Assembly Required - Rubber - Kitchen Sinks

We bought our sink for a remodel. We made big mistake - didn't account for depth of sink. It is very deep and if you have to line up existing plumbing this could pose a problem, especially in a 1970's house. The sink itself is great - very sleek looking. My only complaint is that the wire inserts they give you to put in the sink to protect it actually rub and mar the sink up themselves. I keep the wire inserts in all the time - so you can't tell until you remove the inserts. Then you see small rub marks on the 4 spots where the wire insert rubber parts touch the sink. Minor detail - great sink though, especially for the price.

I've had this sink sitting in a box for two months (kitchen remodel) and last week the carpenter finally installed it. Fabulous sink. It looks great with my decor, but also the carpenter said it was a great sink. The rubberized backing is really nice and keeps the noise down--no noise really. I thought about buying a cheaper model--100ish dollars--I'm so glad that I bought this one. Also, I like the Kraus label that's etched into the sink--it looks high end and is a nice finish touch.

This sink has a shelf that comes across the back top where the 4 cut out holes are. On left-most hole i installed a GE water filter faucet (smaller bar sink sized faucet) and it juts out over the ledge towards center of sink. So water would not get underneath this jutting out faucet and then under my sink, i added a stripe of clear caulk under it. Then in 2nd from left hole i installed a full sized Kohler faucet with removeable sprayer head. It also juts out over the ledge a bit - even though we tightened it into the hole as far back as possible - and again i added a stripe of clear caulk to keep water from getting under it and then underneath my sink. The sprayer head on this faucet is something I use way more often than I did on my old double sink because foodstuffs poured into the sink will spread all around the bottom and I have to chase them down into the center drain to move it into my disposal. The basin does slant down towards the drain but not as much as I would like. Because my disposal has its own drain assembly I could not and did not get to use the nice matching drain basket assembly that came with this sink. In the rightmost hole on the back ledge I installed the matching soap dispenser that came with my Kohler faucet and it also juts out over the ledge a little bit towards the basin. Hence I put a bit of clear caulk under this jutting out ledge to prevent water from leaking underneath my sink. The 2nd from the right hole I just installed a blocked cover and it is the only piece that fits inside the back ledge without jutting out over it towards the basin. The grid that comes with this fits inside the basin but does not fit the basin - several of its black rubber feet float and only when something heavy is on it do they bend down and touch the basin. Under these feet it seem food stuffs like to collect and hide so I am always rinsing around them with my faucet's sprayer head. I'm not sure this grid offers any real benefit to the using of this sink. The cutting board does not fit across the top of this sink at all and just for this reason I would have liked to exchange the sink but I had to open and unwrap it all to find this out and it was too much trouble to repackage it all and mail it back. Plus I upgraded to this nicer quality of stainless steel so my hard water would not spot as badly as it did in my older sink but after reading its directions it says that yes, indeed, hard water will spot this sink. Without using a scale removing cleaner I cannot keep this sink looking shiny. Thus another disappointment for which I would have liked to exchange this sink. The sound is dampened adequately in this sink and it doesn't easily get scratched. I live with it but I don't love it.

We bought this sink for our kitchen remodel and it arrived very quickly. The look and feel of this unit is very high quality and it is as advertised. The dimensions of the two sinks are perfect and it installed without a hitch. It also comes with 2 grates with rubber feet to prevent scratching of the bottom surface, though you do have to be careful not to drop cutlery in between the grates because it will scratch the bottom -- but that is to be expected with any type of sink. The sound deadening works really well. Overall this sink feels like it will last a long time and it looks very stylish in our new kitchen!

This sink from Ruvati comes with grates that fit in each bowl and have black rubber on the bottom that sits in the sink so as to not scratch/wear the actual bowl. The sink is well insulated and not as noisy as the plain stainless sinks that are available in big department stores. The sink comes with a cardboard cut template for the countertop but we just gave the sink to our countertop people in order to cut the countertops. The divet in the top of the sink limits the kind of faucet setup but in our case it was perfect with the single hole faucet and a sprayer on the side. There are little strainer buckets that sit in the drain and are easy to pull out and clean. The middle bowl is shallow compared to the two big side bowls, and we mainly use that for silverware or washing vegetables. We've gotten lots of compliments on the sink about the unique shape, the size, and the depth.

