With Ruvati, there are several ways to minimize mess and make the most out of the space in the heart of your home.Cutting BoardColanderFoldable Dish RackDecorative Drain Cover What Are The Benefits of a Ruvati Fiamma Fireclay Sink?ExpandStrength and DurabilityIn Italy, the clay is fired at an extremely high temperature of 2900 degrees Fahrenheit for 28 hours giving the solid sink exceptional strength and durability. During this process, the exterior of the sink fuses with the interior, providing an enamel surface that is completely resistant to chips, cracks, abrasions, and scratches. It is also impact resistant to high temperatures, hot water, acids, and common household chemicals. These properties make Ruvati fireclay sinks a superior choice compared to alternative materials like cast-iron enamel or ceramic sinks which can easily chip or crack.Unmatched DesignThe 9″ internal bowl depth makes it easy to stack dishes or clean large pots and pans. Some sinks in the Fiamma collection are also reversible, which means one side is smooth and flat and the other side has a decorative, fluted design so it’s up to you to decide how to install based on your preference. Other sinks may also come with an offset dain. Whether the drain is configured to the center, right, or left side, the bottom is sloped at an angle towards the drain for optimal drainage. The offset drain also creates more space in the cabinet under the sink. Why is Stainless Steel the Superior Choice?ExpandPorcelain, cast iron, and acrylic sinks can be easily dulled and damaged by sharp objects and impacts like dropping heavy objects or not handling the sink correctly during installation. However, stainless steel is an alloy made up of many materials, such as chromium and nickel, making it more durable and resistant to daily use. In fact, stainless steel is very resistant to rust, heat, stains, odors, peeling, cracking, chipping, and many chemicals.However, not all stainless steel is created equal. You may notice when shopping around that most stainless steel products will have a gauge measurement next to them. A gauge is simply the measurement of how thick the stainless steel is. The lower the number, the thicker and stronger the sink is.Most Ruvati sinks, like the RVH8000 pictured to the left, are made from a superior 16 gauge stainless steel, unlike most other sinks that are made from weaker gauges.Another quality that puts Ruvati sinks above the rest is a special undercoating on each sink that prevents condensation damage to the areas around your sink. This will ensure your peace of mind that your Ruvati sink won’t cause damage to your pipes, floors, or under-cabinet area.Hassle-free CleaningAll sinks are going to require some degree of cleaning and upkeep; however, stainless steel, yet again, ranks at the top for easy-to-clean materials. Check out our Sink Care Guide to see more on how to care for your Ruvati kitchen sink.Not only do stainless steel sinks clean-up easily, but the combination of materials used to create the alloy of stainless steel, much as the name suggests, means your sink will not stain or rust over time. To prove it, we’ve added a Lifetime Rust-free Guarantee to each of our sinks for even more peace of mind.Sound DampeningWhile stainless steel sinks have many positive aspects to them, there is one con: noise. An ordinary stainless steel sink can create quite a ruckus when placing dishes and pots in it. This can not only be aggravating but also disruptive to the rest of your household.Not to worry, Ruvati has solved this problem by adding heavy-duty sound guard padding to each sink, which makes the sink much quieter than the average kitchen sink.AffordableUnlike other materials, stainless steel remains one of the lowest-priced materials for sinks, while not sacrificing quality and style, proving that sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too. At Ruvati, we do everything with our customers in mind, so even if you are on a tight budget, stainless steel kitchen sinks are the ideal choice for your kitchen update.StylishThe look of a stainless steel sink is one that never goes out of style and, best of all, stainless steel finish goes with just about everything. Whether you have a super traditional or modern kitchen, a Ruvati stainless steel kitchen sink, like the RVH9200 pictured to the right, will provide the perfect complement to any kitchen.Each Ruvati kitchen sink features a luxurious satin finish that not only adds to the sink’s beauty, but also provides a great way to hide any water stains, finger prints or small scratches that may occur. What Are The Benefits of a Slope Bottom® Sink?ExpandAfter hearing countless complaints around the industry regarding difficult drainage, Ruvati has revolutionized