    Default Sink Poll - are you a double or single bowler? What is your Dream sink? :-)

    Hey so I dunno why but lately I have really been finding my double
    bowl kitchen sink annoying and dreaming of a nice deep single bowl.

    How about you? Are you a monogamous or bi-bowlular? <snort>

    What do you like best about your sink? Worst? What would your dream
    sink/faucet be?

    One feature I haven't seen (haven't looked very widely) is a quick
    release tip for either the main faucet or the water gun on the hose so
    I can clip on a thin 6 inch long tube and send water directly to the
    bottom of a jar of stuff so the rinse water pushes all the old water
    out rather than coming in at the top. <long sentence hunh)

    I have a large single sink back at my apartment in TN. Sometimes I miss it
    because it's large enough to take a 13X9" glass baking dish or to soak my
    broiler pan without a problem. OTOH, it's nice to have a second sink to be
    able to rinse things off in and in which to set a dish drainer. Ideally,
    I'd have all three. Unfortunately I'll never have the "ideal"

    I like the double bowl. I leave the dish rack in one side and have one
    bowl for washing and whatever. If I need the other side I can take out
    the drying rack.

    I have a porcelain sink now and I hate it.I would prefer a single large,
    deep sink.

    One of the dumbest mistakes I made was installing a double sink in the new
    kitchen we built last year. I thought it was a really cool idea and had 2
    friends that had one in their kitchens. They swore by it (though they
    disavow any knowledge of doing that now). I chose one that had a large bowl
    and a small bowl to the left that contains the disposal. It's a really nice
    sink but I can't put large baking sheets or roasting pans flat in the large
    bowl to clean them, a huge disadvantage.

    I thought It would be great to have the garbage disposal in a separate bowl
    so I could scrape dishes and stack them in the large bowl and not worry
    about blocking the disposal chute, but the cost in sink space is too great.
    Every time I make a large dinner I'm juggling having to do all the small
    stuff first so I have room to do the roasting pans at an angle, which takes
    the whole sink. If I want to soak them is soapy water it has to be on the
    counter. A real PITA.

    We've actually been discussing pulling the sink and putting in a single bow,
    which would be expensive as the granite would have to be re-cut to fit the
    new sink. But it bugs me enough that well probably do that this summer.

    BTW, if our space for a sink was bigger it wouldn't be an issue. Our sink
    had to fit into a 36" cabinet. If we had a 48" base this would have given us
    room for a BIG double sink would have worked much better.

    I like my sink. Enamel, double, kind of plain, shines up nice. The most
    important part of the kitchen is the window over the sink, as long as
    everything works fine.

    I've always had a single deep sink with a sprayer/hose on the side.
    Double bowls are too small for my purposes. I don't like the faucets
    where the head turns into a sprayer hose. Doesn't feel right to me.
    I like my own faucet. It's a single lever with a long curved neck
    that I can get large stock pots under with no problem.

    Mine is finally ss. I used the porcelain sink that came with the
    house and hated it every minute. I like my sink window too. It's
    huge and comes all the way down to the back splash.

    I prefer single. I don't wash dishes by hand, so a double bowl just
    means "half the size", which isn't very useful.

    My dream sink isn't terribly deep (because bending over is hard on
    the back), but is big enough to accommodate
    a half sheet pan and/or the grates from my stove. (Thanks for
    the reminder; I'm googling in another tab to see if they're dishwasher
    safe.) I'd also like to try a farmhouse-style sink, with the "apron"
    in the front.

    We have always had a double-bowl sink and that's what we like, for
    washing & rinsing dishes among other things. In the past it was
    stainless steel, as deep as possible. The current sink is one of
    those composite jobs that looks sort of like black granite. Doesn't
    chip like porcelain, but it does appear to have stained (rust)
    somewhat over the last five or six years. Still, it's nice and solid
    and deep. We've no desire to change.

    Ours has, and I personally prefer, separate hot and cold handles
    rather than the single lift handle. And the faucet itself is a tall
    gooseneck so that we can put almost anything underneath it; a tall
    bucket, a big stockpot, whatever.

    Best -- Terry

    I love having the double sink.It's easier to wash dishes, wash in one side
    and rinse in the other side. Plus, if there's dishes in the sink, I can
    still use the other side for washing food and rinsing things as I'm cooking.

    > What do you like best about your sink? Worst? What would your dream
    > sink/faucet be?


    I like that my sinks are deep and the faucet is high enough to get things
    under. I am very satisfied with my sink. I really don't have complaints
    about the actual sink. My countertop isn't level though so any water that
    splashes back behind the faucet rolls all the way to the end of the counter
    and onto the floor if I don't catch it in time.

    We have a big double sink in our new kitchen. It's an undermount under the
    granite. For the most part I really like it. We had a smaller double sink
    before and I hated it. The small bowl was ridiculous and I used it mostly
    as a receptical hold all the peelings etc. before squishing them into the
    garbage disposal. The new one is pretty good sized so I'm pretty happy
    with it. I *do* get irritated with the stainless steel though. It
    scratches a lot but I get most of them out with Bar Keeper's Friend
    cleanser.

    Our condo had a big single bowl sink. I really liked it. I could soak a
    big roasting pan in it with no problem.

    It's SS, easy to keep clean, both bowls are nice and deep. Faucet suits

    Figures you'd be a faucet maven... guess it's suitable for nice and deep...
    mine has a big spray head, and by pressing my rubbery tip you can choose a
    stream or a powerful spray: http://i39.tinypic.com/34plt7t.jpg

    Seems like I've always had stainless doubles. Liked 'em.

    Now, I've got an old enamel single. Onepiece with the aprons on each
    side. Kinda retro-cool, but not much as a sink.

    And, now that you mention it, I hate this short, single-handle faucet
    and never have had much use for a sprayer . Simple enough to replace
    it with a tall pot-filler, if I weren't so cheap and lazy.

    Don't believe in disposals, either. It's not garbage, it's compost.

    I "grew up" on double stainless steel sinks. Now (in my teeny weeny
    "accessible" kitchen) i have a single stainless sink but it's big
    enough to hold a medium sized cookie sheet and my smaller cutting
    boards.
    The best sink I ever had was an old double chipped white porcelain job
    with an at least 18" deep "canning sink" on the left side. I loved
    that sink! It was positively the BEST place to bathe a baby (once she
    could sit up :-)

    Double SS sink, with one bowl bigger than the other, and a faucet with
    a pull-out sprayer. Just what I wanted - and when we redid the kitchen
    4.5 years ago I got it :-)

    That depends. If I had a lot of space for a sink, and thus could
    have a normal-sized sink as part of a twosome, that wouldn't be
    bad. But I wouldn't want two small sinks.
