Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Delta Kitchen Faucet Model # 16953-SS-DST I have purchased many Delta faucets in the past, being fully satisfied with each of them; however, this particular faucet is poorly engineered and lasted appx. five months before the spray wand started flopping around in the spout. It's almost impossible to seat the spray wand back into the spout opening after using hot water. The poor fit between the spray wand and the spout causes the spray wand to turn to the side while in the spout, spraying water either to the left or right where it is not desired. I would recommend that consumers go with a different Delta product or a different manufacturer when purchasing a faucet of this type. September 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to install This faucet was a snap to install but it helped to have my wife available to hold the faucet steady while I fastened the nuts from underneath to secure the faucet to the sink. The only real problem was the water lines. They are non-flexible tubing that were much longer than I needed so had to cut to size to attach to the water outlets. Not easy to do. It would be a big help if the tubing was flexible so it could easily be coiled to attach to the outlet.. Over all I'm very happy with the results and with the faucet appearance and operation. I researched other faucets and found this one to have the best feature for the price. April 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great, Looks Good I installed this faucet about a month ago to replace the leaking brand X faucet in our motorhome. The installation was quite difficult primarily because there is not much room under the sink in the RV. I had to go to a plumbing supply store to find couplings to mate the faucet's water connections to the RV's supply lines. It took several tries to tighten the couplings enough to stop leaks but by the end of the day all was well. I like the design with the handle above the spout so that it easy to reach with either hand. It is overall smaller than many other designs so it fits nicely in our somewhat cramped quarters. February 14, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't last 6 months I bought this at HD and within 6 months it started leaking into the sink cabinet. By the time the leak was discovered it had done significant damage in the basement. The leak was from within the unit, so it could not have been an installation issue. I would have been disappointed if it had simply stopped working so soon but it was the flooded basement that prompted me to write this review. Even when it was working, the design had substantial drawbacks and the overall quality seemed poor. For example, the handle had to be lined up Exactly center and down to shut off completely, such that it was frequently left trickling. Also, the fit of the sprayer head into the socket was clumsy. April 18, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by A great faucet but I wish you would make some changes You should eliminate the plastice water connections because they are hard to work with and bend. Plus the instructions were not too clear on what to do after you cut the plastic tube. You should just have the faucet and let the cosumer purchase whatever length of reinforced cable they need. It would be much easier to buy the reinforced cable and then just screw it in the faucet and water line. The is the first faucet I purchased that had that plastic tubing and I don' like it or know how long it will last. It is very hard to bend and if you cut it too short, you are screwed. I would never purchase another faucet with the plastic tubing again. It wasn't easy to install because of the reasons above. December 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The new faucet such an improvement Our last faucet had become loosened over time from from movement, It was bolted from the underside of the sink, and consequently water had be able to cause damage to the under side of the counter. We had spent money to have a plumber (on multiple occasions)come to tighten and also to replace the mechanism to attach the sink. Our new faucet moves easily, and the switch to change from steady stream to sprayer use works so effortlessly. We're looking forward to years of worry free use of a terrific faucet. October 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Once repaired, it doesn't leak. I was surprised to have our new faucet leaking water so soon after installing it. I called Customer Support and a new cartridge was express shipped. On receipt of the new cartridge, I found it broken in transit. Another cartridge was shipped and it was received in good condition. After installing it, the leak was fixed and the faucet worked perfectly. Hopefully, the new cartridge will last longer. May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eye pleasing To me a faucet was always a faucet. Then I ran into my wife who taught me that delta faucets are the best. Tis faucet was actually replacing a delta faucet. Not because it was bad but needed to fit the décor in the kitchen. The pull out is what sold me and the spray option. SO easy to install and I hate plumbing work. I would recommend this faucet to anyone. October 7, 2015

Can the Grant faucet be installed on a stainless steel sink, that is, is there a minimum sink thickness for installing this faucet? If approved for installation in a stainless steel sink are there any additional installation steps not shown in the installation instructions?

Is there a way to adjust the water temperature on my Delta Model 16953 DST kitchen faucet?

There seems to be little or no variation in the handle to adjust to hot or cold water temperature. The water runs either scalding hot or freezing cold. If there is a way I can fix this issue, I would be very happy!! Thanks for your help!

Need a quick disconnect connector that will fit this faucet

I want to connect a portable washer to the 16953-DST faucet in my kitchen but the threads on the aerator are non-standard and I am not able to find an adapter. Please advise on the part # for an adapter to change from the aerator thread size to a standard aerator thread size - or - the part # for a quick connect that will fit this aerator thread and attach to 3/4in pipe thread.
Thanks!

Answer: 
Hi Dan, Thank you for your question. We do not recommend hooking up a portable dishwasher to the model 16953-DST faucet. Portable dishwashers should never be connected to Pull-out or Pull-down kitchen faucets due to potential pressure fluctuations during dishwasher operation that may result in rupturing of the hose.
Thanks,
Dave

It is made of cheap feeling plastic. It sounds hollow if you tap on it with your fingernail. Though, it looks like metal from a distance.
