Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spam The size of the sink is insane. we told our 6 year old that it was his new spot for time out and he believed us!
My husband and I were so tired of the double sink. It constantly seemed like it was always full. We looked and looked for a stainless steel tub sink and then accidentally stumbled across this beauty when our stainless steel option was back ordered and we had tile people and a plumber scheduled! Luckily for us this product was everything that we had hoped for but didn't necessarily know we would like. For instance: it is some form of plastic composite-never had that before...love it! Also we were nervous about the color white, it does scuff when certain metals drag across it but like another review said, it comes off with cleanser easily and the sink gets scrubbed more often, always a plus. We thought we wanted metal but are so happy with the matte finish. It is different than what you would normally see in a residential kitchen and gives an updated current feel. Last, this sink looks better than all the others we shopped but was the least expensive comparatively. Overall completely satisfied with this product. Please excuse the unfinished back splash!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doggyxxx Yay! I love my Black Galaxy Swanstone sink!
I don't do reviews, but, I did a ton of searching for six months before settling on this sink and faucet and I absolutely love them so I decided I should return the favor to other information seekers. Here goes. I bought the Black Galaxy Swanstone, 33X22 to replace an old stainless dual bowl sink. I also bought the Moen Level Stainless with single handle, side sprayer and side soap dispenser. Love, Love, Love this setup. The black has tiny white specks (another person described it best as a dusting of white dust), I agree. My husband is not a plumber, but he and I took the old sink out and installed this new one with little effort and we did not know what we were doing. The sink has two holes, we needed three. We were afraid to cut the hole because, of course, if you bust it, you buy it, right. He got a power drill and bought one of the little hole cutting tools for about $6 from Home Depot that has the diamond like stuff glued on the circular end and just let the drill do the work, cut out perfectly, no problem. We did take advise from Swanstone company and ensured we supported the ledge very well before drilling. The tool was called a tile hole saw. The sink is wonderful! The only problem is that too many dishes fit in it and I don't wash dishes often enough!! We just used the sink to cut up and clean a deer - wonderful. I like the side mount sprayer for two reasons - first, I did not want to keep pulling on the faucet with the pull down sprayer for fear of working the faucet loose and second - the sprayer is really necessary to keep the sink cleaned out of debris from dishes because it is so large that food particles will stay on the sides rather than wash down the drain like a smaller sink; with a squirt with the sprayer, the sink washes out great. It is not a shiny surface, but instead a matte finish. I do like the virgin oil idea to rub on it and make it a little shiny. I've put hot pans in the sink, no problem. The faucet looks great with the sink and it a good height and reach. You can install the faucet on the side of the faucet or the front. We put it on the side; really like it, can just bump with side of hand to turn on and wash hands. I also thought the soap dispenser would be a waste, but we actually use it a lot and don't have to keep soap dispensers around the sink. Check out my photos!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blondeme Excellent choice for a kitchen sink
This single basin sink was heavier duty than expected for the price which was half what others we priced. The additional faucet holes drilled easily and the sink was simple to install. The surface is not shiny and will be easy to clean or to buff out stains should they appear. I love this sink after using it for 3 weeks now. I use a dish pan which minimizes the amount of water needed if there is handwashing to do plus there is lots of room for those extra large skillets or arm loads of greens from the garden (or accomodating a baby bathtub, LOL)

This Swanstone sink in white is exactly what I wanted and even more impressive once installed. It is a deep deep sink that litterally hides even the biggest pots and pans. I don't need to have anything sitting on the counter waiting to be washed! I do a fair amount of cooking for a crowd and this sink is wonderful, you don't even see the dishes! I live where the water is pretty hard and my old stainless always looked water spotted and grimy. By adding the high arch pull down Pfsiter faucet ( also from Home Depot) I don't have to constantly wipe everything down. I've put the sink to the test with scratchy and rusty stuff and it cleans up as easily as stainless. I have not put a scorching hot pan in it without water as I wouldn't do that anyway, but I think it would stand up. The sink has scored holes under the deck to customize openings for any type of faucet, I chose to use this faucet without the deck mount and because the sink is so deep, make sure to get a very shallow sink drain, your plumber will thank you. This one is a Kohler, oil rubbed bronze also from Home Depot. The best part of this upgrade is that Home Depot's local "Crew 2" installed it for us at literally half the cost of other plumbers in town and we were able to use our Home Depot credit to finance the entire project!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lamber Overall a good product
This is an excellent replacement for the useless, ugly, hard-to-clean, double-bowl kitchen sinks of the 80's... We were able to immediately notice a difference with the cleanliness of our sink as well as an abundance of counter space with dirty dishes "staged" in the sink. Even with several dirty dishes in the sink, we are still able to use the sink without removing any items first. Unfortunately, the only downside to this product is that i have noticed some micro-cracks around the perimeter of the sink that i'm sure are from the manufacture of the product.

My wife had this sink installed for us as an early Christmas present to me. It is an improvement over the old, standard two-basin sink in every way. It absorbs much more noise, making washing dishes a quieter affair. The deep basin allows me to soak multiple pots, plates, utensils, and whatever else all at once. The matte finish is attractive and would probably suit most kitchens well. It also seems to be less prone to staining. Pots will sometimes leave gray marks, but these are easily wiped away. All in all, this sink was a huge upgrade and I highly recommend it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MomOf2 Ok for the money
One issue would keep me from buying this sink again. It marks very easy. I have to scrub the marks off almost daily. It doesn't matter how gentile you set an items in the sink it seems to leave a black mark. Seems to be the heavy items that cause it ex. pots, pans and heavy plates. At least it comes off I guess, but having to scrub it so much to keep it looking good is getting old. It looks good when clean. The size is amazing! Drilling the additional holes for the faucet was no issue at all. But I would honestly return it if I could.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tg2024 Best sink ever!
Sink arrived quickly - faster than I expected. It was well packaged. It was installed by my husband with some advice from the Home Depot plumbing department. The installation was a little tricky due to the limited space between the drain pipe and the wall. It is installed and I just love it. It is nice and deep so I can put lots of dishes in and it is also big enough so I can wash my dogs. We got white since there is really no way to tell what the other colors look like. The store does not carry this product or any color samples. That is the one down- fall of purchasing this online. The white goes perfectly, so I was not too concerned.
