Great Product - High Quality, Easy to Install, Looks Great Jun 06, 2008
I love this faucet in my contemporary home. It was simple to install (no plumber needed), it looks fabulous, it works like a charm (great sprayer that stays on handsfree), and it's very well constructed of high quality materials. It's not the least expensive faucet you can buy, but for the money, it's a great purchase.

Beautiful, solid construction and design Apr 24, 2009
By B. Holland
Love the look of the "pro" faucet. Originally was going with a Danze, at a lessor price, but discovered it was way to big for the size of our kitchen. The Danze is around 22" high. Only found two semi-pro models that were smaller, an Elkay and the Blanco. Went with the Blanco, even though a higher price, because it seemed to be a better quality. I did have a plumber install ours, had new sink and GD, so a lot of piping needed to be redone. LOVE the look, feel and quality of this faucet.

cheap PLASTIC handspray Aug 13, 2011
By michael toise
Buyer beware. In spite of the misleading information on the Blanco America website the handspray on this baby is CHEAP PLASTIC. You can save yourself a bundle of money by buying a similar faucet with a cheap plastic handspray for much less. And if your cheap plastic handspray starts to look a little banged up, I challenge you to find a replacement part. Do yourself a favor look elsewhere. Otherwise the faucet isn't too bad.

Read the description Dec 28, 2012
By David Jones
This is a quality product from a great company. I would give it five stars, but it has been a constant annoyance from the day I installed it almost two years ago and it's my own fault.
I worked in restaurants a long time ago to pay my way through college. This faucet looks like a fancy version of the ones they use to rinse dishes and wash pots, which is what I bought it for. It costs about twice as much as the real thing, but it looks a lot better. I should have read the description thoroughly, because even though it looks like the real thing, it isn't.
The problem is in the way it functions. The button on the sprayer end is just a toggle between spray and aerated stream. If you switch it to aerated stream, it stays there. If you put it on spray, it slips back to half pressure every time you turn off the faucet, so you have to hit the toggle every time you use the sprayer.
The big problem for me is that the only way to turn the water off and on is the main handle on the body of the faucet. Based on my restaurant experience, I expected to grab the sprayer, push the button, and rinse the pot. Instead, I wash a pot and then reach for the handle to turn on the water, then grab the sprayer and hit the toggle to get full spray, then rinse the pot, then reach back to the handle to turn the water off. The problem with this sequence, other than the multiple steps required, is that each time I turn the water off or on, dishwater from my hands drips onto the granite counter and into the workings of the handle, where it has to be wiped off to prevent mineral and soap buildup on both surfaces. I feel bad about being so negative about this, because my annoyance is clearly the result of my incorrect expectations and not the fault of the manufacturer, but it is driving me insane.
Another issue is that the hose is just a little too short to do a good job of rinsing the sink. Our sink is also by Blanco (Diamond 1-3/4), so I expected them to work together. Finally, there is a flow reducer which cuts back on the pressure, thus making the sprayer less efficient. I blame the federal government for this problem, not Blanco
My problem could be fixed by replacing the sprayer head with a full flow version with a shut off valve and a sprayer toggle that stays put. I assume this wasn't done originally because the designer didn't want the flexible hose to be constantly under pressure. Someone could forget to shut off the main valve, go on vacation, and come back to a flood, which they would blame on Blanco.
This is a quality product which has performed flawlessly. It just doesn't do what I want it to.

Great product Aug 30, 2011
This faucet is awesome. The quality is great. Nothing cheap and all metal. Definelty stands out in my kitchen fancing things up.
