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