Some are so much less than others it makes you wonder. Any recs for a reputable site?

I'm looking at a full size drop in in anthracite, thanks!

qualitybath dot com.

They are excellent. Might not be the rock-bottom price, but pretty low. Sometimes if you are seeking the rock-bottom price, you get what you pay for.

Thanks, Mrs.! I know exactly what you mean--are they selling seconds or what?

:off to check out quality bath:

Anyone else have good results at certain sites?

I got my sink elsewhere, but ordered other stuff (Hangrohe) from qualitybath. Good service, good prices, standard defect-free products.

When you say "full size drop in in anthracite" I am assuming you mean the BlancoDiamond Super Single with the fabulous offset drain. I'll link it. It's the sink I've had before, and what I am getting again in my new kitchen. Once you have an offset drain, you don't know how you lived without it LOL. The sink can be undermounted or drop-in-mounted.

P.S. I opted not to get the sink grid with the sink. I've had one before, and it's just not my thing. I think sink grids are necessary in a stainless sink to prevent scratches, but I find them unnecessary in a Silgranit sink. Other people love sink grids. There are threads on the Kitchens Forum on the topic. Just mentioning it, cause it's good to order a grid at the same time as the sink if you want the grid.

Don't forget your local retailer. I checked the online prices of blanco authorized "e-tailers" and the prices of others which were lower (but not enough lower for me to take the warranty risk). I called a local salesman I'd talked with briefly about faucets expecting to hear msrp, and prepared to negotiate for the auth etailer price (even though it would be more with sales tax). I was pleasantly surprised and think I now have the best price, the satisfaction of being a good citizen, a solid warranty, and a local person to help if there is a problem.

I had a great experience with Home and Stone, which I chose based on old GW threads. My 3 sinks arrived in perfect condition and were very well packaged. I would also consider amazon.

I second laurajane02's recommendation of homeandstone. We had excellent experiences with them. Bought Silgranit Super Single sink from them, and it was packed unbelievably well, and came within 3 days. Homeandstone is an Authorized Dealer for Blanco.

I have to agree that it's important to buy a Silgranit sink from a reputable seller, rather than trying to save $40 or whatever. Also, try calling in your order over the phone, and saying something like, "can you do a little better on the price?". They may give you a few dollars discount.

Here is a link that might be useful: Blanco Silgranit Sinks at HomeandStone

I bought mine from Amazon. It was a Warehouse deal so I saved another $75 off their usual low prices. The sink was perfect, but boy I did worry abut cracks until it was installed.

I also bought both of my Silgranit sinks from Amazon. My super single was a warehouse deal for $200. No issues. I checked locally, but they were about $600 for the Super Single at our closest retailer.

Amazon!! Low price, super quick shipment and packed exceptionally well.

Amazon! Best price I found, and arrived in 3 days in perfect condition.

Thanks everyone for weighing in!

Yes, Mrs. that's the one! Thanks for the link. I think I'm in love already! No need for the grid--maybe I'll get one for a double sink and just use it on the left...

Ferguson's price is over 200 more than Amazon...leaning toward Amazon will call around tomorrow.

Does one really need to use a Blanco drain or would a Kohler (or other) work just fine?

Thanks to all again.

Anyone used Plumbing Depot?

RE: Can You Please Recommend a Seller of Silgranit Sinks?

Catkin, you can use whatever standard drain you like. I have disposers in both my Silgranit sinks, with Kohler flanges.

Last year when I bought ours Home Depot online had a good price for that same sink. I bought it there figuring it would be easier to return it if it came damaged. It arrived perfect though.

Thanks everyone for all your thoughtful and prompt replies.

Attofarad that's good to know, I appreciate it.

I've decided to go with Quality Bath. Called them and they've assured me that there would be absolutely no problem with a return should there be an issue with cracking/breakage.
