Kohler K-596 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great faucet I put this in the small bath with a large sink to bath the dogs, yes dogs, Chihuahuas. and I love it. Wish I had put it in the kitchen as well. It works great, great pull out reaches well, no overspray as in the kitchen. Great height of the faucet to put things or dogs under.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great faucet This faucet looks great and works great. It gives me wonderful control over directing the stream or spray of water and makes cleanup very easy. However, because it is so high above the sink the water splashes a lot on the sides of the sink. I don't think this is a big deal, and the pros certainly out way this one issue. I also suspect that any high-arch faucet would do the same thing. But this is something to take into account when looking for a new faucet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New kitchen faucet! This faucet was installed in a remodeled kitchen with wooden cabinets in a sage green color and a soapstone countertop. I bought the chrome color and it really pops with the green cabinets which have chrome hardware and the charcoal of the soapstone. I like the simplicity and sleekness of the design. It is big and tall, but not clunky. I wanted simple and I got simple. It has a nice big arc and comes out about 1/2 way into my farmhouse sink. It swivels to the left and right easily. The flow is even and steady and the spray is adequate..Even though the design looks modern, this faucet looks great in a vintage design. I also installed a soap dispenser that was suggested on line and it looks nice as well. I would definitely recommend this beautiful faucet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now have two I liked this faucet so much that I purchased another for our second home. It is beautiful in both finishes. The pull out hose pulls in and retracts perfectly. The spray buttons are easy to use and the water stream is ideal. I read a review when I was shopping for the faucet and followed the suggestion of having the handle placed facing the front instead of side, so that it is accessible easily with both hands and did it on both faucets. I have had the first faucet for a year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the Price It's a nice faucet, especially for the price. The handle is smaller than I expected but works well.
