Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GG Sleek Sink Love - Worth Pampering
We feel this sink was the perfect choice for our newly remodeled kitchen! It complements our sparkling white quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and overall fresh contemporary look. This sink is quite stylish and simply very pretty to look at, with a high-end appearance for a reasonable cost. As for function, the quality is evident from the minute you open the box, as other reviewers have said. It's relatively quiet even when using the spray function on the faucet; the extra depth is great for washing baking sheets and large pots; and the softly rounded inner corners are easy to clean (versus squared corners on some contemporary sinks).
One thing to be aware of if you are considering purchasing this sink is that the same feature that makes the sink so beautiful - the satin finish - also makes some pampering necessary to keep this finish looking its best. As another reviewer reported, scratches (and watermarks on the bottom) can appear, though they are tiny and barely noticeable. I love the sink so much that I am gladly invested in how best to care for it. No scouring of course, no harsh chemicals, always use the bottom grids (and be careful putting them in and taking them out), wash the sink down with dish soap and a soft sponge, dry with a soft cloth afterwards. The good news is: the stainless steel wipes (I use the Affresh brand at least once a week) seem to 'smooth out' any tiny scratches and give the sink a brand-new look. I find it's best to dry the sink, use the wipes, and then let the sink sit overnight without putting any water on it. Looks like new in the morning! After two months of regular use, I feel the extra bit of care required for this sink is worth it in exchange for how it looks. Kind of like a silk blouse!
My old stainless steel sink with a regular finish was much easier to deal with. But it never looked pretty, not even when new. So, if you want a gorgeous, high-quality sink at an affordable price – and you are willing to pamper it a bit - this sink is it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MNTH Fabulous, comparable to $ 800 sinks
I just had this put into a remodel and it's fabulous. Super high-end, very deep, the drain strainer is awesome for catching bits of veggies or fruit that you wash. I've had Franke and Rowe sinks that cost over $1000 and this is truly a terrific value for such a great, luxury maker sink. Everyone that sees it oohs and ahhhs over it. This sink is a true steal of a deal. Just a note; I clean mine once a week with a mix of vinegar and blue Dawn in a spray bottle and a soft sponge. It keeps it looking great. I have soft water so there's not a lot of spotting.

As expected from Kraus, the sink is packaged well; foam in the exterior box and foam in the interior box that holds the sink. It comes with the sink template, stainless steel grids and stainless steel baskets, and all mounting hardware. Being that this sink is 16 gauge, this is much sturdier and heavier than my previous sink. I also love the depth of the sink (10 inches) which gives me an extra 4 inches from the builder-grade sink installed. Although I'm still deciding on the new countertop, but I know I'll need an extra person or two to help support the weight of the sink when I install it unless I get it integrated with the stainless steel countertop.

OVERALL: Not the first Krauss sink for me, won't be the last. Great quality and value. Half the price of some brands with thicker gauge 304 stainless. Accessories are nice, and just add to the experience.
SURFACE: Beautiful finish. I can't imagine anyone being unhappy with the look of this sink. Finishes up nicely with the drain which has a nice bit of thought put into the design.
PACKAGING: About the best packed sink I've had delivered. Packed not just with heavy cardboard and Styrofoam, but bagged in a thick cloth back to protect the surface and accessories.

Kraus makes some beautiful, well crafted products. The attention to detail in the packaging is second to none.
This sink is constructed out of 16-gauge T-304 stainless steel. Most stainless steel sinks you'd find in the stores only have 18-gauge stainless steel. With 16-gauge being thicker it provides both strength and sound damping qualities. To additionally dampen sounds, the bottom of this sink is covered with a sprayed on layer of rubberized material. When you tap it the sound is solid not tinny.
The documentation provided with this sink is very well put together. It is very easy to follow, with no head scratching trying to understand procedures.
This sink was extremely easy to install, and looks stunning in our kitchen.
This sink has all mounting hardware included, channel grooves sloped toward the drain, making draining foolproof.
To top off everything, Kraus includes a Lifetime Warranty!
Love everything about it, and highly recommended.

This sink is well made. I like the space and the depth which prevents water from splashing. It's a high quality sink that makes my kitchen look super chic like the ones featured in magazines.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by namenik very nice for the price
This is a Kraus, which definitely means quality craftmanship but at a much smaller price than competitive brands for basically the same style sink. A great sound reducer, and the bells and whistles of accessories too! I came packaged well, and while it may need a bit more care and pampering than the other brand, it is worth it in the long run in my opinion.
