Kitchen Faucet - Includes Side Spray From the Fairmont Collection
LOVE LOVE LOVE this faucet!
This faucet is worth every penny... in fact, I would have paid double! This is our 3rd kitchen faucet in 5 years, and I had almost given up! We got the others from a "big box" store, and they were cheap plastic, sloppy, didn't turn off all the way, levers broke, etc. This faucet is such better quality, it's in a league of its own! You can tell the moment that you take it out of the box. It's solid metal and heavy. The separate sprayer works awesome. It sprays precisely where you aim it, and it has good force to blast food off a plate. Installation was simple. We got the stainless steel finish and it looks beautiful!

Nice Faucet, Drippy Sprayer
The faucet itself is quite beautiful in person. It's hard to get a very accurate temperature, however. It's almost all or nothing in terms of hot/cold and pressure. The most upsetting thing has been the leaky sprayer that it comes with. Apparently these things are made with cheap plastic washers and it took our contractor several attempts to bandage the problem. He thought ordering a replacement part would be useless- they're simply not well made. We're hoping his fix holds out so we don't have to worry about it. Disappointing given the money we spent.

Bought this to replace the Kohler Forte which had been leaking. Wanted a simple, classic, clean style for my kitchen in chrome, single handle, with side sprayer. This one fit the bill. Ordered, came in very quickly. DH installed it with no troubles. Works great. Nice stream/pressure from faucet. Side sprayer has great pressure (unlike the Kohler). Really like it. Does take a little time to get used to the handle, regulating flow/temperature but once you are used to it no big deal. Due to the design I find myself constantly wiping drips from under the handle but this is a little thing compared to the constant leaking I experienced with the Kohler. Hopefully this one will last years to come.

OK, but not great. Delicate finish.
My plumber recommended this brand and faucetdirect.com. I have only good to say about faucetdirect.com. The faucet itself, though, is only OK.
The Good. Clean but elegant style. Smooth operation of the valve. Nice flexible hose on the sprayer.
The Bad. Sprayer drips after use. Always have to go back and wipe a couple times. The finish (brushed stainless) seems to be quite delicate. Ours has a couple of nicks after only a month, and we have no children in the house.
Overall, this faucet works OK, but after only a month, even a Wallyworld special would work. Not good enough to recommend to a friend. Our previous Moen was just as good for a couple years--and it cost half as much. We only replaced it because of new sink and countertops "wanting" a new faucet. The old Moen still looked so good, the countertop installer asked if he could have it.

We were in the market for a "traditional" goose-necked faucet but didn't want the added bulk of a pull-out sprayer. There's plenty of options in this category, but the prices are often outrageous. A bunch of research led me to Danze ... which offers the styling we craved with the quality check-marks that nice faucets provide, but with a cost that's competitive.
The install was a breeze, and the action is smooth, predictable and satisfying. Moving parts all seem to fit snugly without being over-tight ... hopefully a sign of long-term quality.

Beautiful and Quality
This is the most beautiful faucet I have ever owned. It looks very classy, is heavy, solid and excellent quality. The sprayer is the same quality and very easy to hold, unlike other high end ones I have owned. The most respected plumbing company in our area recommended Danze above all other brands, and they personally own them.

Love the faucet - watch the finish color
We bought a kitchen and a bar faucet from the Fairmount collection. We loved the sytling and the way the handle works.
One thing to note is the finish color. The oil rubbed bronze is almost a copper color. It's a good look if that's what you want.

works well except for the leaky sprayer
I like the faucet overall, but I'm annoyed with the sprayer because it drips after using it.

A friend recommended this brand and I was a bit skeptical but I have been very pleased with this purchase. Installation was straight forward and the unit is well made. It had a minor but frustrating leak caused by a faulty o-ring. It has been installed for over a year now and and it looks great and works well. The lever action is precise and easy to use. The spray hose is also of excellent quality.
