Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TK Great product and excellent customer service!
I recently installed this faucet and it was very easy to install and looks great in our newly remodeled bathroom. Because of an oversight on my part I contacted Kohler customer service. Their response was immediate and excellent. I would recommend this or any other Kohler product because of this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Louamo GOOD FAUCET, EASY TO INSTALL
This Kohler faucet looks good and is easy to install. Love how the under sink installation uses a metal piece that easily threads in place and then two screws are used to tighten it so as to hold the handle units in place! The supply lines were easy to install and even though, as others have commented, the drain piece is plastic, I had no problem installing it. Just about every bathroom faucet I have ever purchased has a plastic drain (the part you see in the sink is metal and matches the faucet). The only problem I have noticed is that the cold handle seems a little loose. I have a Kohler kitchen faucet that is six years old and it looks brand new and has not required any repairs yet. I expect similar service from this faucet.
The faucet spout is a two piece design but the seam is barely noticeable. I took off a star for this and the fact that the finish does show water spots fairly easily. The finish should be more of a brushed surface to reduce noticeable water spots. I do not have a problem with the water pressure and it is actually a little stronger than my previous faucet. The base of the spout has a rubber washer that must be installed prior to installation which seals it against the counter and prevents any scratches.
Overall this is a good quality faucet with a few drawbacks that Kohler should have addressed (such as the water spotting).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Annie Beautiful and functional faucet!
I had this installed when updating a bathroom for my elderly mother. She loves it! Not only is it beautiful, but the update to a faucet with separate hot and cold (rather than one) knobs makes the bathroom more functional for her needs. I gave ease of installation an excellent, but had this installed professionally along with her new sink, so I really can't truly say whether it would be easy to install for a DIYer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stevieland Works excellently and looks beautiful!
All Kohler products are excellently made and MISTOS is beautful and fills our needs and design/look. Produces a nice water stream. Relatively easy to install. We just added two sets to our master bath after previously installing a set in our guest bath and observing how it worked.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FridleyHomeOwner Great sleek modern look!
Fantastic fixture- bought for a bathroom remodel to pair with a Kohler sink. Also purchased the Mistos shower faucets. Everyone comments on how good they look. They turn on and off with ease and are very sensitive- allowing you to create the smallest of water streams (this is important for my cat to play with). Had a plumber install sink and fixtures and it took about 30 mins to do it all. He commented on how easy it was to install. I'd highly recommend. Also, would recommend getting this set with the handles separate rather than all together. Even though I thought the sink would be small and it might look strange, it is much better looking. It also makes them easier to clean when they are separate. Also, no issues with any water spotting on fixtures.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ArmyVeteranMike Kohler faucet, better than a Moen, but cant touch a DELTA
Two piece steel construction of faucet is cheap. The faucet is fashionable. I went high end Delta with all shower fixtures and they impress. the Kohler is eye candy but the valves are loose and faucet is light weight.
Price is right, if I was not selling the house I would have bought a Delta.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rimshot29ers Almost perfect
Only gripe: Bought two of these at the same time from the same place. Found out one model was a "wholesale version" and another a "retail version." Kohler responded to my email (very quickly). They mailed me the correct pieces and informed me of the wholesale vs. retail differences.
Check out the photos to see the difference.
Almost 5 stars but not quite.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LLL This faucet has serious issues! Scratched my brand new marble countertops and water smells!
While I chose this faucet due to Kohler's reputation as a maker of quality plumbing fixtures, I am extremely disappointed with this faucet. Because of it's design and fabrication, the spout has two pieces of metal, and in this particular fixture, the top piece was slightly longer than the under piece which caused it to scratch the brand new marble when it was being installed due to the spout twisting while being tightened. You would expect a faucet to be flush/flat on the bottom, not have a jagged edge that would cause damage to the countertop. At the minimum, a proper gasket might protect the countertop and create a seal however the gasket that goes into the underside of the spout does not create a barrier between the metal of the spout and the countertop. Furthermore, the instructions nowhere mention that this is a two person job to ensure that while the spout is being tightened from the bottom someone hold it on the top to ensure it does not turn in the slightest (a job that would be difficult even with two people). Kohler is telling me that this is installation error but I'm perplexed why a faucet would be designed/get through quality control without a flush spout!
Otherwise disappointing, the faucet has a smell of rust/metal whenever I use the cold water and the faucet is not smudge/spot resistant so there are always water stains on it. Unfortunately, I already paid my handyman to put it in so replacing it with something, if possible to find, that would cover the ugly scratches in my brand new marble countertop, will cost me even more money. Otherwise, I have to loosen it to get the marble scratch "fixed" and then hope when re-tightening it doesn't just scratch again, and then still deal with smelly water!
