The Faucet we are reviewing today is known as a Kraus KPF 1602 Single Lever Pull-Out Faucet. This faucet is truly unusual in looks and size. At first glance it appears as if it belongs in the sink at the school cafeteria being operated by Marge the lunch lady yet at the same time with the triple chrome plating and industrial look it offers a sculpted eye popping visual to your kitchen sink.
This baby is designed with the look and feel of an industrial grade faucet and for under $300 this thing rocks in looks, power, features, and function! The Kraus KPF-1602 sports an amazing triple plated finish that will clean up nice every time and will draw everyone’s attention to your beautiful faucet.
You know just by looking at it that it means serious business in cleaning those dirty dishes or for meeting all your other kitchen faucet needs. This baby offers solid brass construction with an amazing triple plated finish (as i mentioned earlier) that will draw everyone’s attention to your sink.
With one click of the dial you can divert the water from the faucet to the pull out sprayer and then back again. The faucet features a high quality powerful flowing aerator while the sprayer has a 360° swivel spout. At the base of the pull out sprayer is a very large plated spring that will help guide the line to the pull-out spout and offer full support while you are working your way around the sink. The premise of this design is to keep the hose above the counter so you will not have to worry about constantly snagging it on things as on the under counter hose designs and not being able to extend the hose to its fullest reach.
The faucet features a sedal ceramic cartridge that prevents dripping and if the need ever arises you can operate both the pull out spout and the faucet at the same time. All controlled by one temperature control lever.
This thing is screaming quality and attention to detail. The Kraus KPF-1602 Single Lever Kitchen Faucet offers a very high quality and class along with a very durable fit and finish. We love the powerful spray and with the ease and function this thing is also a beauty. With all of the verbiage on the internet we have gone through to find out more about this faucet from others and longtime users are reporting great results well into multiple years with very few complaints. This combined with the looks and quality we think Kraus has knocked it out of the part with this deluxe triple plated faucet and that is why we are scoring this a 4.9 out of 5!
