I wanted to replace my old double bowl stainless sink with a single bowl. I was concerned it might be too shallow but it was a perfect depth and now I can wash a larger pan in the sink rather than half in. The gauge and weight of this sink was far superior in weight and construction of my old sink. No more tinny sound due to the reinforced walls and bottom. The sink trays for the bottom and top were a plus.I did have to purchase a sink strainer kit when I replumbed the new sink. Sometimes you over pay for a name but in this instance it was well worth it.

The Kohler Sous faucet design reminds me of the faucets I used while working in a fast food
joint which I liked as it made it easy to work with large pots and pans.The high arch design and integrated sprayer make it easy to fill or wash my 20 quart stock pot without having to tilt it or fill it up with the help of a small pot; I also able to clean 12” x 12” dehydrator trays standing straight up. When I would first turn on my old faucet the pressure would drop slightly within a couple of seconds but with the Kohler faucet, it puts out a stream of water that is slightly narrower, stronger, and the pressure remains consistent.
The nozzle attaches to the end of a 9” swivel arm via magnets and when the nozzle is placed near the end of the swivel arm it will snap into position which means you don’t have to worry if you have properly reattached the nozzle.
The swivel arm rotates left or right as space allows and the nozzle can be rotated independently from the swivel arm. The one thing I don’t like is there is no way to lock the faucet in spray mode. In order to get spray, you have to push in the switch on the nozzle and hold it in otherwise the water coming out of the nozzle reverts back to a stream, I knocked off a star because I use the sprayer a lot.
I am waiting on my granite counter tops, but I cannot wait to get the sink installed. I have a 30” double basin sink where one side is shallow (6") for vegetable preparation. The vegetable basin, which is 3" shallower than the main basin, is seldom used which leaves me with the main basin (19"). Though the new sink is 1” narrower than my current sink, it has much more usable space. Also, it comes with a stainless steel grid for the bottom and a utility shelf with cloth bar. The stainless steel utility shelf fits across the sink so you can place sponges/rags to dry out or anything else you want nearby but not in the sink. Excellent Kohler quality - highly recommend!

I'm absolutely blown away by the quality of this sink. It being a 16 gauge steel sink it is by far heavier duty than any other steel sink I have seen. The finish is top notch and comes with all of the racks you would ever want for this sink. The faucet itself though isn't on the same par of quality as the sink itself. It is very light weight hinting that it is made of cheaper craftsmanship than the sink itself. For the money the sink alone is worth it.

In less than a week the sink bottom had scratches in it. I have had stainless steel sinks in the past, and have never had this problem. Next time I will purchase a different brand.

Christy, my name is Jessica with Kohler Customer Service. I am sorry to hear you are not satisfied with your Strive sink. Scratches in a stainless steel sink are normal and will blend in as part of the sink over time. You can reduce minor scratching by using Bar Keeper's Friend Soft Cleanser and a soft cloth, rubbing with the gran of the sink. Stainless steel polish should be used once a week as well. The use of sink racks will also help eliminate scratches in the basin as well. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact our Customer Service team at KohlerCustServ@kohler.com. We're happy to help! - Jessica P. KOHLER Customer Service.

Well you know you have a high quality product when both the counter top and plumber come in and say nice sink. The finish is very nice and after going to a one bay sink I will never got back. The water pressure is low on the faucet but does have a button you can push to increase the pressure. The other nice thing is the spray pattern,it comes out in the shape of a fan. Very easy and simple to use. I will say the counter top company had no issues installing the sink, the plumber did have a few issues with the faucet. I would recommend taking the screws that tighten the faucet out before spinning the nut on and also read the directions as far as the weight being installed. It is a great sink and faucet holds up well and looks great, highly reccomend.

I almost didn't buy this sink. We completely redid the kitchen, and the countertop company offered to include a sink for free. I was very close to taking them up on it, but I'd already bought this one. So glad I didn't return it. The depth is exactly what I need - and makes washing bigger pots and pans so much easier than in my old sink. Highly recommend - it's a good sink.

This undermount sink gives my kitchen a whole new look. The sink looks great and the depth is nice for me. I kind of have a tight space for my plumbing and I am still able to fit my disposal in. The Simplice faucet is very nice also. I really like the height design on this and the pull away spray hosel makes clearing the sink easy. The handle has nice tension and feels high quality when you pull it.

I like my tools and appliances simple, and this sink/faucet combo meets that requirement. The brushed look on the sink is exactly what I wanted: not too much, but enough to hide eventual scuffs and buffs. The material is thick enough (16 gauge) that it doesn’t sound tinny when I set something inside (the sound dampening helps too!). And it drains well without being so sloped that a tall glass might tip over. The faucet is functional and simple too; the handle and movement feel solid and durable, the finish is beautiful, and the solid and spray streams are exactly what they should be and it’s easy to change between them. I think it’s a little pricey for a single-basin sink, but I also think you get what you pay for, and Kohler stands behind this sink with a limited lifetime warranty. It includes a bottom rack so it always drains and a small utility rack shelf for sponges and such. Looking forward to a long and positive relationship with my new sink and faucet.

This sink and faucet is tops! I have installed a few previous sinks in the past and this one is by far the best quality and design. It was easy to install and setup. Took me a day to get it all day. Kohler is great brand, highly highly recommend if you are looking for a compact size sink and "fancy" faucet.
The stainless steel design gives it a unique look and grabs everyone's attention that comes by and visits.
