This sink looked promising and is large and beautiful upon installation. Within 2 weeks of use, it began to rust. I have not used any abrasive cleaners or any scouring pads. Also, if you don't immediately put some kind of cushion, rubber pad or other protective device on the bottom, the bottom becomes scratched with little effort. The new granite countertop was measured and cut to size and it is now undermounted. I have no way of replacing it without added expense. I do not recommend this product. I should have spent more and gotten better.
