Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sasparilla Very disappointed
Sink was defective. Cracked along front edge. Sink appeared to be more like fiber glass than granite. Purchased a cast iron from Krohler for very similar money. Very pleased! A friend who purchased the same sink had to return it too because it was cracked.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed Stained, cracked, chipped, doesn't drain properly.
This was installed in our home right before we purchased. Hate it! The base doesn't angle toward drain and we have food and liquid around the perimeter all the time. It's whitish, but the basin has stained a dirty brownish gray now. Bleach, ammonia, soda and vinegar - nothing helps. We have stains, chips, and even a crack appearing now. A metal rack left rust spots when it sat in the sink. They don't scrub out. I sent photos to the company and they were very kind, and sent a replacement. But now I'm thinking why would I put the same thing back in?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Macbaz Wish I could have a DO OVER!
I purchased the Grande in white about 2 years ago during a kitchen upgrade of countertop, backsplash, sink, faucet and undercabnet lighting. I had the sink undermounted to a quartz counter top that I love. Unfortunately I can't say the same for this sink.
After a year stains were alreay starting to occur. I'm fairly particular about cleaning and maintaining everything I own so I would scrub the sink regularly with Barkeepers Friend and occationally with bleach water, but the sink continued to stain. You can now see yellowing on the sides and the bottom up to where the water line usually is. There are fine hairline cracks around the drains that take on stains more readily than the rest of the sink. I can tell these areas are getting just a little darker all the time. I paid around $200 for the sink. I'd say you get what you pay for but thats the same thing I paid for the Kohler stainless steel sing I took out after 10 years of use and installed in my mother-in-laws kitchen. Which by the way still looks better than this sink. The worst part of this story . . . I'll most likely have to replace that piece of countertop to replace the sink.
I would like to point out that this white is s dull white, not a bright white. I'm fine with the original color just not the stained color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pahandytype A great sink
This was a great upgrade from our old acrylic sink. That did not hold up well and was showing it's age. We were looking for a 60/40 bowl arrangement and wanted something in color. The sink is an off white with attractive mica like flecks that catch the light. The left bowl is super deep and large. It took our largest platter during Thanksgiving clean up! The finish is very smooth and a simple wipe down keeps it looking good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skeetertintexas Beautiful addition to my kitchen
I just had this sink installed and it's gorgeous. I wanted the off-set (60/40) style and I almost bought a standard cast-iron but spotted this one.
It is ridiculously deep and that's a good thing! The white is actually more 'off-white' or bisque but that's what I wanted. The care of a composite sink is different than I'm used to (no abrasive cleansers) so that will take some getting used to but all in all, I LOVE my new sink!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by foocat Buyer Beware
Hopefully this review will save more than a few people some time. I know now that if i had read all the reviews on all of the sinks out there I would have made a better choice the first time. My original sink was acrylic with many scratches and some major chips, the seal rim had broken and water was getting below so it was time for a replacement. I liked the color of the composite sinks as opposed the stainless type so I opted for this sink. Directly after installation the sink started developing hairline cracks where the basket sits and around the corners. When the sink is manufactured they use a grinding or cutting wheel to level the surface that meets the counter, this causes two issues. 1. it chips the outside of the rim slightly 2. The cutting is not completely level. Although the top of the rim is not completely level and the top of you laminate counter may not be completely level, the sink rim simply cannot stand up to any pressure without developing cracks like acrylic or stainless can. One reviewer mentiond that a pan dropped in the sink and it cracked so badly that is was unusable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cenla Nice sink but a few issues
During a recent kitchen update we decided to replace our 25 year old stainless sink. This sink had all the features we wanted and was an excellent price. But, there are a few issues worth mentioning:
1. The bottom side of the rim of the sink is supposed to wide enough to allow for a bead of bedding sealer / adhesive for top mounting. The edge on our sink was barely 1/8" of inch wide, so it could not be mounted that way. A call to their customer service indicated that the lip should be ~1/2" wide, but due to inconsistences in manufacturing I will probably need to seal the sink by running a bead of silicone around the outside of the sink -- not an attractive option.
2. As noted in other reviews, the floor of each sink is completely flat or slightly graded away from the drains. This results in the sink(s) never draining completely. Both sides will retain a thin film of liquid that will leave behind stains or watermarks. A little scrubbing seems to remove the stains for now, but I expect that all that scrubbing will result in a scuffed surface that will become harder and harder to clean.
3. This last item isn't about the sink itself, rather how it is displayed in the store. In our local Home Depot the sink has a sticker over the 4th hole (used for a soap dispenser or hand sprayer) indicating that it is optional by removing a scored plug of material. This isn't the case. The 4th hole is manufactured into the sink and is not optional.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LauraN Decent product for a good price
We bought this sink as part of our complete kitchen renovation. Our countertops are madeira gold granite, so we wanted something light that wouldn't stand out and take away from the visual appeal of the countertops. This sink is not really white, more of an off-white with a very slight gray tint. I would have liked it a little more ivory in color, but that shade wasn't a choice. In any event, we really like how deep it is as well as wide. As I read in another review, the left side doesn't have quite the right downward angle to drain completely, so a little water always remains. But it's a minor nuisance rather than a big problem. I find the sink easy to clean with soft scrub every few days, though I notice the right side (where we put our garbage disposal) shows discoloration from food after a couple days. I have to give it a hard scrub to remove, but the sink has been very durable so far and withstands any tough scrubbing I do.
For the price, this was definitely a good buy. If you spend a lot on your countertops and cabinets and are looking for a reasonably priced option that still does the trick and looks decent, this is the perfect sink for you.
