If you have a small kitchen but need more of a sink, this is the sink to buy. We remodeled our small 10' by 10' kitchen over 4 years ago with the hope of being able to install a full size dishwasher. In order to accomplish this, we had to replace the double sink with something that would make this possible. This D-shaped sink was just what we needed. It 's width and depth have proved to be even more than we expected. We can soak a large roasting pan in it and then wash and rinse it very easily without getting water all over the counter.... something I could never do with my double sink. The stainless steel makes clean up easy and it still holds a nice shine. We are very happy with this purchase.

For any one that is interested in the manufacturers name,as it is not listed, it is Vigo. The actual sink is beautiful and rivals any offering by Blanco, Kohler, etc. It truly is worth the value and spares little to nothing in craftsmanship. My only complaint regarding the sink is the ability of it to get scratched; however after referencing other reviews regarding zero radius offerings from the aforementioned manufacturers I have found similar complaints about scratches. My wifes simple solution has been the use of a rack at the bottom of the sink. The sink comes well packaged and with all appropriate hardware for an under mount installation, with the exception of the drain. I chose to have it installed with a 1/4 inch reveal on all sides and the contact lip accommodates this well. It is insulated with what seems to be a sprayed rubber undercoating on the outside and also implements pads so that the sink is not tingy and reduces excess noise. Primarily the difference has been noticed in the operation of a 7 year old garbage disposal that has been abused and neglected by previous tenants living in the property. The sink is exceptionally deep and accommodates any two sized stock pots placed in it without the interference of using the faucet. A benefit not noticed until one utilizes the sink is the ability to place a multitude of items in it without worrying about splashing water as its depth contains it. Due to the walls of the sink being the same size of its opening, in addition to its zero radius design, you are able to fit large awkward items in it without effort. You can not comprehend the size of the sink unless you see it in person installed. It is so spacious that I have contemplated bathing our Beagle in it. If you are building an industrial, urban, modern or contemporary kitchen there is not other complement to your kitchen at this price point. I do not have any sort of buyers remorse regarding the sink other than not deciding on it sooner. Buy with confidence.

When we were in the process of planning our remodeled kitchen I fell in love with these farmhouse style sinks. I went to a few plumbing supply showrooms for pricing. Everything I liked was $1500 or more!! I decided to check here on Overstock and came across this sink. We were limited in size and this was one of the only ones that was going to fit.So we ordered it...and were so very surprised at how LARGE it is. It is such a beautiful sink and has become a showpiece in the kitchen. I have cream color cabinets and black appliances...so the stainless was a concern as well. Surprisingly....it looks awesome. The colors all blend very well.There is a grid that can be purchased for this sink. Unfortunately it isn't offered here on Overstock yet. But I HIGHLY recommend purchasing it to help maintain the beauty of your sink.I only gave Overstock a 4 out of 5 for value as I had to purchase the grid elsewhere. I hope they offer the grid here soon.All in all....a GREAT sink and another wonderful Overstock purchase.

Even though I had read all the reviews I still could not believe you could get a great sink at a great price like this. I purchased it thinking if I don't like it, I will just send it back. When it came in I opened the box and was surprised that it looked nice but was still a bit skeptical. Decided to go ahead and keep it..mainly because of the price. But when it was installed, that is when I came to realize completely...this is a great sink! It is beautiful. The depth is great (deeper than I expected) and when putting in my dishes and stuff you can tell it has that sound deafening insulation. Two professionals have come by the house doing other things and asked me where I got my sink. They are so surprised when I tell them how much I paid for it. Great job O! I don't normally give out 5 stars...so for me a 4 star is top.

