Moen Arbor faucet with Motionsense + giveaway

We got a fancy new gift in our kitchen: the Moen Arbor faucet with MotionSense! Happy New Year to us :)
First, I have to tell you that when we had contractors finishing our basement and I went to pick out faucets for the bathroom, the main contractor told me to do myself a favor and pick out a Moen. He said they may be a little more pricey initially, but they are well worth it in the long run. He said he rarely sees problems with them, they are solid and built to last, and it’s the only brand he would buy personally for faucets. I asked how much they were paying him and went and picked out a Moen for the shower. And, that is what we buy now, so of course I jumped at the chance to try the new Moen MotionSense faucet for our kitchen. Coolest faucet ever!
moen


It installs just like a regular faucet, but the motion sensors are powered by battery pack or optional AC power adapter. There are 4 ways of using it:
moen faucet
1. The Wave sensor at the top: Simply wave your hand over the top of it and the water will stay on for filling up pots, etc. while you run rescue your 3 year old whose belt loop got hooked on the cabinet! Simply wave your hand back over the top to turn it off again, and the neighbor kids will think you are magic.
landon hooked
2. The Ready sensor is perfect for kids filling up drinks, washing off fruit, or a quick rinse of the dishcloth. It senses if something is directly below the spout and will turn on and off by itself. I was worried the faucet would constantly be turning on when someone walked past, but it doesn’t. It seems a little magical how it turns on just long enough to do what you need to, and then turns right off. My kids have loved it, and I have loved them not shoving chairs up to the faucet to reach the handle.
3. It also has a regular handle if you want to turn it on and off the old fashioned way.
4. The sprayer comes out and is perfect for spraying down the sink and getting all of the junk down the disposal. The black button lets you switch back between a stream of water and a spray.
I LOVE the spot resist stainless, it keeps it looking fresh and new. I also love that you barely ever touch this faucet so it stays clean and hopefully more germ free. If you're interested in checking it out, click here to read about product details and where they're sold.

    I would love one of these. I hate cutting up raw chicken and then trying to lift the faucet lever with my arm or wrist. This would be a great way to solve the problem of turning on the water whenever I have sticky hands or fingers.

  35.  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.

Ooooh, would looove to win!  My faucet has a short neck, and it is difficult to fill pitchers, tall pots, etc.  It would be so nice to have that beautiful high neck to work with, and with two young children and a busy life I think the touchless option would be fantastic...no more problems with a 5 year old accidentally leaving the faucet running for long periods of time!  Yeah...my fingers are crossed!! :-)

  71. WOW!  I was just watching my current kitchen faucet leak while I was washing out the sink and thinking that we need a new one.  That motion sense thing would be awesome for my 5 year old to be able to use the faucet without needing help.  Or, it might drive me crazy that he turns it on all the time...I guess if I win I'll find out which one it is.

  81. I have a 5 year old that uses the excuse "it's too hard for me to reach the handle" for why she doesn't rinse off her dishes!  This would be awesome for that!  -

  83. I think this would be an awesome addition to my kitchen for all the reasons you mentioned:  Hands free, sprayer availability for cleaning sink, spot free stainless steel and old-fashioned handle!

  84. Love this so much!  I didn't even know such faucets existed for the home.  Our current kitchen faucet is on the fritz.  If you push the handle too far back it leaks at the base.  I'm sure it's fixable, but I'd prefer to just replace it with one that turns on and off with magic!
