Check Out My New Hands-Free Kitchen Faucet!


I am now the proud owner of an Arbor with MotionSense kitchen faucet from Moen.

Moen Motionsense hands free kitchen faucet

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.

Moen Motionsense hands free faucet

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”.

Moen MotionSense hands free faucet

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.

  1. I love the idea of a hands free faucet in my kitchen! I think it would be very handy not only when your hands are sticky or icky, but just when they are full and you don’t want to put anything down to turn on the faucet. I have this issue with rinsing pasta with a heavy pasta pot fresh from boiling. I have to turn the water on and then walk to my stove and back with the pot unless I want to set it down and risk damaging the sink or counter while I turn on the water. I think I would be a convert like you!

  2. My boyfriend and I do a lot of cooking at home for ourselves. As such, and the fact that he knows how to make just about EVERYthing, he’s always getting himself dirty and making a mess. Whether it’s chicken, pork, beef, sausage, etc he will dive in with both hands and just mix everything without using spoons. Then, when he’s ready to wash his hands, he has to turn the water on with his nasty, icky hands..and that means I get to clean it off later as a lot of the time he cooks when I’m not home or able to help him out. Heck, even when I help him, he convinces me to get my own hands dirty right before he wants to clean his hands so there’s no clean hands to turn on the faucet!! Such a mess!! Having one of these types of faucet would be a dream as it would make it soooo much easier to get my guy’s hands clean (and mine) and keep a cleaner home!

  3. With a sticky seven year old, and only two hands to handle my own messes – this would be perfect for our kitchen!! I’m definitely going to have to purchase one of these! Thanks for the review!!

  4. Would Love, Love, Love a faucet like this. I actually participated in a focus group that got to use faucets like this once before they were on the market (it was another company, so I won’t mention their name 🙂 and I loved using them. I just haven’t invested in one for myself!!

  5. Having this wonderful faucet would work so well when handling meat or any kind of raw food. You would not be contaminating the facet handles.

  6. Ooooh not only is it pretty but so functional! Just last night as I was chopping peaches and strawberries for a fruit salad I thought how mice it would be to just stick my hands under the faucet to rinse them between jobs! This is on my must buy list for our home too!=D

  7. I’m a total germaphobe & I’m in love with the sensor! My kids are forgetful and I also appreciate how it turns itself off.

    mami2jcn at gmail dot com

  8. Wow, that’s a really cool (and pretty!) faucet! I am an artist and I have paint on my hands…most of the time. I also do a lot of crafting and at any given moment could be coated with partially dried glue. I have marred a faucet handle or twenty in my day! LOL Being able to just reach toward the faucet and have it automatically being to flow is exciting!

    Because believe me, scraping dried paint out of faucet handle nooks and crannies is not a good time!

  9. I would love a hands free faucet. We do a lot of cooking, especially with raw meat. It would make our lives so much easier, and less germy, if we had a sink that was hands free!

  10. I’ve been wanting one of these forever! So many times when preparing food I wish I had a hands free faucet. Glad you’re enjoying it, also it’s nice looking!

  11. I love to paint! This faucet would be awesome because I wouldn’t have to get paint all over my sink anymore when I am trying to wash my hands.

  12. Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us. As I know there are others out there that could benefit more from something like this, I am very thankful that they have come out with one that doesn’t require the “touch” to turn on “handsfree” my 4yr old has aspergers and sensory issues, he has no problem washing his hands when in a public bathroom that has these type of faucets. At home he hates to touch the faucet at all so it turns into a battle as he might have to wait until I am done doing something to turn it on and he has a melt down or just refuses. So def will be purchasing on of these in the future. Thank you for sharing all that you do. It helps in more ways than just decorating and DIY. Everyday life for us in this OH household 🙂

  13. I would love this faucet, especially for washing up after meat, as you mentioned. I cook a lot but dread cutting meat because of the washing up after. A handsfree would just make this process a little more enjoyable. 🙂

  14. The first thing that comes to mind is how wonderful it would be to not have to contaminate the faucet handle turning on the water…I disenfect like Crazy when I am preparing raw meats, particularly raw chicken, and I think about all the germs that fester on the faucet handle. Not to mention the germs in general from every day use. If you’re turning on a faucet to wash your DIRTY hands, then you’re turning on the faucet, with all those dirty hand germs, to fill up a glass of water to drink. Ewww! I’ll be renovating my kithcen soon, and I would LOVE to have one of these faucets with my pretty new Stainless steel sink 🙂

  15. Just think of every public restroom you go to these days—they all have them. But it would be very handy at home! Love all the things you’ve done to your condo lately!

