DO NOT BUY!!!! I bought this sink due to the good reviews and modern look, but it was a big mistake. Not even one week after having it installed there was rust spots on the sink. The material also easily stains. If you leave plates in the sink overnight expect to get ring stains that won't come off. Our other sink has been in use for over 15 years and still looked just as good as the day it was installed. I have also lived in apartments, where they install cheap quality, and even their sinks held up much better.
I now have to pay someone to remove this sink and install a new one. On top of having paid for the initial install.
Not sure why this sink has good reviews. Probably fake reviews as there is plenty of other reviewers stating the same rust and staining issue. I am disapointed that Home Depot continues to carry this horrible sink.

Thick metal, deep bowls, nice finish. Needs better packaging for shipment. Arrived with dent in front edge flange. Would not have been usable as drop in mount. We went with undermount. Overall satisfied but it’s always frustrating to receive damaged item, which should be foreseeable and actions taken to prevent.

Large single basin with offset drain was perfect for my application. The wire shelf sealed the deal for me. The entire exterior is coated with a thin rubber-like paint to dampen noise. Used this to make a PARTS WASHER in the shop!

This is a beautiful, deep bowled sink. I love the flat, sleek surfaces, and the grates are a nice addition that I haven't had before.
