Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldTechy quailty dual-swivel aerator; works great, looks nice.
This is very good product and a nice addition to your kitchen faucet. Adds flexibility to direct your faucet spray to all corners of the sinks. After 13yrs, this is our 2nd one; which we replaced due to installation of new-faucet which required "male" aerator-connection (lost original adaptor?)
for the adventurous handyman:
1) to Increase-Flow : drill-out (7/32") the inner-restrictor inside the tube between the ball-swivels.
2) for Improved Sealing, smoother-swiveling, better-durability
...(gently) slide-back the connector-sleeves from the ball-swivels;
... apply petroleum-jelly to help seal, lubricate & protect the ball & O-rings.

The black aerator looks classier than the white one, IMHO. Since it's flow-restricted, it might cause a "hammer effect" when installed, depending on your water pressure. It did for me. To remedy, take the unit apart, noting the orientation & order of the washers for later re-assembly. There are 3 flow holes. I drilled each of them to a diameter of 5/64". The hammering was diminished, but not eliminated. I then drilled one of the holes to 7/64". Bingo. No hammering. I found that drilling was easier from the aerator end, rather than the inflow end (i.e., backwards relative to water flow). If you need 7/64" hole(s), drill the outside hole(s) first (rather than the center one). It looks to me that if two adjacent holes are drilled to 7/64" they might intersect each other, weakening the aerator. The aerator is only about 1/2" thick at this point. Drill only as many holes as you need to eliminate the hammering.
Additionally, if you want to lubricate the "O" rings, use silicon grease (Home Depot has it) rather than vaseline. Vaseline will cause "O" rings to decompose.
The product seems to be well-made. It's plastic, but has a solid feel to it. If it leaks for you, make sure you have removed the the previous aerator's washers/spacers from the faucet. I have had no problem with leaks or product failure when water pressure was applied.

This product literally exploded off the end of the faucet handle in less than two days. It is all plastic and not made to last. The top never stopped leaking before it split apart. I would give this one half of one star, not one star.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jenn No matter how much I tighten it, it still leaks out the sides.
I bought this for my kitchen faucet and am quite disappointed. No matter how much I try to tighten it (and I worry about breaking it since it's just plastic) water still sprays out the sides where it's screwed in. I even tried adding some teflon. I'l be returning this to try something different.
