Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stormy Love this big wonderful sink.
The sink was easy to install and adding in the filter system was a piece of cake. Love having a huge sink that is a dream to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Markbou Great purchase!
I had to widen my sink opening about an inch. To bad there's no way to lock down the adjustable arms on the upper sink basket. To help I use plastic zip ties to restrain the easy movement . No other problems. I had no problem with the tight rotation of the faucet, like some people said in reviews.

Where to begin? I mean wow.... it's been 4 hours in and I am still not done. Frustrated like you can't believe, But not done.
So The good, it looks killer great. It's a beautiful looking sink. I bought a really nice commercial style pull down faucet to go with it 2 nicer soap dispensers and a brand new stainless steel curved top water faucet for my reverse osmosis water filter. The combination looks incredible.
The bad. Wow, I mean WOW! what a pain! Mine was tweaked just slightly (crooked) and would not sit flat. So I laid an aluminum scaffolding plank across it and piled 200 lbs worth of weights on top and it still would not completely flatten out!
Fine, it has some gaps, I can deal with that (a little clear silicone). But the brackets, Unbelievably bad. Installing a new sink should not be this difficult! What Home Depot should have done is give you some heavy duty lag bolts that you slide into the track and then a heavy aluminum bracket that you hold in place with those lock nuts that won't come loose. That way all you would need is a deep well socket with an extension and bada-bing your done! But noooooo! What they give you is a very poorly made super thin black metal bracket with a thin screw that has a very aggressive thread similar to screws used for particleboard (which you know are going to rust in a few years).
The problem is that you must use a flat head screwdriver to tighten (NOT the head because remember you installed that into the sink's track) but the opposite end of the screw (yes the thin end that is small and impossible to hold while you are under the sink).
Once again it's THIN. so when you try to tighten it the ends break off, making it impossible for you to tighten any more. However most of the time you won't be able to apply any pressure to that screw because getting that small very flexible mounting clamp to stay in place in near impossible! BUT IF AND I MEAN IF... .you manage to A. hold the bracket in place and B. screw it down without it tilting or popping off and that bracket actually manages to bite into wood and not slip off IF you can pull all that off it still doesn't matter because you will not be able to apply enough pressure to flatten out the sink and get a nice clean seal.
I can not recommend this sink. In fact I will NEVER EVER EVER buy another Home Depot private label product again!. (Yes exclamation point and a PERIOD!)
I could overlook the crummy installation brackets, I really could but the fact that the sink is not flat and other reviewers have also mentioned it is a real problem is troubling at best. Secondly the fact that you can't apply enough pressure to the supplied hardware to make it flat is ridiculous.
Spend $100 more, get a name brand. This is not the sink you are looking for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sam A very cost effective upgrade.
The sink is well made with a beautiful bright finish. Its shape maximizes space. My wife thinks the included racks are very helpful. We didn't use the included low end faucet, but opted for a higher end one. A couple of months later, my wife and I are still very pleased with the look and usability of this sink.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tennman great sink very happy with my purchase!
This is a great kit for the money!and the kit is literally idiot proof. Sink comes with a template for cutting out your hole. The drain basket is also compatible for a disposal. It comes with a soap dispenser and a great faucet with a pull out spray head that has 2 settings that are push button. It also somes with 1 heavy wire basket thats great for rinsing vegetables and another heavy wire base that sits over the drain. If you do any canning you will love this sink. Its also big enough to sit those big pans in and let soak if need be. Im extremely pleased with this sink!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey What you must know....
Ok, I will tell you this right from the start....if you're buying this sink as a combo kit with the faucet included, then heed the warning of so many others and forget the faucet. The faucet is admittedly junk. I didn't even install mine as a matter of fact because I had one basically identical to this beforehand and hated hated hated it. So that is the only reason I did not give the Quality rating 5 stars. The Value however is still excellent in comparison.
So, with that up front, if you're looking for a top-mount stainless steel SINK, then I HIGHLY recommend this one. I've owned stainless steel sinks and most recently a high-end deep, single-basin farm-type copper sink. This purchase is the absolute best value of similar design that you will find. Here's why:
I looked extensively at Lowe's, Home Depot, Craigslist, Ebay, and other specialty retailers, both locally and online. In my opinion, this sink by Glacier Bay is the best value out there for this style. Just comparing the steel itself, it claims 18 gauge. Even if that was misleading in some way, it is still of thicker quality than other big names I saw. Moen for instance (I believe it was Moen or Standard American) has a same-size single basin sink, but was actually 20 and 22 gauge. The 22 gauge, while I wouldn't have really paid much attention to it up front, is quite thin and I'm certain would be prone to warping or bending with heavy dishes full of water. I felt and tested the thinner sinks and feel that it would be a mistake. And if you read up on some of the reviews, yes...it appears that that's the case. Most notably, those thinner sinks are loud. So with this 18 gauge, thus far I feel it's as sturdy as the sink that it replaced, which was an older stainless steel sink from 35 years ago when steel was steel, not flimsy tinfoil.
