Review: Lysol No Touch Kitchen System

Lysol No Touch Kitchen System

 

When I was offered a chance to try out the Lysol No Touch Kitchen System I was pretty neutral on the idea. “Eh…dish soap,” I thought. But when I mentioned it to my germaphobe husband he was intrigued so I decided to check it out.

The No Touch Kitchen System is designed to serve three purposes: dish washing, hand washing and surface washing. It does a good job of accomplishing all three. The coolest part is that it dispenses soap when you wave your hand under the spout — similar to the dispensers you may have encountered in public bathrooms. Augie in particular loves these dispensers (he calls them “robot soap”) so this has been a big hit with him. We used the system for about a week and a half before I sat down to review it and this is what I found:

 

Pros:

  • My kids really want to wash their hands. Really, really, really! I used to have to nag them to wash their hands. Now I have to nag them to stop washing their hands.
  • I love being able to wash my hands without touching the soap dispenser. This is particularly handy after I’ve been handling raw chicken or something equally nasty.
  • The soap itself works well and it bubbles up nicely.
  • I love that this soap dispenser takes the place of two others (hand soap and dish soap) next to the sink.

Cons:

  • The dispenser spits out too much soap — about twice as much as I normally use. I found that we ran through the bottle of soap that came with the dispenser really fast (in just over a week) and it also makes it difficult to completely rinse your hands when you wash them.
  • The refills are pricey. The 8.5 oz refills cost about $3.50-$4.00 depending on where you buy them. I normally pay about the same amount for twice as much soap.
  • The sensor is…well…sensitive. A few times when I was washing a big sink full of dishes I’d get too close to the sensor on the front and it would dispense soap when I didn’t want it to. Once it squirted out four doses before I could stop it and it was a pain to clean up. Annoying.

Want to see how savvy you are about kitchen germs? I took the Undercover Kitchen System Challenge on the Lysol web site and scored a 6 out of 8 points, so I’m not doing too badly, but there’s definitely room for improvement.
