A kitchen faucet with cleverly engineered pull-out function allows you to fill the pots that are placed on the counter-top or even directly on the cooking surface without the need of fitting them under the faucet. When washing vegetables, it allows you to direct the stream right where you need it and even change conveniently to the spray mode. The button is normally placed right on the spray head. Not all pull-out faucets have the water-off function available right on the spray head. There are some popular models, however, that offer that too. If you think you will often pull the spray head over the edge of the sink, the water-off button can come in handy.
They have been around for a very long time. They are known as compression faucets as they work through compression of a washer against a valve seat which is usually at the base of the faucet. The cool thing with them is that they have separate knobs for hot and cold water. While they are great to have, they tend to develop leaks every now and then.
It is good to know how the handle works. There are faucets with advanced handle technology that allows you to adjust the temperature and pressure with just a fingertip. On others it may take a little time to get used to the way the handle moves. Some people can find it somewhat difficult to move the handle into the exact off position at first. But very few of them consider that being a problem. Another huge time saver is the touch sensitivity in kitchen faucets. You can preset your favorite temperature and pressure with the handle and have it always ready. The water flow turns on when you touch the faucet with your hand or forearm. Another touch will turn the water off. There is no need to worry that your pet can turn the water on. It is highly unlikely since a touch operable faucet from nearly any brand distinguishes a "touch" from a "grip". It means that, in order to activate the faucet, you need to touch it with your finger and remove it in a fraction of a second. The faucet does not get activated when you are pushing it out of the way, for example.
