Delta 9178-AR-DST Review
In the middle of the price range is the Delta 9178, available in some beautiful finishes including chrome, stainless steel, and Venetian bronze. It boasts the MagnaTite docking system that ensures the spray head returns to the docking position any time it’s not in use. It has a built-in temperature indicator for safety and convenience, and Diamond Seal technology ensures years of leak-free performance and durability that’s twice the industry standard. With Hydrolock installation, this unit has almost all the modern features available in a kitchen faucet.
Kraus KPF-1622SN Single Lever Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet Satin Nickel
This low-priced single-lever faucet has an all-metal construction with corrosion-resistant finishes. It has a pull-down spray head with retractable docking and a hose with an added counterweight. It is fitted with a Neoperl aerator — typical of faucets twice the price — but it does not have all the spray functions available on some of the competing products. The Kerox ceramic cartridge has been tested for half a million uses. All mounting hardware is included with this purchase. This product is good value for money.
Moen 5995SRS Arbor One-Handle High Arc Pull Down Single Mount Bar Faucet
This faucet is priced in the mid range. It comes in four different finishes and is spot and fingerprint resistant. The pull-down spray head boasts the patented Reflex system, and at 68 inches it has one of the longest hoses available on the market. The Hydrolock quick connect system ensures quick, trouble-free installation and the installation kit includes an escutcheon.
American Standard 4175.300.002 Colony Soft Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet
This low-priced faucet is available in stainless steel, matte black, and chrome finishes that are scratch, corrosion, and tarnish resistant. Despite its low price, this great looking faucet is good quality and has many of the features of more expensive faucets. The swivel spout is high-quality brass. The pull-down hose has a pause function and adjustable spray pattern typically limited to more expensive models. It has a temperature memory and a ceramic disk valve and it comes with an escutcheon. With its limited lifetime warranty, this must be one of the best buys available.
Decor Star TPC11-TO Contemporary 16″ Pull Down Spray Kitchen Sink Faucet
This is one of the lowest priced faucets available, but it is constructed from quality materials nonetheless. Boasting a solid brass construction and bronze, chrome, or brushed nickel finishes, the finish is so good that this faucet could be mistaken for a much more expensive model. The high swivel spout is extendable and has spray or stream functions. The hose has a counterweight and the ceramic disk cartridge ensures long-term drip-free performance. This faucet has been around for a while and is considered excellent value for money.
Kohler K-560-VS Bellera Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet, Vibrant Stainless Steel
Just below the mid-price range, this faucet has features that give the impression of a higher priced product. With finishes that are corrosion and tarnish resistant for up to twice the industry standard, this classic single-lever design has a high-arc spout that rotates 360 degrees. The spray head has three functions. It has a ceramic disk valve, temperature memory, and touch control. It also boasts Promotion TM technology, a light nylon hose with a ball joint at the end. The installation kit includes an escutcheon and Kohler installation ring for easy setup.
Kraus KPF-1602 Pull Down Kitchen Faucet Review
At the higher end of the price range, this faucet is a heavy-duty model. Available in chrome and stainless steel, it has a spring-style design that’s a standard in restaurants. The integrated two-way diverter makes for smooth water flow. The faucet has a powerful pre-rinse spray and comes with a handy side pot filler. Rubber nozzles prevent mineral build-up on the spray head and the Kerox ceramic cartridge ensures leak-free operation for years to come. These faucets suit large kitchens. For those who are in the market for a commercial faucet, this is one of the best models available.
KPF-2110 Pull Out Kitchen Faucet Review
This high-priced faucet is made from the highest quality components and has finishes that are corrosion and rust resistant. The single top-mount lever offers superior control of water flow. For the larger sink, the full swivel movement of the faucet provides good access. The dual function pull-out sprayer with retractable hose and counterweight is the star of this faucet, not to mention the superb faucet head design. The drip-free ceramic cartridge is good for half million cycles. Rubber nozzles prevent mineral buildup. Although only available in a limited number of finishes, this thick, durable faucet is one of the better kitchen faucets available.
Moen 7594ESRS Arbor Kitchen Faucet Review
When it comes to touchless faucets, Moen is the brand leader. Using the hand’s free mode in the kitchen makes for easy, germ-free use. Touch-free is an entirely optional function that can be switched off when not required. For those who are concerned about introducing complicated technology into the kitchen too quickly, a user manual is included to assist with operation and installation. Units are available with the touch-free technology in a variety of designs and finishes, as well as with all the other great features available from the rest of the Moen product range.
