Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Sleek, functions well, easy install
Never had the courage to install a faucet before, but this pre-assembled unit and the good instructions were all I needed to give it a try. I also watched some videos on YouTube to learn how to take out the old faucet-which greatly helped. I had to make a run to the hardware store for some couplings (1/2" to 3/8"), but everything went very quick and no leaks. I like the look and feel of this faucet, and the soap dispenser keeps the sink area uncluttered. It swivels easily between sinks, pulls out and resets in the base with a nice solid feel. Water pressure is great. Makes my sink look better too. BTW- I did not use plumbers putty on the deck plate-guess plumbers don't use it much for this anymore.

We bought and installed this several months ago... Nice quality piece for a fair price. Stainless steel seems to be high quality. I would buy this one again. We'll see if it stands the test of time :)

The good: installation was easy and looks nice.
The bad: the ergonomics of the sprayer. Whoever designed this obviously never tried to pick it up and use it. Because the spray unit is curved, the only way to to grab and pull it is underhand. It is impossible to use this with an overhand grip, as most people would. Huge flaw in my opinion and is going back to Home Depot as a result.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BarrytheCat LOOKS GREAT, WORKS SMOOTHLY, EASY INSTALL
Generally speaking, I could care less about a kitchen faucet as long as it's not leaking and runs water BUT in this case, I'm glad I was coerced into upgrading.
What I liked:
Aesthetics: The parts that sit above the counter look sharp and makes the sink area look neat. Very easy to shine up too.
Operation: The faucet turns on and off very smoothly. Same goes for hot/cold rotation. Spray function is pretty standard (meaning, not underpowered or overpowered). Has a durable feel to it.
Installation (for me, most important part): Installation was a breeze. Honestly, the hardest part of installation was taking out the old faucet, which had parts that were not designed for easy de-installation. While putting in the new (Barton) faucet, I couldn't help but notice the designers thought it through the tail end of the faucet's life- which gives me a nice, warm fuzzy feeling about what is on the inside of the faucet.
What I didn't like: Nothing so far. Still working great (2 months since installed). Will update review if anything goes wrong.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by exterminator Nice faucet, 2nd go around so far...
I purchased the first of this model back in February. It looks great, installation is easy and straight forward, no leaks right off the bat - and an unexpected bonus was that it swivels from side-to-side for a double basin sink very smoothly! Well, it did....and then it stopped and became stiff and rigid to move from side-to-side. I uninstalled and reinstalled, checked out everything that I could, and couldn't figure out what the problem was. I have a busy schedule and a lot of times I would very much rather shoot off an email rather than talk to someone on the phone. American Standard offers email customer service and troubleshooting is one of the options, and their web site says they'll get back to you in 36 hours or less. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, things happen with emails, they get lost in cyber-space, whatever the case may be. I received no response from American Standard and sent off a 2nd request for contact today.
I decided to check with my local Home Depot to see if they would do an exchange for the same model and they did. I brought the new one home, had it installed in no time and now, this product has a second chance with me.
The faucet handle comes out about 2 feet from the base it rests in. It makes filling our coffee maker which sits right next to the sink in the morning nice, and doing the dishes is much nicer with the extended pull out handle. We're on well water and the water pressure seems adequate to me. It seems to be a mix of decent quality metal and some plastic. The hoses are braided and seem to be of good quality. All-in-all I gave the faucet 4 stars because I had to install it more than once and the first one developed the problem it did. But, even good products throw out a lemon now and again, so benefit of the doubt on board; 2nd faucet installed and ready to see how it holds up.
