32-3/4" Undermount 50/50 Double Bowl 16 Gauge Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink with Pullout Spray Kitchen Faucet and Soap Dispenser
Top of the line
I purchased a double sink and faucet kit and was delightfully surprised the faucet was heavy weight unlike anything I looked at in the local department store. The retracting hose top od the line, the spring was the strongest I had ever felt. The sink protectors were of high grade material and fit like they were custom made. Every thing about this facet and sink were top noch. Do not hesitate to buy.

Love and Hate the sink
This sink is beautiful, however, it is not highly scratch and stain resistant. We had it installed by our contractor and we did not use it until the all the plumbing was redone. Unfortunately, the second time I ran the water in the sink washing a dish I noticed several large scratches in the bottom of one sink, they didn't show while the sink was dry but as soon as it gets wet they really show up. I don't know how or when the scratches happened but there had not been any hard activity in the sink while the installation was going on. The fact that it stated it was "highly scratch and stain resistant" was one of the top selling points. Really disappointed. Also, the faucet that comes with it is very tall and with the deep sink the water goes everywhere. Took some time to figure the best way to use it without soaking the kitchen.

Industrial kitchen quality
Initial impressions were confirmed when we opened the box to show a future customer the quality of sink and faucets we use. The sink is HEAVY and looks great. The faucet is very long and combined with the sink makes for an almost industrial kitchen look without losing the eye appeal. The sink sells itself; we just ordered 2 more.

The quality of this sink and faucet are great! This was my first attempt at installing an under-mount. Make sure to install the faucet first, due to the depth of this sink it was nearly impossible to get my big hands up behind the sink to install the nut on the faucet. Much cursing!
Other than that, to make installation easier, I put a 2 x 4 on top of the counter and drilled 2 holes in it where the drain baskets came through, I then put a 1/4" threaded rod (about 18" long) through the drain baskets (without the sink strainers) put about a 6" square of plywood on the bottom of the drain opening and put a nut and fender washer on each end and used this to tighten the sink into place. I then lowered it down 1" and smeared the rim with gorilla Glue two part epoxy and tightened it back into place. I let this dry overnight and then installed the brackets with regular screws (make sure you have about a 12" long screwdriver bit, as the room is pretty tight) I then took some more epoxy and smeared on the brackets before I tightened them up. Be sure to wear a pair of disposable gloves. So I never used the little mounts that were to be epoxied into the counter. Then I caulked around the inside lip of the sink. I would advise to make the opening a tad smaller (1/4") than the template so you don't have a reveal to contend with. Here is where I removed the threaded rods and installed the sink strainers. No plumbers putty was needed, just the little white foam O rings. So I was very pleased with this combo!!! With the Granicrete it looks GREAT!

Overall great product, deep sink is nice and extra solid! all accesories are superb quality as well a great buy! I only gave 4 stars because I am having issue with spray selector, but am pretty sure it is due to my excessive water pressure in my house. I would definately recommend.

We had a Kraus sink and tap combo shipped to canada and faucet direct made it easy, they communicated with us about delivery time and all costs quoted were accurate. Sink and tap quality are outstanding. Sold and well built and good looking. No regrets.
