Product Review: Moen 7430W Chateau One-Handle Low Arc Kitchen Faucet
Price Range: $100 – $150
Finish Choices: Brushed Chrome, Chrome, Glacier.
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a low to mid-range contemporary styled one handle kitchen faucet complete with side spray.
- The Chateau One-Handle Low Arc Kitchen Faucet is nicely styled with elegant curves and beautifully rounded edges. The faucet comes with choice of either Chrome or Glacier finishes, allowing you to have the ideal aesthetic appearance to match either a modern or traditional styled kitchen.
- Its metal construction gives the Chateau the durability to hold up well to everyday usage.
- This faucet features a generously sized low-arc spout with a 9-1/8″ reach and 360 degree swivel to enable you to place it anywhere in the sink for optimum flexibility.
- Simple operation is assured using the single lever style handle, which is a nice smooth mover. The water temperature is controlled flawlessly by 180˚ arc of the handle travel for great precision.
- Included with the faucet is a Protégé side spray which provides a convenient way to have spray at the ready for cleaning pots and pans. The side spray uses Moen’s Hydrolock® quick connect system so it literally just connects in a snap.
- The side spray is constructed from plastic, so isn’t of the same level of durability as the faucet itself. Also, its hose is rather stiff so it could be better on the functional side of things.

- Spout height: 5-4/9″
- Reach: 9-1/8″
- Installation type: Four hole

Guarantee: Lifetime limited warranty against leaks, drips and finish defects. 5-year limited warranty for commercial installation.
The Moen 7430W Chateau Kitchen Faucet is a good quality simple faucet which would suit anyone looking for something affordable, functional and modern without the need of fancy features. The low-arc design is really good for people with shallow sinks as it avoids problems of splashing common with high-arc spouts.
The addition of a side spray comes in real handy. It puts out a decent amount of water pressure so it’s actually very useful. If you don’t need a side spray, this faucet is also available without one (model: 7425).
