Inset Stainless Steel Sinks

Things to pay attention to when choosing a kitchen sink

If you want to buy a stainless steel kitchen sink in online shop, you need to know its main features and construction peculiarities:

  • Quality of steel. Good stainless steel contains 18% of chrome and 10% of nickel, which is marked as 18/10. This parameter affects resistance to corrosion development.
  • Thickness of steel. Kitchen sinks are usually made from steel with width from 0.4 up to 1.2 millimetre. Thickness affects cost of the product, noisiness and durability. High quality sinks are produced from steel with thickness exceeding 0.6 millimetre.
  • Depth of bowl affects comfort in use.
  • Manufacturing method: stretching or welding. At stretching method sinks are manufactured by impact moulding and pressing, which guarantees seamless product. Welded sinks are those, which are manufactured from several steel sheets.
  • Structure. Manufacturers produce smooth and textured (with relief) sinks; moreover, they may be glossy and matted ones.
  • Supplementary accessories.
  • Installation method. Sink may be inset in the countertop, flushmount on the same level with the countertop, it may be mounted under it or installed instead of the countertop replacing it completely.
