Butler sinks, farmhouse sinks or apron sinks are becoming more and more popular in today’s kitchens. They provide ample space for various cooking activities which just makes your life so much easier. Butler sinks come in various materials; engineered stone is more friendly towards glass since it does not break that easily, however, a more robust sink made from fire-clay with acid resistant wastes would be a better option for industrial situations. Lab sinks are actually butler sinks but are made from fire-clay. Initially they were used in hospitals and laboratories and now they have become the central feature in any kitchen. Note our stainless steel butlers are hand made and do not have pressed bowls. Corners might be a little rougher than pressed bowls

Your oven can reach up to 250°C, it will stain the resin in the product and depending on how long you left the pot on the sink, the deeper the discolouration will be. This type of discolouration is not…
