are all faucets equal? Moen, Kohler or Delta?

are all faucets between Moen, Kohler and Delta created equal? Meaning same quality? This would be for bath and kitchen. I have found faucets with all 3 makers that I like but don't know if one is better then another. I have seen some Grohe faucets and a pull down kitchen Franke that I liked also.

Opinions please!!!!

Thanks a bunch - - Pat

I had Grohe in my last place. They leaked in unfortunate places. I think Moen and Kohler are about the same today. Delta a touch lower. Both Moen and Kohler have a life-time replacement guarantee. And at least with Kohler (which I have in my house) - I know they mean it. They've replaced 15 year old faucets that failed for free. US companies may not do everything the best - but - in terms of plumbing - they're hard to beat IMO. Robyn

If I've learned one thing on GW, it's that NOTHING is all equal-- there are subtle differences among all things that we all can enjoy discussing at length!

Seriously, though, the summary of my GW reading on faucets:

1) Ask, are its internal parts all metal, non-plastic? or possibly, are all of its parts metal? (Some object to plastic head, some don't.) You can only determine this by reading the specs. Many manufacturers do a range of faucets at various quality levels.

2) Is there a dealer nearby for servicing under warranty?

We got a Grohe.
