Keep your hands--and elbows, and wrists--on this faucet

Delta's latest offering lets you turn the water on and off with a single touch.

You're approaching the kitchen sink with raw meat all over your hands. Now what? You contort your hands around to turn on the water without making a mess, or you make a mess and then spend an extra five minutes sanitizing the faucet. Or, you take advantage of Delta Faucet's new Touch2O technology and touch the faucet with your wrist, forearm, or elbow to start and stop the flow of water.

Use the handle as you would any ordinary faucet, or open the faucet and then start and stop the flow of water with a simple touch to the faucet. Tap anywhere on the spout or handle to turn the water on or off. After 4 minutes of inactivity, the automatic water shut-off kicks in--a major plus for households with kids.

The faucet comes in two- or three-hole installation options and is available in chrome and stainless-steel finishes. Check it out below, and snag it for $300 to $450.
