Maybe someone can explain pot fillers to me.

What I always hear is "you don't have to carry a big pot of water across the kitchen". Which I suppose is true, until you have to empty it. And then it's likely hot or boiling water (I'm thinking draining pasta) and that's even more dangerous.

Also, it seems risky to have a potentially leaky faucet right over your cooktop or range, which I intend to be the most valuable appliance when I renovate my kitchen.

So, those of you that have pot fillers, do you feel they're really worth it?
