Just received this from Overstock for the house I'm having built. Can't comment on if it holds water or not, but it is a BEAUTIFUL sink!!!!!!!!!!! Huge and high quality stainless! The price was fantastic and was way under my original budget, which is great for me AND my builder!! I am so looking forward to having the house finished and the sink installed. Would definitely suggest this sink to someone. And, even though the brand wasn't mentioned, it is Kingston Brass and that company has been around for quite awhile and has a good reputation. Great sink!!! And, my 5th sink to buy for the new house!!!
This stainless steel farm sink by Kingston arrived securely packaged and in perfect condition. It is heavy grade stainless with full underpadding. Please note when purchasing your kitchen cabinets that you will need to order a sink cabinet that will accomodate a farm sink. My husband, a contractor and master tilesetter, and I both recommend this product for its functionality and form. This quality and style of sink will retail at upwards of $1,000. Comparable to Kohler brand which can retail $2,700.
This sink looks great in our new kitchen. It is large, but doesn't look ridiculous. It can hold a big stock pot and lots of other dishes around it. Love the farmhouse sink look. Husband had to talk me into it, but now I'm totally sold. I would buy it again!
Great product from a great company. I have used this sink for four years now and the only real issue is food debris does not clear the botton of the somewhat flat bottom, requiring you to use your hand or dish rag to push it into the drain/disposal. Great looking stain steel sink.

After reading the reviews, we chose this sink. Installed, it is even more spectacular than we expected. We have a brand new kitchen and the sink stands out and receives so many compliments. The one thing to consider is the depth of the apron front. We custom built our sink cabinet doors because it was two inches deeper than the standard farm sink. Well worth it - we are very impressed.
This was my first overstock purchase and I'm incredibly impressed with the value and quality of my new farmhouse sink. I purchased the sink back in April, but it has just been installed. It looks great and fits perfectly with my kitchen decor. There are no flaws and it really has an expensive look for a great price. It's also very deep (which is why I wanted the farmhouse style) and is great for washing my big pots/pans. I would highly recommend this purchase.
This sink is a great value compared to other similar sinks, and was easy to install. Get lots of comments about how great it looks. Main issue is that the flat bottom is hard to keep clean and it also scratches relatively easily (and the scratches show). You may consider a protective mat/grid for the bottom when you're giving it heavy use.
We really like the Farm house sink. It is beautiful and very functional. Installation was a little trickier but the results were stunning. The only knock is there are 2 hidden support brackets that are glued into place. I guess they are in place for shipping purposes because if they were meant to be structural, I hope they would have welded them. Once installed properly and fully supported the brackets didn't add any funcionality. The instruction should have mentioned this b/c the glued bracket will break loose almost immediatly upon taking out of the packaging. It's a little alarming when you have just purchased a new sink and parts are breaking right out of the box. Overall Excellent purchase. This sink will definitely make you kitchen stand out from the rest.
I loved my sink when it first arrived. I took it out of the box and examined it for dents. Did not find any visible damage but since it was going to be 2 weeks before the granite was ready I choose to leave the protective "blue" wrap on. The day for the instillation came, my husband removed the protective wrap and found 2 very small indentions at the bottom corners of the apron. It was two late to do anything because the countertops and sink had togo in that day. You can only see them when the light shine just right but I know they are there and I makes me sick. Check your sink out good on arrivial.
I needed a farm house sink for my kitchen remodel. I thought I was going to have to fork out a grand for the ceramic version (didn't want to chance it on the Ikea version- heard they crack) and found this alternative. It goes well with my stainless stove & frigde and didn't require the extra support the ceramic would have dictated.

I purchased this sink for a complete kitchen reno. It's one of my favorite things about the new kitchen. The sink is deep and wide enough to hold big pots and cookie sheets without sticking up above the sink. I can easily submerge large items and clean them with ease without splashing dishwater all over the kitchen. I had seen some high end sinks that cost thousands of dollars and couldn't bring myself to spend that kind of money. This sink was a great compromise. I've been using it for over a year now and it has really held up. One helpful tip from our installer was to put some cushioning underneath the bottom of the sink to minimize pinging sounds from the stainless steel. It has been good with the sound as well as provided extra support for the bottom of the sink.
This sink is great looking but no so functional...there is a problem with getting all the water to drain from the corners....

We bought this sink to replace an undermount sink with slab granite counter tops. A difficult job to begin with and the measurements had to be perfect. This is the only sink I could find that would work that was not over $2,500. The sink is made in China, which I try not buy from, but this sink was very well made. I could use additional insulation as mentioned in a previous review, which we did before installing. We cut away the granite in front, had somone polish the edges and it looks wonderful. For the price you cannot beat this product. Also, note we did not install the sink as an undermount we cut the old sink out and installed it as a flush mount which worked perfectly.
This was my first purchase with Overstock. My daughter recently purchased the same sink and loves it. Once my wife saw our daughter's sink installed she wanted it as well. The transaction and delivery went smoothly. The temporary installation into a standard 36" sink base took a bit of work but doable (I needed to redo the waste line anyway). I will soon be installing it into my new cabinets once they arrive. The sink is very large and a great addition to our kitchen. I recommend a pad or grid in the bottom as others have said, to avoid scratching. I would definately recommend this sink to anyone.
