Like the depth of the sink. Just what I wanted. The sink itself with some sealing rubber along the ends resulted in a more perfect seal compared to the replaced sink. However, the hole in the counter had to be enlarged. The result is a better seal than the older one. If you are replacing an old sink of this size be prepared to get out the saw. Very pleased with the sink.

We had purchased a double sink for a kitchen renovation project and just checked out overstock on a whim ... VERY glad we did!!! This sink was not only of a higher caliber ... 18 gauge vs 20 as well as deeper by an inch ... but it was almost 1/2 the cost with free shipping! It is truly a fabulous sink ... very rich looking and well worth the extra time to return the other sink -- usually a pain in itself!!

I bought this sink as a replacement for my existing porcelain sink when I decided to re-tile my kitchen counter top. I wanted to stay with a single sink as was my original. My existing sink was done under mount tile in. I wanted to do the same thing as I don't like drop in sinks with a lip on the counter top. This sink I chose is 16 gauge stainless. All the stainless steel sinks I had looked at in various stores were 20 gauge which were a bit too thin in my opinion. Of course a 16 gauge sink costs more but I wanted to make sure I would be happy with my choice since I only planned on doing this job once. When I got the sink I was struck with the depth of this thing. It looked deeper than I expected (even though I knew the dimensions). At first glance my wife thought it was too deep but I think after she uses it for awhile, she will come to like the benefits of a deeper sink. My tile job is now complete and my new kitchen counter top looks great. The original counter top was done in the "50s so now it is modernized up do date. This sink in the counter top looks great and is very well made. I like the insert that goes in it and the little basket in the sink drain. I also like the forward facing drain position. This is my first stainless steel sink so I have to get used to the extra attention that stainless steel requires (such as cleaning water drop stains, etc). All in all very satisfied with this sink.

We recently installed this sink as part of our kitchen remodel. We were thrilled to find such a large sink that would fit inside our 30 in Ikea sink base cabinet. It fits perfectly and only required a small amount of routing on the sides and front of the cabinet to accommodate the lip of the sink under our countertop. Because of the depth of the sink, we had to mount the sink about 4.5 inches back from the front of the countertop so it did not interfere with the cabinet door hinges, but looks fine installed this way and still very functional. Water pools slightly under the feet of the metal rack, so I am not sure if we will continue to use that daily, but a nice feature for scrubbing heavy items, oven racks, etc that might scratch the finish of the sink. There was a label inside the sink that left adhesive behind that was difficult to remove, but it is all cleaned up now & left no permanent mark. Overall, a wonderful, high quality sink 20-30% less than we found anywhere else. Super fast shipping, as usual!

Kraus Undermount Single Bowl Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink with Grid has been a hit at my house. This sink is 16 gauge T304 stainless steel, making it a higher grade than I thought I could afford. It has padding to reduce noise, and a condensation coating, so it met all my qulaity requirements. The box it arrived in was sturdy, and the contents beautifully packed; as a result, everything arrived in great shape. The price was significantly lower than what I found at big box stores or granite yards. The template was accurate. The grid and towel that came with the sink are high quality. The drain appeared to be good quality as well; I particularly liked the deep strainer basket with handle, that was part of the drain assembly, and was disappointed that I couldn't use that drain with a garbage disposer. With the sink having only one drain hole, and so many people owning garbage disposers, that particular drain is more of a marketing gimmick than anything. It would make sense for the manufacturer to offer the consumer a choice between that drain, or a quality garbage disposer friendly drain and stopper. Since the price for this sink, with grid, drain and towel, was significantly less than most comparable sinks alone, I felt the drain was not a major issue. This sink is 9" deep. It offers plenty of room for anything I need to do in the sink, and reduces splashes from the new pull-down faucet. The sink is easy to clean. While the squared corners on some sinks look very stylish, I preferred the rounded, easy to clean corners of this sink. What I find funny is every single guy who has seen our remodeled kitchen gravitates to the sink and enthuses over it. They like that they have room to move around and not bang anything. I must agree. Though I am small, and joked that I had to be careful not to lean over the sink too far or I might fall in, as I use it I love that I can wash and rinse large cutting boards and pans without the usual maneuvers you have to use when you have a double sink. I took a risk changing from a double sink to the single sink, but I do not regret it at all. If I ever have a need for two sinks I can use a dishpan. In summary, I find the quality, size and features of this sink are five stars. As a minor point, I would suggest the manufacturer provide the option of a drain that is garbage disposer compatible.

