Product Overview

The Delta Faucet Kate Single-Handle Kitchen Sink Faucet with Pull Down Sprayer is a classic stainless steel kitchen faucet that comes with a few new advancements such as the super-responsive pulldown retractable nozzle/sprayer. It has sensitive reflexes that respond well to your every touch and when you’re done it snaps back into place with the rest of the faucet. You will love using the spray nozzle because it makes it so easy to clean hard to reach or problem spots on your dishes. The sprayer is held in place by a powerful magnet.

It is made out of high-quality stainless steel that is resistant to spots, scratches, and fingerprints. Stainless steel is the best material to make kitchen appliances out of because it is very hygienic. Germs, soap, and grime will not stick to the surface of stainless steel, and instead can be easily wiped away. It is a very clean material and it looks clean as well! It is resistant to most types of unsightly blemishes. Even with constant heavy usage this faucet will not easily wear or tear.

It is super to install and made out of quality materials that are meant to last a long time. It takes only minutes to fully install the faucet and it will last for years, outliving many other kitchen appliances. It is leak-sealed which prevents damage. Leak-free operation is guaranteed for the entire lifespan of the faucet. There is a lifetime warranty on all of the parts so you can rest assured that the product is of the guaranteed quality.

Pros

  • Soap Dispenser

It has a built-in soap dispenser that is refillable. Having bars of soap or even liquid soap bottles sitting around the kitchen counter not only junks up the place visually, but can create the perfect environment for germs and mildew to grow. The stainless steel soap dispenser is super easy to refill and clean.

Make sure to use the right kind of soap for the best results, but almost all dish soaps and hand soaps are suitable. You can easily refill the dispenser with your favorite scented soaps. The dispenser is a cleaner solution to storing soap in a convenient location to the sink.

  • Easy to Clean

You won’t need any type of fancy soaps or long soaks to get this sink clean. Even a swipe of a finger is effective enough to wipe away most grime, calcium, and dirt. Stainless steel is the best material for kitchen appliances because of how easy to clean it is. Having a clean sink is very important to ensure that you’re not transferring germs back onto clean dishes or clean hands.

  • Simple Installation

The kitchen faucet/soap dispenser set is appropriate for both two and three-hole setups. It’s very uncomplicated to install and comes with easy to follow instructions. It shouldn’t require any messy remodeling or expensive tools to install the faucet. It takes only moments to correctly place the soap dispenser and faucet and once installed you can be sure that this faucet will last you a long time.

  • Leak-Free Guarantee

Perhaps one of the best things about this kitchen faucet set is that it comes with a lifetime warranty that protects against not only factory parts defects, but also any kind of leaks. Nobody likes a leaky faucet, and it is a common problem with even high-quality faucet models, but Delta, an industry leader among kitchen faucet brands, guarantees lifetime leak-free performance on their products!

  • Sleek Clean Appearance

It is a simple uncomplicated design with gently sloping curves. The design of the faucet will not distract from the decor of your kitchen but instead enhance it. The look of the spotless metal will make your kitchen space look clean…even if it’s not. The spout is between 14 and 15 inches tall. It works best with a three-hole set up as the faucet, soap dispenser, and handle are all separate, but it can also work with a two-hole setup.

Cons

  • Not Hands-Free

Some newer models of kitchen faucets have built-in sensors that turn the sink off and on with only the movement of the hand, but this faucet has only a traditional handle and is not one of the Delta touch kitchen faucets. To prevent the spread of germs and disease you should be sure to clean the handle and soap dispenser regularly.

Summary

The Delta Faucet Kate Single-Handle Kitchen Sink Faucet with Pull Down Sprayer is a simple, elegant, and functional faucet. It has one single handle that is easy to control the flow and temperature. The installation process is simple and is suitable for two or three-hole setups. It is made out of high-quality spotless stainless steel that is easily cleaned with the swipe of a finger. It doesn’t require a ton of cleaning or fancy products to keep it looking nice. It is naturally resistant to germs, scratches, and other blemishes.

The nozzle has a powerful sprayer attached by a magnet that you can pull down and move 360 degrees to clean hard to reach spots and problem areas. It’s uncomplicated to use, effective at cleaning, and made out of high-quality materials. It comes with a factory warranty that protects against leaks for a lifetime.
