Kraus Undermount Single Bowl Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink with Grid has been a hit at my house. This sink is 16 gauge T304 stainless steel, making it a higher grade than I thought I could afford. It has padding to reduce noise, and a condensation coating, so it met all my qulaity requirements. The box it arrived in was sturdy, and the contents beautifully packed; as a result, everything arrived in great shape. The price was significantly lower than what I found at big box stores or granite yards. The template was accurate. The grid and towel that came with the sink are high quality. The drain appeared to be good quality as well; I particularly liked the deep strainer basket with handle, that was part of the drain assembly, and was disappointed that I couldn't use that drain with a garbage disposer. With the sink having only one drain hole, and so many people owning garbage disposers, that particular drain is more of a marketing gimmick than anything. It would make sense for the manufacturer to offer the consumer a choice between that drain, or a quality garbage disposer friendly drain and stopper. Since the price for this sink, with grid, drain and towel, was significantly less than most comparable sinks alone, I felt the drain was not a major issue. This sink is 9" deep. It offers plenty of room for anything I need to do in the sink, and reduces splashes from the new pull-down faucet. The sink is easy to clean. While the squared corners on some sinks look very stylish, I preferred the rounded, easy to clean corners of this sink. What I find funny is every single guy who has seen our remodeled kitchen gravitates to the sink and enthuses over it. They like that they have room to move around and not bang anything. I must agree. Though I am small, and joked that I had to be careful not to lean over the sink too far or I might fall in, as I use it I love that I can wash and rinse large cutting boards and pans without the usual maneuvers you have to use when you have a double sink. I took a risk changing from a double sink to the single sink, but I do not regret it at all. If I ever have a need for two sinks I can use a dishpan. In summary, I find the quality, size and features of this sink are five stars. As a minor point, I would suggest the manufacturer provide the option of a drain that is garbage disposer compatible.
This sink was purchased fo me by a friend from OVERSToCK when I redid my kitchen counters. It is an awesome addition to my kitchen. In my opinion it is a farm sink for about a third of the usual price. As I am a farmer that is what it will be used for, anyway. This sink is very deep at 9 inches; it seems to be sound proofed. It has a lovely finish but the finish scratches easily. so if cosmetics is a concern takes some care with it. The sink is stunning in my kitchen and allows me to fill buckets and wash larger items with no fuss and no muss. I am delighted with this product, which comes with super highest quality drains, one of which is a capture strainer that is at least 4 inches deep and has a pull out handle. This drainer is amazingly useful; a marvelous concept beautiful implemented for multi=purpose ease and use. I wish I could give this baby six stars.
We ordered this and received the wrong Kraus sink by accident. The only difference is that the one we received first was 9 inches deep instead of 10. Overstock immediately offered expedited shipping of the correct model number ( 30 x 18 x 10 ) with no extra costs to us so that there would be no interference with our granite install (and a free shipping return label / door front pickup) The sink quality and care in shipping / handling is incredible. Kraus offers amazing quality with a price you can't even compare to 300 to 400 dollar sinks. Can't wait to see it installed because its beautiful heavy stainless steal (and yes I meant to spell steel STEAL!)
The sink is really great quality. We love the full size basin and the 9 1/2 inch depth. It's an Ariel, with 18 gauge steel, The drain is well made with the removable strainer basket (which has a handle) and a tight seal on the cover/plug. It's also really pretty. Just what we ordered.
