  • A low-maintenance, spot-free faucet from Kraus

Kraus' Artec Pro 2-Function Commercial Style Pre-Rinse Kitchen Faucet with Pull-Down Spring Spout is a durable and magnetic docking faucet with a pull down spring spout and pull down sprayer nozzle. This faucet meets commercial specifications for its safety features and looks great in any commercial kitchen.

The spout is high-arc allowing you to spray water with ease through large cookware. The pull down spout and sprayer nozzle have a solid spring action that resists water build-up to maintain a powerful spray, even when using the faucet for extended periods.

The pre-rinse brew sprayer is located just below the pull down spout. It offers a strong spray to blast away dirt and debris from pots and pans so as to prevent bacteria and infections. The sprayer is located at an angle which allows you to rinse large pots and pans with a safe distance from the faucet.

The faucet is designed with spot free fins for a clean and durable all-metal look. The sprayer also gives long lasting performance and resists wear and tear from water. I love this pick for its ease of cleaning and its long-lasting performance.
