About this Article

Q. I recently read your column about a homeowner asking about a small faucet for a prep sink that would use cold water only. As a food professional, I'd advise that food-prep sinks should always include hot water as well, for general cleanup and for washing hands. I believe hands and the sink need to be washed every time you handle raw food products.
