Transitional 16 Ounce Soap / Lotion Dispenser from the Forte Collection
"Ordered this new Kraus sink and Kohler faucet to go with an unplanned kitchen makeover, and I waited like a kid at Christmas for my box to arrive. I opened the box and Wow! The facuet is simply stunning! The drain pieces that come with the sink are like jewelry for your sink. The prices on FD beat any big box retailer! You simply cannot go wrong. Shipping was timely and the product is great. To find a faucet and 16g stainless sink of this quality, you should expect to pay $400+ and that will be only for the sink. Accessories will be extra, I assure you. Thank you FD for helping this bargain hunter feel great and have a great looking kitchen!

Design Defect, Avoid this product
I bought two of these, worked great, until I filled them up through the top opening. Put the pump mechanism back in, pumped it a couple times and the pump mechanism bound up. The design has an intake hole that, if you get soap in, causes the spring mechanism to start sticking. When you pour the soap in the top, soap coats the sides of the opening and when you put the pump back in, it gets covered with soap. I can't believe Kohler hasn't figured this out.

Plastic Reservoir Broken
I bought two of these for my master bath sink. One for soap, one for lotion. To avoid the issues described with filling the plastic reservoir from the top, the first time I needed to refill, I took the reservoir off from the bottom, under the sink. I discovered the entire upper rim of the bottle was ready to break off. It was cracked more than half way around.
I'm not able to find a replacement Kohler bottle so searched stores for a number of other products and found a much smaller bottle of Noxema that has the same odd neck size that will screw onto the fixture. It will work but require me to cut off the fill tube. I'll also need much more frequent refills. The smaller bottle doesn't seem to be as sturdy as the one that broke so I'll probably buy several bottles of Noxema to ensure I have a future supply.

So far....so Good!
We've had this dispenser installed for about 3 weeks now and it's working just fine. Large reservoir capacity. Easy to fill. Instantly produces the hand soap on the first pump.

Looks great, works great
Just had it installed recently and the soap dispenser is just beautiful and compliments the faucet we got. I got it in stainless steel.

Hard to push pump
This pump is a beautiful piece but takes excessive effort to push pump to release soap. It looks great with the matching faucet but would not order again. Kohler did replace pump part but operated the same. Too much work to take it out and send it back so will use it as is.

We paired this with a K-10433 faucet and all turned out great.

Very easy to pump dispenser
Unlike my old soap dispenser which I practically had to beat on to get soap to come out of it, this dispenser provides soap with gentle compression. The only thing that surprised me, however, was that the soap is not dispensed from the tip of the dispenser (which is blunt), but from the underside of the dispenser near the tip. It would have been a little more convenient in terms of direction if the soap were dispensed from the tip.

Very Nice Soap Dispenser
I purchased this soap dispenser to complement my new Kohler Forte kitchen faucet. I purchased this item in the vibrant stainless finish. The dispenser installed very easily and dispenses a nice amount of soap with each press of the knob. The dispenser is refilled from the top for added convenience. Shipment was prompt and the merchandise arrived in perfect condition. Many thanks to Faucet.com!!

Could not find what I wanted locally, so I found your website, found exactly what I was looking for. Ordered it and received it quicker than I expected. The service was excellent, it fits perfectly with the other pieces at my sink, it's beautifiul and I love it. Glad to offer this review so others will consider your products.
