For the housewife of yesteryear, the kitchen was purely functional. The room was her well organised workspace. Despite the invention of the dishwasher, the washing up was still largely done by hand because the cutlery and crockery was not dishwasher safe. The sink was about washing up and cooking was about making meals that filled you up.
Today we are seeing a departure from the idea of the kitchen as little more than a workspace and a move towards a new, open-plan concept of kitchen architecture: the kitchen as the hub of the home, a place for living and for hanging out. With the washing up now taken care of by highly efficient dishwashers, today's kitchen sink offers smart solutions to transform itself into a functional extension of the worktop. The entire wet zone supports the cook by providing a perfect place to prepare a varied range of fresh produce, with food prep naturally making up the bulk of the cooking process.
Boasting 1½ bowls, an integrated work surface and a range of functional accessories, the Prepstation bundles many of the steps involved in prepping fresh meals right there in the wet zone. Individually usable accessories turn the sink into a full-service provider: customised Gastronorm accessories for steam cookers and a wooden or plastic chopping board that fits right on top of the draining board complement the functional food prep space.
With the Conos Pro SCHOCK offers the perfect addition to the new dimension of the kitchen sink. The extra pull-out sidespray enables the tap to reach every last corner of the Prepstation and supports the process of prepping fresh produce every step of the way. The large, stainless steel mixer tap with its two spouts extends the tap's range of action across the entire sink area and enables efficient and ergonomic food prep. The whole arrangement lends an air of professionalism to the cooking and the high spout gives the design a timeless elegance. The stainless steel finish offers great functional benefits too, being naturally hard-wearing, corrosion-resistant and extremely durable.
