    Trying to decide on good quality kitchen faucet but will not need a bank loan to cover cost....

    From research want a faucet that is made of solid brass
    Cartilage disc
    No plastic separate sprayer

    Considering belle forte bridge faucet (love style but I know there is more than style) Cannot find out anything about their warranty
    Premiere charleston collection
    Price pfister (only because it has a life time warranty on finish n leakage) but are they made of solid brass

    If you presently have any of these faucets installed or install them, please give me your feedback on their durability and reliability. I understand about the love of how it fits into kitchen style, as that is important, but main concern is durability, finish reliability, and co standing behind their warranty. If you have other suggestions than above mentioned, please send info also. Would prefer to stay below $300 if possible.

    Thank you so very much for your help. I have literally spent days trying to find info. Again thank you

    As of last Saturday, you will have a hard time finding a "solid brass" faucet since it will have to be made of "lead free brass" which makes it more expensive and more difficult to manufacture. As of that date, the quality, durability, and longevity of ALL faucets has to be reset, because HOW the previous ones performed is completely irrelevant. NO ONE is even allowed to sell "old stock" faucets to get rid of them. If they have any, they MUST go into the scrap bin.
