Kitchen Sinks and Sinks and Sinks ...

NQuisitiveBlondeFebruary 14, 2014


I'm new to the site and to remodeling, but everytime I googled a question, I ended up reading the forums on this website and so I joined.

First, I need some advice on a kitchen sink; I would like one that comes with grids and strainer baskets:

I fell in love with Vigo, but they seem pricey.

I've found a sink I like on MrDirect, but I'm dubious of the quality because of the prices. I'm also dubious because I'm not convinced that the good reviews I've read at various locations online--Amazon,, and this site--are not a product of MrDirect itself.

Finally, I've got my eye on a Ruvati, but the sink seems excessively heavy, even for a 16g SS sink.

Thoughts would be lovely!

All of those are import brands. I'd recommend an American Standard, Blanco, Franke, or Kohler. Those have great quality, good customer service, and have stood behind their products for generations. That's especially important for an undermount sink. It's going to last longer and endure more abuse than most marriages!

People on here who have Ruvati sinks have spoke very highly of them. Same goes for Kraus (including myself).
