I have the Mateo kitchen faucet in Artic Stainless. I want to get a matching disposal switch/button and would like to know of artic is the same finish as polished chrome? I’ve searched dozens and dozens of switches and none come in “artic”.
Thank you for your question. Arctic Stainless is a brushed finish like Stainless Steel. Over the years, the color of stainless steel used on appliances and sinks has migrated from warmer tones, with more red in the color spectrum, to lighter tones where blue is more predominant. Arctic Stainless features cooler metallic tones, following a trend seen throughout the kitchen.

how do you clean the spray assembly
Is there a way to clean, my older sinks I just unscrew the screen holder and clean it. I don't see how to do it for this faucet.
Thank you for your inquiry! We recommend soaking the wand/sprayer assembly in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water for about 15 minutes.

Where is it made?
Where is the faucet manufactured(machined & finished)?
Is it a solid brass core?
Hi JR, Thank you for your question!
Our faucets are manufactured here in the United States. The model 9183T-DST has a mixture of metallic and non metallic parts. The spout body is metal.

Can the handle be oriented to the front?
My wife is left handed, I am right handed. We prefer to have the control handle facing the front of the sink, rather than to the right or left. Can the Mateo be installed in that manner, and still allow the spout to be rotated to either sink? I need to specify my faucet choice to my builder within the next couple of days, so I am hoping for a prompt response.
Thank you for your question. This unit is designed for the handle to be installed on the right due to the handle rotation (straight up for cold, forward for hot).
