Diamond Single Basin Silgranit II Kitchen Sink 24" x 20 13/16"
great choice for small sink base
I had very limited sink style choices for the 24-inch sink base in my new kitchen. I needed a deep sink, as big as could fit, and I didn't want stainless or porcelain, which left me with copper or silgranit. I had been looking at copper, but the expense, and my fear of wrecking the sink, pretty much left me with the Blanco silgranit. I am so happy that I bought this sink, and the price of the product on this site is significantly lower than other retailers. I love the D-bowl design of this sink, its durability, and ease of cleaning (just soap and water - and the sink shines up nicely with an occasional olive oil rub down). My one caveat for anyone buying this sink for a 24-inch base is that it barely fits into the base. My contractor had to notch out the sink base and the sink actually rests on the base, and it not mounted to the countertop, as undermount sinks typically are. I also had very limited space for a faucet. If you buy this sink for a 24-inch base, you will only be able to fit a one-hole install on the upper right corner and one on the upper left. So we installed a Kohler pullout faucet on the right, and the matching soap dispenser on the left. It is a very tight fit underneath, but it is functional above the counter. You will just need a talented and creative contractor to make it work. If you have a larger sink base (over 26 inches wide) you shouldn't have any problems at all with the install (but you still may be limited to a 2-hole install, as the sink is 21 inches from front to back).

kitchen sink review
This product was beautiful and arrived in good condition(very nicely packaged). I love the dark brown coffee color, much "softer" than the black, MUCH warmer than stainless; I was heartbroken to find out it was NOT for use in a cabinet, but for an island-application only---it possibly would've worked except for the fact that I was using granite and wouldn't have given the cut-clearance they require with that medium. Had you had a sink w/the arched back that could've fit a 24"cabinet & given the 3" margin required for the granite sink cut-out, I would've ordered it in a heartbeat

Blanco Granite Sink
We love this sink. The Cafe Brown color is dark brown and looks great with the new granite countertops. The sink is deep. Our sink base is somewhat narrow, which limited the type of sinks we could buy. This sink works great and has a nice curve to the back. The picture on the website doesn't really do the sink justice. It's better than it looks online.

Love this sink!
This is the second black sink I've purchased. I love the rich color, high quality and good looks of this sink. Not too big, not too small, it's just right. Great for cleaning large soup pots, roasters, etc. Deep enough to keep water from splashing onto counter.

My sister talked me into installing this sink in my new kitchen. I'm so glad I listened to her. It's absolutely gorgeous. I have it in brown with the matching drain cover. So easy to clean. Love, love this sink.

Love the sink..
Perfect size for large pots and pans. We only had a 33 inch base cabinet to fit a sink. We chose the single bowl Blanco #440172 and we are very pleased.
