      Can I install this sink in a laminate countertop?
          Our undermount sinks are best suited for solid surfaces countertop materials like marble concrete, soapstone and granite. Not well suited for laminate or tile counters which have too many weak points along seams and grout lines to support the weight of the sink.

      What should I use to clean the sink?
          We recommend using mild soap and water for everyday cleaning as well as stainless steel cleaners designed for cleaning stainless steel specifically. A popular option is Barkeeper's Friend and a 3M Fine Scotch Brite Pad

      Are there any products that should be avoided when cleaning my sink?
          We recommend avoiding cleaners with harsh chemicals like chlorine, bleach, ammonia as these items can cause damage to the sink surface.

      How can I remove scratches from my sink?
          Scratches are inevitable in any sink material, including stainless steel. These are merely usage scratches over time, these scratches will become uniform with the sink's grain and blend into the overall finish of your sink with proper cleaning. Most minor scratches can be softened with a fine (white) 3M Scotch Brite pad, or 3M Scotch Brite Natural Fiber Non-Scratch Scour Pad, accompanied by a deep cleansing agent such as Bar Keepers Friend.

      What does "KBU" stand for?

      Can stainless steel sinks rust?
          No. Typically, when red spots appear on a Stainless Steel Sink it is simply surface discoloration due to iron and mineral deposits in the water. This is usually taken care of permanently with a stainless steel polish and/or cleaner when used according to the directions of the cleaning product. Products such as Bar Keeper's friend and a fine 3M Scotch Brite pad are both great options.
