I don’t know about you, but I have never had a “nice” faucet. As a matter of fact, it wasn’t something I really even thought much about until my faucet started springing leaks and shooting all over the kitchen. I tried to “fix” it with duct tape, but alas, that was a short-lived solution. :-)
Since I was forced to replace that faucet, I chose to go with a tall, retractable faucet. It was a generic model I bought at Home Depot for less than a hundred dollars, but compared to my old, leaky faucet, it was amazing! Just the fact that it was tall and could accommodate large pots and pans was terrific. The retractable option was super nice as well. I figured faucets didn’t GET any better than this! That was until the nice people at Moen asked me to review their new Moen Arbor with MotionSense faucet!
While this faucet is almost identical in LOOKS to my old/new faucet, it is lightyears ahead in technology. It’s almost scary the way it can “read your mind” when it comes to your sink and water needs. :-) Allow me to explain!
The MotionSense faucet has sensors built in the top and the front that when your hand (or a nasty pan) passes in front of it will automatically turn on.
The sensor on the FRONT of the faucet will trigger the faucet to turn on when you put your hands in front of it for a quick wash, and immediately turn OFF when you move your hands away. It’s super convenient when you are cooking and have icky ingredients all over your hands! A note of caution: as NICE as this feature is, at the same time it takes some getting used to!
The sensor on the TOP of the faucet is a bit different, but equally cool! All you have to do with this one is wave your hand over it to turn it on and it will STAY ON until you wave again to turn it off. You can also set the temperature you want the water to be at as well. I like mine at a “slightly warm, but not too warm” setting and after only a couple of adjustments, it was perfect!
Now that I have the MotionSense in my life, I just want to spend all day washing dishes!
Haha! THAT is a lie! But I am being completely HONEST when I say this faucet has actually had a big impact on our family’s day-to-day life. The convenience of “hands-free” can really only be appreciated after you use it. We’ve only had it a couple of weeks and we are SOLD. Convenient, easy to use, and did I mention it LOOKS GREAT!? We chose the Spot Resist Stainless finish which resists fingerprints and water spots and easily wipes clean. Basically kitchen heaven! Click here to check out product details and where to buy.
