I recently wrote that the search was on for the best new kitchen faucet I could find. I am now the proud owner of a Delta Touch20.
The faucet has a conventional on/off handle. But the Touch20 technology allows you to touch the faucet anywhere for it to turn it on or off.
Messy hands? Use the back of your hand or your elbow or forearm to turn the water on. In addition to being a handy thing, it also helps prevent the spread of dirt and cross contamination.
It has a water-saver shutoff feature, too. If you should happen to leave the faucet on for four minutes, it automatically shuts off.
Another bonus: Unlike infrared sensors, outside factors such as lighting conditions, clothing color and mirrors or reflections do not interfere with the sensing capability. You don’t have to worry that the water will turn on just because you are placing something in the sink.
