Following a miserable encounter with Americast sinks, I was careful to do my homework just before picking a replacement. The Blanco brand overall has received a lot of beneficial feedback from people today on assessment/chat boards, and the Silgranit in certain has been nicely received.
I'll add my voice to the Silgranit supporters - this is one wonderful sink! The color is excellent - looks fantastic and so uncomplicated to maintain clean. I've been making use of the Blanco cleaner and it functions well, but they say in their documentation that you can use any nonabrasive cleaner with fantastic outcomes, and use Bar Keepers Buddy for stubborn stains.
Really easy to install. The sink weighs about 45 pounds, so it really is not a chore to lift into location. I mounted it as a drop in, but you can also mount it as an undermount. Honestly like that the rim is flat so when mounted as a drop in you can use the back rim to hold items (like a brush/scrubber holder) without having it falling off. It comes with ten clips ought to you want to do an undermount so there's nothing at all further that desires to be purchased.
It comes with a single center hole drilled, but you can easily add much more. There are a total of six additional hole punchouts - the back is scored so you can punch out the hole making use of a hammer. Blanco offers detailed directions on how to do so, even specifying the type and size of the hammer you need to use. A single hole was fine for my set up, but this is a excellent function for those who will need one thing other than the regular hole layout - you can get a custom layout without paying an extra dime (or having to wait weeks for a unique order).
The sink is extremely well packed at the factory with foam all more than. Survived the UPS truck without having a scratch.
Blanco customer service is responsive. I emailed them with a question concerning the use of plumbers putty and they got back to me inside an hour. They do not advocate using plumbers putty because the oils in it can leach into the granite and stain. You quite possibly wouldn't discover it on the anthracite color but, to be on the secure side, I utilised marble-secure putty. That can be difficult to get considering the fact that the big box hardware shops normally do not carry it, but you can generally come across it at a plumbing provide home. Other options are clear silicon (which is what Blanco recommends) that you can find anyplace. Silicon can work excellent but it is a genuine bear to get rid of should really you want to transform out a faucet or drainpipe down the road. If you can uncover it, marble secure putty is the better option.
I was a bit worried that I would miss getting two basins, but 1 big basin is so significantly significantly more helpful. You can soak cookie sheets, huge pans, and so on. with ease. Wonderful to have all that room!
This sink is everything you expect. It's gigantic, nearly ten" deep, and except for getting slightly wider than a normal 33" opening the installation was basic. I replaced an existing sink and had no problems, the complete method took only a handful of hours (remember, I am NOT a plumber and had never accomplished this ahead of). Having previously bought a black Thermocast sink from Residence Depot I was hesitant to get an additional in a similar color. Yet, exactly where the HD sink was simply stained, scratched, and constructed of [basically] fiberglass, this Blanco sink feels precisely like granite. The "Anthracite" color is a small towards the gray end of the color palette, but I have it next to a deep black double oven so that may well be misleading. I think any individual looking for a black sink would be a great deal more than happy with this sink.
I have had the sink in for a month now and I cannot tension how resistant it is to staining and scratching. My residence has challenging water so I do use the Blanco Cleaner about as soon as a week and it has kept the finish looking brand new. I also purchased a Blanco drain at the similar time, talk about a best match! The flange fit perfectly into the indent in the sink, they had been clearly made for each other (and did NOT require plumber's putty... with no leaks!).
