Expanding its current offering of single-control kitchen faucets, Kohler introduces Forté kitchen faucets, boasting attractive transitional style, fluid lines, and exceptional performance. The beautifully crafted handle of Forté provides comfortable hand control, and the faucet's integrated cast body and spout make it exceptionally easy to keep clean. Available with an escutcheon for single-hole or three-hole installations and an optional sidespray, Forté is perfect for roomy single and double- basin sinks. Its 6-inch spout height allowing more clearance for taller containers, and its generous 9-inch spout reach makes it ideal for handling larger pots.
The Forté faucet's single lever makes it easy to operate: simply flip up the lever to turn on the water and move the lever left to right to find the desired temperature. Once you find the right temperature, leave the lever in place and turn the faucet on and off as needed. A high-temperature control lets you preset a maximum setting to eliminate scalding.
The ergonomic sprayhead pulls out of the faucet with a counterweighted, braided-nylon hose that moves quietly and efficiently. The ball-joint swivel sprayhead ensures smooth operation, which means you can control it with minimal effort. Also, the MasterClean sprayface resists mineral buildup and is easy to clean. The two spray options are easily controlled with a side-to-side diverter that allows for either a traditional or palm grip--convenient for both right- and left-handed users. For further ease of use, the spray-pattern memory recalls the last setting used, and a high-temperature limit stop and temperature memory feature maintain a safe, ideal water temperature.
The Forté faucet's premium metal construction ensures a long life, and the finish is bonded to the faucet to resist scratches, corrosion, and tarnishing. All Forté faucets come in several finishes that exceed industry durability standards two times and boast distinctive color and texture selections, including authentic hand-brushed finishes. Forté kitchen faucets are offered in Polished Chrome, Brushed Chrome, Vibrant Polished Brass, Vibrant French Gold, Vibrant Brushed Nickel, and Vibrant Brushed Bronze. For even greater durability, Forté kitchen faucets feature one-piece self-contained ceramic valves that exceed industry standards for longevity and allow for straightforward volume and temperature control.
