Great Design, but lacks standard expectations
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really love how beautiful this faucet looks. Super clean and thoughtful design for adjusting the temperature and the easy on/off with the back of your hand or forearm when your hands are dirty. Pros: - clean design - easy temp adjustment that is set every time you turn it on, very useful when your hands are dirty. - easy on/off with push button operation. Also very useful when you pull the hose out and turn on with your thumb. One hand operation. - If you install it yourself, it is the easiest design you will ever install. German engineering at it’s finest! Cons: - pressure adjustment doesn’t have much adjustment. Can’t tell difference from lowest to highest setting. Also, pressure at Max setting is also pretty low. - no real spray head for removing food from deeper containers like your mixer. - handle design is a little awkward to use when cleaning out side of sink. Could potentially improve design by adding a swivel head to spout.

Hello, thank you for the feedback on this product. Please contact us at grohetechcare@lixil.com and we will be able to assist with a replacement spray head as the water adjustment should be noticeably different.
    Beautiful, quality construction, needs improvement
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Received this not realizing it was for a 1 hole installation. Manufacturer provided a base plate on request for 3 hole installation. Really like the push button on-off and temperature control, but it really needs to have a spray function. Also needs to project out farther to reduce splatter on the base and counter.
      Love this faucet!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this faucet! It is great quality! We love how you just push the button in to turn the water off and on - so nice!! The only thing we wish is that the top part extended a little bit further out because it is not long enough for us/does not reach everywhere on the left side of our sink... But, it is still a really great faucet and looks nice and modern!

        Cool faucet
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This turned out to be a really cool faucet! Was a little unsure of a no handle faucet, and the ease of use that wasn’t a sensor type of faucet, turns out it’s pretty easy even if you aren’t the owner, the ridges in the middle with the hot/cold indicator in color below pull you in the right direction of use and once you got it, it’s easy and unique and have had a lot of compliments on it. Installation is easy and Grohe’s quality is one of the best, you can tell as soon as you pick it up, it’s built solid and to last. The high arc spout with the high angle ,makes for a wide range of use, and the pull out spray with adjustable spray setting in the pull out handle is really nice. I would definitely recommend this faucet for anyone looking for a sleek look and modern feel but that’s very easy to use and install.

          Not a kitchen faucet
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Nice push button concept but not for a working kitchen. No spray feature, lacks pressure to wash dishes, about 1" shorter reach which causes splashing and very little difference between high and low flow. Push button would be great for a bar or hand washing sink.
            Grohe faucet
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] In my career, I have installed hundreds of faucets and I can tell you that this particular one does not seem to be one of the better designed faucets. It is well constructed with what I believe to be quality parts but for functionality I do not believe it justifies the cost. I would like to see a spray feature, stronger base design, clearer instructions for the average homeowner and the aerator tool included with the purchase. Thank you.
              Sleek streamlined look
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really like the modern design and elegant look of this faucet. The convenient on/off push button on the end of the spout is great when your hands are otherwise occupied. I like the fact there’s no handles or levers for adjusting water flow or temperature. The water flow is controlled by turning the push button on the front of the spout and the temperature gage is controlled by turn dial built into the base of the faucet, which is great, for that sleek streamlined look. The only complaint I have is I’m not use to having the spout that high from the sink so there’s a chance for some water to splash. That’s something I’ll get use to and work out.

                Essence Faucet
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I put this faucet in my office since it is one touch on/off. Opening the package the faucet is made well and is solid. The instructions are just a few pictures and no explanations. It would have been nice to know which washer went where, trial and error worked. It only took about 15min to install. It took longer taking the old faucet off and ckeaning the area. The faucet works very well. Can just use back of hand to turn on. The pullout works well but no spray function. This is fine for me, will not use in office. I think would be better mounted in counter not in sink as I did. It is heavy and stainless sinks as not that sturdy. Overall I am pleased with the Grohe Essence Faucet.

                  Not impressed
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was excited to get this product but it didn’t live up to expectations. There was a missing piece in the box which I had to get and then once installed the product wasn’t what I wanted. The pressure was lower and I missed having the alternate stream my old faucet had. While it looks great the functionality doesn’t match.
                    Love the look!!!
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This faucet is awesome looking!! At first was a bit unsure with a no handle faucet but turns out it is was very easy to adapt. I do get lots of compliments as it is a very attractive faucet. I would recommend to anyone!
