Product Overview

The Moen 7294SRS Arbor One-Handle Pullout Kitchen or Laundry Faucet is a high-quality single handle faucet in beautiful soft-matte stainless steel. The spot-free finish is resistant to rust, fingerprints, and corrosion. Stainless steel is a top choice for health and food environments because it is very hygienic as well as aesthetically beautiful. Looking at the best Moen kitchen faucets you will see that the Power Clean technology cleans with 50% more spray power than other pull-out faucets.

The pullout faucet has a high arc, standing over a foot above the counter, giving plenty of room for cleaning large dishes or pans, as well as a very responsive pull-out nozzle that easily navigates to hard to reach spots. It’s a versatile faucet that is appropriate for installation in a one-hole set-up or can be integrated with a three-hole integration using a decking plate which is conveniently included with your purchase.

The flexible pull-down nozzle is on a bendable, yet durable 68-inch braided hose that easily responds to touch. It’s very easy to use and has multiple spray settings for convenient cleaning. The appearance of the faucet is elegant and timeless, with a modern brushed stainless steel finish that has a warmer appearance than high-shine stainless models.

Like all Moen faucets, the Arbor One-Handle Pullout faucet is backed by the Moen Lifetime Performance Guarantee. This limited lifetime warranty covers the faucet parts and finish, and guarantees leak-free performance for the lifetime of the product. This is a high-quality product from a trusted manufacturer that you can expect to outlive many other appliances.

Best Product Features

Save More Water

The handy pause on the spray nozzle will encourage you to cut the water off when you don’t need it because it easily stops the flow of water with the touch of a finger, and maintains your desired flow and temperature without having to touch the nozzle. This makes it easy for yourself to remember to conserve water as much as possible while using your sink. The flow of water is limited to 1.5 gallons per minute which is significantly lower than the average, 2.2 gallons per minute.

Powerful Spray Nozzle

There are two different spray settings on the nozzle for convenient cleaning. The highest spray setting, the “Power Clean” feature, increases the spray power of the nozzle by 50%, easily cutting through tough to clean spots. The wand is on an extremely long and flexible hose that easily maneuvers to wherever you need it, and snaps back into position without any help. Looking at the best Moen kitchen faucets, the ones with Power Clean are much more powerful for tough cleaning.

Hassle-Free Installation

The model of faucet has only one handle to control the flow and temperature, so it does only require one hole. If you have a three-hole sink, this faucet can be easily adapted using an optional deck plate that is included in the box with your purchase. It’s a hassle-free installation process that even inexperienced home improvers can handle without help from a professional.

It uses a “Hydrolock” system that makes the installation process a million times simpler. It doesn’t require any additional tools at all and the parts easily integrate with your existing plumbing. It takes only minutes to have your new faucet fully installed, and once it is it’s guaranteed excellent performance for a lifetime.

Spot-Free Stainless Steel Finish

The beautiful soft-matte brushed stainless finish is fingerprint resistant and spot resistant so it stays cleaner longer. Normal faucets can easily develop spotting from soap scum and mineral buildup, but not this high-quality stainless steel finish. It has a beautiful, warm versatile metallic color that looks great with the stark white of the sink. Combined with other stainless steel appliances is creates a sense of unity in the kitchen space.

Worst Product Features

Not Hands-Free

For those with extremely limited hand mobility, a faucet with a hands-free function may be necessary. New, high-tech kitchen faucets use sensors to detect motion and automatically start the flow of water without touching the faucet. There are also single-touch start faucets that can be started with a touch from anywhere on the body.

Summary

The Moen 7294SRS Arbor One-Handle Pullout Kitchen or Laundry Faucet is a high-quality single-handle kitchen faucet that has a convenient pullout nozzle on a 68-inch hose.
