Birko Electrics started life just prior to World War II, making soldering irons for local markets. During the war, a need was identified for some from of portable food and drink heating vessel.
Birko designed and produced the Food and Drink Heater, an electric jug with a concealed element so that the food as well as liquid, could be heated.
After the war, Birko continued manufacturing Food and Drink Heaters. Up to this point, all Birko products had been made from copper and then chrome plated. Copper was replaced by stainless steel in Hot Water Urns for a more reliable, hard wearing and cleaner product which was suitable for commercial applications such as hospitals, factories and Government departments.
Now in the 21st century, Birko is going from strength to strength. It has expanded its product range even further with its TempoTronic and DownUnder instant boiling and chilled water systems, and introduced to the market a boiling and chilled water appliance: the Birko TwinTemp. An ideal addition to any domestic or commercial kitchen.
