Pullout Spray Kitchen Faucet From the Opulence Collection
BEWARE OF THIS FAUCET
I purchased this faucet for a kitchen remodel in 10/09. One year later the bronze finish was chipping off near the moving part of the faucet below the handle and the sprayer had detached from its housing. The manufacturer replaced the faucet under warranty but I had to pay to have the old faucet removed and the new one installed. Almost one year to the date, the second faucet failed in exactly the same manner, with even worse chipping of the finish than the first. The manufacturer refused my request for a full refund of my original purchase price, but did agree to send a third faucet and to reimburse me for the plumbers' cost for replacing two faucets. They also agreed to reimburse me if the third faucet failed. Four months later, the finish has begun to chip off, the sprayer no longer retracts into its housing and appears to be on its way to breaking. Danze has been excellent and very fair in terms of addressing this problem. They are refunding my original purchase price, the cost of shipping for the original faucet and the price of having a fourth faucet installed within two years. Fortunately for me, the fourth faucet in my two year old kitchen won't be a Danze. This would have been a total disaster had the company been unresponsive, but they were great so my experience was only terribly inconvenient and annoying. Beware of this model, no matter how much they discount it.

Good for prep sink
Needed smaller faucet to coordinate with main sink but with lower profile. Fits well into corner available for installation. Well priced. Pull out spray somewhat tight and hard to pull out/ retract. Faucet head made out of light weight material and doesn't have the heavy feel of the single handle with side spray that we have installed from the Opulence series. Good for secondary sink.

After a search at Home Depot and Lowes I quickly realized that most if not all of the facets there were cheaply made and w/ plastic shell. This one is metal and very solid. I searched online trying to find a more qualitiy product. This facet is very well made and should last a long time. The oil bronze color is actually on the lighter and shiner side of bronze compared to the picture shown on the site. The soap dispenser is an exact match to the facet. Over all it works great for us and would recommend it.

Not only does the oil-rubbed bronze look like a painted copper finish, but the middle portion of the faucet is wobbly once installed. (plumber says its plastic). The pullout sprayer hose is nice quality. Ultimately, you get what you pay for with faucets and this is not a top-end faucet. Pretty disappointing.

Beautiful oil rubbed bronze faucet
I have had this faucet for over 1 year now and still looks brand new. I am very pleased with how it works. I read the bad reviews just now and I am not sure why others wrote reviews saying the finish is wearing off within a year. I have no signs of that. Maybe the folks with the problems are using a cleaner that isn't appropriate for the finish?? I use soap and water and it is fine. Definitely buy this! The finish is gorgeous and not too dark like some bronze finishes where they look almost black.

Danze D457014PBV Faucet:Kitchen Pullout Spray
To coordinate with the polished brass fittings of my furniture-like quality cabinets, replacing the single hole builder install in granite of a CHROME(!) pullout spray faucet, was not an easy find in a high quality product. The home is new and "upper end": Danze has the match in this one!
Plumbing function is fine. What an aesthetic upgrade!

The Danze kitchen faucet I purchased works beautifully. The spray pattern feature between flow and spray is a very useful feature,and operates with just a touch. The installation was very easy and the directions were very clear and explicit.I am extremely pleased with the looks and operation of this unit.

Ordered this faucet to replace an old two handle kitchen faucet that didn't include a sprayer. It took some work to make it fit into our granite countertop but now it looks and works great. Didn't even realize that it has two spray settings when I ordered it. Very nice! Looks stylish.

Beauty marries function
Beautiful color and style; works perfectly. We love the pull-out hose. Our water now runs faster through this faucet than through our old one (I had thought it was our water pressure before buying this). Highly recommend!
