We are very satisfied with our Blanco kitchen faucet (Blanco 440618/440616/440619/440617, Finish and color: Satin Nickel). It was easy to install and the quality is what we had hoped it would be (and expected). The only “negative” comment I have is that the design of the outlet/aerator is such that the faucet splashes more when directed onto plates, inside glasses, etc. than what we are accustomed to. This is because it delivers a relatively concentrated and strong stream that tends to “bounce back” as opposed to diffusing when striking a surface. We have not tried using a different aerator. Regulating (reducing) the flow largely eliminates this, but it took a while to get used to. It remains to be seen how the rubber bellows holds up (used to switch between stream and shower mode) – so far we have no issues. We have had several different kitchen faucets over the years (we’ve been in the same home 25+ years) – the Blanco is by far the best we have had.

I love the look of my Blanco faucet in our kitchen. We paired it with a black Blanco Silgranit sink which enhances the faucet's rubberized black head. We are happy with the faucet and its control lever, but the soap dispenser that came with it broke fairly quickly (it no longer pumps, probably a hole or crack in the pump dispenser). There is also a little wear on the faucet's head, so a tiny glimmer of stainless steel is now showing through the black. But everything still looks good and works well. Because of our short timeline on the kitchen, I drove an hour to pick up the faucet in NJ. Everything at Quality Bath went smoothly, got a great bag to tote it home and handed it to our installer the next day.