I put this sink in a red ikea cabinet kitchen with grey concrete countertops in my loft. It looks outstanding, pairing well with other stainless steel appliances. It is very heavy, quality material. Comes with all the expected materials. The perfectly sized metal rack at the bottom was a first to me but is a wonderful addition. I actually think this is an outstanding value item, and will last 20+ years, and just looks terrific in a variety of different kitchen looks. Buy with confidence.

This is the best quality stainless steel sink I have seen in over 20 years working in the UK kitchen industry. Much heavier than European sinks, it reflects the guage of the steel. Beautifully made, it does not feel or look like a commercial sink but it has the caoacity and function. It takes a large Aga roasting tin. Its very deep so double check how you mount it/height of finished worktop so you dont end up with a sore back. DHL were brilliant - it arrived in under a week to the UK. Great packaging. Thoughtful additions, eg unpacking straps to make it easier to get out of the box. racks, cloth etc. I have used US sinks/plumbing in UK kitchens before, so I dont think any decent plumber will have a problem finding the right guage of connectors - will let you know.! Thanks for great service.

I bought this sink for our kitchen remodeling from lots of good review from forum. The value and style was unbeatable. However, after installed it, we found out there were brown spots randomly appearing in the corner or the edges in the very beginning and we didn't start using it except splashed with water. I kept telling myself that it must not be the rusting because it supposed to be STAINLESS! Even we used to live in the apartment, we never seen a stainless steel sink with rusting... Besides sometimes when we were pouring hot water into the sink, the metal made the bounce or popping sound which liked the panel was not thick enough. Again, that was supposed to be 16 gauges heavy duty stainless steel... how come it felt like 20 gauges+? Since it was under-mount sink, it was very labor intensive to be replaced or not even talking about to get another brand because of the different size from different manufacturers. I called the Ruvati and spoke with the warranty department. What surprised me was the guy even told me it was NORMAL and to get Barkeeper's Friend cleaner from Walmart to clean the brown spots.... I was like,"are you kidding me?" How come they even said it was normal? Then I asked him what if the spots kept showing up. He said they could replace the sink only but not cover the labor cost. It may be debatable if they should cover the labor. However, it was pretty obvious that the quality had some problem. It was not a normal appliance that could be changed so easily. It has to involve sometimes and labor to do it. Then he also said their sink was 16 gauges and not suppose to have the popping sound from hot water. I was speechless about his response. Anyway, I know you can get this style of sink from any brand with this affordable price. However, if I know all this in the beginning, I rather to pay double for something else. Thanks for reading. I hope whoever wants to get this sink, please test it before you install it. If you find out it has the same problem as mine, get an exchange or something else.

I buy houses and renovate them for resale so I order a good many kitchen and bath items from Overstock. This is the most expensive sink I've ever ordered and I should have stuck with the less expensive models. It was not made as a single piece of stainless steel. There was a rim on top with two bowls attached with a band underneath. I've never seen a double bowl stainless sink made this way. It was bent so that the smaller bowl was not level with the larger one. I didn't realize that until the granite was being installed. The installer used a board to push the smaller bowl up and screwed it to the cabinet so that they could go ahead with the install. It looks and works fine now but that's only because I had granite guys who knew how to fix a defective sink.

