Hard to write a review. We were looking for a rare bird. Wanted 18 gauge stainless steel single bowl of this size (33 x 22) Finding one at under*** was a task. Upon first unpacking the sink, it looked fine. But when the old one was out and we went to install this sink, the back side left corner was warped. It was initially hard to see, but when we put it flat on the countertop, the problem became apparent. There would be seepage. Note: the sink was not well packaged, but the box was quite heavy and showed no dents or cuts. It was definitely a product issue...not packaging. We returned the item. Got a prompt and complete refund. So that was a considerable plus for this transaction. We did have the problem of a large hole in the countertop and no sink to fill it. Had to hit a local big box store and we did find, yes, an 18 gauge 33 x 22 single bowl stainless steel in stock. Caution: take a VERY good look...the imperfection (s...actually there was a warp along the back edge, too) was slight but in this type of product, it is critical. Our experience with Overstock has always been excellent, and on the whole, this one was too.
The sink is really great quality. We love the full size basin and the 9 1/2 inch depth. It's an Ariel, with 18 gauge steel, The drain is well made with the removable strainer basket (which has a handle) and a tight seal on the cover/plug. It's also really pretty. Just what we ordered.
I had read the reviews for the sink so as soon as it arrived I pulled it out of the box. I thought everything looked like it had already been pulled out of the box. There is a smaller box inside the sink and the contents were out and unwrapped. So when I got the sink completely out the right hand corner was crumpled, no damage to the box, so it was damaged at the factory. I strongly suspect that it had been shipped to someone before me.
This sink is beautiful and very well-sound-proofed. I can now barely hear my disposal. A big sink is a life-changer. No more fighting to wash pots in those little split pans. I actually do a lot of food prep in this sink - so it's like more counterspace that's very very easy to clean.
This is a very nice sink. It looks and functions well. It did not come with mounting brackets/clips. I had to locate some at my local hardware store and then adapt them to fit. If it came with mounting hardware, I would give it five stars.
"I did have to cut an additional inch of width out of the sink hole in my counter counter to get this in to replace my old double 33 inch sink, but after that the sink went in very well and sat snugly on the counter once everything was tightened down. Perfect hookup with my food disposal. This is a nice heavy duty sink."
Good value for the dollar considering single tub stainless kitchen sinks aren't as commmon as double tubs. Had to contact customer service for missing parts, but they responded quickly, positively, and even apologized for the oversight. A pleasure to deal with.
