Tom Volpe December 14, 2022

Whether you're a homeowner who's been living in your house for years or you're just starting, it's probably time to upgrade your kitchen with a pull-out tap. These taps are perfect for making your life easier in the kitchen. Not only do they make filling up pots and pans much simpler, but they also free up space on your countertops. If you're looking for a tap that is both stylish and functional, a pull-out tap is the perfect option for you.

What is a flex tap?

A flex tap, also known as a tap with a pull-out spout, is an innovative way to upgrade your kitchen sink. Unlike traditional taps which are stationary and limited in range, flex taps use a nozzle that can be pulled out from the base and then moved freely around the kitchen area. This makes it much easier to access water from multiple angles and elevations rather than having to remain stationary at one location.

Not only does this enhance efficiency but it also opens up more possibilities for tasks such as filling pots or washing vegetables. Additionally flex taps usually come with modern benefits like a customised spray setting, temperature control, motion sensor opening and more. Making them an incredibly useful and versatile tool in any modern kitchen!

Benefits of a flex tap

Flex Taps Make Cooking Easier

One of the primary benefits of flex taps is that they make cooking easier. Traditional kitchen faucets require two hands to operate effectively; one hand to turn on the water and one hand to hold the pot or pan underneath the stream of water. With a flex tap, however, you can turn on the water and direct the stream with just one hand, leaving your other hand free to attend to other tasks. This is especially beneficial when you are cooking something that requires multiple steps or when you are cooking for a large group of people.

Flex Taps Make Cleaning Easier

In addition to making cooking easier, flex taps also make cleaning easier. Traditional kitchen faucets have a single spray setting that disperses water in one direction only. This can make it challenging to rinse larger pots and pans thoroughly. Flex taps, on the other hand, often have multiple spray settings that allow you to direct the stream of water in different directions. This makes it much easier to rinse away all traces of food and grease from even the largest pots and pans.

Flex Taps Offer a Premium Look

Finally, flex taps offer a premium look that traditional kitchen faucets simply cannot match. This is due in part to the fact that flex taps are often made from higher-quality materials than traditional kitchen faucets. In addition, flex taps often have a sleek, modern design that can give your kitchen an instant upgrade. If you are looking for a way to add a touch of luxury to your kitchen without spending a fortune, installing a flex tap is an excellent option.

Is a boiling water tap with a pull-out spout safe?

Yes, a boiling water tap with a pull-out spout can provide a safe delivery of hot water, with many other advantages over traditional methods like kettles, microwaves and stove-top teapots. To start, the boiling water function can't be accessed through the flex spout, limiting the chance of accidental scalding.

With additional safety measures in place such as child locks and insulated spouts that remain cool to the touch (even when filled with boiling water), boiling water taps with pull-out fixtures can be a safe and convenient way to access piping hot water at home.

Can your flex taps dispense regular hot and cold water?

Absolutely yes! Our modern flex taps allow users to have access to hot, cold and boiling water with a single tap, making the experience much more convenient. Rather than having separate single-temp taps, flex taps provide an all-in-one solution that can dispense water at whatever temperature is required.

This makes them especially useful for tasks like washing dishes or filling a pot for cooking when both temperatures are needed quickly. Flex taps function via dual spouts and ports that disperse water from two different tubes - one for hot water and one for cold water - giving you complete control over the temperature of your desired drink or dish.

How much does a boiling tap with a pull-out spout cost?

A boiling tap with a pull-out spout is a coveted appliance for the modern kitchen, but compared to other boiling taps on the market, they tend to be at the higher end of the price scale. These costlier models are usually more energy-efficient and come with a slew of features like adjustable water temperature and child-proofing settings. Depending on the brand and specific model, you could pay as little as £749 or up to thousands of Pounds. It is important to compare all of the options before deciding, checking what your selected model comes with, for example, a boiler tank and/or filter.


So, if you're in the market for a new kitchen faucet, we highly recommend upgrading to a pull-out tap. Not only will it make your life easier (especially when it comes time to clean), but it'll also add some style and functionality to your space. Plus, with so many different designs and finishes to choose from, there's sure to be one that perfectly matches your aesthetic.
