Our kitchen faucet was in dire need of an upgrade – too often we couldn’t fill pitchers or pot easily because of our old faucet was too low, and rust clung all around the joints. I was looking for a taller faucet while re-doing my kitchen. I read many kitchen faucet reviews, did a lot of researching about the manufacturers before purchase the Moen 7594CSL. When we received our new Moen Faucet, it was a huge relief!
As soon as I opened the box, I was impressed. First, I noticed there was a base plate cover if you have a standard three-hole cutout in your sink or counter. It also comes with a plastic piece containing a rubber seal eliminating the need for plumber’s putty. The same setup for single-hole installation is included in the box as well. I liked this because they do sell three-hole kits as an option.
The Moen One Handle High Arc Faucet was really easy to install – the only tools I needed were a wrench to remove my old faucet, and a screwdriver to install the new Moen Faucet. Moen included a tool to use in conjunction with a screwdriver to tighten the included nuts and bolts. Having never changed a faucet before, it only took me an hour to remove the old faucet, and install the new faucet.
Here are some of the important product features:
- Stainless finish delivers a lightly brushed warm gray metallic look
- Moen’s 1255 Duralast cartridge – provides a consistently smooth handle feel for the life of the faucet
- High-arc spout provides more clearance
- The three-function sprayer – aerated stream, powerful rinse, and pause.
- One-Handle lever design for ease of use
- Moen’s Reflex pulldown system – provides smooth operation, easy movement, and secure docking.
- Hydrolock quick connect installation
- ADA compliant
I love how the pull-down sprayer allows you to turn off the streaming water right at the headpiece when switching sides of the sink or to make other adjustments as needed. Actually I was surprised at how much I use the pause button to move between sinks and to fill up large pots.
The arc is nice and high, and easily swivels from side to side, thus allowing me to put large pots and other cookware into the sink and not have to tilt them under the faucet stream.
As other kitchen faucet reviews mentioned, the large button on the nozzle to switch to the sprayer function is convenient and the hose pulls out and retracts smoothly. The small handle makes it easy even for our young children to adjust the temperature. I really like that you could choose which side to put the handle on, thus making it appealing for either right- or left-handed users.
Oh yea, did I mention it’s BEAUTIFUL? It’s like a work of art in my otherwise very outdated kitchen. The Stainless finish is flawless and everything has a very ergonomic and tactile feel to it during use. I know it sounds like I’m talking about a German sedan, and not a kitchen faucet, but I really like this thing…
Here’s one of the kitchen faucet reviews about Moen 7594CSL
This is a solidly constructed faucet. Nothing rattles/wobbles, everything moves smoothly. It looks and feels almost all metal. I love the pullout spray–no separate and messy spray. The spray springs back when you let go of it. You can also adjust the location of the weight on the spray hose to limit how far down you want to allow the spray head to go. The high arc means it’s easy to place large pans under it. One of the best features of this faucet is its aerator. The stream is very steady, not frothy and not solid. I’ve never seen better. My plumber said that this faucet was a good choice, but also said we should be careful in maintaining the faucet–No abrasives in cleaning. He even suggested that we consider applying a thin coating of car wax (LIProf).
