at the sink

I spend a fair amount of time at the sink. On a busy cooking day I run the dishwasher twice. I have two little boys who eat a fair amount, and I like to cook so that is a recipe for dishes. Sinks have come a long way in the past few decades. This single basin stainless steel sink by Kohler uses a new technology called SilentShield which is an exclusive sound-absorption system. It reduces disposal noise and vibration from dishes and running water.

This farmhouse sink is made of fireclay, which is softer than most porcelain and is easier on your dishes.

I could use a longer washer for prep and clean up.

Undermount sinks make for an easier cleanup with no edge for food particles to get stuck in.

You don’t need to have granite countertops or a farmhouse sink to mount them underneath. The below one is shown with corian.


The seamless sink also allows for easy cleanup into a disposal. No more unsightly rims.


I love the look of a copper sink as well.
