English translation:I think its the old-fashioned tap design
Explanation:
I think it's referring to the old-fashioned bathroom taps which have little porcelain tops with "Hot" and "Cold" printed on each one. I'll try and find a picture for you!

so maybe translate it as \"in a traditional/old-fashioned \"hot\" and \"cold\" design\"?

agree  BrigitteHilgner: And I personally prefer them to the mixer tap - because it is easier to get the temperature I really want. (Okay - you may call me old-fashioned).
