We are extremely happy with this farm sink. I really like the offset drain also. We shopped around for a long time with this type of sink in mind and we found not only the best price but best service through Quality Bath.

If you are not using a garbage disposal then you would need the basket strainer only and if you are going to be using a garbage disposal then you would need a waste disposer trim only.
This sink is finished on all four sides so if you need the drain on the left as opposed to on the right then you can flip the sink around.
It fits with most brands but not with all. It will not fit a Waste King disposal. It will fit the following: 1.) Insinkerator (ISE)- not Evolution 2.) Kenmore (Sears) 3.) Maytag 4.) Ace (Hardware) 5.) JennAir 6.) Whirlpool (select models only) 7.) Kitchen Aid
Yes, Whitehaus offers support bars and we can get them for you. The model number is WHUMSB (set of 2).
No, the grid is a Stainless Steel.
Fireclay sinks may have slight variations in size so we recommend having the sink on site when the counter tops are manufactured or installed.
Fireclay is a thicker material than most standard sinks such as stainless steel and therefore requires extra thick strainers or stoppers. Whitehaus offers these accessories and they are available as an option on this product page.
The drain is offset for aesthetic purposes. An interesting point to keep in mind is that because the drain is offset and the plumbing will be offset underneath the cabinet, you will have a larger open area of cabinet space underneath the sink, next to the plumbing.
Yes this would be a nice fit for a 36" cabinet.
Its not necessary but its highly recommended. It will prevent scratches and help the sink wear better. It can be cleaned with mild soap and water.
The sink grids are made specifically for the sinks. It is not recommended by any manufacturer to use a grid not made for the sink simply because the measurements will not match.
Whitehaus has a 1 year warranty against manufacturing defects. Fireclay sinks also carry a 10-year warranty against fading / staining of the glaze.

Love, love, love my sink. Have no problems with pouring boiling hot water in it as some of the reviews have stated. Do recommend the grate to protect the bottom. No issues with installation. I have had this now for 10 months and zero scratches and I use it everyday and stack it full of dirty dishes and pots and pans.
I absolutely love our sink. Its one large single bowl big enough to give our newborn baths in. It also really completes our kitchen and home with the farmhouse look. We did a kitchen refresh, so we painted the cabinets, retrofited the sink cabinet to fit the farmhouse sink, tiled the counters and backsplash and replaced the crown molding. Counter & Backsplash tile is from Architectural Ceramics in Rockville, MD. The floor was original and we decided not to change it.
I was a tad bit nervous when I ordered this sink online. I wondered if the sink would make it in one piece after being shipped. The sink was not only delivered on time but it was perfect when it arrived! The packing was impressive! Installation of the sink went fairly well with no problems. We were on a tight remodel budget and this sink was a splurge for us. I have no regrets! I love, love, love my sink. It is so spacious. I use a wash tub in the sink to do dishes which leaves the rest of the sink empty for rinsing, etc. The sink has been installed for six months and it is just as beautiful as the day it arrived! The quality of the sink is superior and the price makes it affordable. I highly recommend this Farm Sink!
We purchased this sink for our kitchen renovation. It's perfect! Not only is it beautiful, but the functionality is on point. This sink is large enough and deep enough to hold the biggest of platters and pots.
We purchased a house about 3 months ago and did a complete remodel of the kitchen including blowing out a wall and expanding it by 100 sq ft. My wife and I were on the fence about buying a farmhouse sink simply because of the price compared to a traditional sink. We were also hesitant about not having two basins. My mother in law gave us a chunk of money to buy a "significant purchase for the house" which we immediately used to get the sink. We LOVE the sink. It is beautiful! A couple of things to consider when you get it: Make sure you purchase the special drain flange if you are using a garbage disposal. The bottom of the sink is thicker than a usual sink. It cost a lot but you have to have it. Also, this sink is a lot deeper than a usual sink. Think it through when you are designing your cabinet height and where the top of the sink will land. We were going to undermount the sink, but when we mocked it up we found that it made us lean over too much to reach the bottom and would make washing dishes really difficult. So we mounted it with about one inch sticking up above the counter which turned out really nice.
This sink is awesome. It's like washing your dishes in a bathtub. Everyone who comes into our new kitchen mentions how much they like our sink. It came extremely well packaged. This is a great deal - it looks just as good as sinks that cost twice as much. I would recommend getting the bottom grate to protect from scuffs. The grate also allows for water to drain below your dishes.
