Quooker 3 in 1 Tap
One kitchen appliance that is definitely worth the big price tag is the Quooker 3 in 1 tap. It comes in different finishes to suit your kitchen design and features instant 100 degree boiling water as well as normal hot and cold water. If you want to get that added wow factor, you can even add the Quooker cold water filter making it a 4 in 1 tap that has the ability to dispense cold, filtered water.
You may fear that the boiling water tap might pose a safety risk, particularly if you have children. Fortunately, the Quooker tap is childproof with a push and turn handle to avoid anyone accidentally triggering the boiling water feature. What’s more, as a preventative measure to reduce scalding, the tap has insulated sides making it safe to handle immediately after boiling water is dispensed. Finally, the tap features a fine flow of boiling water with aerated spray. This is because fast jet water is more likely to spray and risk scalding.
Next on our list of high end kitchen appliances is the Steak Locker range of smart dry age fridges that have been specially designed to allow anyone to produce high quality dry aged meat. There is a complete range available with a model suitable for the home, restaurants, butcher shops and even grocery stores. The Steak Locker is the world’s first smart dry aging fridge.
You may be wondering ‘what is a dry age fridge? ’So, let’s explain. A dry age fridge is a fridge that combines the modern technology of refrigeration with the traditional craft of dry aging. Dry aging was once a method of meat preservation that relied on cool temperatures and the right humidity levels to make meat last longer than a few days. Today, dry aging is used as a method to naturally amplify the flavours in meat. The process concentrates the natural meaty flavours by drawing moisture from the meat, this also gives the meat an unreplicable tenderness.
Dry aged meat is generally only sold in high end restaurants and is classed as a speciality due to the time and risk involved with producing it. The Steak Locker is an excellent kitchen appliance that allows you to have high quality meat from the comfort of your home. What’s more, this dry age fridge minimises this risk of spoilage often associated with dry aging because of its smart technology and integrated app system. This allows you to track and monitor the fridges temperature, humidity and importantly, the progress of your meat.
