This sink is great! The quality is super and it looks great! It doesn't have that tinny sound when doing the dishes and is very easy to keep clean. It comes packaged very securely in a bag, then styrofoam, then boxed. When redoing my kitchen got rid of garbage disposal so I love the drain cup to catch everything from the dish water.
After searching for a good value on a 16 gauge stainless undermount sink, I chose this one, because of positive comments. When it came, it looked beautiful, and appeared to be exactly what I needed. After the installation of the sink and granite counter tops, there was a strong chemical odor coming from the cabinet under the sink. After many weeks and questions to granite company and installers, I started searching comments about the sink, and learned the odor is from some coating on the sink (which is made in China) It has been a few years now and the odor is still there, but at least we don't smell it unless the cabinet door is open. I smells like a health hazard and if it weren't for the permanent nature of the counter tops I would have returned the sink! Don't buy this sink! Not sure if all Kraus sinks have this odor, but beware.
We purchased this sink after doing a a great deal of research. We recently installed it with our new grantie countertops. The sink appeared to be made well, and it looked nice, However, the bottom racks have plastic feet on them that have left permanent marks on the stainless steel we are unable to remove. Plastic should not damage stainless steel. The surface of the sink scratches very easily, and ours already has several surface scratces on it. Again, we have used no abrasive cleaners or materials. We had an inexpensive stainless steel sink from Home Depot that never scratched at all. We are sorry we paid the extra money, as it's not worth it.
I love the sink, the "legs" for the grate are another issue altogether. They hold water meaning that, if I don't lift and shake the grate every time I use the sink they start to discolor. However, the sink is deep and wide and very easy to clean. I'd buy it again.
I have recently purchased several products from this manufacturer (Kraus) and am extremely happy with all of them! This sink fits in the same category, extremely happy. There is something about the finish on their sink that looks and feels more expensive. The sound deadening material is great. So if this sink size and 50/50 layout works for you, add it to your cart and proceed to check out, install and enjoy!
I purchased this sink about two years ago and I have loved it since it was installed. The grates in each side keep things from sitting directly in the sink and help to prevent staining. The strainer in the drain is fantastic and keeps food from being rinsed down the sink and causing clogs. This is a great value.
I completed a remodel of my kitchen that was only 9 years old and looked at literally hundreds of sinks before choosing this one. I was not disappointed. The look and quality are superior and it is the perfect look I wanted in my new kitchen.
Just as all the views have stated, it comes packaged very well from the manufacture. We are doing a kitchen remodel and it looks beautiful with all the other stainless steel we have in the kitchen. It has nice deep bowls to accommodate the largest items. The racks that come with the sink are even very heavy....I would diffidently buy this again and recommend it to anyone!!! The price might be a little higher than the big box stores BUT the quality is 4times better!!! We have black granite counter tops and this is over the top!!!
