Gorgeous, very well constructed, quiet, deep and long enough for large pots and pans with long handles. I love the thick metal rack that sits on the bottom of the sink which protects the beautiful finish. The high quality stainless is evident along with a nice cutting board and a very versatile folding rack. This is truly a work station more so than just a sink. Extremely well priced. Highly recommend it!

DIMENSIONS DON'T MATCH DRAWING
The image that shows the dimensions of this product are completely wrong. It shows the tub of the sink being 30 inches when in fact it is 27.75 inches. Front to back it says 19 inches when in fact it is only 16 inches. When it arrived I opened the box, looked at it and checked the model number to confirm I was shipped the right sink. I was. I trusted the images so I did not actually measure it before I handed the sink to our counter fabricator. They cut our quartz, installed the sink and it was then that I noticed it looked small. It's not the counter fabricators mistake so now I have to live with a smaller sink than I would have if the dimensional drawing was truthful. I'm assuming all Kraus dimensional images for under-mounts have this issue so buyer beware. It's an otherwise nice sink and the accessories seem to be nice quality. It's unfortunate that a couple bad drawing typos cause disappointment with the product but its not fair to people who are expecting one thing to get something so different. The dimensions aren't just a little off, they're way off.

I love this sink and it looks lovely. It is very large and fits all our pots and pans which is nice (I came from a double sink and this larger sink is much better). The workstation is a great feature but I'm not using it as much as I thought I would as it takes space away from the sink. However, if I entertain and need more counter space, I'm sure I will use it more. The drain on the far right might be causing my garbage disposal to not drain right. It is hard to tell if this is an issue with the disposal or the sink but the way the water pools up on the disposal splash guard prevents even water from draining. I've thrown a lemon at the splash guard and it won't go in so I think that is an issue more with the splash guard but odd that water won't even drain. I switched out the splash guard and that helped. Something to think about. The sink does scratch a little but we are overall very happy with it (except the draining issue).

Overall - Awesome Sink!
We have been researching workstation sinks ever since we saw the fancy-schmancy one on TV. We are redoing our kitchen and had to go with an offset drain sink. Kraus is the only one we found that gave this option with the quality we were looking for When we first opened the box for this we were surprised with the packaging and sink quality. Kraus uses 16 gauge steel and it is very heavy duty! It is soundproofed and looks terrific. I do love Krauss' roll-out rack because it is rubber-coated, very functional and it works great! Recently the large box store had a similar Kohler sink. We were surprised to see it only used 20 gauge steel and the accessories seemed very chintzy when compared to this sink. The quality of the Kohler felt and appeared dramatically less substantial. The sink is not without its cons. The biggest is the very squared-off edges. HUGE pain in the butt to keep clean! The corners are debris catchers. Plus, most come with a strainer option and this does not - that accessory would have been helpful. We have been using our Kraus workstation sink for a few months now and we can tell you overall this sink rocks! The roll-up rack is great for the few items that we have to hand-wash - or to place just washed veggies before using them on the cutting board. The bottom rack does a great job of helping to minimize scuffs and scrapes. We would purchase this again.

This sink is great. It took us a while to find a sink that we really liked, and I'm glad we decided on this one. The integrated ledge is super convenient, and NOT a novelty like I thought it might be. We basically always have the ledge accessory on the sink, typically folded in half, and usually use it to let things dry (wine glasses, pots, travel coffee cups, etc). The cutting board is also great, and having everything as part of the sink keeps things looking clean. The off-center drain is also nice since we are able to utilize a much larger amount of the cabinet underneath than we would if the drain was in the center. One thing to note: this sink is deep. Like super-deep. If you choose it, be sure to get a faucet that has a pullout out sprayer that can extend AT LEAST 19" (this is the distance from the center of the sink to a corner). Because the drain is off center, it can be a bit more of a pain to clean since you typically have to push the food on the bottom of the sink from the far end of the sink all the way to the drain to get it all clean. This is significantly easier if you can extend a sprayer to the far end of the sink so that you can spray everything all the way to the drain. Without a long sprayer, it is really painful to get totally clean. I coupled the sink with the Delta Trinsic Faucet and work really well together. Ideally, the nozzle on the faucet would extend another inch or two to make it a little easier to clean the sink, but I'm quite happy with that combination. Also note that I have had the sink for 6 months, have always had the bottom wire accessory in, and have not had any scratches in the sink. Highly recommended.

Doesn’t drain water
My contractor just installed this sink today. The sink looks beautiful but water pools in different areas which is unfortunate. I’ve never seen a sink do this.

Hi, thanks so much for your review. This sink features a less dramatic 1/8" pitch in the bottom that allows for safer and more stable stacking of dishes and pots and pans. Sometimes feature for some can be a burden for others. We also find sometimes a garbage disposal or P trap can put pressure on the drain and hinder draining processes. Feel free to call us at 1-800-775-0703 or chat, email, or text us if you have any other questions or concerns you would like to discuss, we would be happy to help! Kraus
