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.
We purchased this sink about two years ago and I was so impressed with the quality and look when it was installed. However, as a homeowner (and dishwasher!) I would want to point out two issues to those considering purchasing this sink. First, the remnants from the dirty dishes do not get washed easily from this particular sink, as the base is very even and care needs to be taken to wash all food particles from the four corners. Second, several spots on the sink started to show signs of wear (dark roundish discoloration) that would not come off with stainless steel cleaner or any other product I tried. That being said, I received a lot of compliments on the look of this sink, and in general I was quite pleased with it.
The Kraus sink compares favorably in materials and workmanship to sinks costing more than twice as much. Important installation note: the 30 inch sink must be installed in a 33 inch cabinet, and lateral supports must be added on the sides of the cabinet to support the weight of the sink. Not hard, but not to be overlooked either.
The sink should be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner. Bartender's Friend is a good choice.
Over time, the "feet" of the protective rack in the bottom of the sink will leave small smudge marks. But it's a small price to pay to protect the sink from damage from pots and pans.
This sink you have to cut down your base cabinet to have it sit on. We decided it would be stronger if we just built a base ourselves. Worked out great. You really don't realize how beautiful this sink is until you put your countertop on and see the complete picture. We have the sink sticking out and the cabinet doors below look great. I have a very small kitchen (co-op) and everyone was telling me it wouldn't look right. It would make the kitchen look smaller. They were wrong.....it's perfect. A kitchen remodel that cost 2,500.00 looks like it cost double with this sink. Everyone asks me how much did you spend and when I tell them....they are shocked. This will be one purchase you won't regret.
The sink was absolutely great, just what we wanted. Unfortunately the base cabinet that we had for it was not the right size for the sink. I am writing this review just to say how great Overstock was about returning it. I chatted with a person on line, got a shipping label, packed it up and dropped it off at UPS. They were very nice and it was easy. I will definitely shop at Overstock again because of this experience.

Great sink & we love it so far. We've only been using it for about 3 weeks, so can't comment on how it will hold up, but so far, so good. Part of our decision to go with a farm sink was that we are expecting our first baby next month so bath time in the sink would be much easier & it's extra spacious for large pans/pots as well. The quality seems very good & our plumber said it was much better than the ceramic farm sinks he often sees. The reason for 4 stars vs 5 was the install was more complicated than expected. Farm sinks have to be installed prior to granite, so the granite can be templated around them(learned this). Our granite installer didn't use the template as it shows the counters not overhanging the sink, which we wanted them to hang over the sink about an 1/8 or 1/4" so that food wouldn't get stuck along the seam & instead brushes right into the sink. The sink required extra support at the back as it's much heavier than a standard sink, which wouldn't have been an issue, except the metal/steal underneath extends farther, so when the plumber went to install the faucet the standard hole (I believe 1.5" from sink) was still too close to the steel that is underneath the cabinet, so faucet wouldn't fit. We had to have granite guy come back and move the hole back (also making it larger- luckily our faucet had a large base or this would have been an issue), so that the faucet could get past the steel underneath. This also meant cutting out some of the bracing below & moving those supports. This seemed to surprise both our plumber & granite contractor, so I think this is something that may be unique to this sink (not sure), but something to be aware of for install. Besides that hiccup, it's great!! We also like the grate that came with it that fits in the bottom. Makes hand washing items much easier as they aren't sitting in dirty water - just a small bonus! Overall very happy with this sink so far.
This sink arrived perfectly packaged and beautiful. It has 2 "dents" in the top edge of it but i was able to overlook those because i really loved the style of the sink. However, now that it is installed I am disappointed. The bottom is prone to rust, I am afraid to let anything sit in it for any length of time. And it scratches so easilly. We purchased a stainless sink because it was advertised as scratch resistant but this is definintely not. I spoke to an overstock rep who referred me to Kraus warranty customer service. The Kraus rep said that this is a very rare complaint and said I should try bar keeper's secret to help with the scratches. So now i need to spend even more money to maintain a sink I thought would be maintenance free. I took months to decide on what kind of sink to have, even debated against copper because of the maintenance and here I am stuck with maintaining my stainless steel sink. I will try the bar keeper's secret and see if that helps. Wish me luck. Overstock and Kraus so far, truly disappointing.
Searched many sites and compared many brands. This exceeds my expectations and it looks awesome. Putting it on my new kitchen! Can't wait to use it. Anyone looking, this size is perfect! The 36" that I originally looked at would have been too large.
I waited to write a review until after I had plenty of time to use it. I purchased this as I was redoing my kitchen. I had refinished the cabinets and was going to put in new granite countertops. I had to do some alterations of the counter as it is deeper than most counters but the tradeoff is well worth the time.
I purchased the 30 in. single basin sink and it works great with cleaning. I am able to lay my bar pan stoneware fully down in the sink and also I am able to soak my trays for the dehydrator. The single drain is nice as I have a garbage disposal hooked up to it and having just one drain cuts potential leak issues in Ĺ. The insulation that is put on the sink cuts the noise down greatly I have a low noise garbage disposal and on my old cheap sink it was quiet but on this sink it cuts the noise down even more. And you donít get the loud ting sound that you normally get from cheap stainless steel sinks. The farmhouse SS front makes a bold statement and looks very nice in any kitchen that has other SS appliances.
This is the first Kraus item I have ever purchased. It will not be the last as I have been very impressed with the workmanship and quality of it. I have recommended this item to several friends I know one purchased it and they also love it. When I have friends come over the sink is the first thing people notice when they enter my kitchen. At first people are kind of setback and not sure of it. Then when they use the sink and see how deep it is and what you can fit into it they are sold on it. I purchased this as a combo with the Kraus Commercial Pre-rinse Chrome Kitchen Faucet. Works great with this sink helps when rinsing out the sink.
We placed our cabinet order already asking for one that will accommodate a 30 inch apron front sink. After reading queries from others below I'm now concerned out sink will not fit. What standard size cabinet should we be ordering to hold this sink properly? Can you please email me the specs to install?bostonblonde75 on Feb 24, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

The link provided by overstock customer care is for a different sink - do not rely on this .pdf for dimensions of the farmhouse sink. I found the manufacturer Kraus does have all of their specs available on their website.mapper6421 on Apr 15, 2013