  16. My husband is the chief cook in our house, and he’s a disaster when it comes to cleanliness. I try to follow him around with Chlorox wipes, but this would go a long way toward keeping chicken juice and meat scraps off the faucet.

  17. We replaced our faucet a year ago and I’m regretting it so I would love a new faucet. My little girls love to wash dishes but it makes me cringe sometimes to see how much water they waste so this will make everyone happier.

  18. That would be perfect when my hands are wrist deep in a bowl of hamburger meat making meatloaf! Plus I’ve had the same inexpensive faucet since we built our house and it would be nice to have an upgrade! BTW, love your blog. Don’t comment much, but visit often. I once asked you if you needed an assistant since I’m a fellow Texan. Too bad you’re in Waco and I’m in Dallas. Would love to learn from the best!!

  19. I am intrigued by the idea of a hands-free faucet! i often have messy, germy things on my hands such as raw meat and dough and would love to start washing without passing on the mess to my faucet!

  20. This is such a smart idea, I never understood the reason for the “tap” faucet. This one makes so much more sense, if not for the raw chicken issue alone!

  21. Motion sense is the best invention- kids always forget or not turn off the faucet completely, this is the perfect solution to my family.

  22. This would be so absolutely fabulous. I do a lot of bulk buying and then repackaging of meats and the sort, and this would really help me keep my kitchen much cleaner and help with cross-contamination prevention.

  23. I have two young sons with an amazing ability to create mess, this faucet would make my life so much easier due to its ready sensor! Its difficult to hold two toddlers and turn on a faucet so I cannot imagine how amazing this would be!

  24. Okay, now that’s awesome! I just made cookies and had dough all over my hands and doughed up my faucet, and then I see this and realize how interconnected everything is. 🙂 I think I was supposed to see this! 🙂 Sharon

  25. I would love to have this faucet! In addition to the whole raw chicken thing, it would also be great for just rinsing the soap off your hands without getting it on the faucet.
    The way it is mounted is exactly the way my current (leaky) faucet is mounted, so it would be pretty easy to change out. I love it!

  26. What a help when making dinner and touching poultry. This way I would not have to get the knobs dirty. It would be more sanitary. It would be a great help too for those who have colds so that when you want to wash hands that the germs do not get the surface of the knobs either.

  27. Thank you for your recommendation of this product. We’ve seen them advertised and wondered if they work well or not. Many times, while preparing food, I’ve wished I had this kind of faucet to wash messy hands or food. Also, since you love it so much, I think you should take it with you to your new home!

  28. I desperately need a new faucet for my kitchen and wasn’t sure which direction to go in. Looks like I have found my perfect faucet. I would love it to fill large pans

  29. This is going to seem ridiculous, but obviously it’d be great for cooking, but the best part is that I’m sure it wouldn’t take long for my cats to realize they can get water on demand and quit doing things like trying to jump in the shower as I’m trying to get out. And best of all, unlike the cats who learn to use the handles, when they left, the water would stop flowing!

  30. Sometimes…just sometimes the hubby uses his ubber strong grip to tighten the faucets too tight when he turns them off, so tight that I can’t turn them on. With this motion sensor model he wouldn’t even need to touch it. Win Win.

  31. This sink is SO perfect for me! Why? I’m a freak. Yep, that’s right, a germ freak. I avoid cooking chicken as much as possible because I don’t want to take the time to disinfect the ENTIRE kitchen, especially the faucet!

  32. Between staying home with a 2&3 yr old + 2- 10 week puppies, I am washing my hands constantly. Hands free will keep germs at a minimum which I really like. No yuckiness on the handles! I loooove your counter tops! Oh my!!!

