Pfister Stellan faucet is slightly bigger than an average kitchen faucet. It has a height of 16-3/8 inches and can reach up to 9 inches. It comes with a decorative deck plate but it is optional for installation.

Sensors

Pfister Stellan touchless faucet comes with a single sensor that is located on its base. It can detect movements up to a distance of 3 inches. This may seem too little but it helps to avoid any accidental triggering of the faucet.

It also has an auto-shutoff feature which turns off the faucet after 2 minutes without any manual/sensor input. So in case, you forgot to turn it OFF, don’t worry.

If you prefer only manual operation you can turn off the sensor twisting a small knob located on its control unit.

Spout, handle, spray modes

This touchless faucet comes with a pull-down spray head. In addition, you can switch between regular stream and a more powerful rinse mode by using two small buttons located on the spout head.

Once you release the pulldown spray head, it auto retracts to its original position. The spout head uses AccuDock technology which is a mechanism combining spring-loaded arms to hold this spray head firmly in position.

In addition, the handle on this faucet allows you to set the rate of water flow as well as temperature. You can present the temperature using this handle and then every time you turn the faucet ON it will have this temperature. This is a forward-only handle so it is suitable for countertops with space constraints.

Power source

This Pfister touchless kitchen faucet uses direct 120 V AC power for working. You can also buy a 4 AA battery pack as a backup incase of any power failure.

Looks, finish & warranty

To my eyes the Pfister Stellen faucet looks better than many others. But, as I always say, looks are subjective. The faucet is made of high quality materials and is available in Matte Black, Polished Chrome and Stainless Steel finishes.

The faucet is covered under a lifetime warranty.
