Stainless Kitchen sink.. What to get?


Doing some remodeling and am looking for a new kitchen sink. We'll have granite countertops so it'll be an undermount sink. Needs to be a dual bowl.

The wife was looking at this one. http://www.faucetdirect.com/kraus-kb...towel/p1121294
We're trying to stay right around $200. I just want to make sure we get a good sink and I'm not 100% sure exactly what to look for, what brand, guage, etc.

Any help, info, or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Select brand names, the thicker the material the better, which usually is reflected in the price. Avoid high polished sinks, it will not last, but avoid plain factory finish.

I recommend to get 18 ga at the minimum and prefer deeper bowls.

You can also get one that is not so thick and put sound deaden-er On the bottom of it to help with sound issues.

That will help a bit with price.
