The sink is a great size, fits every single pan I own! Also well-built with the sound padding below. For styling, I like the sharp corners, even if they are a little harder to clean than the curved radius corners, as it looks that much more 'crisp.'
My wife and I were looking for a solid and deep kitchen sink. This particular model fits the bill even though it is a little on the pricy side; but I guess you get what you pay for. I will follow up once it is installed and we get to use it, i.e. I will report on how loud it it when the water is running and/or the garbage disposal is on.
We purchased this sink for our kitchen remodel. It looked very impressive in the box and even better when it was installed. We really like the size and depth of the basin. If you are going to replace your kitchen sink I would recommend this one.

First the sink. It is gorgeous. My Wife and I just finished renovating our kitchen and this was the last piece to the puzzle. It is super deep and just looks amazing. We used butcher block counters and this is great because I didn't have to cut rounded off corners. it's completely square. Now for the warning. First, installation instructions are completely useless. Basically they give you bolts with a thread system that needs to be countersunk. No biggie, what size drill should I use??? Well your guess is as good as mine. The ones I had were either too big or too small. To small and you can hammer in the countersunk nuts, too big and they just fall out. I compromised, used a smaller bit and just twisted the drill a bit. Then hammered them in. Some were great, some were too small and I started to smash the plastic nut, and some were too big..... It would have been 100 times easier to just use wood screws to screw the clamps on. I ended up doing a combo of wood screws in the clamps and drilled holes around the edge of the sink as well and screwed them in there. That was the first issue. Luckily working with wood I had a few work arounds, if you're working with a hard surface I don't want to be you. Second issue, this sink is HUGE! It barely fit in the 36" sink base we had. The faucet is a little closer to the window sill than I would prefer but there was no choice. I ended up having to undo a few of the clamps and spin them sideways because they were sitting on the edge of the sink base causing the counter to not sit flush. Also, word to the wise, if you can, install any and all fixtures BEFORE installing the sink/counter because once it's in, working around it is a nightmare. 3rd and final issue. It's HUGE. Because this is a deep sink to start, plus an undermount I HIGHLY recommend you measure the distance from your drain to the floor and figure out if there is a difference from your current sink to this. My problem was the between the added depth of the sink, and the fact that it's undermounted, I lowered the overall drain about 4"s. Doesn't sound like much till I realized I couldn't reconnect my P trap to the wall anymore..... I had to remove the garbage disposal and buy a different lower profile strainer basket that the one that comes with the sink and got lucky and was able to connect it. Long story short, be aware if you're current sink is shallower and or an overmount you want to make sure your drain will work. Overall this is a great deal. I highly recommend it. Just be aware you may need to make some rather expensive plumbing alterations by using it.
I searched and searched for a sink that I loved at a great value. I'm redoing my kitchen and needed to find one asap! In doing my research, I found that this sink appeared to be the best value for what I wanted. I don't love purchasing big ticket items online because I am always afraid that I won't like it once I get to see it in person. This item, however, proved me wrong. My expectations were far exceeded. It's an absolutely beautiful sink, and everyone who see's it (including the installers) compliment me on it and ask how much I spent. When I tell them they are blown away. I'm super excited about this purchase.
It's not installed yet as I'm waiting on my new Quartz countertops but I opened the box to make sure nothing was damaged and OMG I LOVE the look of this sink! Who gets excited about a kitchen sink??? After today, I DO! I can't wait to see it in my remodeled kitchen. It looks so much bigger than my old sink and I worried it was too big, so I put it on top of the old sink and the dimensions are exactly the same. It's a couple of inches deeper than the old one but will fit perfectly as an under-mount sink. To go with the Ruvati sink, I also ordered the Ruvati Stainless Steel Commercial Style Kitchen Faucet and it looks classy as well. I will post photos and update my review after it's in and I use and abuse it for a couple of months. At this point I am so happy I decided on it.
I looked at a million different sinks within our price range and read reviews until I was exhausted... we finally came across this sink and found it to be the best of all value, quality and design. I like the modern look, looks much more expensive than it is. It was easy to install (we have a butcher block countertop) and I liked the drain/cage it comes with. It is a deep sink, so if you are looking for a smaller/shallow sink this is not for you. So far it's been easy to clean and we use the cage when washing pots to avoid dents, although we haven't had any dents even when we don't use the cage.. I would buy this product again and recommend it to make any kitchen look fancy!
Bought this sink while remodeling my kitchen. I was looking for a large stainless steel that was quiet. Now that it is installed I can say it definitely is quiet and the sound dampening does work! This sink is definitely a great deal for the quality and the price!
