Once upon a time, there was a girl. She was a food blogger, and she longed for a better kitchen and more space to work. Then one fabulous day, her wish was granted. She moved into a big new house, one she’d been dreaming of for a very, very long time.

But alas, as wonderful as her new home was, it’s previous owners had left it in a state of neglect and disrepair. It had been vacant for a year, and before she even moved in, thousands of dollars were spent just getting it livable. Remember how she told you about the time it rained from the garbage disposal?

One of the first things she purchased when she moved into her new food-blogger-friendly home was a new faucet for her kitchen sink. The old one leaked, was rusted, and generally was not suitable for…anyone. But because she was spending so much money on paint and carpet and new garbage disposals, she had to forgo the beautiful arched faucets she coveted and go with the basic model.

Fast forward a year of leaky frustration, and she was ready to upgrade to another and new and better faucet, a Delta Faucet. When the girl started shopping for her faucet, she realized that some Delta Faucet faucets now come with the option of Touch20 Technology. She was astonished – all it would take to turn the water on or off is a simple touch! And the faucet also has an automatic shut off.

She imagined it, her life with her new Delta Touch20 Technology faucet.

No more chocolate smears on the handles.

No more wasted water when she turned to stir the boiling over pot.

A faucet that has an arch high enough to fit her pasta pot or a full sink of dirty dishes, something that happens regularly.

Immediately, the girl began to decide which Delta Touch20 faucet would go perfectly in her food-blogger-friendly kitchen.

No worries there – Delta makes it easy! All she had to do was take the Style Quiz on the Delta website.

After answering several style questions, the quiz told her what she anticipated, that her style was Traditional. It also gave several faucet options that would fit perfectly with her style.

Afterward, she decided to find her Kitchen ID on the Delta website, to help her narrow down her faucet choices.

After telling the program she loved the look of the Arctic Stainless finish, the website returned to her with the faucet that would most fit her style and kitchen needs:

The Cassidy with Touch20 Technology! Inspired by the female silhouette, it offers unexpected convenience in classic form. With it’s high arched nozzle sprayer and it’s touch to turn on technology, she delighted in her choice, thanks to Delta Faucet.

Then she waited (not-so-patiently) ever after, for her faucet to arrive so she could share the rest of her journey with her readers.

    Been wanting a no touch faucet..even though I have really nice faucets. Trying to convince hubby I REALLY need it. I have two sinks in the kitchen so I think one should be this one!!

    Gasp! I need a magical faucet like that! I am always getting food and other unidentifiable sticky stuff (from baking!) on my faucet, and it’s so annoying!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on July 23rd, 2013 at 6:31 pm

      Totally! I can’t wait for a chocolate free faucet. :)

    Yay for new faucets – and better kitchens! :)

    • Dorothy Kern replied on July 23rd, 2013 at 6:31 pm

      Oh, if only I could do the whole kitchen! That would be awesome…

    Dorothy, you are WAY too cute with your story!! I really want a touch faucet too… But we’re currently renting a house, so there’s no way I’m going to get one anytime soon. For now, I have to be satisfied by watching the Next Food Network Star and seeing the contestants get to use them… Sigh. Dreaming big!

    • Delta Faucet replied on July 23rd, 2013 at 2:38 pm

      Amy, we love that you watch Next Food Network Star, we are proud sponsors and get excited every time we see the chef’s using our faucets.

    • Dorothy Kern replied on July 23rd, 2013 at 6:32 pm

      I know, I saw them on Food Network Star too! It got me more excited, lol. Thanks Amy!

    @ Delta Faucet (or anyone else)… any idea how long the batteries on such Touch2O faucets last on average? And how do we know when we need to replace the batteries?
