E Liquid Soap Dispenser Deck Mounted
Not worth it!
I bought this to match our faucet. It's made of plastic that is coated with a "metal" finish. Over time this finish chips off or rubs off. Also, small amounts of dish soap will collect around the base which makes it difficult to remove the dispenser in order to refill it. Lastly, soap eventually oozes into the spring mechanism inside the dispenser and the dispenser stops working all together. I called the HG company and they said you're suppose to clean this out weekly (I don't have time for that). My cheap, plastic hand soap containers that I never clean never gives me this problem, so why should this?
Bottom line: overprice for plastic and clogging issues.

When we remodeled our kitchen two years ago and put in a Hansgrohe faucet we naturally installed this suggested soap dispenser. It performed okay for the first year but it was always messing up the counter edge because the reach of the spout is short. Then several months ago the pump vacuum was no longer effective and it took at least 20 pumps to get the soap to come out. We have now replaced it with an off-brand, long-spout dispenser and are much more pleased with this one. You barely tap the pump and more than enough soap comes out.

This soap dispenser is perfect. Small presentation above the counter but a large soap container underneath. The pump dispenses with ease and does not"spit" soap and water. If you use a quality brand of soap, then diluting it with water works great as the thinner product dispenses easier and saves on soap as well. The spout does not reach into the sink, but it is not supposed to. It is a soap dispenser for the kitchen where the product is dispensed onto a sponge or dishcloth; it is not like the commercial HAND washing soap dispensers we see at public restrooms.

spout too short
I have this installed at my kitchen sink near the Interaktiv faucet. The dispenser looks nice but the spout is too short causing the squirt of detergent to barely make it into the sink. Mounted in a granite countertop, it couldn't be safetly installed any closer to the edge of the sink. I would recommend finding a dispenser with a longer spout.

I bought this to match the Hansgrohe faucet. Too expensive for the quality. I can live with the short spout but I would like to be able to squirt directly into a pot sitting in the sink. But the real problem is the quality. The plastic "straw" broke after two years of use. Not sure why, just one day I went to fill the bottle and pulled the top up and the straw didn't come with it. Too much money for something that only lasts two years!

For the price it's just okay...
I bought the brushed nickel so it was about $100... I thought well it'll be heavy duty, last a long time and match my faucet so I bought it. It's just like the $20 or $30 ones at Lowe's. It does look nice and the shorter spout does not bother me as I always have the sponge or my hand under it when pumping to catch the soap.... If you find one you like that matches your design - go for it. Don't be stuck on the brand, as I was, it's not worth it unless you LOVE the look, the quality is the same as less expensive dispensers.

I purchased this faucet following an extensive on-line comparison of faucets with the specific characteristics I was looking for, and also based on the reviews on your web site. I agree with the other reviews I read. It is a beautiful faucet, that operates extremely smoothly. I takes a bit to get used to the operation, as it's different from traditional single lever (on the top) faucets, but i love it. The sprayer pulls out and retracts smoothly as well. It is a tall faucet, so make sure you measure before you buy. Shipping was quick and flawless.

I have the satin nickel finish and its peeling and chipping. Also agree with other comments that the pump stops working. disappointed, for the price I expected the top portion to be a machined metal, not plated plastic.

Nice Look; Adequate Function
From a design perspective, the soap dispenser fits in well with the rest of the kitchen. But considering it from a functional perspective, I am not in love. It has relatively weak pressure so the soap barely gets into pots and pans that I place under it. Some ends up on the countertop instead.

Nice quality product
This was easy to install in my new kitchen top and is a nice, solid quality item. More expensive that what I could find in the local hardware store, but I expect to get many more years use out of it.
