How Good Are Danze Kitchen Faucets?
Danze kitchen faucets are sold by a variety of retailers, both online and the traditional brick-and-mortar stores. Even local hardware stores are known to carry this brand from time to time. They are one of the few brands that look to incorporate modern styling to create a customized look while still being able to meet the budgetary demands of the average consumer.
In our research on this brand, we averaged the rankings of every retailer that accepts public reviews for Danze kitchen faucets. It came to a 4.0 out of 5.
We also took a look at forums, complaint websites, and similar content that collects public data regarding brand complaints. At first glimpse, the average rating for Danze on these platforms is just 1.4 out of 5.
When we dug deeper into what the reviews actually depicted, we discovered that many of the reviews weren’t for Danze. They were for an online kitchen and bath store that functions as a drop-shipper and has difficult return policies for consumers to follow. Although the ratings are associated with the Danze brand for online search purposes, they are not directly associated with the brand and should be ignored.
There is a noticeable difference in ratings between the gooseneck, commercial, and two-handle designs created by Danze. Their commercial-style kitchen faucets receive the highest ratings, averaging a 4.4 out of 5. The two-handle designs average an even higher rating, at 4.5.
In comparison, if the single-handle gooseneck kitchen faucets are evaluated on their own, the average is just 3.6.
For Danze, that means an emphasis must be placed on shopping outside of the collections that offer a one handle design with a gooseneck arc for the best possible results.
Kitchen Faucet Types That Are Available from Danze
Danze manufactures several types of faucets so that the perfect look and functionality can be added to almost any kitchen. You’ll find the following types of faucets are available in most of the collections that are currently being marketed.
- Pull Down and Pull Out Kitchen Faucets
- Pot Fillers
- Single Handle Kitchen Faucets
- Two Handle Kitchen Faucets
- Dual Control Kitchen Faucets
Danze also has several convenience faucets and bar-type faucets that are available for installation which may work in certain kitchens.
Styles are contemporary, traditional, and transitional within this brand.
For the best value option, we highly recommend the collection that is called Opulence by Danze. Although this collection is priced a little higher than their other collections, the level of variety that is available, along with the fashion-forward looks that fuse old and new together harmoniously, is difficult to beat.
Take the single-handle pull-out kitchen faucet that is included with the Opulence collection. It offers elements of nature-driven design with a wider profile and top handle, yet the convenience of a pull-out design that meets most low-flow GPM requirements. This faucet operates at a maximum 1.75 GPM.
There are 6 different finishes available with this faucet, which is a single-hole mount design that comes with an optional deck plate. It offers a two-function faucet, with a spray or an aerated stream. Take the aerator out and you can achieve a maximum flow rate of 2.2 GPM for areas that do not have restrictions.
It is also a faucet that is quiet and can operate in virtually any kitchen. The spout height is just 7 inches, while the length is 8.5 inches. That design prevents a lot of splashing that other faucet designs tend to provide. It’s low lead compliant and uses ceramic disc valves to create a durable, tight seal that will last over time.
With some plumbing or faucet installation experience, DIY’ers can successfully install most Danze faucets without much problem. Installation guides and videos are available online. On the Danze website, you can download a PDF of their official installation manual, a spec sheet for your preferred faucet, and an illustrated parts list.
Danze provides a more affordable way to bring a modern upgrade to any home or create the perfect look for new construction. It’s definitely worth a closer look by anyone who is looking to install a new kitchen faucet in their home or business.
