ultra cheap sink for expensive priceWe bought this sink a few months ago for a kitchen renovation and only installed it a week ago (in a "temporary" counter top - in anticipation of having the templating work done for the new quartz counter top). When we chose the sink, we didn't know the difference between a good and bad sink, and did not pay adequate attention to important details.
This is a 28" sink (which is actually pretty small). I have no excuse for missing that one except that it was the biggest one I saw in the store, and assumed it was comparable to the more less standard size sink we had at home - I was wrong.
Probably the most disappointing thing is that it is made with cheap 20 gauge steel. Most buying guides I've found recommend a minimum of 18 gauge (lower number = thicker steel), but an ideal of 16 gauge steel.
20 gauge = 0.9mm thick
18 gauge = 1.2mm thick
16 gauge = 1.5mm thick
Within the first two days of using the sink (just washing normal dishes), it started to develop noticeable scratches, and it keeps getting worse each time we used it. We've only had it installed for a week and it already looks scratched up.
Instead of this sink, look for one that is made of 16 gauge good quality stainless steel (T-304). A quick search online shows many very nice options that fit these criteria for a little over half the price of this sink.
I've now ordered another sink and as disappointed as I am to have wasted so much money on such a low quality product, I am so grateful that I had the experience I did BEFORE the templating work took place for my quartz counter. Once the counter is cut for a given sink - especially under-mount - it becomes very costly to change. I'm hoping this review might help others to not make the same mistake.

Very good looking sink but terrible to maintainChose this sink as it's a beauty. However, it is impossible to maintain it clean - water drops constantly leave stains. Also, very easy to scratch. Definitely do not recommend.

Not a good fit with garbarator installI installed this sink in a clients new kitchen. It looks nice but i am having a huge problem with major vibrating after installing a garbarator mounted to the underside of sink. I feel like the gauge of the sink is not solid enough to support a garbarator
