Moen 7185CSL Kitchen Faucet Review
Compliments any kitchen with modern elegance and immaculate performance.
All-Curves Design and Quality
I’ve seen and reviewed hundreds of faucets, but the curves of Moen Brantford is special. One look at it and what I remembered was the neck of a swan - curvy, elegant and timelessly beautiful. It has a classic stainless steel or bronze Spot Resist finish to add further value to the already unique design.
The spout stands about 8 inches high, neither too tall nor short for averaged to large-sized kitchens. It’ll finely suit any decor, and may end up being one of the most luxurious-looking upgrades you’ll make.
With every inch made up of metal and high grade material, Moen Brantford has a lasting nature. After all, you do pay a pretty penny to buy it. So it’s fair and reasonable to expect a long life from your purchase, which in this case you’ll receive.
A Classic Pull-Out Sprayer
If you want one of the longest, most convenient pull-out spray heads on the market, then Moen Brantford is for you. The 68-inch long hose can cover a wide area, and you can easily reach and fill your coffee maker in the other corner of your kitchen, or water indoor plants without leaving a single mess behind.
Pulling the spray head out is a smooth process, and the flow can be paused until you’ve reached your destination. The spray can also be changed from normal to shower by using the button at the back of the sprayer. Better still, the ball-joint swivel helps to angle the spray and reach your target pretty easily.
The sprayer features a Self-Retracting Action too. This ensures that it goes right back in on its own and locks to the spout as smoothly as a serpent. You don’t have to worry about it coming off, this docking mechanism has something similar to a suction action to keep it firmly in place.
Designed to fit both one-hole and three-hole sinks, installing Moen 7185 is a breeze. No additional parts will be needed, including plumber’s putty. The faucet also features the Duralock Hydrolock Installation System. Under this, the water lines come pre-installed and without the need for any tool.
The included instructions are clear too, and you won’t want any other guidance to set to work. Iff you’re DIY plumber, then I’m pretty sure you can handle it on your own.
One point you should consider, however, is the side on which you’ll be installing the handle. It’s designed to fit any side - right, left, front or behind. Make sure you locate it on the side you believe would be the most convenient before drilling your sink.
Warranty Speaks For Itself
Apart from the quality, Moen warranties and customer service are two major reasons why people consider this brand. They’ve been standing behind their products in a way that most manufacturers don’t. The same level of support could be found with regards to Brantford too. You get a limited lifetime warranty with incredible support.
While you need to bear all labour costs, the replacements, including shipping charges will be sent out to you at the company’s expense. They’re pretty quick to send them, so if anything goes wrong, you don’t have to go without a faucet for long.
Moen Brantford meets the specifications for ADA which means that even those with disabilities can use it. The faucet also meets current legislation, including ab1953 (California) and s152 (Vermont).

The Bottom Line
Moen 7185 is one of the handful of faucets that hasn’t sacrificed value to secure performance and durability. If the initial price concerns you, then think about the burden and expenses you get to save without investing on a low-priced faucet packed with trouble.
If you need more convincing, then you should certainly check it out on Amazon. And at the end of the day, it’s the largest online marketplace with the truest customer reviews.
However, if you’re looking for one step ahead, then you’d better check my review on
Moen 7594E. It’s the touchless version of Moen 7185 and gives people enough reasons to buy it.
