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!
