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!
Awesome, just what we wanted and with sink rack to protect surface it is easy to clean. 4 stars as there was a hairline fracture on front apron, no problem, Kraus actually replaced the sink quickly, another great experience with Overstock
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.
The sink is beautiful and durable. It was the cherry on top of my kitchen renovation. The specs included are for 3 different mounts since no kitchen is the same. My contractor had concerns with the sink sitting on Formica counter but it worked great! We used a oil based paint the paint the inside of the counter where the sink would sit. Just in case of water went through the seal. After the sink was set we sealed it with a clear, water resistant sealant. The sink has been installed for 3 months and I have not had a problem. The sink worked perfect on a 36in sink cabinet with no crazy cuts or support. The only thing removed was the top of the cabinet to make room for the apron front. We did the top mount, the sink pokes above the counter about an inch. Everyone that sees it loves it! I love using it!
This is a fantastic, large apron front sink. I ordered it in Nov. 2014 for our kitchen remodel and then ordered it again 6 months later for our new house and that kitchen remodel. It is pretty resistant to scratches and you can't beat the size and price.
