Great sink. Looks good and it is practical!
on January 17, 2012
I only recently even heard of composite granite sinks, when looking to replace my 20-year old "builder quality" stainless. We also replaced counters, so this is installed under the counters. I wouldn't have expected it, but visitors say "Wow!" when they see the sink. Wow to a sink! How about that?
Functionality. Double sinks are pretty much an anachronism these days. What I really wanted was a sink big enough to hold a cookie sheet or griddle. This does. The small ledge is perfect for draining washed vegetables, or you can put a suspended dish drainer over it and still have a big sink.
Cautions. The sink is really deep, which I like, and we had it installed under the counter, so because of shortcuts taken by the builder of our house, it was a fairly major plumbing job to reinstall the drain and Badger 5 disposer. Second, we live in an area with hard water, and this black sink shows it. It cleans up nicely, athough the recommended Weiman granite cleaner and polish will not take off the hard water deposits very well. That takes vinegar. Hint: If you want the sink to look really good when company is coming, after cleaning wipe it down with a little cooking oil and a paper towel. It really shines.
