Above, a pot filler in this Christopher Peacock-inspired kitchen makes filling heavy pots a breeze
There are many things I love about smart kitchens and a pot filler is toward the top of my long list. Yes, that handy little spout that prevents you from having to make the trek from sink to stove with a heavy urn of water. Those who have them rave, and those who don’t, well–here’s my list of reasons why you should!
- Kitchen sinks aren’t very deep. This means that unless you have a detachable sink spout, you’re often found leaning your pasta pot at a very obscure angle to fill it with water. Or even worse, you’re filling up a bowl and transferring it to your pasta pot. Either way, a pot filler solves your problem.
- They look cool. And isn’t that reason enough? The extendable spouts come in all sorts of finishes and while they are modern appliances, they have a variety of styles from modern to traditional.
- Kitchens are for cooking; gyms are for workouts. Cooking should be a time for relaxing…but try picking up that Dutch oven full of water for boiling potatoes, and it becomes anything but.
- Splashes can lead to slips. If you have ever splashed a little out of your pot when taking it from sink to stove, you can appreciate this slight stretch of a reason to get a pot filler.
