Kitchen Faucet Couture


Stylish extras give your guests the impression they have stepped into a gourmet kitchen, even if you're not a gourmet chef. Create a culinary masterpiece with the latest upscale kitchen products that not only cater to your sense of style, but to your sense of taste as well.

Kitchen Aids
Dramatic kitchen statements can be made with remarkable commercial-grade cooking tools now available for your home.

Perhaps your family enjoys wood-fired pizza and artisan breads. Add a hearth-stone oven to make these dishes in your own kitchen. For extraordinary roasting, look to a commercial-style rotisserie for delicious duck, lamb or chicken.

Gourmet chefs seldom encounter any limitations at the sink, so why should you? The sleek new 90°™ kitchen faucet from Moen features an ergonomically designed pullout wand with an easy-turn swivel joint on the end of the hose and three functions: spray, aerated stream and pause. Plus, the faucet's modern styling is the perfect complement to today's contemporary, high-end kitchen.

A heavy-gauge sink featuring sleek, angled sidewalls and deep basins, also previously found only in commercial kitchens, is another must-have item for today's luxury kitchens. Constructed of high-quality 16-gauge stainless steel in single or double-bowl configurations, Moen's Lancelot® Professional Sinks feature SoundSHIELD™ noise protection undercoating for a quiet sink experience and 10-inch deep bowls to hold large pots and pans.

See Double
To create the ultimate luxury kitchen, two appliances are better than one. And now the double oven, long a staple in gourmet kitchens, has gone high-tech. Program your oven to cook your dinner; a refrigeration function keeps the food chilled until it’s time to heat up. Better yet, new turbo ovens are available that use forced air and microwave technology for significantly quicker cooking.

And seeing double also means double-duty convenience. Install a drawer dishwasher in your island prep station for quick clean-up, while your main dishwasher does the heavy-duty work. Add warming or refrigeration drawers to aid in the food preparation process, and added convenience will be just an arm’s length away.

Wine Not?
The ideal temperature for wine storage is 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit, with moderately damp and dark conditions. Since most kitchens are designed to be welcoming and cheery, you may want to consider adding your own wine cellar. Whether a stand-alone room that holds 500 bottles, or a smaller refrigerated unit that preserves 10, there are a host of options to keep your wine collection easily accessible and perfectly stored.

Finishing Touch
Culinary fixtures and appliances have recently undergone a style makeover to accommodate consumer preference for Old World finishes, such as oil rubbed bronze, pewter and brushed bronze. Look for new products in these finishes to complement your décor.
New options, new products and tasteful luxuries ensure that the sky is the limit when designing the gourmet kitchen of your dreams. is the leading online retailer of Faucets.
