Some of life’s most personal moments are spent in the kitchen—from morning rituals to family gatherings and even learning how to prepare new meals. A well-appointed kitchen that combines functionality and style provides the perfect backdrop to these innermost scenes of our lives.

Of course, a quality sink is integral to the overall performance and comfort of any kitchen. But what is the best kitchen sink for your project? Let’s explore.

Best Kitchen Sink Material: Stainless Steel  

Stainless steel sinks are common in residential and commercial kitchens for many reasons, including their durability and sleek style.  

The best stainless steel kitchen sinks have a lower gauge, meaning 16-gauge sinks are more resistant to corrosion, stains, and dents than 22-gauge sinks. When shopping for a stainless steel sink, you should always choose 16-gauge for the best quality—and avoid 22-gauge stainless steel at all costs.  

Best Kitchen Sinks from KALLISTA

Our 16-gauge stainless steel sinks include a diverse range of single and multi-tier chef-inspired kitchen sinks, accessories, and complementing entertainment, bar, and butler sinks, many designed by renowned designer Mick De Giulio.

Whether you prefer a self-rimming or apron front configuration, KALLISTA has a variety of options for you, including some with hand-hammered surfaces and distressed finishes.
