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.”

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.

For the Mom that (practically) lives in the kitchen: The Pekoe Semi-Professional Kitchen Faucet

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

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.
