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.
