Pull Down Spray Kitchen Faucet From the Opulence Collection
Slow flow Faucet
This faucet is very stylish & looks Great but performance stinks. Suppose to have a flow rating of 2.5gpm. It took so long to fill sink to wash dishes we decided to time it and got 1 gal in 53 seconds. Thats less than half of what it should be.

Color does not last
WE purchased our Opulence in Jan 2006 for our kitchen remodel. We wanted the Oil rubbed bronze. Very beautiful, slow water pressure and after 4 years the color is worn off the head and the handle. The pull down and the hose works for what we required. The rubber selector switch for spray or stream has not held up either. We are either going to replace the faucet or the faucet head, if we can find parts for it. In some ways, I am disappointed and will not purchase fancy rubbed anything anymore or jsy learn to replace klitchen and bathroom faucets every three to four years.

I loved the look of this faucet and was impressed with the exterior build quality of the product. Unfortunately, its performance left much to be desired. The problem was slow to no water pressure. I cleaned the ceramic filter, replaced the entire faucet bell assembly three times and installed an $1800.00 water softener to try to get this thing to work. The last straw was the diagnosis of a blocked mixing unit within the faucet. At the recommendation of my plumber, I will replace it with a Moen 7185 unit from the Brantford Collection. Oh, I also had to put the handle back on the faucet about once every three months because the set screw continually worked itself loose. I really loved this faucet and wished it would have worked.

Great faucets and customer service
Our entire house is Danze Opulence and I love it! It is beautiful, functional and long-lasting. I have had to call their customer service regarding a spray head and a couple of mixer valves and they always send replacements immediately for FREE if you pay the shipping. We are talking about parts that would cost hundreds of dollars for only the cost of shipping. I don't know about the people complaining about the availability or difficulty getting parts, but just call their customer service and they will be shipped the next day. They have a lifetime warranty. What can you complain about!!

Great looking, sturdy heavy duty faucet. My plumber said it is harder to install than other brands. It is much larger than I expected, but is very easy to wash large pans etc...... since it has such a high arch. Only installed a couple of weeks but so far no complaints.

When I first ordered the faucet I didn't know it was on back-order and was kind of disappointed when I found out. I wound up having to put my old faucet into my new sink for a few days, which meant 2 faucet installs for the same kitchen remodel. Hubby was great, though, and catered to my whim. Now have the new faucet installed with everything else and I absolutely love it.
This faucet is really tall and I'm able to stand very tall items up in my sink and still get the faucet spraying directly inside. I couldn't be happier!

Happy with purchase
I purchased this after reading other reviews and am very happy. I had a large apron sink installed and it matches it perfectly--the sink is very big, the faucet is very big. I agree that the water pressure is not as strong as you would expect for the size of the faucet, however, after reading the reviews, I decided that wasn't a big issue for me. The water flow is normal. I'm glad I purchased this in stainless stell, and looking at other stores, websites, the price was very good here.

A wonderful purchase.
The Danze faucet arrived in a presentation box that not only impressed us but also impressed our contractor. We are very pleased with the Danze faucet. It is a quality product and everything we wanted in a kitchen faucet. It is paired with a Blanco black granite sink and the pair is very striking especially sitting on and undermounted to our Verde Peacock granite counter tops. We would and have recommended the Danze product line to others and will continue.

Not A Smart Buy
Beautiful! However, the pull out chord leaks. Since we built a new house, I was not able to install the product right away. I ended up shopping locally to buy a replacement chord for it. No one in my area handles Danze. After purchasing all Danze products for my house and having an issue with each product, I understand why Danze is not handled in our stores. It continues to have a slight leak but barely noticeable.

Good product, but.....
We bought the faucet in the antique copper finish - which almost perfectly matched the existing kitchen finish. As it patina's it will be perfect. We were replacing a two-handle plus spray faucet set that had a fixed spout. We prefer the pull-out spout, particularly because the sink is a large, double sink.
The only real downside elements to this faucet are:
1 - it is "light-weight". It does not have a real solid feel in your hand; the spout, the single-handle water flow control, and the spout head all feel light-weight.
2 - Additionally, the magnetic collar that holds the spout head into the spout neck is rather weak, so it is not a solid fixation when you push them together.
At the price, it seems kinda light-weight, but it is perfectly functional.
