Our top recommendation is the Franke Planar 8 PEX110. Its affordability, spacious size, easy installation and excellent soundproofing makes it a great fit for most homes. Available in 3 different sizes, this stainless steel sink is the perfect option if you’re looking for a stylish yet practical sink that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
This is the first one of our 3 stainless steel Franke sinks. It features Franke’s highly durable 18/10 Chromium/Nickel 18-gauge stainless steel with a sleek design.
Franke’s Planar 8 PEX110 series is a very quiet sink, thanks to CommercialSound dampening used. You won’t hear too much noise even when the garbage disposal is on or the water is running.
Another thing we love about this sink is its spacious size and depth. You can easily fit large utensils in it without having to tilt them. Moreover, a single large bowl provides an uninterrupted workspace as well.
The Franke FHK710 is a farmhouse apron-front sink made of fireclay material. This is a gorgeous sink with amazing durability and sturdiness.
If you don’t mind overspending a little, this is the perfect sink to get. This sink alone can upgrade your kitchen’s looks without you having to remodel it entirely. It is naturally resistant to chips, scratches and stains.
This sink is highly sound-proof as well, offering a quiet washing experience when the sink is in use. Lastly, its deep bowl allows an uninterrupted workspace for you to be easily able to work with large utensils without much hassle.
If taken care of properly, this sink can last for years to come, making every penny of its cost worth it. The only thing you may have to worry about is its flat bottom that can make cleaning a bit time-taking.
Unlike the other stainless steel options on our list, this one is double-bowl. It costs around the same as Franke GDX11031, but is more suitable for people who prefer two sink bowls over one large one.
What we like the most about this sink is the added storage space beneath it due to the sink’s rear drain location. It even increases the workspace area in the sink.
This sink is also very quiet, thanks to the sound dampening pads used. As long as you don’t use any harsh cleaning materials (like steel wool etc.), this sink would remain scratch-free for years to come.
If you prefer natural stone to stainless steel, this may be the sink for you.
Franke DIG61091 is a highly affordable, elegant sink that only requires daily cleaning to be maintained properly. Its slightly curved edges make cleaning easy. The granite composite material is naturally resistant to scratches and stains and can resist heat up to an impressive 536° F.
This sink features a sanitized built-in protective barrier to reduce bacteria growth. It can be mounted both undermount and overmount, making installation more flexible for you.
Our last stainless steel sink is also highly durable as it’s made from the same material as the previous Franke options. It is quite deep as well, perfect for soaking large dishes.
Due to its gently rounded corners, this sink is easier to clean and does not accumulate water in it.
Sound dampening pads used on the sink ensure that you get a quiet experience without unwanted sound while the sink is in use.
For those who don’t have an idea about the brand Franke, we would like to mention here that this brand is not as well-known as some large brands like Kohler, Kraus. But it’s also true that Franke has its own unique and trusted position in the market.
It is a Switzerland based brand founded in 1911. Every Franke product line is carefully designed to bring unique quality and make life easier. The company is renowned for a commitment to excellence.
In the 1930s, it Frank introduced its first kitchen sink in the market. Today it’s one of the world’s foremost kitchen sink manufacturers. The state-of-the-art production, the finest materials and an unmistakable flair for design make every Franke kitchen sink bring style, convenience and craft into your kitchen.
Since the emergence of kitchen sinks of this brand in the 1930s, Franke sinks have proven to be reliable, durable and highly functional. The quality of these sinks is supreme not to mention the unparalleled performance.
Franke sinks are good quality because of their unique composition for each material. For example, Franke stainless steel has 10% nickel while other brands usually have only 8%, making it more reliable. Same goes for Franke’s other materials like granite composite, etc. as well.
Apart from durable material, Franke also offers sound-proofing and classic yet highly practical designs.
