great looking faucet w/ not-so-great functionalityWhile 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 PerformanceWe 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.

Fantastic!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!

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.

Friend of your water companyPurchased this faucet 1 month ago and have not been able to get it to stop dripping, streaming water. It seems the shutoff just does not go down or stay down entirely. Kohler will not take it back. They want ME to replace the valves - 1 month old!
I am stuck with a $200 faucet that I have to get rid of because I can't get it to turn OFF.
Be smarter than me - stay away from this one.

Nice Kitchen FaucetThis 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.

Kitchen EleganceThis 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.
Are the included supply hoses braided stainless steel or just plastic? If the latter case, can I replace them with standard braided stainless-steel ones?
