31-1/2" Undermount 60/40 Double Bowl 16 Gauge Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink
It looked great, but pretty disappointed
This sink SEEMS very high quality. It's nice and thick and will not bend when you push on it. It's insulated on the bottom so it's not noisy. It's beautiful and functional, but it SHOWS WATER SPOTS HORRIBLY. I'm talking you run water in one time and it looks AWFUL. It also scratches REALLY easily. I washed a few pans in the sink the day it was all hooked up and ready to go and immediately noticed scratches on the bottom....at which point I started using the racks :( The DELTA faucet that we bought to go on it, it WONDERFUL and you can touch it with wet hands and it doesn't show water spots at all. They need to work on their finish and this would be a wonderful sink.

Perfect size and so much more
We remodeled our 1980's kitchen this spring and I needed to find an undermount sink that would fit into a small space. We kept the existing wood cabinets, they are built such that the doors below the sink area are set in about 2 inches which makes it hard to use a deep sink without impacting the cabinet.
I almost gave up on getting a deep double sink as they were mostly too big for the space. Then I happened to see the Kraus brand sinks. Kraus has done a wonderful job in providing a selection of various sizes of sinks to satisfy tighter kitchens and tight budgets.
We were so delighted with the quality of the product especially for the price. Solid construction, sound proof and all the extras that come with their sinks. You get a removable strainer, grids and even a towel. The drain hole setback is a another great feature for using the sinks. I will be recommending Kraus for a long time, excellent products!

I am a General Contractor remodeling my own home this time around. With our goals set HIGH and our budget tight we had to really be wise when shopping. The kitchen sink is an extremely important part of your everyday life and its an area you definitely don't want to skimp on. This sink had everything we wanted and then some while being well within our budget. The 16 gauge stainless is of the highest quality and then they through in extras like strainers and sink grates. The packaging was stout, our sink came without a scratch in it.
I am very satisfied with this product and intend to use these sinks for my upcoming remodels.

Bought this sink in April and it was installed on 5-29. The installer stated that he has had problems with foreign brand sinks, after he installed it (connected the drains and the faucets) his comment was that he had no problems and was surprised. I haven't used it very much, but so far it has performed well. My husband likes the grills in the bottom of the sinks. It was packed well and shipped promptly. The protective bag was nice and now my husband is thinking of ways to use it, unless I think of something first. The sound proofing is really good.

Love our new sink!
I could not be happier with the quality of this sink and with FaucetDirect.com. We received the sink within a matter of days and it arrived in perfect condition (in a very nice box) via UPS. I love the accessories, especially the racks/grids that protect my sink from my pots & pans! Before ordering online, we had shopped around a little bit. Nothing I saw in the "big box" home improvement stores compares to what we received from FaucetDirect, and the prices here were so much better than what we saw at the plumbers showroom. We are VERY happy!

love this sink!
Looked at Franke and Blanco sinks and when you add the drains, grids, etc., they are over $600. The Faucet Direct salesperson recommended Krauss and the gauge of the stainless steel is actually better than the other two manufactures AND it comes standard with grids, detergent dispenser and drain cover. Saved me bunches of money and looks just wonderful in our kitchen.
I will recommend this sink to friends without hesitation!

After agonizing... and I DO MEAN agonizing over which sink to go with, finally decided on the KBU23. Ordered it on Monday & it arrived on Friday, so, great turn around time. It is simply beautiful. No issues with the finish, the size (we have a 36" cab.), all the extras, & the price. I was willing to pay a lot more for a 16 guage sink, but for the beauty & value, you can't go wrong with Kraus. It did have a slight exoxy like odor when we opened the box... just needs a little airing out to correct. Was looking at the combos with the faucet & soap dispenser included, but decided to go with Grohe (a faucet we had used & knew the quality of). Kudos to Kraus for a great sink with all the bells & whistles for an excelent price. We simply could not have made a better choice for our kitchen remodel!

This sink is wonderful.
The deep bowl can accommodate large pots. I love the curve of the design and the smaller seperate side sink Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.

I admit I had never heard of the Kraus brand before, but after reading the reviews I thought I'd give it a try. Boy were the reiviews right . This is a beautiful sink. Very well insulated and getting the drains and bottom rack was just a Big added bonus. I have paid more for stainless sinks in the past , but done were any better or even as nice as this sink. Would buy again in a heart beat!

I received this sink in a well packaged box. When I opened it, I was impressed with the overall quality of the product. The accessories were a welcome bonus. Pricing of this sink through Faucet Direct beat the pants off my local plumbing stores comparable offerings. Overall I am very pleased with the Kraus sink.
