Savile Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with Soap Dispenser
like the style
The overall look and operation is very good, but what I don't like is the fact that the handle has to be perfectly centered to completely shut off the water. If I'm running hot water and move the handle left to shut it off it continues to run until I pull the handle back to the center position. I've had several single control faucets and used many others and never did I have to locate the temperature center to completely shut off the water. I also find my water left running from other people that use the faucet. I constantly have to remind everyone how to shut the water off.

Our family is happy with this faucet.
Everyone loved the upgrade and the kids were making excuses to use the new faucet. The Venetian bronze finish is attractive and goes well with our sink. The pull down handle is something I've always wanted and I'm glad this faucet has the MagnaTite docking system because I read reviews on other faucets where the docking systems failed and I'd be royally peeved if I purchased a faucet that suffered that failure. I wanted a high arching faucet and while that may have some drawbacks such as more likelihood of splashing, it's easily remedied. The benefit of being able to fill and wash pots and pans easier very much outweighs the drawbacks.
Installation was a breeze. The worst part was getting the old faucet out as the nuts were difficult to loosen and there wasn't much room to work. Once that was out I had this faucet connected and running leak-free in 20 minutes and I had never installed a faucet before. I did have to enlarge the soap dispenser hole with a grinding bit on a drill but that wasn't difficult at all.
The cons are that the handle takes some getting used to finding a position for warm water but I think that's minor and may be fixed setting the faucet handle to the other limited range position but I don't care enough to try that. The soap dispenser is plastic but maybe that's a functional choice, I don't know, if not I'd rather have paid a little more for a metal one. Also the soap dispenser sits a little low off the top of the sink (2.25 inches). It's not a big deal on my sink as it juts out over the sink but depending on how wide your sink top is, it could be. Overall, I think these cons are minor.
Bottom line, everyone loves the look of and performance of this new faucet. Installation was a snap. I could have purchased a cheaper faucet, but I don’t think I’d be as pleased. We’re very happy with this purchase.

Great quality, backed by exceptional customer service
Am completely pleased by this faucet in all respects. A great combination of aesthetics and function, at a reasonable price, considering the quality.
In addition, I think it is important and relevant to mention that I had posted a positive comment (elsewhere) about this faucet, and was pleasantly surprised to have later been contacted by Delta customer service (even though I hadn't requested it). They were proactive and clearly desired to ensure that I was completely satisfied with the product (which I was). The customer service alone is enough to make me a life-long Delta customer: superior quality and service at a competitive price -- what more could one ask for?

The pulldown faucet feature is wonderful
Delta's name, reputation, our prior Delta purchases, the look & features of this model are what prompted us to buy this kitchen faucet. We have been using it almost 4 months & are very pleased with the push button ease of using either spray or stream, & the firm magnetic fit of the hose when retracted into the faucet. The high rise faucet makes cleaning up larger items much easier, & the pull down hose is very convenient for smaller items & washing out the sink. I am becoming more used to being able to fully turn the water off (on the first try), as it must be exactly in the middle position.

Excellent features but doesn't mount in ALL sinks well
We like the features of this faucet. Easy to install except it doesn't mount well when installing in an "under mount" sink which has 2 3/8" mounting hole (it appears most do) as opposed to "top mount sinks" which have a 1 3/8" mounting hole. Our counter top mounting holes had been drilled to 2" so the upper portion of the faucet mounted ok. We had to make a spacer plate to place under our under mount sink so that "Mounting Bracket (RP52609)" would secure properly & not partially slip into the mount hole portion of our sink (a week after our plumber installed the faucet).

Drawbacks of this faucet
I feel the arched spout sits up too high. Wish the spray was
more adjustable. Find it hard to adjust the water temperature.
It is very touchy about getting it just right. Wish the soap dispenser was a little higher. For the money was hoping for something a little more practical. Otherwise the faucet is fine.

Greatest kitchen faucet I could find...and I looked!
The design is great. I love the magnetic holder on the spray head, the ease of changing from a steady stream to a spray, the tension on the sprayer hose, and the the one step, single, faucet handle.
On the negative side: I found the installation instructions to be unclear, especially the first steps when not using the single hole installation. There were just too many parts, and nothing saying that they were not needed! The instructions need to be more clear on how to install the three hole mount and base plate.

This faucet is awsome!
This is without a doubt the most expensive faucet I've ever purchased. I was tired of leaks, loose fittings, and repairs that were needed at the worst possible time. I am absolutely pleased with the quality and performance not to mention the appearance and compliments from others. Well worth it.
