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.

The clips will probably be easily removed with a screwdriver. You may be able to peel the sink away from the caulk with gentle pressure, but a plastic scraper can speed that process along. If you’re using the same countertop, be extra careful not to damage it as you remove the sink.

But it is not advisable to buy cheap stainless steel sinks as they would be made of very thin material and would not be durable. Moreover cheaper stainless steel sinks would get scratches on them easily. A good quality stainless steel sink would be easy to clean and won’t get scratched easily. It is better not to get the mirror type stainless steel sinks. Frequent use will scratch its surface and the shiny new look will become a foggy dirty look. Also do check if there is insulation under the sink bowl. Insulation tends to minimize the noise created by water drumming.

One of the first things you will see, besides size of course, is Gauge. The Gauge of stainless steel measures the thickness of the steel itself that was used to create the sink. Usually you will see a number between 16 and 23. In most circumstances a higher number indicates a higher quality or larger measurement, but Gauge is like Golf, the lower the number the better. I personally recommend a 16 or 18 gauge sink, especially if you are doing an apron front sink or a zero radius stainless steel sink. Anything higher than that, while it may be cheaper, is much more likely to dent or crease, especially when your belt buckle hits the front of a stainless farm sink while you are doing dishes. 18 gauge stainless steel is 0.0500 inches thick and weighs 2.016 pounds per square foot, and 16 gauge stainless steel is 0.0625 inches thick and weighs 2.52 pounds per square foot. While that may not seem like much, that is actually a 25% increase in both thickness and weight, making 16 gauge a considerably more durable and sturdier sink.
