Pre-Rinse Kitchen Faucet Features and Functions
With so many kitchen faucets to choose from, it’s hard for homeowners to narrow down their choices. The pre-rinse kitchen faucet is one of the best options available, especially for busy families that use their kitchen often. Find out what makes the pre-rinse kitchen faucet special and how it can help in your busy kitchen.
The Handy Pre-Rinse Spout
The biggest feature of this type of faucet is the pre-rinse spout that is the design’s namesake. Not only does this spout pull out to conveniently double as a spray nozzle, but it also offers a high-pressure spray that knocks food particles loose from plates and pans alike. Proper pre-rinsing is the best way to get dishes cleaner, whether the family prefers to wash them by hand or in the dishwasher. This design comes from commercial kitchens where stuck-on food residue requires plenty of pressure. These pre-rinse faucets, such as the Gourmetier LS8500CTL from Kingston Brass, are designed for home kitchens instead.
Single and dual lever designs allow the user complete control over the water flow rate and temperature. While knobs and other handles require a free hand to turn, these ADA-approved designs require only the nudge of a wrist or elbow to turn the water on. It’s much easier to clean dirty hands without spreading the mess with these easy-to-use lever handles.
Durable and Beautiful Finishes
These modern faucets are available in all the traditional finishes needed to match various types of kitchen decor. Since these faucets are built with heavy use in mind, the finishes are also built to last. Whether a homeowner prefers brass, stainless steel, matte black, or any other style, we have pre-rinse faucets in a finish to match here at Kingston Brass.
High Pot-Filling Arch
High-arch faucets are often referred to as pot fillers since there’s extra space for fitting large vessels under the spout. Between the high arch of the pre-rinse faucet and its retractable spout, it’s easy to fill or rinse even the largest kitchen tools and appliances. By picking a pre-rinse faucet, a homeowner can get the benefits of a pot filler design at the same time.
