Decent sink
24 Sep 2014
By mameha
, south east
" Sink looks decent. Quality seems OK.
I didn't fit it myself but it seemed to install easily enough.
It has quite a small sink bowl volume and large drainage board. This would suit someone who doesn't have a dishwasher and needs a lot of space for drainage.
Ideally I would prefer a smaller drainage board but this was not possible as I was replacing an old plastic sink and had to stick to the same dimensions.
(Actually I wanted a white ceramic sink but they are very heavy and therefore not stocked well and hard to source in the right size. White ceramic sink looks infinitely better in my opinion, and doesn't have the problem with color fade that the modern black sinks have) "

Best sink for price
28 Jul 2014
By Rossa
, Essex
" Needed a new sink, looked at other DIY stores' offers and deals on s/s sinks, this was by far the best on offer and it looks great, it has a nice large draining area and the sink is more than deep enough for family use. Best buy for a long time. "

Excellent value for money
4 Jul 2014
By KenS
, Newport Shropshire
" This is a good quality item that is sturdy enough for everyday use and looks good when fitted. The sink came with a warranty card that implied a 5 year warranty for stainless steel sinks. After a phone call to Screwfix and some investigation by them they have confirmed that the sink does carry a 10 year warranty.
I like the drain system in the drainer, makes rinsing a breeze.
Have only given a 3 for reliability as it has only just been fitted.

Nice job
28 Jul 2015
By Athlone

" Good looking sink and fairly easy to install. Instructions are to cut full size opening but a bowl only opening could be used as long as pockets were cut out to accommodate the fixing clips around the drainer. If fitting across a divided unit there needs to be clearance for the flex waste pipe form the drainer too. Fixing clips are quite fiddly and easily fall off if caught on worktop edge while lowering unit into position. "

Great product!
15 Jun 2013
By Rupz007

" I bought this as an intermediate replacement for our worn kitchen sink before we extend the kitchen and it has been great! It comes with all the necessary fittings including the small drain pipe and for this amount of money its the cheapest on the market.
The steel is made of strong build which is not flimsy or bendy like others and to have 10yrs guarantee is excellent. recommended! "

Looks good, hard to keep clean
15 Jun 2013
By Daveyboyblue
, Hertfordshire
" Sink was fairly easy to fit, the foam sealant should have been sticky on one side, but this was not, so a bit of messing about with glue.
The sink itself does look good, however is a lot thinner than the one it replaced and with all sinks with this look Chrome, very hard to keep clean, water marks and easy to scratch.

Misleading
9 Jun 2013
By SJMPlumb
, Chorley
" Reasonable, good value sink but beware the pack contents list.
It lists the basket waste, overflow and waste kit as three separate items but the only waste kit is the overflow pipe! When you attach the word "kit" to the word "waste" you're talking about the pipework that attaches to the waste.
If you put "waste kit" into the screwfix search, it comes up with pipe work including the trap.
Surely the words "waste kit" shouldn't mean 2 different things depending on where on the site you see them!
