What are your sinks made of?
Our Natural and Premium finish sinks are made from 99.9% virgin cold-rolled copper or brass. In contrast, our Artisan finish sinks use eco-friendly recycled copper and brass with a 98.9% purity level. Our kitchen sinks come standard in 16-gauge, and you have the option to upgrade to the premium 14-gauge.
Is there lead in your sinks?
No, our sinks are tested for purity and our craftsman provides certifications that the copper is lead-free.
Is there a sealant on the natural copper or natural brass sinks?
Our natural finish copper and brass sinks do not have a sealant on them. You should expect them to patina over time. You may elect to have the sink rim and front apron in a Premium sealed finish.
Are your sinks sealed?
The front apron is sealed for our sinks with specified sealed finishes, but the bowl is only available in a natural, non-sealed, metal finish. The sink bowl is never sealed. We refer to this as a Designer style sink.
Will the sink change color, and why?
The internal sink bowl will change color because it will be a natural/living finish; we only offer natural finish metals on all sink basins. This is ideal for various reasons; it provides antimicrobial benefits, longevity, and self-healing benefits that will give it a longer life and help hide scratches/imperfections.
Can I use the sink for an outdoor kitchen setup?
Yes, our sinks will hold up in an outside setting.
