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.

I've had my farmhouse sink installed for about three months and it is beautiful. I have no regrets about this purchase, but there are a couple of things that you should know about this sink in case they matter to you: - The drain hole is not centered, but to the side. There is no back or front to the sink so you can decide if you want the drain on the left or the right. - There is a small light blue brand mark on the sink that shows when it is installed. Since there is no back or front to the sink, it appears on both sides, so you cannot avoid it showing. I don't mind it, so it isn't an issue for me, but it IS NOT shown on the pictures of this sink, which I consider to be dishonest. I don't know if the manufacturer was trying to hide it or if Overstock was, but it should be shown. That being said, I love the sink. Before you choose a farmhouse sink you should also be aware that some people have problems with the water splashing down the front and dripping into the cabinet because of its shape. There are solutions to this problem. You can install something called a drip rail. (Googlle it if you're interested.) I was careful to pick a faucet that doesn't splash and I haven't had problems. There are advantages to farmhouse sinks other than their beauty. There is more room behind the sink than you generally have, so there is plenty of space for soap, sponges, etc. They are pushed beyond the perimeter of the counter a bit, making it easier to make use of the whole sink. If you are getting a stone counter top like marble or granite, consider using an eased edge. It looks very good with farmhouse sinks.

I paired this sink with a Kraus faucet. They make a perfect combination. The quality is superior. The design is as well. These really pop my new Volga blue countertop. They're efficient, too. The sink is deep and makes cleaning up a breeze. I wish I had this sink years ago. Highly recommend.

Sink looks great! Very nice and deep. We've had it 6 months now and it still looks great. Like the depth and the wide single basin. We put in the wire sink mat and it really helps when doing dishes. Would definitely recommend this set for anyone doing a kitchen remodel. We took a 1980's pale blue ktichen into the 21st century with stainless appliances, granite countertops, and stainless and glass backsplash. This style sink fit perfectly!

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 bought this sink for a kitchen in a one room cabin; the whole kitchen consists of one counter that is 82" long, in the corner of the cabin. That does not leave much room for a sink, so this one is the perfect size. I shopped at many box stores, and could not find this size. The price was also reasonable for the quality. Buyers need to understand the difference between an undermount and a drop in sink. This one is an undermount, so it requires a solid countertop (like quartz or other rock)--you cannot use a laminate or other porous material with an undermount. You may want the professional that cuts the opening in your solid countertop to also mount your sink--it is not as easy as a drop in. I did that, have a lovely Blue Pearl Gabbro counter, and love this sink.
