Hansgrohe's Metris Select kitchen mixer features a savvy button, offering users unprecedented freedom of movement and enabling them to work smoothly at the sink
Rinsing, chopping, browning, cooking, baking, tossing, tasting, seasoning – working in the kitchen involves many different chores and can be lots of fun, especially when our kitchen tools and facilities are convenient and easy to work with. Time and again we find ourselves going back to the kitchen's water source, maybe to fill up a pot or to rinse some vegetables or to wash our floury hands after baking. But how is it possible to turn the mixer on and off while carrying a heavy pot? Whenever baking or cooking, do you also find yourself needing to clean the tap that you've been using with your dirty hands? Mixer specialist Hansgrohe is introducing unprecedented freedom of movement to the kitchen in the form of its Metris Select kitchen mixer. Its Select button means that the water can be turned on and off even while you're on the go, without impeding the flow of work. This proves that fun and convenience can indeed go hand in hand, even when tackling kitchen chores.
As with conventional single lever mixers, with Metris Select you also turn on the water flow at the handle and set the required temperature and water amount. However, the user can subsequently terminate the flow of water on and off via the Select button which is located on the front of the spout. The lever handle remains open, with the water volume and water temperature preset. The fact that the button is large, with a very legible on/off symbol, means that you can also turn the water jet on and off using the back of your hand or your elbow. And you do not need electricity or any extra equipment in your floor unit to be able to enjoy this added convenience. The technology behind Select is purely mechanical. A newly developed shut-off valve closes and opens the water flow at the touch of a button.
