I did receive the sink in a timely manner, however: -- the top lip of the larger bowl had a 2 inch dent in it that I had to straighten out with a hammer -- I did not receive the sink traps and undermount clips with the shipment, and had to call Overstock Customer service to get this corrected. They did have this out to me within 2 weeks of my inquiry.

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 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.

Sink was not as deep as advertised, unless you measure from the bottom of the drain on the underside. It was challenging to fit it in along with a faucet on a standard 24" deep counter. However, I really do like the sink in the end. It is nice and deep enough for handwashing a big tub of dishes.

This sink is really good quality. The big bowl is HUGE! I can finally soak a full size broiler pan lying flat in the sink. And the small sink is the perfect size for prep. I had a similar sink in another house that lists for about $700, and this one is deeper. Most people would say that's a really good thing. But I have to lean over to reach to the bottom and that can be a little hard on the back. The sink is awesome, it's just a case of "be careful for you wish for..."

This sink looked promising and is large and beautiful upon installation. Within 2 weeks of use, it began to rust. I have not used any abrasive cleaners or any scouring pads. Also, if you don't immediately put some kind of cushion, rubber pad or other protective device on the bottom, the bottom becomes scratched with little effort. The new granite countertop was measured and cut to size and it is now undermounted. I have no way of replacing it without added expense. I do not recommend this product. I should have spent more and gotten better.
