Avid cooks and anyone who uses the kitchen sink will appreciate the touch technology of a hands-free faucet. Just tap anywhere on the spout or handle with your hand, wrist or forearm and the flow of water starts or stops. No question that the faucet is convenient; it’s also a way to avoid cross contamination in the kitchen when you’re preparing chicken or meat and you want to wash your hands without touching other surfaces.
A Delta single handle pull-down kitchen faucet with Touch2O® Technology that sells for $370 is designed for do-it-yourself installation requiring only two adjustable wrenches and a Phillips screwdriver. You’ll also need a flashlight, eye protection and a bucket. A plumber will charge $615 for the installation, which includes the faucet and the labor.
