Product Overview

This undermount kitchen sink is the perfect combination of a large, single basin and the extra convenience of a double basin. The Kraus Standart PRO Kitchen Stainless Steel Sink has a rounded apron and two basins to make your kitchen look like a work of art while functioning like a chef’s dream.

The rounded apron gives the front edge of the sink a beautiful finish that will pair well with your whole kitchen design. The clean lines and stainless shine allow it to blend in perfectly with a modern or contemporary design. The gentle roundness to the apron gives it a soft curve that pairs well with more classic or country kitchen designs.

Whatever the design of your kitchen, this undermount sink will turn your dreaded kitchen clean-up into a dream. You may choose to stack all of your dirty baking sheets, plates, and pots in the larger side and use the other side as a prep sink to clean some fruit for dessert. Or you could hand wash family heirloom china by filling one basin with suds while saving the other side for rinsing. Either way, this Kraus Standart PRO sink will meet your needs with beauty and durability that you’ll love.

So Many Basin Choices

If you have already tackled the tough decision to go with a double basin sink instead of a single basin, you may find that your decision-making process isn’t done, yet. Once you know that you value having two separate places to use your faucet, you’ll need to think about how you plan to use them and what style of double basin sink will best fit your kitchen needs. Plus, if you don’t already know how to install a kitchen sink, you may need professional guidance for that as well.

Double basin sinks give you a great deal of flexibility. They make washing dishes easier by allowing you a basin for washing and a rinse basin without having to set up a plastic tub. Double basin sinks are also great for those times when you end up with a sink full of dirty dishes, but you really need to clean some fruit or veggies. No one wants to clean on top of dirty dishes, but you also may not want to deal with the dishes right at that moment. With two basins, you can leave your dirty dishes and clean your next course, too.

50/50 Double Basin Sinks

Some double basin sinks have space evenly divided between the two basins. These are called 50/50 sinks. If you don’t have a dishwasher and want equal space in both sinks, this option can be appealing. Unfortunately, because space is evenly divided, many people end up frustrated that their large baking sheets don’t fit in either side of their sink.

60/40 Double Basin Sinks

A 60/40 double basin sink like this Kraus Standart PRO model is a perfect balance. It has two basins so that one can be used for dishes while the other remains open, clean, and available for uses like preparing produce or getting a fresh glass of water. At the same time, you won’t have to give up the larger basin that you would get with a single basin sink.

Since a 60/40 sink dedicates 60% of the basin space to one side of the sink and 40% to the basin on the other side of the sink, you have one very large basin on the 60% side. This is ideal for those large baking sheets to casserole dishes that may not fit in a 50/50 double basin sink. While this larger basin side is often considered an advantage of single basin sinks, Krause gives you those features without forcing you to give up a basin.
