In old provincial kitchens, sinks were often cast iron or some form of pre-cast stone. They were virtually indestructible with volumes of every day use. Most had double ones. One for washing, one for rinsing as well as a drainboard. Many had one shallow and one deeper for doing laundry or giving baby a bath. Today‘s country kitchen sinks are pretty and useful. Most are free-standing or attached to a wood cabinet. The traditional look for today‘s sinks is one that has a cabinet under it and a skirt rather than a wooden cabinet door. In most country farmhouses, the kitchen was the picture of simplicity. The sink reflected that simplicity with a single large basin with a cast iron apron at the front. Very often, the basin was porcelain over cast iron to insure longer wear. The clean lines of a farmhouse sink was enhanced by two spindle legs on either side of it. These sinks were nearly always white or a dark travertine stone color. The great thing about these sinks is how well they retained heat. This was especially helpful since hot water was not supplied in older country homes by a water heater. Usually, water was heated in a large kettle kept atop the cook stove for dish washing purposes.
Despite the numerous benefits one could get from using a ceramic sink, it also has a drawback. Ceramic kitchen sinks are more prone to scratching or chipping. One it has been scratched, nothing can be done to revert it back to its original appearance. Hence, if damaged there is a need for immediate replacement which could turn out to be more costly than investing on a more expensive material. Before, most sinks are made out of a ceramic covered cast iron. But now, it uses earthenware as base. It was a great improvement. Since, cast iron is heavier than ceramic, Pure Ceramic Sinks are much easier to install and manage. Ceramic Kitchen Sinks come in different forms. Single bowl sinks are recommended for bigger plates as it is much deeper than the other types. Double bowl sinks, on the other hand are for multiple uses. Having a dishwasher at home may also affect your decision in choosing which type will be best for you.
