This is a wonderful faucet, and a wise purchase. Since the reviews had been so helpful to me in making a decision, I decided to write a thorough one to help someone else. I spent a great deal of time researching faucets, and finally decided on this one. Why? My double sink measures 16 front to back on the inside. This gooseneck reaches further into the center. The spray head has NO buttons, but works by twisting the head, giving it a variable between spray and aerated, so you can have spray and solid stream at the same time. Cant do that with the ones that have buttons, as they are either one or the other. I do not like buying something without actually seeing it. I was not disappointed though. It came in good time, and when I opened the box, I was amazed at what I was seeing. This faucet is heavier and far more substantial than what the pictures seem to portray. Very well made. The gooseneck and faucet valve are much heavier and larger than what I thought the picture showed. I am one of those guys that wants to do everything himself rather than pay good money to someone else who could not do it any better than I could. My old faucet was coming apart. I knew that I must replace it, but just did not want to go through doing so. Being 76, working on my back in a cramped space under and behind the sink just was not appetizing to me. Well, I was right. It was a difficult project, but most younger men could do it very easily. This was something I had never done before. Now that I have learned how to do it, it would be much easier and faster if I every had to do it again. I must have been like two hours getting the old one out. And then another two hours getting the new one in. After studying the instructions, and looking at all the parts, everything was obviously rather intuitive, so that was not a problem. It was just getting to everything with the right tools that could be used in the hard to reach space that made it difficult. A couple of tips: If you are replacing a faucet, forget using any existing feed tubing. GET NEW. The grommet washers / seals on the old ones will be molded out of shape, and you will have terrible leaks for sure. Do not try to save money by using them. It will more than likely just cause you time, wasted effort, and aggravation. (Do NOT ask me how I know that!!!) Measure how long you will need before buying. Too long will not be a problem. Too short WILL BE!!! The room with mine between the faucet and backsplash was about two inches. That is not enough room to work the handle that turns the water all the way on. I angled it just a bit by pulling it toward me so that the handle would clear the backsplash. So, that was not a problem, and looks just as good. I like to use the head in a hands free hanging down position, as it causes less splattering around the basin. This you cannot do if you put the included weight on the line. I left it off so I could dangle it hands free. If the weight is on the line, it will pull the head back in immediately when you let go of it. I just slide it up by hand when I am done, and that works just fine. I hope this has been of help to someone. Whatever, this is one fine faucet, and you need not worry over purchasing it. And, I do not think you can beat the Overstock price on ANY faucet anywhere.

We were impressed with the faucet, very solid and good-looking. Installation was a little time-consuming, but all went well eventually. At first the sprayer head would not stay in, but the adjustment of the weight line fixed that problem. I love the flexibility of the spray hose, I can now reach both my sinks. Good product, good value. Now I have to find a replacement for the water filter faucet in that same bronze finish!
This is a gorgeous kitchen faucet! It's big, and very heavy. Does not look or feel cheap at all. I have it in an undermounted deep stainless sink with granite countertops, and it looks gorgeous. Have been using it for over a year, and have had no problems with it. I get lots of compliments on it! Very nice - like something you'd see in a home design magazine. :)
Very stylish, nice faucet with sturdy design. The only backdraw is the spray of the water.It splashes the counter because of the angle-it doesn't point towards sink, since it goes slightly upward.

I had this faucet installed almost a year ago and it is great! I bought the shiny chrome model and it is used with a large, black, deep single bowl granite-composite sink and it looks fantastic! I am a picky person who researches, etc. and this faucet is a great deal for the money. I was skeptical at first as I didn't know the brand, but the other reviews convinced me to try it. So glad I did.... The quality is very good and the features are nice as well. I love the removable, weighted sprayer...so convenient to clean out the sink and push things to the drain. I also like the way the whole arm can be moved around easily. The height is perfect for my deep sink...I didn't want one of those TALL faucets that would splash all over, plus I don't like how they look. This height is perfect. The chrome is easy to clean and looks new. You won't be disappointed!
I WAS READING SOME OF THE OTHER REVIEWS ON ANOTHER FAUCET AND THE PERSON SAID WHY NOT JUST GET A KRAUS! SO I THOUGHT I WOULD LOOK AT THOSE AND I AM GLAD I DID. IT IS SO QUALITY FEELING AND PERFORMING. SLEEK.

I am in love with this faucet - has only been installed for a week - but I every time I come into the kitchen it makes me smile. It is stunning against the tile backsplash- I have the bronze. I was told it was easy to install. It does everything I wanted it to do - swivels, has an easy pull down sprayer, multiple flow settings, and is just a classy looking faucet. Love it , love it, love it.

After looking in stores for the same type of faucet overly priced we settled on this and loved it. For the price you can't beat it. I love the height, the different sprays and the pull-out sprayer. It met all our criteria and expectations.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was exactly what I expected, maybe even a little more brown but matched perfectly with our design.
I ordered this after much thought and reading alot of reviews. I was a little hesitant since I didn't know the company. What a surprise. This faucet was absoluttely beautiful and very well constructed. I had ordered a Krause kitchen sink a couple weeks before and after I received the sink and saw how well it was constructed and the quality of it, I hoped the faucet would be the same. I was absolutely correct. My plumber was very impressed .I would definitely purchase a Krause product again.

I do like this faucet - so far the only thing I'm noticing is that the spray is way too powerful! It ricochets all over getting us and the surrounding area (and me) soaked! I had to turn down the output under the sink since there is no way to do it on the sink itself (of course). To get it from one spray to the next, you have to twist the head which can be hard with wet hands, and it's a little stiff, but maybe it'll loosen with time.
