The sink arrived very fast from the east coast (during hurricane Sandy no less). It was well packaged and delivered and showed up in perfect condition. The price was very competitive. We are very happy with it. Thank you

I love my new sink! It looks wonderful in my newly remodeled kitchen. Delivery was quick and effortless!

Great looking sink installed. High quality. I find it stains regularly, but nothing that SoftScrub cannot remove. Would recommend.

I had a wonderful experience working with Quality Bath. 6/18/2012
I had a wonderful experience working with Quality Bath. When I ordered my sink and faucet, the customer service rep worked with me on the phone for over 45 minutes - he asked me a lot of questions to make sure the faucet I was ordering was the correct length for the sink and even though I had already measured, he insisted on measuring again himself (it took him 10 minutes to work up the specs) just to make sure I was getting the correct one (incidentally I would have ordered the wrong one without his interference). I was so impressed that he was that concerned about my order being perfect. We LOVE both the sink and the faucet and were so happy with the price and shipping speed. We have a bathroom renovation coming up in the next year and we will absolutely use Quality Bath to purchase our faucets and fixtures because our customer service experience was so fantastic.
Jill from CT
After researching farm sinks, I knew Rohl was the only way to go. The quality cannot be beat and Quality Bath's price and customer service were phenomenal. The delivery went without a hitch. The product was extremely well packed and there was no chance of damage. I look forward to using Quality Bath again when we renovate our bathrooms.

I LOVE the RC3018! 3/7/2012
I absolutely LOVE the Rohl RC3018 fireclay sink!!!!!! I could not have chosen a more functionable as well as uniquely gorgeous sink. Thank you.

What a beauty 3/6/2012
My new farmsink made my kitchen worth the whole renovations, it was the icing on the cake. My farmsink makes a statement and that is .....look at me, pure and simply. I am so glad I was able to put the farmsink in my kitchen it is the focal point.

Champagne taste on a beer bottle budget 3/6/2012
Thanks to Quality Bath we were able to get the kitchen we dreamed of. We visited local showrooms to be sure of the finish and model of sink and faucet we wanted. Then ordered them from Quality Bath and installed them ourselves. Our Quality Bath sales rep even gave me essential tips on the install - like don't over tighten the garbage disposal ( which I've read has been a common mistake professional plumbers are making). Total savings on just the sink and faucet: $1200. We did hire granite installers to do the counter top. Added the back splash ourselves, under cabinet lighting, and installed a panel front dishwasher. Total budget for a kitchen makeover: $6000. Thank you QB!
Colleen from NY
The sink is beautiful 3/6/2012
The sink is beautiful but it came with no care or installation instructions. No label or tags or anything. I would like some kind of information on how to care for the sink and it would be helpful for my contractor to have guidance on the installation.
Donna from TN
Beautiful sink! 3/6/2012
I have had my Rohl sink for almost a year now and couldn't be happier! It is certainly one of the centerpieces of my kitchen. I baby it, though I probably don't have to be so careful because of its sturdy construction and clean white finish. I just make sure to keep it rinsed and purchased the grate to put in the bottom. My only disappointment was the fact that you had to purchase the extended flange drain that you can ONLY get from Rohl. Mine is the oil rubbed bronze finish and I am on my second one. The finish chips easily and my drain is even protected by the grate in the bottom. Quality Bath immediately sent a replacement after the first drain was chipped so badly but the second one has already begun to chip so Rohl has not addressed the problem. Quality bath is also an excellent company to order from!
Kayling from CA
Very happy 3/6/2012
I'm lucky to have a sink like that. All my friend asking me where I got it from and they want to do the type of work that I did.

the sink arrived in perfect condition 9/27/2011
I was initially hesitant to order such a large item over the internet, and from a store I'd never dealt with before, because one can never be sure the item will arrive as advertised, with no defects. The people I spoke with at Quality Bath before placing the order couldn't have been more helpful. And the sink arrived in perfect condition. We purchased this sink for our lake cottage, and it is the first thing anyone sees on entering the house. Every visitor remarks on its beauty and authenticity to the period the house was built. It even fooled the assessor when she came to reappraise the house - she thought it was original! We love how solid and deep it is - perfect for washing large pots and pans. If we had it to do over again, we'd make the same choice of product and vendor - we were very happy with the quality of both.

