I had this faucet installed with the handle to the front so that any future owner of my condo (left- or right-handed) could use it easily and so that the handle wouldn't be blocked behind the dishes stacked up in the drying rack in the righthand basin, which was often the case with my old two-handle faucet. What can I say? This smaller size (smaller than the Kohler 596, that is) is still quite substantial-looking but just right in my kitchen, and the faucet works beautifully. I like the fact that the spray head has a ball bearing so that I can turn it this way and that easily and also the fact that it docks magnetically--no drooping. The order from Home Depot was shipped quickly and arrived in good shape.

I read lots of reviews before purchasing Kohler's Simplesse faucet. I wanted a faucet that didn't restrict the flow of water, and this one is supposed to allow 2.2 gallons per minute, if you get it in Chrome, but in Stainless the rating is 1.8 gallons! The spray is wonderful, not too strong but nice and wide. The pull-down head has a "Pause" button, useful for stopping the water while you pull the hose over the top of a kettle to fill. We installed it ourselves, getting the old one out was a big problem, but the new one went in quite easily.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dublin Nice Looking Faucet, But Broken Piece, Bad Packaging Are Drawbacks
Our contractor installed the faucet and noticed that the cartridge was broken, so our brand new faucet sits, installed, leaking away as we wait for Koehler to send us a replacement part. I'm not sure if the part broke during shipping, or if it was already defective. It would really be nice if the product worked right out of the box. The faucet looks great, has great pressure and the pull down spout locks back in place. However, I don't like the lever. It doesn't have a wide enough range of motion, so you have to be precise and controlled when turning it on to get just the right amount of water. Our kids have a bit of a hard time with it. It's either full blast or nothing at all. It takes some getting used to, as you need to actually use some force to be able to control the lever. This is the downside to ordering online--you don't get to actually touch, feel and try out the product. Again, it just takes some getting used to. But at $260, i expect the product to be better.

Looks very nice. Was easy to install. Temperature control is easy but It is sort of difficult to control partial flow due to short travel of the handle. Sprayer produces a bit of mist that wets the counter around it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JM Love this faucet!!
I purchased 2 of these faucets in matte black for each of my 2 kitchen sinks. I love them! I have been using them for about 2 months. They were easy to install. I wasn't sure I would like the blade spray, but I do. It clears a sink in no time. I don't have any issues with water pressure. I love the magnetic hold on the faucet head. It holds the head tightly, and I can't imagine that it will sag. I was replacing an older Kohler design that had a leaking problem that apparently others had a lot of trouble with. I was going to go with a Moen brand faucet, but was hesitant after I read some common themes within many reviews. I couldn't be happier with these faucets. Home Depot was great to order from.

Sadly I can not comment on the water pressure as most if the water pressure is spraying out of the control handle across the room instead of the faucet. Firstly, I am greatly disappointed in this American product. Right out of the box, the hot side line was completely clogged solid. It turned out to be a stuck check valve in the hot line stem. Got that fixed, but the cheap plastic cartridge valve inside the control handle was a different issue. I am a fix it guy, not a send it back guy. After disassembling the plastic valve I found that the little plastic mixer plate inside all of the other plastic parts was broken completely in half. Funny thing too, this faucet had a lot of water inside already!
Reading all the great reviews here I felt good with this order. The dang faucet looks excellent on my Kohler sink too! But I wish I would have read all the reviews on Amazon first. Funny, two folks had the same exact problem with the hot side being completely blocked, and many more have a busted spraying valve shooting water all over the room. So sad. I will not send the dayum thing back. I ordered two new valves (GP1093674) on Amazon. I suggest you keep several of these things around with this faucet.
