Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hank Excellent Sink at a Reasonable Price
The sink is mounted under a granite counter top. I didn't notice the perfect drain when I bought it but am glad that it has it. The drain looks much better than a standard one. However, it did confuse my plumber. I followed the directions and showed him how to attached the disposal. It mounted under the granite very well. It is well insulated and not noisy. The 18 gauge steel is plenty sturdy. Easy to clean corners. The single bowl makes it easier to wash big pots and pans.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alway Awesome, but a tight fit into a 30" cabinet
This is a great big sink for your smaller kitchen. We love the generous size of this sink, the perfect drain feature and slim rim edge. Elkay advertises this as the largest sink that will fit into a 30", and it sure is a tight fit, so measure carefully!
Elkay also designed this sink with a flange to attach Insinkerator disposers, but I had a Waste King disposer that uses a different flange for its EZ Mount system. Luckily, Waste King has an adapter (#3101) to make it work with Insinkerator flanges, so that worked out perfectly.
Overall, it's awesome to have a sink this size and quality in a smaller kitchen. I wish the sound-deadening undercoating was a little thicker, but the sink is not at all too loud. It is loud with the disposer on, but I think most stainless sinks are this way. Also, some of the undercoating had to be scraped off in order to the disposer mount to sit flush against the bottom of the drain, but that was an easy fix.
If you order this sink, make sure your local store has it in stock too because I ended returning my original one. It was missing parts and covered in dust, but the store's Customer Service helped me with the exchange.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sinky great sink, unusual hard to find size
I got this sink in late November and am still very pleased nearly three months later. So at least in the short term it is performing well. I had a 25 inch that was a couple inches shallower. This one is very deep and the extra two inches in width, which still fits in my existing base cabinet, makes a big difference in food prep and clean up. A 27" sink was nearly nonexistent in my internet searches, aside from this one. And the price is good
I had this professionally installed, so I can't comment on ease of installation, but the plumber did mention that it fit quite nicely with the garbage disposal (insinkerator).
As to complaints about the stainless steel: i have had no problems with rust. It seems to clean up well. I rinse or scrub it at clean up, depending on what it needs. I don't dry the interior of the sink, but I do dry off the edges, the faucet and just behind it where it meets the counter and the back splash
If you are looking for a sink slightly larger than standard, this is a safe bet.
Tip: open the sink in the store before takng it home, to make sure it doesn't have any damage from travel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JohnG34 Sink Ok, parts, instructions another story
Just went to install this sink.
1) The instructions that came with it are incomplete for the under mounting type of installation. Going to the web-site gets you a set of instructions that is newer, and complete. I should not have to go to the web-site for installation instructions.
2) THERE IS NO TEMPLATE IN THE BOX, OR ON THE BOX. Again, going to the web-site will get you an AutoCAD file, .dxf. How many people do you know have AutoCAD at home? MAKE A .PDF ELKAY!!!!!
3) There are no mounting clips included for the under mount installation. The instructions from the web-site list "mounting brackets (LKUMB8), not included" The sink comes with over mount brackets. For ~ $230, and it's and it's touted as a "Dual Mount", the brackets for BOTH types of mounts should be included.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gumbogrrl Beautiful but rust spot problem!
Was searching high and low for a larger sink that would fit a 30" cabinet. Very pleased to find this nice-looking dual mount sink & had installed undermount beneath nice granite countertops for kitchen remodel. Rust spots began to appear almost immediately and begin to bloom again as soon as they are removed even when sink dry and not in use. Such a shame because granite is cut for this odd size sink and there are no alternaitives. Will approach manufacturer but not sure what solution will address this without me incurring major expense.