I have always liked their Fire Clay sinks. 9/12/2011
I have always liked their Fire Clay sinks. Suggestions- have the sink available for the cabinet maker to use in templating their cabinet detail. They vary in size and shape. It makes a real difference in the final product. Make sure and order the extended flange for the sink, garbage or strainer. I really like the A1461WS-2 as a faucet for that sink.

We absolutely love both of our Rohl Fireclay sinks 9/12/2011
We absolutely love both of our Rohl Fireclay sinks (30 and 18 inch prep). Everyone that comes to our house comments on them and we would recommend them to anyone. We have a single minor disappointment (1 on a scale of 1-10) with the larger sink. As these sinks are handmade, the bottom is not perfectly flat and sloped to the drain, resulting in individual puddles. Again, we realize that is part of the 'charm' of a handmade item. We would not hesitate to purchase another one, and will if we ever remodel another kitchen.
Jen F. from NH
I am not a fan 9/12/2011
I am not sure that you want my feedback as I am rather disappointed in my sink. About a year ago I started to notice cracks in the base. When I contacted you guys I was told it was normal. So I am not a fan. I am more than happy to share my experience with others and I have certainly made my dissatisfaction known to those who ask.
Lynne M. from CA
I love my Rohl sink - it is truly the focal point of our kitchen. 9/12/2011
I love my Rohl sink - it is truly the focal point of our kitchen. After spending months researching we ended up ordering from Quality Bath. Not only was the price the cheapest we found, the service was excellent. (For instance, when we purchased the faucet to go with the sink, the guy on the phone took like 15 minutes to measure out the specs of the sink + faucet to make sure the sizes we'd chosen would fit perfectly, without me even asking. As it turns out we ended up getting a different size based on his recommendation, which has worked out SO much better than what I would have picked on my own.) Would recommend quality bath to anyone ordering fixtures or sinks!!
Brenda M. from MA
Love the look and the usefulness of this sink! 9/12/2011
We purchased our Shaw Original Fireclay Sink about 3 years ago. We have thoroughly enjoyed it. We found it takes a special fitting to install the garbage disposal. Another helpful tip--we purchased the stainless steel rack that fits in the bottom of the sink. That has been really useful in keeping the sink from getting too scarred and in keeping dishes from breaking when accidentally dropped in the sink. Love the look and the usefulness of this sink!
Karen J. from Ma
I love my sink 9/12/2011
I love my sink, which looks beautiful in my 200 year old NE antique home, appropriately with soapstone counters and a wooden 'furniture' sink cabinet . Unfortunately , although I have been unbelievably cautious (rubber mat.and very careful) etc... i have two tiny pin -head sized chips in it...This is very disappointing
Kevin L. from CA
It has been very easy to clean and maintain a like new finish! 9/12/2011
We love our Rohl Fireclay Apron Sink. It is large enough to handle everything, even filling up the wash bucket! Not only is this sink very functional but it is the centerpiece to our kitchen remodel. While I was building the center island I framed the sink to sit as an under mount just below the new granite countertop. This has made cleaning the counter tops a breeze. The front apron sticks out just over 1" and adds a nice finishing touch to the cabinets. We have had Rohl Fireclay Apron Sink for close to 2 years now and have never had any trouble or regrets. It has been very easy to clean and maintain a like new finish!
Paul and Jan R. from SD
This sink is absolutely gorgeous! 9/12/2011
This sink is absolutely gorgeous! Given our location, we weren’t able to see this sink in person, but really wanted a classic farmhouse sink for our kitchen remodel. Quality Bath had a terrific price with free shipping, and the sink arrived within the week. I can’t speak yet for the durability of this fireclay sink, but we did purchase the sink with the protective grid to protect the surface. I’m so glad we took a chance on this sink…and saved several hundred dollars purchasing through Quality Bath!
Bonnie B. from NJ
I just love the sink 9/12/2011
I just love the sink, I have never had any sink in 50 years of marriage that is so easy to keep clean. I just treat it as a dish and wash it done with dish soap and walk away.
John from IN
The sink is extremely durable, no scratches or chips and looks great. 9/12/2011
We purchased the Rohl Shaw Fireclay Apron Sink and have been thrilled. We have 5 people in our family and use a kitchen extensively, especially after the remodel. The sink is extremely durable, no scratches or chips and looks great.
Judy from MD
Everyone admires it. 9/12/2011
We love our sink! Everyone admires it. Be prepared, it is very heavy and will require support and a knowledgeable installer! My contractor was not thrilled with the idea, but was won over when he saw it!
Gary T. from NC
works wonderfully, and looks great 9/12/2011
First off, we had a heck of a time finding a black sink. Whites, coppers, and steels were everywhere, but no black sinks. We put approximately seven long months into searching for our sink, Google this and Google that and any other search engine as well. Untold phone contacts to individuals, stores, warehouses, and manufacturers to find out if there were any possibility of a closeout item which would not be listed. Usually, we were informed that a black sink no longer existed in the style we wanted and, are you sure you wouldn’t like a stainless one instead? When our sink was finally discovered, about two weeks after our initial query, we were informed that it had been found during cleanup in the back of the warehouse under some trash. Well, we didn’t care about that, we were just happy the sink we had envisioned had been found. The sink we have is a Franke, by Villeroy & Boch, gloss black, single bowl, apron sink with an offset center drain. We had it set as an undermount with a greenish Corian counter surface which works wonderfully, and looks great too. We matched it up with a 17-inch high oil rubbed bronze faucet with a pull out spray and matching soap dispenser. The one specific thing we are most positive about is the recommendation that we include the plastic-coated stainless steel grid that fits in the sink. That single accessory has prevented numerous accidents that I know would have resulted in a broken sink. That grid alone has saved us an unbelievable amount of grief.

