Staccato 33" Double Basin Top-Mount 18-Gauge Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink with SilentShield
Highly Rewarding Project
Kohler's combination of flowing lines, rectilinear boundaries and transitional relief elements produce an outstanding finished appearance for this stainless sink. A comment noted in prior research regarding flexible faucet mounting behavior proved true in preliminary mock-up and was addressed by shaping a hardwood block to backup the underside of faucet mouning area. A tall single hole faucet now installed exhibits little movement using this combination. Product would warrant an emphatic five star rating but for this lack of built-in rear deck reinforcement.

Might be too soon to tell....
I've only had this sink for about a week. Many of the reviews I read said it scratched very easily, but I haven't found this to be the case. One thing I'm noticing is that the water doesn't quite all drain out, seems like there's always a puddle in the sink, so I'm not too crazy about that.
I ordered the one hole so I could put just a faucet in for a clean look, but, like someone else had mentioned, it leaves the faucet kind of wobbly. I didn't want to use the metal piece that goes on top, so the plumber put it underneath to stiffen it, but it's still a little wobbly. He has to come back for something else, so I may ask him to put a piece of wood there instead, as another person had suggested.

I have had this sink 3 years--after the first month there were scratches everywhere--it definately does not add to the character. I have tried cleaners and polishes--no help at all. If you are actually going to use your sink beware--it will look old and used in no time, everything scratches it.

We love this sink and the look is sleek and modern. We bought the sink insert racks and strongly recommend to do that to protect bottom of sink.
Had professionally installed and it was smooth and fit perfectly. Only problem is that it scratches very easily.
I don't even remember laying anything down on the outside corner and it scratched bad!
But looks awesome! LOVE IT!

Beautiful sink, great seller
This Kohler sink is gorgeous and Faucet Direct made it easy to purchase my first sink online. They described it accurately and it came in good shape. The sink itself is very nice, the only negative comment is that it had a very slight warp in the front and my plumber had to caulk it down. Other than that it fits great and I would recommend this to anyone.

I LOVE this sink. It gave my kitchen a whole new look. I ordered it on Saturday and it arrived on Wednesday. Faucet Direct has the lowest price on the internet so don't waste your time trying to find a better price because you won't find one.
