I reviewed this earlier, but wanted to share info about installation. We used a 36 inch Ikea base cabinet for an apron sink, and had no issues other than cutting the area under the apron to fit. Also we thought we needed to add bracing or something more - it didn't seem supported. However, our countertop person said it is not necessary. Once the counter is installed, its not an issue.
I love this sink. It is beautiful. Be aware that the sides of the sink are equally wide from front to back. In other words, this 36 inch sink is 36 inches across for the entire depth. This caused some problems for installation. A 36-inch KraftMaid sink base cabinet would require the 33 or 34 inch model of this sink (I had to return mine for the smaller size). The apron front is also SO deep that it only just barely cleared the cabinet doors below. CHECK YOUR MEASUREMENTS! As far as the sink goes, it is of very high quality! The stainless is heavy gauge and the interior corners are nicely rounded for easy cleaning. There is a very slight curve or bow to the apron front, but it is so slight that you really have to look closely to see it. It looks flat. I do wish that the pitch on the interior of the sink was a bit more. It takes some effort to wash down food particles, but I guess that is more because of the large size than just the pitch. We paired this sink with the Vigo Pulldown Stainless faucet (Item#: 12185406) and are just so pleased! They look great together and the finishes match perfectly.
This sink is enormous! I think an adult could literally bathe in it. We just had it installed into our large kitchen island and it is fabulous. Beautiful, and such high quality. I've always wanted a large apron front farm sink, and this is the top of the line, biggest one I've ever seen. It looks like it could be in a commercial restaurant kitchen. I will never have a problem with a pot or pan that's too big to fit all the way down into this sink. Sink love!

The Krauss Stainless Steel Farmhouse Sink is a hands down winner in the kitchen! There is much to like. The sink arrived within a week packed in a wooden crate in styrofoam and encased in a cloth duffle to protect the finish from being scratched. The base of the sink is faceted and the pitch allows water to run to the center drain efficiently. The drain cup is a deep basket with a metal handle that lifts out and cleans easily. The sink is roomy and deep - I have placed a small dish rack in the sink and it saves counter space and conceals the dishes as they are drying. The best part about the sink is that it is priced $200 less than the one I had initially started to purchase! It was definitely the right choice for me. I am very pleased with this purchase, which by the way, was my first from Overstock. Way cool!
I love this sink, bought it almost 4 years ago and it is just so great. I just love this sink. About a year ago I got sick of using the sink grate that came with it, as it was always hard to keep that clean. This is a wonderful product!
we just got this sink for a kitchen remodeling. it is so beautiful big and definitely a focal point in my new kitchen. it had a little scratch but Over Stock offered to replace it, it was too late for me though as it was already installed. I would recommend this if you are remodeling. the price is the best. the drainer that comes with it has a plastic bottom which i am not too crazy about, I am not using it because we are installing a garbage disposal.
We are building a new house and ran across this sink while searching the internet. After talking with our builder we decided to order one. It is still in the box as it is not quite time for installation. Since I have not seen it installed or used it is hard to give an excellent rating. However, first impression looking it over are excellent. Also our cabinet guy looked at it to get measurements and he was very impressed with the sink. When I told him the price he couldn't believe we got this quality sink for that price. After the sink is installed and we are using it I am confident we will easily rate as excellent. In addition the order and delivery process was very simple and accurate. Sink was delivered exactly on the date promised. If you want a high quality, large, single bowl sink at a good price I think this is a great option.
I shopped all over and this was such a great deal all the way around! I can lay 3, 9x13 baking dishes long ways going across the bottom of the sink side by side. It's huge! With a family of 5 the sink fills up fast. Now I won't have to worry about the dishes overflowing. Super happy!!! I can't wait to move in to our house and use this beauty!
I absolutely love this sink! It only took a few days to arrive. My contractor had no trouble installing it. The quartz countertop representative said it was a good quality sink. It looks great in my kitchen and I love the apron style. There is no pan too large for this sink.
This sink is what I've been looking for. You can fit plenty of pots & pans in it. It cleans very easy & looks great. It has made a statement in my kitchen. Its a sink you don't find in every home & I won't tell my neighbors where I got it from either. I was able to give my puppy a bath in it without any problems. I've owned it for a couple of months now & I'm very pleased!

Overstock only gets 3.5 stars for shipping on this item, took them 7 days to deliver. Kraus gets 5 stars for this sink, it's so beautiful in our new renovated home! The finish is very nice, looks very elegant and modern, nice deep and wide sink, works well with our massive 90 degree contemporary faucet from Moen. Included items are a bonus~ I can imagine washing a lot of big items in this sink and not have splash problems!
