Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ken Great looking sink, but cracks easily.
Funny, my grandmother bought her house in 1932, when she passed in 1989 her house was sold..., and to this day the same ceramic sink that was in the bathroom when she bought it ,is still there today.
Me, I built a second bathroom in my house 4 years ago and I installed this Kohler. One week ago my girl friend pours a pot of boiling water down the sink and it cracks the sink. Kohler used to mean quality, but if hot water is going to crack porcelain, it means it is poor quality. To ad insult to injury I originally paid under $200 for the for the sink and pedestal. Now, the sink by itself is almost twice the price. My recommendation, don't buy this sink.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NYGirl I like the deep basin but china is easily breakable
I reason why I had to buy a replacement in the first place was a nail polish fell from my medicine cabinet and put a 5-6 inch diameter hole in the sink. I was shocked that a little nail polish bottle could do that damage but I even more shocked when I saw the sticker price. If something this "fragile" yet durable should have been a bit cheaper. The only reason why I replaced the basin instead of the whole sink is the other bathroom in the room has the same combo and it looks good matching.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by breaksba Stylish but breaks easily. expensive too
Our pedestal sink lasted about 15 yes but I still find it hard to believe the whole sink could crack by simply dropping a small bottle from the medicine cabinet into the sink. Its expensive to replace! We have two sinks side by side so I hate to change them. At least you can buy just the basin.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NativeCalGal Ease of purchase
None of the following is in any way Home Depot's fault: The porcelain is not strong, and if you drop a heavy object into the sink, it will break. This basin was a replacement for one into which I dropped a ceramic soap dispenser. Also, Kohler changed the position of the support bracket mounting holes! They are an inch wider apart than the previous, identical basin. Why would a manufacturer do that? Luckily, my plumber was able to install without tearing a hole in the wall.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Daviefl This Kohler Sink Cracks
Sorry to say, but I thought Kohler was quality. This sink was in my bath and yes it was several years old. One day I came home and the soap dispenser had fallen in the sink and knocked a hole in it. The soap dispenser is plastic. Kohler would not even offer a discount replacement. If it is over 1 year old you have to buy a new one. At $381 just for the replacement sink. Reading the other reviews, I am not alone. So I will replace the entire sink, I have no choice because my guess is that this will crack again.

Last one cracked, ordered replacement top to match existing sink base & toilet, was very expensive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by stayathomom Great basin, but arrived broken. This is a lovely, spacious sink though!
No complaints about speed of shipping. Box arrived undamaged. We've owned a Kohler Portrait pedestal sink for 17 years, have just re-done the bathroom, and want to keep the sink because it's so pretty; but the basin isn't looking so great after years of well water, so we were delighted that the sink is still being sold and that we could just replace the basin. I opened the box and discovered the basin has a big hole in it! Then I noticed a heavy steel bracket that was loose in the box with the basin and obviously was being tossed around in the box during normal handling and broke the basin. This was neither Home Depot's nor the shipper's fault. The pedestal with the loose, heavy piece was in a Kohler box, which I can only presume was packed by the Kohler Co. I am at a loss as to why they would pack it that way. That would mean that all of these sinks would arrive broken! I will return it to store and find out if it's even worth my time to order again. Don't know if this was an isolated incident, like maybe the Kohler packer was smoking dope on the job!!!
