Pullout Spray Kitchen Faucet with Soap Dispenser
...an excellent buy
The Faucet Direct ordering experience was super, with quick delivery and a fabulous price.
My wife and I love the looks of our Krause faucet, but I must confess that the installation was more difficult than expected, primarily due to the lousy instructions.
A couple of comments: (1) I miss having a sprayer. (2) with the control handle mounted to the right of the faucet, it seems that I am always soaking my sleeve, trying to turn the faucet off. Shouldn't the control lever be facing the user? (3) The soap dispenser initially didn't work, I fixed it by cutting 1/4 inch off the supply tube, making the cut at a 45 degree angle.

We used this faucet in a small kitchen we are remodeling. The clean lines of the faucet worked great in giving the look we wanted. The faucet is very well made and looks great mounted in the quartz counter top. We would definitely recommend this faucet. The one thing it doesn't have is the dual spray head, but in this setting it wasn't an issue.

Well Engineered and Constructed
This faucet surpasses and outperforms any similar product made/sold by the large brands for 3 reasons: (1) it is all-brass construction, including the pulldown nozzle, whereas most pulldown nozzles are painted plastic and cheap in feel and function; (2) the pulldown retracts with a basic spring mechanism, ensuring that it "seats" right back into the faucet stem, whereas almost all other brands need to be pushed back in place and often become unseated and droop with time; and (3) it is quiet and forceful because it is solidly engineered and constructed.
The only minor negative - but not for me - is that the pulldown is NOT a spray as advertised - it simply pulls down the full flow of water. Having had sprays before, this turns out to be an improvement, as it is more forceful for rinsing dishes and pots before putting them in the dishwasher, and it doesn't spray all over the counter!
Great service from this vendor too! We received the product in 2 business days.

My kitchen is tiny, with a small stainless steel sink/counter. I needed a tall, but still compact faucet. The Kraus works. Nice water pressure. Height allows for rinsing/filling large pots, etc. Did not realize until after I paid for install that there was no sprayer as specified. Pullout becomes somewhat useless without it. Still, a good buy. Better than anything for the price from a home improvement center. Great service in exchange when I ordered the wrong finish. I will use "FaucetDirect" again.

Best Looking faucet on the planet!
My husband and I are both architects and have a rental property which we designed and renovated ourselves. We decided to upgrade the kitchen between tenants and chose this faucet and couldn't be happier! The tenants love it! I'm just jealous it's not in my own kitchen! For the price, you can't beat it. Great quality too! We're super happy! Delivery speed was amazing too! I will definitely be using Faucet Direct when it's time for my own kitchen remodel and will probably go with this faucet again.

Very Nice for the Price
Faucet and soap dispenser are a nice set, especially for the price. Attractive, good water flow, and easy to install. The fact that the soap bottle is clear so one can see the level is a nice touch. Note that the faucet, while it has a pull out feature, does NOT have a sprayer. Also, the material of construction on the soap dispenser is not optimal--if the soap sits unused for a couple of days, it squirts out green. (There is some corrosion going on and eventually it is going to plug up. I've had it happen on other soap dispensers, too.)

well worth the money
faucet looks very good and works well. The pullout hose does not have a spray feature but has plenty of pressure so that has not been an issue.
Only complaint is that the quick connect for the hose was not locking in place when I installed it. Was a small plastic part that screwed into the copper end of the quick connect. But got a replacement within a few days and had no issues since.

We bought this faucet because it was a good price for a good brand. It looks beautiful in our kitchen and didn't take my husband long to install. We like how tall it stands and are pleased with the purchase. So far, it seems like a very high quality product and it's replacing a faucet we bought that was cheaper and lower quality so we really can see the difference.

Money well spent
We replaced our countertops recently and wanted to find a kitchen faucet that would look great in the new setting. Aside from the very attractive price, this faucet fulfills all our expectations. It looks smart and opreates smoothly and the matching soap dispenser holds 12 ounces and is fillable from the top. Great!

excellent quality, more than just pleased
Not only was I impressed with the quality but so was my contractor, granite installers and the template professional. It is beautiful undermount sink with faucet and soap dispenser. The shipping was excellent and quick. I would definitely recommend this product without reservation.
