I love this sink and definitely recommend it. It's stylish, pro-looking and just beautiful! The only reason why I took off a star is because of two minor drawbacks: 1. Hard to upkeep. Watermarks stain it very easily. I've had other stainless steel sinks in the past and those were not as hard to keep clean as this one is. 2. Ruvati doesn't make drains for garbage disposals. The drains that came with this sink are astonishing and it's a shame that I can only use one on one side, and then the regular, standard "insinkerator" on the garbage disposal side.
We purchased this Ruvati 16-gauge Stainless sink to replace our contractor grade kitchen sink. When it arrived, the sink came packaged with foam all around it and the sink was even in a nice soft cloth sack to protect it from scratches. After using the sink for close to a year now I can say it is worth the money. The small side is perfect for stacking up our dirty dishes, and the big side is great for washing and scrubbing large items; even our 12" skillets! The only downfall to this sink is not on part of Ruvati (from what we can tell). Overstock advertised a sink, two drains, and two grates to protect the bottom of the sink. The box contained everything but the grates. We contacted Overstock.com customer support and they said they didn't keep extra parts like that around. Since we didn't notice until after the sink was installed and the old one gone, we couldn't return the sink for a replacement. Since no grates were installed, the bottom of the sink has endured some superficial scratches, but nothing out of the ordinary for any Stainless Steel sink. I would absolutely recommend these sinks. Price:Quality is a no-brainer.
I just completed a remodel of my kitchen, replacing my old sink with this Ruvati 16-gauge Stainless Steel/ 33 inch Double Bowl kitchen sink. It looks STUNNING!! I get compliments every time someone see's my kitchen, they comment on the beautiful sink. It is high quality and looks fabulous!! I definitely give this a 5 star rating!
This thing is HUGE! 55lbs. Was something of a challenge to install, but I did it myself. The space from from to back was absolute minimum hence the scraped knuckles! Hire a plumber! I raised the sink dishwasher portion of the counter-top 6" as I'm tall and have a bad back. So, without doing this the plumbing wouldn't fit, and the bottom of the sink would be around my knees! then, the elevated dishwasher is much easier to load-unload. The only thing that I don't like is that hot water should be diluted before pouring into the sink, it will rapidly expand causing a POP that was as loud as a small explosion! All in all, Beautiful and functional, A 18.5lb turkey fit into the small side to thaw and was easily and completely covered with water. my 10lb Shih-tzu loves 'swimming' in the large side! It's so large--Triplets would fit! Absolutely love it.
Love this sink! Nice and deep, fits all my large pans. My contractor commented on the quality , said it was a great buy. Two minor drawbacks, it does get water spots and the sharp corners need a touch more attention but worth it for the overall look of the sink. Would buy it again.
We are very satisfied with our Ruvati sink! The quality is superb and the size of the sink is perfect. The larger sink side is great for cleaning my 12 inch cast iron skillet, and my cookie sheets and roasting pans sit flat on the bottom of the sink. The smaller side of the sink is still big enough to be very useful. The sink grates are a very nice feature. We were impressed with the packaging that surrounded our sink when it arrived - it would be nearly impossible for any damage to occur in transit. My husband had no problems with the installation. After three months of use we have found the upkeep to be easy and the shine is as bright as ever. We have received many compliments from our guests. I would recommend this purchase without any hesitation.
I am so pleased with my new ruvati sink, I talk to a kitchen shop person that was redoing his kitchen and he told me he was putting in ruvati in his kitchen. I knew when we open the packaging, that I had bought something elegant. My ruvati has been in use now for 4 months and I just am so pleased!
I haven't installed this sink yet. I'm waiting on new counter tops, but I have opened the box. It came shipped in a black bag encased in styrofoam and undamaged. The quality is excellent. Very heavy and industrial looking. I can't wait to have it installed
We've had this sink for a couple of weeks. I love everything about it. Large pots and baking dishes fit inside the larger sink and the sink racks keep the sink from scratching. If you don't like water spots, a quick wipe with a sponge will prevent/remove them. As others have mentioned, it is difficult to get the back clips on during installation. Other than that he didn't have any big problems. We just learned we are moving, but I already plan to put this sink in our new house if I don't like the one that's there.
There are so many great things to say about this sink. It fits in a standard double sink hole. The gauge of the stainless steel makes it very rsisitant to dents. There are grates for both sides that helps with both washing and drying. There are debris catchers for both drains. We highly recommend this sink if you are looking to upgrade any kitchen. It is a whole new level of stainless steel sink!
Used this to replace out a porcelain kitchen sink that had been beat up pretty bad. Now sink matches appliances in condo. Gauge of this is outstanding and very quiet with disposal. Further, Bar keepers friend is the thing to use. Minor pan marks come right out.