I praise Quality Bath and Rohl for great delivery and a great product. 9/12/2011
I researched the Rohl sink and I found it to be the best made sink on the market as it is handcrafted. The sink has been installed in our new kitchen for just about a year and it is just fantastic. I also have to say that the service and product from Quality Bath was superb. If anyone has any fears ordering a product, let alone a kitchen sink, over the internet please be assured that the order will be taken care of in a professional quality manor from Quality Bath. The sink arrived in a box that was filled with a custom foam that would not allow breakage. Again I praise Quality Bath and Rohl for great delivery and a great product.

What exactly is fireclay? I keep hearing about fireclay sinks...
Fireclay is a heat resistant clay. It is also resistant to scratches, thermal shock, alkaline and acids.Answered by Aliza
What is a flange and why would I need it?
A flange is a piece of metal (or plastic) that is used to connect and hold the disposal to the sink. When purchasing a fireclay sink to be used with a garbaged disposal you will need to order an extended flange because of the sinks thickness.Answered by Adina
I am looking at the specifications of this sink and it looks like the drain hole is not in the center. Is that on purpose?
Yes, The Shaws Original Fireclay sink features an offset drain. This is for aesthetic reasons and does not interfere with the sinks functionality.Answered by Adina
It says on the site that the dimensions may vary by 2%. How do I install this sink properly if the dimensions may not be accurate?
Because fireclay sinks are hand poured there may be slight size variances in each one. We recommend that you have the sink on hand or shipped to your cabinet maker before ordering and completing your cabinet base.Answered by Adina
What is the warranty on this sink?
Rohl offers a 1 year warranty on manufacturing defects and a 10 years warranty on fading/staining.Answered by Adina
Does this sink include installation instructions?
This sink does not include installation instructions as there is many ways to install it. The sink can be installed as an apron front, flushmount, undermount etc. You will need to make sure to have a support base for the sink due to the sinks weight.Answered by Adina
How would I clean this sink?
Rohl says that you can use any standard household cleaner on this sink. You can also purchase a product from Rohl called Astonish that would be good for the fireclay sink.Answered by Adina
