Rated 5 out of 5 by Cathy This product has all the features that we wanted!
Purchased our Arabella 1 HDL-P-Down Kitchen Faucet w/soap Dispen in November, 2012. We have really enjoyed our new faucet. It's stainless steel finish stays clean and does not get any water spots. Very easy to install.
My husband and I did have to get use to retracting the hose but after using we were able to adjust. This feature may have improved since 2012.
Now in 2016, the magnetic piece broke off and we called Delta and they are shipping a Magnet Replacement Kit out to us and it is included in the KITCHEN FAUCET LIFETIME GUARANTEE! Delta representative, Matt was very helpful and we should have our replacement kit in 7 days. We will continue to use Delta products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happycustomer High Value Product
My wife and I are repeat Delta cusotmers for a couple of reasons: 1) they are superior products at a fair price, and 2) thier customer service is exemplary. When we had problemns with an older, out-of-production kitchen facucet, they honored their warrantee without question and at no cost to us (twice replacing the spout that had corroded due to improper house grounding). The new(er) technology, style and function are a plus. Finally, the installation was a snap. I expect to get years of great service from the faucet and from the company (if needed).

Rated 4 out of 5 by wubbyzzz IT COULD BE BETTER
It seems to be a solid faucet, but there are some design flaws that could be improved upon. It was the easiest faucet I have ever installed. I had to change out my valves to match the faucet inlets, but I wanted to do that anyway. I really liked that it had PEX inlet tubes instead of the copper. PEX is more flexible and IMO more durable. If you pull out the sprayer all the way sometimes the hose kinks and obstructs the flow of water. The hose could be a little longer IMO. The hose does not retract easily. I have to thread the hose back into the faucet every time even though there is a weight to assist. The reason I got this faucet is because of the diamond/ceramic valve disk, if this lasts as long as they say it should I'll be happy. The water does surge when running the faucet, but that does not bother me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pallius I love this faucet
Beautiful to look at, sturdy and solidly built, easy to install, and highly functional. It takes a little use to find out how to get the temperature of water you want and you need to learn how to avoid splash if you are new to single handle and high nozzles. I replaced a very low handle/faucet and now that we are used to it, everyone in the house loves the new Delta. The pull-down head is everyone's favorite feature. It always goes exactly back in place. The design is superb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Linker Beautiful and easy to install
We purchased this faucet 2 years ago to go with our remodeled kitchen. The faucet was easy to install. The look of the faucet is sleek and looks great with our stainless steel appliances and new granite. The ONLY disappointment is when the faucet is used for a lot of hand washing or just a lot of usage, is that after you wash your hands (your hands will be wet) when you turn off the faucet your wet hands will drip on to the counter underneath the handle. This has been a problem with us because it dulls the granite and it looks messy because of the puddle. The only remedy is to dry your hands before turning off (which means you would have to waste a lot of water) or to leave a small towel underneath handle at all times. If we had to do it again we would still purchase Delta, but we would go with the touchless faucet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ranchwoman Gorgeous and functional
I purchased this for a barn laundry sink.I wanted the high arched faucet and the pulldown feature.I have all Delta faucets in our house except for those on an antique tub and pedestal sink.My Victorian kitchen faucet is still going strong and looks like new after several years.The only complaint that I had was,I thought the funnel for the soap dispenser was included in the box,and like another interview writer,found that it was not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sarah29 Excellent choice in pull down faucets
We've had our Arabella for over a year and love it! I had no idea how much a person needs the pull down flexible hose with adjustable spray at the touch of a button.
This faucet has been a dream. We chose this model for its classic yet stylish design, and the Delta name. And, have no regrets. In fact, we will be installing a duplicate faucet in our RV as well.
I recommend this to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gjfitzy I have a 3 year old model 989 that needed a simple part replaced..
I simply called Delta Customer Service to order a replacement magnet for my 3 year old 989. The CS rep told me they will replace the entire faucet with the model of my choice....This is unbelieveable..... this is Customer Service at its finest... I will continue to purchase delta products as long as I live and pass this on to everyone I know..
