Ruvati VS Ticor --What's the difference?

Posted by monasan (My Page) on

Hi All,

So I am on the search for a drainboard sink with cool work style features like the colander/ cutting board inserts. I just found one from ruvati (RVH8200) and one from ticor (TR4100). Both are very similar in style / function but the ruvati does look shinier in the pic though.

Has anyone seen these brands up close?

Anyone with personal experience or installation photos please share! Or any knowledge of the brand differences could be very helpful.

*I'll post the ticor here and the ruvati in my next post I don't know how to do both links at once.

See below for the link to the ruvati.

P.S. I am especially interested in if there is any difference in the quality / look of the stainless steel

RE: Ruvati VS Ticor --What's the difference?

I believe Ticor sinks are no longer made, and in fact, on your link the Ticor is shown as out of stock. So, cross it off your list.

I'll link a thread that has links to a number of sinks with drainboards.

Edited: I see there are two sellers on eBay right now with the Ticor TR4100 sink. Both are selling with all the sink's accessories.

Having said that, I like the Ruvati better solely because I prefer the Ruvati's offset drain to Ticor's center drain. I do not like center drains.

I have the Ruvati RVH7400 and the quality of the sink is exceptional. It has the heavy 16 gauge feel to it: low noise. The brushed finish is also very high quality. I have had the sink for more than a year now and its holding up well.

RE: Ruvati VS Ticor --What's the difference?

Hey Dennis, Thanks for the input! Looks like a nice model. I was just debating if I should go with a bigger bowl instead of the drainboard combo. My dilemma is I will have a small kitchen and I really don't like the look of dish racks. I know the big bowls are better for big baking jobs but I'll only be doing that a handful of times each year. Oh, I don't know...maybe I should put up a separate post on that.

What did brand did you go with for a faucet?

RE: Ruvati VS Ticor --What's the difference?

For faucet, I went with a Delta touch faucet. My wife loves the touch feature!

RE: Ruvati VS Ticor --What's the difference?

Dennis, did you get the Delta Trinsic? Does the diameter bother you at all (when we first saw it, we thought it looked a little "chunky" but maybe installed in a real kitchen, that wouldn't be the case).
