Sinks. Friday , October 13th , 2017 - 14:48:22 PM
Probably the first decision most buyers make is to determine whether they prefer a single well or a double well. These are the two main configurations. Triple well models are also available, along with specialty styles like trough sinks and integrated drain-board sinks. A single well is great for those who regularly prepare large turkeys, host dinner parties or like to preserve food for the winter. A single well is also handy for washing small dogs and bathing grubby babies. Double well sinks serve two cook families and those who like to multi-task, rinsing vegetables for the salad in one well, while cleaning up in the other well.
The number and size of the basins in your sink are probably the first consideration you’ll have. Dual-basin sinks are the most common, featuring two sides with the faucet in between. Farmhouse sinks, with one large basin, are also a popular choice, especially for country-style homes. Models are also available with basins of different sizes, such as a small one for washing vegetables.
Information about stainless kitchen sinks is not hard to find, but sometimes it is hard to understand with numbers, alloys and percentages floating around in the product descriptions. It may look complicated but in reality, almost all stainless steel sinks are fabricated from Type 304 stainless steel. This is the basic form of stainless steel and what this number signifies is that this steel contains a minimum of 18% chromium, 8% nickel and a maximum of.08% carbon. This is why you will also see the number 18-8 steel listed in the specifications sometimes, they are simply referring to the percentages of chromium and nickel blended with the steel to make it stronger. As you probably know, steel is susceptible to rust, but by blending in these other elements it makes the steel corrosion resistant as well as sturdier. A higher percentage of chromium and nickel in the steel indicates a higher grade of stainless steel so look for the 18-8 or even 20-10 numbers somewhere in the information so you can rest easy knowing your stainless sink is high quality. While stainless steel sinks are not very susceptible to rust, they can be stained by rust, so be careful of leaving a cast iron pan sitting in a sink too long.
