Product Technologies and Benefits:

  • Premium Grade T-304 Stainless Steel: There are two primary types of stainless steel in the market: T-409 and the higher quality T-304. The difference lies in chromium and nickel contents; T-409 with 11% and .5% respectively, T-304 with 18% and 10%. When added to steel, these two metals prevent oxidation and rust by neutralizing sodium chloride (salt) – a common element in everyday kitchens. While cheaper sinks use T-409, Kraus sinks boast T-304, further lending to the lifetime warranty.
  • Sound Insulated: Sound insulated steel is commonly only thought of in the automobile industry. There, auto manufacturers use spray-on “Stone Guard” insulation to provide for a quieter ride and protect the steel. Borrowing this technology and adding to it, Kraus sinks use Stone Guard insulation, sprayed over rubber sound dampening pads to create a noticeably lower-tone and overall quieter kitchen sink. It also protects your cabinet from underside condensation drips.
  • Heavily Certified: Kraus has gone to great lengths to be able to provide you, the homeowner, the rest-easy satisfaction knowing that your sink is certified and listed by all the major product testing boards in the U.S. and Canada. This means that this sink is deemed safe to use and that it meets all applicable building codes. Certifications and listings include: UPC, cUPC, CSA, IAPMO, ANSI and SCC.

Advantages of Stainless Steel over Enameled Cast Iron or Fireclay:

  • Very durable; will never chip or crack
  • Dishes usually don't break when dropped during dish-washing
  • Due to relative weights, stainless steel is generally much easier (and less expensive) to install
  • Nonporous; resists bacteria
  • Neutral color fits into almost any décor - matches stainless steel appliances

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completed my kitchen The 18" undermount single bowl (18 gauge) made my renovated kitchen stand out. It came wrapped in a beautiful bag and carefully placed in its box. It also had a cloth that I use daily (at the end of the day) to dry the sink. I highly recommended this stainless steel kitchen sink as a bar sink. I am very pleased with the purchase.

Could this sink be installed sideways? in other words so that it was 15L x 18w (overall size)

The Kraus KBU16 is not recommended to be installed in any other way than the way shown. It is possible that it could work but Kraus cannot guarantee it, so choosing to alter installation would be up to the installers discretion.

What is the minimum cabinet size?

The Kraus KBU16's minimum cabinet size is 23".

Can this sink be installed as a drop in?

The Kraus KBU16 can't be installed as a drop in, but the Kraus KTM24 and Kraus KTM25 can be.
