When considering the purchase of fixtures for the kitchen, the kitchen sink should receive the same degree of perusal as other fixtures such as cabinets. After all, few fixtures in the kitchen are as “busy”, or suffer the degree of abuse, wear, and tear as the kitchen sink. For this reason, the Kraus KHU100-32 will definitely fit the bill, without costing a fortune.
It is not necessary to spend thousands of dollars on beautiful, showroom-quality sinks in order to have the durability, craftsmanship, design, functionality, and beauty of such sinks. The Kraus KHU100-32 supplies all of these features for less than $500!
Constructed of 16-gauge stainless steel, the Kraus KHU100-32 has a beautiful finish that is scratch-resistant with a very pretty satin finish that is of commercial grade. The care taken by the manufacturer, in shipping this sink, is evident when the care taken in packing the sink is noted. The sink is wrapped in a heavy burlap material, then placed in a heavy carton and all space in between is stuffed with plenty of padding to insure that the sink will arrive to its destination in the same beautiful condition as when it left the shipper.
The extra-deep bowl of the sink (18 inches) is more than enough room to accommodate washing anything from a bushel of fresh produce, to that large, odd-sized roaster pan that was so very awkward to try to clean in a smaller sink.
The Kraus KHU100-32 is thoroughly coated on its underside with thick, foam insulation that not only makes sure that a sink full of hot water remains hot longer, but also absorbs the noisy clatter that can happen when using other sink brands. Even better, owners of the Kraus KHU100-32 sink do not have to worry about the sinks finish becoming chipped, cracked, or broken as can happen with enamel-coated sinks.
Some sinks with large capacities have square corners that are often popular gathering places for “gunk” and associated bacteria. The Kraus KHU100-32 provides the large capacity, but with rounded corners that will not hold “kitchen gunk” but make it easy to wash away and leave sparkling clean.
Another feature that merits mention is the fact that this lovely sink arrives with a couple of accessories: A grid and a towel. Why the grid? Because as beautiful and durable as the Kraus KHU100-32 is, the grid is added protection for the bottom of the sink, helping it to keep its shiny, scratch-free finish for even longer than its limited lifetime warranty!
Why the dish towel? Because Kraus knows that you could have opted for a much pricier sink, even though the differences between the Kraus KHU100-32 and its expensive counterparts are miniscule. So, Krause includes a dish towel as a gift, as well as a friendly reminder that a quick-wipe down with a dish towel is often the only cleaning that this sink will require.
On a final note, it should be added that, if a garbage disposal is going to be used with the Kraus KHU100-32 sink, then the Garbage Disposal Flange and Stopper Kit must be purchased separately, as they are not included with the purchase of the sink alone.