  33. The sensor is a great function that would save on a lot of faucet cleaning! And with flu season in full force, the less surfaces we touch the better!

  34. I cook a lot and frequently have raw meat on my hands. I also buy meat in bulk and package it in smaller sizes. Raw meat is yuck!

  35. Love it. I have an extremely messy boy that I am constantly dragging to the kitchen sink, and wrangling the faucet on for…this would be sweet!

  36. With all the flu and cold bugs going around, I think this is an ideal solution to germy hands touching the faucet… and chicken hands, too, of course!

  37. Love the idea! Am about to embark on a kitchen remodel myself, and I didn’t know anything like this existed for residential. Will definitely have to check these out! Thanks for the post!

  38. A hands free faucet? I LOVE it, especially when it comes to handling raw meat and chicken! You must be loving it … I know I would be! It’s a great addition to your beautiful kitchen, for sure! Lucky!

  39. I’m ashamed to say that I am a germaphobe and this would make me feel less anxious about washing my hands and recontaminating!! I hate that feeling of washing and then having to turn off the faucet with clean hands!! I know, so sad, but true! 🙂

  40. With a 5, 4 and 2 year old in the house, this moen motionsense faucet would be great! They wouldn’t have to drag their little step to the kitchen sink every time they needed to wash their hands! And I wouldn’t have to touch a faucet handle when I’ve got nasty stuff on my hands!! Would love one of these!

  41. This faucet sounds like just the thing for the kitchen when I have “dirty” hands from either cooking or crafting. Would love to win this to see how much help it would be keeping the mess under control.

  42. I get messy when I cook. I knead bread, make biscuits, meatloaf and can toss pizza dough in the air. I love to make food from scratch and that means I am always using my hands and washing them. I also like to keep my faucet clean. The Moen not only would solve my messy hand issue easily but look good doing it. I hope I am able to purchase one soon. The gift card would make that happen.

  43. Would be great after kneading bread, bagels, etc.! No pasty flour on my faucet! And after painting my back hall – get a lot on me – no paint on my faucet! Oh this must seriously rock! (And my 2 y/o grandson would think I’m the coolest Nonna in the world!)

  44. This faucet would be fantastic not only for meal prep but for washing out paint brushes etc without leaving color reminders on the faucet handle.

  45. This faucet looks amazing. The only place I have ever seen automatic faucets has been in public washrooms (not a great place to hang out). It would be great not having to wash the faucets every time I finish washing my hands from handling yucky things.

  46. Oh my! This is my new dream faucet! And I love Moen faucets too!
    I’ve always wanted to wave a magic wand and have something wonderful happen. It would be especially nice when I’m cooking for greasy or floury hands.

    Thanks Kristi! I’m so glad you were blessed with the faucet, too! Yay!

  47. The raw chicken scenario was exactly what I was thinking about when I saw this faucet. There are so many times you get stuff on your hands while you’re cooking. This faucet would be extremely convenient and helpful.

  48. I would love a faucet that keeps the germs going down the drain and not on my faucet handles! This Moen faucet w/motion sensing ability fits the bill completely. This would be a plus in every home.

    Thank you for offering a chance to win one of these faucets.

  49. It is so pretty and the sensor feature would be great! The biggest reason that I can think of for getting one of these is that my husband is a bit OCD about water getting on our faucet and around the sink area. He is constantly wiping up the area. It would cut down on the amount of water that gets on the handles and therefore cut down on the paper towels that he goes through:)

  50. That would have been an awesome faucet to have had yesterday when I was dyeing some bleached mini trees pink and red for Valentine’s Day!! What a mess I made! I also dyed some wooden cocktail forks (the disposable kind) after I trimmed the “fork” end into a point. Now I have the cutest little pink arrows, too. Congrats on your new faucet, Kristi!

  51. I am currently doing lots of after school crafts with my 6 year old grand daughter and the clean up afterwards can be a nightmare! This particular faucet would take the nightmare away!

