You already do double (and triple… and quadruple…) duty in the kitchen. Shouldn’t your sink?
For the occasional cook and the professional chef alike, the sink is arguably the kitchen’s most important feature. When you choose wisely, the right kitchen sink can make your everyday food preparation and cleanup smooth, easy, and even enjoyable.
Kitchen sinks are now available in a dizzying array of configurations to support every type of cook.
A basic sink may include a simple cutting board full or partial insert. This one shows that your decorative bar sink can also be used as additional counter space, an important consideration when deciding if you have enough space for another sink.
Some cutting boards do double duty as well by including colanders or other kitchen necessities. This one allows users to chop and rinse vegetables without using an inch of counter or sink space (or flooding the floor):
Another way to save counter and cabinet space: do away with your drain board.
This smart sink is contoured with ledges to let cooks rest a grid at a more reachable height, effectively doubling sink capacity and preventing back strain (no need to bend over to reach the bottom of the sink when washing dishes):
Some sinks are real workhorses, designed for heavy culinary use. Sliding cutting boards, drain boards, strainers, tilt-out storage, and even knife holders turn a sink into a convenient and flexible cooking station.
