GROHE K7 Kitchen Tap : Looks fantastic and feels substantial

Mixer tap but above all the finish of a great product shows. A fabulous mixer tap but above all the finish of a great product shows. Its al good but dont forget to buy the converters with the tap.

The chrome finish is bright & shiny, the lever control feels solid & the spray head returns with a satisfying click. The aeration is smooth & makes the water feel like silk. Is is very heavy though & likely unsuitable for installing directly on to a sink surface. My builder said it was a pig to install, but agrees it was worth the effort.

It’s kinda hard to get too excited about a tap – you turn it on and water comes out – but this one works much better than it’s predecessor and looks the business as well.

  • Beautiful & Practical
  • Very Nice quality item

-this is the shorter [539mm, chrome version. [as opposed to the ‘supersteel’]-rrp: £628 incl vat- so, quite a lot off from amazon-the 140° arc of rotation means the tap can reach almost the rear side of the sink/ both sinks if mounted between double sinks. – as a merchant warned me, the weight & height of the tap provides quite a lot of leverage & has a tendency to ’tilt’/ lean, slightly, if the tap is ‘pulled’ to the side- due to flexure in the stainless steel if mounted to the sink. This can only be prevented if tap is mounted through the worktop. -some manufacturers supply mounts which fit under the sink to help to reduce the flexure. -excellent solid/sturdy feel in the way the tap turns; on/off lever action v. Smooth; the mixer mixes ‘smoothly’ [as opposed to previous hansgrohe, franke taps i’ve had which seemed to go either scalding hot or stone cold]- forget about rinsing, say, a stock pot sideways inside the sink, as there is insufficient bend in the spring to let the tap point sideways down inside the sink. The lowest ‘sideways’ position of the shower handle is approx 6in above worktop level. ]

The house wife’s dream kitchen tap. I can’t pretend to be one who gets excited about taps, although at this price it did nearly give me a cardiac. But, if the reaction of wifey is anything to go by, then this is the kitchen tap of all taps. Looks and feels quality with the added bonus of being fully functional as well. As i said, i’m not one to bang one out over a kitchen tap, but the wife is delighted and every visitor gets a bespoke demo and a personal invite to spray the water around the sink. If everything associated with being married was as easy as choosing one of these then i recommend getting one every week.

    Purchased used product – a wonderful piece of engineering.

      1. I may have found the perfect kitchen tap :). I bought it to replace a recently fitted tap of lesser quality (seems to be a surprisingly frequent occurrence), and i expect this one to last. The plumber was really pleased with it, and it radiates quality and solidity. He also found it much easier to fit than the last one.

    1. Very nice quality item, but you do need the adapters as posted by previous reviewer from toolstation[. Worth noting also that the tap tails on this item are pre installed. I spent about 30 mins between trying to tighten them or in an attempt to remove them, it appears that as they are pre fitted that they are not interchangeable, unless i am mistaken. Worth noting for people installing the item. All in all excellent quality and worth the extra money.

    I am now obsessive about grohe. This tap is brilliant – it looks fantastic, it is of the highest quality and it does exactly what it says. It is a tall tap, so be very careful about height if you have a cupboard above the sink. Even the packaging is excellent. The moving parts glide and the water flow through the tap outlet can be controlled across a broad spectrum, from drip to fast flow. It is a mixer and the temperature mix is also easy to control.

      1. Thrilled to bits with it – had it about 6 months, and still love it.
