Craftsmanship is outstanding! Accessories are a real bonus and the quality of material overall is impressive. I love the roll out drying rack that fits on built in ledge!! We have just installed so no usage or cleaning feedback yet. Sounds quiet when you tap on basin. I would highly recommend to anyone. Hands down the best stainless steel farmhouse sink out there!
If you are looking for a farmhouse/apron front sink you already expect to either pay a premium for install or put in a little thought to prepare the sink base yourself.
We just installed this sink and expect it to wear like any other stainless sink. We replaced a very nice cast iron sink with this as we didn't want another white cast iron sink as ours was prone to showing every wear mark from the other "K" brand.
Overall, the sink was pretty easy to install. I installed the sink in a 36 inch base cabinet. This is contrary to what most of what you find on the internet. The internet claims you need to install this type of sink in a base at least 3 inches larger than the sink. After preparing the base there is a minor reveal of about 1/16" on either side of the base. Basically, the face of the cabinet is cut to match the height of the sink and the sides are notched to match the profile. I also cut the top of the base where the sink rests, so when the sink is installed the rear of the base is a little proud of the sink. This way the countertop does not put weight onto the perimeter of the sink. The sink is siliconed in place.
When the countertops are installed the space between the countertop and the sink will have silicone as well.
The drain that came with the sink was mostly plastic, so I opted for a complete stainless steel drain I purchased from a third party.
Overall, my wife and I are very happy with this sink.
We joke with our kids that if we had this when they were babies we could easily have bathed them in this huge 36" sink. We can't wait for our countertops and backsplash to be in place to finish off this remodel.

Honestly, I should have peeled off the blue plastic before installing. Just noticed a dent in the front that clearly came from another piece of metal and obviously we are way past returning it. Just so bummed I will be staring at this for the next 30 years. Check the product before installing.
