Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Granny My new kitchen sink
I love my new sink! Prior to this sink, I had a 30/70 size sink, and I could not fit anything into it. Frying pans and oven pans had to be turned around to wash. This sink I can fit everything into it. I can put a dish drainer on one side and wash things on the other side. I can rinse dishes off right into the garbage disposal and put them to one side to put into the dishwasher. When I run the garbage disposal, there is no vibration and it is very quiet. My old sink used to vibrate . The new sink is very nice looking and I am extremely pleased with it. It is a very good buy as the competitors sink was double the price . The plumber had no problems installing the sink and he seemed to think it was a good product. I would highly recommend the Houzer premiere gourmet series drop-in kitchen sink. The new kitchen sink that I really love!

Removed a double bowl kitchen sink and replaced with a single bowl. Decided to replace the faucet at the same time. Purchased MOENBanbury 2-Handle Kitchen Faucet in Spot Resist Stainless for the replacement. Installation went well with no issues. The sink replacement was HOUZERPremiere Gourmet Series Drop-in Stainless Steel 33 in. 4-Hole Single Bowl Kitchen Sink. Which was a hard decision as we wanted to make sure the replacement was 18 ga stainless. Reviews as read made this a difficult decision. As after my installation the negative reviews in my opinion were distracting. Very pleased with the entire project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by All4Him Never want divided bowls again!
This sink is great. I went from a standard double bowl, 6" deep sink to this wonderful single bowl 9" deep sink. The sink fit right into the existing hold in our counter. I haven't been able to upgrade countertops so we still have laminate...but the sink fit just right and goes great with the Hanover Pull Down faucet we also ordered. The stainless looks great, the bowl is huge, and the drain is great. The stopper keeps water in the sink, and drains fast when I pull it out. I am SO pleased with this sink and the faucet we purchased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WPBDIYGuy Good Big Sink. Wrong clamps.
Sink is BIG and holds a lot of dishes plus makes it easier to wash big items. However, when I tried to install the sink I discovered that the mounting brackets that came in the box were for a sink with an "I" frame connector underneath. This sink, at least the one I received, had a "U" channel connector underneath the sink. The brackets are NOT interchangeable. I had already removed the old kitchen sink and unhooked all of the plumbing and took out the garbage disposal when I realized this. I had to make another trip to the hardware store to get the clamps. After I got the correct brackets it was a breeze and now that the sink is in, it looks great and it's HUGE! My wife and I love it. Just a side note, there seem to be a few spots on the bottom of the sink bowl, in the actual bowl, in the middle that look like rust that appeared the same day as the install as soon as they got wet. More have appeared since. I was able to wipe them off with another cleaning product but they came back. Time will tell how it holds up but it's good for now! That's my review. I hope it helps someone. Overall, this is a good BIG sink for the money and looks pretty nice too.

This sink is huge! We updated our double sink to this double sink and it is awesome. I no longer have a hard time with pots and pans. It does have scratches in the bottom already, I didn't buy a mat for it, but it is stainless steel, I expected to get scratches.

So nice to have a large and deep ( 9 inch ) single bowl sink to work in. Replaced a 29 year old 22 gauge double bowl shallow ( 6 inch) Dayton contractor grade unit. This Houzer is 18 gauge, much more substantial, heavier, quieter. Fits the original "standard" 33x22 cutout perfectly. 4 hole design allowed us to custom fit the faucet off center increasing needed sink top space owing to a close backsplash.
Early issue with the rubber silencing pad was swiftly and professionally resolved by Houzer. Great product and responsive customer service make this the best choice we've ever made for our kitchen.

Heavier guage and perfect size. Replacement for smaller sink that fits well in a standard sink cabinet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Caelstrom Looks Nice, But Not the Best Quality
This sink looks great, but has some serious quality flaws. Four days after installation the sink developed small rust spots in areas where it was machined during manufacturing (inside the lip and around the outer edge). These areas of rust were easily treated and removed with a baking soda & vinegar paste, but in my opinion it is completely unacceptable for a stainless steel sink to show rust in such a short amount of time. The sink basin also shows scratches really easily. This is completely cosmetic, but still aggravating for a a brand new sink. In addition, the adhesive used to mount the sound reduction pads to the bottom and sides of the sink basin is not adequate. You will need to add a more robust adhesive to these pads or they will eventually peel off.
We replaced a 20+ year old stainless steel sink with this one because we wanted a single bowl instead of a double. Our old sink never rusted or scratched and, with a family of six, it took some abuse. We bought stainless steel again looking for the same durability, and even researched different types of stainless steel looking for the best durability (300 series and 18 gauge). I was highly disappointed with the quality of this sink. I guess they just don't make anything like they used to.
I would have returned this sink but we had already thrown out all the packaging, and I did not want to have to uninstall and reinstall all the plumbing again (faucet, disposal, soap dispenser, sink-mounted disposal switch, etc.). Since the rust issue is relatively easy to deal with, I will make due with this sink until I can afford something much higher quality, and then replace it.
