Amazing quality faucet! Its a nice, well made very solid faucet. I have had this now for about 9 months and it looks like brand new. The finish is is beautiful,not too shiny and wipes off easily without leaving smudges. Beware that this is a very large faucet and I do wish i would have set it back a little more but i can deal with that. They sprayer pulls down and locks back into place with ease. I wanted to wait several months before posting my review to make sure this mechanism still functioned properly. IT is perfect..don't hesitate!
Very happy with the quality and function on this faucet. Solid cast Stainless steel construction makes for a solid, substantial, well made faucet. We had Kitchen remodel about 7 years ago and are now on our third 3 faucet already. First one was a Franke over top handle, next was a similar Delta - all we could get on short notice when the Franke broke. This Kraus design with handle on the side is more functional for a kitchen faucet since you often have wet / messy hands when using lever so having lever on top would cause our backsplash and faucet spigot to always be a mess. Many mid-range fancy faucets are just plastic with finish coating to appear stainless or brushed nickel - like the Delta we replaced. These do not hold up over time. I would only purchase a solid metal faucet from now on after having both. This faucet compares to others costing many hundreds of dollars more. So far very happy with purchase. Instructions are pretty useless, but installation was not difficult. They supply a special socket wrench for tightening bottom anchor nut. So no need for a telescoping sink wrench. Someone even put a you tube video online for installation help. BTW the blue plastic wrench thingy included is for removing aerator so keep it under sink or attached to supply pipe so you can find it if need to remove aerator to clean it. Flow rate is adequate but not quite as high as I'd like to see, but much better than Delta we replaced. Too many faucets today have way too low a flow for a kitchen faucet. I do not want to spend time waiting for enough water to do the job. I assume most people also want to get in and out of the kitchen as quickly as possible. One option I would pay extra for is to have the spray head articulate about 15 or 20 degrees. This would make it a superb all around faucet for any sink. With direction fixed as it is now, it tends to splash a bit too far forward for our apron sink. We just turn the whole faucet to the side when using it or we pull down the spray head and let it dangle a bit. We'll have to see how long it lasts, but from early impressions of construction I'd say much longer than the previous faucets we have had.
Fast delivery. Could not get this faucet locally as quickly. Great price too.

I really like this faucet a lot and I get a lot of compliments about it. It is exactly how I pictured it would look from the descriptions. The sprayer that detaches from the faucet is good quality and works well. I would highly recommend this sink for the money.

Perhaps ours was defective. Our contractor said it could only be installed with the handle in the front, which we did not want. My husband's dad is a plumber, so when he came to town, we had him look at it and he agreed with the contractor. We had to buy another faucet from *** on the fly, and we ended up loving that one.
This is not a dainty faucet. It's amazingly sturdy and sleek, appears well made (i haven't used it yet, however). Well packaged and comes in a protective cloth covering/bag. Has not been installed, will add a comment on functionality when that happens. gave it 4 stars since I haven't used it yet

It has yet to be installed (reason for 4 stars). It looks great. My only concern is that some of the components "shifted" during shipping...and others have already been screwed into the faucet...so difficult to determine whether ALL the items are accounted for. We will see...
