I've spent my whole professional life specifying stainless steel sinks but in the last few years something else has shown up on my radar.
Namely the Silgranit sink from Blanco.
Anybody who's had a stainless sink knows that having one involves ignoring scratches or buffing them out regularly. Who needs that added aggravation?
Silgranit gets rid of that hassle and gives you a stain and scratch resistant sink that you can also coordinate with your counters.
Silgranit sinks can be undermounted or dropped in and using one ensures a lifetime of trouble-free use. If you're in the market for a new kitchen sink, consider a Silgranit.
