Product Overview

Zuhne built a beautiful sink when they made this Modena 30 inch Single Bowl Undermount Stainless Steel Kitchen sink. It has all of the benefits of an undermount while keeping the durability of stainless steel. The best part of this sink is its clean lines.

If you prefer a clean and modern look to your kitchen, then this is the sink for you. While there are many different types of kitchen sinks out there to consider, the contemporary elegance of this model speaks for itself. It will leave your attention free to focus on beautiful countertops and gorgeous cabinets while still ensuring that you have an amazing sink that will meet all of your needs. It has a very simple design that will look great in any kitchen.

The deep basin will make doing dishes easy, and you’ll have plenty of flexibility. This model comes with several accessories to allow you to arrange and rearrange the sink to meet your needs. No matter how you set it up, you’ll love having this sink in your kitchen.

16 Gauge Stainless Steel Construction

The materials that you sink is made of can have a big impact on your experience. Many materials are easy to scratch or easy to gouge, ding, or even chip. More importantly, the wrong material for a kitchen sink can make cleaning harder which will make mold and mildew easier to grow.

A sink that is properly constructed out of a good quality stainless steel can avoid these issues. This Modena model by ZUHNE offers the following benefits from their 16 Gauge Stainless Steel construction:

  • Rounded corners will make wiping out the basin quick and easy
  • Stainless steel won’t rust and provide protection against corrosion
  • 16 Gauge means that you won't need to worry about scratches or dents since it's industrial strength
  • Hygienic surface is nonporous to prevent offering an opportunity for bacteria to grow
  • Sloped basin with channels allows for water to drain quickly and completely
  • Insulation around the basin means that you won’t have to worry about noise or condensation with this sink

Considering all of the benefits of high-quality stainless steel, ZUHNE clearly made a great choice with their construction of this sink.

They even moved the drain back toward the rear of the sink. This lets the water drain from the sink in a quicker and more efficient manner, but it also keeps all of the plumbing tucked back against the wall so that you have extra space under your cabinet. The space under your sink is a great place to store cleaning supplies, and with the drain moved toward the rear, even your taller spray bottles will fit with ease.

A Deep Basin

A basin that is ten inches deep has a few clear benefits. Most obviously, you won't have to worry when trying to fit a large stockpot under your faucet. The ten inches of depth gives you plenty of clearance. That isn’t the only benefit to a deeper bowl in your sink, though. Not only does a deep sink give you extra workspace, but it will also reduce how much cleaning you have to do.

Deeper sinks allow any splashing to stay inside the sink. When you can reach deep into the bowl of the sink while washing, you won’t have to worry about the water that sprays up and off of a spoon to coat your whole sink with water. The nice high sides of this farmhouse sink will keep it all contained.

This is also helpful when you are washing larger pots and pans and need to dump the water out of them. It is easy to end up causing that water to splash up and over the sides of the sink when you’re using a shallower basin. When ZUHNE created this Modena model they gave you plenty of depth so that the water can splash up the side without flowing out and over the sides.


  • Made of durable stainless steel that is easy to clean
  • Beautiful clean lines will add an elegant touch to any modern or contemporary kitchen design
  • Thoughtful construction allows for quick and efficient draining and easy cleaning
  • The deep bowl gives this sink extra space and reduces the mess from splashing
  • Insulation will quiet your noise concerns


  • Since this is an undermount sink, you won’t want to pair it with a laminate countertop.


When you remodel your kitchen you likely take the time to create the image that you want your kitchen to have. While a sink should be a key part of that image, sometimes you just want it to be a functional background fixture. ZHUNE’s Modena 30-inch Single Bowl Undermount Stainless Steel Kitchen sink will keep your kitchen looking luxurious and provide you with the flexible functionality you need without taking the attention away from your cabinets and countertops.
