They come in various sizes and are made from various grades of aluminum and cast iron; some cheaper and some more expensive. The good thing about them is that they can be planned for when putting in a new kitchen and have the depth as well as the width to be of real use in a kitchen that does a lot of cooking and baking. The double sinks are partitioned and are really not made for washing big pots or pans. Double sinks are sometimes viewed as being separated to take the place of the dish pan with soap while rinsing dishes in the other. The fact is that many if not all modern kitchens have dishwashers and that the large one bowl sink really makes the better sense to be used for big pots and pans that don‘t really fit into normal size dishwashers. Few people consider that they actually do have an option when planning their kitchens in choosing the style, as we have become almost brainwashed into thinking that a double sink is really giving us more room to work in. Most kitchens have a 36 inch space that can be filled by one single bowl sink or two smaller ones called double sinks.
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.
