Simplice Pullout Spray Kitchen Faucet
Looks Great but....
This faucet looks great. I bought it a few weeks ago after reading all the great reviews here. It was shipped immediately. Didn't install it until yesterday.
It was easy enough to install, good quality, has nice water pressure, but I don't like the stream of the water at all.
The "spray stream" is great and as it should be, but the normal water stream has a lot of overspray coming off the main stream. I don't even know how to explain what it's like.
I took the head off and tried it with/without the screen, with/without the water saver, and it was exactly the same way no matter which way I tried it. The water stream is not like any other faucet I've ever had.
I am NOT happy with the stream of this water at all, and now wish I had a different faucet.

Kohler Brand Stamped in Back
Overall, this is a beautiful faucet and it is functional. The weight for the spray is not working great, but it is functional and the plumber said that many of these types of faucets have the same problem (not necessarily limited to Kohler products). One thing that bothered me was that the "Kohler" name is branded on the part of the faucet that when the handle is installed on the right hand side, the brand name is facing the back. Part of purchasing the Kohler brand is purchasing the brand, and although the faucet speaks for itself in terms of quality, it still would be nice to be able to see the brand name. Perhaps the reason why the price is so right???? Last word: Loved it.

LOVE this faucet
I read all of the reviews, and decided this was the faucet for me. It looks and works great, and my husband found it quick and easy to install. It is a lot bigger than my old faucet, but I really like the scale of it. It has presence, plus the height makes it a breeze to fill up large pots. A few people commented on spashing, but I haven't had that issue.

Bought this faucet with the matching soap dispenser for a kitchen renovation and could not be happier. The faucet is beautiful and most importantly, functional. It feels solid, turns on and off easily and I really like the sprayer features, including easily switching from aerating flow to full spray. And the spray head returns nicely to its home. High quality at a great value.

For the price this is a nice faucet. Installation was easy right out of the box, everything was all ready to go. I've installed a few kitchen faucets before and this one went quickly. The connections went together easily and did not leak. I think the pull-out hose could be a little more sleek. The black rubber hose is a little bit of a let down. This uses a weight at the bottom of the hose to help with retraction and does not work as well or smooth as other faucets that utilize a spring to assist hose retraction. The operation of the handle is smooth, though there is not any label or indicator for cold and hot.

I bought this to go with a Kohler sink from the Vault series. I was really worried about it not having a magnet like those Delta faucets. I really have to say they must have either put a tiny magnet in there or made the weight extra heavy. When it gets to where its almost in place it seems to just pop in there. they have to have put a small magnet in there or something. I read so many reviews that were at odds with each other about it. I just trusted that it would work out ok and its fine. It goes back up into place really easily. This is the first time I have had a pulldown faucet and I have got to say I love it. It goes with the sink beautifully also. Not to mention I got it here for 20 dollars less than I could have locally plus there was the free shipping and no tax.

Excellent service & product
This matte black Kohler faucet works wonderfully and looks even better. Faucet Direct's site was easy to navigate & they delivered as promised. Highly recommend.

Great Value - Great Faucet
We absolutely love this faucet. It was an easy install, it works great! It looks fabulous as well. Plus we were able to find an RO faucet at Home Depot that nearly matches it in stainless steel, so it's a great look all around! The only comment is that if you have a shallow sink the spray can be rather strong and overspray hits everything around it, but we have a deep sink so it's not too bad, we use the lesser setting most of the time and use the heavier spray for direct spraying into the sink with sprayer nozzle. THe price is great for the quality. We put ours on top of granite. Also fast delivery. To date we are very happy!

beautiful to look at. . .
I love the look of this faucet. It was exactly as I pictured it with my new soapstone island. Couldn't be a better fit. I only wish I'd had time to find the matching soap dispenser. . .if there is one. I know that many faucets come with these as a set. Didn't see one here.
I also like the pull out spray; it works well. Without it, there's a little splashing, but I have a deep apron front sink.

We've only had this installed for a little over a month, but so far it's great. I'm only giving 4 stars because it's still new. We love the simple design. It goes with our transitional style kitchen quite well. It's not too contemporary, but not traditional looking either. We also got the chrome and it looks great in our kitchen. I'm not one to think that the faucet has to match the appliances or the cabinet knobs. I can't speak about the installation because it was installed by a plumber during our kitchen remodel. So far, we have not experienced any issues with water flow, etc. Faucet Direct was great and the item was shipped quickly. No issues there.
