We LOVE our new sink. It was well protected in shipping by it's own "blanket" bag and came packaged in a very thick, reusable box. (We are using the box and separate lid to store our winter cover for our pontoon.) The finish is beautiful and very easy to clean. The wire racks for both sides were a wonderful surprise... and packaged with MANY extra "little feet" should the originals wear out. I've been using the soft Barkeeper's friend to clean the sink. This works perfectly. We make homemade pizzas and cut the pizzas on quite large pieces of plexiglass. This sink is deep enough to wash the plexi glass pieces. I would highly recommend this sink! You won't be disappointed.
