  1. very interesting information. you’ve found a very good niche with not a lot of coverage, and appliances like this are something you definitely do not want to blindly buy, but information and reviews on such products can be hard to find online! this site is a good resource of information

  2. I am seeing more and more kitchens that have the “Industrial” look. Especially kitchens in high end lofts. The commercial faucets with sprayers are really quite practical for people that have a “Natural Kitchen”. What I mean by a natural kitchen is that the kitchen is set up for folks that eat organic and health food.
