ONE POT FILLER BRINGS HOME THE VERY LATEST IN KITCHEN DESIGN

KOHLER, Wis. (February 13, 2008) – Kallista, leading provider of luxury plumbing products, featured the One pot filler at the 2008 International Home Builders Show in Orlando, Fla. More than ever, kitchens have become the place to congregate, and budding culinary novices and skilled aficionados alike are designing their kitchens with cooking in mind. From state-of-the-art equipment to breathtaking interior design, kitchens have taken on an important persona within the home, inspired by individual taste and lifestyle.

Included in its fashionable line of Kallista kitchen and bar faucets is the minimally designed One pot filler offered in wall-mount and deck-mount styles. Thoughtfully designed for ultimate performance, the One pot filler features an innovative joint that is sleek and unobtrusive maximizing water flow for filling containers as well as delivering strength through solid brass construction and withstanding deterioration even after thousands of cycles. This exclusive, patented design allows the pot filler to retract almost flush to the wall or deck area when not in use. The One pot filler also offers quarter-turn ceramic disc valves, which eliminate spout dripping and guarantee durability, while the anti-rotational flange design simplifies installation and improves installation aesthetics to wall-mount styles.

While wall-mount pot fillers have been available for some time, the installation process is usually limited to either new construction or remodeling projects because access to the wall is needed in order to run water supply pipes. The innovative deck-mount configuration overcomes this limitation, allowing supply pipes to run behind or inside existing kitchen cabinetry making it ideal for island installations or remodeling projects by significantly reducing the disturbance of surrounding areas.

The One wall and deck mount designs have an overall reach of 26 inches when fully extended. Three finishes, Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver and Brushed Nickel, complement the look and feel of a range of kitchen designs.