  52. Yes- for all the reasons you listed and more- this would be awesome! I once tried a friend’s faucet that they had rigged to a foot switch kind of like a sewing machine and it was so convenient! I like the wave feature on top of this one so that the water can stay on when you want it to.

  53. I’m always rushing to get dinner together at the last minute, being able to not touch the faucet so I can quickly wash after handling meat will help me keep from cross-contaminating in my hurry to have dinner ready.

  54. I love to bake, but I think I must be the messiest cook ever! My hands are always a mess – it would be so great to have the Moen MotionSense faucet to keep me and my sink so much cleaner!

  55. This faucet is wonderful and would be great for my family of 7! We always have gunk on our hands from cooking, projects, coming in from outside, diying and on and on. Also, since we are diying our own home I would love this in our new kitchen! Thanks for the chance to win!

  56. I think its perfect for the times when we are cooking and our hands are icky and germy from meats and stuff. perfect! Would love to win this.

  57. Lets just say I have two boys, one dog, two cats, and a messy cook of a husband! ‘Nough said? I need a MotioSense faucet.

  58. I have 4 kids, need I say more? Plus I am thinking that this “magic” faucet might actually inspire them to wash their hands a little more often, bonus for all!!

  59. It’s been on my wish list! Would be great for raw foods and when your hands are full of paint and paintbrushes.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  60. Oh my goodness, I am doing a kitchen makeover and looking at faucets. This one caught my eye and I’m so glad to read your comments! Would love to have a little help in purchasing this one 🙂

  61. If I had the motion sense faucet I wouldn’t have to disinfect the faucet handle everytime after I touch raw meat.

  62. Ohhhh where do I start. I need this faucet and here is why…I always seem to have paint on my hands or two or three paint brushes in my hands – makes it hard to turn on the faucet. We cook a lot of chicken and I can’t tough the stuff, but I notice that my husband gets a lot of “chicken juice” all over the place, because he’s reaching for the faucet handle with chicken in his hands! Ick. Also, for some reason he’s like a five year old when it comes to jelly. He can’t get jelly out of the jar without getting it on his hands, therefore on the faucet handle! Thanks for the opportunity.

  63. What a great solution for any cook! How many times have I tried to season raw meat and have to wash my hands several times during the process. Then clean the faucet handles afterwards. This is also a great solution for my disabled mother. Many thanks for the chance to win!!!

  64. Anything that keeps the faucet cleaner is a good idea. We have had GREAT experiences with Moens customer service..they are awesome. They happily replaced little pieces that had worn out on our faucets that we had installed 11 years ago. Now I will look for Moen faucets to replace the worn out ones in our new house.

  65. I’ve been telling my husband I’ve wanted a hands free faucet for YEARS now. I still remember seeing a commercial for it and thought where has that been all my life? Between cooking and arts & crafts and turning on the water with my wrist, this is a dream product. I am totally envious.

  66. This faucet is awesome (as is your kitchen!). My hubs does most of the cooking and it would mean I would no longer have to be his kitchen faucet wingman. He’s always ordering me to turn on the water when he’s got meat hands.

  67. Oh man, I could’ve used this last night! We are ear-deep in home reno ourselves, as we are new homeowners. I desperately needed this yesterday when I was caulking the edges of the shelves in our newly-built pantry. 🙂 That would have definitely simplified things. As it is, I ended up scrubbing little bits of dried caulk out of the handles of our existing faucet at midnight.

  68. This would be a dream come true. I have Rheumatoid arthritis and back problems . I love to cook and be in the kitchen. This would help with pain and clean up. Many people don’t realize how many times you turn your faucet on and off in a day. Who needs to blame the kids for leaving the faucet running ? I’m to blame at my house yes a bit ADD due to MS. This seems like a winner in all aspects of life ,ease, water conservation, looks and function. It’s a no brainier in my book!

  69. In my place, this would be awesome for the sink in our kitchen for dishes and cooking, but mostly, I’m betting my cat would use it as a personal faucet. 🙂

  70. I love the idea of the hands free faucet – I work at a home improvement store and I’ve heard so many people (now including you!) rave about how convenient they are. I cook all the time, so it would really come in handy for me when I’ve got a handful of vegetables or fruit to wash – or like you said – nasty chicken juice all over!

