IKEA tapruthPull out works perfectly, every bit as good as much more expensive tap from plumbing supply shops . Easy to install too.5
Good tap but two small issue sTraciI love the look and finish of this tap. There are 2 small issues. Firstly, if you have been running full hot water then want to use the pull-out part, the piece you need to grab is too hot to touch - the work around is to pull it out before it gets too hot and then hold the actual hose part. The second issue is that because of its water saving feature, the nozzle is quite small to increase water pressure. This in turn causes the water to splatter upwards when it hits whatever is under it. Takes a bit of getting used to.4
Looks great in my newJacquelineLooks great in my new kitchen. Love the mixer tap.5
Kitchen tapAngelaThis tap swivels in a complete circle making it able to use water in other areas than the sink5
Kitchen tap replacementPaulWe were pleased that Ikea had a tap to replace the one in our kitchen, and Almaren is very similar to the original one. And it was much cheaper than another brand our plumber was going to get for us from another source.4
Kitchen tapSherinaWe installed this in the kitchen, super easy to install, I did it with my brother. Needed a wrench though.5
Tap with extendable hose insideDeborah H.I think it was $20Au more for this tap with the hose feature. It’s in the laundry. I love it, I use this extendable hose often. It’s useful and hasn’t failed yet.5
I have bought a similarDIANEI have bought a similar style tap a few years ago and preferred the shape but it is no longer available that was why I bought this one.3
Really good quality Pulls outEsraReally good quality Pulls out easily Water pressure is great Doesn't get water marks easily5
low pressureSeb G.We have just installed this tap the pressure is so low that we have to fill up the kettle in the laundry. We will certainly save money. Also one of the parts is faulty so the tap leaks under the sink.2
Stylish!HitomiI love the design. And it's easy to clean in the sink.5
Kitchen tapCorinaExactly what I was after at a good price5
Very happy with the tap,David/BethVery happy with the tap, it is better than I expected. I love the slim design and the pull out end is working well. I was a little worried the end piece might not stay in place after a few uses but it does. I really can't comment on installation as my husband did that but it was certainly easy for me ;)5

Saving water at every step

Every time you rinse salad, fill a kettle or wash dishes, you're helping with something essential—saving water. How? Thanks to the small aerator in every IKEA kitchen mixer tap that reduces water flow while maintaining pressure. We didn't invent aerators, but think they are an important example of how we can work together to save water for everyone's benefit.

Four years ago, we started a project to improve our taps and knew we needed more expertise. That's when we hired Antony Smith, an engineer from England who has worked with taps for more than a decade. Now he lives in Sweden and is part of a small team that develops taps and showers for IKEA. Like every new employee, Antony read founder Ingvar Kamprad's Testament of a Furniture Dealer. In it, Ingvar writes 'wasting resources is a mortal sin at IKEA.' This helped Antony understand how much we care about water and how his job is just one step in our larger approach to sustainability.

A company-wide dedication

"When I got to IKEA, I realised we practise what we preach about sustainability," Antony says. "It's a refreshing experience, but it makes our job really difficult because we genuinely have to deliver on sustainability with each product." So why is conserving water so important? Because water is one of our planet's most precious resources. Earth may be covered in a lot of water, but very little of it is drinkable and even less is accessible. No organism can survive without it, and no new water is created. It's constantly recycled, but our freshwater supply is overused; not evenly distributed; and impacted by pollution, contamination and climate change.

A water-conscious commitment

IKEA values the quality and quantity of water so much that we are committed to being water positive by 2020. One aspect is finding simple ways for people to conserve water. Aerators are a step we took long before our water commitment, but Antony and his team are working hard on new water saving taps using sensors or spray technology. Behind the scenes, there's more to our commitment than what we develop for kitchens. Our initiative also includes exploring ways to improve water efficiency across the whole product process, whether it’s at our suppliers, distribution centres or stores. It can mean providing factory workers and their families with fresh drinking water, ensuring all factory water is cleaned before release, reducing water usage in textile production or using rainwater to flush toilets in stores. "We make things hard on ourselves for good reasons, Antony says."

An every-bit-counts belief

See why the aerator in your kitchen mixer tap is a small part of our bigger effort to conserve water? "Some people who live where you can just turn on your tap and get water may not really think about saving water; it's taken for granted," Antony says. But he and his team think about water at every step. It's part of creating a positive impact on people and the planet. We think every water-saving action adds up and thank you for helping with your kitchen mixer tap!

Material

What is brass?

Brass is a mixture of copper and zinc and the amounts vary depending on the desired properties. Copper is usually the main material and the more zinc you add results in the brass being harder and stronger, but also results in it being more difficult to shape and less resistant to rust. Brass can be recycled as brass but never into its original metals. At IKEA we use brass for things like knobs, handles, frames and taps.
