The kitchen faucet is a “work horse”. We use our kitchen faucets so many times throughout the day that it’s hard to keep track. Add more than one person in a household and that number multiplies significantly. So, we expect it to be perfect and when it is not, it is very frustrating!

In doing research, I decided to go with Kallista a higher end product distributed by Ann Sacks. There were a few criteria that I had in mind:

1) Design: I wanted a simple, clean design that would also read traditional bungalow.

2) Finish: I wanted brushed nickel so that it would remain subtle. Not all faucets are available in satin nickel.

3) Function: It’s personal but I didn’t want the sprayer attached. I find that they often fail after time and do not retract.

4) Quality: I wanted high quality but did not want something foreign that would make installation difficult for the plumber. The “guts” of Kallista are actually Kohler and both are made in Michigan.

I love the graceful curve of the faucet. What are you looking for in your new faucet? Remember the above criteria.
