"A superb all-round kitchen faucet, designed to fit into just about any kitchen."
The Kraus KPF-2110 kitchen faucet model is suitable for all kitchens, thanks for its modern design and affordable price tag. It’s now a reduced price of around $99.99 and although it’s at the lower-end of kitchen faucet prices, that’s not to say it’s lower in quality. Kraus are renowned for their durable products, and this kitchen faucet model is no exception. This is a hard-wearing faucet with plenty of sleek features to keep every user happy. It is also ADA compliant and certified by the usual kitchen faucet compliance actions such as CALGreen and FTC for example, so you know it’s a sound faucet and Kraus care about their customers. Although Kraus is one of the newcomers in kitchen faucet manufacturers, you can rest assured the KPF-2110 is supreme in quality.
The construction of the Kraus KPF-2110 is lead-free brass, meaning it is sturdy and has that premium quality to it. This kitchen faucet is 100% solid stainless steel in its finish, meaning it is corrosion and rust-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about the finish diminishing in quality over time. Also, it can come in a satin finish, adding luxurious charm to your kitchen. The KPF-2110 is the type of kitchen faucet that can fit into any kind of kitchen theme and will undoubtedly be a bonus feature. This model of faucet also benefits from a high spout, with a height of 7.5 inches and a reach of 9 inches. This makes it ideal when washing those big pots and pans, and once the washing is done, the faucet itself is straightforward to clean due to its simple yet effective design. The KPF-2110 has a single-handle design making it far easier to control the temperature and the water pressure. The single-handle is the more popular choice when it comes to kitchen faucets because of these two main reasons, so Kraus have done an excellent job in factoring this into the KPF-2110 model. Additionally, the faucet has swivel access up to 120 degrees, so while it does not reach the full 360 degrees as some other brands do, it is still fully-functional in everything you would need it to do, while looking the part too.
The spray head on the KPF-2110 has two functions, normal flow and spray mode. Although this is not as many functions as some people would hope for, Kraus has delivered on the quality of the spray head, and the two features are perfectly versatile for all kitchen uses. The dual-function spray comes in the form of a pull-out sprayer, which is convenient for getting in and out of those hard to reach areas, especially as the hose length is 63 inches.
The pull-out sprayer is exceptionally durable, and this will be one of the first things you notice due to its weight. Although there have been criticisms of the pull-out faucet compared with the pull-down faucet due to being less convenient and more risk of creating more mess, the quality of Kraus’ pull-out sprayer puts it up there with other high-ranked models. It has a retractable hose that is easy to maneuver and is safely operated using a counter-weight. It is worth noting here that you should make sure you have the available space under and around your sink to implement a kitchen faucet like the Kraus KPF-2110 so it can fit into the space provided.
The weight of this kitchen faucet highlights its strength and value, as many other faucet models are made with cheaper plastic material meaning they don’t last as long. The weight of the KPF-2110 is not the only element making it so reliable; it also uses a ceramic cartridge which makes it so much more long-lasting than even some of the best kitchen faucets out there.
The flow rate of the Kraus KPF-2110 is a healthy 1.8 GPM and produces a water consumption rate of 2.2 GPM. The temperature of the water is easy to control, and this Kraus faucet also remembers which mode you it left on last, making daily tasks like washing up so much easier. The rate of flow can be altered through the normal and spray options on the sprayer in a simple effective way using the rubber button. This kitchen faucet model also comes with a high performing low flow neoperl aerator which means this faucet benefits massively from reduced splash, saving water and therefore reducing energy bills and giving more control on the spray stream. This kitchen faucet also has rubber nozzles to make the cleaning easier and limit build-up of materials. These are all extremely valuable elements that make up a decent kitchen faucet. The KPF-2110 doesn’t need to be jam-packed with fancy and technological features to make it a statement feature in your kitchen, especially as it is highly reliable.
The KPF-2110 comes with everything you could need to install it, including the mounting hardware. It is unfortunately only a one-hole installation, but this does make it easier to connect with less confusion. While some customers regard it as one of the easiest installations to do, the more general opinion is that is can prove quite tricky. It does come with instructions, and there are also plenty of installation videos available on this model on kitchen faucet reviews you could look at to help. Installation can be a bit difficult for the novice so if you do get a plumber to install it for you, make sure you factor in this extra cost if you are buying this faucet.
Overall, the Kraus KPF-2110 kitchen faucet is a useful and durable feature to any kitchen and comes in a simple but stylish design, making it optimal for all kitchen themes. It also comes with a limited lifetime warranty on all parts so if something were to go wrong, you know it's covered. It is an excellent price for the quality you get, especially considering it is one of the more popular models of kitchen faucets to buy. Although it could be regarded as slightly basic both in design and through its features, it’s an instrumental, resilient, sleek, affordable and quality model that will stand the test of time.
