This is my third stainless 16 gauge sink from Overstock and the oldest one is my daughter's and is 6 years old. I purchased one like hers when I redid my kitchen 2 years ago and the granite installers were very impressed with its weight. We just bought this one for my son's new kitchen. He looked at the sinks at the box stores and the company he's buying the cabinets from and he thought they were all tinny and wanted one like mine. The finish and weight is amazing. I also love the grate in the sink bottom. Didn't think I'd like it but love it! Bought the faucets from Overstock as well and are amazing quality as well.
