Unlike many other modern kitchen faucets, Moen 7185CSL is quite strong and well-manufactured. We installed this faucet a couple of months back and there are no signs of deterioration whatsoever, despite the fact that we have been using it daily. The stainless steel finish is also well done and I have not noticed any scratches or flaking of the material.
Extremely smooth handle movement makes fine-tuning temperature balance. The spout pulls pit smoothly and docks slips back into the docked position no matter where it is released because of its amazing ‘Reflex’ system. However, once the spray head comes all the way back it does not click in like magnetic systems but I have gotten used to that now. The Moen 7185CSL also possesses 2.2 gpm water flow, which makes it extremely convenient when washing deep bowls or dishes or filling up a large container.
