This stainless steel farm sink by Kingston arrived securely packaged and in perfect condition. It is heavy grade stainless with full underpadding. Please note when purchasing your kitchen cabinets that you will need to order a sink cabinet that will accomodate a farm sink. My husband, a contractor and master tilesetter, and I both recommend this product for its functionality and form. This quality and style of sink will retail at upwards of $1,000. Comparable to Kohler brand which can retail $2,700.
