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.
Solid surface sinks are becoming very popular as they are permanently bonded into the kitchen countertops, they are easy to clean and scratch and stain resistant, won't trap dirt, mold and mildew. Another benefit is germs and odors can't penetrate into the material.
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.
