I am in love.
Completely in love with something I never knew I needed until a couple of weeks ago.
Not so long ago Moen sent me an Arbor with MotionSense™ faucet to try out and review. You know, one of those super awesome faucets with a motion sensor in them that you don't have to touch to turn on?
Yes, please! I was so excited. I've wanted one of these since they came on the market. The commercials always made me a little green with envy, so I was thrilled to try one out for myself.
Installation seemed standard, nothing tricky or complex: old one out and new one in, easy as 1, 2 and 3. You would think it would be complicated with the abilities it has, but there seemed to be nothing to it.
I'll be honest, the first day took some getting used to but it only felt strange for a short amount of time.
And now? I have no idea how I would go back. I am completely spoiled and in love with this faucet. It has become second nature to everyone in our house to turn it on without touching a thing.
Being an artist and a baker and one who cooks for my family a lot, I am not a stranger to trying to turn on a faucet with the back of my hand because my hands are covered in paint or eggs or batter of some sort. Now we just have to get close enough to a sensor, either by waving a hand across the wave sensor or by just being near the ready sensor and it pops on, at the perfect temperature at that. To turn it off either wave by again or move your hands out of the ready sensor zone. SO easy and surprisingly second nature.
You may also know that I have boys. Sticky, muddy, dirty little boys who operate in extremes when it comes to water... ALL the way on and either super HOT or super COLD. With this faucet we were able set the temperature to a perfect degree for hand washing for the boys, and the boys don't have anything to do with how fast it comes out... no more flooding my counter or worrying about them burning themselves. A total win in my book.
I wish, in the interest of being unbiased, I could offer up one complaint for you but there really isn't one. It's pretty, easy to use, easy to install, saves water (and work!) and makes my life just a tiny bit easier.
If it's been on your "maybe" list... do it, you won't regret it! Check out their site for product details and where to buy.
