I have a small mid century house that I am try to keep in it's original state. The kitchen is small and I've never had a place for a dishwasher. For years I have used many dish washing gadgets all of them leaked dish soap and were not practical. My new Dishmaster faucet is perfect for what I needed. Works well, looks great, and wasn't too terribly hard to install. I was apprehensive at first about spending that much money on one but now I am glad that I did. I love it.
Nice look, but I did not expect that the body and the knobs on such an expensive faucet to be plastic! Really, you couldn't make this in chrome? So disappointing.
Things are not made of chrome. Chrome is a technique of electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto an object. Your faucet is chrome plated. The plastic is ABS and has been proven durable for over 43-years. It is made this way for the same reason your car has plastic bumpers and panels, it will not rust or become pitted and greatly reduces weight and cost.
A really great addition to our time capsule 1949 kitchen and a pleasure to use. I gave four stars because the instructions were a bit confusing, also the optional spray head has a nice click when you turn it, a detail Steve Jobs would love!
We love our new Dishmaster Imperial Four! Could use some minor improvements in design, but, all-in-all, does a great job and is fun to use. Thank you for keeping a very cool piece of kitchen history alive so that we could make our 1950 Kitchen look even cooler.
Works well, love the design. We are very happy with this product! Easy to install.
