10 Easy Pieces: Commercial-Style Kitchen Faucets

Issue 1 · Cabin Rustic · January 7, 2009

Restaurant efficiency and professional engineering meet in these commercial-style kitchen faucets, which allow for easy rinsing and washing and provide precise control and flexibility, no matter how full the sink. The faucets included in our roundup are suitable for residential settings (not all commercial faucets are) and all feature solid brass construction. Note that some include a sprayer only and others a sprayer with an independent faucet—the most functional choice, in our opinion.
