A big thank you to Moen for sponsoring today’s post. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
A few months ago, the lovely people at Moen contacted me and asked if I would like to try out one of their new garbage disposals. I was almost certain that our current disposal had probably never been replaced. It was also clogging up almost every week. So it took me all of about five minutes to answer, ” Yes!…I would love to try a Moen garbage disposal!”
It arrived at my home a few weeks later and then sat in my kitchen for over a month in this lovely box just waiting.
What was the hold up? Well, in addition to the garbage disposal, Moen also sent me a new apron sink and faucet! But before all those goodies could be installed I had to do four things. One, remove my old kitchen sink and counter tops. Two, install the new apron sink. Three, have new counter tops placed back in. And then four, finish the whole process by installing the garbage disposal and faucet. Make sense? I’ve discovered kitchen remodels can sometimes be a sloooow process! You need lots of patience and paper plates! 😉
So now that my new counter tops where officially installed, we were good to go. My husband has a friend in a plumbing business, so he was kind enough to come over and hook everything up for me. First he started with the garbage disposal…
The great thing about Moen disposals is the Universal Xpress Mount installation system. It fits all Moen and most existing 3-bolt mounting assemblies making it a breeze to install. The disposal also came pre-wired which was fantastic. Just plug it in and grind away to your heart’s content! The compact design is nice feature too because it frees up space underneath the sink. If you have a apron sink…you know that space is very limited under that sink. 😉 I love the power of the Vortex permanent magnet motor. It’s similar to those of power tools– so it immediately starts operating at full speed! The results are finely ground particles that make it hard for the disposal to jam up. And thanks to the soundSHIELD technology, I can turn it on without scaring everyone in the family.
Next the faucet was installed…
Moen sent me the Hayfield Spot Resist stainless faucet. It has two motion sensors on it allowing for a hands free operation. So convenient when cooking and your hands are a mess.
Here’s is a view inside the new stainless steal apron sink….it’s 9 inches deep. You can stack lots of dishes inside this baby! 😉
This is a further back view of the new sink area…
See….I told you I was making some progress. Slowly but surely! If you are interested in getting yourself a new garbage disposal you can find them online at the Home Depot. Honestly, I love my new garage disposal and with Moen’s warranty with in-home service, there’s really no doubt it’s a great buy.
I can’t wait to show you some more changes to the kitchen. More updates will be coming soon, so stay tuned!
