Cast Iron

An Overview of Cast Iron Sinks

Cast-Iron-Sink

Cast iron sinks provide a sturdy foundation for prepping food.

Cast iron sinks are formed by pouring molten iron into a cast (hence the name "cast iron") that forms the sink's shape. They are then coated with an enamel finish. This enamel finish can come in a variety of colors and it can also be fire polished to give the sink a glossy look.


Pros

  • Comes in many colors.
  • Remains quiet when water hits the sink's surface.


Cons

  • More likely to chip and stain than other options.
  • Because the material is heavy, the surrounding counter must be able to support a large amount of weight.


Price

About $300-$1,500.
