Trebuchet, integrated stainless steel sinks in solid surface

Trebuchet, first I would like to thank you for all the information and advice you offer in this forum. I have learned so much from your posts after lurking for the past 5 months.

One of the things I learned from you recently is that it's possible to have an integrated stainless steel sink in a solid surface counter. Is the Karran Edge the only sink that can be integrated? And should I make sure my fabricator has experience integrating a ss sink, or is an integrated sink an integrated sink, regardless of material?

Thank you for your help.

Thanks for the kind words. I enjoy sharing here.

I'm not aware of any other manufacturers that offer an integrated stainless steel sink other than Karran. I've seen quite a few sinks in my day and the Karrans are impressive.

If your fabricator has bonded solid surface bowls previously, he should have no trouble with the Karran. I'd rough out the cut-out with a jigsaw, because if the bearing comes off the router bit, and they have come off for me, it will probably seriously damage the sink. When he profiles the sink cut out edge, he can touch the stainless just a poo with the bit. It removes all the adhesive, but makes a very shiny mark that is easily removed when finishing the edge with abrasives.

I've had the "D" shaped single bowl for several years and love it.