the kitchen sink with the addition of our slope bottom® sink design. From our widely-popular dual-tier workstation sinks to our elegant granite composite collection, any product featuring the Ruvati slope bottom® is unmatched in design and function.Unmatched DesignGone are the days of forcing water or food particles towards your garbage disposal or having to clean your sink after cleaning your dishes. Our slope bottom® sinks have a 2.5% (1-inch) slant that allows for water to flow directly towards the drain. Not only does this leave less cleanup for you, it will leave your sink dry after use. Make your kitchen work for you when you purchase a slope bottom® sink from Ruvati. Offset DrainIn addition to the slope bottom, these Ruvati sinks will also feature an offset drain. Offset drain kitchen sinks from Ruvati offer an innovative solution for perfect drainage and optimal space. Since the drain is located on one side of the sink, there is more efficient storage both inside and under the sink. You will now have more cabinet space for large household items — like a garbage can or various cleaning supplies. Depending on the installation, sinks with an offset drain are also reversible so you can install it with the drain on the left or right side. Sapele Wood vs. Bamboo Cutting BoardsExpandWood surfaces will not dull your knife easily. Wood is also naturally antibacterial. Even though plastic is easy to clean, the surface attracts bacteria, algae and mold, especially under wet or moist conditions. In contrast, wood is naturally bactericidal, as shown by numerous scientific studies that compare bacterial growth on plastic versus wood cutting boards. These two properties make wood boards the surface of choice for kitchen pros.Wood vs. PlasticAs people begin to realize the superiority of wood over plastic as a cutting surface, more and more are switching over from plastic to wood boards. The benefits of wood boards come at a small price though:Wood cutting boards are naturally more susceptible to water damage than plastic, so they require a little more effort in care and maintenanceWood boards, depending on the wood species and the level of craftsmanship involved, can be considerably more expensive than plastic boardsThis is where bamboo comes into play.Wood vs. BambooThe only reason cutting board manufacturers choose bamboo over wood is price. Bamboo is cheap. Bamboo, as a raw material, costs a fraction of hardwood. Bamboo surfaces look and feel like wood, but bamboo is not a hardwood. Bamboo is a grass — anyone who is familiar with woodworking will tell you so. That’s why you won’t see bamboo in the lumber section of your local hardware store. Bamboo is cheap and widespread due to how quick and easy it is to cultivate. It flourishes in places like Asia where a lot of today’s mass manufacturing takes place. Trees such as oak or maple can take decades to grow to lumber maturity, but bamboo plantations can be ready to harvest in less than a year.As a hard grass, bamboo lacks some properties of hardwood chopping surfaces that we mentioned earlier. Bamboo does not have the same level of natural antibacterial properties as hardwood. If you leave a bamboo board wet for a few days, you will see black mildew growing on the surface. Bamboo fibers are also tough on the knife surface, making bamboo boards twice as likely to dull the sharpness of your knife with regular use. Both hardwood and bamboo cannot be left wet or moist for extended periods; the water will eventually damage the wood. However, bamboo will warp and crack in wet conditions much faster than hardwood. Given these properties, even though bamboo cutting boards are cheaper and a lot more common, you will never see professional chefs or serious home cooks ever use bamboo cutting boards with their favorite knives.The Superiority of Sapele WoodIn our quest to find the perfect wood cutting board for our workstation sinks, we sampled many different hardwoods. Sapele came out as a clear winner. It’s a wood that is similar to Mahogany and has a beautiful natural color and grain pattern. In fact, it’s the wood of choice as a trim for luxury cars and handcrafted guitars. It has a naturally dark color, which means we don’t need to use any artificial stain on it. Most importantly, it’s a very dense wood that is quite resistant to water damage. It’s also relatively fast growing and sustainable.Just like any other hardwood, you still have to take proper care of it. Do not leave it soaked in water or put it in the dishwasher. Oil it regularly (using food-grade mineral oil or cooking oil) to keep the wood sealed and conditioned, especially after washing with soap. As you use your wood cutting board, it will develop knife marks and scratches. This is