Product Overview

This sink is a great choice to give you a single bowl that is big enough to meet all of your needs without wasting any area on a divider. Even better, the American Standard Undermount 30×18 single sink is made out of the best material for kitchen sinks, stainless steel. It will look amazing with your kitchen décor, too.

No matter what your kitchen style maybe, having this beautiful undermount sink installed will enhance the elegance and give your kitchen an upgraded look without taking up any extra space. This American Standard sink fits in the same size cabinet as one of the smallest double bowl sinks, but since it doesn’t waste any space on a divider, you’ll end up with a lot of extra space for dishes and scrubbing.

American Standard is a name you can trust, with more kitchen sink reviews reflecting unwavering customer satisfaction. They use high-quality stainless steel and coat the bottom with sprayed-on insulation to keep the metal quiet no matter what you drop into the sink. You’ll love being able to just wipe from the counter straight into the sink since the undermount design makes the transition from counter to sink completely seamless.

Choosing the Best Material for Your Kitchen Sink

Kitchen sinks come in a range of materials. While each one has advantages and disadvantages, there is a clear standout. American Standard demonstrates their understanding of kitchen functionality and durability with their choice of material for this model of a kitchen sink.

Composite Granite

While these sinks can look beautiful and be easy to maintain, they are also easily cracked and damaged. If you choose to go with a composite granite sink, you’ll want to be sure to check it over very carefully when it has been delivered and again once it’s been installed. You’ll also need to be careful to use a cleaner that is appropriate for this natural stone or you can risk damaging the finish of it.

Cast Iron

Cast Iron is great for cookware. It heats evenly, seasons well, and had been a trusted standby for centuries for a reason. Part of its appeal is the weight of cast iron. It makes for super sturdy cookware. When you smelt it into a sink, though, that weight becomes a drawback.

Each gallon of water weighs eight pounds. Add that on top of the weight of a cast iron sink, and you’ll need to be sure that your under-sink cabinet is reinforced to support all of the extra weight. They are generally coated in enough enamel to guard against any worries you may have about rust, though.

Quartz

Quartz is one of your more high-end choices for a kitchen sink, but you don’t always get what you pay for. While these sinks will look beautiful and can pair perfectly with a matching countertop, they often show every little ding and scratch. Given how much you’ll pay for a sink made of quartz, you’ll likely be disappointed by the easily damaged finish.

Copper

When you think of kitchen sinks, you may not think of copper, but it does have some advantages. It won’t rust and is antimicrobial, but you’ll need to be careful not to use any chemicals on it. You’ll also want to pay very close attention to the quality of the copper sink.

Stainless Steel

There’s a reason that stainless steel is the most common material chosen for kitchen sinks. It’s readily available in a wide range of shapes and sizes and will resist staining and scratching. With this 30×18 inch single sink model, American Standard was sure to plan for easy cleaning, quick-draining, and quiet insulation, so you won’t need to worry about any potential drawbacks.

Since stainless steel is lightweight, you won’t need to reinforce your cabinet, and it’s a very durable material. You’ll be able to count on your stainless steel sink for many years without worrying about rust, either. Stainless steel is a reliable choice for a great kitchen sink.

Pros

  • Large single basin doesn’t waste space on dividers
  • Fits standard drains, so it’s easy to install
  • Elegant undermount to provide a seamless transition from the counter to the sink
  • Stainless steel construction means a reliable and durable sink that will last for many years
  • Great soundproofing to keep dropped utensils quiet

Cons

  • If you want a specific color of the sink, you may need to choose something other than stainless steel.

Summary

Every kitchen needs a sink. It’s often the center of the kitchen design. Choose this American Standard 30×18 Single Sink in Stainless Steel to be sure to get a beautiful and reliable sink that will meet all of your functional needs without any maintenance. It’s undermount design with adding an element of luxury that will pair well with any kitchen décor or design.
