Features of 16 gauge kitchen sink KHU100 by Kraus
The 16 gauge kitchen sink KHU100 from Kraus is one of the most successful sinks in its category. It is made of high quality t-304 stainless steel. Its commercial grade satin finish together with the small radius corners and drain grooves makes this sink look beautiful. It gives the impression of an expensive designer sink.
“It looks and feels like a very expensive sink”
This sink is big. The bowl is 10 inches deep which is a sufficient depth for splashes not to come outside. It accommodates a large number of dishes.
The width of 32 inches allows this sink to fit into a 33 inches cabinet. A cutout template is included in the package.
16 gauge kitchen sink KHU100 is shipped with a protective button rack that has protective feet and bumpers. The package includes also a stainless steel basket strainer, dish towel and mounting and installation brackets.
Kraus has secured a better than usual protective packaging. The sink itself comes wrapped in canvas.
What could be better
Some customers would have liked the drain grooves at a little steeper angle because the whole amount of water may not be completely drained when the strainer is used.
About 16 gauge kitchen sinks
16 gauge kitchen sinks are made of thicker steel than 18 gauge ones. This means a more solid feel, better sound insulation and durability. The difference, however, is not that noticeable but 16 gauge ones are just a little bit more popular than 18 gauge ones while the latter size is often the highest figure accepted by many homeowners and plumbers.
