Sink brands, Krauss, Kohler or Blanco?? for stainless sink

I know these topics get discussed so I apologize in advance...
I've spent the whole day looking at sinks online and I'm more confused than ever...

I can order Krauss online (I live in Canada), i've never seen any of their products in person.

Are Kohler or Blanco better products? I'm looking for a stainless undermount sink for a small cabinet (25" perhaps 27").

I found a brand called C-Tech as well, has anyone heard of them?

thank you

I have a Kraus SS sink and I love it, but I think if you order a 16 or 18 gauge sink from Kohler or Blanco you can't go wrong. I don't recognize the name C-Tech. Look for a shape and size that works for you. Your sink will probably be 22-24" to fit in the size base you have to work with. Were I you, I'd find the best sink configuration that worked for me and not worry about "best." Any of the 3 will be good.

I bought a 16 gauge Ruvati sink from Overstock and I love it. Kohler or Blanco are good brands but most of their sinks are 18 or 20 gauges and their 16 gauge sinks have outrageous prices. I paid $250 for the Ruvati sink and I am very impressed by the quality.

Here is a link that might be useful: Ruvati sinks on Overstock.com

Thanks! I've driven myself nuts looking at sinks :(
The Krauss fits the cabinet in the plan as is of 25".
I have to buy it online though as I haven't found a store in my city that carries them (I'm in Canada).

I bought my Kraus sink from ExpressDecor and was pleased all around.

I also have a Kraus sink and so far so good. It was just installed, but I'm pleased with quality and my contractor was equally as impressed.

We bought our Kraus undermount stainless steel sink online. No problem. It came in good packaging. It's a good sink that will last a lifetime.

We have the Ruvati RVH7300 and we are quite happy with it. Very heavy and solid. We get lots of compliments.

I bought my Kraus from overstock.com. It's advertised as 16 gauge and the lower the gauge, the heavier and stronger the stainless. It's a great sink which comes with a grid. I had never had a grid before and I love the grid.

If I have any gripe, my minor gripe is that the slope to the drain could be a smidge sharper, but it's so minor, that I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. I thought drain placement would be an issue, but because of the grid, it is a nonissue.

I am also buying a Kraus farmhouse apron front stainless steel sink. A friend just put one in her new build home and loves it. 16 gauge steel and really good prices. Just got mine from FaucetDirect.com

Krauss is made in China despite the German name. I have one in my laundry room. It came with a drain, grid and is the single bowl. It seems fine and looks nice. It was a little rough feeling when I got it but not anymore. Perhaps it had some sort of coating on it or something. The grid and drain seem a little on the cheap side but it is doing the job well so far and has been installed for about a year. It doesn't have that bling shine like a Franke would have but neither does it have the price. Sometimes you just don't need a $1000 sink!!! So far I am happy with it in every way.
