What a beautifully, well made sink! When looking at comparable sinks, Kraus had them beat both in price and features. As a matter of fact, before purchasing the Kraus sink from Overstock, I purchased a name brand sink from one of the big box stores. Upon coming across the Kraus sink, specifications showed it was deeper and had a thicker gauge steel than the name brand. There was also more sound insulation padding than the name brand. The Kraus sink also included the sink protection grid and drain assembly which was not included in the other sink. Just the sink grid for the name brand sink would have cost me about $75! Needless to say the name brand sink was promptly returned upon purchasing the Kraus sink. The box and packaging used by the folks at Kraus is first rate. Short of a tank running over it, I cannot see it being damaged in shipping. What a great addition to our new kitchen!
The sink is beautiful. The only issue is that they have the interior measurement listed in the description as 21" so I bought a 20" sq. grid. I then discovered that the top of the sink interior measures 21" but the bottom was over an inch smaller...the sink tapers smaller to the bottom. I cannot find a grid to fit unless I use one much smaller.
We bought this sink for its generous size, for washing large pots and baking sheets in, and for washing large vetables and greens in. It's deep and wide. I also wanted a large sink to hold my drying dishes in on a rack. No more dish clutter on the counter top. I have been so happy with this sink for all those uses! I use a sprayer and / or a rag to move the food debris toward the drain regularly. I don't expect it to stay clean and unscratched on its owner. I was not involved in the installation of the sink so I can't comment on that. But this sink has served me very well for the last 2 months and I love it!
