Ladylux Plus Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet Single Handle Single Hole with SilkMove Cartridge - Locking Spray Control
BEWARE - Doesn't hold up
Don't get me wrong, we love the design of this faucet and would buy it again if it didn't keep breaking. Groehe replaced the head twice and the last one spray is now broken. The hose has broken once and I don't use it that much and am very careful with it. The spray function in the head is what breaks. Now Groehe will not replace the part because we have misplaced the orginal invoice - they didn't demand it the first two times. It is a great faucet when it works, but the parts keep breaking. The quality of the design is wonderful, but it is not good if parts keep needing to be replaced. I would avoid this faucet and try another. HOLD ON TO YOUR RECEIPT, if you want to take advantage of the lifetime warranty. I assume the policy was changed because of the need for replacement parts.

Very nice faucet!
I really do love this faucet. I have had it for about a month and no complaints. The only thing that I have noticed is that it does not shut off right away. After you turn the faucet off, the water keeps running for a second or two. I know this is not an adjustment issue, I just have to remember to keep that in mind. Absolutely not a drawback to the faucet! I love the look and would highly recommend it and your company. I am extremely happy and I did rely on reviews like these when I decided on this purchase. Thanks to everyone who took the time to honestly review . It helped me pick this faucet. A little pricey, but well worth it. I am hoping this is the last one I will ever need!

Great design, poor quality
We had this faucet installed in a second home 4-years ago and in that time, had to replace 4 separate parts. Considering how infrequently we use this faucet and the price, I'd say it's not remotely worth the money.
I'd give Grohe a high rating for design of the unit. As for the quality and value - not so much. I'd not recommend it for any household unless you buy an assortment of replacement parts to have on-hand. The faucet will not last much longer than the warranty period.

Grohe 33759 DSO Kitchen Faucet
In remodeling our kitchen, we wanted to use a Grohe faucet because of our prior experience with the brand in our bathroom. While Grohe is more expensive initally than Delta or Moen, our experience is that Grohe lasts much longer and is worth the cost differential in the long run, due to fewer repairs being required. We have used the single lever, pull out style kitchen faucet for years and were impressed with the sleek style of this faucet as well as the materials used in its manufacture. We look forward to many years of reliable use.

LOVE this Faucet
I am now on my second one of these faucets and LOVE it!
I remodeled my kitchen and tried to reuse the old model chrome (8 years) of this faucet..but the o ring was lost where connects to water line...and plastic was getting cracked....so just got a new one. Likely I could have replaced sprayer (but faucet had been dropped when old cast iron Kohler sink was removed)...My new brushed nickel gets lots of direct sun and handle still holds up. Love that I can fill large pots in my sink and water plants in kitchen window since it swivels and pulls out so easily. Great for washing hair since it sits so tall and swings easily. The pull out sprayer always returns in place...NEVER hangs down/out! (I have seen lots of pull "down" sprayers that don't stay in place).

worth the money!
This is my second Grohe faucet and I absolutely will never buy a different brand. I have black granite and the contrast of the stainless with the counter is very attractive. The handle pulls out and the base swivels so I can reach any part of my double sink with the spray. The only caution I will give is that if your sink is deep like mine and you put it on the spray option- you can get splashed. The height of this faucet makes it a long distance from the bottom of a deep basin sink. It is beautiful and well worth the money.

Grohe 33 759 Kitchen Faucet/Spray
Even though it's expensive it's the best looking product of its kind. Design and dimensions are superb. Installation is manageable by a DIY'er. This is our second. Only downside is that I wish the spray function could be used with a little less water pressure/volume. FaucetDirect order process was prompt and visible and went without a hitch.

Grohe Ladylux Plus - great faucet !!
We have used this faucet for 12 years and its never malfunctioned or leaked. But the temperature adjustment handle became a bit harder to turn last year, so I cleaned and lubricated the ceramic cartridge with Grohe silicone grease ($18 for a 2 ounce tube...expensive !!!) and now its smooth again.

Great Company Customer Service
It's a beautiful unit. The water does still drip for two seconds after I shut it off but you kind of get used to it. I will give customer service 10 stars though. Over the years I have lost water pressure. I just decided to ask them to send me a new replacement faucet head. It was no problem. They didn't ask me when I purchased it (10 years). They just are shipping it out to me. I couldn't be happier with Grohe! :-)

The Grohe Ladylux plus was easy to install and looks nice. If you use the spray, the faucet reverts to normal flow if you shut off the water or press the valve switch on the top. If you install with the valve handle in the front, the pressure is a bit more difficult to control, compared to placing the handle to the right side (or left). Hot/cold is well marked- but backwards from most other single valve faucets I've used. Strong pressure from faucet when used between 40-60psi.
