Diamond Single Basin Silgranit II Kitchen Sink 33 1/2" x 22"
I put this in my kitchen...black single bowl sink in a Tropical Brown granite counter top. It was beautiful. (past tense because I've moved...so I am going to put in another one.) I LOVED the single bowl size. I could put anything in it.
When ever it looked dull (from water) i would rub it with food grade mineral oil, using a paper towel, and it would be shiny and beautiful for 1-2 weeks...water would bead off of it.
The ONLY down side of the big sink is if you need to fill the sink for something, it takes a lot of water, so I kept a rubber made type tub handy to fill with water in case I needed just a gallon or so for something. Hope that makes sense.
I used to fill my sink with hot water and float a bowl of pizza dough in it to let the dough rise...with the super single I filled a large bowl with hot water and put the smaller bowl inside...that is the only time I needed a smaller sink and this was a good option.
Don't hesitate to go with the big basin, or the granite sink. It is functional and beautiful. Now I need to pick my new granite and my new sink!

I LOVE my sink!!
I have used this sink for a few weeks now. I really like it a lot. Its so much better than my old porcelain double bowl.
The sink is easy to keep clean. Its nice and deep. I can wash any of my big pots and pans without any problems. The only negative thing I have to say is about installation. I wish the Blanco Co. would consider the fact that not all of us have professionals to install our sink. My husband who I know can do anything had a hard time with installation. I wish they put an installation booklet in the box. One other thing, you don't need to order any clips everything is in the box.

Best Christmas Gift!!!
I ordered this beautiful sink for Christmas to replace my double-bowl stainless steel sink that was over 10 years old. When we opened the box to install it, it had been damaged in shipping. Contacted Build.com and they shipped another one right out to us. This one arrived all in one piece, thankfully.
My husband took out the old and installed my new Blanco easily. The only thing we needed that wasn't in the box was putty. I also ordered the stainless steel drain to go with my new faucet. It is absolutely the best gift I have ever given to myself!! I could not be more pleased.
I highly recommend this sink for its size, color, appearance and durability. Thank you Build.com for a Great price for a Great sink. Your customer service is excellent.
So, so happy!!!

Love This Sink
This sink is beautiful. I love the large size and how nice it looks with my countertops. All my friends comment on how much they love it! I love that the drain is to one side so that I can put dishes in the sink and still put stuff in the garbage disposal while cooking! I am moving soon and trying to figure out how remove an existing sink and replace it with this beauty. I had stainless my entire life and don't miss it one bit!

I've had this sink for over a year and it looks good as new and Very Happy with its performance. It arrived very well packed in styro foam cornered heavy gauge box. Directions were easy to read and follow and the faucet & accessory knock-outs easy to pop out if need (follow instructions).
Performance: It cleans very easy with soap and water and occasional 50/50 mix of water and bleach. I have a necessary water softener here in Tampa, FL but get occasional get minor white residue around faucet bases so about twice a year use a Arm and hammer Magic Erasure and it comes off with no effort good as new. Have put hot pots and pans straight off the burner and zero affect on sink. Some people complain of staining and I could maybe see this with lighter sinks even the brown maybe but the Black is zero and wet toss everything in the deposal. I must say opt for the matching black “Blanco sink basket” includes disposer fittings as this fits perfect and looks as though it is part of the sink. Finally you will absolutely love the single basin feature of this sink vs. the split type. Big pots and pans are effortless to clean with no barrier in the way. I noticed the big box stores were a big pricier at the time I bought mine and only sold the split type.
I can tell you, you will absolutely be satisfied with the look and performance of this sink. Everybody who comes over and sees it wants one ;-)
I will upload pictures shortly.

Love the black granite single bowl!!
Three years ago when we remodeled I put in a black granite single bowl sink.When we moved to our new home and started our kitchen remodel a month ago I knew I would get the same sink again. I love it! Friends have even now put them in their homes when remodeling. No staining, scratching or heat issues. I can easily put large pans or pots in it with ease.

Love my new sink!
For several years I have wanted to replace my old sink. I had seen similar sinks like this, but they were always the divided kind. I finally found this and was thrilled. Had to have it. I love having the single basin, I have so much room. It has made all the difference in my kitchen. It looks and is fantastic. I love it. I would recommend this to anyone looking to replace their kitchen sink.

Blanco was the best choice
We spent alot of time researching to find our sink. We finally decided on athe Blanco deep composite-granite sink and we couldn't be happier. The shipping was quick, the transaction was easy and the product is excellent. We would definitely recommend Blanco to our friends.

This sink was worth every penny - large and easy to clean without that hated divider. The only down size is that it did not come with a template. I don't know if that was Blanco's fault or Faucetdirect.
