Review

[P] Unlike other stainless steel sinks, the Vault can be installed as a top-mount or undermount sink, which means that it can be placed into a wider variety of countertops than other styles can. The Vault includes a bottom bowl rack, which you typically would have to pay at least $200 more to purchase in a stainless steel sink. This model also has a low center divider, which is a rare feature that allows you to more easily fit oversize pots and pans in the sink.

Note:  For purposes of this presentation, details provided apply to model named above photo area and not necessarily to models occasionally mentioned as being “also a Best Buy.”

Best Buys in kitchen sinks were selected based on quality of construction and the variety of bowl sizes and configurations.

All Best Buys are for a series of models. We focused on top-mount, 33-inch-wide models that have two equal-size basins for comparison, because we found that to be the most widely available configuration.

All Best Buy sinks have a lifetime warranty.

Best Price is a reflection of the lowest retail price that was available at press time and is subject to change.
