Very happy.
5 Star Review   By Alexy on B&Q - May 5, 2014   

As I didn't need to install this sink myself, I am very pleased with what i got for this price (plumber said that it was more difficult to install this type of sink, though). Sink is massive: can put any pan, pot or all plates which left after dinner - and all fit inside! Yes, you can see water marks on it but to be honest, its not bother me. It looks and works great in my kitchen!

Do not buy
1 Star Review   B&Q   

Looks great from the top, after that its all adownhill. The designers got this wrong. A sharpe edge all the way around which makes sealing very difficult. You get a foam strip to help seal the worktop, this barely protrudes beyond the depth of the sink. I had to grind 5mm off all the clips as when they are fully unscrewed they only just and i mean only just grip the worktop then you cant start the screw back in its thread. Clip access very tight, not enough clips on, could do with an extra one between the waste control and drainer corner as the sink will not sit flat here. I left more worktop than the pictures show to cut out, i am glad i did as the holes for the tap and waste control end up being 3/4 holes so only just able to tighten down, if i had done per instructions there would be 1/2 a hole in worktop to hold both. Waste control is bot long enough for a 40mm worktop ( which most folks have ). I had to turn the nut upside down to start the threads. Very disappointed in this sink seeing as it a Cooke & Lewis one as well. My advice is do not buy unless you want problems. I am dreading water getting to my worktop now.

Don't bother with this sink
2 Star Review   By Jamie32 on B&Q - Oct 11, 2012   

This sink looks great but as other reviewers have pointed out, it will give you nothing but trouble when fitting. We had to fit the sink to the work top and then fit the worktop otherwise you have very limited access to the fixings. The fixing clips won't pull the sink flat against the worktop either. We had to silicone seal the unit and clamp it for a day. Get it wrong and you can say goodbye to your worktop within a few months due to the water penertration from the edge of the sink. You'll also have to cut away most of your kitchen unit and your standard waste trap won't fit. Very very dissapointed. This is a cheap copy of the FRANKE PLANER. Buy the real thing if you can afford to. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Good size Sink
3 Star Review   By Tanimay on B&Q - May 14, 2012   

A nice big sized sink. Love the satin finish. However, it constantly looks dirty, as the water droplet marks stay on the sides and draining board. have to dry sink after every use.

Nightmare to fit
2 Star Review   By oldandgrumpy on B&Q - May 14, 2012   

This sink looks great but is a nightmare to fit into a B&Q 1000mm base unit unless you are aware of the specific needs. I am surprised that it doesn't come with a specific warning that it cannot be fitted centrally in a standard unit without having to rebuild the unit. Also, the waste outlet cannot be connected to an off the shelf trap and you have to buy the manufacturers own outlet.

Sleek, modern and affordable
5 Star Review   By diydaft28 on B&Q - May 10, 2012   

Loved this sink when I first saw it. We put in a new kitchen and it goes great. The sink has a very deep bowl which is great for doing pots and pans. The drainer is simple in design but the slant means all the water drains easily. It was easy to fit, no size problems. Since putting in our kitchen all anyone says is that they love our sink, think that says it all!

Great Sink - Pain to install
3 Star Review   By gizmo55 on B&Q - Apr 28, 2012   

The sink is really spacious and well made - looks really good when fitted - due to it's size it is diffciult to access all the clips for fitting to the worktop. Also the waste control does not suit a 40mm thick worktop - you have to countersink from underneath. As the previous reviewer states the waste fitting is non standard so does not fit the usual waste piping. And as stated do not fit centrally in your kitchen unit as the waste control will be difficult to fit due to the positioning of the centre post. Took twice as long to fit as other sinks I've fitted.

nice looking sink
3 Star Review   By westhamandcheese on B&Q - Mar 6, 2012   

Very large, nice looking sink. Deep enough to accommodate the largest of saucepans. However do not use in a 1000mm base unit as the plug release mechanism sits directly above the unit centre post and is very difficult to to fit without the use of auger bit. Also there is a problem when fitting the waste basket to the trap, there mey be a design fault I had to fit an alternative whilst the manufacturers conduct a root cause. Overall nice sink but has issues.
