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 Grids (Basin Racks) and Basket Strainers (Drains): 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 grids along with the basket strainers 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.

1 Question from the Community

  • In order to hook up a disposal you will need what is called a disposal flange.  In this case Kraus does not make a disposal flange for this but it is a standard 3-1/2" drain opening so any manufacturers flange will work.  You can find them on our site by searching for "disposal flange" in our search bar at the top of the site.  

    What do I need to mount my Insinkerator?

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great sink! I needed a new sink for the install of my new counters. I didn't want anything deep or odd shaped - I just wanted a plain undermount sink. The big box stores did not have one so I took to the internet and found this one. It looks great with my new counters and it came with everything you need to install. I would defintely recommend this sink. It shipped very quickly and was packaged in a box in such a way that it could not be damaged. This was a great experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected! I bought this over a month ago, but it was just installed a week ago. First off, I'm used to having porcelain for a sink, so stainless steel is a new experience. So far, I'm enjoying it. I was very impressed with the speed in which it came, but it was packaged well and everything we needed was in the box. I also like the stainless steel drain covers that came with it. Also am getting used to having a sink that is a little lower than what we're used to. Very nice! I feel we got a very good deal.
