If you really think of it, it's really not one of those "too good to be true". The price for Ticor sinks are reasonably priced. As comparing to brand names, well... it's the same with everything else. You pay a whole lot more for the "brand".... a whoooole lot more!
Years ago, US brand names meant that

Okay, all this gauge talk confuses many people. Here's the quick and simple answer:
"The lower the number, the better."
The reasoning comes from how they make the stainless steel thickness. The gauge number refers to the number of times they've forced the stainless steel sheet to go through a narrow gap. Each subsequent gap is smaller.
Therefore, an 18 gauge stainless steel sheet has gone through 18 gauges. Makes sense, right?

Kitchen Undermount Sink
Undermount sinks are known for being located underneath the countertops, as opposed to topmount sinks.
Undermount kitchen sinks are sleek and very gorgeous. Kitchen sinks that are undermount below the countertop are perfect for any kind of granite, marble, solid surface or even engineered stone countertops. A granite undermount kitchen sink is what I personally have in my own home.
Installed correctly, they last a lifetime and really add to a kitchen's overall look and style.
