Wholesale and discounted kitchen sinks are available online and in kitchen stores. With the number of stores and sites that offer kitchen sinks out there, it is best if you research, compare and contrast first before committing to one. Once purchased, the next thing to do with the kitchen sink is to install it. Among the available types of kitchen sink installations, undermount kitchen sinks are the most common, yet most difficult, to complete because they eliminate the upper ring of the sink. This is done so that food and kitchen dirt can easily be wiped into the sink.
Information about stainless kitchen sinks is not hard to find, but sometimes it is hard to understand with numbers, alloys and percentages floating around in the product descriptions. It may look complicated but in reality, almost all stainless steel sinks are fabricated from Type 304 stainless steel. This is the basic form of stainless steel and what this number signifies is that this steel contains a minimum of 18% chromium, 8% nickel and a maximum of.08% carbon. This is why you will also see the number 18-8 steel listed in the specifications sometimes, they are simply referring to the percentages of chromium and nickel blended with the steel to make it stronger.
