If you’re on the hunt for the best kitchen faucet, consider how well the Grohe 32665001 could fit into your kitchen.
The Grohe 32665001 has a versatile style. It is a traditional gooseneck design and is sophisticated and minimalistic, with an overall modern look. It would suit any kitchen which is a rare feature for kitchen faucets. It also does not lose its status as a top-quality kitchen faucet because of this versatility. The 32665001 comes in only two finishes which some may see as a disadvantage, however the finishes really don’t leave much to desire. On the one hand you could opt for a simple silver design, but alternatively, you could choose StarLight chrome. StarLight is Grohe’s patented technology which, using innovative manufacturing techniques, creates a harder, more immaculate finish. This finish is also tarnish, corrosion and scratch resistant which not even some of the best kitchen faucets can claim. The spout on the Grohe 32665001 is a good 16 inches tall, which not only fits under most over-the-sink cupboards but also allows plenty of room underneath for larger dishes. The spout can also swivel a full 360 degrees which allows for great reach and is especially beneficial for kitchens with an island, as you wouldn’t necessarily need to reach round to the sink in order to be able to use the faucet. The Grohe 32665001 is a pull-down kitchen faucet with a single lever. Single levers are great because they have temperature memory, saving you time trying to find the right temperature every time you use it.
The sprayer on the Grohe 32665001 is impressive. It fits seamlessly into the central spout, you wouldn’t even know it was there if you didn’t look closely. A gentle pull reveals a flexible hose which allows you to access hard to reach areas on your dishes. When you have finished using it, it is easy to return the sprayer to its original position. Grohe have taken what other manufacturers present in a complicated, over-the-top way and made it seem like a straight-forward effortless function. The spray on the 32665001 even has a flow toggle that locks in place, allowing you to use both hands regardless of the stream you have chosen. Some users have noticed that you can transfer easily between a stream to a spray, however to change back you have to switch the water off completely. This can’t be described as a big inconvenience, especially considering the temperature memory of the lever, but it is an inconvenience none the less.
The overall water flow of the Grohe 32665001 is a generous 1.75 gallons per minute, which gives plenty of cleaning power. The spray head offers two different levels of water flow which is an important feature to look out for in any kitchen faucet review. You can choose between a simple aerated stream or a more powerful spray to tackle tougher dirt. The aerated stream is designed not only to eliminate splashing but also as a way of reducing water wastage whilst not sacrificing any power. Its also nice to know you’re helping the environment even when you’re just washing dishes. Grohe have even thought to use their innovative SilkMove technology in order to create a smoothly operating lever. This means that thanks to a ceramic cartridge, the water flow can be altered without any jarring actions, even with wet hands. Not many kitchen faucets have this feature. Some users have noticed that the Grohe 32665001 can splash, however this is often only found when it is being used in smaller sinks which is not recommended. The 32665001 also has an optional integrated flow restrictor if you do find this to be a problem. There is no MotionSense or touch control technology in the Grohe 32665001 however, for a lower priced kitchen faucet it easily covers all the fundamental bases.
The installation has been designed to be really easy for the Grohe 32665001, Grohe have even thought to design a very user-friendly instruction manual to help with it. It is single point installation which is the simplest form, however unlike some other kitchen faucets, it does not have an option of attaching a base plate for those countertops with 3-hole construction. Due to the simplicity of the 32665001’s design however, it would be easy to find a base plate to match if you needed to. This top-quality kitchen faucet has a solid brass construction which not only makes it durable and long-lasting but also makes it environmentally safe to use as it eliminates lead from the composition. The Grohe 32665001 meets all the safety regulations, and Grohe offer a lifetime guarantee which provides all the reassurance you could need that this is a high-quality kitchen faucet.
Considering it is such an affordable price, the Grohe 32665001 is one of the best value kitchen faucets on the market. There are a couple of areas which don’t cause significant problems but could still be revised by Grohe such as the spray function toggle, however there are also plenty of great features. The 32665001 has a seamless pull-down sprayer giving it style and versatility and Grohe’s SilkMove technology in the lever which ensures a smooth water flow. This kitchen faucet also has a solid brass construction, making it very safe to use and a re-assuring lifetime guarantee, which all make the Grohe 32665001 a serious front-runner in the race for the best kitchen faucet.
