Do you know what’s common to all these actions (apart from water, obviously)? Indeed, a faucet!
For most of the activities you do in your kitchen, a faucet is indispensable.
A good one will let you do your thing without any water-related hindrances, but a bad one will ensure you never leave square one. Worst case scenario, it can flood your kitchen, resulting in thousands of dollars worth of damage.
To ensure your faucet delivers water reliably, doesn’t act up, looks stylish and has a ton of features, consider buying the next one from Vigo.
Why? Well, you’re about to find out in this review.
Vigo classifies its faucets into two broad categories, namely pulldown and pullout kitchen faucets. Thirty-seven faucets are available in the pulldown style, and nine of them are available in the pullout style.
The faucets are available in five finishes, namely, Chrome, Matte Black, Stainless Steel, Matte Black, and Stainless Steel and Antique Rubbed Bronze (though only one is available in that last finish).
All the faucets have a set flow rate of 1.8 gallons per minute, which is excellent as it is slightly higher than the usual 1.5 gallons per minute we’ve seen in most of the other models. However, it is a double-edged sword, as a higher flow rate means higher water consumption.
Amazingly, almost all of Vigo’s spouts swivel a full 360 degrees, with only three of them swiveling to 180 degrees (or half a turn).
As many as 16 of Vigo’s faucets come with an included soap dispenser.
Now, on to three of Vigo’s finest.

Edison Kitchen Sink Faucet
The first item on our list is the Edison Model by Vigo. It is available either with or without a deck plate. You can also get it either with or without a soap dispenser.
The style remains the same, i.e. a classic, industrial-looking high-arc style. It is available in four colors, namely chrome, matte black, stainless steel, and a combination of matte black and stainless steel.
This product features a classic pull-forward single-handle design, and in our opinion, this setup works best as it minimizes complexity, though some will find it too spartan. It also moves 90 degrees forward for a reduced backsplash.
The pull-down spray head pulls down (duh, obviously!) up to 30 inches and has two spray modes; a gentle aerated spray and a powerful spray.
It also comes with leak and drip protection, so you’ll worry less about a leaky faucet as it’ll dispense water only when you want to.
The Edison’s construction is indeed something to write home about. Vigo claims that it is made of commercial-grade brass and seven layers of protective coating, and it certainly shows for it. This is a beautiful, sturdy faucet and we love it.
- Available in four colors
- Hose has two spray modes for convenience
- Handle moves 90 degrees to prevent splash
- Comes with leak and drip protection
- Some may find utilitarian design too basic
- Some users have reported issues with the fittings
Greenwich Kitchen Faucet
The second item on our list is the Greenwich Faucet. It is an elegant faucet, and if you find the Edison too industrial, perhaps this one will suit your fancy.
It is available in a single high-arc design and three styles, namely matte black, stainless steel, and chrome. The Greenwich comes with a ton of features which you wouldn’t expect given its slender appearance.
Starting the list of features is the Greenwich’s spout, which comes with two spray modes just like the Edison (a gentle aerated spray and a powerful spray). The hose extends to 25 inches which is slightly shorter than Edison’s 30-inch length, but we doubt that’ll be an issue.
The Greenwich swivels 360 degrees, which means it can complete one full turn without any problems.
It comes with a clip which pulls the wand into place and locks it securely, hence eliminates hassling with the wand and trying to lock into place.
The model also comes with Vigo’s leak and drip protection technology for peace of mind.
The Greenwich is constructed of the same industrial-grade brass, and this commitment to quality is what Vigo is known for. You get seven layers of protective coating and is resistant to corrosion, meaning your trusty faucet won’t go rusty for a long time!
- Faucet swivels for one full turn
- Hose extends to 25 inches and clips into place
- Two spray modes for convenience
- Solid construction and beautiful finish
- Hose length could’ve been greater
- Not as sturdy as the Edison
Weston Kitchen Sink Faucet
The fashionista of the range, the Vigo Weston is, in our opinion, the best-looking faucet by this company.
It comes in a single arc style, and there are no colors to choose from (it comes in a chrome finish), but honestly, we aren’t complaining. The Weston looks gorgeous with its modern design and would complement any modern kitchen setup.
Unfortunately, what this faucet gains in style and design, it loses in lack of features.
It comes with a 30-inch extendable hose, a drip and leak guard and 360-degree swivel capability. But, it does not come with switchable spray modes, a clip to lock the hose in place, a deck plate, a soap dispenser or a movable handle.
Simply put, the Weston is great if you’re in the market for a stylish faucet which will serve well and you aren’t looking for a lot of features.
- Comes with a 30-inch extendable hose
- Swivels for one full turn
- Comes with a leak and drip guard
- Looks absolutely beautiful
- Misses out on some features
- No style or color options to choose from
If you’re looking for a faucet to replace the current one and need one which is stylish and will last a long time without giving you any trouble, Vigo is the way to go. Plus, all their products come with adequate certification, meaning they comply with all safety and ecological standards.
