Q. "What does the gauge mean?"
A. During the manufacturing process, stainless steel sinks are "stamped" into shape. That means that the material stretches and therefore the corners can be very thin. We suggest at least 20 gauge and preferably 18 gauge. The lower the number, the thicker the material. In our opinion, 22 gauge is bare minimum - builder quality.
Q. "How do I know which kitchen sink is right for me?"
A. Choosing a kitchen sink is largely a matter of personal taste and function. You should consider how you typically use your kitchen sink and where it may be lacking in functionality for you. Equally important is your available space and the type of installation you require. For a more comprehensive overview of what you should take into consideration when choosing a kitchen sink, check out our Kitchen Sink Buying Guide.
