I researched & researched kitchen faucets...Kraus has quality stuff! The faucet arrived faster than originally expected (thanks OS!). The faucet came wrapped in a big, nice Kraus box. It's a nice solid feeling faucet. I have 3 young kids & I needed the quality but not the price- the wear & tear would be more than other houses! I ordered the chrome. It's shiny & beautiful! And stays looking clean (unlike stainless steel). I am very happy with this!
