" My customer wanted a robust kitchen sink, with one and half bowls.
After reading the reviews I ordered this "astracast" one. It is an excellent sink. There is very little flex when using the tap, as there can be with some sinks, so they're pleased and so am I.
I do not hesitate to recommend this sink.

" Great quality looking sink and tap in Stainless Steel. Easy to fit and plumb in which has revitalised a tired looking 15 year old kitchen after a repaint.
The cost was relatively low and the value for money high.
Would recommend to anyone wanting a quick fix solution to an ageing kitchen. "

" Simple concise instructions. Slim design, easy to fit and looks good.
Suggest you purchase a 1.5 bowel waste kit as the one that is supplied does not contain a trap nor does it if fit a standard 40mm trap or solvent pipe. "

" Bought this to replace tired old sink. Managed to fit it quite easily with only the bare minimum of swearing and flooding :-)
Good looking and seems to be good quality. Half the price of a similar one seen elsewhere. Just enough clips provided, would have liked a few more included to be absolutely sure of a really firm attachment to the worktop. "

stainless at its best

" This sink top is a replacement for a single bowl sink that we had and it should have been fitted years ago.Perfect size bowl and the half bowl is ideal for catching vegetable peelings etc.
The waste fittings and traps that come with it are easily fitted thanks to the easy to understand instructions.All in all this sink is well worth the money spent on it.

" I wanted a 1 1/2 bowl stainless steel sink and thought Astracast was a good brand. Screwfix offers this product at very competitive price and delivers next day free. It has a lovely shiny drainer which looks great with a modern crome tap, and shiny strainer type plugs. Drop dead gorgeous!!! "

Good value sink
25 Aug 2015
By Beardy70
, Wimborne
" An excellent product, well made & stiff, and easy to fit once you realise that, despite the documentation saying that it will fit into a 600 wide cupboard, that only applies to the bowls. When fitted into a 600 wide cupboard you need to extend the worktop cut-out by about 25 mm, but this then places the clips over the cupboard side, making them difficult to screw up without the appropriate tools.
Also be aware that, on my sink at least, the twin bowl connecting kit supplied does not fit the basket outlets. Checking against standard plumbing the I/d of the screw connector is non-standard, being slightly smaller than the o/d of the thread on the basket. I was replacing an existing sink so was able to re-use the old pipework, but if carrying out a new installation it would pay to buy a twin-bowl connecting kit just in case. "

" A very good value sink which was perfect for upgrading a kitchen I was working on. Easy to fit. A little more strengthening of the tap whole are would be good, as when fitting a tall heavier tap as shown in picture, the area flexes a bit. "

Great value sink
6 Aug 2014
By Piecrust
, Surrey
" I was replacing my kitchen worktops and wanted to change a single bowl sink for a 1.5 bowl sink, I chose the Astracast Alto because it was good value with positive reviews. I have to say I'm not disappointed, both bowls are a good size and the sink is good quality. You get both waste outlets with basket strainers, all connections to connect both outlets together, so all I needed to buy was an s-trap and taps. Some of the other reviewers have mentioned the hold down clips, as long as you don't over tighten them they are fine. This is a great alternative to an expensive Franke 1.5 bowl sink. Cheers Screwfix! "
