A modern take on traditional sinks

Highlighting a contemporary spin on a classic farmhouse design, the new Pekoe apron front kitchen sinks from American Standard offer smart features and timeless beauty that coordinates with modern appliances. Handcrafted from durable, 18-gauge stainless steel — which is naturally stain, heat, and chip-resistant — the new Pekoe kitchen sinks offer a generously-sized single basin to accommodate large pots and pans.

Pekoe sinks feature brand-exclusive SoundSecure+ rubber padding on the bottom and sides of the sink, helping to prevent unwanted noise and vibration. Additionally, the unique StoneLock insulated undercoating further helps to absorb sound and minimize condensation underneath the basin.

Expertly designed 10mm rounded corners simplify cleaning, while channel grooves at the sink base provide improved drainage.

The stainless steel Pekoe apron front kitchen sinks — available in 30-inch and 33-inch sizes — are finished on three sides to provide installation flexibility. The integrated support at the back of the sink enhances strength and durability. A coordinated strainer, installation instructions, cutout template and stainless steel protective bottom grid are included with each sink for convenience.

These apron front models join an already-established collection of Pekoe stainless steel sinks, available in sizes ranging from 17 inches to 23 inches.

List prices range from $950 to $999.

MeasureFill Faucet

The new Beale MeasureFill pull-down kitchen faucet from American Standard is the first on the market to deliver an adjustable set volume of water on demand.

This contemporary styled, high-arch faucet streamlines cooking and baking tasks, while helping to reduce clutter in the kitchen – no measuring cups needed. The faucet delivers an exact volume of water, ranging from a half cup to up to five cups, achieving a precise measurement faster than using a conventional measuring cup. No more filling, checking, pouring out or rechecking needed to get the exact amount of water for a recipe.

For ease of use, a blue LED light illuminates the dial window and volume marks when the measuring function is in use. The selection dial features a stylish, coin edge detail, which helps to improve grip and ensures an accurate setting of the desired water amount.

Designed with the user’s convenience in mind, the Beale MeasureFill faucet features easy touch on/off functionality. A simple touch of the hand or wrist on the dial window is all it takes to operate the faucet. Featuring an automatic shut-off after five minutes for safety, this faucet also offers a temperature memory setting that allows the water to be turned off and back on in any temperature setting.

The faucet offers a choice of two spray patterns — stream and spray — using a water-conserving flow rate of 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm). To complement a variety of kitchen decors, the Beale MeasureFillTM is available in a choice of two popular finishes — polished chrome and stainless steel — to easily coordinate with contemporary-styled kitchen appliances and accessories.

The faucet is powered by replaceable AAA batteries and can optionally be outfitted with an AC adapter (sold separately) to make the faucet a plug-in version. List prices range from $775 to $999.

VorMax Plus toilet cleans itself

Powerful flushing platform from American Standard combines Lysol cleaner to freshen toilet bowl from top to bottom with every flush

Trusted household brands American Standard and Lysol have joined forces to introduce the VorMax Plus, a new self-cleaning toilet that cleans and freshens the toilet bowl with Lysol cleaner during every flush – no extra steps needed.

With the VorMax Plus toilet, American Standard has taken cleaning performance to the next level with the innovative VorMax Plus Fresh Infuser, which is hidden in an easy-to-access compartment behind the seat. The result: a cleaner bowl that helps prevent staining and buildup without any extra effort by the user or an unsightly add-on device in the bowl.

The award-winning VorMax flushing platform has been independently verified to clean the bowl two times better than conventional toilets. Combined with Lysol cleaner – featuring an Ocean Fresh scent – the VorMax Plus toilet delivers effortless cleaning, reducing the elbow grease needed for one of the least favourite household chores.

To further simplify cleaning and maintenance, this toilet’s CleanCurve Rim omits the rim cavity and holes inside the bowl where dirt and buildup can get trapped and hide. In addition, VorMax Plus toilets feature brand-exclusive EverClean, the innovative permanent finish that helps toilets stay cleaner, longer.

The VorMax Plus high efficiency toilet achieves the highest bulk removal score on the Maximum Performance (MaP) test, successfully flushing 1,000 grams (2.2 pounds) of waste with only 1.28 gallons of water per flush. It has earned WaterSense certification for providing high performance while using 20 per cent less water than traditional 1.6 gpf toilets.

VorMax Plus toilets provide ADA-compliant, personalized comfort with a Right Height (16½ inch) elongated bowl configuration. The slow close seat prevents slamming and features a quick release button that permits easy removal of the entire seat for thorough cleaning.

Each VorMax Plus FreshInfuser lasts up to 30 days (360 flushes); two packs are included with the purchase of the toilet, providing up to 60 days of fresh and clean.

The Canadian list price for the VorMax Plus toilet is $398. They are available exclusively in Canada at The Home Depot.
