Operating versions for kitchen mixer taps

Classic or fancy? A single-lever mixer or a dual-lever tap, with or without a hose? Kitchen mixer taps come in many different designs. Which version works best for your home?


Mixer tap with sensor interface

Splash. A pot slips out of your grasp, sending water splashing out of the sink and onto the floor. Darn! Somehow, you never seem to have enough hands. But what if you could hold the pot steady while also operating the mixer tap and filling the pot with the water you need to cook spaghetti? Of course, you could put the pot in the sink and wait, but that only works if the sink is empty. There’s an easier way: simply hold the pot under the mixer tap. Activating the sensor allows you to fill up the pot without touching the mixer tap.

No more overflowing. Water is a precious resource. It helps to save every drop that you can.

Do you want cool or red hot water? Pre-set the temperature that you need. Wave your hand over the sensor to get the water flowing. Wave over it a second time, and the water stops. Just like you wanted. How about if you only need a little water to make tea? Or if you want to fill a pot up to the brim? The amount can be adjusted, too.
