But what are you really getting when you pay mega dollars towards a shiny new kitchen faucet? Chances are all you're actually receiving is less money to use on the rest of your kitchen improvement.

In this situation, you don't always end up with what you pay for!
Of all the fixtures and appliances the kitchen faucet is probably the one we use the most. According to faucet manufacturer KWC, the average family uses the kitchen faucet more than 40 times a day. Whether it's hand washing, rinsing off dishes, filling a pasta pot or washing vegetables, the kitchen faucet gets a real workout every day. So when it's time to buy a new faucet you need to know how to choose one that will do it's job and will keep doing it for years to come. But, not to worry, this guide should take much of the fear and loathing out of selecting a new faucet.
Today's faucets are commonly made from brass with various finishing such as gold plating and powder-coated enamel. However, brass contains lead which can cause lead poisoning that will eventually lead to many serious health problems. Due to this, all faucet manufacturers in the U.S. are not allowed to include more than 8 percent of this substance in their brass faucets, according to the Safe Drinking Water Act. If you are concerned about your health, you might want to look into other alternative such as ceramic faucets since ceramic does not contain dangerous chemicals that might harm our body.
