March 2015. For ambitious amateur and professional chefs, the benefits are twofold: with its new AXOR Citterio Select kitchen mixers, AXOR focuses on high-quality design coupled with innovative user convenience and elbow room at the sink unit. You can now turn the water on and off via the Select button, which is located on the mixer neck; and conveniently, the temperature and water volume can be preset. The first AXOR kitchen mixer range to feature Select technology celebrated its premiere on 10 March at the international sanitary trade fair ISH in Frankfurt. New Select function adds more user convenience and elbow room Unlike conventional single lever mixers, on the AXOR Citterio Select you can preset the water volume and the required temperature. You can then control the water via the large Select button on the front of the spout – even using the back of your hand or your elbow, for example if you are holding a pot in each hand or if your fingers are dirty. The lever handle remains open, with the water volume and water temperature preset. This is both intuitive and practical: the Select technology is purely mechanical, so it requires no electricity or extra equipment. Moreover, the ergonomic pull-out spout creates a large operating radius of up to 50 cm, making your work in the kitchen considerably easier. Pots can be filled up without any interruption, plants can be watered and dirt residues in the sink area removed. The AXOR Citterio Select kitchen mixer is also optionally available with a swivel spout. This can be rotated 110, 150, or 360 degrees in any direction and is therefore ideal for double sinks. A variety of solutions for handling water in the kitchen The AXOR mixer ranges for the kitchen offer both amateur and professional chefs a wide range of options for designing their own customised sink unit – depending on how the water in the kitchen needs to be used. If you would like the classic variant of a single lever mixer featuring characteristic joystick operation, then you can opt for the mixers from the AXOR Starck kitchen range. On these models, the base set can be positioned so that the joystick handle is on the left or right of the spout. Left-handed or right-handed people can implement the ideal solution for them, even when it comes to the installation.
The 2-hole mixers from the AXOR Citterio M kitchen range offer you the option of controlling water via a separate handle: the handle can be positioned wherever it is useful for the user and looks attractive. If you don't have enough space on your sink unit for positioning a mixer or if you would like to keep this area clear, then go for the AXOR Uno² kitchen mixer for wall mounting. Here too, the joystick handle can be mounted on the left or right of the spout.
The AXOR kitchen range is available in fifteen particularly scratch-proof and detergent-resistant PVD surface finishes, including chrome, gold finish, red gold, black chrome, nickel, brass, stainless steel finish and bronze.
