The Kitchen Sink + $100 Visa Giveaway!

We planned to remodel our kitchen this year but had to put things on hold with a new baby in the mix :). Instead, we’re focusing on making small changes to improve the look and functionality of our kitchen. When Moen asked us to review this new faucet, we didn’t have to think twice.
We knew that this was exactly the kind of update we needed to modernize the look of the busiest spot in our home: the kitchen sink. Did I mention this faucet has MotionSense™ technology? It makes my humble kitchen feel so fancy! 🙂 We’ve had a Moen faucet for the past 8 years and decided it was time for an update. We really wanted to stay with the same brand since we’ve been so pleased with Moen. You see, a few years back, when we needed a part replaced, we contacted Moen. Their lifetime warranty and customer service is unmatched. They are, after all, the #1 faucet brand in North America.
The Old Faucet:
Cons: Lots of separate bases and crevices to keep clean, and the sprayer hose sometimes needed to be finagled back into its spot.
And it was always a struggle for our son to reach the handle to wash his hands, as evidenced here:
My engineers :). Taking out the old faucet seemed to take more time than putting in the new one. The installation instructions were clear and there was even a video on YouTube showing exactly how to install it.
What we LOVE about this new faucet:
(1) The hands-free convenience of Moen’s MotionSense™ technology.
Now I’m dreaming about this technology for our bathroom faucets, which would be a dream-come-true for a germaphobe like myself. Thankfully they also have bathroom faucets… and shower heads and even sinks!
The only “downside” to MotionSense™ technology is that not everyone has it. I visited my sister’s house the other day and put my hands under the faucet waiting for it to turn on, but it never did ;). You can also disable your MotionSense™ for guests who aren’t used to using it, but wouldn’t it be a lot more fun to watch their surprise when the faucet turns on by itself?
(2) It’s perdy.
I catch myself staring at it. I love the beautiful high arch which also makes it easy to get large pots and cutting boards under it.
(3) The self-retracting hose.
No more fighting with the sprayer. It smoothly docks back into place from any distance or angle. It puts itself away :). It’s also very easy to maneuver and I love that there are buttons on the spout to control the sprayer.
Now, for the $100 question!

A very informative blog on kitchen faucets installation and how can we use it’s sensor.
Moen is the best faucet brand. Its faucets not only work perfectly but also makes our kitchen attractive and eye-catching.
this post helps me a lot in selecting the best faucet for me.
thanks for providing such great knowledge in such an amazing way.
You’re welcome! Glad this article helped you.
I love the beautiful high arch which also makes it easy to get large pots and cutting boards under it. The design is very stylish indeed. Love the idea of a motion-activated faucet.
A new faucet in my kitchen would be amazing! Thank you for this giveaway
Natasha is doing really good work!

Loved your new faucets installation. This hoose system faucets are really quite useful and handy in your daily kitchen curriculum. Hope you also enjoyed it as i did. Thanks for sharing this post. Loved your content writing technique. This is really engaging with me at first attempt.
I loved Danze Single Handle Kitchen Faucet. I guess it’s best in the business. My grandma always says what a lovely faucets while she try to wash her hands.
And grandma, i guess you always right.
LOL! Thanks for sharing Sarah 🙂
Its epic but a lovely story to me. And sarah i guess lots of family have that kind of mentor.
Thank you! What a timely article. I’m moving into a new apartment next month and am going to replace the gross faucets with my own.
The Moen faucet with MotionSense technology is in my opinion the best faucet with touchless technology. Great choice!
Hi Josh! I agree. We love it. 🙂
I am really interested in kitchen materials like faucet , sink. After many researches and read reviews I decided Delta faucet.Has been installed for a month and so far no issues. Looks great and our plumber said we chose a great brand and style, I bought it on http://www.fauceta.com/ and they send me all I nedd.
The sink looks and sounds great! We really need a new sink, ours is old, leaks a little and has some of the shiny finish worn off in areas.
We need to remodel our kitchen….but….it gets pushed back….madebe next year, maybe next year.
A sleek new Moen faucet would be a start to bring my kitchen into this century. To have a faucet with a sprayer would be so awesome.
I would love to have this faucet. Would keep from cross contamination when i have raw meat on my hands. Plus it would give me more room for my stockpots to wash.
