Banner Utility Sink Faucet - Metal Lever Handles
Friendly to elbows
Easy to use lever handles and nice swiveling spout. Would love to have the spray extension for the tub corners, but for the price, this is a great faucet.

Faucet arrived promptly and in perfect condition. Looks great on the laundry room sink.

OK Laundry Tub Faucet
It is nice and works but it is maddening that the spout and handles are on the same plane so that they bump into each other. The spout needs to be arched a bit higher. Also maddening that there is no way to spray around the tub to rinse dirt out. Had to buy a swivel nozzle at the hardware store.

Good Quality Faucet with Annoying Design Flaws
I had this faucet installed three months ago on my laundry sink. Performance-wise, so far, so good. This faucet is much higher quality than the off-the-shelf options at Lowe's or Home Depot. (Even my plumber, who is a faucet snob, approved.) The problems I have found are with the design. In particular:
(1) The faucet spout is in the same horizontal plane as the levers, so they run into each other unless the spout is kept in the center. I have a two-bowl laundry sink, so this can be very inconvenient. If I want to run hot water in the left sink or cold in the right sink, then the spout is fighting for space with the lever, and one has to give in!
(2) The spout is not even close to long enough for most laundry sinks -- it should be at least 3 inches longer.
(3) To address (1) and (2), I looked for an alternative spout that can be used with this faucet model. It turns out that Banner only makes ONE other spout that can be used with this model. It is a bar-type spout, which addresses (1), but makes (2) much worse, since the reach is only a couple of inches.
Bottom line: This is a good faucet for a single-bowl laundry sink on the small side. For anything else, I would keep looking.

Lever handles too tall
I selected this faucet for the large lever handles. It’s nice to be able to turn on the faucet using your wrist or forearm when your hands are dirty (a nice convenience feature). The only problem is that the levers are too tall and restrict the movement of the faucet spout when the faucet is on. This is a real pain. The quality of the faucet is fine, but I can’t recommend it given the issue with the restricted movement of the spout.

nice product , smooth operation , Banner has easy to operate handles and a shiny finish.
The blade type handles make for an elbow shutofff . I attached a swivel spray head to improve the range of
water flow. An eight or ten inch water spout would help extend the water reach but the swivel did the job.
