This beautiful sink is sitting in its box. Until we decide on the material for the countertop, that's where it will stay. But it's clear that it will be a stunning addition to our kitchen, for a price that is 2 to 3 times less than a comparable sink from a company that spends a lot on advertising. YOU know their names. The sink stoppers are extremely good quality, and compare vary favorably to all the ones I've bought recently, to update bathrooms--heavier, better materials. The grids to protect the finish of the sink itself are easily worth 1/2 the cost of the entire package, based on customized sink protectors I've purchased for our existing sink. The soundproofing on the outside means that there will be none of the annoying noises one associates with a stainless steel sink. And, I hate to admit it, but my husband is right: the minimum radius design lets the sink look modern, while being easier to clean than the zero radius sinks other manufacturers are selling.
