New H2O Heater and no pressure in kitchen

All, installed a new 40gal water heater yesterday. Have good pressure in all taps but the kitchen. Have very little pressure on hot & cold in the kitchen. Have good pressure in the sprayer though. Checked the screen at the end of the faucet and some lime. Also set the thermostat at recommend level (120 Degrees) and just warm water now in shower. It is a GE mid tier water heater. Your suggestions are appreciated.

If its not the aerator in the kitchen then the cartridge should be cleaned and checked for debris.

Often 120F is set by the manufacturer and homeowners are used to their old water heater temp which may have been set significantly higher.

You may need to adjust the scald control on the shower faucet.
