Welcome to the Delta Touch 2O® Faucet giveaway sponsored by Delta Faucet. Chef Dad has been busy trying out their Touch2O® technology in the kitchen. See what he thinks below.
Delta has decided to help out one of our UrbanMoms members with a Delta Touch 2O® faucet giveaway. Leave a comment below and let us know what recipe leaves your hands the messiest in the kitchen?
I’ve been cooking for the past 15 years. When I’m not cooking I also happen to be employed in the tech industry. So my kitchen has seen its fair share of gizmos and gadgets over the years. The majority of these are used for a month or so and then forgotten in the backs of cupboards, bottom of drawers, and wherever else gadget-du-jour go to die.
It is not often that technology is able to really make a lasting impression in my kitchen. So many inventions of recent memory are a must-have until you have them. They then prove to be too hard to clean, or take up too much room, or simply more difficult to operate than doing it via the old fashioned method of yesteryear.
I had seen the commercials for the Delta Touch 2O faucets on TV, as I’m sure you have. Yes, it looked like a handy invention, but I didn’t really give it another thought. However, since installing it in my kitchen a couple of months ago, it has completely revolutionized the sink and faucet experience in our house.
My hands are constanatly covered in food. Flour, chicken, oil, egg, fruit, it never ends. I never realized how much this faucet would make my life so much easier. I simply touch the faucet with my forearm and can wash my hands without worrying about covering the handle in whatever happens to be coating my hands at that given moment. I can move seamlessly from one activity to another (like cutting up chicken, to dipping it in egg and breadcrumb) without constantly worrying about the mess or bacteria I’m leaving behind.
The other unexpected joy of owning this faucet has been the ability for my 5 and 8 year olds to turn the faucet on themselves without having to reach the handle at the base of the faucet. They simply reach up and tap the faucet to turn it on and off. Delta did not highlight that in the advertising I saw – but it has been such a great added pleasure.
I could go on about the benefits of the button which fills pots up at a quicker rate than a standard faucet, or the magnetic docking head which ensures the pull-out mechanism does not leave your faucet dangling, but you could check out all of those details over on the Beige is Dead site. Go on and leave a comment below to win your own Delta Touch 2O® faucet. It will make the world of difference to your kitchen. Trust me.
