With so many innovative home products on the market — some of which are life changing, others of which are nice but you can probably live without — it's easy to become jaded by all of your options. But if you think about it, the best touchless kitchen faucets are so much more than just smart fads. They can actually keep you healthier and make your life so much easier.
Your hands reach for kitchen faucet handles when they're perfectly clean and you need to wash a pot or dish, but also after you've been somewhere where germs reside and your goal is to remove bacteria and germs from your hands. The problem, of course, is that when you touch your faucet with dirty hands, you transfer that dirt to the faucet surface, where it will stay until you physically clean your faucet.
A touchless faucet is a more hygienic kitchen alternative that works using motion sensing technology. The faucet is constructed with one or two sensors, as well as a traditional lever to adjust the temperature. It turns on when you simply position or wave your hand beneath it, which means you'll never have to touch your faucet with germ-ridden hands again. (You will have to change the faucet's battery on occasion, so be aware that there is minor maintenance involved in owning one of these cool faucets.)
These touchless faucets differ in terms of price and features, but all are constructed to fit one or three hole sinks. Depending on the features that are most important to you — whether that means an automatic turn-off function or a fully flexible hose — you'll find on that's perfect for your home.
