Product Overview

The Premier 120333 Essen Single-Handle Commercial-Style Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet brings the style and performance of a professional commercial chef’s kitchen to your own home. It is a high-performance faucet that has many great features, such as the handy pull-down nozzle for extra cleaning power. The pull-down nozzle has multiple settings including rinse, spray, and pause. The pause function allows you to temporarily stop the flow of water in between tasks, encouraging you to preserve water.

This commercial faucet by Premier has a high-quality ceramic disc valve with is protected against leaks and super long-lasting for excellent performance even after years of use. The aerated stream of water is powerful enough to clean tough dishes and has a flow rate of 2.2 gallons per minute, which is above average, meaning extra cleaning power. This kitchen faucet makes it easier than ever to clean dishes, pots, and pans without the extra hassle.

The installation process is super easy and can be completed by one person in less than one hour without the help of a professional. It is best suited for a one-hole configured sink, as it requires only one connection. It can also be adapted using a decking plate, which is included with the purchase! Most one-hole sinks will require you to purchase a deck plate separately, so having a matching one included with the purchase is a great bonus.

The chrome fixture looks best when paired with other chrome appliances and accessories. Chrome is a top choice for modern homes because it is very shiny when polished and has an almost mirror-like reflection. It is a lighter and brighter metal than stainless steel, so it makes the room feel cleaner, brighter, and more modern. There is also a matching soap dispenser for sale from the same company if you want to create a sense of unity in the space with your appliance choices.

Pros

Industrial Kitchen Style

This faucet brings all of the benefits of an industrial kitchen faucet into your own home. It has a super-powerful spray setting, which can be easily switched on from the regular flow with the touch of a button. This is a model of faucet that is built to last. It complies with the standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as the Uniform Plumbing Code. The faucet has a high-arched spout which gives ample room for cleaning large pots and pans. It also has a heavy flow of water, for filling containers or other tasks that require a lot of water fast.

Chrome Finish

Chrome finish is one of the top picks for kitchens in modern homes and restaurants. It has a beautiful shine when polished that is almost as reflective as a mirror. It makes the room feel cleaner and brighter just by being there. The chrome finish used on this model is extremely durable and will not easily fade, scratch, or corrode.

Pull-Down Nozzle w/ Multiple Settings

The nozzle on the faucet is attached to a sturdy metal hose that is both strong and flexible. It easily maneuvers to reach hard to clean spots on your dishes. The settings on the faucet are:

  • Spray: The spray setting is ideal for cutting through tough messes.
  • Rinse: Provides a steady flow of water.
  • Pause: Temporarily stops the flow of water while maintaining temperature and flow.

Ceramic Disc Cartridge

Most modern kitchen faucets use ceramic disc cartridges, which are preferable to other types of cartridges used in the past because they are more long-lasting and prevent more leaks. The ceramic disc cartridge in the faucet spout is high-quality and durable, giving great results for decades.

Hassle-Free Installation

The installation process is super simple and doesn’t require the help of a professional. Simply follow along with the easy to read instruction manual and you can easily get the sink set up yourself in less than an hour. The connections easily integrate with your existing plumbing, and it comes with the necessary components for both one hole and three-hole sinks.

Cons

Uses More Water Than Some Faucets

This is a commercial, industrial style faucet so it does require a little more water power than some other new faucets. It operates at a maximum rate of 2.2 gallons per minute, which is the average for kitchen faucets. So it doesn’t cost you any more water than an average faucet, but it also isn’t a particularly water-saving model either.

Summary

The Premier 120333 Essen Single-Handle Commercial-Style Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet is an amazing kitchen faucet. It has the power, look, and benefits of an industrial-grade commercial faucet used in restaurant kitchens, and is suitable for installation in a variety of different settings. It can be easily adapted for either one hole or three-hole sinks without any additional purchases.

The installation process is also super easy, as it includes everything you need and an easy to follow instruction manual. It doesn’t require the help of a remodeler or plumber to get this sink set up–it is simple enough that even inexperienced home improvers can handle it without the help of a professional.

Having a Premium commercial faucet such as this one in your home has some great benefits. It is made out of sturdy and long-lasting materials and is made for high performance. The disc valve cartridge is high-quality and provides excellent results for decades. It doesn’t require a ton of maintenance to keep this faucet looking beautiful and performing at maximum capacity. Simply wipe down the chrome finish with a clean cloth to prevent the build-up of soap or minerals.
