Yet another reason why we recommend this product is that the lever that comes incorporated into this product is designed in such a way that the user could control the water flow very precisely, this feature is not found in any other kitchen faucet of the same price range.
One of the other reasons is that Kraus KPF 1622SN comes with a lifetime warranty, which simply denotes the quality of the product.
