The decision may be tough at times. But it does not have to be like buying a pig in a poke. With a little research, you can find a lot of useful feedback from existing users about how the touch sensitivity works in different kitchen faucets. Some faucets have tens, if not hundreds, of reviews on the largest online vendor websites like Amazon. The number of reviews and the ratings given can be a good indication of the quality of the faucet. You can see if there are a lot of people having issues with the touch sensitivity in a particular faucet.
If you wash a lot of large pots, fill vases often or have a big roomy sink a high arc faucet is probably for you. High-arc, also known as gooseneck or high neck faucets, give you more room to work. Today′s high arc kitchen faucets often have beautiful flowing curves and tapered handles and could easily be the focal point of a kitchen. These faucets are best used in deep sinks, they will cause splashing if the sink is shallow. Most bar sink faucets are of the high arc type to allow as much room as possible for washing produce.
The cleverly engineered touch sensitivity system distinguishes between "touch" and "grip". When you tap it, your hand needs to be removed from the faucet within a fraction of a second. If the hand stays on the faucet, it is identified as a "grip", and the faucet does not respond. So it is practically impossible for pets to activate it.
On the other hand, if it is one of the fears described below that stops you from having a touch sensitive kitchen faucet, then think again. You just need to find a good model that has already proved to be reliable in other people′s kitchens.
