Finish and Material. Kitchen faucets were made in chrome finishes for years. Today, however, different other finishing materials are used for the same. This includes bronze, nickel and stainless steel finishes for unique and impressive appearances. When choosing the finish, consider the durability. For instance PVD finishes are resistant to corrosion and scratching and offer surfaces that clean as good as new for many years. The inner construction is usually of brass metal. There are tubular and cast brass options with the cast being thicker and stronger, but both are equally good. The valves and how they are coated can determine their functionality, especially when handling hot and cold controls. Therefore, water temperature is also an important factor when you go shopping.
The Delta Leland 9178-SS-DST has a single pull down faucet handle for the kitchen. It is a high faucet head that allows you to get things under it for easy filling. It also has a nice feature of being able to swivel 360 degrees. Equipped with a 20 inch spray hose that lets you wash large kitchen pots with ease. You can have a spray mode or a stream by pushing a button. You can control the water temperature and its flow with a leaver. Most customers found this kitchen faucet to be of good quality.
Families with young children find the touch function extremely useful. It makes the water easier available for the little ones since they just need to tap the spout rather than reach the handle and manipulate it into the desired position. They will seldom leave the water running. Children love to tap the water off just for fun. But even if they forget, the water will be turned off automatically after some time of inactivity. I am not speaking here of the quality and longevity. In today's faucets, they are self-evident. The rubber washer systems have been replaced with ceramic valve cartridges. These cartridges are durable, the seal is tight and the faucets have lifelong warranties for leak-free performance. This may not be true, however, for some low-end items without brand names.
