Franke Omni Water Tap

Franke Omni Water Tap

Water at its most wonderful:

the Franke Omni Water Tap is the world’s first mechanical 4-in-1 kitchen mixer tap, offering filtered boiling and filtered cold water, as well as the usual mains hot and cold. It’s easy to fit in new or existing kitchens, safe to use and ultra-reliable with a 3-year warranty. Omni works beautifully with existing plumbing to revolutionise the way you use your kitchen.

Pure and simple:

A complete system comprising of tap, boiler and under-sink filter, Omni is elegantly designed and easy to use. Normal hot and cold water is dispensed through a conventional mixer lever, while the opposite lever is pushed forward for filtered cold water and back for boiling. An innovative ‘tube within a tube’ design ensures that your filtered water remains fresh and safe to drink at all times, as it is kept separate from normal mains water. The clever design also keeps the outside parts cool, even when dispensing boiling water.

Safety assured:

Safety is a key priority and Omni is safer than a traditional kettle in so many ways; there are no cords which can be pulled to avoid any nasty accidents like on a kettle. The childproof push-to-activate lever helps to keep boiling water away from little hands. The lever is also spring loaded to switch off instantly if any splashes occur. A child safety clip is provided for total protection from curious little hands or visitors to your home.

Peter Sidwell commented, “Kitchens are more than just places to cook; they are the heart of every home. Having enjoyed cooking as a professional chef for over 20 years, I spend a lot of my time in a kitchen. A well planned kitchen inspires me and helps me create new dishes for my books and restaurant; it’s the same at home and a beautiful kitchen makes an inviting space for family and friends to gather and socialise.

I am really pleased to be associated with Gallery kitchens, as they only use the finest products made in the UK, and have a focus on offering the very best in design for consumers. I chose New York White to go in my brand new cooking school in my home county of Cumbria, but it was a hard decision to make as there were so many styles and ranges.

I’m looking forward to a long and productive relationship with Gallery.”
