Product Technologies and Benefits:

  • Precision Kerox Cartridges: The cartridge’s job is to deliver smooth handle operation and water flow, throughout hundreds of thousands of uses, without ever leaking – all while under a punishing 60 pounds-per-square-inch of pressure. For these reasons, it is quite literally what “makes or breaks” the faucet. Kraus understands this, so they take no shortcuts here, importing their cartridges from the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision ceramic disc cartridges, Kerox in Hungary.
  • Swiss-Made NeoPerl Aerators: Aerators are possibly the most under-appreciated component within faucets. Not only do they soften the stream (preventing splashing), but they also control the straightness, diameter, overall delivery of water. Fortunately, like their cartridges, Kraus recognizes this and chooses to takes no gambles here – they import their aerators from NeoPerl in Switzerland, the world’s leading manufacturer for high-end and specialty aerators.
  • Heavily Certified: Kraus has gone to great lengths to be able to provide you, the homeowner, the rest-easy satisfaction knowing that your faucet is certified and listed by all the major product testing boards in the U.S. and Canada.

Kraus KPF-1612 Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Reliable - Poor Design I purchased 10 of these faucets to demo in an apt community I own. Three months after installation 3 out of 10 are defective. Parts have fallen off, spray head gets stuck in a setting, arm gets rigid and difficult to move side-to-side, and the design of the spray head is angled so that water is directed to the back of the sink - big concern if tenants won't keep it dry and prevent possible water damage. All these issues within 3 months is a huge disappointment. The price reflects the quality - you get what you pay for (except a $40 faucet would last longer and more reliably).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst faucet ever We bought this faucet about 14 months ago while doing a kitchen remodel. I had already bought a Kraus farm sink and was very impressed with the quality of it so I thought I would try the faucet as well. The sprayer stopped working after about 6 months,the hose has started wearing and now it is leaking around the button for the sprayer. The rubber part of the sprayer button keeps coming off and when it does water sprays out and hits you. I am now looking for a replacement after only one year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect finishing touch to our kitchen remodel We remodeled our kitchen last month and needed the perfect "frosting" to finish it off. We knew the look we wanted but spending $300 or $400 on a faucet was not in the budget. We found exactly what we wanted for $129 on your website! We were intimidated by the dimensions given in the product description and were worried it would be too tall! Not at all! At any of the big box stores that same amount of money would buy a boring, poorly made regular faucet. The Kraus "restaurant style" faucet we purchased is amazing! It is heavy, well made and was easy to install. Ours didn't arrive in a bag but was well protected in a heavy duty, padded box. All the hardware was included - even the metal braided water lines! It feels solid mounted on the counter, retracts and extends easily and has great water pressure on both settings. The spray switch on the handle feels solid. It is push button and remains set to the last choice when you shut it off- very nice! On/off handle is very well made and easy to use and looks sweet. The clean lines of this faucet fit into any kitchen and looks very "finished" once mounted in the granite. While at the HD getting some plumbing parts for a disposer, I checked out the ONLY faucet of similar style there. It was $249 and felt flimsy compared to the Kraus. No question a great value, especially at these prices! -Mark

