According to the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) and Prognos, a Swiss private household consumes on average 15 per cent of its total energy needs for cooking and dishwashing and 9 per cent for cooling and freezing. Added to this is the share of total electricity consumption for space heating, hot water, air conditioning, ventilation, building services, lighting and other electrical appliances. All in all, a household is likely to consume about one third of its energy needs in the kitchen. There is a lot of potential for saving electricity.
Baking or cooking without preheating reduces electricity consumption by up to a fifth.
Cooking with a lid reduces electricity consumption by up to a quarter.
Look for the energy efficiency class when replacing old kitchen appliances. More energy efficient devices cost a little more, but they pay for themselves quickly because they consume less electricity. Of course, this also applies to all other electrical appliances in your household.
Only in the bathroom do we use more water than in the kitchen. With a few simple measures, you can minimise water consumption without having to restrict yourself:
With a Quooker system you save electricity, time and water. The tap with boiling water reservoir provides 100 degree hot water instantly. The reservoir is installed in the kitchen base cabinet and connected to the cold water pipe, the Quooker tap replaces the traditional tap. In the vacuum-insulated reservoir under the worktop, 3 or 7 litres of water are heated to 110 degrees. The air in the insulation jacket becomes so thin that no heat can escape. That's why the smart water system needs less electricity than an energy-saving lamp to keep the water temperature just above boiling point.
The COMBI reservoir mixes hot water with cold water from the tap for hot water. Once the boiler supplies hot water, Quooker no longer supplies hot water.
With the optional CUBE, a Quooker system delivers all types of water: hot, cold and boiling plus chilled sparkling or still water without a long waiting time. This reduces a lot of plastic waste and protects the environment.