What a beautiful sink. I love it.
What can I say?! You haven't heard from me because I've had absolutely no issues regarding my new sink. From the purchase to shipping to installation and now using it in my new kitchen. It's wonderful! It was a major improvement over the cast iron builder-grade sink that came with our house. Since we completed our remodel just a couple of months ago, all of our family members have commented on how nice is is to have this nice deep sink. Guests have commented on how beautiful it is. http://pinterest.com/pin/15058979974612366/ The only issue we had (if you can call it an issue) was the depth of drain that required my contractor to have to purchase a different drain basket (part that attaches to the dissposal) because he assumed it was a standard size. I guess the issue was that he didn't check. It's apparently deeper than the standard size that he was used to. As I am a kitchen designer, I created the installation plans that were also outside of my contractors past experience. We installed it without a base cabinet. I instructed him to build a structure to support the sink that is hidden behind a fabric skirt because I wanted a vintage farmhouse look. I doubt there were any cost savings in doing it this way because of the additional labor it took, though the results were fabulous and just as I had imagined. An added bonus was the additional space below the sink for storage. This would not have been so if I had used a cabinet because the sink is so deep.
My wife and I purchased this sink for a new house we built, as we really wanted a nice farmhouse sink, but we didn't want to break the bank. Well, this one fits the bill. We have been very pleased with this sink and I would highly recommend it. I love the farmhouse sink because of its huge single bowl as opposed to two small bowls in a normal sink. It makes washing dishes so much easier and I actually enjoy washing what doesn't go in the dishwasher now! Two comments, I like the offset drain so you can work on one side and not cover the drain, and I highly recommend the grate for the bottom to protect the sink if you drop a pot or something. It's also doubly nice as it keeps everything raised up so that water is always able to drain easily at the bottom. Two thumbs up!
A great nag for your buck....Durable and great looking...Also, larger than most farm house sinks on the market. LOVE IT!
I was a little skeptical when my wife wanted a farmhouse style sink, since I was going to go with the stainless steel dual bowl. I would like to say that I am extremely happy that I did not go with the stainless sink. This is the perfect sink. Beautiful, deep, and the functionality was exceptional. Everyone that comes over comments on it. Great for filling and cleaning large pots. I will recommend a couple of things. make sure you get a faucet with a sprayer built in or added in. since it is mostly flat, rinsing with a sprayer is pretty essential.also make sure you get the grate to protect the bottom. I believe that is an automatic option, but if not, definitely get it. One last thing about Quality Bath. I shopped around online quite a bit and they had the best price, customer service was fantastic and it was packaged very well. I will ABSOLUTELY order from Quality Bath again.
The sink looks good in my kitchen. A small problems though. The sink requires the 'deep' drain flange, which was contadictory to what the Whitehaus rep told me. Also, it was back orderd adding an extra 4 weeks to the delivery time but at the price I paid it was ok to wait.
My parent bought a Rohl and I thought it was nice but I actually like our Whitehaus better. It looks great in our kitchen, the surface seems totally durable and so far no complaints. I like the styling of the sink, it is a little more modern but still timeless. The only part I dont like is the stainless protective base which could be a little better made but no actual problems so far.
This is a nice sink. It looks very beautiful in my kitchen and so far I am very happy with it. It is priced great for a farm sink. I actually had two Rohl farm sinks in our last home, one for the kitchen and one for the laundry room. Which I also purchased from Quality Bath. I purchased the Whitehaus sink this time because of the price. We are on a tighter budget this time, so I was willing to sacrifice a little bit to be able to have a farm sink. After having a farm sink, I knew I really wanted one again. Even if it wasn't a Rohls. The Rohl sink had thicker rims and round bottom front corners which to me looks nicer, but not twice the price nicer. So its just a matter of personal taste and/or price. There is nothing wrong with this sink. And I love Quality Bath. They have the best prices anywhere and their customer service is Awesome. My husband has been a plumbing contractor for 30 years and he couldn't get the plumbing fixtures that Quality Bath carries for less from his plumbing supply house. I had gotten a quote from them and they could not even come close to this price. You can't go wrong with Quality Bath, they are the Best.
