Single Handle Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray from the Forte Collection
great looking faucet w/ not-so-great functionality
While we love the look of this faucet in our newly remodeled kitchen, we HATE the function. When the water flows out of the spout onto anything in the sink (dishes, hands etc) it SPRAYS EVERYWHERE. It's a mess! And it's not feasible to only turn it up halfway - there's not enough pressure to rinse anything. so you must turn it up to full pressure, but that's when it sprays everywhere. As soon as it comes in contact with anything besides the bottom of the sink, water shoots out all over the counter (and anyone standing in front of the sink).
We'd like to return it...but not sure we can since it's been installed.
VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS PRODUCT.

Excellent appearance - Satisfactory Performance
We have Kohler fixtures throughout our bathrooms, but his was our first Kohler purchase for the kitchen. We've had this installed in our new kitchen for about 3 weeks now. We love the way it looks and are satisfied with the way it performs. It has that wonderful, solid Kohler "feel" to it. The faucet swivels smoothly from sink to sink. My husband thinks the sprayer is not as powerful as he would like to spray food off the dishes before placing in the dishwasher...but that is a matter of preference. Too strong and it splashes everywhere. I'm satisfied with the force. We are experiencing some residual "dripping" from the sprayer after you turn the water off and set it back in its hole. This pools on the granite around its base. Kohler is sending a new sprayer and diverter to remedy the problem. Kohler does have a pretty good service reputation--from our present and past experience.

It was hard for me to read the negative reviews of this product as I've had one for nearly 5 years and have encountered not a single issue. As a matter of fact, just yesterday I had granite counter tops and back splash installed along with a new sink and opted to re-install my Kohler faucet. It looks like I just purchased it yesterday (with the exception of the sprayer base-plastic). Take a look around at some of the newer faucets, including the fancy touch units-$400 and they are lightweight, cheap and probably lose their finish in a few years. Call me old fashioned, but I'll stick with something I TRUST!

Stunning Looks and Sheer Elegance
We wanted some faucet with more than average height, some elegance, separate sprayer and faucet control and this fit the bill in all terms. After having installed in the kitchen, all the guests who have visited our home were more than impressed by the shape, sheer elegance and looks of this one - and why not..A very excellent product with a very decent price. We also installed a polished chrome soap dispenser with it and with that, it seems to be a complete package. The sprayer can extend a long distance and works great. We installed the sprayer to the lest of the faucet sprout while keeping the control to the right.

Great Customer Service
One never knows if an internet company can really be trusted, right? This company is one of the best! Ordering was easy, even though I wanted to call because of a few product questions. The representative was knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. The product was received quickly, but had a manufacturing defect. I called Faucet Direct and they were very solicitous and quickly got another sent out. The faucet itself seems solid, but as I said the first one had defects.The finish was marred, and maybe it's because the spout is so curved, but it kinda drips immediately after shutting it off. Overall, this was a good purchase at a reasonable price.

Bought this faucet for our kitchen remodel. It was a breeze to install. Save money, forget the plumber. The sleek, curving design goes well with the new granite counter top. In fact, we've been oohing and ahing over it as much as the counter top! Easy to install, works wonderfully, looks beautiful!
Plus Faucetdirect shipped super fast. We had the faucet two days after ordering. Wow! Their prices are great too. We shopped around and couldn't find a better price.

A very, very good faucet set.
I am pleased to review my purchase of the Kohler K-10430 Single Handle Kitchen faucet. First of all the price was right and the delivery time (2 days) was exceptional. All arrived in good condition.
Now that the set has been installed and used for about a month, I have nothing but good to say about this product. It is expertly crafted, it looks good and it is a pleasure to use. I am sure I will be using FaucetDirect again.

Nice Kitchen Faucet
This Faucet is very nice. It should be for the cost. I was looking for a specific hole count so I could add a filter to the remaining hole in the sink. I also wanted a tall faucet to accommodate big pots. I love the lever feature and the brushed finish. The only think I do not like about the ensemble is the sprayer is plastic vs. metal. Other than that, it is beautiful and worth the investment. Pros: look, features, reliable name, ergonomically correct, fit needs of purchaser. Cons: plastic sprayer vs. metal. Directions were not written for the average homeowner - alot was assumed - not enough detail.

This faucet is one of the few that has a matching prep faucet. Both are sleek and solid. We also installed this faucet style in a previous house and loved it. No problems with it. We purchased the brushed nickel version, and it compliments the black granite sink beautifully. Note: The sprayer is not the one that came with the faucet set.
