Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jayhawkfan Great Look and Finish
Installed this faucet in the kitchen and it looks and functions perfectly. It was easy to install about 30 minutes total to remove and install the new faucet. The product is packaged very good and everything for the install in included but the hot and cold water supplies line. This did give me a change to try ,homedepot's twist, click, seal supply lines which were easy to use in tight places without a wench, just hand tighten. The faucet works and the satin finish looks great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mastadruma Kraus Means Quality! Do more with your sink!
I was able to install this new faucet in my kitchen sink without any prior skills or plumbing training. Though I am skilled in this type of installation, I want to stress how easy the install was. If you can take your old faucet off, you can install this one with ease. The one recommendation I want to make is that you take your time and clean your sink as best as you can. You want this faucet to be flush with the sink so that future splashes don't creep under your base plate and cause drips and funk buildup. Use a good quality silicone to seal the base plate to the sink. Once you dry fit all the parts, proceed to follow the installation instructions to the letter. There should not be any extra parts when done. FINGER TIGHTEN and don't over turn anything. You don't want to crack your fittings. Lastly, turn on the water slowly so that you can check for leaks. I feel that Kraus made a quality faucet and I would recommend this model if you need a sprayer and angled faucet in one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roger Nice looking easy to use faucet
Great looking well made faucet. It came with everything except the supply lines. Installation is easy as long as you do not attach everything before finalizing it. Once the connections are made and if the hole in your sink is small like mine then you are kinda stuck and installation can become challenging, except for that installation is fairly straight forward. The pressure is great and it is very easy to operate single-handedly. The button on the sprayer head easily switches between stream and spray and is easy to operate. A good buy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tnahpele Nice looking faucet but the instructions could be better.
This faucet is nicely finished and works well, except that the sprayer won't retract the last 1/4" under it's own power - you have to push it back into the spout. The handle works smoothly and is easy to adjust. The water flow is powerful and can be switched between stream and spray.
I had some issues with the instructions. The diagrams are small and confusing. The installation steps are incomplete - for example the exact parts and order of the mounting hardware aren't listed anywhere except in the replacement parts diagram on the last page. The faucet can be mounted without the cover plate but that isn't mentioned in the instructions. I asked customer support about mounting without the cover plate and got a reply within an hour, so customer service is exemplary.
Another installation issue is that the copper stubs that the supply lines connect to are short and have a label saying you have to hold back on the stubs while tightening the supply lines to prevent twisting of the stubs. This means you need to use two wrenches under the sink, one horizontally just below the faucet on the stubs. I was able to install the faucet with the sink removed, but if the sink couldn't be removed this would be a difficult maneuver.
The limited lifetime warranty contains the clause "All KRAUS products must be installed by a licensed professional plumber or contractor to avoid any improper use or installation." I'm not sure what this implies, but it seems to discourage having done it myself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerryT Beautiful, Functional and Easy to Install
The faucet came well packed. There were no items damaged or missing. Installation was easy and straight forward. The hardest part was getting into a contortionist position in the compact cabinet under the sink. Luckily the connections were easy and I didn't have to stay in that position for very long. The only tools needed for the installation are a philip's head screwdriver and an adjustable wrench.
This is a beautiful faucet that operates smoothly and easily. The sprayer head has a very nice flow and spray pattern that easily switches between stream and spray then back again.
The bottom line:
This is a beautiful faucet that is easy to install and operates well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by soldbydon Excellent Quality - Well-Engineered
If other faucet manufacturers built their faucets with the durability the way Kraus built this one there wouldn't be many replacement faucets sold! This is one heavy-duty unit; ceramic valving, all-brass body (no external plastic), and nicely packaged with excellent instructions. Just a beautifully engineered faucet - you'll love it. My only complaint - it didn't come with braided supply lines like other Kraus kitchen faucets. On the plus side, those are inexpensively available at Home Depot and it's better to buy a set than have to use the low-quality plastic lines that come preinstalled on some other faucets.

Nice faucet. I placed in kitchen as a replacement. Installation not too difficult if you are familiar with replacing faucets. It looks nice and works well. The construction seems sturdy and there are more metal and copper parts and very little plastic. I anticipate it should be durable.
