Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the money but poor flow "This faucet is great for the money. It is well built and compares well to my Hansgrohe faucet which costs more. With the touch of the toggle switch, it goes from normal mode to spray mode and STAYS in that mode until you toggle it back. That's great when you want to wash vegetables. My only gripe is that it has a flow limiter that limits the flow too much for my taste. I really don't like big brother telling me how much water I should be using."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kitchen Faucet Ordered this faucet as DYI project to mount in our new sink and counter project. Order came very quick. Faucet comes with pre-connected water supply hoses. (Would rather Kohler have option to supply your own water lines) The hoses would normally be just the right length. However in my case the water supply valves are mounted in bottom of my cabinet and the hot water valve connection is horizontal in-lieu of upright. I had to get a supply line extension hose in order to attach the 30" pre-connected supply lines of the faucet to my water valves. Other than that the faucet installation was simple. Love the spray hose feature and the switch is not dependant on water pressure to maintain spray or normal water flow. Would highly recommend this faucet. Just be prepared to get extension hose if your valves are farther than 30" from your countertop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too sexy for my faucet I ordered the K-597 Kholer kitchen faucet thinking my old faucet was broken, but it was just loose. When this came in the mail just two days later I just wanted to "take a peek". Is it possible for a faucet 2 B sexy? I love the sleek lines and the finish of the Stainless Steel. I love that this one is metal - it feels substantial in my hands. The hardest part was taking the old faucet out!! The new Kholer was easy to install and I love the pull out nozzle. No weird tools needed, just a wrench and a phillips screwdriver. I'm keeping this faucet!! Now I need new counter tops and a new back splash to go with my new sexy faucet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Faucet! I debated between this faucet and its sibling which is a little larger and I'm glad I got this one. It was installed last week and I love it. Pros: Easy operation. Pull-out has ball joint that makes it easy to spray around sink without actually pulling out. When select spray or stream, it remembers - I use spray most of the time and some faucets always revert to stream. Pause feature on faucet head - can temporarily turn off water, move to fill pot, etc. without turning the off at sink Great water pressure This was delivered at the time promised - thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This is the perfect faucet for my kitchen, not too tall, not too short. I love the fact that when you shut it off in the spray mode, it stays in that mode when you turn it back on. It's a great stream of water in both spray and regular. Also, the black is a nice satin finish that doesn't chip and the faucet swings very smoothly. The pull-out/retraction doesn't get caught up and is a great feature. Purchasing from Faucet Direct was great because they answered my pre-purchase questions immediately. Fast shipping was included!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kohler K-597 (Faucet): Bar Single Handle I recently had this product installed by a plumber. I love this faucet and would strongly recommend it. I like the clean and modern look that it has and I especially love the spout pull out feature. It's very versatile and convenient. I use it after every dish washing to wash down the sink. I have an undermounted sink, so the flexibility of the spout helps me wash closely around the sink. The feature to change the water flow is also wonderful. I use that often too. This faucet looks awesome in my new kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my faucet Checked out other faucets and have been on the hunt for at least 2 years for replacement. Revamping an older kitchen and wanted to upgrade without breaking the bank. Sink was ready to be replaced and wanted stainless. Read all reviews, pros and cons. Purchased the faucet in Chrome finish and it looks great on the new stainless double bowl sink. Only had 1 minor problem with water flow and that turned out to be at the inlet and not the faucet. Contacted Kohler when water flow problem occurred and couldn't ask for better support. Purchase faucet from Faucet Direct and they came through with flying colors. Got the new faucet in 2 days!
