I love the size of this sink. You can easily lay down a full size cookie sheet or baking pan in the bottom. It also makes cleaning pots and pans easier since I don't run those through the dishwasher. There is no way I would use any other sink. The granite guy asked why I went with this sink versus a 2 bowl, I said he's never used a single bowl sink then. They are so much nicer in my opinion. 2 notes though... Watch the height of the waste arm from the wall of the house...if it's too low, you won't be able to use a garbage disposal. I had to use a compact disposal, just barely fit. Also, when switching to a single bowl sink, it might drain slower. Install a Studor vent in the drain line to allow for faster draining. They are around $25 at your local home improvment store.
We shopped and shopped and saw numerous sinks this size at more than 2X the cost. This is a great sink and well worth the value. Compared to Kohler, Blanco, etc., hands down this sink is a winner. I'd absolutely recommend this sink to anyone who is remodeling an existing kitchen or building a new home.
This sink appears to be well made. I'm disappointed as the illustration showed the sink with the drain toward the rear of the sink(which is what I really wanted). The sink I received has the drain in the center. In spite of that, I will keep the sink, it's a good sink for the price. No brand names on the box, I cannot find any notation as to country of manufacture.
This sink came well packed, in good condition, and with a template for the countertop cutout. It is insulated, and I felt it was quieter than some of the other reviewers. Overall, a great value for the money (and my contractor said I could "scald a hog in it", it's so big)!
this is a gorgeous sink. i got this sink w a vigo faucet and it looks so good together. everyone is jealous of how big and deep this sink is. i can wash everything in here. a huge roaster - sure- just plop it in there. huge soup pot - whatever. and the feel of the sink is pretty substantial. i believe the 16 gauge is thicker but its also a lot more expensive so for me this 18 was perfect. if u get a cheap sink -you can drop a fork and u can feel how cheap and thin the metal is. this is a substantial sink. im very happy with it.
Purchased Vigo sink and faucet. Both arrived via UPS very well packaged and were easily installed by my contractor during a kitchen remodel. Great sink for the price - larger than any stock item in box store.

I found this sink on Overstock and took a leap in ordering it. I don't have it installed yet but it seems GREAT. I was replacing a large laundry wash tub sink and had done extensive research on undermount stainless sinks. I wanted to keep the feel and size of a laundry / washtub sink but didn't want to break the bank on price either. This was the perfect solution. It was almost as large and deep as my old sink and looks fantastic in the box. Can't wait to get it installed!
I purchased this sink for a condo we bought and are remodeling. We have not installed it yet because we are waiting for the granite. When I got the sink in the mail, it came quickly and was packaged nicely. No problems. It is a really big sink. I first I thought it was too big, but it is a 30" which is what I wanted. It just looks huge not installed. My contractor said it is a normal size for a sink. Very deep and well made. Can't beat the price either! I looked around and most were twice the price. I would definately recommend this product. And don't hestiate to order from Overstock. I am a frequent shopper with Overstock and never had a problem. I buy everything from them from clothes to kitchen sinks!
The sink was exactly as pictured. We called to insure the drain was offset as one of the previous reviews indicated they had received a different sink than pictured. We are happy with the quality and function of the sink. It cleans well and adds a nice touch to our new granite in the kitchen. We have a disposal connected to the sink and it is very quiet. The sink is insulated well.
Sink depth is actually 9" (not 10"), but any deeper would actually be too much for my needs. Sink is nice and large, and much better than the double bowl I had previously. The only slight downfall is that the sides of the sink have a slightly different appearance than the bottom. Not a big deal, and most people probably won't notice it unless they look closely. All in all, a great value when comparing price to the large home improvement stores.
This is likely a good sink for the price, but don't expect any frills. I was disappointed in the quality after reading the other rave reviews. It simply doesn't look or feel like a German-made, heavy-gauge sink (which, of course, it isn't). It arrived badly packed (with the box partially open) and came with NO accompanying literature or brand name information, although a template was included. I'm returning it today.
I had been wanting a deep single bowl sink for some time. When we decided to replace our kitchen countertops with Silestone, I decided to also replace the sink. I couldn't be happier. It is very deep and spacious and looks great with the new counters. I think I got a great sink for a very good price.
