What should you know about kitchen sink?

Applicable size of single tank
A sink cabinet of at least 60 cm should be reserved for a single-slot sink, which is practical and easy to use. Generally speaking, it can be 80 to 90 cm. If your kitchen space is small, it is more suitable to choose a single-slot sink.


Applicable size of double-groove sink
Double-slot tank is a way to divide one tank into two areas. Most of them are the way to distinguish the big one from the small one. Therefore, the space required is naturally larger than that of a single tank. Generally, the installation of double slots requires a sink cabinet of more than 80 cm to be complete and easy to use, so it is easy to compress the space of the operating table when installing double slots in the small kitchen.

Single slot VS double slot
The single-trough basin has a large volume and is spacious to use. It can be put into large pots and pans for cleaning. It is suitable for Chinese families and users who are accustomed to using the basin to clean vegetables and fruits. The small disadvantage is that no matter dirt or greasy things are cleaned in the same sink, which is easy to affect the cleanness of the sink, so the cleaning of the sink becomes particularly important.
The double tank can be divided into two types: draining while cleaning, and cold and hot cleaning or oil cleaning. It can perform two kinds of actions at the same time, with more diversified forms. The small disadvantage is that the large water tank with double grooves is already the size of the cut, so it is easy to put the big pot and big basin for cleaning.
Therefore, it is most appropriate to choose according to your own usage habits.


Stainless steel sink: easy to use and easy to clean
The stainless steel material, which is resistant to high temperature, humidity and easy to clean, is the most widely used sink material on the market today. It is light in weight, convenient in installation, diverse and versatile in shape. The only disadvantage is that it is easy to produce scratches when it is used. If you want to improve it, you can carry out special treatment on the surface, such as wool surface, fog surface, high-pressure carving process, etc., but the price will be relatively higher.
The sink should be 304 stainless steel (stainless steel can be divided into martensite, austenite, ferrite, and duplex stainless steel (austenite and ferrite duplex). When you see 304, you should also pay attention to the prefix, usually SUS and DUS.
SUS304 is a standard high-quality stainless steel with good corrosion resistance.
DUS304 is an alloy material containing chromium, manganese, sulfur, phosphorus and other elements. It is easy to understand that it is recycled material. It is not only poor in corrosion resistance, but also easy to rust.

Artificial stone sink: stone texture, easy to clean
The artificial stone sink is solid and durable, and the surface is smooth without fine holes after the treatment of the table top without joints. Oil and water stains are not easy to attach to it, which can reduce the breeding of bacteria, and is very convenient for cleaning and maintenance. In addition, if quartz grade artificial stone is used to build the sink, the hardness will be higher, the texture will be better, and the budget will be higher.


Granite sink: hard texture, high temperature resistance
The granite sink made of high-purity quartz stone mixed with high-performance resin and cast by high temperature and high pressure has the characteristics of hardness, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, anti-dyeing, etc. It can also effectively eliminate scratches and dirt, and is easy to maintain. It is quite suitable for families that often cook, and the only disadvantage is that it is expensive.

Ceramic sink: smooth surface, integrated forming
The ceramic sink is formed and fired in one piece. It is resistant to high temperature and easy to clean, but it is heavy and usually protrudes from the cabinet. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to whether the kitchen table can support its weight when purchasing. The ceramic sink has a low water absorption rate. If water seeps into the ceramic, it will expand and deform, and maintenance is more troublesome.
