Has anyone here used a deck mounted pot filler? If you have, would you please post pictures. i did a search but nothing came up.
Mine is going in next week. If no one else responds I'll post pics then
That looks wonderful! Does it interfere at all and can it reach right across the cooktop?
I haven't found it to interfere at all w/ anything I do. Granted, I don't really cook and don't ever have like 4-5 burners going- but in general, when we do use the cooktop, it is not in the way. It does reach all the burners although I tend to use it on a closer burner rather than stretching it all the way to the far corner.
I'm not trying to be smart, I really want to know if this is something that should become a part of our kitchen - can someone help me to understand why you need a pot filler?
To me, the issue really isn't filling a pot and putting it on the burner, but more taking it off if it's full of hot water. I mean, even if I have a pot filler to fill it initially, ultimately I still need to move the heavy pot to the sink to drain out the water, right?
Is there something I'm overlooking?
Andreak, I think you have a valid concern. A better solution might be a long hose attached to the faucet at a nearby prep sink that can reach the pots. Emptying those heavy pots is a very good reason to have a prep sink nearby the stove.
andreak100 the pot filler fills a pot much faster than a faucet b/c it has a higher flow rate.
I also really like the way they look, which was the reason I got mine.
I have an entire page dedicated to pot fillers on my site! Hopefully it will shed light on the different types and what to watch out for design wise.... I am a kitchen designer and the page details what I have learned about installing them!
They're cool... My clients love them...
