I am now the proud owner of an Arbor with MotionSense kitchen faucet from Moen.
Now I know what you’re thinking. “Hands-free? Why do you need a hands-free faucet? What’s the big deal?” And I know that at least some of you are thinking that, because that’s exactly what I thought when I was given the chance to review one of the new Moen MotionSense faucets.
When I was presented with the opportunity to review this faucet, I was just finishing up my kitchen makeover, and a new faucet was one of the last things on my list that I needed for my “new” kitchen. So naturally, I jumped at the chance to get in on the free faucet action! But I honestly didn’t understand why a faucet needed to be “hands-free”, and I was convinced that I would never use that feature.
Well, y’all. Let me tell you, I’m a changed woman! (Ha! Too dramatic?) Okay, so maybe that’s a little overboard, but I absolutely LOVE this faucet. In fact, I love it so much that I’m either going to have it uninstalled so that I can take it with me to the new house when we move, OR I’m just going to get another one for the house. But either way, now that I’ve gone hands-free, I won’t…I can’t…go back. Seriously.
The MotionSense faucet has two different sensors on it. The one on the front of the faucet is the “ready sensor”. This is the one I use the most. It’s so unbelievably convenient that I can’t imagine being without it now!
That sensor turns the water on when your hands (or anything else) are placed in the sensing zone, and the water turns off automatically when you remove your hands (or other item) from the sensing zone.
Just imagine how convenient and efficient that is! Imagine that you’re in the kitchen, wrist-deep in raw chicken as you’re making dinner. When you’re ready to wash your hands, wouldn’t it be great to just be able to stick your hands under the faucet and have the water come on automatically, rather than spreading that gross chicken juice to your faucet handle?! Of course, that’s what you have to do with a standard faucet, but with this hands-free faucet, you handle can stay clean and germ-free!
I can pretty much assure you that you’ll love the convenience of this feature!!
Then there’s another sensor on top. This one is the “wave sensor”.
To use that sensor, you simply wave your hand over it in one direction to turn the water on, and then when you’re ready to turn the water off, you wave your hand over it on one direction again.
And then, of course, you can use the handle to turn the water on and off, just like a standard faucet.
It’s amazing, right? And the Moen MotionSense is a true hands-free faucet. There are some other faucets on the market that are called “hands-free”, but they still rely on touch to turn the water on. The MotionSense relies only on motion. If you’re intrigued, you can check out product details and locations to purchase by clicking here.
