When you entertain guests, you want to make sure you have as much help as you can. And while that probably includes your guests themselves, that can also mean your kitchen fixtures—especially if it helps alleviate possible physical discomfort.
If you’re getting ready to cook at the stovetop and fill a pot with a lot of water, you know how challenging it can be to haul it to the stove. And since a gallon of fresh water weighs nearly 8 ½ pounds, imagine the havoc carrying a pot with 2 or 3 gallons can cause on your back, shoulders, and arms.
A pot filler mounts on the countertop or the wall near the stovetop, so all you need to do is swing the spout over the pot you’re going to fill and turn the water on. When you’re done, just swing this versatile little fixture out of the way. This not only cuts down on the time it takes to prepare the food, but it also eliminates the need to carry a sloshing pot full of water over to the stove top.
And just like your standard kitchen faucet, a pot filler can come in a number of different looks, styles and themes to match your existing kitchen fixtures.
A pot filler is designed to decrease the time you’re actually cooking in the kitchen, so you can enjoy the company of your guests. What you do with that extra time is totally up to you. If you’re ready to purchase, start shopping for a pot filler! Or learn more from our pot filler buying guide.
