Intuitive Touch: Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet

Given the super-duper viruses spreading around the world of late, anything that helps reduce the spread of germs is a good thing. You may have noticed signs all over hospital and restaurant bathrooms instructing you on how to properly wash your hands. If so, then you may have already acquired misophobia (fear of being contaminated by germs, AKA spermatophobia and verminophobia but not germanophobia, as that is a fear of German people). Or perhaps you’re just slightly more suspicious of microorganisms.

Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet. Designed by Delta.

In either case, Delta’s Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with Touch2O® Technology might assuage your fears. Touch2O® Technology allows you to touch the Pilar Faucet anywhere, on the body or the handle, and water will flow. What does that have to do with germs? More than you realize, it turns out. When your hands are covered in raw chicken, you can avoid spreading salmonella simply by touching Delta’s kitchen faucet—NOT with your hands, but rather with your elbow or wrist. The “intuitive tap technology” senses your wish for water: touch it on, touch it off. “You’re sure to fall in love with just one touch,” Delta explains. So turn it on in whatever way turns you on. Taking Delta’s lead, I have descended into a romantic analogy—just in time for Valentine’s Day!





“But wait, there’s more!” Like the famed Ginsu Knife commercials from the 1970s, Delta can claim that the Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet offers more than just Touch2O® Technology. The sleek, high-arc design of Pilar looks great in both traditional and modern kitchens, its “graceful functionality” at home in an antique farm sink or a modish stainless steel number like Precision 16. A generous 54” hose lets you aim the faucet wherever you like, and the MagnaTite™ spray head “ensures a snug fit of the wand” (is that a double entendre, or is it just me?). “But that’s not all!” The Pilar Kitchen Faucet also comes is your choice of Chrome or Brilliance® stainless, Delta’s revolutionary patented process that makes the sink resistant to…everything but the kitchen sink. Brilliance® stainless uses a process known as Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) to “create a bond that’s virtually indestructible with an incredibly reflective shine.” It also resists scratching and discoloration. All of this makes the Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet a real dream.
