LUMBERTON, NJ, April 2010 – BLANCO, German manufacturer of finely-crafted sinks and faucets, introduces a new collection of professional grade pot fillers – including GRACE™ and CANTATA™ – with performance features like a unique swivel aerator that can move to target the center of a pot for filling and shift to rinse down the sides afterwards for soaking. Dual ceramic shut-off valves offer added safety while a generous arm reach adds convenience.
“Pot fillers have become a mainstay in kitchen design convenience as they save backs, hands and wrists from hauling sink water to the stove,” says Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “One gallon of water weighs a little over 8.3 pounds. For a large pot of pasta, you could carry as much as 20 pounds of water. Cutting that load by 50% saves time and energy, which is especially welcome when entertaining,” says Maicher.
