Pricey, but good. Minor customer service issue.

Looks great and it¿s very well-made. Both sides are nice and deep, and the bowls are large.Since the sink is very deep and square, it can be a challenge to get all the connections made, but our plumber didn¿t have too much trouble with our faucet, instant hot water and soap dispenser.I should have ordered this earlier in the remodel, because there some pre-planning in order to make it fit correctly. Due to the size, your plumber may need to adjust how the water and drain lines are run to your sink, especially since a disposal will hang lower than most sinks. The sink is so large that it was a tight fit in my standard size base cabinet, and will definitely limit the faucets you can choose. Since you¿re left with minimal distance to the back wall (about 2¿), it won¿t work well with a faucet whose handle rocks back to turn it on or set the temperature. However, we worked around this by simply twisting the faucet 45 degrees, which doesn¿t look too bad. Although the sink is deep, it still accommodated the large disposal we bought here on Overstock, with a few inches to spare at the bottom of the cabinet.Our contractor has told us that one client removed a similar design because it collected grease in the corners that was hard to clean. I can¿t imagine this being a real issue. Since the corners on this sink seem to be slightly rounded ¿ perhaps this has been taken into consideration in the design.The construction is very solid ¿ definitely doesn¿t ¿sound¿ cheap when you clank against it and doesn¿t vibrate when the disposal runs. The main bowl has a small Vigo in it ¿ centered horizontally in the main bowl about two inches below the rim. It was well-packaged for shipping.We had a bit of a customer service issue. Our sink shipped without the clips to attach it to the counter. I contacted Overstock the same day asking for a speedy resolution, but it¿s taken over a week with still no resolution. This would have held-up our remodeling project, but the countertop installer used his own to keep us on track.
