Retro Faucet Rocks My Socks | Manolo for the Home

Join the Space Age

I <3 Mid Mod Pam of Retro Renovation, and not just because I learn something new (like the definition of ‘hootie ring‘) every time I visit her blog. If you’re into the retro decor, the vintage decor, or the mod decor, I definitely recommend you check her out. Anyway… it turns out that she’s selling the greatest retro kitchen faucet ever, i.e., the Dishmaster, through her site.

I’m lucky in that I already have a husband who does most of the dishes because he knows how much I absolutely cannot stand doing dishes and we have no space for a dishwasher. He even wears a repro apron I sewed using a vintage pattern from the 1940s. Hot stuff, right? And yet I know that he’d think our sink was so much cooler if we were living the Dishmaster lifestyle.

What is Dishmaster Living? Slow down. Cook up a storm. Make a happy mess in your kitchen – then have some more fun cleaning up. Yes – the Dishmaster’s circa-1948 faucet makes washing the dishes fun via the “Push Button Dishwashing” action of the special aerator brush wand – which dispenses soapy sudsy water and rinses clean, too. Feel good about use of precious resources as well: The Dishmaster conserves water, energy and detergent. And, it’s Made in America, by a small company right in Indiana.

Seriously… how cool is this faucet?

    I think the faucet is clunky but I love the brush!

    mkb: I did, too, until someone familiar with these faucets told me that all sorts of gruss stuff ends up getting stuck in the bristles. Ick!
