We've had this sink for about 2 years now and haven't had any problems with rust stains. We really like it and the drain is so easy to clean.

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.

I installed this "stainless steel" sink it started to rust after a plastic cup was left in it overnight. Then I read the online manual and it says not to leave wet items including a sponge in the sink or it will rust. I have other brands of SS sinks that have never done this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KateMarie031 Love this sink
Due to all the negative reviews about hard installation and spotting and rust I almost didn't buy this. My garbage disposal broke a year ago and since I was getting a new sink I wasn't going to replace it until I found what I wanted. I looked for along time and when I saw this sink really loved it. The old one was a 25 inch porcelain with a big lip around it. I tolerated it from the day we installed it so now I'd had enough. I have a 32 inch cabinet. We had to cut the hole bigger but that was no problem. I bought the insinkerstor disposal and it attached perfectly. The whole job, sink, disposal and new faucet took two hours. My son-in-law did it and he is not a professional installer. I'm not sure why people are having problems with this sink spotting and rusting. Mine does not spot nor have I had any rust and I leave things sitting in my sink. After doing dishes I just wash it with my liquid detergent and dry the rim. This has been in since early April. I love this sink and I am very picky. Don't be afraid, buy it! You will love it!

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 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.
