Of all the fixtures and appliances the kitchen faucet is probably the one we use the most. According to faucet manufacturer KWC, the average family uses the kitchen faucet more than 40 times a day. Whether it's hand washing, rinsing off dishes, filling a pasta pot or washing vegetables, the kitchen faucet gets a real workout every day. So when it's time to buy a new faucet you need to know how to choose one that will do it's job and will keep doing it for years to come. But, not to worry, this guide should take much of the fear and loathing out of selecting a new faucet.
There are generally two types of kitchen faucets in use today. Single-handle faucets are centersets where hot and cold are controlled by one lever or knob that's often part of the spout. The most common type of kitchen faucet is the widespread kitchen faucet. This type of faucet requires three separate holes and consists of the hot-water valve, the cold-water valve and the spout all being mounted separately.
When you get a low faucet, you might have problem filling up a big pot with water. In such cases, you may prefer to look for one which has its spout higher like a goose neck instead. You have to also consider the way you turn the handle to control the flow of water. Some may turn upward while some may turn outward in order to get the water supply running. You have to try them out to feel if it is comfortable enough for you so that it will not be an obstacle for you when you are washing in the kitchen.
