In response to Airgap could be plumbing code in your jurisdiction.
As of 5 years ago, our county no longer required an airgap (and the dishwasher didn't, either) but our city (inside of the county) did. Check your local code before removing that airgap.

I did not worry about the airgap when we bought our new dishwasher, I just got what I wanted. The installer was able to accommodate the airgap with no problem. Before that, we replaced the old faucet with a single-handle faucet with a sprayer. I didn't worry about the airgap then, either. No problems.

Our airgap is a separate hole on the corner of the faucet deck. It doesn't seem to affect any choices of models. I hope this helps.
