Remember that bag of potpourri you got for your Mom that one Mother’s Day? Or what about that colossal “my-size” teddy bear? This year, get your Mom something she’ll actually use…
This Mother’s Day, Professor Toilet and his team are celebrating all the wonderful Moms with a giveaway starting now and leading up to No Dirty Dishes Day on May 18th! All you have to do is tell us, in the comments section below, what your Mom’s time is better spent doing instead of washing dishes (i.e. golfing, painting, scuba diving?).
On May 20th, we will choose our favorite comment to win a Quince 1-Handle Pull-Down Spray Kitchen Faucet. This casually styled kitchen faucet makes clean-up a breeze with its two spray functions, memory position handle to set water at your preferred temperature and a high arc swivel spout. Now all that’s missing is a volunteer to make “No Dirty Dishes” a reality…

Back in May, Professor Toilet and his team sought out to make one deserving Mom very happy by supplying her with a brand new culinary tool – the American Standard Quince Semi-Professional Kitchen Faucet. The response was tremendous; over 150 of you told us why you think your mom deserved the new addition! (Mom would be proud) After reading all of your amazing responses, we selected Jennifer Huber, daughter extraordinaire and blogger at Solo Travel Girl, as our winner. She wrote of her mom, “she’s one of the best cooks I know and it’s just not me saying that – over the decades she’s dazzled friends and family by single-handily preparing delicious feasts for 100-some people for family reunions, graduations and “just because” summer gatherings. This would definitely make her feel like the pro she really is. Plus, I think she’d enjoy spraying her adult-children with it to keep us in line.”
We’re flattered that Jennifer’s blog recently gave us a shout out, touting “thanks to American Standard, I’m the best daughter in the world!” Jennifer’s mom (pictured above) playfully demonstrated her Quince spraying skills as a fair warning to the Huber children – watch out! With the Quince Semi-Professional Kitchen Faucet, Jennifer’s mom can now dazzle guests better than ever and entertain like a Pro! Read more about the story at Solo Travel Girl.
Making someone the best daughter in the world? It’s all in a day’s work for Professor Toilet.

Edit: Congratulations to Gerald McCarty whose hilarious poem, “An Ode to Dad”, made us laugh. Gerald’s father must’ve had a huge part in instilling a sense of humor to his children! Read the winning comment below:
An Ode to Dad.
My Dad is an endearing guy, but I fear his water bill is way too high.
His toilet flushes way too much and the old porcelain is unpleasant to the eye.
A new American Standard toilet would be such a great big rush,
And the lower water bills would be a bonus reminded with every flush.
My dear father just turned eighty eight
and a new toilet for him would really be great.
If he wins I could not be prouder
but for his merits I’ll just have to scream louder.
Thank you to everyone who entered our “Ultimate Man Cave” Giveaway! Stay tuned with us as we introduce new givaways and more all summer long!
At the American Standard research and design center, we’re constantly keeping an eye on emerging trends in the kitchen and bath world in order to design products that fit the end user’s needs flawlessly. In the April issue of Professional Remodeler, Gray Uhl, American Standard’s Director of Design, spoke about the latest trends in bath remodeling. Among his observations was the increase in a need for products that work in existing spaces in response to the people staying in their homes longer and creating multi-generational living spaces.
This got our gears turning; what are some other trends that are emerging in bathroom interiors? We asked Gray to clue us in on some of the hottest trends of 2012:
Now it’s your turn! Watch the video below to see how you can win an American Standard Outreach Faucet (our response to the need for a more versatile bathroom faucet) and maybe even see your product idea come to life!
For the chance to win the American Standard Outreach Faucet, leave a comment to this post with a product idea that isn’t available today that you’d love to own or with a style that you’d like to see us develop. Professor Toilet and his team will choose their favorite entry on Monday June 25, 2012 as the winner, so hurry and enter before Sunday June 24, 5PM ET.
EDIT: Congratulations to Kay Thrasher who thought of a clever way to add more counter space with minimal effort. She says, “I have a very small bathroom with limited space. I’d love a bathroom sink that had a cover or partial cover so I could have more counter space when not using the sink and remove it for full access when needed.” Congratulations Kay!
Moms are heroes on a daily basis – they soothe bumps and bruises, provide support through thick and thin and teach us the most important lessons in life. This Mother’s Day, the Professor Toilet blog is celebrating with a very special giveaway for the fabulous Mom in your life.
Whether she’s a culinary pro or a kitchen novice, we think any mom would love the addition of a brand new faucet to the kitchen. American Standard kitchen faucets give a worry-free lifetime of performance and beauty. Ceramic disc valves keep faucets drip-free and running smoothly. A lifetime finish that resists tarnishing and scratches mean the faucet will continue to look great for years of wear. All American Standard faucets are worry-free, drip-free and built to last – the perfect trifecta to make any mom smile!

For the Mom that (practically) lives in the kitchen: The Pekoe Semi-Professional Kitchen Faucet
Does your mom host her own imaginary Food Network show straight out of her kitchen? The Pekoe Semi-Professional Kitchen Faucet was designed with the “Michelin Star” home chef in mind with its sleek and modern silhouette. The long pull-down spray makes rinsing vegetables and washing large pots a cinch which, of course, means more time to master that Beurre manié.
For the Home Head Chef: The Quince Semi-Professional Faucet
The Quince Semi-Professional Kitchen Faucet keeps pace with the mom that slices and dices like a pro; the smooth lever handle and toggle spray making rinsing and washing a breeze while the memory positioning feature keeps the user from having to adjust the temperature each use.
For the casual cook: The Quince High Arc Faucet with Pull-Out Spray
For the mom that likes things simple and sweet, the Quince delivers with a casual look that’s inspired by nature. Don’t let the minimalistic appearance deceive you though: this kitchen faucet is packed with features that bring convenience to the home cook including a pull out spout with two spray functions.
Demands for global change this Earth Day, taking place this year on Sunday April 22nd, starts with small actions that create a bigger picture of worldwide conservation. For example, did you know that a leaky toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day? Or that an average 8 minute shower can use up to 24 gallons of water? Detecting and fixing leaks and replacing older faucets with newer models that are Water Efficient or Watersense® Certified can save you hundreds of dollars a year! That’s money we think can be better spent elsewhere (think down payment on a new, fuel-efficient car).
Together, we can make a world of difference. See what Water Saving Rebates you qualify for and calculate your water savings with our interactive water savings calculator to estimate how much green you can save by going green.
