Rated 4 out of 5 by from simple design and functions well i got this in ORB, which provides the modern lines with some retro feel that goes perfectly in the updated arts and crafts home. it functions very well. only minor issue is that the temperature control is very sensitive to minor changes to the handle movement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta Esque Faucet I've recommended this faucet for purchase before and will continue to do so. It is absolutely the perfect piece for a stylish minimalist look in the kitchen. Although this faucet is considered a Bar/Prep faucet, it looks perfect at a single basin kitchen sink. My clients love this selection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addicting Faucet!!! I got this faucet because it looks awesome!!! Had no idea how addictive the the touch feature would be. Now I am disappointed when I go to every other faucet in the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice I looked at faucets online for days. Finally chose this one and I couldn’t be happier. The black is the perfect match to my new black granite composite sink and the faucet is beautiful. The water pressure is amazing. I highly recommend this Delta product.