Xlnt heavy SS sink. Most are 18 or 20 gage. This heavy duty 16 gage unit also features exceptionally attractive and unique design. Beautiful match with our new granite countertops

I did a tremendous amount of research before purchasing this sink. I specifically wanted 16 gauge because it is thicker and stronger than 18 gauge, and thus less likely to show dents, etc. I also wanted to purchase a sink from a manufacturer that had a solid reputation. This sink met all of my requirements. It looks fabulous installed undermount with my granite. The sink was shipped with a drawstring cover over it for protection against abrasions. It also came with the strainer assembly, protection grid insert, and a dish towel. Kraus knows what to do to achieve customer satisfaction. I couldn't be happier.

The quality is great---it's a 16 gauge stainless steel sink (HD and L___'s give you a 18 or 20 gauge sink (the lower the gauge the better the quality) for this price. I love the sleek modern look of one big sink....and the grate to protect the sink is a wonderful added feature.

Very nice, solid, great packaging .. loved the sink drain choices. Especially nice having the removable stainless trays. It seems to protect the finish. Very deep bowls. Definitely an improvement over my old standard builder grade sink of 20 plus years. Perfect with the granite counters.

I had been trying to get a sink for my 30 inch cabinet for a while. It was hard finding one to begin with and when I came upon several at different brick and mortar stores they wall were a lot more expensive and with lower quality.This is a 16 gage sink, most department store stainless steel sinks are 18 or 20 gage. This is a professional grade sink and it looks awesome.

I did quite a bit of research before purchasing this sink. After making the rounds to the local home improvement stores, virtually everything they carried was either 20 or 22 gauge, and extremely ordinary looking. This is the classiest sink I've ever seen. I also purchased the Kraus stainless steel faucet. The packaging was SUPERB. It basically was shipped in a small crate.....It arrived quickly and without a scratch. You can't go wrong with this one!

This sink is modern, spacious and a steal at this price. It comes with a template and mounting parts too. I actually had to return it because it would not fit the depth of my countertops(front of cabinet to back of cabinet/wall), along with the faucet holes. The shipping back was a bit painful and I had to reschedule my countertop installation, so I would recommend double checking the 20" depth with your installer before purchasing. If they give you the green light or if you are installing wall mounted faucets, you will not be disappointed with the quality and design of this very attractive, quality sink.

This sink is just gorgeous! I have mine mounted flush with my granite, as the edges are so lovely that I did not want to cover them. This also keeps the edges of my granite safe from chips when using my heavy cast iron pots. Having it flush is also a near perfect match with my JA stainless cooktop that is on the opposite counter. I had a bit of hesitation when ordering a divided sink since single bowls seem to be the trend at the moment, but I'm so glad I went with my gut. I really prefer to keep the garbage disposal to one side. My old sink was a 42" triple bowl with the garbage disposal in the shallow center, and this guy has so much more room! Even my largest skillet can fit perfectly in the smaller size. Friends with single bowls can't fit their sink grids in the dishwasher. Not a problem for me! The sink, grids, and drain are very easy to clean. I had a SS sink more than 20 years ago that was just awful and I had sworn to never get one again. I don't know if something has changed in those 20 years, or if I just had a poor quality sink then, but this one is so much better! If there were anything I would change, it would be to give just a bit more slope to the bottoms. I do have to chase things down the drain with my pull-down, but it's really not too bothersome. Plus, I figure the extra 15 seconds I spend rinsing is part of what keeps my sink looking so clean and shiny :)

I live in Hawaii, which does not always have the same selection or availability of items as other places do. All of the hardware stores in my area were charging twice as much for sinks that were 20 gauge, and which did not have the extras not this one had. Most online companies will either not ship to Hawaii, or will charge exorbitant fees. Well the shipping for this item was not necessarily cheap, I did find it to be very reasonable since it is a somewhat bulky item. Because I have experienced this so many times in the past, I half expected to get some kind of notification that the item could not really be shipped here as promised. Instead, my new sink came in record time, and was in beautiful condition when I opened the box. I'm so excited to have it installed, and will definitely purchase items from overstock.com again in the future!

