This classic material is not only practical, it’s also extremely versatile. While stainless steel sinks’ neutral color and sleek looks complement a wide range of kitchen styles, they’re most at home in contemporary and transitional spaces.
Stainless steel sinks live up to their name: they are incredibly resistant to staining and rust. Hot pans won’t hurt them, and they’re less likely than harder materials such as stone or fireclay to damage delicate dishware that may slip from your grip.
Our Undertone® Preserve Series feature a unique scratch-resistant layer that offers added protection from everyday wear and tear.
They’re easy to clean.
Most stainless steel sinks just need a quick wipe down with a sponge at least once a week. If your sink should need a more thorough cleaning, here are some tips and products to consider.
Select Vault™ sinks and all of our Strive™ sinks include accessories like bottom bowl racks to help prevent scratching, a divider dishcloth bar and a divider utility shelf for scrubbers and sponges.

Fabricated sinks stainless steel sinks
Fabricated sinks are made by bending and welding the stainless steel to form it into geometric angles to provide more space for dishes. The steel is often thicker, and these sinks are priced higher accordingly.
Drawn or molded stainless steel sinks
A drawn, or molded, stainless steel sink is made by pressing the steel over a mold, so there are no seams. These rounded bowl sinks are smooth and easy to clean.
