Price Pfister Earns Consumers Digest Best Buy Rating for Petaluma Two-Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet

Mar 15, 2010

Recently Introduced Petaluma Showcases the Price Pfister 100 Year Heritage of Beautiful and High Quality Products

Lake Forest, California (March 2010) -  Price Pfister®, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, announced today that its recently introduced Petaluma™ Two-Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet has earned the prestigious Best Buy rating in the kitchen faucet category from Consumers Digest. Faucet Best Buys were selected based on ease of use, quality of construction and variety of styles and finishes. Additionally, all Best Buy faucets have a lifetime warranty. 

The Petaluma by Price Pfister Best Buy rating was announced in an article published in the magazine’s March 2010 issue titled, “Making a Splash: Notable Kitchen Sinks and Faucets.” Consumers Digest editors noted: “The Petaluma stands out because of its pull-down spray head, which is an unusual feature in a two-handle kitchen faucet. This faucet doesn’t control the volume of the spray on the sprayhead, but it is $85 less than three-mode faucets, and we believe that that is a worthwhile trade-off. This model’s generous 15 ½-inch height makes this faucet a great value.” 

“We were the first brand to introduce the two-handle kitchen pull-down to the- more - market with the Price Pfister Hanover™ collection in 2008, so we are thrilled that this style has not only become a popular trend amongst homeowners, but that our latest design has earned this coveted rating,” said Greg Williamson, vice president, Marketing, Price Pfister. “Petaluma’s sleek design tends to attract homeowners seeking a highly stylish yet cost-effective kitchen upgrade.”

The Petaluma features a streamlined design with no deckplate for easy cleaning, allowing consumers to better display their upgraded countertops for added style. It has a ball joint sprayhead with a stream or spray option that allows flexible maneuvering for advanced kitchen functionality. This is an improvement over traditional two-handle high arc faucets with an optional sidespray, providing an opportunity for consumers to utilize the fourth sink hole for a matching soap or lotion dispenser.

The Petaluma faucet also offers a 15 ½-inch total spout height for easy clearance with big pots, and boasts an extra long 75-inch braided vinyl hose with quick connect fittings and supply lines for fast and easy installation. 

Available in a stainless steel finish, the Petaluma Two-Handle Pull-Down Faucet is available at select home improvement stores throughout the U.S. Fixtures from Price Pfister come standard with ceramic disc valves and are covered by the Pforever Warranty®, which guarantees finish and function for the life of the product.
