So if you are looking to upgrade your soap bottle, here are our top recommendations for the best automatic soap dispensers. Let’s take a look. But first,
1. Secura Premium Touchless Soap Dispenser
The Secure Premium soap dispenser has a large capacity which removes the hassle of refilling it frequently. It houses an infrared sensor inside that can sense hands about 2-inches away. The good thing is that you can adjust the volume of the liquid to dispense to avoid wastage. Plus, you can also switch it off when not required.
About 4 AA batteries power this soap dispenser. It works on most soap types including ones from popular companies like Bath and Body Works, Dial, etc. However, it doesn’t work as expected with the gel variant.
Users love its easy motion detection and simple nature. However, it tends to leak liquid soap, and several users have noted this in their reviews. At the same time, it’s may not be as durable if you move it around a lot.
2. QOSDA Automatic Soap Dispenser
One of the first things you will notice about the QOSDA automatic soap dispenser is its unique shape. This one is shaped like a stout and is sure to uplift the look of your kitchen sink. The wooden finish gives it an elegant look. You’ll need to fill it up with soft liquid, and it works the magic once switched on.
Installation of this dispenser is easy and simple. It is affordable and works as advertised. However, it does away with functions like volume control of the soap or touch-based on/off switch.
If you want a stylish yet durable soap dispenser, you can’t go wrong with this one.
3. RileyKyi Soap Dispenser
Another automatic soap dispenser is the one by RileyKyi. It comes with metallic accents, if you like those kind of devices, in your powder room or kitchen. Apart from that, it brings the best of both worlds as it is affordable and functions effortlessly.
It’s easy to operate. All the controls are at the top, and you merely have to switch it on, adjust the volume after filling it up with soap liquid. It’s durable with the stainless steel exterior and is also easy to clean.
Finally, it’s compatible with most soft soap liquids. However, it doesn’t dispense foam.
4. Allegro Foaming Soap Dispenser
The Allegro soap dispenser is in the same price bracket as the one above. It sports a chic modern design and will likely attract its share of looks. It works with any foaming soap. As long as you mix it in a ratio of 1:5 soap and water, you will be in the safe. The highlight of this device is the sensitive motion sensor, and several users have praised the sensitivity in their reviews.

So far, it has managed to rake in decent reviews. People love it for its style, simple function, and sensitive sensor. However, the battery life is not satisfactory. On the upside, the customer service is very responsive and is quick to respond to people’s queries and questions.
5. Xiaomi Mijia Automatic Hand Washer
Xiaomi’s soap dispenser boasts a clean design. There’s no edgy curve or stainless steel exterior. Instead, it has a clean design that blends easily into most bathrooms and kitchens. The on/off button is a touch-based button is at the top. You just have to tap it to switch the dispenser off.
It works as expected. We have been using this dispenser for 2 years now, and it has managed to function without any hiccups. It will duly warn you if it has any stuck debris or foam. The only drawback is that it uses the company’s foaming liquid. However, we have managed to swap it out for Bath and Body Work’s liquid soap. Do note that changing the liquid is no easy task.
There are no fancy features like volume customization. But the default volume is more than sufficient and gets the job done. In the two years that we have used the Xiaomi Liquid Soap Dispenser, we have had no issues with spills or the motion sensor. Like the ones above, it runs on AA batteries.
6. simplehuman Touch-Free Sensor Liquid Soap Dispenser
Another automatic soap dispenser that you can buy is the one by SimpleHuman. It sports a modern look with a mix of steel and silicon. Like most of the devices in this list, you can adjust the volume of the dispensed liquid with a bottom.
The company recommends liquid from its stable. However, as long as you mix the soap and water in the right proportions, you can use any soap liquid to go with it.
It’s a popular automatic soap dispensing device on Amazon and has more than a thousand reviews. Users love its sensitive sensor and the build quality. Though it appears durable, it’s unlikely to last you years. If you do not mind spending a few bucks just for the looks, you may consider this one.
There are two types of dispensers—one that churns out the soap and the other that dispenses foam. When choosing the latter, you have to keep in mind to mix the water in the right proportions. Or else, you might end up with a watery solution.
At present, soap dispensers are not one of the most durable devices that can easily last you up to 3 years with proper up keep.
