Crosswater Cucina Tropic Side Lever Mono Kitchen Mixer - Brushed Stainless Steel


Crosswater may have only been around since 1998, but in that short time, they have built a reputation as being leaders in brassware design and innovation. Their Cucina range of kitchen taps is full of both modern and traditional kitchen mixers and bib taps. No matter what the design is, they are all manufactured to the same incredibly high standards, and all come with a 15 year guarantee from Crosswater.

The Crosswater Cucina Tropic side lever mono kitchen mixer is a lovely, elegant, modern tap, and with a brushed stainless steel finish, it would grace any contemporary kitchen. Stainless steel taps are still a rarity in UK kitchens with most favouring a more traditional chrome finish, but here at Tap Warehouse we're big fans of them. Not only does the Cucina Tropic look fantastic with its brushed stainless steel effect finish, but it also means that those annoying fingerprint and water marks don't show up to anywhere near the same extent that they do on chrome kitchen taps.

The Cucina Tropic mono kitchen mixer has a handy swivel spout which makes it ideal for 1.5 bowl and 2 bowl sinks, and the large, easy to use single lever control makes turning the tap on and off a breeze, even with a wet hand. The Cucina Tropic requires a minimum water pressure of 0.5 bar to operate, and we recommend a maximum water pressure of no more than 5.0 bar for ideal operation.

• Brushed stainless steel finish

Minimum Water Pressure

Your water pressure depends on your home's water system. It’s important to consider water pressure when buying a new tap or shower. Buying a product with a minimum water pressure that’s too high for your home will result in poor performance.

- With a combi boiler you can usually expect between 1 and 2 bar

- With a gravity system (cold water tank in attic) you may have as little as 0.1 or 0.2 bar upstairs, and perhaps 0.5 bar downstairs

- With a high pressure unvented system (hot water cylinder, no cold water tank) you will generally have between 1 and 3 bar

You can install an item with a low minimum pressure rating on a high pressure system, but avoid installing an item with a high minimum rating on a low pressure system! Read our guide to water pressure to learn more.

Taps use either a ceramic disc cartridge or a rubber compression washer to control flow. Rubber washers will naturally wear down with use, and the tap handle will require more and more rotations to turn on or off. On the plus side, it's very easy to replace a rubber washer and they're available everywhere. 

Ceramic disc cartridges need only a 90-degree rotation to fully open or close, and the 2 ceramic plates are incredibly hard-wearing and resilient. They're more expensive to make, but they allow for a huge range of designs, easy operation and simple maintenance if needed.

Whilst it is rare for a ceramic cartridge to need replacing, you may very occasionally need to remove and rinse the cartridge if grit or debris within the water system is preventing the 2 plates from closing properly. Much like replacing a rubber washer, this is a quick and easy job, and will ensure many years of use.
