Moen Arbor 7294 Pullout Kitchen Faucet – Best Moen Pull-out Kitchen Faucet
Features: Power Clean, Spot resist (optional)
Another model from the famous and popular Abor collection: the Moen Arbor pull-out kitchen faucet 7294. The sleek appearance and unique handle design make for the signature look of the collection – a look that can easily go with a variety of kitchen decor.
My personal style of choice for kitchen faucets is always the pull-down. I, myself, have much use for the high-arc and find the vertical length to be quite elegant.
Still, that is not to wholly disregard pull-out faucets. In a small kitchen with considerably limited counter and sink space, a compact faucet is, of course, the optimal choice. It also depends on your own preference on design and usability.
While not equipped with fancy technologies, the Moen Arbor 7294 is still a pull-out kitchen faucet with all the functions that can easily ease your daily kitchen routine. Straightforward and money-saving.
As the name suggests, the headwand can be pulled out to the maximum reach of 59” – more than enough for a small kitchen and not lacking for a spacious one.
Unlike Moen pull-downs, pull-outs don’t need Reflex to help the wand and hose retract, thanks to the nature of the wand placement in design. However, I doubt it will automatically get drawn back if you pull it too far out. Something to keep in mind.
The wand also features 2 spraying modes and one pause button for specific uses. You have the normal aerated stream, and the Power Clean powered spray mode for faster clean up.
Regarding finish, there are four available choices: chrome, matte black, oiled rubbed bronze and Spot Resist stainless. As discussed earlier, the ideal option would be a finish that is stain-resistant and looks good while being so, which is not entirely impossible.
Besides the oil rubbed bronze and Spot Resist stainless for potential candidates, matte black could also be a pretty nice choice.
It’s especially known for its ability to hide scratches and perhaps most importantly, its own unique look. However, oil and smudges are easily visible without regular maintenance. So, be mindful with your choice of finish.
Moen Arbor 7294 is covered with a Moen standard lifetime limited warranty.
Power Clean technology provides 50 percent more spray power versus most of our pulldown and pullout faucets without the Power Clean technology, while containing splashing and minimizing mess. Now, users can clean dishes faster while reducing the amount of residual water in and around the sink. Greater force means faster clean-up with less water used.
Sticky, caked-on messes are all too common in the kitchen sink. It can be frustrating rinsing dishes, pots or pans with a lackluster spray that may still need extra scrubbing to get dishes clean. And if the spray does have force behind it, water splash back around the sink area can make a big mess. Delivering on its commitment to fulfill unmet consumer needs, Moen is introducing new Power Clean™ technology to select kitchen faucets, providing more force to get tough jobs done.

Moen Arbor 7594ESRS Pulldown Kitchen Faucet – Best Moen (touchless) to Buy 2021
Features: MotionSense, Reflex, Power Clean, Spot Resist finish (optional)
Regarded by a large portion of the community as one of the most well-rounded products out of Moen’s varied kitchen faucet collections, the Moen Arbor 7594e is a touchless pull-down faucet that is doubtlessly worth the top spot of the list.
Reasonable pricing, usability, technology, and aesthetics all coming together in one piece of work, we can firmly state that Moen has designed a faucet that is now one of the best kitchen faucets on the market.
First off, we have to take a look at the MotionSense – Moen exclusive touchless technology, more specifically the two-sensor version.
One sensor functions at the highest vertical point of the spout – called the wave sensor, which activates when movements are detected. Wave once to turn the water on and again to turn it off. Basically, a hands-free… handle.
Another one is at the base, near the swivel joint, serving as a ready-sensor. it activates when there is an object present in front of it. When that object pulls away, it’ll automatically deactivate, much like – and I think you guessed it – bathroom hands-free fixtures.
There is, of course, a handle as well for such cases where you don’t feel like doing waterbending techniques. The handle is with standard functions of a quality faucet. It also lets you control the water force and temperature when the water is run by the sensors.
It will, once again, come in handy when the sensors unexpectedly malfunction or the batteries run out. All in all, a faucet without a handle is something that I personally would not trust.
Pull-down faucets are no longer a thing of wonders like it once was, but it remains one of the best kitchen pieces of decor thanks to the reach and the angle play. What’s convenient about the Moen Arbor 7594e, or pretty much all Moen pull-down faucets, is the high arc, the flexible braided hose, the retractable head, and the secure docking.
Retractable heads, though expected to operate smoothly for a long time, are never as good as advertised, especially with the docking. After a certain amount of time, if it’s not treated with care, accidents and negative effects of traction at certain parts are inevitable.
To me, retractability is not completely about how it can retract by itself but more about the force lent to help lead the thing back into place without forceful shoving. We have to understand that the whole thing is just an exploitation of gravity. So the safest way to keep your faucets long-lasting is to be gentle.
All that said, the spout is perfectly good, nonetheless. The arc is high enough for big and deep pots; the hose and its build is engineered to be remarkably bendable; the head is securely docked and is with two common modes, namely stream and spray, and a pause button (in case you’re a few feet away – 68” at maximum – from the sink.)
And by “skin” I mean the finishes. The best finishes for kitchen fixtures are of course the ones that can stand against stains and such. Particularly with this product, oil rubbed bronze and Spot Resist stainless are the two for that purpose and for looking gorgeous as well.
Unlike the stainless steel which possesses a more modern shade of a finish, oil rubbed bronze gives out a classic vibe with a shiny, rusty hue of bronze. While it’s not exactly anti-stain, marks can be cleaned off much effortlessly.
Finally, the Arbor 7594e is covered with a lifetime limited warranty as long as the original purchaser owns their home. Additionally, digital components are also warranted for up to 5 years.
