Minta Kitchen Faucet Modern Pullout Spray with SilkMove Ceramic Cartridge - Locking Spray Control
The faucet looks better installed than I ever dreamed. The pullout spray is easy to use, and locks back into place when done. Swivel tension can be adjusted. The installer grumbled a little at picture only installation instructions but it didn't take him much time at all to do the work. It's a solid fixture which only time will tell how well it holds up to daily use. I love it.
Faucet.com was very helpful in answering some questions I had, and delivery was quick. I'll definitely return to this company for future needs, as the faucet was purchased in the first stage of renovations.

When compared to other products in the line, the Minta series is superior in modern design fit to a modern kitchen. Although all retailers are exploiting consumers with the unacceptable higher price for the stainless finish, it was worth it for a coordinated kitchen. Installation was easy, and the faucet has a fit and finish that tells me it will last many years beyond the kitchen itself. Superb ergonomic and thoughtful German design with rugged bronze and ceramic construction features. Grohe is also a "greener" and more "sustainable" manufacturer as compared to competitors, should that help your decisionmaking.

I would not recommend and suprised at how many good comments this faucet has gotten.
1. Cannot change the spray w/out turning off the water Major inconvenience
2. It is very high & it makes huge splashes in my undermount sink. Splashes all over my granite counter all the time. Have to warn all company to be careful and turn it on low or it splashes even out of the sink and onto the floor.
I loved the idea of the very small pullout spray head but we have 3 houses and this is my least favored faucet.
Would not buy again.

Beautiful but dissapointing
I love the simple elegant style. But I will have to replace this faucet for another easier to use. It does not have a good aerator so it splashes a lot! I installed a Kraus sink and it is very deep for this faucet. The pull down feature is good, but to lock it back in place it takes effort, not a simple magnetic lock in. To return to a normal stream of water, you need to turn the faucet off. How I wish it worked just fine, it is beautiful and was really easy to install.

great experience & product
Grohe makes good stuff and this faucet was the perfect design for our kitchen. One thing to note is that the water comes from high enough that it can splash a bit. The sprayer feature is a bit narrow.
I want to compliment FaucetDirect customer service. The faucet came in a damaged box and it was more than a mth before we installed it. I notified them and they responded asap and were ready to take care of it. As it turned out it worked fine. It's built very well so it would be pretty hard to damage it.

This faucet is gorgeous! The pull-out spray function works very well, and the height allows for big pots to get underneath. And, it is beautiful to look at.
When the faucet first arrived, the handle on the on/off lever was broken. I called Faucet Direct who put me in touch with Grohe within minutes. Grohe put a new piece in the mail and I had a perfect faucet just days later. The customer service was fantastic, as usual with Faucet Direct.
5 stars all the way!

good looking faucet
This faucet replace a far more expensive one and is very good looking I love the pull out spray. Drawbacks are that because it is so high it splashes a lot and that if the handle is set to the front, as it had to be with a window sill behind it, the hot and cold symbols are reversed; the cold is on the left instead of the right. You could ignore the symbols which are very small anyway. With these minor drawbacks it's still a great faucet.

Love this faucet
We both love this faucet. Even though the straight down water stream takes a bit of getting used to to avoid excessive splashing, it's great. Installation was easy and it looks super - very modern lines. I really like how the pull-out spray nozzle seats back into the neck with a secure click. It was pricy but worth the money. Delivery was fast.

I've been using the faucet for 2 weeks now and I love it. I'm glad I spent a bit more. You see the quality as soon as you open the box. Easy to install and incredibly functional and stylish. I put this on the Blanco 511-607 Double Basin Granite Kitchen Sink and I couldn't be happier with either product.

Amazing Faucet and Great Service!
This is a beautiful - top of the line faucet! Faucet Direct had the best price we found and we got it super fast! Everyone that sees our new kitchen faucet comments on how much they love it (also great reach with the pull down which is needed with our deep single basin sink!)
