A Perfect Fit[ting]

I got up close and personal with the Culina faucet last week at LivingKitchen, the new, über-trade show for the kitchen industry. It impresses on two fronts. One, the closed coil of the hose is a welcome and refined change from the usual loosely-wound style; not only has the latter become a cliché in modern kitchens, but its open wire cage is a grime grabber par excellence. Two, there's no awkward fiddling around when trying to dock the head of the sprayer back into place, because a magnetic catch eliminates that tiresome struggle. blancoamerica.com
