I purchased this sink for a complete kitchen reno. It's one of my favorite things about the new kitchen. The sink is deep and wide enough to hold big pots and cookie sheets without sticking up above the sink. I can easily submerge large items and clean them with ease without splashing dishwater all over the kitchen. I had seen some high end sinks that cost thousands of dollars and couldn't bring myself to spend that kind of money. This sink was a great compromise. I've been using it for over a year now and it has really held up. One helpful tip from our installer was to put some cushioning underneath the bottom of the sink to minimize pinging sounds from the stainless steel. It has been good with the sound as well as provided extra support for the bottom of the sink.
