Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy Nice short reach faucet
We have used Moen for years and been happy. However, my new single sink was not cooperating with the reach of the old faucet. The old faucet came out so far it splashed my side of the sink. I wanted something that didn't splash, and was more centered over the drain. I also wanted a handle that I could turn off with wet hands so as not to drip on the shiny chrome and cause water spots everywhere. I also prefer a smaller fixture that doesn't block my window view. The Brantford Bar Faucet satisfied those desires. I've never had a high arc before, but like the possibility of rotating the on/off handle to the front. The only improvement I am considering, is buying the spray head from the full size faucet (Around $30) to get additional features... I borrowed one in a different finish just to see if it works... It does work with its stay on spray feature, as well as pause feature, which the bar model does not have. (Bar model requires you hold the spray button while in use) The only down side to the full size spray is it looks HUGE. It does dock very well as it is plastic and lighter weight than the metal spray head that is standard on the bar faucet. Maybe in the future I will change the spray head if Moen offers a smaller version. For now I'm very happy as it is. :-)
The photos are cropped by Home Depot and may not show my original intent. The first photo shows the oversized spray wand from the full-size Brantford faucet, not the one that comes with the bar faucet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RWWW Very pleased!
I purchased both this bar/prep faucet for my island prep sink as well as the slightly larger model for my regular kitchen sink. This faucet has the traditional look that I was looking for. I like that the pull down nozzle is made of metal because the larger version is made of chromed plastic. Also, this faucet requires you to hold the button for the spray feature, where the larger one can stay on spray. I also had to buy adapters for my valves under the sink. The attached hoses on both faucets are 3/8" but my valves were 1/2". Check this out before you install and buy the correct adapters at HD. I was able to install both faucets myself without the need of a plumber.

Installed the Brantford 5985 Kitchen faucet to replace a 21-year-old Moen product that had worn out. Installation was very simple and straightforward. The Brantford seems a little flimsy installed on a three-hole stainless steel sink with deck plate. There should have been three securing points (like the previous faucet) instead of just one - especially given the overall height of this faucet. Other than this observation, I am pleased with the product so far.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Megan good review but ...
The only draw back -- is inorder to use the spray feature you need to hold the button down the whole time. I guess we did not notice that when reading up on this.
