Low Lead Single Handle Pullout Kitchen Faucet from the Parma Collection
Fabulous Chic Faucet
I chose this faucet in oil rubbed bronze to go with a chocolate brown sink, it's SUCH a great color and finish!
This faucet is contemporary, stylish, simple, sleek, beautiful and SO cool. The functionality is top shelf, the water handle itself moves as if it's a large ball bearing, so smoothly and easily, it literally makes it FUN to turn it on !
I had my plumber install the handle to the left side, as I'm left handed, this unfortunately, put the small logo facing front at the base of the faucet. I'd prefer not to see it but, it's not worth a fuss and is hardly noticeable.
The pull-out sprayer has a spring coil for easy retraction which is great, this requires a little more effort to get it out and sometimes I use both hands to pull it, but it's easy enough to pull, hold and direct with just one hand. It has a good, solid, high quality feel to it... the sprayer and the entire faucet.
The shower setting is great and stays on until you either turn it off by the simple button or shut off the water. I use it a lot for washing my dog, who fortunately fits in the sink.
~ This is a FABULOUS faucet !! I highly recommend it !

Kind of cheap. The goose neck out of the top of the faucet moves around ALOT. I would expect that piece to be a lot more firm. Yeah, needs to rotate, but it doesn't need to move back and forth 1/8 to 1/4".

Very well made faucet. Looks great in my kitchen. Really like the extra long hose on the pull out.

Love this faucet
We installed this a month ago, and love this faucet. Very functional, has good water pressure, and very versatile. We did a mini kitchen makeover in stainless steel and it looks great. I actually tell people I am in love with my new faucet!

Love this - we've had it for about 8 months, and I still love it. I had seen some others of similar design that were around $2K (no way was I going to spend that on a faucet, even if I could). I was hoping the quality of this one would hold up over time, and it truly has. It's contemporary looking, but not totally over the top and ridiculous. Blends nicely with our mix of natural materials (stone/wood) in our kitchen - organic, yet contemporary is a pretty good description - and I wanted to find something that didn't stand out as too contemporary/bizarre but that def. had simple, clean lines AND practical features like the pull out sprayer (which works great, BTW). OK now I've written a book...

We installed it a month ago. Looks nice and works well.

Looks great - Poor design
Either this is a poor design because the angle in the faucet arm does not allow it to go back if you pull it out (you actually have to force it back in the housing) or just a defective faucet. Tried calling Danze and each time was on hold for over 20 mins and had to drop off...

Beautiful addition to our kitchen
We purchased the oil rubbed bronze model and it is beautiful in out kitchen. It matches our cabinets and countertops perfectly. Appears to be well made and the countertop installers gave us a big thumbs up and told us they install alot of Danze facets.

I installed this faucer over a month ago and I love it. It was easy to install and is performing beautifully- it looks and feels well made. you won't be disappointed it you buy it. The pull out hose is black and is long enough to reach all corners of my sink.

So far so good
We recently installed this faucet as part of a kitchen renovation. Compared to similar designs from other manufacturers, it represents a good value. That said, at ~$320, it's still bloody expensive for a faucet. Of course, this beast (it's pretty massive and tall, as are all high-rise single handle jobs like this) beautifuly complements the other elements of the renovation (read: stainless steel.....how ordinary and, no doubt, the soon-to-be Harvest Gold of the new millenium). So, I guess I musn't complain.
In terms of function, it works well so far (i.e., about 2 weeks since it went into service). The action on the valve control is smooth, exact, and intuitive. Consequently, temperature control is very good. IMHO, the handle is just large enough for the design, but also compact enough to be out of the way. I haven't run into it accidentally yet. The faucet itself pivots at the base, and this action, too, is smooth, not too heavy and not too light. The spray handle works well, though the spray selector, like most, is a little finicky: it wants to see a fairly high flow rate in order to maintain the spray setting. This is not a design flaw, it's my well's laggard pressure tank. Some reviews might moan about the spray handle being constructed of ABS plastic and covered with a metallized plastic sleeve (the sleeve actually might be formed aluminum, but I just can't tell), but all all-metal equivalent would probably weigh about 2.5 lbs, which is a lot to wield for any length of time. Does any manufacturer fashion this part of a pull-out primarily from metal? I doubt it. One final thing, which is my only real gruipe, and it's pretty minor. The pull-out hose could be just about 6" longer or the spring wrap on the hose about 3" shorter-- even though I can easily reach all points in my American Standard Exxon Valdez-sized sink, I'd still like a little more slack....
