Faucet Technology Enables Hands-free Operation

Select kitchen faucet functionality requires neither a power supply nor any additional equipment.

Select kitchen faucet functionality requires neither a power supply nor any additional equipment.

According to a study, people spend roughly 1-2 hours a day in the kitchen. That’s over 500 hours, or 23 days a year. While so much time is spent in the space, a recent study shows that only 19 percent of Americans are happy with their kitchen. Specifically, 42 percent of respondents indicated that their kitchen is not big enough, reporting that this affects their ability to cook. As it turns out, a solution doesn’t necessarily require a renovation—a quick upgrade of kitchen fixtures can do the trick. Hansgrohe’s kitchen faucet range was developed to meet this market demand, freeing up space and allowing cooks to be masters of their culinary domain.

Select Function for Convenience and Movement

Hansgrohe Select technology is integrated into new kitchen models including the Talis Select S, Metris Select, and the AXOR Citterio Select collections. Developed in collaboration with Phoenix Design, Select enables hands-free operation. Select functionality requires neither a power supply nor any additional equipment hidden in the cabinet below. Users turn water on and off by engaging the Select button with the back of the wrist or elbow, contributing to increased workflow around the sink. Since the flow is shut on and off with just a push, temperature and volume can be preset. Turning the lever handle, which is ergonomically shaped for comfort, sets the temperature and water volume. When the lever handle remains open, the setting is maintained.
