We recently installed the Ticor Stainless Steel sink as part of our kitchen remodel, and are very pleased with the quality and beauty of the sink! The sink is quiet - it doesn't have that loud, hollow banging of un-insulated sinks or tubs when water is running. I love the tight radius corners - it offers a more modern look, without the pain of trying to get in the corners of a zero radius sink. I chose this sink over another similar one because of the centered drain hole. I think I liked the look of the other one slightly better, but our sink is mounted against a wall (aren't most?!) and we knew we'd have a heck of a time squeezing the disposal and plumbing in the space between the drain and wall. The sink arrived in perfect condition in a sturdy box and came with a grid for the bottom of the sink. We had the grid in for a couple days, but ended up taking it out. I like to clean and polish my sink, but I couldn't clean or get to the bottom without removing the rack each time. It was too much of a pain for me, and I am ok with the bottom getting scratched I guess. With a young, growing family, I figure scratches are inevitable! The rack was a nice extra, but I don't know that I needed it. Overall, I am happy with this sink and wouldn't hesitate to purchase it again!
