A semiprofessional faucet combines performance and style for the serious home chef.

Q: I’m a pretty serious home chef and would like to upgrade my current kitchen faucet. I’m looking for a heavy-duty work faucet, but I don’t want a commercial-looking faucet in my nice kitchen. Can you suggest the type of kitchen faucet I should search for?

A: I recommend that you check out a semiprofessional kitchen faucet. They are great for serious home chefs since they combine performance and style.

Most semi-professional faucets have arched pull-down spray heads, which are great for a multitude of food prep and cleaning tasks. These spring-loaded heads may also feature different spray settings that you can use for things like washing fruits/veggies, filling pots and power-cleaning pans.

Other options include single-handle operation and magnetic docking to securely lock the spray head in place when not in the pull-down mode.
