New KOHLER stainless steel kitchen sinks provides great value with unique, spacious designs and customized accessories

KOHLER, Wis. – April 24, 2012 – At the 2012 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Chicago, Kohler Co. launches the Octave double-equal and large/medium kitchen sinks made of premium Kohler stainless steel.

“Octave’s larger basin space and included accessories add a lot of functionality to the sink,” says Adam Horwitz, director for kitchen products at Kohler. “This sink bundle takes the guesswork out of purchasing accessories. It provides a high-quality product that looks amazing and will last for many years at a truly great price.”

The unique shape of the double bowls curving back around the faucet is not just a fresh take on the traditional design, it creates a more spacious sink. Combined with a depth of 9 inches, the sink easily accommodates large pots and pans and minimizes splashing. The space benefits gained from this innovative design are substantial.

“The Octave sinks features new bowl shapes that Kohler developed and designed as a result of market research,” says Horwitz. “We learned consumers like basin shapes that differ from the norm, enhance aesthetics, and above all, create more space. There’s also great demand for accessories custom-designed to fit the sink.”

These ideas have been incorporated in the product: each Octave top-mount or undermount sink includes one or two basin racks, a sponge caddy that fits snuggly over the sink saddle, as well as a bottle of KOHLER stainless steel cleaner.

The Octave kitchen sinks are available in both top-mount or undercounter installation models. The sinks are constructed of 18-gauge stainless steel and feature SilentShield® sound deadening technology to reduce the noise from the garbage disposal or dishes that touch the sink surface.

The accessories bundle includes:

Stainless steel bottom basin racks prevent scratches on the sink's surface and allow the sink to drain while items are placed in the basin. Innovative wheels positioned on the side of the rack instead of feet make for a tight fit to provide stability and eliminate debris build-up. They are removable, dishwasher-safe, and replaceable. The top-mount sinks includes one basin rack, the undercounter models two.

• A stainless steel sponge caddy that sits securely on the saddle of the sink to keep sponges, brushes and other cleaning tools in easy reach.

• 11.5-ounce bottle of KOHLER Stainless Steel Cleaner, which effectively cleans and polishes to make the sink look newer, longer.

MSRP: Top-mount $427; undercounter $800.