  71. It would simplify my life so much because cooking/preping would be so much easier for me and for my daughter (who always wants to help)

  72. This would be fantastic for our household! We have an 8 year old and a 6 year old. It’s difficult for them to reach the handles of the faucet in the kitchen without the use of a chair. Of course, then they leave the chair in my way! It would be helpful to not have them to use a chair!

  73. this would simplify my life because I wouldn’t have to awkwardly turn my faucet on with one finger to avoid cross contamination!

  74. I would love to have one of these faucets! My current faucet has fingerprints of various paint colors from diy projects and a few satinesque spots of Mod Podge. Also ditto on the chicken juice ickyness. BTW, your whole project has been incredibly inspirational. You have lots more energy than I, girl!

  75. I love the idea of this faucet. That sure beats having to lysol wipe everything from the constant hand touching during flu season!

  76. I am in love with this idea. I do lots of messy art, so not having to clean the faucet handle all the time would be great.

  77. This awesome faucet could simplify my life because I love baking, especially homemade bread. After kneading the dough, often both of my hands are messy and I can really use the help of the sensor to turn on the water. How convenience!

    amy [at] utry [dot] it

  78. I would love this faucet. I’ve thought this was a great idea ever since I saw they were now being sold for homes. I love using these in public restrooms.

  79. It would be nice to not have to touch the handle to turn the water off. That would help when my hands are full.

  80. This is such a great product. I am always washing my hands and leaving a mess on the faucet. It would be so much easier for myself and also for easier cleanup for the kids. I can never manage to hold them up, get to the soap, and turn the water on/off when they help me in the kitchen.

  81. I would love a hands free faucet. I do a lot of cooking. This faucet would make it so much easier to clean my hands without having to touch the faucet.

  82. Oh my goodness! This would be great for preventing SYS (Strange Yucky Stuff) from appearing on my faucet handle all the time. My child literally cannot use the kitchen sink without leaving behind something for the next person to find (jelly, paint, pizza sauce, peanut butter, etc.)

  83. My faucet is in bad shape and I would love to have a new one. And of course a motion sensor one would be the bomb! I hate having to turn off the faucet with wet hands because then there are drips of water that need wiped off. Plus my 5 year old would be able to wash his hands by himself a lot easier.

  84. We have been remodeling our kitchen for 2 years now. Actually, it’s going to be a little longer before it’s finished. The last two things I need is chandeliers and this Moen MotionSense faucet.

  85. The kids would love to wash their hands without having to switch the faucet on. They would was more often and I wouldn’t have to clean the dirty on switch.

  86. Moen, with MotionSense, can make my life easier by not having faucet handles that get will become dirty and cleaned constantly.
    jslbrown_03 at yahoo dot com

  87. This faucet would really help me in the kitchen, when I’m cooking. No more messy hands playing with the faucet. This would really be a great help.
    Thanks so much.

  88. wouldn’t have to touch faucet with dirty hands – food or other materials – fantastic! Fewer germs with the kids!
    tvollowitz at aol dot com

  89. It would definitely get my kids to wash their hands more and save on spreading germs. Plus it would look great in my kitchen! Thanks

  90. This would make cooking and handling raw meat so much easier! I wouldn’t have to touch the faucet to turn on the water when my hands are all nasty!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    wildorchid985 @ gmail dot com

  91. I love this because I lost the use of my right side , and I when cooking and washing up it would be easy to turn on the water, GOD BLESS AND KEEP YA’LL SAFE IN HIS LOVING ARMS.

  92. This faucet sounds so great and convenient! It would be great when I need to rinse something but my hands are full. It would also be great to not have to dirty up the handle that I have to constantly clean.

  93. I would love to have a faucet like this. I recently replaced my kitchen faucet and just didn’t take the time to look into the motion sensor type. But it would be extremely helpful when working with things like raw chicken.

    Also, I am a fanatic about no spots on my faucet (or anything else for that matter!). Every time I reach up to push the lever on my faucet, water on my hands drips…. and I have to clean the drips…. AGAIN. I wipe those darn things a hundred times a day!

