Kohler K-12183 Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kohler Design Flaw We purchased this faucet to use with a small prep sink in our remodeled kitchen. The picture looked great and it matched the style of our main sink faucet, also from Kohler. It has a seam along both sides of the faucet that should be sealed tight, but the gap in the seam was wide enough to let you see inside and see the copper pipe inside the faucet end. We returned and reordered twice..all three had the same flaw. We went to Lowes and Home Depot and found the same flaw in their displayed faucets of the same model, so I can say it was not the fault of FaucetDirect. FaucetDirect was most responsive to my complaints regarding this faucet...The fault is in a bad design by Kohler...And hopefully they will correct it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Good! After reading the review posted from 2007, I was concerned that this may still be true. I looked at my local big box and did not see the overly wide seem mentioned. The K-12182 being the shorter one has gotten rave reviews and this faucet seems to be the same quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from extension good faucet, only probem is u might neeed to replace extention screw -bolt that holds the faucet in place to the countertop if you have a thick countertop. the bolt may be short but easy fix, just buy teh bolt for 2 bucks at home depot-lowes-menards.

  • Where is this faucet manufactured?

    A. The Kohler K-12183 is made in Michigan in the USA.

  • Can this also be used for a regular undermount sink?

    A. The Kohler K-12183 can work with a regular undermount sink, but the K-12182 is the model that is made for the undermount style sink.

  • Can you please tell me how tall this faucet is? I have a vessel sink that is approximately 7 inches tall (sitting on top of a granite counter) and was wonderfing if this faucet would be tall enough? What do you think the maximun height of a vessel sink should be that would work well with this faucet?

    A. The Kohler K-12183 is 11-15/16 inches tall overall and the spout is 7-1/2 inches tall. This faucet might be too small for your sink. You'll want about 2-4 inches additional height. I hope this helps!

  • Is there a lever to pull up to close the drain? I can't see one in the picture.

    A. The Kohler K-12183 does not have a lift rod at the back of the unit. So you would want to make sure to get a drain assembly that is either a click and lock style (push and lock) or an umbrella style (open at all times).
