Alicja’s Reviews of the Best Touchless Kitchen Faucets

Introduction

When it comes to touchless kitchen faucets, there is a lot to choose from. There are many different options available, depending on who produces the faucet. Overall, these faucets are very sanitary because you don’t need to touch different parts of them in order to use them. Furthermore, these faucets make everyday tasks like cooking and washing dishes a lot easier. Read on to discover the best touchless kitchen faucets, and what makes them stand out.

MOEN

At $400, the Moen’s price is a bit steep; however, it is packed with great, useful features. One of the best features is that it offers 50% more spray power than other Moen faucets. Since other Moen faucets have a decent amount of spray power, that means that this faucet will be great for dishes that are tough to clean. But that’s not all. This faucet comes with a special finish that protects against fingerprints and other residue. A faucet stands out in a kitchen, and keeping a faucet clean helps make the kitchen look nicer. Then there is the 3-function pull down wand, with several different types of streams for different types of cleaning. This means you can use the faucet to clean many different things. Last but not least, you can activate the faucet through MotionSense even when the handle is in the off position. This is great for when you need water quickly. The one clear downside to this faucet is the price, but don’t let that deter you. This is still one of the best touchless kitchen faucets on the market.

KOHLER

The Kohler is $100 less than the Moen mentioned above, but the Kohler is still one of the best touchless kitchen faucets available. For one, the sensor responds in milliseconds. I’m sure many of you have had the experience of using a public restroom with a touchless faucet that take a long time to actually start dispensing water. This can be annoying, but when you are cooking, it is even more important to have water that comes out quickly. With the Kohler, you won’t be waiting around for the water. Another interesting feature is that the Kohler can sense when you are intentionally trying to activate the faucet, versus when you are just moving around near the faucet, resulting in easy hand washing. This can help to save a lot of water, and it’s another reason why the Kohler is one of the best. Finally, like the Moen, the Kohler also has a special finish that prevents the faucet from getting damaged by routine wear and tear.

American Standard

American Standard is another brand that many of us know and love. They are well-known and reputable, just like Kohler and Moen. This touchless kitchen faucet is slightly less (one website listed it at $373) than the Moen, but more expensive than the Kohler. The American Standard boasts many great features, and it is easy to see why it’s one of the best out there. For starters, the American Standard has a sensor slider, meaning you can actually change between manual and touchless control. This can be very useful when you want to have a normal faucet for some things, and a touchless faucet for others. Another unique feature on the American Standard is a ceramic disc valve that prevents dripping for the life of the faucet. This may seem minor, but no one wants to listen to a dripping faucet while they cook or do other things in the kitchen. A more important feature is the magnetic technology to ensure the spray head stays in place when not in use. The strong magnetism ensures that the spray head doesn’t fall off the faucet or get out of place in anyway.

Pfister Selia Stainless Steel 1-Handle Pull-Down Touchless Kitchen Faucet

Pfister is a brand that some of you might not be so familiar with, but don’t let that stop you from considering it. The Pfister touchless kitchen faucet comes in at $300, which is the price of the Kohler. For $300, you get some great features. There is a lever handle, in case you want to use the faucet as a regular faucet, but there is also touch-free technology in the faucet. A limited lifetime warranty is included with this faucet, putting it on par with the other faucets mentioned in this article. Finally, there is a pull down spray head, something that has become common on many touchless kitchen faucets, but also something that is very useful. Just think about how much easier washing dishes will be with this faucet.

Now that you have an idea on some of the best faucet brands, it may be time to really consider upgrading your faucets.
