Pot Filler Faucets - Kitchen Convenience
A luxury item for the kitchen
Danze Opulence Pot Filler
Pot filler faucets used to be the sole domain of restaurant kitchens, but recent times have seen them become a popular fixture of many gourmet home kitchens. These are special type of faucet – their design allows them to be pulled out from the wall, adding the luxury of not having to haul heavy pots to the sink for filling. They usually consist of a number of metal arms that swivel to allow for maneuvering.
Basically, this type of faucet is a luxury item rather than a necessity for your kitchen. It looks great, but its perceived practicality is overshadowed by the fact that while you are able to fill the pot at the stove, you will still have to lug that same full pot to the sink to wash it after use.
Convenience of Pot Fillers
Features to look for in a good pot filler faucet include shut off valves at both the wall and the spout; good maneuverability and spout reach; and double-jointed spouts.
Most brands on the market are created as a single-hole faucet that connects only to the cold water supply, but some brands such as the Chinese Range faucet by Fisher Manufacturing are able to be set up for either hot or cold water.
These types of faucets are available in a number of different finishes and colors that will allow you to co-ordinate with the rest of your kitchen.
Costs for this type of faucet vary throughout the different brands available on the market. A basic set up will cost just over $100, whereas, depending on finishes and the features on the faucet, the higher-end models can cost several hundred dollars.
