Larger Bowl Stainless Steel Sink Rack for the Lakefield Series Sinks
Does the job, but....
I have same issues as person who wrote in Oct. of 2009. I have ordered 4 of these basin racks over time. The original 2 came from my plumbing contractor and they are NOT cheap. I am about to order my 5th as nicks and cuts and rust spots are making the current one look nasty. I have a biscuit colored Lakefield sink and would like to order a stainless basin rack to try to overcome this coating deterioration issue, but really don't want to have that glaring contrast show up at the bottom of the sink. And although I bleach the sink bottom every now and then, and carefully clean food and other residue from the bottom of the sink, the foot tabs on the basin rack cause a darker discoloration on the sink bottom. What to do?? Maybe pick a different kind of sink the next time around.

Like the product...one complaint!
This is the exact basin rack that I have purchased from you for the fourth time. I really like the product; totally like your service but my question to you is, why does the "coating" come off so fast? It seems like I order a rack once a year. They get rusty where the coating comes off and it starts to look bad. I am super careful never to set a hotpan or any hot item directly on the rack and. It seems that there's one particular spot where the water hits where it wears out the fastest. I'm basically the only one that uses the sink and I am very careful. I just wished they held up better for the price as it gets to be expensive when you have to continually be replacing them. I do think your service is wonderful and have complaints at all. I also like the product, just wish it could be improved on. Thank you.

I have been looking for a basin rack to fit this not exactly rectangular sink forever. I didn't realize that Kohler made one. It fits exactly, of course, with the hole in the exact right place

Good for new, not old Lakefield
We purchased a new Lakefield sink after 20 years of satisfaction with the old one, but wanted a color change. We thought we would use this sink protector in the time before the plumber made the swap, but unfortunately, though it is the exact same model from Kohler (other than color) the casting size has changed a little bit. The new sink protector does not fit the old sink. It does fit the new one though, so all is good. Just don't try it for a replacement on an older unit.

Very good product
The basin rack fits perfectly in our Kohler sink. It is very helpful in protecing the floor of the sink from scratches and in protecting dishes from hard contact with the cast iron sink. It looks good in the sink too. But, I did not rate the product as excellent only because the coating on the rack does not last. This is our third rack in about five years.

Great product, if a little fragile
This is a great looking and great functioning product. The only downside that it has is that the vinyl coating is a little too delicate. We're wearing thru them approximately one per year. There's a little bit of an irony in the product that is supposed to protect the sink, but isn't exceedingly robust itself.

Easy to Clean, Saves the Sink
I love this. It's easy to clean, saves the sink from scratches, and looks great. I ordered it to replace the beige rubber coated basin rack because the coating was all cracked, peeling and rusted. Stainless Steel is the way to go and looks great in the beige sink.

Makes all the difference in keeping a white porcelan sink clean. Also makes breakage of glassware and china almost impossible. Ordered an extra one for a spare in case Kohler stops making them.

Purchased this rack to sit next to the K-6511 rack in the other sink. It finishes this sink beautifully and adds an extra level of functionality. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Had vynil/rubber coated ones before, very hard to keep clean. The stainless steel ones are very easy to keep clean and at FaucetDirect they were less expensive then the coated ones!