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value ! The faucet arrived very timely and was installed without a glitch. It looks beautiful with the Kraus sink and works great. The quality is superb and the price was very reasonable. I would recommend to everyone ! It looks great in my "cottage " style kitchen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was good for 10 months We loved this faucet for the first 10 months. Since then the alternate spray button has broken and now the normal water flow is all wonky. We're going to try to get a replacement, but of course we'll have to pay for a plumber to come out for the repair. Ugh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality faucet Chose this faucet for two features: single hole design, because cleaning around one small site is so easy, and its spring feature. My husband is a remodeling contractor and said that the installation was quite straight forward and simple. The handle function is extremely smooth allowing for infinite positions. It is a sleek, heavy, professional looking faucet, which produces an impressive regular water flow as well as a great spray which does not allow for splashing on you when you place something under it, like my old Moen would do. Have only had it installed in my new kitchen for a few weeks, so time could tell a different story, but for now its perfect. Comes in its own protective, cloth bag too! Loved that!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Faucet looks great, functionality appears to slip Beautiful faucet, looks expensive and has a clean chrome finish. We have been using this faucet for approximately 2 months and the quality appears to be slipping. It appears to be leaking near the handle causing water to build up behind the kitchen stink. The hose appears to be leaking slightly as well; however, it drips in the sink so it is not a big deal. We are moving and have ordered the faucet again... hoping this time it holds out as it's worth the chance for the price!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! We did a major remodel to our galley kitchen and after hitting all the plumbing suppliers and big box stores looking for the "perfect" faucet and sprayer I came across the "Kraus" products online! I didn't want the pullout sprayer type because my husband was pretty rough on the old style separate sprayer we had that had been broke and hanging in the sink! I had never heard of this brand before, maybe because I am in the central region, but after all the great reviews and reasonable price, I ordered. The product was delivered quickly and boxed very professional. We have had it installed for about 2 weeks. It is very convenient to use and easy to switch from spray to stream. My husband also loves it and he is very particular! It was a great addition to our new kitchen! I also purchased the soap dispenser which is very sturdy and high quality.

  • Does the KPF-1612 faucet show water spots? Is there an instruction for maintenance: what to clean it with, etc?

    A. Good morning Esther, the Kraus KPF-1612 will not show water spots, however if you have hard water it may show spots and also perhaps leave residue from the hard water. But if clean regularly it will hold, cleaning suggestions are after every use with mild soap warm water, no bleach no corrosive chemical cleaners. I hope this helps!

  • If I buy this product, will I get all the parts needed for the functioning of the product?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 is a complete unit and comes with everything you need for installation and function.

  • can you use this tap with an over mount sink?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 can be used with an over mount sink as long as the sink is drilled for it.

  • does the faucet come with a matching soap pump?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 does not come with a matching soap dispenser. Order the KSD-30 soap dispenser by Kraus.

  • can i purchase this faucet in brushed metal?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 is only available in Chrome.

  • Can you add a cover plate to cover 3 hole sinks?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 does not come with nor is made with a cover plate to cover a 3 hole sink.

  • I understand that a Kraus cover plate is not made for this item. Could a cover plate from another manufacturer be used and how would I find the right fit?? My sink has 3 holes and I am a novice.

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 is unfortunately not made to be used with an Escutcheon, if you have a 3hole counter top or sink you would have to use filler caps for the extra hole.

  • What is a "kitchen mixer" faucet and what needs to be the clearance in inches between handle and the wall?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 handle should have 3-1/2" to 4" of clearance from the wall. A mixer, as it pertains to plumbing, simply means that it mixes hot and cold water.

  • Where are Kraus products made?

    A. Kraus products are made in China.

  • Are repair parts readily available?

    A. We unfortunately do not carry any Kraus replacement parts. Only the accessory items and whole units.

  • can the on off lever go on the left side instead of right side as pictured

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 can be mounted with the handle on any side you choose. I hope this helps!

  • I like this faucet. If I order this and a sink from you, do you drill the holes for the faucet and soap dispenser?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 is a faucet and not a sink. If you order a sink they do come pre-drilled.

  • Is the spray head made of plastic?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 faucet has a plastic spray head, but the rest of the faucet is a solid brass construction.

  • what color is the inner hose? can't tell if it's brown or black in the picture?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 has a black inner hose.

  • what is the difference between low lead version and this faucet?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 in low lead is designed for the states of CA and VT where they are required to comply with the low lead laws. There is no visible difference between the faucets.

  • What is the Gallon per minute rating?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 has a flow rate of 2.20 GPM.

  • will this faucet fit a 2" thick countertop? If it doesnt can I get and extension to make it fit?

    A. The Kraus KPF-1612 is designed for Max 1.4’’ thick counters and there are no extension kits available.