normal. We make our workstation sink cutting boards reversible so you can keep one side of the board for regular use and the other side free of scratches. When not in use, you can leave the clean side up. After a few months of use, if you want to remove the knife marks and scratches, you can sand down the entire surface and reseal the wood using food-grade mineral oil. What Are The Benefits of a Low Divide Sink?ExpandIn addition to our large assortment of standard single and double sinks, Ruvati is proud to offer an innovative solution to space and efficiency with our low-divide double bowl kitchen sinks. With a center divider that sits 4 inches below the top of the sink, you have the convenience of a divided sink combined with the spaciousness of a single bowl sink. You can now wash large pots or cookie sheets with ease while keeping separation amongst dishes when necessary.While our Urbana collection focuses on our stainless steel, low divide options, we also offer this style in granite composite material, with workstation capabilities, and most installation options. Find a unique solution to your kitchen needs that fits within your style desires. Ruvati’s Foldable Drying RackExpandUnique to RuvatiAs workstation sinks continue to evolve, so do their accessories. At Ruvati, we created a patented product that takes the typical workstation roll-up rack to the next level. The improved design of our foldable drying rack is far more functional and heavy duty. You can use it for drying dishes on top of your sink or as a platform to place a pot as you fill it up with water. With Ruvati’s foldable drying rack, you can do a lot more on your sink.Unmatched DesignThe foldable drying rack from Ruvati fits on the top track of your workstation ledge and is ideal as a dish-drying rack. Instead of small, round rods, this rack is designed with square metal bars for more strength and a flat surface allowing you to easily place items on it without having them roll off.Constructed of stainless steel held together by a durable silicone frame, the rack can hold weight up to 50 lbs. When fully unfolded, the rack is 12″ wide. It can be folded in half or in a quarter. The foldable design allows the rack to be tightly folded — unlike the roll-up style racks which tend to unroll easily.Built to LastThe bars are constructed of thick, rust-resistant T-304 grade stainless steel which makes it easy to keep clean. Roll-up racks made of silicone-coated bars can harbor mold and bacterial growth — especially in wet conditions. High-grade T-304 stainless steel is naturally more hygienic and easier to keep clean. 16 Gauge vs. 18 Gauge Stainless Steel SinkExpandWhen you’re in the market for a new stainless steel kitchen sink, it’s difficult to know what exactly you should be looking for.When you’re considering purchasing a stainless steel sink, the steel is measured by gauge. Thinner stainless steel has a higher gauge number and thicker stainless steel has a lower number. For example, an 18-gauge sink is more durable and more expensive than a 22-gauge stainless steel sink. When shopping for a stainless steel kitchen sink, the sinks made with thicker steel provides greater durability and longer wear and tear. They are more expensive than the thinner steel, so consider your choices wisely.THIN GAUGESStainless steel made of thin gauges is adequate for small sinks. However, larger sinks are more efficient and functional when they are thicker. The least expensive stainless steel kitchen sinks on the market are 22-gauge or 0.0312 inches of thickness. Stainless steel kitchen sinks made from this gauge are more susceptible to bowing, denting, and dings. A 22-gauge sink may not be an optimal choice if you have a garbage disposal. The garbage disposal will vibrate when you turn it on. Choosing a 20-gauge, which is 0.0375 inches, is a better option. Sinks with 22-gauge steel are perfect for recreational vehicles, small bar sinks, or in cabins.THICKER GAUGESStainless steel kitchen sinks that are 19-gauge and maintain a standard size are at the lower end of the price scale for kitchen sinks. A better quality stainless steel kitchen sink is the 18-gauge, which is 0.0500 inches. Many home improvement choices recommend 16 to 18 gauges as a good choice for a stainless steel kitchen sink. The more costly, a 16-gauge stainless sinks is often touted as a luxury sink and are 0.0625 inches thick.COMMERCIAL GAUGESMany stainless steel kitchen sinks used by restaurants and other commercial establishments are typically 14 to 16 gauge. These thick stainless steel sinks, intended for repeated and hard use, are often very large and deep, which calls for a thicker stainless steel. They often have square corners that many find unattractive for home sinks.
