    Pam, do you install instructions for you 60 or 66 inch double sink?
    A client is trying to fit the sink to a new series of cabinets in the kitchen. Is there a spec sheet available?

    I am very interested in buying one of these sinks but I cannot find
    any review on long term use. I don’t want to spend this kind of money to have to replace it in a couple of years. Anyone know of somebody that owns one of these?

  3. Jackie says:

    I like the look of these drainboard sinks but my husband thinks the material (acrylic) would act and look like our old basement washtub. I have read all the good aspects of these sinks, does anyone have a critical comment or critique so broaden the information? How does it compare to Breckenridge acrylic sinks sold at Home Depot–these are panned because the sinks scratch easily and lose their finish within a couple of weeks. Several customers just hated them and took them out. How about the vibration when using a disposal–does the sink leak around the stainless steel. thanks for any feedback

    My house has newer (1970s) kitchen cabinets we plan to paint (the original 1950 cabinets are hanging in the garage). I lust after one of these drainboard sinks, but couldn’t figure out how to use it, until I saw Pam’s reposting of the 2010 pink kitchen post, which shows some sort of chrome piece that spans the gap between the drainboard sink and the countertop. Now how to figure out where to get that!

    1. pam kueber says:

      Why don’t you ask Ken of NBI Drainboard Sinks if he can recommend a solution? If he finds one for you — he could market it to sell more sinks! Win-win! He is a great guy!

  5. Sammy says:

    These will not work if you are keeping your original vintage cabinets. Most cabinets made prior to late 50s are shallow ( from 20 – 22 inches ). These sinks require a cabinet of at least 24 inches to be installed within the counter top. Make sure to measure the depth of your counter top before you order this. I wanted to use one of these sinks but it was not an option unless I rebuilt my lower cabinets. I ended up installing an Apron sink that fit and looks good. If you can install one of these go for it they are great .

    1. pam kueber says:

      It is not true to say these will not work on original vintage cabinets. My vintage cabinets [steel Geneva’s] are 24″ deep. It may be that other pre-war cabinets are also that deep.

      Yes, measure first!

    2. Heart says:

      While it’s true Sammy that the older cabinets are shallower, I have a 24″ counter top that overhangs the lowers by 2″ & it works out well. The lower cabinets can also be shimmed out from behind for a more flush look. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. 😀 <3

  6. Shirley says:

    We have this sink except ours is bigger and deeper. It is original not a reproduction. Not sure where we are going to use it, it is to big to use in a little cottage that we are redoing that was built in 1945. We might use it in the laundry room. It is cast iron and weighs a ton.

    1. Heart says:

      Lucky YOU! If you ever change your mind & want to get rid of that ‘big old heavy thing’… lol (kidding) I’m sure it will look great in you 1945 restoration. Originals are the Best!

      The rest of us are happy to have these great options in old sink styles available. Thanks Pam.

    1. Heart says:

      Blessed indeed Lee!

      I think shipping would make these ‘cost prohibitive’ if they were re-made out of cast iron/porcelain. This is a Great option for those of us who want the old look of a vintage kitchen. Thanks for the source Pam.

  7. Maggie says:

    no yellow! I have a double brain board sink. In yellow ro match my Chambers range. So still considering re-porcelaining it. Who no mid mid colors?

    1. Robin, NV says:

      That was my thought exactly Tami – more colors! One of the catalogs Pam posted a couple of years ago included a sink in “Melon.” I’ve been looking for that color ever since. Must be a real rarity.

      Pam – didn’t there used to be a link to your catalog collection?
