Large Single Sinks & Food Particles
We thought we wanted a single bowl but I am definitely having doubts.
We decided to purchase a used single bowl sink to test if indeed this is what we want to install in our permanent remodeled kitchen in the future. We had a 50/50 enamel covered steel prior so most anything would be an improvement.
The sink we have is 28" wide. After using it over the holiday, we think we'd prefer slightly smaller. That said we'd like to get a silgranite which has only a 22" single or a 30.5" sink (I'm using interior bowl measurements). Given the 2 options, we'd go the bigger size with the drain on the right side
I've noticed with my current SS sink with the drain in the middle I'm spending much more time getting debri down the drain. It seems like a do a lot of rinsing, only to find particles left over. I'd like to think that having the drain on one side would collect the food to one side and then down the drain, but I don't want to presume anything.
Is it the SS that catches the food debri worse? How is silgranite sinks for rinsing down larger food particles? I really like the reviews of silgranite but gosh the choices for sinks are pretty limiting.
The issue of having pans, misc drain on the counter towel is rather annoying too. I was going to look for an adjustable dish drainer.
I do LOVE that my kitchen has been seeming a lot cleaner!!! Pans that soak are sitting in the sink and much less noticeable. Not having the divider right in front of where I'm trying to do work is nice too. I realize with everything there is adjustment, I guess with all the single bowl admiration I hear on this forum, I thought it would be love at first use.
