There are not much negatives reported about Kohler Sensate K-72218 series kitchen faucet. In some rare cases, sensor problems emerged after some longer time like one year or so.

With the price tag at which this faucet comes, I think the risks should be lower.

You might wonder about the off function being available on the sprayer. Actually, you can achieve that with just “waving” the faucet off and on. Turn the faucet off if you want to pull it over the counter-top and then on again.
