Is Cast Iron What it Used to Be 30 Years Ago?
When we built our home in 1981, we installed 3 Kohler cast iron sinks. One of them is still in use today (the one that's being ripped out asap!). They served us well. In 2002, I got another Kohler cast iron sink. The finish isn't wearing as well as the first cast iron kitchen sink. I'm considering the Kohler Bellwether tub because it's cast iron. Frankly, we were pleased with our Kohler enamel over steel tubs but they don't seem to have a very good reputation with this crowd. I have to think the quality has diminished because, again, our two enameled steel tubs from Kohler served us well. There is a small chip in DH's tub but it has never "grown" or developed rust.
