When I ask for opinions on thinks like sinks or whatever I’m asking about, it’s to get your opinion. Several have left comments saying things like “Get what YOU want!” That’s what I’m trying to find out! I can’t go into another kitchen and use a different type sink for a month and see what it’s like . . how it cleans, how it shines, how it scratches. I don’t know what I want until I get more info . . that’s why I’m asking! I don’t trust that everything I read online or everything I hear from a salesman is true, or at least true in my kitchen, where there’s heavy duty cooking, canning, pickling, etc.
How better to find out honest opinions than from users of the various sinks out there?
I was not asking anyone to change my mind . . I wanted opinions and thoughts from those who have used the various sinks. Most any time I ask for advice or opinions, I’m going to assimilate the info in the comments, combine it with my own research and make my decision based on such information.
With the sinks, the composite granite sinks are fairly new and I’m not one to jump on something just because it’s new and trendy. I figured if they’re as good as everyone online and the sales folks are saying, maybe I do need that! Thanks to everyone who left comments about the sink. For those who have and love your composite sinks, that’s great. Had I realized that my own sink is composite, I would never have asked and I think after seeing the pictures, you’ve seen why I’m not happy with it.
Someone commented that my sink was probably not top of the line. Little that I have is. Consumer Report reported on kitchen sinks in June, 2012. They didn’t include the composite granite sinks in the study because of a failure of both sinks they tried to test. One was a $200 sink and one was a $290 sink. A subscription is required to read their entire article but you can read bout the composite granite sinks here. The sink I currently have sells now for $400+ so while not top of the line, I would expect more from a $400+ sink. The sink I will get costs a good bit more than $400 but it definitely is not top of the line.
