There’s nothing worse than a finicky faucet. Faucets are temperamental home appliances that many people just put up with because it’s easier than replacing it wholesale. If you’ve got a leaky faucet, you know that the persistent drip-drip-drip noise is enough to drive even the sanest parent mad. Even if your faucet isn’t leaky, it could have other issues. Maybe your faucet has such low water pressure that the water drizzles from the faucet to your dishes, which doesn’t make for the most effective cleaning. You could also have a faulty nozzle hose that’s frequently on the fritz. For some reason, even the plumber hasn’t been able to come up with more than a temporary solution to your problems.
If one of these scenarios describes you and your situation, it’s time to go shopping for a new faucet. Trying to find a good faucet for your home can be intimidating. There are so many to choose from, and they all look relatively the same. Every faucet has a sleek, modern design nowadays. But how can you tell the faucets that actually work from the ones that don’t?
That’s where we come in. We’ve found the best kitchen faucets that might end your kitchen nightmares. We picked faucets that should be easy to install and that are well-designed and reliable. If it says it has two different spraying settings in the hose, both of those settings should work. One of our picks even has a sensor, so you can just wave your hand in front of the sensor to start your faucet.