  94. This faucet is not only beautiful but will come in handy as I’m a bit OCD. I wash my hands countless times while I bake or cook.

  95. As my hubby and I age, our wrists, fingers, arm is getting more sensitive to movement. Straining to turn off facets is harder. this would really help.

  96. No more trying to balance a big pot with one hand, over a sink of dirty dishes lol, to try and turn the faucet on with the other. And the bronze one is just amazing!


  98. This faucet could make things in the kitchen so much easier. I could cook, take care of the children and wash dishes all at the same time and never have running water. Tweeted. I want to thank you for this awesome sweep and hope to win 🙂 Thanks !!!!

  99. Wow! That is super cool. I recently purchased my first house and redoing my kitchen is on my to-do list and one of this faucets would make me like the Jetsons! I use my hands a lot when prepping food, i.e.: massaging kale with olive oil – so having something like this would be a great help and make my kitchen look kinda groovy.

  100. I am an avid cook and it would be great to not have to risk cross contamination while preparing my meals by turning on the faucet with my hands.

  101. The hands free feature is awesome! When we get done hunting and cleaning the the meat, we won’t have to worry about getting the faucet dirty!

  102. My life would be simpler if I didn’t have to clean faucet handles every time I needed to wash messy hands! Way simpler!

  103. This would save all the disinfecting we need to do for our faucets. Even disinfecting isn’t effective since we don’t do it everytime we use the faucet. Motionsense looks awesome.
    songyueyu at gmail

  104. This would keep my kitchen so much more sanitary. I always worry about cross contamination when I prepare meat, especially chicken.

  105. A hands free faucet would be PERFECT. I’m forever elbow deep in some cooking project and don’t have the coordination to rip off a paper towel with “icky” hands just to turn on the water! And it would be great for my husband so he wouldn’t leave greasy prints all over it. At this point my faucet is broken and doesn’t even stand quite upright! After being in this house for 23 years we are just now able to make some changes…this sure would be a great start.

  106. I am in DIRE need of a new faucet. My kitchen faucet is pitted and leaky. GRRR. Would LOVE to have the gift cart to put toward my new one.

  107. Hands free faucet is great when you have stuff all over your hands. Also love the height of this faucet, makes washing large items easier.

  108. The truth is that my 7 year old performance-loving son and I would pretend to be DJ’s and dance stars to see how that baby be fun! I can see it now, I’d use the top sensor for a fake vinyl record scratching motion and sound (think “Stomp”) and he’d use the bottom to try his trademark “sprinkler” dance move. What is the sprinkler, you ask? He used to do this dance in the bathtub by filling up his mouth with water, put one hand on the back of his head and hold his other arm straight out and rhythmically squirt water across the bathroom and jolt his arm forward, just like a lawn sprinkler until he giggled so hard he couldn’t keep water in his mouth. It would simplify things for him if he could hold the hose part and motion sense it and the same time. This would take the sprinkler dance to a whole new level! …Oh, I guess my husband who does 99% of the cooking could occasionally use it too, you know, he’s the more cleanly one. But only if the messy DJ dancers are not in the house. : )

  109. That faucet looks amazing! It would definitely cut down on the spread of dirt and germs around the kitchen sink and prep area.

  110. I work from home, mostly. And I am on my cell phone a LOT. Many times I have been cleaning my kitchen or preparing food and my phone rings. How I have wished I could wash the meat juice (or other various greasy items!) off my hands quickly so I could pick up my cell phone! A hands free faucet would definitely do the trick! One day, when “we’re rich,” as we like to say in my house…we will remodel the kitchen and this faucet is at the the top of the list!

  111. Just wait a second ! In the old days we had to pump water from a pump and haul it uphill and in the snow : barefoot and hungry ! Now you spring chickies come along and merely wave your little hands and wah lah, you have water. Oh lawd, please deliver me from such grandeur. (side note, I want to win this)

  112. This could make my life so much easier because I love to cook and feel like I spend at least 5 hours a day in my own kitchen. I also practice good hand washing with my children ( yes I’ m a germaphobic a that appeals to my “don’t touch anything you just washed your hands” syndrome). I would love to win this!!!!

