This sink was the perfect size for our kitchen reno. Our installer was impressed with the quality of the sink and the fact that it came in a bag (much like expensive shoes and handbags!) The hookup to the drain was pretty easy for my husband and the added grid that comes with it is a bonus. It looks great, but it's not very easy to maintain. Sure after cleaning it with Ajax it sparkles like new, but who is going to scrub the sink after each time you use it? Because it is so deep, water splashes from the faucet go pretty high up the sides of the sink and once dried they sort of stain. The sides always look dirty, even if I take a sponge with soap and water and wipe the sides of it down. My parents have a Franke sink, and after seeing the sides of their sink not stained with dried water droplets after each use, I wish I had known that about this sink.
I just installed this sink in my new kitchen...I am blown away by it's appearance, quality and weight! This blows away sinks I have purchased in the past from Franke. I would recommend this sink to everyone I know.
I wanted a Franke sink grate but didn't want to pay the price and someone recommended the Kraus grate instead. Am thrilled that I purchased this grate to use in my sink. It fits well and looks great - thanks.
