You can find kitchen faucets with the options of single, double or no handle at all. The no handle option can make your work faster as they work on sensors and the flow of water starts automatically when you bring your hands down the faucet but this won’t be a good choice if you have naughty kids. A double handle is a nice option where you don’t have to control temperature and water-flow simultaneously with a single handle.
