How To Pick The Best Pre-Rinse Kitchen Faucet for Your Home

We’ve all been there—cooking a delicious meal only to end up with a sink full of dishes. Standing in front of your sink as you scrub away food debris is a humdrum task that can easily be finished in half the amount of time. How? With a pre-rinse kitchen faucet, of course.

What Is a Pre-Rinse Faucet?

Notable for their spring spout detail, pre-rinse faucets are often found in commercial kitchens. However, they can make a great addition to your home, as well. Also called spring spout faucets, pre-rinsers use high-velocity water spray to remove food particles from plates, utensils, and cookware before they head to the dishwasher. The spring detail not only offers enhanced style, but its flexibility also allows greater reach for full sink coverage.

Why Should I Get a Pre-Rinse Kitchen Faucet?

The modern household is a busy household. Not only do pre-rinse faucets bring commercial design to your home kitchen, they also make dishwashing a breeze. When you purchase a pre-rinse faucet, you can deal with dirty dishes faster than with a standard faucet—which means more free time for you.

If you have more than one sink in your kitchen, installing a pre-rinse faucet in your main sink can be an extremely beneficial upgrade. Pre-rinse faucets are perfect for tackling tough, baked-on food on pots and pans, thanks to their ability to handle high levels of water pressure and flow. For smaller sinks like an island or bar sink, a pull-down faucet or a smaller bar faucet may be more appropriate for lighter tasks like filling glasses or rinsing produce.

Pre-rinse faucets are not just for the kitchen; they can also be useful in other areas of the home, such as the laundry room or mudroom. For instance, a pre-rinse faucet can be used to help quickly remove dirt and stains from clothes or shoes in the laundry room or mudroom.

A pre-rinse faucet is a versatile tool that offers many conveniences, regardless of the setting. Whether you're washing dishes, cleaning clothes, or tackling other cleaning tasks around your home, a pre-rinse faucet can help finish the job with ease.

Key Points To Consider When Buying a Pre-Rinse Kitchen Faucet

There are a few key points to consider when purchasing a pre-rinse faucet. Here are some important factors to consider before making your decision.

Stream & Spray

Similar to our pull-down and pull-out kitchen faucets, Gerber’s pre-rinse faucets feature a dual-function sprayhead. This sprayhead allows the user to toggle between a single, steady stream for simple washing and a powerful spray for heavier rinsing. The toggle button can hold either setting for convenience.

One Hole Installation

All of Gerber’s pre-rinse faucets offer one hole (or single hole) installation that requires only a single countertop hole for mounting. The single handle operation offers convenient volume and temperature control. Additionally, all of our pre-rinse faucets come complete with integrated supply lines and mounting hardware for fast installation. For replacing a previous two handle faucet installation, a cover plate is sometimes included or can be purchased separately to conceal the extra countertop holes.

Other Features to Consider

All of Gerber’s pre-rinse faucets offer stunning designs and details, a water-saving 1.75 gpm flow rate, 360-degree spout rotation, and drip-free ceramic cartridge operation. For easier kitchen cleanup, a pre-rinse kitchen faucet is just what you need.
