See which sink below is right for you:
Our line of kitchen sinks come in two different materials: stainless steel and granite composite. Some are available as undermount sinks, which are mounted underneath the counter or vanity top, making for an uninterrupted surface between the counter top and the sink.
Our stainless steel sinks come in a variety of configurations, sizes, depths, and styles. All of our stainless steel sinks are manufactured from premium 304 series stainless steel, which is rust-free, scrape-resisting, non-porous, hygienic, and extremely durable. This type of steel has 18% Chromium content, and 8% Nickel content which provide shine and luster in your sink, and prevent corrosion. This is the industry standard for kitchen sinks, and other food and sanitary products.
Stainless steel is very easy to clean, but you need to keep a few things in mind. First.... NEVER use steel wool to clean your Stainless Steel Apron Sink, or Undermount Sink. The steel wool can leave bits of steel embedded in the brushed finish of your sink, and those little threads of steel will rust. Also, do not leave pots or pans in a wet sink for long periods of time. This can cause discoloration in the sink. For regular, everyday cleaning, a towel and soapy water are perfect. For more thorough cleaning, we recommend products such as Barkeeper's Friend, or Bon Ami.
Granite composite sinks are about 80 percent granite and 20 percent acrylic resin. The combination of granite and acrylic makes for an extremely durable material and surface, bringing cutting-edge style to a kitchen, beating out quartz composite for strength and thanks to the high density of granite particles, it offers superior resistance to scratches, chips and heat. Some are calling it the most durable composite sink material on the market, though it's not care-free.
Resistant to scratches, stains, chips and household acids, granite composite looks and feels like natural matte stone. Granite composite sinks will not fade in color when exposed to high heat, and they can accommodate hot pots and pans — resisting heat up to 535 degrees Fahrenheit.
Due to the manufacturing process, granite composite sinks are available only in matte finishes. Since granite is a porous material, these sinks are prone to stains from waterborne minerals, which can dull the finish over time.
Granite composite sinks do not require chemical cleaners, reducing the amount of chemicals that enter our water supply.
While it can stand up to scratches and heat, granite composite does require careful maintenance to keep up its appearance. Wash it daily with a soapy nylon brush in a circular motion to help prevent stains. Dry it with a dishcloth after daily use to help avoid stains from hard-water deposits. Never use abrasive powders or pads on a granite composite sink — they will dull and scratch the surface, making it more susceptible to stains. Many manufacturing companies offer specialized cleaning products that will keep your sink in great condition.
Vitreous china (Porcelain) and fireclay are similar in that they're clay-based ceramics. These materials also make durable sinks with easily cleaned surfaces. They can be chipped or cracked if they're knocked hard enough however.
Choosing the right sink involves more than just finding which one looks good. Sure, you want your sink to project your kitchen or bathroom's style and some sinks, like vessel sinks, can actually be the focal point of the bathroom. But before you make any buying decisions there are a few things to consider.
Whether you're remodeling, building new or just replacing an old sink will determine which direction to take when choosing a new sink. You'll need to be sure the sink you want is compatible with the faucet you currently have or will have, if you'll be buying both.
Other factors like installation type, configuration and material also come into play. Once you understand how to blend them with your own wants and needs, you'll be better equipped to make the right choice.
