I’ll be upfront on this one – this one isn’t actually touchless, but it is hands-free. And it’s still 100% awesome, which is why it earns the #2 spot on my list. It’s feature rich, too. And that definitely adds to the entire package. Some of those features include the proprietary Touch2O tech, the spray mode that doesn’t splatter, and docking with magnets.
Many customers actually consider this the best Delta faucet because of all those features. That’s saying a lot considering Delta makes thousands of them.
This model is really smart. It can actually tell the difference between a quick touch and a grab. Trust me, I’ve failed to trick it once.
I will say that the sensors are sensitive. It turns itself on if your cat lightly brushes up against it. Fortunately, it does have a 4 minute timer, so you don’t have to worry about flooding your house when you’re gone. That’s a relief.
ALMOST NO SPLASH BACK
This Delta has two flow settings:
- Stream with aeration.
It also has an additional spray mode that results in no splash back called ShieldSpray. Basically, ShieldSpray creates a shield of water around the spray, and this creates a vortex that prevents most water from splashing back onto you.
This shield also increases the range and pressure. Even if you don’t normally splatter water all over the place, it still has uses. Personally, I don’t fully understand how Delta did this, but it sure does work great. And that’s why ShieldSpray has won so many awards.
It has everything: excellent aesthetics, a ceramic disc to stop unexpected drips, compatibility with 1 and multi-hole sinks, and a plate that covers extra holes on your sink. Delta didn’t leave anything out when designing this model. My favorite feature is the LED light that turns red when the water temperature gets hot. I haven’t seen a faucet with this feature, so I’ll give Delta credit on that one.
Delta also knows that most people are too lazy to change out the batteries, which is why this model can run on AC power. Good job, Delta.
Anyway, I highly, highly recommend this one if you want a flawless experience in your kitchen. It truly doesn’t get better than this.
