Franke FF20650 Bernadine Single-Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet
The Bernadine comes with an 18 inches pullout nylon hose and a 360 degrees swivel spout that allows widespread coverage. It is a beautiful stainless steel faucet with a modern lever handle that allows 10-90 handle movements for an easy grip and better cleaning.
The spectacular dual-function spray head of the faucet allows you to switch between a full spray and a needle spray that cuts through the toughest of stains within no time. This ensures a perfect cleaning experience and gets the job done in the blink of an eye!
A quick cleaning system also prevents wastage of water, and thanks to the 1.75 GPM flow rate, you can rest assured that this faucet will efficiently clean all your dishes putting every drop to good use.
However, what we think is the winning feature of this product is the brand’s patented Fast-IN Quick Install System that lets you easily install the faucet from above the countertop using only a few tools. This hassle-free procedure for installation makes Bernadine a highly-sought after model from the brand!
The only issue that you could have with this is that there are no prominent markers for hot and cold temperatures, but that is hardly a deal breaker as you can expect to get used to the mechanism after just a couple of washes.
- Stunningly beautiful finish and design
- Water-conserving mechanism
- Easily switchable between a stream and a jet
- Incredibly easy “above the counter” installation
- No temperature indicator
Franke FF20380 Rigo Single-Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet
This Rigo is a marvelously designed pull-down kitchen faucet done in a polished satin nickel finish that stuns every eye! Underneath this fantastic finish, the product boasts a formidable heavy-duty ceramic cartridge that makes it exceptionally long-lasting and leak-proof.
The sprayer of this faucet delivers a 1.75 GPM flow rate in order to maintain strong water pressure, meeting the requirements for most local codes. It allows you to smoothly switch between a sharp jet and clean stream that scours even the most stubborn food stains right off the dishes and plates, without reducing the flow of water.
The retractable nylon pull-hose coupled with the 360-degree swivel spout feature could be smoothly maneuvered to clean even the hardest to reach areas of the sink. Also, the high-arching faucet design provides enough space for a lot of utensils and crockeries to be washed at one go.
This Franke faucet comes with a unique and intuitive “one-click” water-conserving feature that saves up to 50% of water for daily kitchen chores.
What more can you expect a faucet to bring to the kitchen table when it’s already saving your water while giving you the cleanest of dishes?
- Brilliant designs and structural cohesion
- Exceedingly sophisticated and functional features
- Amazing water-conserving feature
- Pretty easy to install
- The plastic housing for the pull-head could get loose and come-off with time
Franke Fuji FFPD20400 Single-Handle Pull-Down Commercial Kitchen Faucet
This model from Franke’s range of commercial kitchen pull-down faucets comes in a polished chrome finish that looks simply dazzling in any kind of kitchen decor. The Fuji stands at a height of 20 inches which makes it perfect for commercial houses and large-scale cleaning.
This works similar to the Rigo model from the brand that we just previously reviewed, and comes equipped with all the features that the other model has. This includes a 360 swivel spout attached to the sprayer which delivers a steady stream of 1.75 GPM as well as sharp needle jet.
Similar to the Rigo, this model too features a “one-click” water-conserving lock in its lever handle that cuts down 50% water loss on a regular basis. The second lock restores the flow to its maximum capacity.
What we liked the most about this model is the versatility of its design that combines a traditional layout with a more modern approach for large-scale use. It could easily clean up a ton of dishes and utensils of varying sizes in a jiffy owing to all the space it provides. The minimalist design not only looks nice but serves to be the most functional aspect of the item as well.
- Elegant design complements all sorts of kitchen space and decor
- Intuitive water-saving feature
- Easy to install
- Ideal for commercial purposes
- The spray head is made of plastic which some may not like as much as they would prefer a fully metal one
