ABOUT KITCHEN FAUCETS
Kitchen faucets are usually made from chromium plated cast brass. Other finishes include natural brass, plated gold, and antique brown finish. Most kitchen faucets now take the form of a mixer tap, which may have either a mechanical or electronic means of controlling temperature. Mixer taps provide a single stream of warm water, avoiding the risk of scalding. A common design of kitchen faucet is to have a single handle, which moves up and down to control volume of water, and sideways to control the temperature of the water.
