The new kitchen taps range from Hansgrohe, the Metris M71 and Talis M51, can be operated with just one hand thanks to the inclusion of touch technology.

They offer two spray modes: laminar flow, which is a consistent stream of water that has a flow rate of eight litres per minute, or shower spray, which gives a softer spray with a 3.5 litres per minute flow rate.

The tap also includes the company’s QuickClean feature, which is said to help prevent the build-up of lime scale in the aerator.
