A Faucet That Can Think for Itself (Almost)
Okay, I may be overstating the case a bit, but not by as much as you might think. In my line of work I meet a lot of people that are looking for a kitchen faucet that goes the extra mile in some way. They may want the best in style or functionality, or they may love the thought of having a faucet that uses the most cutting-edge technology available.
My point is that nowadays faucets have become much more than a simple tool you connect to your plumbing to get hot and cold running water.
Smart manufacturers know that they can make more money if they pay attention to what their customers want. One company that takes customer feedback to heart is Moen, and you can see the result of this approach in the Moen 7594ESRS Arbor MotionSense faucet.
As far as I’m concerned, this kitchen faucet has everything you’re likely to want, and in this review I’ll go into some of the details about how this faucet can make your time in the kitchen healthier and easier.
You can get this faucet in three different colors: chrome, oil-rubbed bronze and spot-resistant stainless steel. So you can see that finding a finish that suits your décor will be easy. But what’s the overall shape and design like? This is a pull-down model with a high-arced spout and stylishly designed handle. Yes, this is a one-handled faucet, so you’ll be able to adjust the flow and temperature easily with one hand. The ergonomic design of this model makes it feel as good as it looks.
The spout’s height is 15.9 inches, which is great for filling your biggest pots and pans, and the braided pull-down hose is an impressive 68 inches long, making even the hardest rinsing and cleaning tasks easy.
All in all, this faucet’s design can add a little class to almost any kitchen, whatever color you go decide to go with.
The Best Part – Features
You’re going to love this part. This is a model that really has all of the bells and whistles you could ever want. Let’s get started by talking about the feature you most likely want to hear about: MotionSense technology. The manufacturer has given this faucet the ability to “know” what you’re asking it to do with just a wave of your hand. You can see how much easier your tasks at the kitchen will be, and you won’t spread as many harmful germs around (which is great when you have raw chicken all over your hands!)
The faucet can be used in three different ways.
- Firstly, there’s a sensor on top that will stop or start the flow if you wave your hand above it.
- Secondly, a ready sensor notices if you put a cup or your hands under the spout. The movement activates the flow of water, and it shuts off automatically as soon as you remove your hand from it.
- You may be wondering at this point, what the third option is? That’s why you still have the handle. You can use it to adjust the water temperature manually, as well as the amount of water flow from the faucet.
Moen has really gone the extra mile with its pull-down feature. After listening to customers’ requests and concerns, the manufacturer responded with an amazingly user-friendly spray wand that gives you lots of options.
It’s easy to move the wand to wherever you need it, If you’re filling pans or pots on the countertop at some distance from your sink, there’s a pause button to stop water from spraying all over the place when you go back to the sink. When you’re done with the spray wand, it knows the way home. Just let go of it and it returns to its resting position at the spout automatically.
Another great feature of this faucet is spot resist. The materials used in manufacturing won’t collect fingerprints, and you won’t get water spots even if your water is hard. Fewer spots and fingerprints mean that you won’t need to clean the faucet as often to keep it looking good.
Installing this kitchen faucet couldn’t be easier. With Moen’s Hydrolock system, you just need to snap the water lines into place without needing extra tools.
You can see that I’m a big fan of this model, and I can’t say enough good things about it. But if you’d rather see what other people are saying, head over to Amazon to look at the many positive reviews from happy customers. You might get a discount on the price too!
