Classic Single Handle Kitchen Faucet with Integral Spray
Nice faucet but very poor water flow
The faucet was a breeze to install unlike my older (8 years old) Delta faucet.
I like the idea of the PEX water lines and snap-in spray adapter.
However, the water flow is horrible. It is less than half of my previous Delta faucet which makes it hard to wash dishes (yes, some of us do not have dishwashers).
It also "moans" during operation.
The box should have been clearly marked as "water saver". If it had been, I never would have bought it.
I don't understand this idea of "water saving". I still have to fill up my sink to wash dishes - it just takes twice as long.
And rinsing dishes takes longer at the reduced water flow.

Nice features, installation could be made easier
This faucet is all plastic, so the initial concern was breaking something or damaging the finish. To securely install the faucet from sliding around at the base, a rubber washer (not provided) was added between the underside of the sink and nut, and clear silicone sealer (not provided) was added to the plastic gasket between the sink and faucet base. The plastic cold and hot water supply hoses are flexible and did not need to cut to a new length (a wide U-shaped bend worked fine). The installation was solid, no leaks, water flow is easy to control and quiet, the integral sprayer is a plus, and the finish appears durable.
Overall, a nice faucet for a change in decor without a high cost. The fact that it is all plastic should not be a significant concern.

A great faucet at a great price.
I needed a replacement for my old kitchen faucet which had started falling apart. Instead of repairing it I decided to look for a better replacement. I choose the 300-DST because of it's good looks and the high rise of the faucet. The spray head was also a selling point. It has been in use for 2 years now and has not leaked and the chrome finish is still bright and shiny. I would definitely recommend this kitchen faucet to anyone searching for a reliable and good looking addition to their kitchen.
