Commercial Style Pre-Rinse Kitchen Faucet with Pot Filler
Magnificent! Beautiful and highly functional.
I had seen a very similar faucet in a magazine a while ago and just knew I wanted one when we remodeled out kitchen. The problem – they were so expensive ($900-$2000) – when I found this one at this price, I ordered it. It took a while to get here, but the wait was worth every second. The contractor was also blown away by it. It is VERY well made. It functions like a charm, although it takes some getting used to (the knob that turns on the sink spout vs. the sprayer).
It arrived in a velveteen bag, the box was form fitted to all the parts, so there were no rub marks or scratches. The plumber installed it easily as well. I also ordered (from another online source) the matching soap dispenser.The stilestone counter was cut to standard size – before the faucet came – the holes required are standard size (just in case yours takes a while to arrive). One note – this is a big unit, by no means dainty, but I adore it.

Such a great faucet!
I absolutely love this faucet! I've been looking for one for so long that was this tall without being $1000+. This is a very substantial faucet and super easy to install. It gets compliments from everyone that comes into my kitchen--it's a great focal point without overwhelming everything else in the room. I definitely recommend it!

Impressive all around
As soon as I opened the box I was seriously impressed with this faucet. Made in the USA even if it's from european components means a lot to me these days because it's so hard to find. Comes in a large box, all components placed in a cut-out foam insert. Very easy to install, love the fact that you can leave the faucet on and control the water at the sprayer or pot filler. Thought I wouldn't need the pot filler but it gets used all the time(mostly when washing hands). Looks impressive installed and works even better. My girlfriend tells everybody about it.

I recently sold my home in another part of the state. One of the saddest parts of the sale for me was leaving my beloved faucet.
When I started updating the house of my dreams here in Eustis, I immediately went to faucetdirect to see if the faucet was still available. It was and now I'm happy again. The faucet works beautifully. The option of a regular faucet and a spray head makes this a very versatile unit. The plumber was impressed with the quality and workmanship.
I highly recommend the unit to any home cook who uses their sink for more than one purpose. It is head and shoulders above any faucet available through the big box stores.

I must start by saying I have never written a review on a single product. The reason is because I have never had my socks blown off before. I am in the middle of a kitchen remodel and have shopped around kitchen showrooms and high end appliance shops and had thought that would not be able to afford the faucet that I really wanted. When I saw this picture of this product online, I sent it to my contractor and asked- what about this one, the price is unbelievably low compared to what we have been looking at it looks just like the 1500 dollar product. He had a lot of good reasons not to try it, he'd never heard of it, blah blah blah... I did it anyway and that faucet has been what has gotten me through the rest of the remodel. It is stout, it will blow food off a plate, it will knock your socks off with the way it looks. I also purchased a bar faucet at the same time, from this company and it's nice too, but the big one-- it's wonderful!!!

What a wonderful product!
I selected this faucet to serve double duty as not only my kitchen sink faucet, but also my dog washer. I'm getting to old to lean down over the tub. This is fantastic for that. I love how you can set your temperature and leave it there. I have the option of using the sprayer which is always readily available, or the pot filler. The water pressure is perfect. The only issue I have is that it is so dang tall. It took a while to get used to how large this is, but I quickly adjusted when I started seeing all the benefits. There are no problems reaching the far corners of my sink, which is quite large as well. I was concerned about stability without additional supports on a stainless sink, but it works. Would definitely recommend this product. Price was very reasonable. I had a plumber install it but I imagine you could do it easily. He wasn't used to such a fancy faucet so alignment of the sprayer arm was tricky for him but he figured it out. I love this product!

I've been using this faucet for about a month now, and am very happy with it. Price was under $300 but it performs like some $600 faucets. The sprayer allows for variable water pressure and I can use either the faucet or sprayer or both together. Somehow, it greatly improved the water pressure at the sink. Caution: The sprayer is really tall, so may not fit an under-cupboard sink, and would be a bit overwhelming in a small kitchen. It is beautiful, professional looking, and quite sturdy. No leaks, and was easy to install. Visitors always comment: "Wow! Where did you get that? Must have cost a fortune!" It adds to the gourmet-kitchen look we wanted.

I just replaced a less expensive, defective faucet with which here was no service or replacement available. I wish I would not have wasted my time and money and had installed this faucet in the first place. Works like a charm.
My only complaint is that the latch holding the rinse valve open lacked a washer to align its hook with the valve body. I installed a plastic washer that I had just lying around which kept the hook from slipping off.

This is a great faucet. I am so impressed with it I will either take it with me when I sell my house or buy another one for my next home. It has great water pressure even when the pot filler and the sprayer are on at the same time. The only problem I have had is that some of the parts are not securely tightened when you receive it and have loosened up while in use. They are all able to be tightened by hand so when you install make sure that everything is tight before using.

Great price and looks. Works really well, as stated previously it's a little confusing on the directions as to which is the cold and hot lines but that is not a problem to swich. The only isue I have is that the bar that holds the sprayer could be a couple inches longer. I'll try seeing if Kraus offers a replacement. If not I'll make my own.
Great faucet though.
