Product Overview

Designed to handle the demands of the busiest kitchen, KRAUS Outlast MicroShield Scratch-Resist Stainless Steel sinks offer maximum durability, even with heavy use. The engineered material masks scratches and scuffs, retaining a like-new appearance with minimal maintenance. Each KRAUS Outlast MicroShield sink is made from a single sheet of steel imprinted with an embossed pattern that provides superior resistance to dents and damage. The cutting-edge manufacturing process creates a textured surface with high wear points that reduce contact with heavy cookware, preventing damage from daily use. Since thicker steel means a stronger sink, all sinks in the KRAUS Outlast MicroShield Series are made with TRU16 real 16-Gauge stainless steel, always 1.5 mm thick. The extra-thick construction reduces vibrations, for a lower-toned sink that does not sound tinny. Best-in-industry KRAUS NoiseDefend sound dampening technology virtually eliminates noise when the sink is in use. Protective undercoating is added to enhance soundproofing and provide thermal regulation. KRAUS Outlast MicroShield Stainless Steel sinks come with a number of useful kitchen accessories to make maintenance easy. A stainless steel bottom grid, 3-piece basket strainer, and KRAUS towel are included with purchase. All sinks come with mounting hardware for easy installation. Explore KRAUS Outlast MicroShield Stainless Steel sinks, and discover the perfect solution for your busy kitchen.

Answers

Hi NeedKitchenHelp, Thank you for your inquiry. Our Microshield sinks have the same color and main difference would be the finish is matte. This will still go well with stainless appliances and fixtures. The Microshield finish allows the sink scratch resistant. Please contact our customer service department directly at 1-800-775-0703 or by email at customerservice@kraususa.com. Best Regards, Kraus USA Customer Support

Is it hard to clean dose food get stuck in the groves or is it just textured

Asked by Lou December 28, 2018

Answers

It is very easy to clean. It is not grooved, just textured.

Is this 16- gauge?

Asked by Molvi September 7, 2018

Answers

Hi Movi, Thanks for your inquiry. Made with durable T-304 stainless steel, our KBU12E Undermount sink will stand up to constant use, and easily handles your toughest kitchen tasks. Commercial grade satin finish makes cleanup as easy as wiping the surface with a damp cloth. Since thicker steel means a stronger, more dent-resistant sink. This model is made from TRU16 real 16-gauge stainless steel. Always 1.5mm thick. NoiseDefend™ soundproofing technology ensures a quiet kitchen experience by eliminating noise and vibration when the sink is in use. Our KBU12E also includes free kitchen accessories, including a fitted stainless steel bottom grid with non-scratch rubber bumpers. Hope this helps. Please also feel free to call us at 800-775-0703 or email us at customerservice@kraususa.com with any questions. We’d be happy to assist you. Best, Mike Kraus USA

Large Single Bowl Sink
I love my Kraus Undermount Sink!
by bigtime07
Easily Scratches
I am not satisfied with my purchase. This sink was installed for less than a week by the time it already had MULTIPLE scratches, for normal use. Also, no matter how much I clean it, it never looks fully clean or shiny. There is no reason why this sink should be rated anything above one star. Very disappointed.
by Ang
Response from Customer ServiceOct 7, 2020
Thanks for taking the time to provide us with your review and feedback. We are sorry to hear that you have experienced some scratching with this kitchen sink. Scratches are inevitable in any sink material, including stainless steel. These are merely usage scratches. Overtime, these scratches will become uniform with the sink's grain and blend into the overall finish of your sink with proper cleaning. Most minor scratches can be softened with a fine (white) 3M Scotch Brite pad, or 3M Scotch Brite Natural Fiber Non-Scratch Scour Pad, accompanied by a deep cleansing agent such as Bar Keepers Friend. However, if you do not find that this resolves your issue entirely, please contact our customer service department directly at 1-800-775-0703 or email us directly at customerservice@kraususa.com so we can look into this with you.

Extremely happy! Top quality product especially considering the price point. We've had no rust others are mentioning. Kraus shipping packaging is 5-star too. The faucet was packed in precision cut foam (see pic). The sink was solidly packed in form-fitted styrofoam - I mention this because it further demonstrates attention to detail. We had an excellent Carefree AZ Home Depot contractor, D Moe, install this All-in-One kit and LG solid surface counter (I'll do a separate review).

60/40 Kraus Stainless Steel Sink
Perfect choice for our remodel. We enjoyed our first Kraus sink so much, we chose Kraus again for our most recent remodel in a different home.
by Dahly3
High quality, low noise sink
Love our new Kraus sink and faucet. It really does have great sound proofing. I also like that it came with drains and strainers. Nice touch that the drains come with bottom and top seals and don't require plumbers putty. Easy install.
by Loppster
Beautiful and wonderfully functional sink
I am a very happy customer. I was looking for a deep sink and one that allowed me to have many holes for the faucet I chose. I went everywhere and finally found this Kraus KTM33 and I had never heard of this brand. I searched reviews and found so many happy customers and I have now joined those happy customers!
