I'm thinking of ordering this sink and faucet from TB, also maybe a matching shower set for my common toilet.

What do you think of the price and seller reputation? Sorry ah, I try very hard to understand the percentage thingy, but still Pte Ltd.

Also, I am curious, how do you all know which shower system is good or suitable? It seems to me that all looks the same.

What is the determine factor, beside budget?

Lastly, since sink and faucet both can be purchase online, anybody purchase toilet bowl before? :unsure:

I not that good with TB. Did tried to buy some stuff but still prefer Amazon.

The gold sink looks good! But hor... the seller did not sell any for the last 30 days. I will avoid if possible.

The faucet and shower set got sales for the past 30 days but I would get a reliable brand to save on headache if they start to leak. Because it is not that easy to replace, unless of course your Kim is a handyman.. :notti::notti:

U can try post in the below thread for better response to your TB question.

Hi Kim76, do you have both the oxo good grips salad spinner small and oxo good grips salad spinner(Large?). I was thinking of purchasing the small one for ease of use when washing it in the sink. If possible could you post a picture of both of them side by side for size comparison(also maybe place a common item such as an iPhone etc for scale)? Thank you so much!

Oh... Another thread for me to read.. another 13pages :blink: Will be my bedtime reading then.

To all the Kraus User Guru, my ID asked me if the sink comes with bottle trap and waste? I got no idea what is that, anyone knows? :help:

To prevent me from :curse: , i decided to buy a reputable shower system. Any recommendation?

HI inxlee,

I have the large one. It is quite big and if u are not making salad for 4 persons or more, I suggest u to buy the smaller one.

I'm preparing for a trip overseas tomorrow so I do not have the time to take photo. Maybe I try to take the large one when I back?

Remind me... :P:P

And also did u look at the thread on kitchen sink?

Good shower system will be either Grohe or Hansgrohe. Pain one time but at least you can sleep peacefully....

Mrs Ng...I went a different route and got these italian designed ones from Equip-bathroom in Singapore Shopping Centre. Managed to haggle a 40% discount too. Decided to listen to the wise gurus here and spend a bit more...and have the peace of mind

Le Creuset 4 Piece Cast Iron Cookware Gift Set

Going at US$180.10. 43% off. Good buy.

http://www.amazon.com/Le-Creuset-Cast-Iron-Cookware/dp/B009HL3H2Q/ref=sr_1_236?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1374557679&sr=1-236&keywords=le+creuset

It is so lovely but I can't figure why this one is in 11 inches. Always thought they only came in even configurations for the round ones. Maybe I am wrong or the US has different sizes.

I love Le Crueset. There was quite a good promo recently. If u buy 5 pieces, 50% off all of them, 4 and 40 % off so on so forth. I normally buy them when I go to the outlet stores overseas because it is so much cheaper then I will sea mail back. Haha. Give it a shot. :good:

Yes, that is true. But u can buy the ramekins and cocottes etc to make up the 5 pieces. Haha.

Is there free shipping for this one? Should be?
