Stainless steel kitchen sinks is the most popular material for kitchen sinks today. Along with being easy to clean and install it come in a very wide range of prices. On the downside is that it can scratch, dent, and scold easily if not taken care of properly. Also it intensifies the sound of running water and the garbage disposal because it is not as good at deadening sound as some other materials are. If stainless steel is what you are going for make sure you check the gauge of the material. The lower the gauge of metal the thicker it is which will help minimize the downsides of stainless steel. One other option to look for in your next stainless steel kitchen sink that can help is an undercoating that further muffles sound.
In terms of mounting options, you can opt for surface, under-mount or set-in sinks. Surface-mounted sinks are dropped into a pre-cut hole in the worktop surface, and offer a good all-round mounting option for many different types of worktop material. For a subtler touch, you might consider an under-mount sink, which is installed below the counter and creates no rim between sink and worktop surface. This makes the area around the sink easier to clean. Finally, set-in sinks are built into the worktop and are made of the same material, which offers a seamless aesthetic that works perfectly with granite.
Soapstone has been used for ages through out the world. Setting hot pots or pans directly in your soapstone sink will not affect the surface. Soapstone is non-porous, it is resistant to bacteria and chemicals. Soapstone is a very durable material, but it can be scratched, usually they can be sanded out.
