Delta 9159-AR-DST Kitchen Faucet Review

Love Contemporary? You’ll Love This Faucet

In my experience most people don’t pay much attention to the faucets in their kitchens until they go wrong. Its only when this happens that we suddenly understand how much we take this appliance in our homes for granted.

Imagine not having running water in your kitchen for one day? It doesn’t bear thinking about really especially if you have a busy household. However, on the plus side most faucets will last many years, and for most of us we only think about changing them when we change the décor that surrounds it.

If it’s been some years since you were on the market for a kitchen faucet (or indeed, this is your first time) it may surprise you to know just how much choice is available. There are all sorts of designs to be found and faucets come in all shapes and sizes with as many or as few features as you would like.

Delta Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet

See it at Amazon

On this page of my website you’re about to find out about the Delta 9159-AR-DST single handle pull down faucet.
So, let’s get on with the exciting stuff!


If you prefer a more contemporary look, this faucet has a design that will fit the bill very nicely. It arches high over your sink, is sleek and looks simple yet stylish. Even the handle design has been thought about.

There are no fussy curves to deal with (making cleaning much easier), and best of all it comes in a variety of colors. You can choose from arctic stainless (which, incidentally has an incredibly subtle blue tinge to it), chrome, bronze or even champagne bronze for a more luxurious look.


Because of the high arc design this faucet provides you with a larger work area in your sink, making it perfect for those of you that have deep or big sinks. It’s even perfect for double sink designs because you can easily move it from one to the other.

Delta has used two different types of technology to help you get the best from this kitchen faucet.
The first deals with how the spray wand works. The manufacturer features a MagnaTite docking system which means when you’re not using the wand it stays firmly in place by magnetically attaching to the dock. It’s easy to use because of the pull down mechanism and the spray is aerated so you get maximum coverage.

The second piece of technology is something you won’t find with many other faucets, and that’s the use of Diamond Seal. Yes! Delta has used real diamonds to coat the inner surface of this faucet. This means you have the benefit of one of the hardest surfaces known to man, and your faucet will last for at least 5 million uses. Not only that, the coating inside also helps to protect this model from potential metal corroding contaminants that can be present in tap water.

In Conclusion

If you’re looking for a faucet in your kitchen that’s minimalistic in design, looks sleek and modern this is the model for you.
If you take a look at Amazon you’ll find many other customers have great things to say about this model. Plus, imagine being able to show off to your friends that you have a faucet that utilizes real diamonds!
