The sink was delivered quickly. The packaging was more than adequate and there was not a mark on the sink. It is insulated underneath as well as the side walls. I chose this style because I like to be able to wash/soak large pans and you can't do that in most double sinks. I also like the rounded corners at the base of the sink, allowing for better cleaning. Those square farmhouse sinks are cool looking but those square corners are tough to keep clean. This was the least expensive of the sinks I was looking at on the "O" and I am very happy with my choice. I highly recommend it.
