I am quite happy with this sink, from both design/quality and price standpoints. I have not yet installed this sink, but both myself and my granite contractor examined it closely. It is a fine piece of work, and I can't wait to see it under my new granite. I was also impressed with the packaging (original, with no over-box from Amazon). The sink comes in an extremely heavy and stiff cardboard box, heaviest that I have seen. The sink itself is packaged in a large cloth bag and surrounded inside and out with very dense Styrofoam. Neither the box nor the sink suffered any damage in the two-day Amazon Prime FedEx delivery.
I notice that two reviewers of the 32-inch version of this sink did not want it because it was made in China (and that Kraus was even being deceitful by not advertising this fact on their website). I think that is a very narrow and misguided view. Believe me, when you see this sink, you will not be disappointed!
Update: April 6, 2012. I've had this sink in use now for five months. Just love it! It is essential that you use the supplied bottom grid. This keeps dishes, silverware, and other objects off the sink bottom so they can drain properly. The grid also keeps the sink from getting scratched. Once a week, I remove the grid and wash out the sink and grid with a sponge and some dish washing liquid soap. This is all you need to keep the sink clean. Nothing sticks to the sink or grid.
