LUMBERTON, NJ, April 2011 - BLANCO, German innovator of finely-crafted sinks and faucets, introduces the stunning CULINA semi-professional faucet. BLANCO's award-winning design team stripped the pro faucet down to its essence, leaving a beautifully simple solution to the iconic chef style that eliminates the unruly pull-down hose. A gracefully flexible steel spring spout provides maximum free range. When finished, CULINA's powerful dual spray and coil effortlessly snap back to their original position just by holding the spout near the magnetic feature. The streamlined closed coil is also much easier to clean.
"I haven't seen a new faucet innovation that excites me like this one in maybe ten years," says Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO."CULINA surprises and delights the user! We enhanced the cleaning performance of the pro faucet, made the look more refined and infinitely easier to operate. Just turning it on with the refined handle inlay is like operating the details on a fine luxury car."
BLANCO CULINA is made from the highest quality materials available. Offered in Polished Chrome or Stainless Steel – its solid brass construction anchors the finely tuned inner workings, from long-lasting ceramic disc cartridges to the flexible and convenient pull-down spray coil. CULINA is AB1953 Lead Free and retails from $825 (Polished Chrome) to $895 (Stainless Steel).
