Single Handle Pullout Spray Kitchen Faucet from the Evoke Collection
Looks great. Many compliments on the style!
Great quality product by Kohler. Chose it over the Grohe Ladylux 3, primarily because of the fact that you do not have to "hold the button" to keep the sprayer activated. I tried the Grohe at a relatives house for about 10 minutes of cleaning and found this to be a real pain point. I like having both hands free to work.
My only complaint is that because of the narrower stream, it tends to splash a lot when the faucet is fully open. This is easily remedied by just "slightly" dialing the faucet back a little. Not a big deal, but I thought I'd mention it because we were not used to it at first.

Beautiful and functional
We are very happy with this faucet. It is quite beautiful, works as expected, and easy to keep clean because there are no crevices, only curved surfaces. I had thought having the single control on one side rather than in the center might be inconvenient, but because of the height of the faucet the handle is accessible with either hand. Other reviews mentioned splashing because of the height, which we experienced at first, but we learned where to hold items under the stream to keep water in the sink and avoid splashing. It was worth it.

Two different metal finishes on the stainless
Couple of things you need to know before purchasing this:
1. It doesn't come out very far into the middle of the sink (9 inches, but we realized we wanted 10-12 inches reach after installing this), so you will be reaching way back to turn the faucet on and off. This hurt our back very quickly because we are tall.
2. Because of the above, the water is running near the back of the sink and splashing EVERYWHERE. The water was all over the counters no matter what we did.
3. The metal on the pull out sprayer does not match the stainless steel on the base (assuming you've ordered the stainless finish).
4. It is very difficult to change the water pressure and heat with that little handle.
5. It's very, very pretty overall, hence the two stars.

Kohler Evoke - lukewarm
Cool styling, but arrived damaged in box. Dent appeared to be from the factory as the box was pristine. FD took care of it for us very quickly and easily.
Faucet splashes in a deep sink and the aerator died after a few months likely to our hard well water. However, our old cheap Delta faucet worked for years without issue. Also had issues with the handle "grinding" due to poor assembly features which allow it to be over tightened without knowning it. We fixed it, but it's a poor design.

Trouble with Kohler faucet
I am so disappointed in this faucet. First, it was pictured with the sink I purchased and the arm is too short to reach the drain so there is constant splashing. Ugh! In addition, the water stream changes from spray to single stream on the head by pushing a rubber part on the top. That worked well the first day and has been a problem since. It goes easily into spray but not back into stream mode. This is very disappointing for the price one pays when purchasing Kohler.

worst faucet ever
I bought this Evoke faucet through my plumber. Looks stylish and glamorous. It came with a faulty barrel so it leaked all over my kitchen counter. I, not my plumber, had to order the replacement part. Great service! The push button spray-to-stream button doesn't work unless I turn the faucet off. And the hold button that is supposed to stop the water in either setting doesn't do its job. If I hadn't paid $600 + for the faucet and another bunch of money for the installation by my plumber, I'd chose something else and it wouldn't be a Kohler.

Looks great, but...
I love the look of this faucet in my kitchen. The only problem is that it splashes. The only way I can get around the splashing is to reduce the water pressure. It's a nusaince a times.

Love the look of this faucet and its utility. Only negative is that the water comes out so forcefully it splashes all over. Have to open the tap very carefully and minimally to manage the flow, which is a pain. But the spray and stream buttons work fine and I love the pull-out hose. Saw other reviews that mentioned this and thought it would have to do with an adjustment, but it's the faucet itself. Needs a better internal regulator, I guess. Still, I'm happy with the faucet.

Faucets Direct is fantastic!
The faucet is a good faucet which we expected, but the service we got from Faucets Direct is the most amazing thing about this purchase. Two days delivery, free shipping and cheaper than Lowe's, I would recommend (and I have been) These guys to anyone. A++++++

W e just installed it and it is STUNNING!!! This faucet is beautiful with our granite counters, and makes the kitchen very modern and updated. Sure it works as good as it looks, but we haven't moved in yet. Looking forward to using it for many years to come.
