Kitchen mixer tap features to look for
The BLANCO buying guide to selecting the best mixer tap for your kitchen.
Firstly, you may need to consider your water pressure. Cold water should be direct from the mains, but the hot water pressure can make a big difference to how well the tap performs, and that's down to your individual water heating system.

Single-lever or twin-handle tap
The single-lever kitchen mixer tap is becoming increasingly popular. Both the temperature and flow of the water can be regulated with just one hand; a crucial advantage compared to traditional, twin-handle kitchen taps . Another plus point is that a single-lever mixer uses less water than twin-handle mixer tap because the temperature is adjusted quickly without having to run the water for a long time. Nevertheless, twin-handle kitchen taps are still very popular in the UK and BLANCO offers a wide range of both single-lever and twin-handle taps.
A pull-out spray increases the working radius considerably compared to kitchen taps with a cylindrical spout. Your cooking vessels do not have to be in the kitchen sink for you to fill them, you can easily rinse dirt away from the bowl or clean the sink drainer. Many sprays can be switched from a normal jet to a spray jet especially relevant when cleaning vegetables. Mousseur (aerator) sprays are ideal for kitchen taps with an L-shaped or U-shaped spout.
WIth today's emphasis on healthy lifestyles demand for fresh filtered water is increasing. The BLANCO FILTRA Pro kitchen tap combines both the standard supply and fresh filtered water in one tap. The under-sink filter cartridge of our filtered water taps acts against potentially undesirable elements to supply top quality drinking water on demand. As well as removing sediment and dirt, the filtered water taps are effective against a wide range of contaminants including chemicals, toxins and heavy metals, without removing essential minerals.
