Kitchen faucet choice


I am getting a lot of conflicting information on faucets.I want to spend less than $200 on a pull out faucet with a base to nozzle reach of 9"in stainless steel. I have looked at Kohlers and Moens that get mixed reviews on durability.Any suggestions?

I always tell people if you have to spend a little more to get a name brand, get a moen. Free parts for-evar.

I put a Delta in my kitchen 20 years ago. I've fixed it once since. Diverter stuck and the spray didn't work. Parts were easy to find at the Orange Box. Repair was simple.
