I read a few reviews before purchasing this item. I was looking for a good quality stainless steel faucet that didn't have any plastic parts. One that would not only BE a quality faucet, but LOOK like a quality faucet. I have to say, even though we paid more for the faucet than we did our kitchen sink, it was totally worth it! When you first get it you're overwhelmed as it looks really big! The box was oversized and when I opened it I was so disappointed thinking that I was going to have to send it back and look for another. But we decided to give it go and it looks fabulous! Really not too big at all and it's a beautiful piece! Everyone comments on how much they love it! It swivels and the handle is to the side. No issues installing. It comes with everything you neeed. Don't hesitate to buy it. You won't be sorry.
