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.
Just like the most modern kitchen faucets, disc faucets have a single handle that controls temperature and water flow. These faucets function through the use of two discs within the valve that open and close in order to control the flow of hot and cold water. To control the water temperature you should do so using the side-to-side rotation of the handle. The cool thing with disc faucets is that they are of high quality and very reliable. Since they don't have many parts they don't leak a lot.
