So far this faucet has proved to be an excellent value for an all brass faucet with stainless steel finish - no plastic. Easy install with hot & cold braided lines included. Opted not to use the deck plate and used the 2 remaining holes in sink for hand soap & detergent pumps on our stainless steel sink. Very easy to turn off and on with one finger and very smooth movement. Has removable aerator if you need to hook a water filter to it as we do. For the money, you can't go wrong.