I would love to win this giveaway because I have been wanting a new faucet in our house for the longest time ever! Ours is so old and so broken already I catch my self losing patience just trying to use it. This would be perfect!
We are building a house and a Moen faucet would be awesome 🙂
Our house was built in 1978…we have the original faucet in our kitchen and a new, modern and updated one would really change the look. Now I need to work on those cabinets, floors, walls…lol
What a cool feature that is MotionSense, I never knew there’s such a thing. It would definitely be sooo nice and convenient especially washing my baby girls hands after a meal!!!
It would make my kitchen sparkle!
Thank you for an awesome giveaway! I’ve always wanted one of these because my current faucet is too strong and dated-looking. This is beautiful, I agree. I love your blog!!!
This faucet would definitely update my kitchen! Plus, I think it’s just more sanitary.
I love to add new things to my kitchen, still belive kitchen is a core room of any house:)
I live in an aging mobile home and new look in my kitchen would change my whole attitude toward this house. As you know, the kitchen is the heart and I am unable to afford an upgrade myself this would be wonderful
I LOVE the new Moen faucet especially the new one (free hands). Really can use ………….. I can’t imagine my kitchen with new faucet. Would be nice ts have one.
Would love to upgrade mine and really like that it’s motion sensor!!!!
I live in a rented duplex so everything here is quite outdated… My kitchen faucet is quite old and I can’t even use the retractable hose because it won’t go back in properly. This would definitely make everything nicer!
It would be so much easier to put large items into my sink, right now I have to move my faucet to the side whenever I put large pans into the sink
A new faucet in my kitchen would be amazing! Thank you for this giveaway 🙂
We are planning on remodeling our kitchen in the near future and having this kitchen faucet would be the perfect way to kick-off our new kitchen!
Could really use a new facet right now because mine just started leaking.
The faucet looks amazing. Motion sensing does give an edge when your hands are all messed up and you want to wash them. Will definitely be very useful!
Ahhh, the beauty of sleek new faucets. This beauty would bring my kitchen out of the 20th century into the 21st and would make my life easier. I love the idea of having a motion faucet in my kitchen!!!
P.S. You look lovely, Natasha.
I have been saving for one of these faucets for a long time
I would love this faucet. The one I have is low to the sink and there is no room to wash large pans.
Sure need a new faucet in my kitchen.
i think it would give it a more upscale look and improve functionality
I also tweeted! https://twitter.com/HerCupofJoy/status/603587044506521601
I am embarassed to admit that my kitchen sink has been leaking at the top. I would love this new touch-less one!
Would defiantly perk up my kitchen! love it!
It would our kitchen look more up-to-date! Also it would be great to have one with a retractable hose.
Hi, well for me it would be a dream come true on a new level. My son has been diagnosed with a Mitochondrial Disease, Leigh’s Syndrome. He no longer walks or stands without support, and washing his hands before dinner can be difficult, as simple as it sounds, it’s not simple anymore. He is getting heavy and lifting him is difficult and even with a chair by the sink, he is not always able to stand so this hands free faucet would be amazing….and on the days he can stand he can play with the water…I just know he would love it! 🙂 Anyways I’m not a good writer. But I know it would be pretty awesome to have this faucet from Moen.
A new faucet would change our lives! The one in my kitchen doesn’t event turn from side to side and it’s such a pain to wash dishes that way. We want to re-do our kitchen in 2 to 5 years and this would be huge holdover until then.
Wow! How cool! I want it!
This would be perfect for me since my faucet is quite old.
It looks really nice, I would live to have it. Thanks
I would love to remodel my kitchen…an awesome faucet from Moen would be a great first step. 🙂 Thanks!
What a beautiful faucet! I would love a motion sensor faucet in my kitchen especially when handling raw meat. Also my two little boys cannot reach the handle on our current one, so the motion sensor would be awesome for them.
It’s really pretty, hope to win:)
We are planning remodel our kitchen so this would be perfect timing! I love the high arch which would help with the big pots!
