Stainless Steel Pullout Spray Kitchen Faucet
We bought this faucet when remodeling our kitchen. It looks great with the new sink and granite countertops. Not only does it look great, it works great too. Good flow rate, easy to change from aerated flow to spray and back, easy to work pullout nozzle. The only downside with this faucet was that the installation instructions were in German. Fortunately, I had some German in college and the instructions had enough diagrams to allow fairly simple installation. So far no negatives with our puichase. Faucet came quickly, packaged well with no problems. Thank you FaucetDirect.

Love the design and heft of the construction. Also love that the head is metal and weighted, instead of light and plastic. No issues with the spray head getting hot while running hot water either (i.e., insulated). We did have an issue with the spray head randomly dripping as mentioned by other reviews. I contacted Kraus directly and they shipped a replacement head with no issues, and best of all, it was super easy to swap out, without having to replace the whole faucet. Great customer service.

Faucet looks great and pricing was good, faucet however drips right after it is turned off, when it is in the spray mode. The dripping does not seem to occur when it was used in the solid stream mode. The dripping doesn't last long it just seems annoying that it occurs, is this normal or is there a bad washer/gasket in it?

I love my new kitchen faucet. It has simple lines, is clearly functional, and looks beautiful in the kitchen. It is up against the window, and its large, but it has so much balance that it was fine. The base is very fat, and we had to install it so that the handle was in the front because it hit the backsplash if the handle was installed on the side. It doesn't matter, and I think it looks better that way.
The handle is sleek, simple and beautiful. The mechanism has a very subtle red dot for hot and a blue for cold to make it easier to know which direction to turn the knob.
I asked the plumber to remove the flow restrictor, which he did with no problem. The flow is extremely high, which is what I wanted after my last faucet, which had a very low lame flow. The flow is there when we need it, which isn't always. Its no problem. You can just adjust the handle so that it flows at a lower rate. It is capable of very high flowrates, so if you have a shallower sink, I would not recommend removing the flow restrictor, or it will splash. I have a very deep Blanco sink.
The control for the spray works very well. It has a small button for the small spray and a large button for the big spray.
The head of the faucet is made of metal, not plastic, and looks very expensive. Not only that, but the neck is metal too, so that when it joins back into the faucet the connection is tight and not just hose.
Very very well made kitchen faucet, and it looks beautiful in my kitchen. It was worth all of the research. Don't hesitate to buy this!

Oh so perfect, but tough to install
This faucet looks great and has perfect function. I love the clean look and large presence. Besides the fact that the main holding nut did not get shipped with everything, the install is rather tough, but that can vary depending on the sink and space available. Kraus was very good at sending the missing nut via 2 day air and everything worked out great.

too powerful for the home
This faucet is beautiful to look at but it is too powerful for a home kitchen. It would work really well in a commercial environment. The pressure is so hight that it spatters everywhere.
Also, the faucet leaked and the spray was messy, we called, a replacement head was sent right out (service was excellent), and the new head works normally.

Spend the money-it's worth it
This is a beautiful faucet that should have cost much more because of the quality materials and construction. I never thought the spray/flow feature would matter,but now I use and appreciate it.The flow fills my pots very quickly and the spray is perfect for washing my veggies and my small dog!
It did seem a tad large when we first installed it, but that's because we were used to a much smaller piece. But now it looks sleek and graceful.
One caveat is that it took two of us to thread the exceedingly long spring onto the hose when we installed it. But that spring is welcomed now because it makes the nozzle snap back nicely into its housing after its use.
This faucet is an elegant and highly functional element of our new kitchen.

Kraus KPF-2130 Stainless Steel Pullout Spray Kit
This is an extremely solid unit that functions very well. So far, no negatives to mention.

This is the best kitchen faucet I've ever owned. The construction is solid, and it works great. I like that it's all metal after too many cheap plastic fixtures that fell apart after a couple of years. The pullout is a bit heavy, but well balanced and fits well in the hand. It also looks great in my remodeled kitchen.

Kraus KPF-2130 nice faucet
Chose this faucet after looking at many. Quality was apparent right out of the box. One of the things I like is the spray mode doesn't require full flow to function. Also If you turn the faucet off in spray mode, it will still be in spray mode when you turn it back on. Very nice faucet.
