Delta Faucet Kate
Soft curves and a sleek, refined finish come together to mix the classic and modern, whereas Diamond Seal Technology and magnetic docking come together to mix functionality and durability in Delta’s Kate Single-Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet!
The Delta faucet’s patented Diamond Seal Technology is literally its greatest strength—the technology uses a valve, coated with diamond, that lets you use the faucet an impressive 5 million times (twice the industry average, FYI), while also keeping the water inside the faucet out of contact and therefore, uncontaminated by potential metal pollutants. It also reduces leakage almost completely when combined with the one-piece supply lines and diamond-embedded ceramic disc and makes installation faster thanks to the Duramount mounting system. There is no need to lubricate the valve either and wear on seals is eliminated.
The Delta MagnaTite Docking system keeps the pull-down sprayer firmly in place when not in use. The faucet is available in chrome and stainless-steel (Brilliance Stainless) finishes.

A Guide to Buying Kitchen Faucets with Soap Dispensers
When the time comes for you to pick out kitchen faucets on your own, here are a few things to keep in mind!
Faucets come in various types, such as pull-down, pull-out, long hoses and detachable spray heads, in addition to the standard fixed neck. What type you end up buying should be influenced by your needs in the kitchen.
Extended-hose faucets let you pull the hose out for cleaning, which makes them convenient if you need to use the hose in various areas of the kitchen, such as filling a bucket that you can’t fit in your sink. Pull-out and pull-down faucets are the same, except that the hoses are much shorter in the former, making them ideal for smaller kitchens.
Kitchen faucets can also be categorized based on the handles—single or double. You’ll also find touchless faucets—an increasingly popular option.
Cartridges are probably one of the most important parts of a faucet, if not “the” most important. These are responsible for opening and closing the paths for water flow, controlled by the handle or stem’s movement. You’ll encounter single-function and mixer cartridges while buying faucets. With the former, you only get one water line, either cold or hot and are typically ceramic, though you may find compression presses too, in vintage designs.
Mixer cartridges, on the other hand, allow the control of dual water supply lines simultaneously, with a single handle. The mixer chamber lets you mix hot and cold water before it flows out. The most common mixer cartridges are ceramic disc cartridges and ball valves.
Number of Mounting Holes
Some faucets only require one mounting hole to be installed, whereas others may require five or six! Depending on the faucet you bought and your countertop, you may have to cut out some holes for the faucet, but luckily, this isn’t too time or effort consuming!
In case you have more holes than your current faucet requires, even after installing your soap dispenser, use a plate or cap to cover them up (you generally have to buy these separately).
Many faucets come with additional features such as multiple spraying modes, voice command, touchless control and soap dispensers. Since soap dispensers are the most relevant feature in this article, look for dispensers that are high-quality (of the same quality as the faucet), have large-capacity bottles and can preferably be filled conveniently from above the counter.
Multiple spraying modes are useful and practical, whereas touchless faucets are convenient and automatic, resulting in a ton of water saving. Also look for protective finishes, as these protect the faucet against corrosion, rust, smudges, fingerprints and water spots.
Faucets with soap dispensers can come in extremely handy in the kitchen and can turn out to be extremely convenient. Pick one of our recommended faucets or buy your own with the help of our guide!
Remember, in addition to all of the factors discussed above, also keep your budget in mind. Anywhere between $100 and $250 is a reasonable price to pay for an above-average faucet. Anything beyond $250 is only for frills and additions that don’t really enhance the faucet’s functionality—except for smart features like voice command, which start at $500.
