Kraus KHU100-30 Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink Review


A few years back we have brought a kitchen sink for our(KitchenVale) kitchen which was a hyped model. And since the price was a bit high, I thought this one is going to be a good sink that I will be able to use for years. But unfortunately, it turns out I picked the wrong sink. It was labeled that the sink is completely rustproof but rust is what mostly I had to deal with. Doesn’t matter what I do, the rust keeps coming back and the sink started looking ugly.

And then I got to know about the Kraus KHU100-30 Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink. This time I didn’t make the mistake of choosing the wrong sink. Before I purchased, I did little research and have contacted a few users to get the real review. ✌🏻

Since everything was positive so I brought it and for the last 1 year I am using this(Kraus KHU100-30) Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink. And everything is good so far.

Today, I am going to review this very sink and will try to elaborate exactly why you should choose this sink.

If you are looking for a perfect stainless-steel undermount kitchen Sink, undoubtedly you can pick this one. If you want to know why this is the best one, I have demonstrated the features of this sink and the drawbacks as well.

Why Single Bowl Kitchen Sink?

There are two types of kitchen sinks, single bowl, and dual bowl. With a dual bowl, you definitely get more space for the cleaning but they also require big space to be installed. And obviously, compared to the dual bowl, a single bowl kitchen sink requires less space and they are very easy to clean.

Moreover, single bowl kitchen sinks are lightweight and very easy to install. Plus, they are inexpensive as well.

Afterall Kitchenvale always recommend single bowl sink if you don't need double bowl for any specific reason. As we are here to know why this Kraus's model is best let's not waste our time to find out single bowl or double bowl! Instead you can check this article to know which one is best for your kitchen type.

Brand


There is no doubt Kraus is one of the best sink and faucet manufacturer brand since 2007 they founded. Their unique and creative but user-friendly innovation make them the best within a short time.


On Amazon they have many best selling items like this one. They also provide great customer support to their customer.


Although the Kraus brand has global reach, Kraus heart lies in our home base of Port Washington, New York. Kraus is a quality reliable brand so far.

Stainless steel


Stainless steel is one of the most popular material for kitchen sinks and there are a couple of valid reasons for that. Stainless steel sinks are very lightweight and they offer a gentle look. And top of that, they are completely rustproof and scratch-proof, allowing the sink to maintain the new look for quite a long time. And lastly, stainless steels are highly durable as well.


In this Kraus KHU100-30 Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink, the manufacturer has used stainless steel in the construction and made the sink 16-gauge thicker, that is way too thick. And the stainless steel is dent resistant T304 steel which has superior durability and strength.

Design


There is nothing very extraordinary in the design, the design is gentle, just the way sinks are designed. And since this is a stainless steel sink, so there is nothing special in the color as well. But I must tell, the dark steel color of this sink will suit any kitchen. One thing I liked very much about this sink is deepness.


This sink is quite deep which allows you to clean the pots and utensils, pretty easy and there will be a very little splash of water coming on you.

Cleaning


One of the irritating things about kitchen sink is the cleaning, mostly cleaning the corners which are so stubborn. But cleaning this Kraus KHU100-30 Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink is super easy. First of all, the material is stainless steel and then the texture of this sink is pretty smooth which allows you to clean anything on the sink with just a couple of clothing swipes. And cleaning the corners are pretty easy too.

Quiet Sink


The noise during cleaning items in the sink feels so irritating, especially people around you. But with this Kraus KHU100-30 Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink, you are not going to face the issue, thanks to the noise cancelation feature.


The manufacturer has used a technology called Noise to Defend soundproofing technology. And there is also non-toxic undercoating and thicker pads which actually doesn’t the magic of muting everything.

Capacity


The sink is not so big but it is quite deep. Since it is a single bowl kitchen sink, you cannot put a lot of items at once for sure. But the capacity it offers, that is quite perfect for any family kitchen. It comes with good depth which allows you to put the long pots inside and clean them easily. And as mentioned, because of the depth fewer water splashes outside the sink.

Draining


Features superior 3.5-inch drain opening which gives smoother water draining during cleaning. And with the purchase, you will get a 3-piece basket strainer set which is made of top-notch material. With proper cleaning, that is going to last a couple of years with no doubt.

Dish grid


Most of the time it happens, when you unconsciously drop breakable items in the sink and they end up breaking. But with this Kraus KHU100-30 Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink, you are getting a dish grid that is supposed to be placed inside the sink. So if you accidentally drop anything, there is no chance that anything will break, the grid will take care of that.

Pros

  • It comes with greater durability and strength.
  • Constructed with top-notch stainless steel material.
  • Super easy to clean and install.
  • It comes with a 3-part drain strainer set.
  • Features noise cancellation pads for quietness.
  • It comes with a safety dish grid.
  • It offers a great drain opening.

Cons

  • Scratch: Though this Kraus KHU100-30 Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink is labeled as completely scratch-resistant it does take a few scratches.
  • Design: I have mentioned before and saying again, the design of this Kraus KHU100-30 Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink is not so classy. Just the traditional design.

Conclusion


The Kraus KHU100-30 Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink is an incredible kitchen sink for sure. It is durable, comes with a noise cancellation feature and safety grid. Then again, the depth of the sink reduces the water splashing on you. If you ignore the design, then there should not be anything to stop you from getting this piece. And besides that, the price is also on the affordable side.


A lot of users are already using it and so far they are highly satisfied. And I hope you will also be.
