. 

 

Exclusive to Lusso, our 4 in 1 Filtrata Boiling Water Tap provides four different temperatures at the push of a button giving you freshly filtered boiling water, filtered cold water, and standard hot and cold water in an instant. Built with a fully insulated 360-degree spout and childproof lever which means it’s always cool to touch providing extra safety for children. Luxury knurled detailing elevates the aesthetic of our Filtrata inspired by the gold standard motoring brand, Bentley. It also provides practicality with enhanced gripping opposed to a smooth metal surface. Finished in one of our three signature colourways of brushed gold, matte black or brushed stainless. 

 

Similar to our Filtrata Tap, Quooker was the very first boiling water tap in the world. They have a selection of styles that all perform different functions including the Quooker Fusion which allows flow of cold, hot and boiling water from one tap. However, unlimited filtered cold water is not built in this system, but is an option to purchase separately. Similar to the Filtrata, the Fusion tap is available in a square or round spout and comes in five different finishes including gold, black and stainless steel parallel to Lusso’s collection.

CLEANING YOUR FILTRATA 

As with all of our brassware, care should be taken so that your taps remain clean and radiant for as long as possible. As the Filtrata is a high-quality product, it should be treat with care as surfaces will wear if they are not cleaned correctly.

 

To do this, you should use a non-abrasive cleaner - such as a soft cloth - with warm water and washing up liquid. Abrasive cleanders such as Cif will stretch the surface.
