Which type of Stainless Steel sink to buy
Posted by Cara on July 10, 1999 at 20:20:16:
: Hi-- I read the info on Terry's kitchen remodel page about sinks, but I am still confused. What guage and nickel content are good? Sink we are considering at our local home imp. center is 21 guage, and nickel content said 18-8. Good? Bad? Please tell me what I need to get to get a decent quality sink at a decent price. Thanks

You could get heavier gauge sink. Many manufactures carry 18 gauge sinks (Moen, etc), as well as lighter models. Either will work, but the heavier gauge is more resistant to denting. Most all residential sinks will be some derivative of 304 Stainless.
