Q: Dear Ed, I’ve been looking for a new kitchen faucet and have a few questions about the types of faucets. Besides the price, what is the fundamental difference between a standard kitchen faucet and a semi-professional kitchen faucet?
– Paula, Maine
A: If you consider yourself a chef or foodie in a busy eat-in kitchen, you may want to switch to a semi-professional kitchen faucet.
Basically, semi-professional kitchen fittings are attractively designed and offer additional functions that are normally not found in standard kitchen fittings. Some semi-professional functions for kitchen faucets include easy-to-clean and easily accessible faucet surfaces and surfaces, a powerful multi-function spray head for cleaning dishes, pans and sinks, and high arching or springing. loaded tap spout for filling large pots. Another good thing about semi-pro faucets is that they can be installed on most existing or new kitchen-living room sinks.
Bottom Line: If you’re a chef, or just looking for something easier to clean, a semi-professional faucet style can be a faucet that works for any kitchen.
