Why Pot Fillers Are a Kitchen Necessity

In most kitchens, there is one faucet available — the faucet mounted on the kitchen sink. However, an extra faucet option that many kitchens lack is the pot filler.
Homeowners considering the addition of a pot filler for their kitchen might wonder, “Will this faucet live up to all its hype?” The answer is yes! Pot fillers are truly a new kitchen necessity, providing an array of benefits. Read on to learn more about why every kitchen should feature this practical and beautiful piece.
Improved Kitchen Flow
In many kitchens, if more than one person is trying to help prepare a meal, the flow of the space becomes difficult to navigate. People begin to get in each other’s way as the meal preparation is in motion.
One big reason for this issue is due to the kitchen sink. Everyone needs to access the same singular faucet to rinse off dishes and fill up pots and pans.
A pot filler makes it easy for multiple people to work on meal prep at once, without stepping on each other’s toes. With an additional water source, the kitchen sink traffic jam becomes a thing of the past.
Filling Made Easy
The design of many kitchen faucets is not ideal for filling large pots and pans. It can be cumbersome to try to place a large stockpot in a sink, fill it, and pull it back out of the sink without losing a lot of water.
A pot filler is mounted high enough on the wall by the stove to ensure that water can fill even the tallest pots without hassle. This makes it easier and far more efficient to fill pots and pans. Pot filters also make it easier to fill shorter pans faster, as the pan filled with water does not need to travel from the sink to the stove. Instead, pots and pans are filled on the stove with one quick flip of a handle, and the heat is turned on in the same place.
Finally, since pots and pans fill with water right on the stove, fewer spills occur, which leads to improved kitchen safety. When moving a pot from the sink to the stove, water often spills, leading to a serious slipping hazard.
