For any one that is interested in the manufacturers name,as it is not listed, it is Vigo. The actual sink is beautiful and rivals any offering by Blanco, Kohler, etc. It truly is worth the value and spares little to nothing in craftsmanship. My only complaint regarding the sink is the ability of it to get scratched; however after referencing other reviews regarding zero radius offerings from the aforementioned manufacturers I have found similar complaints about scratches. My wifes simple solution has been the use of a rack at the bottom of the sink. The sink comes well packaged and with all appropriate hardware for an under mount installation, with the exception of the drain. I chose to have it installed with a 1/4 inch reveal on all sides and the contact lip accommodates this well. It is insulated with what seems to be a sprayed rubber undercoating on the outside and also implements pads so that the sink is not tingy and reduces excess noise. Primarily the difference has been noticed in the operation of a 7 year old garbage disposal that has been abused and neglected by previous tenants living in the property. The sink is exceptionally deep and accommodates any two sized stock pots placed in it without the interference of using the faucet. A benefit not noticed until one utilizes the sink is the ability to place a multitude of items in it without worrying about splashing water as its depth contains it. Due to the walls of the sink being the same size of its opening, in addition to its zero radius design, you are able to fit large awkward items in it without effort. You can not comprehend the size of the sink unless you see it in person installed. It is so spacious that I have contemplated bathing our Beagle in it. If you are building an industrial, urban, modern or contemporary kitchen there is not other complement to your kitchen at this price point. I do not have any sort of buyers remorse regarding the sink other than not deciding on it sooner. Buy with confidence.
