Rated 5 out of 5Â by lindajoy Absolutely Must Have Faucet!! Love It!!
I love this faucet. I actually got it at a steal awhile back as it was on sale.. I cannot say enough good about it. Great design. Up really high for large pots. Can spin it all the way around to fill our pets bowl on counter. Sometimes the counter weight may have to be adjusted to bring the sprayer back up, but still a wonderful spigot as my Mama called them...

I bought this house a month ago and it came with a boring builders special kitchen faucet. I'm adding new accessories to dress up the house, saw this and had it installed by a handyman this week. I wasn't sure what to expect since they don't have it in my local stores, but boy it really has dressed up the kitchen. The faucet has a nice, solid, heavy, feel to it, two spray options and a nice pull out sprayer. Only negatives are the attached water lines are pretty short, required an extra trip to the store for an adaptor, and another water line extension, oh and it has a really, really tall arc, I have a deep sink mounted in the middle of an island so it worked for the kitchen, but may not for everyone due to it's height. The quality for this price, I consider it a great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MrLonzo This is NOT a kitchen faucet!
I WOULD recommend it, but not as a kitchen faucet. This is a bar sink faucet! Unfortunately, I did not discover this until I went through the trouble of installing it in my full size kitchen sink. Please check the dimensions before you buy! The gooseneck curvature is such that the nozzle does not reach out far enough from the backsplash to accomodate a full size kitchen sink, especially for washing pots, bowls and larger items. It is just too close to the back of the sink.
Also, the spray/stream mechanism is a little different than I've seen on other faucets -- this might have affected my decision to purchase as well. When you turn on the water, it is a stream. You can press the top button for spray, then the bottom button for stream again. Regardless of spray or stream, when you shut off the water, it will always start back up in stream mode. Previous faucets I've owned start back up in whichever mode was the last to be used. I use the spray more often than stream and would like it to start in that mode, but this faucet will not do that.
The faucet looks nice and has a quality feel. The nozzle pulls out smoothly and returns easily. If you intend to install it yourself, know what you're doing because installation instructions are cryptic. Just a basic nut holds the faucet in, but still I wish faucet manufacturers would come up with an easy installation for those, tight-hard-to-reach spaces which can sometimes be hard to even get a plumbers wrench in. I have seen some quality faucets with easier installation hardware. There can also be some difficulty installing the water supply lines -- difficult to do without twisting and kinking the flexible lines.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Carly Wish I had purchased something else...
I purchased this during Black Friday 2013 for the home I had just purchased. It seemed like a great deal, and the reviews were really good. However, now that I have had it nearly a year, I wish I would have gone with something else.
PROS: It looks great. It's sleek, shiny, and beautiful on the sink. It really adds a level of sophistication to the kitchen.
- Very difficult installation. Perhaps it is just our sink, but the hoses are a tight fit and it was not an easy install. (I can't say much more about it because my fiance did it, but I had to put up with all his groaning!)
- The pull-down sprayer worked for about 2 weeks and now does not retract. When we pull down the sprayer, it just hangs there; it does not zip back up into itself like some other models I have used. We're not sure if this is a problem with the weights (which we have tried adjusting a million times) or a problem with how little room there is for all the hoses under the sink (though there IS enough room for the hoses to move). So every time I want to use the pull-down feature, I have to go under the sink when I'm done and pull the hose down so that the nozzle slides back into the neck.
- The sprayer is not magnetized, meaning that there is nothing holding the nozzle in place when it does go back up into itself. You have to sort of lock it in place.
- The hot/cold handle comes off all the time. This only seems to happen when we move it to the hot position. (We rarely use the hot water, but every time we do, the handle pops off.) It's very easy to put back on, but this seems to be a design flaw.
So, all in all, while it's a nice faucet and it feels heavy duty, I have major problems with the main feature of this faucet: the pull-down! I rarely use it anymore; I might as well just have a normal sink. In the future, I plan to replace this with a pull-OUT faucet, or perhaps just get a separate sprayer since I have the extra hole in my sink.