  113. It would help simplify my life by not having to worry so much about germs on faucet handles and having to frequently clean them.

  114. this faucet would make my life fun and easy. i would save so much time when preparing meals as well as time when washing dishes. the kids would not get their dirty hands on the faucet so cleaning would be easier too. i would love to have this faucet.

  115. It would help because I am constantly having to tell my daughter not to turn the water on high blast and not to leave it on so long.

  116. We live in a 100 year old house. We definitely could use a new faucet. I’m sure this one has been replaced before but not for a while.

  117. I have wanted one of these for YEARS. I cook most nights and do a lot of hand washing. This would eliminate the step of cleaning the faucet after my hands. It would also let me fill pots, etc without having to set them down to turn off the water or leave the water running while I walk to the stove.

  118. this would be great to have, my children are very active outdoors and I spend more time cleaning our sink handles than any other part of our house ha ha

  119. It would save me some clothes. If I had it I wouldn’t have to spray clorox cleanup on the handle after cutting raw chicken. I usually get the clorox on my clothes and it ruins them. thank you!

  120. Growing up, my parents constantly served sweetened Iced tea, and my husbands parents gave him juice or soda. In college, I dropped that “freshman 15” (mine was 20 lbs…) simply by drinking nothing but water, cutting the sugar drinks…aka root beer! My husband, fiance at the time, decided to do the same and we got hooked on water. We are now about to have our 6th child and have raised them drinking nothing but water except special occasions. Pizza needs root beer and breakfast on Saturday needs o.j.! This faucet would be amazing for them to fill their own cups with water during the day. We homeschool…they are ALWAYS here and asking for water, can’t drink enough and are too short to reach the handle. What a mommy’s helper this would be! We have the water thing on the fridge, actually it’s inside so they can’t play with it. Water is too cold, and again, most of them are too short to use it anyways. They have never had cavities, are thankful for the simplicity of clean water and it is easy on the budget besides being healthy. I LOVE your blog. everything….

  121. I love Moen.. Would love to have this faucet in our spring redo of our kitchen. Love the idea of not having to touch a knob to turn it on.. really sanitary !

  122. My husband would love this….he is a big germaphobe in the kitchen, and is always asking me to turn the sink on for him so he doesn’t touch the handle.

  123. My husband had a stroke several years ago. This faucet would be “the ideal” as he often forgets to turn the water off after using the faucet. For the cook in the house (that would be me) I can’t even begin to list the reasons this would be perfect! The best for me would be that my messy, germ filled hands get washed without touching the handle….I love the idea!!!!

  124. Haha at the comment about someone’s cat using it….pretty sure that’d happen at my place too!

    I’m in the middle of a whole home reno (DIY, of course) and this would be great to replace the crappy one I have now. I garden a lot so the no-touch feature is a no-brainer!

  125. This faucet would simplify my life because it would keep me from having to constantly clean our facet to keep it free from bacteria.

  126. This faucet would help us so much. When rinsing raw meat we end up contaminating the kitchen faucet because it doesn’t have the sensors like the one in this post.

  127. This would help with cooking meats and cutting onions…I won’t have to worry about getting those nasty germs on the faucet.

  128. I am in the kitchen pretty much from the time I wake up until I go to bed- I am cooking, baking, cleaning…. you name it! This looks incredible and would save me some time!

  129. By reminding me of the wisdom to cat proof our kitchen. Can you imagine what they’d do with that?

  130. This would be great for when I’m cooking and my hands are dirty that I dont have to touch the faucet.

  131. I think this faucet is a great idea. Maybe I’m just a messy cook (although I prefer to think of it as “hands on”), but I’m always getting food stuff on the faucet when I need to wash my hands in the middle of food prep. Then I have to wash off the handles. This would eliminate that need and be very convenient!

  132. This faucet would be great because of the touch less feature and that would prevent the spread of germs better in our house.

