Everything is so much easier – and gentler on the body

In the kitchen, things tend to get rather heated: we are often busy rinsing food, fetching ingredients from the cupboards, filling pots, operating appliances, and washing our hands. So it’s only logical that minimal legwork tops the wish list when planning. This enables our work to run smoothly, and saves time and effort. Do you love having kitchen tools and ingredients ready to hand too? This is down to having well-organised cabinets and pull-outs. Cleverly designed drawers and pull-outs enable you to easily access even low base units, and make optimum use of the space in the kitchen.  

Individual requirements play a key role in kitchen planning

First and foremost, an ergonomic kitchen is tailored to your body size. Kitchen cabinets, oven and microwave are easy to fill and empty at eye level. You should also design the worktop to make it easy on the back. Studies suggest that this should be situated approximately 10 cm below the individual elbow height. So take measurements before consulting the dealer! Please also bear in mind: for a clear, convenient view of pots and pans, the hob should be situated somewhat lower than your worktop. Here, ergonomics means: ideally with head clearance and no steaming up of glasses. Appropriate extractor fan technology makes this possible. 
Particularly important in this regard is the choice of a suitable kitchen tap. This should accommodate your usual practices at the sink. 

When it comes to ergonomics, ease of use is what counts

In an optimally furnished kitchen, you can manage and control everything easily and intuitively. This is especially useful when you're in a hurry or have your hands full. Water control at the touch of a button and easy-to-access control units make ergonomic sense and mean extra convenience when tackling everyday kitchen chores.

Ergonomics in the kitchen.
At the sink, good ergonomic design supports natural movement sequences. This also means using two hands to do chores, in a user-friendly and comfortable position.

Ergonomic design is a feel-good recipe – in the kitchen too

With a large selection of hansgrohe kitchen taps and sinks, ergonomic design in the kitchen can be optimised in elegant style. These functional products are extremely user-friendly and add aesthetic touches to the very heart of the kitchen. For example, the Metris Select pull-out kitchen mixer is equipped with a Select button on the top of the spout. Making it easy to switch off the water, pull-out the spout and switch the water back on when the spout is over the pot you would like to fill - all with the touch of a button. You can use the back of your hand or elbow to open the water when your hands are full or dirty. Convenience by the touch of a button.
The flat-shaped handle on hansgrohe kitchen taps is ergonomically designed and easy to grip, even with wet hands, and it allows the temperature and spray strength to be preset.
