It's a Rohl Fireclay single compartment sink. It and the mounting brackets were about $700. Fireclay is suppose to be nearly indestructible and resists chipping like enameled cast iron does.
I can attest to the fact that it is much lighter. I was able to set the sink in place alone.
Delivery was free from Allmodern.com.
The old sink was a top mounted sink that came with the house that we had been using for the last two years.
Since the cabinet top was cut out for the old sink, I had to butcher the cabinet to mount the new sink. It doesn't matter though since it will be covered by the countertops.

Anyway, the installers finally showed up this afternoon as the weather was turning wretchedly cold and windy. In about an hour they had the tops installed and polished. I can't say that I'm over the moon with the install. I've seen some discolorations that I'm not happy about.
They use a very acrid epoxy to join the seams with and it gave me a headache and stunk up the house for a long while.
It is nice to have some counters finally and we are happy about that.
The granite plus installation was about $1200.
Grohe Concetto, which is a German mfg. but the product is made in Canada.
The faucet was about $300.
It's very nice quality and has a retractable spray head in the nozzle.
We opted to go with the deepest sink we could find which is 10".
I use a lot of big pots and pans and a two compartment sink is a real hindrance when trying to wash them out. Hopefully this large sink will meet our needs a little better than the old sink.
Next up...tiling the backsplash. Whoopee!