First the sink. It is gorgeous. My Wife and I just finished renovating our kitchen and this was the last piece to the puzzle. It is super deep and just looks amazing. We used butcher block counters and this is great because I didn't have to cut rounded off corners. it's completely square. Now for the warning. First, installation instructions are completely useless. Basically they give you bolts with a thread system that needs to be countersunk. No biggie, what size drill should I use??? Well your guess is as good as mine. The ones I had were either too big or too small. To small and you can hammer in the countersunk nuts, too big and they just fall out. I compromised, used a smaller bit and just twisted the drill a bit. Then hammered them in. Some were great, some were too small and I started to smash the plastic nut, and some were too big..... It would have been 100 times easier to just use wood screws to screw the clamps on. I ended up doing a combo of wood screws in the clamps and drilled holes around the edge of the sink as well and screwed them in there. That was the first issue. Luckily working with wood I had a few work arounds, if you're working with a hard surface I don't want to be you. Second issue, this sink is HUGE! It barely fit in the 36" sink base we had. The faucet is a little closer to the window sill than I would prefer but there was no choice. I ended up having to undo a few of the clamps and spin them sideways because they were sitting on the edge of the sink base causing the counter to not sit flush. Also, word to the wise, if you can, install any and all fixtures BEFORE installing the sink/counter because once it's in, working around it is a nightmare. 3rd and final issue. It's HUGE. Because this is a deep sink to start, plus an undermount I HIGHLY recommend you measure the distance from your drain to the floor and figure out if there is a difference from your current sink to this. My problem was the between the added depth of the sink, and the fact that it's undermounted, I lowered the overall drain about 4"s. Doesn't sound like much till I realized I couldn't reconnect my P trap to the wall anymore..... I had to remove the garbage disposal and buy a different lower profile strainer basket that the one that comes with the sink and got lucky and was able to connect it. Long story short, be aware if you're current sink is shallower and or an overmount you want to make sure your drain will work. Overall this is a great deal. I highly recommend it. Just be aware you may need to make some rather expensive plumbing alterations by using it.

This is a very nice sink- especially for the price- even with duty and delivery. I live in Ontario and was a little worried about the delivery dates as I needed it for a specific date as I am having my kitchen redone. It said 8-16 days but it arrived in 4! The product was well packed and nothing was missing. I have been using it and it is a great size (I had a double sink previously and prefer this) the depth is good and the metal tray is helpful. I especially like the plug-no more fussing with pushing the plug in and hoping it stays.

Installed a week ago...very nice. Drains a bit slowly, but the look and usefulness are totally worth it. Poorly packaged...and I didn't notice a very slight dent in the corner until after it was installed...no one else would ever notice. Check it VERY carefully after it arrives. The mounting brackets were a challenge and the screws to hold them in place were silly...the threaded nut pulled out of the plastic insert too easily....I just used 3/4 inch screws. Overall, we love it!

I bought this for my new cabinets that has not been installed yet, so I cannot say anything about it except what it looks like. But the installer for my kitchen thought the sink looked top quality. Beautiful. Just what I imagined it would look like. Very happy. The only reason that I am giving it a 4 star is because it has not been installed or used at this time.

If you are looking for a quality economy sink for your remodeling project, this is the one.

Well everyone loves our new sink! The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that this really is a professional grade sink, but that term is not in the description. It is VERY large. Yes, the dimensions are listed, but most of us measure for width instead of depth and these are DEEP sinks. So if you need a large basin, or even think you will in the future it is worth the price.

The farmhouse sink is gorgeous and a beautiful addition to our kitchen. The problem arose when we realized that the drain hole was too small to fit a standard flange. We spoke to numerous persons at Overstock: 4 client care personnel, a parts supervisor, the actual manufacturer, and a client care supervisor, all without success. We were told that the sink just needed an Anaheim flange. Then we were told that it was handmade so there would be variations, then the promise of a new sink. And finally, a special elongated flange, which we had already tried was offered. After being without water and the use of a kitchen sink for almost two weeks, we asked the man putting in the counter to try and widen the drain whole with the promise that he would no be responsible for any cracks, etc. Fortunately, this procedure worked by using a special diamond bit drill. Two days later, the extended flange arrived, which we already had purchased earlier. Of course, it would not have fit either. I am so disappointed with Overstock.com that we will not use them again, even though I have used them for years. The way we were shuffled from department to department, the lack of promises to help being fulfilled, and the time and added expense was more than we ever want to live through again.

