Karran® Stainless Steel Sink Features

One of the standout features of Karran® stainless steel sinks is their durability. Made from premium 16-18 gauge stainless steel, Karran stainless steel sinks offer a great feature known as noise reduction technology. These sinks come with sound-absorbing undercoating that reduces noise from dishes and running water. This is particularly useful if your kitchen is located near living spaces, as it helps minimize disturbances. Another great feature of Karran stainless steel sinks is their various styles and sizes. A double equal, 60/40, or super single can be installed by an under-mount or drop-in. At Ray’s Countertop Shop, Inc., we recommend Karran stainless steel sinks due to their modern designs and sleek looks that complement various kitchen styles.

Cleaning a stainless steel sink is relatively simple. For everyday cleaning, you can use mild dish soap and a soft cloth or sponge, rinsing thoroughly to remove any leftover soap residue. To remove stubborn stains, you can use a non-abrasive cleaner, such as baking soda, Bar Keeper’s Friend®, Zud®, Comet, Flitz®, Soft Scrub®, or Mr. Clean®. Using abrasive materials like steel wool can scratch the surface of the sink, so be sure to have a clean dishcloth on hand to scrub at any streaks or dark spots.

To maintain the shine of your stainless steel sink, it’s a good idea to occasionally wipe it down with a stainless steel cleaner or polish. This will help to remove any water spots or fingerprints and restore the sink’s luster.

The Benefits of a Stainless Steel Sink for Your Kitchen

There are many benefits to choosing a stainless steel sink for your kitchen. One of the primary benefits is their durability. Our quality products are made with 16-18 gauge stainless steel that offers long-lasting protection and a luxury investment for your kitchen. Another benefit of stainless steel sinks is their low maintenance requirements. They are easy to clean and don’t require any special cleaning products or techniques to keep them looking and functioning properly.

With a stainless steel sink from Ray’s Countertop Shop, Inc., you’ll never have to worry about chipping or cracks that can be common with other sink materials, such as porcelain or cast iron. Stainless steel sinks are a great choice for homeowners concerned about hygiene. Stainless steel is non-porous, which means it doesn’t harbor bacteria or other harmful pathogens. This makes it an ideal choice for food preparation and clean-up.
