i had orginally ordered a kraus 32" sink single bowl stainless steel sink from over stock which i loved but after i received it realized my plumbing would not accomodate a back drain sink. warning to those of you who want to buy a back drain sink. talk to a plumber first to see if there will be room for your plumbing and garbage disposal. i returned the kraus sink and ordered the ticor sink with a middle drain. Over stock was guick and efficiant in handling both the return and new purchase. i received both very quickly. i like the ticor sink as well but had my heart set on the kraus back drain. also i would suggest getting a bottom basin rack to avoid scratches. the kraus sink had the b ottom basin rack included. all in all we were very happy with the service and product.
I bought this sink as part of my remodel for my house. Other sinks that looked like this cost way more, and I was trying to do the remodel on a budget. I wanted to get the best sink I could for the best value and wanted it to be high gauge steel. My countertop guy who installed it really liked it and asked my boyfriend where I got it from. After living with the sink, there are a few things that you should know about it before you buy - it does scratch easily (but it's stainless steel so it will and you can always buff it out), and since this is a rectangle sink, it is more difficult to get things out of the corners (such as food and soap) so if this is something that would bug you, I'd recommend a sink with more curved edges. This sink is good if you have a garbage disposal, since the drain is in the middle, since it will make sure that you don't have the problem of the garbage disposal not fitting under the sink, but then be forewarned the garbage disposal is in the middle of the cabinet and you'll have to work around that issue. All in all I'm very happy with my purchase and had a great experience with overstock. the sink shipped right to my door within 5 days of purchase.

I wanted a very clean line sink and this is not it. The bevel is very large and distinct - not visible in photo or mentioned by other reviewers. It detracts from the modern, clean line. Also, I haven't even used it yet and it is scratched. Other reviewers mentioned receiving a cutting board which I did not. I chose this sink because of the additional parts like a cutting board and colander . I can't even purchase them from the manufacturer. Either spend more from another site and get the other parts or choose a different sink.

This sink exceeds my expectations in quality. It is just as it looks online, but better! It was installed about a week ago and I'm loving the function of a deep single bowl kitchen sink. The sink was delivered within 5 business days & packed well with no damage. My installers loved the included template, which made their jobs much easier. The additional accessory of a cutting board was missing, but it only took one online live-chat to receive the board at my front door also within 5 business days. I'm very please with my experience with Overstock.com for such an important purchase for my kitchen remodel and especially with the price for such a very high quality sink.
I bought this sink and a slightly larger Kraus sink to compare which would look best in my kitchen remodel project and I went with the Ticor. It is plenty big-it appears much larger than the 32 inch overmount Kohler cast iron sink it replaced. The Kraus would have been a least 2 inches wider and deeper- not good if you're over 6 feet tall- too far to reach down to do the dishes. After 2 months, it has a few scratches on the bottom but nothing that doesn't add to it's character. I liked the zero radius corners- the Kraus had a gentler half round feel to the bottom edges, but the sharp edge seemed a more modern look. The rim of the sink is about .70 in width- about 2/3 of the Kraus, but it's plenty large enough if you take your time when building the support. I didn't have any use for the sink basket that came with the unit- cheapo plastic but since I installed a new garbage disposal unit, I didn't use it anyway. Finally, I will give a tip of the hat to the Kraus packaging. The Kraus sink came in a cloth bag, good template and excellent info regarding care of the new sink. The Ticor came in a secure box and a half hearted template but for about 30 percent less than the Kraus, I was OK with it.
The sink was just installed yesterday. I have no idea how it will wear, but it is certainly beautiful and I love the sliding cutting board option which I use to hide my compost bucket. Price was less than I found for similar sinks, but I don't know if it is as well made since they were all only available by special order.