Our sink was installed last summer and has been an absolute joy. We did it as part of a complete kitchen remodel and as part of that built a cabinet to hold it. Our carpenter noted that, just as it warns, it's not absolutely symmetrical so you really need to decide placement and measure carefully before installation. Arrived promptly and very well packed. We have a colonial-style kitchen and the look is perfect. On a practical level, the large size (single sink) is wonderful, it holds the largest pots, cookie sheets or frying pans with their handles - flat - much easier to clean. The sink itself is extremely easy to clean just using soap as if it were another dish. We bought both the custom drain plug and the metal grid that fits over the entire bottom of the sink with a hole for the drain. The grid is absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend it - we bought it just to protect the sink from being marked up by pans but discovered that it also restores the only advantage a two-sink system had, which is the ability to pour soapy water down the drain without swirling it all over the just-washed dishes. With the grid, the water just flows under them - sort of two sinks horizontally instead of vertically! The drain, on the other hand, was pretty useless and frustrating and I simply bought one of those commercial sink drain-strainers and put it in - works fine. I did read on the web concerns about this type of sink cracking with over-tightening of the flange (we asked the plumber to do it by hand) or with boiling water poured directly into a cold sink (we are careful to either run the hot water first to warm up the sink or to pour pasta water into a dishpan rather than directly into the sink). So far so good, it looks great. I also saw concerns on the web about this type of sink not draining well - ours drains liquids easily and completely but because of the size,solids that might be in the water don't always make it all the way to the drain (ours is asymmetrical). Not a big deal. Overall we absolutely love it - one of the best buys we ever made. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars only because we've had it for about a year - not long enough to know how it will hold up over time.
I am so very pleased with my Whitehaus farmhouse sink! I was worried about it arriving unbroken but no problem since it had been packed so well. It was a little difficult installing since the old cabinet need to be retrofitted to accommodate it but, it was totally worth it. I researched these type of sinks for several months before purchasing the Whitehaus. They can be a bit expensive but Quality Bath had a great price. It looks gorgeous in my kitchen and everyone comments on it.
We were really impressed with your packaging. Never seen this or any other kind of product so well packed to illuminate any chance of damage. Simply amazing! AND yes we loooove the sink! A note to future purchasers: Make sure you allow for some flexibility in your preinstall setting before you install the sink. Not all sinks like this is specific to the dimensions. For us the top was slightly wider than the bottom, so we had to make small custom install changes to fit the sink in perfectly.
We really are enjoying our sink…it’s beautiful all the time, even when it has dishes in it! It is a single farmhouse sink, and I will never have “2 sinks” (divided) again!
I installed the new Whitehaus kitchen sink today that I bought from you last month. First let me say how impressed I was with the method of packing that you used to protect the sink during shipment. I can't remember ever receiving an item so well packaged. I was very happy with the quality of the finish on the sink as well. But the most important test came when my customer walked into the house, the look on her face was priceless, she could not quit smiling. This was my first purchase from you but I am sure that it won't be my last. Thanks so much.
I first purchased a Whitehaus apron front sink for our summer house in Maine; we did a complete kitchen remodel of an 1840's federal style farmhouse and wanted a very traditional look for the kitchen and the apron from sink was perfect. The large size was a good scale for our design and was a great companion to the black slate counter tops. When we decided to remodel the kitchen in our winter home in coastal NC we wanted a large single bowl sink with the added requirement of an offset drain so we could add a slide out trash can under one side. The choices are very limited with those requirements and we didn't want stainless steel in our, again, very traditional kitchen. Even though we did not expose the front of the sink this time, the large single bowl sink worked out well, the quality is first rate and the service/shipping was more than satisfactory. The only complaint was that per our cabinet builder we ordered the undermount support bars and found them to be very cheaply made closet rod looking pieces with lightweight stamped metal end brackets. It turned out we didn't need them after all and I was happy to be able to return them. If there had been a photo of them on your website instead of just a description I would never have ordered them. In terms of advice I would caution that if the sink is undermounted the space underneath will be limited and in order to have an undermounted trash pull-out some creative design is needed. The standard bottom mounted Hafele models that would fit the 17" we had to work with would only take a powder room sized mini-trash can so we found a larger foot print but shorter trash can at an industrial supply house and had the cabinet builder adapt a side mount pull out mechanism for us. We have the capacity of a standard tall kitchen can in a lower profile but fatter unit. It takes a bit more of a bend over to pull it out but it works fine and holds a generous amount of trash. It can seem like a gamble when shopping via the internet but our experience with Quality Bath was great and I'll certainly keep you on my list of places to check when I'm shopping for fixtures and accessories.
