This sink is deep and the grate in it is perfect to keep your dishes or cleaning cloths or brushes off the bottom. Its perfect.Read More
This replaced a circa 1970 SS sink. We chose this sink mostly for its depth. We love this sink for its solid build, bottom grate, and strainer. The strainer is especially effective as it won't unintentionally stop the sink, drains quickly, and cleans easily. The Kraus touch - extraordinary packaging and including a hand towel - were nice but unnecessary. The product stands on its own.Read More
This sink was the perfect size for our kitchen reno. Our installer was impressed with the quality of the sink and the fact that it came in a bag (much like expensive shoes and handbags!) The hookup to the drain was pretty easy for my husband and the added grid that comes with it is a bonus. It looks great, but it's not very easy to maintain. Sure after cleaning it with Ajax it sparkles like new, but who is going to scrub the sink after each time you use it? Because it is so deep, water splashes from the faucet go pretty high up the sides of the sink and once dried they sort of stain. The sides always look dirty, even if I take a sponge with soap and water and wipe the sides of it down. My parents have a Franke sink, and after seeing the sides of their sink not stained with dried water droplets after each use, I wish I had known that about this sink.Read More
I did a tremendous amount of research before purchasing this sink. I specifically wanted 16 gauge because it is thicker and stronger than 18 gauge, and thus less likely to show dents, etc. I also wanted to purchase a sink from a manufacturer that had a solid reputation. This sink met all of my requirements. It looks fabulous installed undermount with my granite. The sink was shipped with a drawstring cover over it for protection against abrasions. It also came with the strainer assembly, protection grid insert, and a dish towel. Kraus knows what to do to achieve customer satisfaction. I couldn't be happier.Read More
Easy to install, looks great in the kitchen. The great workmanshipRead More
I was amazed to find that the sinks came packaged in styrofoam and reinforced cardboard. It was also individually wrapped in a cloth bag for protection. It had great quality grid for the sink bottom and drainer, along with a free hand towel. The sink was so thick that it was heavy and perfect for my new kitchem. Initially, I havent heard of Kraus but am so happy with the quality that I will give my search engine first dibs on Kraus in the future. **The return policy is great with Overstock. This is especially true since I was taken to the bank by *** for a return that cost me 75% of the purchase price of a previously purchased sink that I returned just because I didn't like their product. I will always use Overstock.com in the future.Read More
I love my new Kraus sink. Kraus truly makes an excellent product. The sink is deep and I love that dishes, pots, etc, are raised above the sink bottom by the grid that was included in our purchase…so to put it mildly, the grid is great!! This Kraus sink, plus the extras, were packaged so beautifully that my husband was quite amazed. We are now using the black bag as a laundry bag. Thanks Overstock and Kraus.Read More
Good kitchen sink. Top Quality. Well packaged. You will be happy with this purchaseRead More

You can't beat this packaged deal. I've seen the sink grids alone cost about $60.00. You get the sink, grid and drain, plus a nice plushy towel! Also purchased a larger Kraus sink two years ago and I'm extremely happy with that product too.Read More
