Rated 1 out of 5Â by Disappointed Rust!?!?
We're building a new house. We purchased this sink as a temporary inexpensive sink until we could afford to do the kitchen we really want. We wanted a sink that would last a few years without paying an arm and a leg.
The sink has been installed for less than a month and we haven't even moved into the house. It is rusting! Small streaks of rust are forming in the abrasions left by the process that makes it a satin finish.
Either Elkay is using substandard material and fobbing it off as "stainless", or they are using tooling that has been contaminated with regular carbon steel. Either way, stay clear of this sink unless you like the rusty look.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Sink Rust or water residue
The sink began rusting noticably when it was 4 years old. Streaks and multiple splotches of rust near the fixture. Elkay first suggested it may be water residue, so they mailed a free polishing kit. However, the rust is forming from the underside and at 5 years old, the rust patch is about 5 inch square spread over the underside.
It helps to clean the sink , but the rust returns to the top surface. I would not buy this brand as a replacement for the current sink.

I bought this sink about a year ago. Almost immediately I noticed water stains that would have to be scrubbed off with a brush. To keep it stainless it had to wiped dry after every use. Not so with my previous stainless sink. Looks very trashy if you don't keep it dry. Not good quality stainless.....save your money and buy a sink with a higher rating, bigger price tag (because you get what you pay for).....something with higher quality stainless.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mclain65 Perfect replacement
This was the perfect replacement sink for our old one. We really like the deep basins and it was an excellent value.
