Product Technologies / Benefits:

  • Starlight Finish: Continuously improving over the last 70 years Grohe’s unique plating process has been refined to produce and immaculate shiny surface that is recognized as one of the best surface finishes the world over. Grohe plates sub layers of copper and/or nickel to ensure that a completely non-porous, immaculate surface awaits the chrome layer. This deep, even layered chrome surface creates a luminous and mirror like sheen. Grohe finishes are life tested to withstand 60,000 “wipes” with an abrasive cloth.

As you change the temperature from hot to cold, one ceramic disc glides effortlessly across the other with absolute precision. These cartridges are manufactured in a high-tech process and feature discs made from a space-proven ceramic alloy. The SilkMove cartridge is yet another example of design and technology fusing to bring you an enhanced water experience.

Product Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design flaws This faucet unfortunately has several design flaws. I really wish I had seen it in a showroom with real running water before purchasing. (1) The water comes out in a very straight stream that splashes all over. For some reason I think the Grohe designers liked the look of a smooth column of water (it is pretty I suppose). But this is not practical because it splashes a lot. If you put a spoon into the stream at the wrong angle, you can get a real mess. I think it was a mistake to get rid of the old fashioned aerator, which has been used for years to prevent splashing. (2) The button for switching to spray is ergonomically in a very bad location, being right in front on the end of the faucet. When I grab the faucet to move it left or right, that?s exactly where my thumb lands, causing me to inadvertently switch to spray. Then the only way to switch back to regular flow is to turn the water off and on again. Very annoying! (3) The way the on-off lever is constructed, there is a deep, narrow crevice that will certainly accumulate gunk and be very hard to clean. (4) The on-off lever is difficult to control for small changes in water flow. Also, anyone considering buying this faucet should see it in person first. I bought it based on online photos and was really surprised by how large it is. It really looms over the sink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design The water shoots out of a tiny opening and the force causes it to spray all over as soon as it touches anything. Also very difficult to get the spray head back into the faucet; you must push it back and carefully turn it until it fully clicks in to position.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ladylux3 Kitchen Faucet Looks great and love the sprayer. It does splash a bit when faucet is on full force (I think this is due to the fact that it is so high). The height is great though for big items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best faucet This is the best kitchen faucet I have ever used. It has beautiful laminar flow and with the touch of a button it is a spray head. Beautiful lines, easy to clean. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Kitchen Faucet I found. This faucet is not only beautiful but functions perfectly. I am so happy that I bought this one. I would definately recommend it.
Date published: 2011-05-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from best purchase I absolutely love this faucet! The asthetics and function are superb! The water flow is strong and effective...less spraying occurs when I pull the spout out closer to the bottom of the sink. Just remember to turn on the water slowly, not at full throddle. The sleek contempary design makes it extremely easy to clean. The only change I would suggest would be to offer a lower height on the faucet. Money worth spent!
