We love the appearance of this sink, as well as its depth and the deep-well drains. The only drawback is that the rubber feet on the protective grids in the bottom of the sink rub and have marred hte surface of the bottom of the sink.
Paired with my stainless steel sprayer and butcher block countertops - it is a wow piece. Keep the shine by oiling with mineral oil if it lightens or looks scummy in places.
My plumber just installed this sink yesterday after I purchased it myself. The sink is not too heavy as the other reviewer mentioned. We did not have any problems setting it into our existing opening. However there are two things to know when installing this sink, do not use regular plumbers putty as that may stain. (It is oily.) Either us non-staining putty or clear caulk. My plumber did not have clear caulk on the truck and used white. I wish I would have run to town and bought clear. There is now a fine film of a few streaks of white around my sink drain. Our drain is a mocha color too. By the way you have to purchase the drain and strainer separately which I think is ridiculous after the amount you spend for the sink. Other than that the installation was straight forward. The dark sink needs to be wiped dry after each use though to really look nice otherwise the water shows up a lot. That was not really an issue in our old light colored sink. So that is why I give it 4 stars instead of 5. I do not know yet about how it might stain etc. However in the care notes of the sink it says not to pour boiling water into it nor set a hot pan in it. One must run cool water at the same time you pour the boiling water in. That may be a bit of a pain to deal with each time. I have an oil rubbed bronze faucet to go with this sink and varied brown tile countertops and backsplash and I think the whole effect is gorgeous. PS. this sink is deeper than my old one and I love that.
love the depth of this sink. I also purchased the faucet shown in the picture. Very nice. be sure to use bees wax or butcher block oil on the granite sink it will shine for ever.
