Backed by Delta Faucet, the Peerless brand is not only affordable but also trustworthy. Its kitchen faucets are for the most basic needs, but not without flaunting solid features and designs that blend in well with a variety of kitchen styles.
The Peerless Tunbridge P299578LF Two-Handle Kitchen Faucet is a set worth checking out for its reasonable price tag and practical traits. It’s no doubt a nice spout but not the best one available, to be honest. However, it does have what it takes to be a handy addition to the kitchen.
Let’s see what this one is about.
Peerless Kitchen Faucet Review: Main Features
Simple but Functional
Although the Peerless Tunbridge won’t immediately impress you since it’s not made only for functionality and not ornamenting. It sports a smooth-looking exterior with very few details.
The arc of the neck is high up, giving free space for tall water containers. The spout can rotate a full 360-degree, making it helpful even with larger sinks. There are two handles, each release hot or cold water, to control the water’s flow and temperature.
Compared to single-handle faucets, especially inexpensive ones, those with two handles tend to receive less complaint about flow and temperature control. And since the two lever-handles turn a quarter towards the front, the faucet’s operation should not meet any restraint even if the distance from the backsplash is little.
The Peerless Tunbridge also comes with a side sprayer that yields high water pressure for the task of rinsing. The sprayer extends out thanks to its not-too-short hose and is capable of certain tasks that a fixed spout is not.
Easy to Install
The Tunbridge a 4-hole set, counting the side sprayer, with standard sizing. It’s not complicated to install at all. There are clear instructions in the manual, or you can check out this easy-to-follow tutorial video.
However, the water supply lines are not included and must be purchased separately. Anything standard with ½-inch fittings should suffice.
One quick tip: Use plumber’s putty or silicone instead to pad and seal where the base meets the counter.
The kitchen faucet is under a lifetime limited warranty by Delta Faucet.
As a low-priced model, the faucet can’t escape a few setbacks.
The first is its plastic construction. While the stainless steel or chrome finish adds to the overall longevity of the spout, plastic doesn’t last long overtime. And in regards to toughness against physical force, plastic loses hands down.
For example, the spout may crack if you hit it hard enough with a metal pot or pan. But in return, it doesn’t rust and doesn’t put much weight on the countertop.
The second setback is the water supply lines, which are not included as mentioned before.
