We are so happy with this Kraus 30-inch undermount stainless steel sink. Bought it back in Nov 2010, but didn't get installed or used until Jan 2011, due to construction delays. It is beautiful -- our contractor and others involved in the project commented on it. While shopping around, we thought it might be too deep, mounted under 1.5 inches of granite countertop. But paired with a high-arc faucet (Kleo by Moen), the depth really contains all spash. Every pan and serving tray can fit in this sink! What a luxury! Near-zero degree radius corners lend that professional look without being hard to clean -- the pull-down spray nozzle flushes debris back to the drain without a problem. It is high-quality, low-gauge stainless steel at a reasonable price, for the size of the bowl. Also loved that the sink grid is included -- would have been an extra purchase otherwise. This sink has a rear-positioned drainage opening -- check to be sure there is enough clearance between it and the rear wall of the cabinet opening to accommodate the garbage disposal, if using one. The packaging was impressive, as other reviewers have mentioned. And for a first-time overstock.com buyer, we found this was a really easy and satisfying place to shop, even for so big-ticket an item.
Let me explain my 'Average' rating. I love this sink. It fits my needs perfectly and the steel bottom grid is a nice touch. However, the drain/strainer had a cheap plastic part that not only would not seal properly but would deteriorate over time. My plumber had to install a different drain/strainer, one that matched the quality of the sink. How disappointing it was to see that cheap part in this expensive sink. Would I buy this sink again. Yes, but I'd have purchase a separate drain/strainer.

I wanted a great big sink and I got one. I can soak cookie sheets, broiler pans and my turkey roaster and still have room left over. However, I was disappointed because the sink came with a stainless steel rack that was supposed to sit in the bottom of the sink to protect the sink surface from being scratched by sharp edges of pots and cutlery. The rack is made to the exact dimensions of the sink, but because this is an undermount sink the overhang of my soapstone counter top makes it impossible to get the rack into place. If you are using this as part of a kitchen remodel tell your countertop fabricator to to take this into consideration.

If you've never had a single basin sink, it's time to make the switch! I put one in my previous house and fell in love. My new house has a double basin. Switching to a single basin was my first order of business! You can fit large pots, including their handles, in the sink. you can fit entire cookie sheets flat across the bottom. My 70 year old parents converted to a single basin after staying with me and they would never go back to double basin. The only downfall to a double basin is wanting to dump things down the drain when you have a sink full of soapy water. You learn to make adjustments immediately because you'll love the large capacity. Nothing is too big to fit and wash in this sink! Kraus is a German name, but it's a Korean product. I was instantly leery of a Korean product, but this sink gets great reviews on several other sites. The true test comes after installation, which has not happened here yet. I will review again at that point. Amazon had loads of very high reviews on this specific sink. I paired it with an industrial faucet (American Standard 4332.350.075 Pekoe Semi-Professional Single Control Kitchen Faucet, Stainless Steel) and couldn't be happier with the quality and look of both.

Initially we ordered the 32" sink because that was the size of our old one, however the old sink had a partition (2 basins). When the 32" came it was HUGE and it's also 1" wider, which doesn't leave enough counterspace around it to install a faucet, etc. So we sent it back (very easy) and ordered a 30" sink. It arrived in 7 days, but was not an issue as we're still waiting for the granite. It appears of superior quality (16 grade) and it looks beautiful - I have no doubt that it would enhance our new kitchen - can't wait to see it installed! The single bowl seems to be a much better choice these days, as you can fit and soak ANY pan in it.
Don't think twice about buying this item. It's an awesome sink. love the more squared off corners. I have used a large single style sink for years, but they were the drop in style. love, love , love the under mount style. and the sink drain is great. comes with sink and has a basket with handle for removing garbage, and has a stopper to plug the drain. never seen any like this design. Nice strainer insert as well. This sink comes packaged in a kraus fabric sewn bag. Very, Very, Very nice. can't beet this and the price is great. Thanks Overstock.

I just had my new quartz countertops installed today with new sink and it exceeds my expectations! The owner of the company that installed my counters said this was one of the nicest, heaviest sinks he's ever seen and he sees many. He could not believe I got it for the price I did. Although I haven't used it yet - I can't wait to - almost makes me want to do dishes! Don't hesitate - this is a great, high quality sink that looks much more expensive!

The sink has not been installed as the cabinetry is about to go in but it was packed in a fantastic box, good fast shipping, no scratches or dings; the sink appears perfect and came with a template for my builder, the drain, rack and towel. The protective rack is open stock and I advise anyone to have two, in case they need a new one a few years down the road. I have a siminlar sink now and always use my rack; iI once (without a rack) sat a crock pot that was ceramic down in my sink and it left and unforgiving scratch so I always use a rack. This sink can be cleaned with mutiple stainless sprays but I have found a tiny bit of baking soda and a few sprays of vinegar shine it to perfection. I never leave coffee or staining liquids in the sink. This sink has the advantage of soaking lasagna pans, cake pans, roasting dishes since there is no divider; no slanting the cookie sheet and washing one end at a time. Overstock offers a great price and they are wonderful to work with. This sink is a tremendous value and would add to any kitchen; new or old.

This sink is large and appears to be very well made. Almost the same as a much more expensive one I considered. Don't know about the sound yet, as it will be installed next week. Will update, but so far this is a great buy and was delivered in a timely, well packed manner.

Looks great installed...the perfect compromise between my husband who wanted a square sink, and me who wanted one easy to clean. The slightly rounded corners sold me, along with the price being less than half everywhere else we looked for a sink of this shape and quality. LOVE THE BOTTOM GRID it came with! A garbage disposal fit just fine regardless of the rear-set drain and existing cabinetry. Would recommend!
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 finaly got our sink installed.everthing was as discribed and we are very satisfied with the delivery and the quality of the sinkthis was our first purchase on overstock and we just bought stools for our kitchen.this is our best referral
I redid my kitchen and searched everywhere for the perfect sink. This is the one!! It is nice and deep and is solid. It doesn't make a hollow sound when you place dishes in it. You owe it to yourself to purchase this sink. I absolutely love it!! My granite installer even admired it and told us this is the best sink he has ever seen. I love the rack that comes in the bottom. The free towel was a nice touch.
