Water is on-demand at any step of the cooking and cleaning processes in the foodservice businesses. Therefore, a kitchen pantry cannot be left devoid of a water supply. Pantry faucets are eye-catching taps with their usually high-arc and shiny finish and functionality. These multi-purpose restaurant faucets can make washing and pot filling a breeze.
Commercial kitchens require sinks and faucets designed separately for each task, so a pantry faucet capable of delivering water for various jobs will be efficient. While the faucets in your central kitchen are busy with the day’s work, an additional tap will serve as a backup unit. A faucet in your backline for washing hands, filling pots, kettles, and even buckets is a smart idea. Pantry faucets’ ergonomic design makes them suitable for sizeable containers that are hard to fit in an average sink.
Pantry sink faucets offer a few alternatives. The first feature you need to decide on is the mounting style. Wall-mounted pantry faucets attach to the water lines inside the wall, with the spout sticking over the sink. Deck-mounted ones fit into the sink with the stem resting on it. To achieve the optimum sink-faucet match, you need to consider the spout length carefully. A spout extending too far from the wall or rising too high from the sink may cause water splashes.
You have several options also in the nozzle type. You may wish to pick a swing/swivel spout rather than a rigid one to create a more flexible configuration. Double-jointed and gooseneck nozzles instead of standard ones serve the same purpose. Your need will specify whether a double or single pantry faucet suits your kitchen. A double pantry faucet has two levers for hot and cold-water control.
