We had already purchased a similar sink for major kitchen remodel when we saw this one. We ordered it, and compared the 2 side-by-side. They were virtually identical--the $380 model had a slightly nicer luster to it, but the Krauss had the sound proofing on the exterior. And the Krauss came with the wonderful grids. I had no idea how much I would enjoy having these! Even our contractor looked at the two and preferred the Krauss. After installation, we were delighted with how quiet it is, even with the garbage disposal running! I highly recommend this product (and save $$$).
