You identify the faucets by their single handle that moves over a rounded metal ball that easily shifts and spins thus creating different water flows and temperatures. The ball has chambers and spring loaded rubber seals. The handle rotates easily allowing you an exact mix of hot and cold water. It's good to note that these faucets don't have washers. Due to the many parts in these faucets, they tend to leak more than other washerless faucets such as disc and cartridge.
Your Budget. In case you are not aware, the price tag of a kitchen faucet can range from a couple of hundreds to even a thousand dollar. These modern designs are usually manufactured by renowned brands and their products can be very expensive but you are paying for their exquisite design and quality. Consider the above points before you decide whether you really want to get modern kitchen faucets. They will indeed add on to the overall elegant outlook of your kitchen but you must also think about its durability and convenience for you when you are working in the kitchen.
There are two main types of cartridge faucets: one and two handle faucets. A single handle faucet operates in an up/down motion to adjust water volume and left/right motion to adjust the temperature. From outside, a double handle cartridge faucet is identical to a compression washer faucet. You can tell the difference by noting how the handle feels when used. A compression faucet requires you to tighten down the washer in order to close water flow while a cartridge faucet requires smooth and consistent action to close water flow. When you move the faucet for just ½ turn you are able to move the handle from on to off position.