Sink is lovely and has great modern design! Very solid, heavy, high quality materials. Exactly what I was looking for but sadly it's too big for my standard 24" deep cabinet and has to be returned. The 20" dimension (front to back) is too large and does not leave enough room for my faucet which needs at least 2 1/2" clearance from the back splash to the center of the faucet hole. It may have squeezed in if we pushed it well forward but I'd lose the front drop down apron I paid extra for on my cabinet for sponge storage and there would be hardly any counter on the front of the sink. It would work if you had a side mounted faucet in a 24" cabinet but this would not work in my design. Have to suggest if you are putting in an island or if you have an extra deep base cabinet, say 26".

I loved this sink when I first bought it! It had a beautiful finish, not too shiny. Now that I've been using it for six months, the finish is marred with scratches. The sink comes with a removable bottom rack, presumably to prevent scratches, but I couldn't keep it in all the time because it was difficult to rinse all particles out of the sink with the rack in place, and the rack itself became a net for all kinds of debris. As I used the rack less and less, and dishes, silverware, pots and pans came in contact with the bottom of the sink, I began to notice lots of scratches, some of them significant. Also the sides are scratched where pots and pans have hit them during washing. So, the sink already looks damaged. One positive note is that I like the depth of the sink and the dimensions, with one larger tub and one smaller tub. I find that design is practical. Overall, the sink is okay, but I don't think I'll get 20 years out of it, as I did with the sink this one replaces (which also was stainless steel, but far more resistant to scratches).
Sinks come in many different styles, materials, sizes, and colors. Finding a functional yet beautiful sink doesn't have to be a challenge. Whether you're shopping for a sink for your kitchen, your bathroom, or another room in your house, this is what you need to know while you shop.
The sinks in your home see a lot of use. And over the years, they need to be replaced. When you start shopping for sinks, you may run across plumbing terms and sink-related words that aren't familiar. This glossary will help you with the common words you may run into while shopping for sinks for your kitchen or bath.
A common fixture in restaurant kitchens, pot fillers are becoming more and more common in home kitchens because they are so practical and attractive. You can find both deck-mount pot filler faucets, which mount on the countertop like a regular kitchen faucet, and wall-mount pot fillers, both of which install near the stove and have articulated arms that fold out over the stove when you want to fill a pot and fold neatly against the wall when not in use. If you're not sure whether or not you're interested in a kitchen-pot filler, keep reading for information on the advantages of owning a pot filler faucet.
Knives are amongst the most important tools in the kitchen and will last a lifetime when well-maintained. Kitchen knife blades are typically made of high-carbon stainless steel alloys, which stay well-sharpened and are easy to maintain. However, some knives are made of pure carbon steel, which keep a sharper edge but are also prone to rust and discoloration. Regardless of what type of kitchen cutlery you prefer, care guidelines remain the same. Proper care of kitchen cutlery ensures a long life of use.
Crafting your home into a comfortable and attractive space is an ongoing project. Whether you're just replacing one fixture or embarking on a large-scale remodel, making style choices and home improvements can be very rewarding. This home improvement buying guide summarizes a few of the projects that you might consider trying in your home.

Regular use of paper shredders creates paper dust that can dry out components, dull the blades, clog the machine and burn out the motor. However, with proper oiling and maintenance, a paper shredder can last for years.Oiling a shredder can be accomplished using one of two quick methods. The paper method limits excess oil to the paper, reducing the chance of it splattering when you turn the machine back on. This method is more common than the second and can be used with all kinds of shredders. The paperless method may be less common, but it is just as effective at removing dust buildup from the blades of the shredder. Whichever method you choose, read the manufacturer's instructions before oiling the shredder and be sure to use manufacturer-approved lubricant, as the wrong oil can damage the machine.