Couldn't believe the price on this item. Was almost *** dollars cheaper than any other online source. Item arrived within the quoted time frame and was ready for install.

Love this sink. Beautiful look and really updates the kitchen. Easy to clean with soap and water. No scratches like porcelain.

I bought this sink for my kitchen that will be re-modeled soon after seeing the same sink in another kitchen currently being re-modeled by the designer that is going to re-model my kitchen. It looked great there I'm sure will be look the same in my kitchen. The color is a coffee brown (java), not too dark which works well w/ varied neutral granite. Great value and although still in box, it was delivered with the box intact without signs of mishandle. So far I am quire impressed.

This is an excellent sink. It arrived on time, was packaged well, and seems to be good quality. I especially like that it came with the sink strainer, and bottom grid. I am very happy with the size, as we needed something large to fit in a 24" sink base. My only complaint, and the reason it did not receive 5 stars, is that the template that came with the sink is larger than the sink opening. The counter should hang over an undermount sink approx. 1/8-1/4". I had to make a new smaller template. Overall I am very happy with the sink and delighted to have it in my new kitchen.

In a kitchen remodel, we wanted a farmhouse sink that allowed use of our original cabinets. That meant a farmhouse sitting proud a little (3/4") and NOT interfering with the existing frame face and drawers. At 9" high front face, this fit the bill perfectly. And the price from Overstock fit the budget perfectly too !!! This is a classy installation, great to have the room of a large single compartment, and a really modern upgrade. Figure on a new faucet, by the way. Your old one will never look good against this sink !

I have installed standard undermounts from Vigo without a problem.. This one unfortunately came with no sink template, and had a couple flaws. After cutting the cabinet perfectly square to accommodate the sink width and height, the sink is actually 1/8" out of square on the left side. -33" inches across the bottom and 32 7/8" across the top, so it leaves a nice gap on one side, foolish me for thinking the sink would be square. Also the corners in the sink bowl look roughly polished by a big machine-- so the interior of the bowls appearance is not nice and evenly brushed or polished looking--And the last detail was the fact that the VIGO logo printed on the metal is 1/4" off center of the strainer hole, so lining up the logo with a centered faucet puts the faucet off center of the actual sink and strainer hole-- will any one else notice, depends on the client I suppose, but if your work strives to be perfect you might want to consider a different company or atleast double check yours before installing it.. Other than that I am sure the sink will drain and hold water like it is supposed to..

I love how deep this sink is and have received many compliments on it. Similar size and gauge sinks from plumbing supply stores were priced 3 or 4 times higher. My only complaint would be that the slope of the sink doesn't allow it to drain super well, so wiping it out frequently is required to keep it clean.

We remodeled our beach cottage kitchen and used this overmount sink. The size is ample as we have to handwash all dishes (no room for a dishwasher) and it is deep. The 18 gauge stainless is great quality. Love our new sink!
With this article, you will learn all you need to know on how to measure for a kitchen sink. It's important to get the sink dimensions correct when you begin your home improvement project because you usually need to cut the countertop material, and countertop material can be expensive. Correct dimensions and correct location will have a large impact on the beauty and usefulness of your new kitchen sink.
Whether buying a kitchen sink for the first time or as a replacement for your old kitchen sink, you probably have some questions about what size of kitchen sink you need. This article will help you choose the right size sink for your kitchen. The major things to consider are the depth, the shape, the available countertop space and if your countertop already has a cutout or needs one to be made. You will also want to consider the size of your kitchen. A cozy kitchen will look and function better with a size-appropriate sink as opposed to a jumbo triple-basin sink. On the flip side, large kitchens can accommodate larger sinks.
Did you know that odors can build up in garbage disposals around the blades, under the rubber rims and in the drain and pipes? Most people clean their kitchen sinks regularly but forget about one of the most important parts of kitchen sink, the garbage disposal. It can be tricky to reach into the disposal to remove the offending smelly residue, but with a little effort, you can quickly restore freshness to your drains. Using simple methods, you can degrease and deodorize garbage disposals while sharpening the blades to reduce future odor accumulation.