This will be my be kitchen helper! Thank you for the apportunity to win it! <3
It would definitely change our kitchen since everything’s kinda old, and when we moved two years ago in this house we didn’t got the chance to change anything in our kitchen
This faucet would make it so much easier to fill tall pitchers. I have an ‘old fashioned’ kitchen faucet and now I have to turn the pitcher sideways to get the water in it. And the pull out spout would really make it easier to wash those odd sized platters and pots that don’t really fir into the sink well And I may actually be able to wash these without ending up with more water on me and the floor than in the sink.
I really dislike our current kitchen faucet and would absolutely love having this high arc motion sense one. It would make my job so much easier.
This faucet would be amazing for our family. Our kids always struggle with reaching our old school handles and constantly look for stool to step on to reach it. Read through all Moen products and they all are very good quality so even the 100$ gift would help so much with getting one of these! Cannot wait to find out who wins!!
It would all kinds of functionality to my kitchen. I don’t even have a sprayer on my sink now.
Not only would a new Moen faucet modernize my kitchen, but I would become more productive because of it (for now constantly fighting with the current crappy faucet and retractable spray hose that just cuts the water off when it bends, etc)
My wife would be so thrilled to win this. She has been begging for a new faucet but with a new baby and her going to school we just can’t afford to replace our old drippy facet. This would be God sent
This faucet would make me life a paradise. We live in a tiny place with a tiny kitchen and with a faucet like this I will be in kitchen heaven.
This faucet will make my kitchen look fancy and it will serve with great purpose for washing fruits/veggies/food and dishes! 😀
I LOVE this faucet!!!!! Our house is only 12 years old, but the faucet is a fright. I love to cook and bake, so my sink is ALWAYS busy. OHHHHHHH I want this new faucet!!! Thanks for the chance to win this!!
Motion activated faucet, TOTALLY AWESOME! For all those times that you’re up to your elbows in either ground meat mixture, dough, or some other icky stuff and don’t want to touch anything, but need to get you hands clean. Would really help in these moments!
This faucet would definitely improve my kitchen. With so many activities going on in there, the faucet would only make life easier.
Having this type of faucet would be fabulous! I love the hands free feature; it would be so convenient while I am cooking.
Thanks for the chance to win!

I really need a faucet upgrade! Please pick me! (Plus, I’ll be in Russia on a medical mission trip when the sweepstake ends, so it would be a nice treat to come home to!)
It would update my kitchen. I have a really old facet.
I would love to have this faucet in my kitchen! I know I spread germs all over my kitchen because after I cut something, namely chicken, and I need to wash my hands I have to touch the faucet. If I had this faucet that wouldn’t a problem. In the name of health- choose me for this giveaway!
I would love the faucet for washing big things cuz mine is very low.
I spend lot of time in the kitchen. Moen faucet would help me to be more productive and get things done quicker. Also, my 3 lil kids would be able to reach instead of waiting for mama tough them up to wash their hands. And I love the hose sprayer….
We are getting a whole new kitchen and it would look great there
Currently or faucet is a bit leaky and a sensor faucet would make life easier. Like seriously for those of us that live in our kitchens this faucet would be a great upgrade.
My present faucet is leaking and this Moen faucet would be a fantastic replacement. I installed a pull out Moen faucet in my previous home and loved it. Great product!
A new faucet would make my kitchen look so much nicer.
A beautiful sleek new faucet would be a great start to the remodel I am planning.
How nice! I didn’t even know the motion sense was an option in a kitchen sink!
Oh my, I do need a new kitchen faucet. Would love to win,
This would allow me to have a cleaner more modern kitchen.
I live in an apartment, so I can only dream of these kinds of things for now =) but ahhhhhh that would be so nice! So much less hassle! And yes! more space to be able to wash the bigger pots and such would be amazing haha. I’ll go pout over our little kitchen sink now.
It would be AHmazing to win…..
Just bought a new house and remodeling on a budget. This would be wonderful
Would love to have a new faucet for the family!
This faucet would be ideal for my kitchen. I’ve been struggling for a while with a small one. Would love to ugrade!
It would bring my sink area more modern look. Our faucet is still from the early 90s :).
This faucet would be a great update to my kitchen.
I love the thought of the hands free technology. I hate touching anything after I just handled raw meat (especially chicken). This would look wonderful in my kitchen. It is very “purdy” 🙂
It would make my kitchen look more modern
A sleek new faucet would be a wonderful new addition to our kitchen. The current faucet is a single handle style that makes filling large pots a pain.
