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.

Same here. They just said you dropped something in it. END OF STORY...Couldn't believe it. I thought Kohler was a good company, but I thought wrong. There were the tiniest hairline cracks in it when it was installed, and you could just barely see them. Now, it's quite bad. There are hairline cracks showing up now where the drain is under the faucet, but I guess Kohler will say I threw something at it. I Read More

I installed this sink about 10 years ago, and after about 4, or 5 years later, the glazing cracks started showing for no reason. It just looks ugly with yellow stain. I bought a Memoirs toilet and wanted to have a sink to match with it , but worrying to have cracking problem with this product. Recently I contacted Kohler about this issue, since SO MANY people have been complaining about this. All CS was saying is there is something dropped on the sink or over tightening faucet or drain. They just would not admit defect of product itself. Basically all customer's fault. Buy this product at your own risk. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. Homedepot.com 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. September 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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! June 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 25, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Be careful Wide spread is 8 inches which most faucets are if they are good quality. I was sent a 4 inch spread which required a 6 am drive to Home Depot in Santa Maria praying they had a top with 8 inches. They did!!! Be careful with online ordering. December 30, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap porcelain After about 3 years the porcelain began to wear off. It is now 8 years and the sink looks like it's 100 years old. Lots of cracks and discoloration. I called Kohler and they would do nothing. Do not buy! December 14, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK The over all Quality was good but the hole openings for the facets were much larger hence the facet didn't center and sit properly.. I was able to make an insert that made it work but shouldn't have had to do this. the instructions for mounting the sink to the wall did not have the proper dimensions and the instructions for driving the headless lag bolts were also wrong. The sheet instructions were for the this particular sink model so they were just wrong. Would have been easier to install Had I not had to make modifications and change the dimensions.
