Single handle kitchen faucets are a very popular basic style kitchen faucet. They look good and range on the low-end of the cost spectrum. Some like the Delta Collins Faucet come with a matching side spray, which is great for cleaning all the nooks and crannies and filling those large pots. Plus these lever type models are usually very ADA friendly.
Hardness does not refer to how solid the material is but how this particular material can withstand scratches from other kinds of material. You have to do washing in your sink and you are most likely to scratch the faucet with kitchen utensils very often, so if the finish of your faucet cannot withstand scratches, you would most probably end up with one ugly looking faucet after a short while. Studies have shown that the brushed finished kitchen faucet is considered one of the hardest in the market.
Time for chemistry class. Faucet exteriors are assaulted with charged metal atoms. These particles bond chemically to the surface of the base metal by a procedure called physical vapor deposition, or PVD. The issue is that different metals have an effect on assorted finishes. Even nickel and bronze. The evaluation team discovered that faucets with PVD finishes stood strong despite their honest attempts to scratch and mar them. PVD finishes are not 100% bullet proof however and heavy-duty corrosives (i.e. drain cleaner) can lightly discolor them.
