Starlight Finish: Continuously improving over the last 70 years Grohe’s unique plating process has been refined to produce and immaculate shiny surface that is recognized as one of the best surface finishes the world over. Grohe plates sub layers of copper and/or nickel to ensure that a completely non-porous, immaculate surface awaits the chrome layer. This deep, even layered chrome surface creates a luminous and mirror like sheen.
SilkMove Cartridge: The rich and smooth handling of our single lever faucets conveys pure quality. As you change the temperature from hot to cold, one ceramic disc glides effortlessly across the other with absolute precision. These cartridges are manufactured in a high-tech process and feature discs made from a space-proven ceramic alloy. The SilkMove cartridge is yet another example of design and technology fusing to bring you an enhanced water experience.

Grohe 32 642 Reviews

Excellent quality!This is a wonderful faucet, it looks great and works like a charm. The quality of the materials is top notch, it is worth every penny. I installed it on a 1 1/4" granite vanity with no problems, just the pop up drain was a little tricky to install, but it was my first time doing this sort of thing. Make sure you have enough room behind the faucet to pull up the pop up plunger, especially if you put a thick backsplash in, it could interfere. If I had to do it over again I probably would have had the hole in the granite drilled a bit closer to the edge of the sink (so the front edge of the faucet was no more than an inch from the sink edge).
The faucet was delivered quickly and was well packaged. Overall a great experience with FaucetDirect.com.

drain rod movement problemAppearance, faucet action, materials all good. I think the hole to accept the drain rod should be engineered better. ?Angle of hole through faucet?? ?Diameter of hole?? The rod tends to stick on the way up and down to move the drain stopper. Ultimately able to get it to work by adjusting the bend of the rod slightly.

Great bang for the buckSimple, elegant, clean. Grohe has no equal in terms of design and function. Those who have suggested that this faucet is overpriced simply don't understand the difference between a quality fixture, and the low quality junk sold at big-box stores.
The lack of an aerator is perhaps the best part of this faucet, and an important differentiator compared to Hansgrohe. The feel and look of the nonaerated stream is significantly more luxurious.
The smooth, high-quality movement is great, no give or "shake" or fidgeting as you see very early on with the more mainstream brands.
We also purchased the Concetto version of this faucet, which is similarly excellent and identical except for styling. Owned many mainstream-brand faucets, and Grohe is simply in a different league, with essentially no difference in price point. A great price for this sort of quality.

overall satisfiedthe product was very close to what i wanted, with the exception of the drain stem. i purchsed 4 of these, and 3 of the 4 came with bends that did not fit the faucet (each a little different), i had to build a jig using the one that fit out of the box to adjust the bends. also luckily, one box was missing the lock nut, but another had two. the faucet however has the look and feel it should.

Great QualityI bought four of these faucets for two bathroom remodels. I also bought the tub faucet that goes with this particular line and the shower handle. They are of great quality and from what I understood from my plumber very standard to mount. I am very happy with my purchase!

Smooth operation, simple modern styleI bought two of these faucets for a master bath remodel. I have never had such a good quality faucet before. Such smooth operation and good looking. The contractor
installed them for me and had no negative comments about doing that and it did not seem to take him long. Beautiful faucets and quick shipping from Faucets Direct. I will be buying more products from them for a kitchen remodel.