I also tweeted the giveaway. https://twitter.com/miss_veroniqu3/status/598415105194381312
My current faucet leaks and spray all over the place. This one seems like a beauty!! I’ll have to look into this brand. Thanks for posting!!
Moen is the leading brand for faucets hands down! And Natashaskitchen.com best website for recipe ideas.. Also hands down!! LOL thank you for this opportunity. God bless!
I have used this faucet before at my last workplace, and I loved it! I love how easy it is to switch from normal water flow to spraying and how easily the hose can come out and go back in. It also looks very sleek and not only would make washing dishes easier, but would make my kitchen look much nicer as well.
This faucet will look so nice in “MY humbled kitchen”. We bought ours about 8 years ago and it was the cheapest one we could find. It will come in very handy because i like to be in the kitchen cooking and baking. Guess who has to do the dishes? Me The part i dont like about my faucet is when i have to work with meat and contaminate my faucet. I also have a little one that could benefit from this faucet as she learns to help mommy. Thank you for the opportunity to win something like this. Have a blessed day!
Oh, this is so neat! I think with my five little kids this faucet would be so cool as the 2 of my boys can’t reach fully to turn the water on and it’s also probably so nice when u have those dirty “sticky” hands you don’t need to be bothering cleaning the faucet afterwards…I have to look into this idea when we will be remodeling our home:)) thank you for your awesome site:))
I would LOVE a new faucet! Ours is too small for our sink and sprays all over the counter when I rinse something underneath it :/
This Moen faucet would be great in our kitchen not only because our current one is leaking!!… but also because the style would match perfectly with our newly remodeled kitchen!! For some reason our sink faucet was one of the few things we did not change when our kitchen was remodeled, and with my constant cooking and baking the wear and tear is becoming painfully obvious!! A new faucet would be so awesome !!
A sleek new faucet from Moen would change my kitchen tremendously because my sink is built into my island; which is the main focal point of my open floor plan! A fancy new faucet would really make a statement!
Tweeted it https://mobile.twitter.com/yanalyfar/status/597949659152130048
My faucet is due for an upgrade so this would be a big change and step up in my kitchen, and it would literally make EVERYTHING so much easier
We’re building a new house and we are almost ready for the kitchen, so this faucet would totally complement the new kitchen : ) Thanks
A new faucet would be phenomenal. The one currently installed sits low to the sink and doesn’t have a long reach for the sprayer. This would enable the children and I to more efficiently manage chores and cooking!
great ideas for potential replacement of our awful dripping, temperamental faucet.
I would love this new faucet and no touch technology, I wouldn’t have to worry about germs after handling raw meat.
This faucet looks so comfortable to use, I would love it if I had one!
a Moen Faucet would make my kitchen nicer looking and make doing dishes more enjoyable.
Would love a pull out spray. I could sit my heavy pan on the counter to fill with water
My kicthen totally needs a facelift, a new faucet would help brighten the room
Wow, Luv this new sensor faucet! Dont have a Moen, So would luv to have this new one, the high faucet would definatly help my pregnancy aching back! And would be easy for my 3 kids to wash their hands, instead of using a stepstool to reach the faucet handles, that I am always tripping over 🙁
I think the convenience on the kitchen , and beautyyy……wish to have..Thank you for chance..and Happy mothers day Natasha and all ladies..
Who would have thought faucets could be so complicsting lol…After seeing your installed faucet I went and researched Moen products- just wow! Such great quality products with so many features! This will definitely be the eye catcher in our kitchen. Would definitely love to win the gift card to buy a faucet like yours Natasha! Thank you for this opportunity!
It would make things easier to just put hands under faucet and tadaa!
Wow, I did not even know about this faucet! How cool!
We just got a new place and are in the process of fixing it up hoping to move in by fall. I spend 75% of my time in the kitchen therefore a great faucet is a must have! Would love to win.
I was thinking about this type of faucet for a while, it looks great and I wouldnt get the faucet dirty while cooking. I want one in my home to complete my kitchen.
I love the self retracting hose!! We are remodeling the house we will move into soon and this faucet is lovely!
