Why are stainless steel sinks so popular?

Stainless steel sinks are often in contact with water, are not easily corroded by water, are hard in texture, are not easy to rust, and have a heat-proof function and will not melt, so they have become the choice of most families.
Stainless steel sink is the first choice for many home decorators who are pursuing exquisite and fashionable kitchen life. Compared with quartz stone sinks and ceramic sinks, stainless steel sinks are more and more popular due to their beauty and durability.

How to distinguish the pros and cons of stainless steel sinks?

Different quality sinks have the same external dimensions, but the prices are very different. When choosing a kitchen sink, you can comprehensively analyze the quality from the following points.

1. Craftsmanship

The production of kitchen sinks is divided into the welding method and the one-piece forming method.
The welded sink may leak due to corrosion of chemical liquids, such as detergents.
The one-piece forming process is a particularly important process, which requires high steel plate material, so leakage can be avoided to a certain extent.

2. Material

304 Stainless steel is the most suitable steel plate for making sinks. The surface of this kind of steel plate is smooth and does not hang dirt, it is more convenient and quick to clean. Both hardness and wear resistance are most suitable for kitchen use.

3. Weight

Stainless steel is an Iron Alloy with heavy metals such as Nickel and Chromium added. These metals have a heavier specific gravity than steel. Inferior stainless steel (such as chrome-plated steel plate) will be lighter.

4. Thickness

High-quality sinks use 304 stainless steel plates with a thickness of 1mm, while ordinary low-end sinks use 202 stainless steel plates with a thickness of about 0.3mm. When purchasing, you can distinguish between the corners of the sink and the thickness of the bottom coating. Generally, low-grade sinks have thinner corners and a thicker bottom coating.

5. Depth

The depth of the stainless steel sink is not the longer the better. Generally, the depth of the sink is about 20cm, which is more suitable for ergonomics. The sink depth is less than 18cm, it is very easy for water to splash. If it is too deep, it will not only be wastewater and must be operated with head down.

6. Anti-leakage of the sewer pipe

PVC is usually used as the material of sewer pipe. The high-quality sewer pipe can quickly drain the sewage, prevent the odor from returning, and reduce the growth of bacteria.

7. Anti-noise treatment

Generally speaking, the bottom of the sink is sprayed or glued with a rubber sheet to reduce the impact of the water from the faucet on the bottom of the basin, which has a buffering effect and reduces noise.

8. Appearance

The inner corner of the high-quality sink is close to 90 degrees, and the four sides of the panel have no concave or convex. The high-quality sink (Such as High-Quality Sus304 Handmade Sink) has a flat surface without protrusions, beautiful appearance, and has the characteristics of not easy to stick to oil, easy to clean, and wear-resistant.


The quality of the stainless steel sink is important, but daily maintenance is also indispensable. For example, do not use sharp metal products such as steel wire balls to rub the surface of the sink, and keep the sink dry after use.
