Product Technologies / Benefits:

  • Starlight Finish: Continuously improving over the last 70 years Grohe’s unique plating process has been refined to produce and immaculate shiny surface that is recognized as one of the best surface finishes the world over. Grohe plates sub layers of copper and/or nickel to ensure that a completely non-porous, immaculate surface awaits the chrome layer. This deep, even layered chrome surface creates a luminous and mirror like sheen. Grohe finishes are life tested to withstand 60,000 “wipes” with an abrasive cloth.
  • SilkMove Cartridge: The rich and smooth handling of our single lever faucets conveys pure quality. As you change the temperature from hot to cold, one ceramic disc glides effortlessly across the other with absolute precision. These cartridges are manufactured in a high-tech process and feature discs made from a space-proven ceramic alloy. The SilkMove cartridge is yet another example of design and technology fusing to bring you an enhanced water experience.
  • QuickFix Plus: Precision engineering has enabled Grohe to simplify the installation process by reducing the complexity and number of parts required to fit a product. This installer-focused technology can reduce installation times by up to 50%, saving both time and money.
  • Grohe WaterCare: With the constant challenge of providing faucets that perform to the highest standards while leaving the smallest environmental foot-print possible, Grohe has created a series of “WaterCare” faucets.

Product Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse Purchase Ever We put a new kitchen in about a year ago and I thought I was getting the perfect faucet. What a mistake. This is the worse faucet ever. Ever time I use it I take a bath. The water shoots all over the place, my hardwood floors, the countertops and all over me. I've contacted grohe and they sent me minor parts to fix the problem. Needless to say nothing worked. This is an expensive faucet. Just because you spend alot of money doesn't necessarily mean it's the best. Save your money. I would never recommend this faucet. It's a real headache everytime I use it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not High Tech The spray should stay on as a toggle swithch. There is no air injection in the water flow - splashes all over the place. Recomended to my wife by a plummer. Too expensive for 1940s technology

Rated 3 out of 5 by from average rating Purchasing a Grohe I had high expectations. The head does spring back but you have to seat it correctly otherwise it won't return to its sucked back position by itself. I think the 1.5 gals a minute is a little slow but others complain about 2.2 gals per minute being too fast and splashy so maybe I made the right decision there. The neck seems a little short for my sink, the stream of water lands in the first 1/3 of the sink bowl. The handle hit the granite backsplash in the hot position so I rotated the handle to the front. That works fine but left is cold and right is hot. We like the hold down spray button. Everything else works great! Would I buy this model again? Probably NOT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, esp. with lower water pressure. I like it very much, though I just wished that the spray would stay while using it without holding down the button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grohe Ladylux Kitchen Faucet This is a fantastic Kitchen Faucet...and after 10 years and 4 months of using the Ladylux Cafe I am back to order another one. If I could find my receipt from March 2003 Grohe would send me a whole new faucet. HOW THE HECK CAN YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT THAT FOR SERVICE AND WARRANTY....That is A+++++++ and you can't beat it anywhere. What I really love the most about this faucet is the way the "Bell" feels in my hand....smooth and so easy to use. That is what sold me on this faucet. The other features fit the bill...but that "bell" is wonderfully designed. Now for those that have left poor reviews...geeze how lazy can you get. The "bell" retracts so so easily anyone that complains about it has to have a problem. I rarely push it all the way into the hole...to SEAT it. It isn't important nor does it inhibit the function of the faucet. Yes sometimes I wish I had 2 hands in the sink with the spray function...but after 10+ years I am used to not having that option. The Chrome on my faucet still looks NEW...cept for a couple small scratches. This faucet has held up fantastic. I went thru a Delta, and 2 Moen faucets bought at the Big Box Stores in the first 15 years we lived here. The last 10 years we had only one faucet, a Grohe. By the way...I bought mine in a High End Faucet/ Bath Place and paid right at $900.00....10 years and 4 months ago....Thanks Grohe for producing a DANG GOOD PRODUCT....and backing that up with GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Expensive and Annoying This faucet is a pain in the butt. Unless I micromanage the handle, there are essentially two water flow results: full on or no water at all. In addition, after about 6 months of installation, the silver finish began wrinkling and peeling off the handle mechanism. I can only hope the the inner mechanics/fittings of this very expensive faucet will compensate for the day to day hassle of not replacing it for its shortcomings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product great price We have several other Grohe fixtures in our home and just love them. So it was a very easy choice for us when replacing our old faucet in the kitchen. The entire process was great. Can't beat the price and was delivered on time.
