The epiGranite series of kitchen sinks from Ruvati sets a new trend for the home kitchen. If you are looking beyond stainless steel, and want to add some color and character to your kitchen design, the Ruvati epiGranite sinks are an elegant choice. There are many reasons you should consider these Italian crafted sinks as a welcome addition to your home.
To begin, the sink is constructed from 80% crushed natural granite. This gives the sink extreme durability while maintaining the look of real stone. Unlike other brands, Ruvati colors their epiGranite sinks all the way though for a consistent look that doesn't discolor. This isn't the case with all brands.
This isn't your grandmothers sink! EpiGranite is one of the coolest materials on the market. The surface of the sink undergoes a proprietary treatment making it resistant to stains, bacteria and extreme temperatures up to 536 degrees Fahrenheit. The sink comes with a basket strainer drain assembly that traps food waste and is easy to empty into the trash. Last but not least, Ruvati epiGranite sinks comes in 8 different color options ranging from warm Caribbean Sand to elegant Black Galaxy. Now you can have a kitchen that truly reflects your style and personality.
As far as maintenance is concerned, this depends a lot on the material you choose. Black porcelain can show smudges, and black metal may not be the best choice if you have hard water, but black granite composite sinks get great reviews. Proper cleaning is always important when dealing with sinks not made of your standard stainless steel. For best practices, look below.
For standard cleaning, we recommend using any non-abrasive cleaner, such as Bar Keepers Friend, Soft Scrub/Soft Scrub with Bleach, or standard liquid dish soap. To eliminate any water spots or soap film buildups, rinse and wipe the sink dry with a clean, soft cloth.
Removing Stains and Scuff Marks:
Bar Keepers Friend should remove most stubborn stains with multiple cleanings. If you continue to have trouble, use a mild abrasive cleanser, along with a soft scouring pad. For more stubborn stains, a solution of 50% bleach, 50% water can be used, but only in these situations. DO NOT USE THIS FOR DAILY CLEANING. Let the solution sit in the bottom of the sink for one hour, then scrub and rinse extremely well, to make sure there is no bleach left in the sink. Dark colored sinks must be rinsed thoroughly with hot water.
Important reminder: Always test any stain removers in a small, non-visible location
As you can see, a black sink can make a gorgeous addition to your kitchen and with proper care, you can enjoy your new sink for years to come.
