Sevile Single Handle Pull-Down Delta Faucet Review

Daddy D and I have been working hard to start to make our new house our home.  This includes big projects, like the start of my new closet, to the little things that make it ours.  Yesterday I showed you how we switched out the kitchen sink to a deeper and more contemporary model.  Today I get to show you the new faucet we put in!

When I was putting together the Our New House Blog Fair I was delighted when Delta Faucet gave me the opportunity to review a faucet of my choosing.  After literally hours of deliberating on their website I finally chose the Savile Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with Soap Dispenser.  
Beautiful, isn’t it?  On to the installation.  If you are contemplating purchasing a Delta faucet for a do-it-yourself project but are wary about what it entails, have no fear!  Delta Faucet has a series of how to videos on YouTube.  We watched the one on single handle kitchen faucet installation prior to receiving our faucet.
When we received our faucet we were ready to go!  This is what it looked like when we opened the box.

Daddy D went to work.  I have a picture of Daddy D installing the faucet laying in the cabinet, but as it was a hot day and Daddy D is shirtless, I am keeping it to myself!  It took him about half an hour from start to finish.   Here are the before and after pictures.
The reasons I chose this model?  I loved the single handle.  Personally, I prefer that to the two handle method.  I like the ease of adjusting the temperature with one hand.  I also like that I can turn it off with a quick flick of the wrist up.  I also like the high arch.  It is easy to fit large pots underneath it.  No more struggling to maneuver a stock pot around at odd angles!  Not only that, the faucet swivels a full 360 degrees, meaning I can swing it way out of the way for anything that I need the sink for.  
My favorite feature of the Savile faucet is the pull-down spout.  You truly need only to pull down on the spout and it extends out of the neck of the faucet becoming the sprayer.  I love this feature!  I love that it keeps all of the features needed to do dishes in the work area of the center of the sink.  No more reaching over to the side to pull out the sprayer, yanking it to where I need it and then turning it on.  In one swoop I can pull down the spout, already on, use it for whatever I need and then easily guide it back to the faucet neck.  With the MagnaTite Docking, a powerful magnet mounted in the spray head that helps it to center and pull it firmly back in place, it makes it very easy to use.
There are two different spray functions for the spout.  One is a more direct spray…
The other is a wider spray…
I like them both for different tasks.  I do wish that the direct spray had a little more oomph behind it for spraying off some of the stuck on food and such.  But overall they are great features.  Not only that,  The lever/button to change the spray function is located right on the spout so that you can change it with your finger while it is in the traditional docked position and when it is pulled out like a sprayer.
I also love that now that I don’t need to use that extra hole in the sink for the sprayer I get to use it for a matching soap dispenser included in the set.  With a house full of little boyz, there is constant hand washing before dinner.  This eliminates the plastic hand soap bottle on the counter, and it isn’t always being toppled in the sink by little hands.  The built in dispenser gives a sleek, clean appearance to our sink area and is very functional.

We love our new faucet!  Be sure to check out and learn more about Delta Faucet on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube
