High/Low: Dornbracht vs. Grohe Kitchen Faucet

Issue 86 · The Summer Kitchen · August 23, 2013

It's a challenge picking the perfect kitchen faucet. Who knew? We were exposed to endless options during our recent remodel. We narrowed down the choices and ultimately went with a German-made Grohe faucet. If money weren't an issue, my top choice would have been a Dornbracht Tara faucet (also German, but four times the price). After all, the products are almost identical.

Above: We installed a Grohe Concetto Faucet in our kitchen; $376.35 from eFaucets. It is available in super steel (our choice) and in polished chrome.

Above: My top choice (if money were no object), would be the Tara Logic Single-Level Basin Mixer, a modern classic; $1,656 at Faucet Supply.
