You can get them that cheap for a No-Name Special but they tend to be a bit difficult to use....

IMHO Ridgid makes a very good quality one and they sell in the $30 - 40 range. Sometimes good tools make a big difference in getting the job done.

I know I'm a little late with this. but I just had the same problem yanking my bathroom faucet handle out. I have hard water in my system. I was able to pour boiling water down the stem of the handle, wait a few minutes and then was able to wiggle it free. there was alot of mineral deposit that was holding the handle in place. maybe you might have the same situation.

If all else fails, get out the cutting torch or portable hack saw and go to it. I agree with other posters about having good performance from Moen faucets, although I have a brand new Delta 418-WF (bought on sale, at a price I couldn't resist) still in the box waiting to be installed, when our existing cheapo craps out.
