I bought this sink and a slightly larger Kraus sink to compare which would look best in my kitchen remodel project and I went with the Ticor. It is plenty big-it appears much larger than the 32 inch overmount Kohler cast iron sink it replaced. The Kraus would have been a least 2 inches wider and deeper- not good if you're over 6 feet tall- too far to reach down to do the dishes. After 2 months, it has a few scratches on the bottom but nothing that doesn't add to it's character. I liked the zero radius corners- the Kraus had a gentler half round feel to the bottom edges, but the sharp edge seemed a more modern look. The rim of the sink is about .70 in width- about 2/3 of the Kraus, but it's plenty large enough if you take your time when building the support. I didn't have any use for the sink basket that came with the unit- cheapo plastic but since I installed a new garbage disposal unit, I didn't use it anyway. Finally, I will give a tip of the hat to the Kraus packaging. The Kraus sink came in a cloth bag, good template and excellent info regarding care of the new sink. The Ticor came in a secure box and a half hearted template but for about 30 percent less than the Kraus, I was OK with it.
