Building stainless sinks out of domestic 316L surgical grade stainless steel offers more resistant to corrosion than 304 grade stainless steel.
316L steel prevents sitting soapy water or soap from staining your sink and is resistant to household bleach. You should never put pure household cleaning bleach in any type 304 stainless steel sink.
We are honored when industry professionals are impressed with the work that we do. Last year, we welcomed potential customers to our artisan shop, and among them was a gentleman who happened to work in welding at N.A.S.A. He was pleasantly surprised to discover that we use the same high-end welding equipment as N.A.S.A. After taking a tour of our facilities and witnessing our welding and finishing practices, he enthusiastically exclaimed, "Take my money!" Upon returning to work, he shared his experience with his colleagues, which led to one of his coworkers also ordering a sink from us.
What he, along with numerous others, have observed regarding our welding technique, is the size and quality of our welds. While the method we utilize requires a considerably greater amount of time, the end result is a pristine appearance that makes it worthwhile. The clean lines contribute to the overall sleek appearance of our sinks. This attention to detail and commitment to quality are just a couple of reasons why our sinks differ from others on the market.
Our technique of MicroWelding interior corners offers an easy to clean corner based on countless past customer comments. The weld is so tiny you can barely see it. If you are into cool welding, this is your choice!
Our sinks are designed to be as functional as they are beautiful. All of our sinks have the capability of placing a half sheet pan on the step or ledge ,which means freeing up even more counterspace when preparing a meal.
A prep tip!
Bring your meat in from the outdoor grill in a half sheet pan. Cut the meat up on the cutting board. No mess!
Our hand finished stainless steel eliminates the need to protect the bottom of the bowl. (see photo below) Use your sink without worries. The typical stainless finish, seen above, is quite shiny and has a linear grain pattern. Scratches pop out at you. Our less shiny, random pattern, diminishes the look of scratches. As you use the sink over time, the small scratches you see will blend in with our finish nicely. Unless you have a deep scratch, it is best to let the scratches blend in together over time. If you happen to see a deep scratch simply rub it out gently in a random pattern and blend in with the original finish with the ScotchBrite pad we sent along with your sink.
Many other companies use the flange of the sink as a top step to create a second step for holding accessories. It is always a bad idea to have water sitting on a caulk joint, as you can see! I took this photo in a meticulously clean showroom and even there, they had difficulty cleaning the flange and keeping the caulk from degrading.
Look at the corner welding difference between this well known brand and the above photo.

The inherent problems with hammered nickel sinks. The nickel is plated over a hammered copper sink. I can assure you that the nickel will wear off over time, and often very quickly. This is a very poor choice!
This comment on Houzz.com tells an interesting story. By the way, our hand finished stainless Signature Series sink with a white butcher board and a grid was $3560 delivered back in 2016. Price as of 5/9/23 for the same sink is $3149.
Hammering our hand finished stainless actually offers a hidden benefit. Ask us about it!
You should hear your guests, not the sink. We use a robust system to ensure your sink will be extremely quiet!
Our Harmony sink designs offer two drains so each person has a drain on long sinks. Better yet, food prep on one side, clean up as you go on the other side.