There were notes about staining or rust with this sink. I assure you, this is stainless steel. There is ZERO signs of rust and I don't expect there will be. Rust comes as a result of certain metals, eg cast iron skillet, oxidizing from contact with water over time. This will assuredly transfer to your sink if left in there with water contact. My countertops are sadly laminate but have held up I'm guessing for the duration of the house, which is about 35 years. Here I come in and stain it within the first month with a wet cast iron skillet. Point is, it's inaccurate to say that this sink rusts. Unless there was some batch of production that was faulty, much like the warped reports of some of these sinks, then that would be an exception. But this is a nice stainless steel that I'm confident is of very good quality.
Now being that the faucet included is junk, I fortunately had a much better extended nozzle faucet I brought with me from the other house. Even if the faucet included was decent, I would have replaced it because it sits much lower to the sink, which makes for running water over vegetables or cleaning larger dishes a nuisance. So, I would highly recommend a tall faucet. They can be had at the hardware stores or go check Ikea if you have one close by. It's well worth the investment to get a GOOD ONE, not some junk that LOOKS GOOD. It'll likely be the price of this sink so keep that in consideration if money is a factor.
Regarding the faucet, mine is a single hole design. I believe it came with a three-hole cover, but I lost it I guess from the other house. No problem though, I actually am very glad I didn't have the cover. As you can see from some of the customer pics, the included faucet or any cover for that matter is prone to shift and spin if not secured super tight. In addition, there is much more areas for water to seep in if not properly silicone. So, I recommend doing as I did....buy the single hole mount faucet and then use two SCREW-TYPE stainless steel dummy caps to fill the gap, making sure to add silicone before screwing down all the way. Do not use the snap-in type caps/plugs. If one of the prongs bends or it doesn't seat all the way, you run the risk of it allowing water in.
As for mounting of the sink, it was very easy. I did as the instructions recommended which was to install the faucet before mounting. This makes for tightening the fastener easier and assuring it's tightened securely. Then, I loaded up on good quality clear silicone on the counter top where the edges will meet. I did NOT put it on the underside of the sink because the metal is beveled such that if there's a thin bead of silicone, it may not even make contact with the countertop. So to assure that it's proper sealed all the way around, glop the silicone on the countertop. I did still use the adhesive weather seal gasket included with the sink too.
When securing the sink, do not wait too long to wipe the excess silicone away. It will dry and make cleanup much more difficult. But, it's a good idea to have handy a silicone adhesive cleaner to wipe up any residual silicone that you may not even notice until you tighten the sink all the way down or you look at the sink and countertop at a certain angle. I use Krud Kutter (I think that was the name) and it seemed to do well, and was environmentally safe for those that care.
Last thing I'll mention....I never thought I'd need the two wire grates that's included with the sink. But I will assure you, they are a great addition. I leave the bottom grate in all the time as it not only leaves the larger pans up off the bottom so water can drain, but the grate also has a center hole that allows me to lift off the drain cover if I need to empty the sink of standing water. With heavy pans resting on the bottom, this makes it a lot more difficult and messy.
I'm uploading a pic of my sink setup to show you how I mounted the single-hole faucet, two dummy caps, and one soap dispenser.
This sink has been one of those purchases I'm very thankful for thus it was worth me to spend the time to give my opinion and advice on here because I hope you can appreciate it the same.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheBaker Terrific Value!!
I needed a new sink for the kitchen, but wanted to go "cheap" because really, the kitchen needs to be remodelled and I didn't want to buy an expensive sink for a "tear down" kitchen. I also wanted a single basin sink because I never fill up one side with water, so why have two basins? After a lot of research I decided to take a chance on this model, even though the review were "average." I was also really concerned about the quality of the faucet, since so many reviewers had issue with it.
Well, I'm here to say that this sink is a GREAT VALUE. For $200 you get a spacious sink with faucet. I thought the overall quality of the sink AND the faucet were very good. And I was lucky enough that the sink fit in the existing counter-top cut-out!! In less than seven hours, I removed the old sink & garbage disposal, painted the inside of the cabinet, installed the sink and a water filtration system (instead of the soap pump) and started washing dishes!
I don't know how the sink will hold up over time, but in a world where you "get what you pay for," I think you get a lot from this small investment.
