Consumer Evaluations

I installed a single of these light-weight sinks in my daughter-in-law's kitchen a couple of years ago. She opt for this 1 [partially] mainly because the larger of the basins has far more space than a typical 33" wide double sink. I.e., the left sink bottom is 22" across the diagonal, and practically 10" deep, to hold massive pans etc. It has held up nicely, showing small signs of wear i.e., there are no evident scratches (as takes place with some stainless steel sinks). She wanted a garbage disposal installed under every single basin, which introduced no strength issue with the sink. In other words, the composite material utilized is quite tough stuff it is not shiny like fiberglass or porcelain sinks, getting a sheen related to egg-shells.
The installation clips, which hold it down to the counter best worked just fine and no specific tools were necessary. Before the sink is installed, on the other hand, it is rather fragile. Although carrying the sink to the counter top hole, one corner lightly bumped against a doorway. To my horror, a sizeable piece of the sink corner broke off. We had been really lucky that the neighborhood supplier replaced it for free of charge.
Despite the fact that the photo shows a single hole for the faucet, there is a second "hole-to-be", molded in for a soap dispenser. It's located at the far rear and ideal. Most of that hole's perimeter has no material (on the sink bottom), so if you do it perfect, you can knock it out and wind up with a appropriate-sized hole. I laid the sink face down with that hole area supported by a 2" socket from a tool set. A light whack from a little hammer punched the hole center out. Again, be genuinely careful when carrying out this, or else you could break the sink.
Once installed, there did not appear to be a weakness problem and it nevertheless looks fine just after two years hence the four star rating. Having said that, one Amazon reviewer of a Blanco below-counter Anthracite sink said her sink cracked near the drain and had to be replaced, at fantastic expense.

My wife and I bought this sink to replace a stainless steel sink. My wife hated the tough water spots that would show up on the outside edge of our old sink. This new granite sink is extremely deep, looks fantastic with black appliances, and seems certainly solid. We couldn't be happier. Thank you.
