Kitchen sink - stainless of fireclay

I am renovating my kitchen and am trying to pick out a sink. What materials do the chowhound members recommend? I would like a farmhouse style, under mounted but am at a loss after that. I am on budget so cost is a definite factor.

  1. Fiona, I have a large farmhouse sink but have never heard of "stainless of fireclay" so I cannot be of much help to you. Mine is quite old and I would have to guess that it is something (porcelain?) over cast iron. It's big enough that half sheet pans fit flat on the bottom. I love this sink with a passion usually reserved for chocolate! Good luck on your hunt.

    1. I wish I had not replaced my porcelain over cast iron sink with a stainless one. When the sun shines in the window above the sink, the glare is blinding and so annoying

      1. OOPS - I meant stainless OR fireclay

          1. Fireclay.
            Out of all the upgrades we made to the house, switching to a fireclay sink has been one of my all-time favorites.
