Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by felix3k GREAT SINK
I had this sink installed in my home when we built it over 23 years ago. It is showing it's age so I am getting another just like it. My husband I really love this sink. Having one large deep section is so handy and functional, great for big pots of food or rinsing fruits and veggies without getting water every where. When my kids were babies I even bathe them in it, no bending over and a handy sprayer for rinsing or shampooing little heads. The smaller section is great for the disposal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AppreciativeCalifornian Love this sink!! (Great for washing veggies and a water saver for general clean-up)
Wow, we love this sink -- ours is the beautiful black finish!! The larger side is simply HUGE and easily holds our large refrigerator vegetable bin, for super easy cleaning. It is also great for roasting pans! The smaller side is perfectly perfect for washing veggies, or just filling with soapy water to do some quick cleaning. It is a water saver because you usually don't need a large sink full of soapy water. Yet this smaller side easily receives a medium sized sauce pan. If I had known how pleasant this makes kitchen clean-up and food prep, I would have wanted this years ago; it is so much easier for me to work with than the 50/50 style!!

"I had the same Lakefield sink installed when I built my home 20 years ago. Several years ago I had Silestone counters installed by Home Depot contractors and reused the original sink. Knowing that it is impossible for the homeowner to modify the cutout, I ordered a new Lakefield sink. After removing the old one and cleaning all the caulk away I expected any easy replacement. Well Kohler must have changed their mold for this sink. There were gussets cast on the four corners as the old one but they extended further and interfered with the install. I ended up grinding these gussets to clear the cutout. It's a nice sink but I never expected the extra work."

I bought this sink less than 6 months ago. The finish in the bottom of the large sink looks greasy and has no shine. It looks the same as my old Kohler black sink did which was 26 years old. I contacted Kohler and they said it was because of the mats used to prevent scratching...I don't think this is the problem. It looked this way from the very beginning and I just thought when the plumber installed it that it needed to be cleaned. I only use Fabuloso...no harsh chemicals. Kohler said that I needed to try cleaner or to use white wax on it. I probably should have gotten a different sink, but I loved the large bowl and the small bowl. Now I'm stuck with an inferior product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mimi19 Loved this sink for 23 years.
We put this sink in our home 23 years ago. Loved it. Just moved and ordered the same sink. The first one had a chip and cracks just above the faucet holes. Reordered. #2 arrived and when the countertop install tech went to put it in, it was discovered that it had a slight warp. Reordered. Waiting on #3. Surely this one will be okay. Wishing now that I had taken my son up on moving the old one to our new home! Kohler needs to check on their quality control department. At least Home Depot is trying to make it right.

We were remodeling our kitchen and bought this sink. I loved it. Unfortunately my husband's job was relocated and we had to move. We have been searching for this sink everywhere to put in our new kitchen.
We were going thru old papers and found the receipt with the sku number. I put the number in, and found it! I have looked on-line and never found it. Yippee!
We never had a problem with scratching but we are careful.

Several scratches all the way through the porcelain enamal to the cast iron were noticed after only two weeks. Seems like the coating is way too thin for normal everyday use (dishes, pans, etc.) We had an identical sink for the past 16+ years and it got stained and a few chips on the outside edges but never had any scratches all the way through to the cast iron.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Great purchase
MUCH cheaper than our local Kohler store. Great value. Very heavy duty sink...much heavier than I expected. Surprised by how quiet the garbage disposal sounds. Love the size. Small sink for rinsing veggies, large sink for soaking the big pans. It's great!
