The kind of granite sink we're talking about here is the type made from solid stone.
A composite granite sink is an engineered product, made from a combination of materials.
Two ways about Granite Sinks
Granite kitchen sinks can be made two ways. The first involves carving out the basin (or basins, for a multi-bowl sink) from a block of granite. The bowls are literally cleaved out of the block of stone, resulting in a one-piece granite kitchen sink. Some sinks are actually hand carved, with a hammer and chisel whereas others are carved using automated tooling.
Granite Sink Quality
The quality of a stainless steel sink varies widely. Price is often an indicator of the quality and how well the sink will perform.
However, a better means of determining quality is the thickness or gauge of steel, the nickel content of the steel, sound deadening features, and finish.
Stainless steel is an alloy of iron, chromium, and nickel. The term “stainless” refers to it’s resistance to rust.
“Gauge” refers to the thickness of the sink, the lower the number, the thicker the stainless steel. Heavier gauge sinks can help prevent denting and bowing. Thickness also contributes to noise reduction from garbage disposals and dishes or utensils hitting the sink. As a general rule, thicker is better. A 16 guage sink is a quality thickness.
Pros: Made of granite particles and polymers, this material resists scratches and chips. It does not show water spots.
Cons: Lighter-colored granite composite sinks can stain, and some special maintenance is required.
“We are installing a lot of granite composite sinks in Dallas,” says YeYang. “Many people here have hard water, and this doesn’t show spots the way stainless steel does.”
