Pull-out

Practical and preferred by professional chefs, pull-out devices make it easy to direct a water stream onto the area that needs to be washed. This means stubborn stains or debris from a pan can be removed without vigorous scrubbing, making light work of washing up or rinsing veg.

Swivel

Designed with a twisting mechanism, swivel fixtures allow the whole neck to be rotated up to 270-degrees, making it a great option for multi-bowl sinks. This swivel motion also allows the device to be moved out of the way when draining bulkier pans to improve accessibility for all ages and stages of life.
