01 Kraus KHU103 Double Bowl Kitchen Sink Overview
This section of our Kraus KHU103 Double Bowl Kitchen Sink review focuses on the technicalities of what makes this kitchen sink so effective and efficient while managing to stay durable and impressive to look at. We will simplify the technicalities as much as possible to make it simple and understandable.
The KHU103 has two bowls that are asymmetric in size. The left sink is 4-inches longer than the other. Both sinks have a length of 17-inches and 10-inches deep. This amount of space is plenty for keeping and washing large cookeries like stockpots. The right can be used for storing or soaking the dishes, as it is smaller, while the left sink is to be used for washing.
This Kraus Undermount Double Bowl Kitchen Sink is also durable. It uses high-quality T-304 grade stainless steel that is very effective at resisting corrosion and dents. The sink is also given a commercial grade satin finish that makes the sink scratch resistant, along with a nice sheen for good looks.
The sink also has a noise canceling system with its NoiseDefend sound-proofing padding and undercoating. Let’s have a quick look at the feature analysis section of our Kraus KHU103 Double Bowl Kitchen Sink review.
03 Feature Analysis
3.1 Asymmetric Bowl Widths and Deep Bowls
The asymmetric widths of the sinks allow the bowls to have a set, varying purpose for each bowl. The bowl on the left is 16.9-inches in width, and the left bowl is 12.9-inches in width. Both bowls are large enough for large cookeries like stockpots to fit inside both bowls. Both bowls are 17-inches long and 10-inches deep.
3.2 Stainless Steel Build
The sink’s body is made up of 16-gauge premium grade T-304 stainless steel construction with an 18/10 nickel/chromium composition. This makes the entire sink highly durable and resistant to corrosion and dents. The body also comes with curved 0.75-inch edges that are much easier for you to clean.
3.3 Satin Finish
The sink is given a commercial-grade satin finish that gives the sink a fine sheen that will not fade away. Meaning that the sink will not lose its sheen, AND it is resistant to scratches. This gives your sink a luxurious look for as long as possible.
3.4 Sound Guard Padding and Undercoating
The sink has a NoiseDefend system that allows the sink to be silent. The paddings and undercoating absorb 80% of the vibrations that are created from using the kitchen sink, making the sink eliminate most of the unwanted sounds that would out when you would use a typical sink without the sound-proofing system.
3.5 Rear-Set Drain Opening
The 3.5-inch drain opening is located further in the back of each of the bowls instead of being placed in the middle. This allows fluids to trickle down the drain without getting blocked by the cookeries if they are placed on top of the drain opening.