  133. Oh man I love this faucet. We spend so much time in the kitchen preparing a whole foods diet for our family. we make almost everything by hand no packaging for our foods at all. In any event we soak and rinse and clean and wash all the day long.

  134. The Moen faucet could simplify my life by drastically cutting down on bacteria on the faucet handles. I wouldn’t have to disinfect often or worry much about it.

  135. In a house with 4 kids, 3 adults, 4 dogs, 3 cats, and a turtle we wash our hands all the time! This would be so nice when the kids are sick, or when I’m cooking and have a mess (literally) on my hands!

  136. this would be awesome because my faucet handle just broke in my kitchen and now I cant turn on the cold water..lol

  137. I do large batch cooing once a month and have to wash my hands every couple of minutes while prepping, this would make things so much easier than turning with my wrist.

  138. i do lots of crafting and this would help keep paint and glue off of the faucet handles!

  139. I would love the Arbor with MotionSense because it would save me time and patience. The motion sense is terrific, especially in messy situations when there is dirt on my hands from gardening or when baking from scratch. Instead of getting dirt or flour all over the kitchen faucet, I can wave my hand to get the water to turn on and off without having to clean my hands an wipe down the faucet handle from touching it with messy hands.

  140. this would come in handy when i am cooking and in sticky situations! cookie dough and meatloaf is the worst and it would save me from having to grab a paper towel to hold onto while i turn on my faucet, thanks clallen at ntin dot net

  141. This faucet would be fabulous when preparing chicken when you need to wash your hands before touching the faucet

  142. This would simplify our lives by allowing us to wash our messy hands while painting, cooking, or crafting without having to touch the faucet’s knobs to start the water flow — which usually are harder to get the goop off of than our hands!

  143. I am a baker in my house, always making cookies, cakes, pies, bread and it is hard when you have dough on your hands you try your best not to make a big mess turning on the faucet . This would be great in my kitchen!!

  144. I’m always making something that makes me have messy hand so I would love to be able to wash my hands off without getting goop all over the faucet.

  145. It would simplify my life by making preparing dinner easier. I never have enough hands. Not having to touch the sink to turn it on would be great. Also not worrying about contamination when touching the sink after handling raw meat would be great.

  146. Absolutely love the concept! No more having to worry over germs being left behind on my faucet handles while I’m handling food.

  147. I say this faucet would improve my life by saving me time and focus. Turning a faucet handle may not take more than a second, but if I were doing a project (e.g. clay art project) and I realized I really needed to check my email, it would be way less of a hassle to wash off with a hands-free faucet to do so! And if the phone rang, I’d actually be able to wash off quickly and pick it up before it’s too late!

  148. It will simplify my life because I cook all the meals at home and it’ll make both the cooking and cleaning process easier.

  149. It would simplify my life because I am constantly holding my 5 month old so the motion sensor would really be convenient! Plus, I think the sensor would eliminate the spreading of germs.

  150. The hands free kitchen faucet would be great for when I am cooking using raw eggs or chicken and need to wash my hands but don’t want to touch the faucet handle. It would also be a great way to get the boys to wash their hands because they would think it was so cool!

  151. This would simplify my life tremendously to have a faucet that doesn’t leak and I think I could fall in love with the sleek look.

  152. We have very old facets and it would be so nice to have one that is so convenient to use.
    I love the motion sensor and the look in general.It has a nice modern look.It would definitely add some class to my kitchen.Thanks for the giveaway

  153. This would make cooking and cleaning up hands a snap in my house great for making meatloaf when hands are full of a mess

  154. It would be helpful to be able to not have a knob to turn when you have dirty hands

  155. I try so hard to keep my kitchen clean and everyone as germ free as possible, but this would really help make that happen!

  156. It would be great when dealing with raw meat, wash it off your hands instead if putting it all over the faucet handles!

  157. This faucet would make things so much easier. We’ve got a small sink and I think it’d make washing larger dishes much better.

  158. It never fails, every time I get involved in working with Chicken the phone rings or someone will come to the door and that means touching the faucet with icky hands. So many times when that happens I think, “Oh I just wish I had a hands free faucet.” This would be a dream come true!
    thanks so much for this opportunity.
