  • Real Review: Kraus Kitchen Sinks
    Brent Holland of Build.com reviews the many great features of Kraus kitchen sinks

  • Fully covered under Kraus' limited lifetime warranty
  • Constructed of 16 gauge premium grade T-304 stainless steel - guaranteed to never rust or corrode
  • Commercial-grade satin finish - highly scratch and stain resistant

  • Extra deep (9" depth) design is perfect for the semi-professional kitchen
  • Undermount installation; fits 28+" cabinets
  • Standard 3-1/2" drain opening compatible with most garbage disposal units (included InSinkErator)

  • Overall Width: 21" (measured from the back outer rim to the front outer rim)
  • Overall Length: 23-1/16" (measured from the left outer rim to the right outer)

What's Included:
  • Kraus 16 gauge Stainless Steel sink
  • Stainless steel bottom dish grid (basin rack)
  • Stainless steel basket strainer (sink drain assembly)
  • Mounting and installation brackets
  • Sink cutout template (for countertop cut dimensions)
  • Dish towel with Kraus logo
  • Specification Sheet / Installation Guide
Advantages of Stainless Steel over Enameled Cast Iron or Fireclay:
  • Very durable; will never chip or crack
  • Dishes usually don't break when dropped during dish washing
  • Due to relative weights, stainless steel is generally much easier (and less expensive) to install
  • Nonporous; resists bacteria
  • Neutral color fits into almost any décor - matches stainless steel appliances
Product Technologies / Benefits:
  • Extra Thick, 16 Gauge Stainless Steel: Short of paying thousands of dollars, 16 gauge is as thick as sinks come (22% thicker than 18 gauge; 36% thicker than 20 gauge). Thicker steel means a stronger sink (hence the lifetime warranty) while also offering a richer and more robust appearance to the finish that is easily discernible from the white-washed, cheap look of thinner sinks.
  • Premium Grade T-304 Stainless Steel: There are two primary types of stainless steel in the market: T-409 and the higher quality T-304. The difference lies in chromium and nickel contents; T-409 with 11% and .5% respectively, T-304 with 18% and 10%. When added to steel, these two metals prevent oxidation and rust by neutralizing sodium chloride (salt) – a common element in everyday kitchens. While cheaper sinks use T-409, Kraus sinks boast T-304, further lending to the lifetime warranty.
  • Sound Insulated: Sound insulated steel is commonly only thought of in the automobile industry. There, auto manufacturers use spray-on “Stone Guard” insulation to provide for a quieter ride and protect the steel. Borrowing this technology and adding to it, Kraus sinks use Stone Guard insulation, sprayed over rubber sound dampening pads to create a noticeably lower-tone and overall quieter kitchen sink. It also protects your cabinet from underside condensation drips.
  • Included Dish Grid (Basin Rack) and Basket Strainer (Drain): It’s a wonder why dish grids aren’t included with all sinks; they serve a valuable role. Not only do they virtually eliminate scratches, they allow the sink to properly drain, preventing sink scum and protecting your cutlery. As with all Kraus sinks, this sink includes the stainless steel sink grid along with the stainless steel basket strainer you’ll need for installation.
  • Heavily Certified: Kraus has gone to great lengths to be able to provide you, the homeowner, the rest-easy satisfaction knowing that your sink is certified and listed by all the major product testing boards in the U.S. and Canada. This means that this sink is deemed safe to use and that it meets all applicable building codes. Certifications and listings include: UPC, cUPC, CSA, IAPMO, ANSI and SCC.
Special Note:
  • This kitchen sink is available as a kitchen combo with a number of faucet choices. Like their sinks, Kraus kitchen faucets have gained tremendous momentum within the kitchen and bath industry and are highly regarded for their quality, durability, and meaningful innovation. If you are considering a purchase of this sink and also need a new faucet, we urge you to consider the kitchen combos; they truly are a deal. Under the header "We Also Recommend These Similiar Products" you will find 5 kitchen combos that include this sink. All kitchen combos that use this sink can be found by typing "KBU10 combos" into the search bar at the top right of this page.

Kraus KBU10 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Drain Pipe and basket TOO deep. While I love the quality of the sink and your service, my very experienced installer wasn't as happy because the drain piece (top quality) with basket had a pipe that was about 2" longer than the norm. It virtually made it impossible to install due to limited space in my 1951 home and dishwasher connections. I was forced to buy the shorter version at the local store. I wish I was offered the option of 2 sizes so I could have chosen the shorter. Also, although it fits a 24" cabinet it precludes using the pins on the undermount installation, a fact that should be better stated. If I ever want to change my sink I must have the fabricator come back and first remove the granite. It also precludes a faucet installation in the back of the sink (it is now on the left back corner). These 3 size issues are critical to the homeowner who is planning the kitchen before they make cabinet and sink choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a value This might be the favorite piece in my new kitchen. It's depth is great and I really like the shape. A swipe with a sponge and wipe off with a paper towel and it's always looking great. Terrific value too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous sink There is a difference, and this Kraus sink is quiet, solid and stylish. We also had a great experience when purchasing, mostly due to sales rep "Junior", who was a pro and helped us find this as well as an amazing faucet. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sink! In our recent kitchen remodel we took out an old double sink and replaced it with this sink. The old sink was larger overall, but each side was very small. This Kraus sink is wonderful. It feels spacious compared to the old sink, yet takes up less space, which allowed us to remodel and fit in an 18" dishwasher. This sink is beautiful, sturdy, and easy to wash dishes and pots and pans in. I've been using it for 2 weeks and love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sink I'm very happy with the sink, it just got installed, look beautiful, quiet, deep and have a really nice shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality We are waiting for our new counter before installing, but have been impressed by the quality and finish of this sink. It arrived beautifully packed, wrapped in a protective bag, and in perfect condition. Love the shape and size; it will be easy to reach and handle everything in the sink without straining the back. The sink is heavier gauge steel the most, with a really solid feel. The smooth finish inside and sound-dampening coating on the outside promise a long and happy relationship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Sink This was the best price out there. Could not find anyone who could beat this price, even my contractor was impressed. Service was excellent! Love this sink. Quality excellent. Shipped in just a few days. Will definitely use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional kitchen sink! Very pleased; top quality, fast shipping, excellent packaging. This sink is very well made, good sound-deadning, love the shape/size. Compares well with the similar Blanco (which I also own). Came with raised grid to protect the bottom (I highly recommend this accesory for any sink). I'd buy it again, and I'd buy from FaucetDirect as well.
