Stainless double bowl sink with low divide

Elkay Aqua Divide looks perfect for my needs, but it is so expensive! Other brands of stainless undermount double bowl sinks with the LOW DIVIDE? Thanks!

Kohler vault.

I'm not sure how much the Elkay costs so I don't know how the Kohler compares. Don't go by the prices on their website, though; those are always higher than retail for some reason.

Decide if you want the drains in the center or offset to the rear. The low divide is terrific but they don't all have drains at the rear.

I saw one on the HD website too, Vigo I think.

I like the Elkay and the one on Mrdirect int, I like the rounded sides in contrast to the sharp corners on the Kohler. Who actually MAKES the one on Mrdirect int? Can someone please explain to me how that sink is <$200 whereas the Elkay ones are much much more? Do the Elkay ones wash the dishes for you??

Also, I've only ever had drains in the center, what is the advantage of having them offset? Thanks.

The advantage of offset drains is that there is potentially more room for big items under the sink, since the pipes are further back. Also some people say that big pots in the sink don't block the drain if they're offset, but I haven't noticed much difference when I've washed dishes in sinks with centered vs offset drains. I have the Kohler and I like having the extra room underneath, but I don't think it's a make-or-break. The square angles do tend to collect gunk if you don't make a point of wiping them down. (The other reason I have that one is that it looks nice topmounted.)
