Product Review: Kohler K-780-VS Cruette Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet
Price Range: $150 – $200
Finish Choices: Vibrant Stainless, Polished Chrome, Oil-Rubbed Bronze.
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a stylishly modern, entry-level single-handle kitchen faucet backed by an excellent warranty.
- Easy Installation: Your purchase comes with all the necessary hardware for installing the faucet along with detailed instructions. Included is an escutcheon cover plate for 3 hole counter tops. You’ll need a Philips screwdriver to complete the installation. The faucet handle can be installed either at the side or at the front to meet your personal preference.
- The Cruette faucet has a bold, modern look with graceful lines. This faucet looks the part in any traditional styled kitchen. With three beautiful finishes to choose from, you’re sure to find one which matches your kitchen perfectly.
- Its solid metal construction gives this faucet the durability to last for years. Kohler boasts their finishes are resistant to corrosion and tarnishing. To back up this bold claim, they’ve given the faucet a lifetime limited warranty for your peace of mind.
- With its single lever handle design, using the faucet is a doddle. Simply, pull the lever gently to the side to release water or move it back or forwards to switch between cold and hot water.
- The high-arch gooseneck spout provides a good spout reach of 7-7/8 inches so you can fit big pots and pans under it without problem. This along with 360-degree rotation provides full flexibility.
- The pull-down spout features a multifunctional sprayhead which along with standard spray provides a sweep spray feature which delivers a wide rain-like spray that is ideal for cleaning dishes plus a pause feature when you need to temporarily stop the water flow.
- Innovative technologies ensure practical and easy operation. The excellent DockNetik™ magnetic docking system automatically retracts and locks the sprayhead securely into position to prevent any unwanted dangling. ProMotion™ technology is utilized which uses a long braided nylon hose and swivelling ball joint to ensure smooth & quiet movement every time you pull down the sprayhead.
- The sprayhead is made from plastic rather than metal. However, from a durability standpoint, the plastic seems to suffice.
- The vibrant stainless model is prone to showing fingerprints so if you don’t want these consider the oil-rubbed bronze model.

This is a beautiful faucet which impresses us as much with its looks as its functionality. Practical design elements like the pause function make life that bit easier whilst in the kitchen.

We recommend the Kohler Cruette to anyone looking for an affordable, elegant looking single-lever faucet for a modern home.
