Allegro E Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet with SemiArc Spout & Locking Spray Diverter
A real spalsher
Great, solid, nice-looking unit; however, it is so high off the sink bottom the watter really spalshes anything it hits. I have to wear a raincoat to rinse a glass! The height is great if you do a lot of really-big pot filling, but other than that, it is simply too high. The shorter "bar" version of this same faucte would be very adequate for most kitchens. The bar faucet is the very same thing, except shorter. We have one a or bar sink so we compared the height and it would be fine in the kitchen.

We ordered this becasue of its beautiful lines assuming we would have a certain level of quality. The first faucet that arrived had a pin hole in the supply line so I had to return it for a new one. (Faucet Direct was great about the return). I now have the new one installed and while it is beautiful the cold water barely has any pressure. I just paid a plumber to come have a look and he said it is a defective cartrige so I now need to address that issue (on a second new unit). In addition it is a bit splashy. All in all I would not recommend this unit even at reduced price.

Beautiful faucet but it splashes like crazy. You have to learn what to put under the faucet in an certain way so you don't get a bath.

Top German Quality
For the bad reviews below they need to get a new plumber. Either your sink is to small or your plumber installed faucet to close to sink. This faucet works very well and no splashing when installed correctly. Nylon hose is durable and cleanly(not to mention very quiet). The design gets me lots of comments when guests are over. The spray head is amazing. Highly recommend. Great Value.

Looks great, works great
It is just the right height for our sink, it swivel very easily, the pull out spray is weighted so foolproof (no spring to worry about), the 2 spray types work very well. It opens/shuts very well, so does the water temperature setting.
I do not understand the negative ratings, seems the buyers did not know how to shop for a faucet.
Great looking faucet that works very well!!!

Looks great, but it is hard to keep in the spray mode with low pressure. The spray pattern is too narrow, probably because it is so tall. The stream mode needs to be much softer. The handle is not smooth and progressive for volume or temperature. I would not buy this or recommend it to anyone. I will remove and replace with something else.

This Hansgrophe Allegro is working very well for us. We like the small footprint where it enters the countertop and the high quality finish. We've had it in place for a couple of weeks and it looks perfect still. I think this is going to still look great in 20 years.

As mentioned by others, I found this faucet to be entirely too splashy. Whether it's the height of the thing or the nature of the water (not aerated enough?), I couldn't get used to it and ended up replacing it.

Great faucet for the money
This is a multi-functional faucet that works well with/without spray. Attractive and well designed to do what it's intended to do. Big enhancement to our renovation project.
