We replaced our kitchen countertop and needed to purchase a new double basin sink. This is of excellent quality. . 18 gauge with sound-deadening feature so that when you throw silverware into the sink it doesn't make that awful sound (metal against metal). Love the fact that the basins are of equal size and the drain holes are dead center (so many now are not). This has the look of high quality and durability and has a nice finish to it. Plus the price was way better than I could find in my local area. Highly recommend.
