Kohler K-597 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Faucet! I debated between this faucet and its sibling which is a little larger and I'm glad I got this one. It was installed last week and I love it. Pros: Easy operation. Pull-out has ball joint that makes it easy to spray around sink without actually pulling out. When select spray or stream, it remembers - I use spray most of the time and some faucets always revert to stream. Pause feature on faucet head - can temporarily turn off water, move to fill pot, etc. without turning the off at sink Great water pressure This was delivered at the time promised - thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the money but poor flow "This faucet is great for the money. It is well built and compares well to my Hansgrohe faucet which costs more. With the touch of the toggle switch, it goes from normal mode to spray mode and STAYS in that mode until you toggle it back. That's great when you want to wash vegetables. My only gripe is that it has a flow limiter that limits the flow too much for my taste. I really don't like big brother telling me how much water I should be using."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too sexy for my faucet I ordered the K-597 Kholer kitchen faucet thinking my old faucet was broken, but it was just loose. When this came in the mail just two days later I just wanted to "take a peek". Is it possible for a faucet 2 B sexy? I love the sleek lines and the finish of the Stainless Steel. I love that this one is metal - it feels substantial in my hands. The hardest part was taking the old faucet out!! The new Kholer was easy to install and I love the pull out nozzle. No weird tools needed, just a wrench and a phillips screwdriver. I'm keeping this faucet!! Now I need new counter tops and a new back splash to go with my new sexy faucet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This is the perfect faucet for my kitchen, not too tall, not too short. I love the fact that when you shut it off in the spray mode, it stays in that mode when you turn it back on. It's a great stream of water in both spray and regular. Also, the black is a nice satin finish that doesn't chip and the faucet swings very smoothly. The pull-out/retraction doesn't get caught up and is a great feature. Purchasing from Faucet Direct was great because they answered my pre-purchase questions immediately. Fast shipping was included!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kohler K-597 (Faucet): Bar Single Handle I recently had this product installed by a plumber. I love this faucet and would strongly recommend it. I like the clean and modern look that it has and I especially love the spout pull out feature. It's very versatile and convenient. I use it after every dish washing to wash down the sink. I have an undermounted sink, so the flexibility of the spout helps me wash closely around the sink. The feature to change the water flow is also wonderful. I use that often too. This faucet looks awesome in my new kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase This faucet, even though its the smaller one fits great in my smaller kitchen. Looks fantastic, works great, and the price was fair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality faucet The Kohler K-597 looks stylish and performs really well. I bought the stainless steel model, which looks great with my stainless steel sink. It would go really well with stainless appliances too. My bar sink has only a single hole, so I didn't need the escutcheon plate. Mounting it without the escutcheon makes it even sleeker than in the pictures. The faucet switches easily between stream and spray, and remembers which one you had on the next time you turn it on. The spray focuses more narrowly than some faucets I have used, so it directs a lot of force at what you are washing without spraying all over the rest of the sink. The pull-down sprayer seems to be made of metal rather than just plastic - in any case, it is very solid and substantial. And it stays securely in place when it is not pulled-down. In terms of size, the K-597 is tall and has a long reach for a bar / prep sink faucet. But it is slim, so it doesn't seem like it is looming over the sink. It it great with my 15-inch square bar sink without overwhelming it. And it would still be big enough for a somewhat larger sink than that, so if you have a fairly small kitchen sink, you could probably use this as your primary kitchen faucet. I like this faucet so much that I am seriously thinking of getting another one for my kitchen, either this one or possibly its larger sibling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my faucet Checked out other faucets and have been on the hunt for at least 2 years for replacement. Revamping an older kitchen and wanted to upgrade without breaking the bank. Sink was ready to be replaced and wanted stainless. Read all reviews, pros and cons. Purchased the faucet in Chrome finish and it looks great on the new stainless double bowl sink. Only had 1 minor problem with water flow and that turned out to be at the inlet and not the faucet. Contacted Kohler when water flow problem occurred and couldn't ask for better support. Purchase faucet from Faucet Direct and they came through with flying colors. Got the new faucet in 2 days!