This 16 gauge (the best gauge) is a wonderful addition to my renovated kitchen. It is the first large single sink with no dividers and wonder why I ever used a divider sink before. It comes with a fitted stainless steel rack on rubber feet which protects the bottom of the sink and a monogrammed kitchen towel with hook. Big roasters, fry pans with long handles, etc., they all fit nicely into the sink for easy cleaning. Products was excellently packaged. I previously had a Kohler white divided sink that took a lot of maintenance and was difficult to wash larger kitchen items. I'm still getting used to stainless steel water spots but find wiping down the sides of the sink after using is very easy, one large swipe around and I'm done. I highly recommend this durable product. Kraus is an excellent brand.

Heavy gauge, fully insulated bowl with rubber pads all around. nice and deep. When you use the garbage disposal you don't hear a lot of noise due to the thickness and padding. I wish I could have gone a little bigger from front to back but this does nicely. No complaints at all. I would highly recommend this sink to anyone!

After using the Kraus kitchen sink for almost three months, I am very satisfied. They are sturdy, they remain lustrous and easy to keep that way, and the grids that accompanied the sink are great. The sink looks very nice with our new earthtones granite countertop. Everyone thinks that the sinks and the Krauss faucet are top quality. Kraus even included extra rubber tips for the grids. Kraus also packs the sink and attachments very securely.

We had an unplanned kitchen renovation due to ice dam damage, so sometimes one has to punt on decisions. Having had the standard stainless sinks and enameled cast iron, I was sold on stainless overall and needed one fast. Ours was to be an under-mount sink below granite. Finally. This sink has equal bowls versus our previous sink with the smaller, shallower bowl for the disposal. But each bowl is ample to any task we have. Just an expectation thing before you buy. Standard stainless steel sinks as you may find, tend to be of thinner gauges, 20 GA being a baseline standard and 18 being heavy-duty, relatively speaking. Our Ruvati sink bridges the residential and commercial lines beautifully; utility without fanfare. The features that made this the sink to have for us: 16 GA stainless steel. (Ruvati did this one better, with welded reinforcing plates as well. No drumming!) Dropped center divider. This is a design feature that is remarkably scarce but was a must-have. When washing in one sink and rinsing in the other, a dropped divider allows the flowing sink to skim off into the dry or rinse sink, well below the rim. At once a safety feature, but any soap or grease floats off cleanly. This center divider is a full two inches below the rim. That means even more clearance below the goose-neck faucet. Hardware: The drain baskets are simple yet elegant. Our plumber loved them. Comes with gaskets (but still use plumber's putty), they went together with no fuss. What is more, instead of the cupped basket one finds in a standard sink drain, the Ruvati has a small perforated stainless steel "bucket basket" with a bail handle. Simple and easy to dump into the disposal side. The stoppers are flat knob plates with rubber gaskets. Perfectly water-tight and a far sight better than the twist type strainer baskets/stoppers that have been around since I Like Ike buttons were the rage. Accessories: Total bonuses A cutting board that fits in the sink rim shelf. Board is OK, could be longer as the fit is too loose. But easy to make one to your liking. A vegetable basket, stainless with wood handles, also fits in the sink rim shelf. Good for soaking silverware after a party, washing and draining vegetables. Nice touch. Sink bottom stainless steel rack shelves. Ostensibly to keep the sink bottom from being marred by large pots and pans, these racks are sturdy, sit an inch off the bottom and have a neat opening for the drain. No more lifting these kinds of racks to drain the sink. The only defect with this sink was one of the corners of the rim plane was bent to a 45 degree angle, as if the sink were dropped. There was no damage to the box so this was a bit odd. Still, two blocks of wood and screw clamps took the dent out and brought it into alignment in no time. It seated as well as could be. So we have all of the features and durability of a commercial sink with a very understated (and a bit modern) restrained look.
Whether you're building a new home or remodeling your old kitchen, you may have some questions about kitchen sink size. 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. Read More
