Stainless Steel SInks:
A popular option due to their streamlined appearance and affordable prices, which fits many a modern kitchen.
Chip and crack resistant
When buying stainless steel sinks, be mindful of their guage. The lower it is, the thicker the stainless steel is and less likely to dent or make noises when you shift your pots and dishes around. An ideal guage will be 16 or 18.
Easy to clean.
Requires regular maintenance to remove water spots, but avoid using cleaners with chloride as they may cause corrosion. Use non-abrasive cloth or sponge to avoid scratching the sink.
Granite Composite Sinks
Made from a mix of granite stone dust and acrylic resins, composite granite sinks generally cost less than one than is made from natural granite. However, they are more expensive than stainless steel sinks.
Highly durable, due to its non-porous nature and resistance to chips, scratches, stains and heat.
It comes in a wide variety of sizes, colours and styles to suit your kitchen theme. Since the sink is made from composite granite, the colour is generally more uniform and hence lacks the natural beauty of natural granite.
Be mindful when cleaning the sink as harsh chemicals can damage it.
Remember to rinse and wipe the sink after use to avoid a buildup of water marks. As a matter of fact, do not use abrasive cleaners, citrus cleaning products or ammonia as they will corrode the surface of the sink.
