I'm putting in a new kitchen sink. I think I've narrowed choices down
to Kohler or Amer Std. The Kohler sinks are cast iron with enamel.
The American Std are "Americast", which appears to be the SPAM of
metals, and is their replacement for cast iron. It's supposed to be
enamel on steel together with a composite backing, weighes less, less
My conclusion at this point is the look of the Kohler is much better,
at least as viewed in the stores and I'm probably going to go with that
in white. The finish has a richer, deeper, authentic look to it.
Just wondering if others have any actual experience with durability,
chipping, scratch resistance, staining, etc of Kohler vs Americast?
Also, I still trying to decide between a large single bowl sink and one
with two bowls, one about 2/3 the other 1/3 in size. The sink is
33X22, and I have a garbage disposal and dishwasher. I know this is
basicly personal preference, but if anyone has any strong opinions one
way or the other, I'd be interested in hearing.
