High/Low: Dornbracht vs. Grohe Kitchen Faucet

Choosing the perfect kitchen faucet is a challenge. Who knew? My husband and I looked at endless options during our recent renovation. We narrowed down the choice to two German models: the Grohe Concetto faucet and the Dornbracht Tara Logic single-level basin mixer. One at $ 307.45, the other at $ 1,473.37. Which one convinced us? If money weren’t a problem our first choice would have been the Dornbracht, but we went with the Grohe. After all, the products are almost identical.
