Pot fillers can be mounted at different heights, but the average is 12 to 14 inches above the stove. To find the minimum height for a kitchen, measure the height of the tallest pot from the counter top to the top of the burner and add one inch for clearance.

A pot filler is a faucet installed above a stove range used to fill large pots and kettles. Originally designed for commercial kitchens, they are becoming more common in custom kitchens to eliminate the need to carry water-filled pots to the stove, which can weigh as much as 20 pounds.
