Customer Questions & Answers

Memoirs Pedestal Sink Cracking

I have this sink and the cracking is really bad especially for such an expensive sink. There are SO MANY people complaining about this. Is Kohler aware of this? If you're looking to buy this sink, buy something else.
Asked by: Foobarb
what a poorly built sink, as a contractor I have installed many of these sinks in customers homes over the years, what grief I have taken over these sinks , probably 75% of them have cracked since 2004 , Kohler will not make good on them, also Kohler toilets are the only toilets that are cracked right out of the box, please stay away from this company, bad bad news

what kind of toilet goes well with this pedestal sink? which one is in the photo on this page? thank you

Asked by: jason
Memoirs series has a toilet that matches the sink. We have both, and they look good together. We've had no problems with the toilet, but lots of problems with the sink -- see my negative sink review.

is there a Memoir sink that when assembled is less than 18 inches from front to back?

Asked by: Laura
Laura, they make a large and a small. My small (K-2238) is 24" wide X 19 1/2" deep (front to wall). (Note* I am not impressed with how the glaze has cracked and stained. Looks like an old tea pot)

Memoirs Classic Ceramic Pedestal Combo Bathroom Sink in White with Overflow Drain is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful pedestal sink The sink and stand was delivered in great condition. Packaging was above expectations. I tried buying this special order from a local plumbing store but that was a disaster. made it so simple. Installation went well. Time will tell if I start seeing hairline cracks like other people have reported. I believe running very hot water then cold water will cause cracking. So using common sense is important. Many people think the cracks add character to the sink. The small cracks in no way causes any problems.

It accented the remodeled bathroom perfectly. We also bought the Memoirs toilet as a set and like I said before it turned out to be everything we were hoping for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T BUY THIS SINK I bought two Memoirs pedestal sinks about seven years ago and both have many hairline cracks near the drain. I called Kohler and was told that they don't have a problem with this product, and that there is only a one year warranty with it. After looking at the reviews on the Home Depot website, I see where other people have had the same problem. At the price I paid, I do not recommend anyone purchase this sink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really Disappointed with this Kohler product Looked great for three years, then the glaze started to craze. The basin is full of hairline cracks. I called the Kohler customer service with no help at all. We are a family of two, light use. A neighbor purchased the "same" Kohler pedestal sink at a national plumbing supply house and I purchased mine at Home Depot. The savings at Home Depot was substantial from what my neighbor paid. My neighbors sink still looks like new, mine, not so much. Perhaps Kohler makes two lines of the same style sink to allow the big box stores to discount heavily. So once again, buyer beware... you get what you pay for. On a side note, I have a 1905 original american standard pedestal sink in our house, and it looks better than the Kohler installed in 2005. I'll buy another Kohler faucet, but never again a Kohler fixture.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hairline cracks I have an old house and this sink fit the style. The sink began to develop two or three cracks behind the drain and leading up to the overflow holes within 2-3 years of being installed in 2004. Within the past year (nine years later) it's now up to a dozen hairline cracks. I suspect it has to do with the shape of the basin, which has a D-shaped profile instead of either a consistently oval or consistently squared-off shape. All the cracks in the basin run front-to-back along the one edge that forms a sharp right angle nearest the back (the straight side of the "D"), closest to the faucet handles. I expect the three gradually rounded sides of the basin distribute expansion and contraction of the porcelain from hot water better than the right angle along the flat side of the "D." So probably an engineering fail on Kohler's part that may have nothing to do with the quality of the materials used. I installed a Jacuzzi sink in 2006 where the basin has a consistently symmetrical oval basin and it has none of these cracks. I will avoid any sinks with a basin that has a D-shape (or any other shape that's not symmetrical) in the future. I'm not down on Kohler in general. I have Kohler faucets on all three sinks in my home. The Fairfax faucet on this Memoirs sink and Coralais in the kitchen which receive the most use both had to have valves replaced within 6-8 years, however I'm told by local plumbing supply that's unfortunately typical with the heavy calcium and deposits in the water here, using any newer faucet valves manufactured in the last 10-15 years. Plus for Kohler: my Kohler faucets can be fixed by replacing parts, unlike my parents' experience with an equally expensive Moen pullout kitchen faucet that had to be totally replaced after just 6-8 years just because some valve failed. Planned obsolescence on Moen's part. Kohler also replaced the hose on my Coralais pull-out faucet with an improved version of the hose under the limited lifetime warranty, six years after I bought the sink. That kind of service is part of what you're paying for. So I definitely wouldn't steer you away from Kohler in general, just definitely recommend you don't buy sinks from ANY manufacturer that don't have a symmetrical shape.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Now looks like an antique Tea Pot A few years into service and it now looks like an old tea pot. The glaze has apparently cracked / stained and has the look of a china vase from the ming dynasty.... Ming DOES NOT fit my design criteria in this wash room. Ugh!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, lots of room Have small bathrooms, bought this instead of another vanity to give the feeling of increased space on bottom. Was very concerned that users would have enough room to put things like toothpaste, shaving cream, etc so I bought this based on picture as I saw wide rims. Sure enough, stylish and all, but more importantly, nice wide edges for user, nice wide area around faucet. Also liked the color of the white, richer somehow, maybe a tiny bit pearlier, I guess that's Kohler quality,
