Before writing this review, I have found in different forums that people are complaining about their sink that they can’t use a hot pan directly in the kitchen sink. Well, for that issue, the best solution is using something heat resistant.
Unfortunately, traditional sinks are not heat resistant and when you put something hot, it makes scratches.
But the scenario is different from the Blanco Undermount Kitchen Sink Diamond 441285 . The surface of the sink is heat resistant up to 536°F. You can directly toss your hot pan or pot on the sink for cleaning.
Also, you can drain out hot water in it without any scratch marks. There won’t be a burning issue.
Installing a kitchen sink is so tough, isn’t it? But what about something easier which you can do yourself? The Blanco Diamond 441285 double bowl kitchen sink is designed for versatile installation. The ideal installation process is under-mount style.
For the under-mount style, you need at least 33″ cabinet. You can install it with other cabinets too. For that, you need to modify the kitchen cabinet, it, however, requires some expert help.
If you don’t like the under-mount style, can go for the drop-in style and that won’t be an issue. Before ordering this item, remember that the mounting hardware is not included with the sink. You need to buy them separately.
Want to stay safe from bacterial attack? Then you need to keep the kitchen sink clean all the time. This is possible when there is no water on the surface. To ensure that, it comes with a proper drainage system. It comes with the rear set drain and removes all the water from its surface.
So the surface dries quickly and prevents growing bacteria. The corners come in the rounded shape that you can clean properly.
