Steel sinks withstand daily wear, heavy use, extremely high temperatures, and even heavy pots without showing much distress.
Porcelain, with its more substantial look, is pretty strong. But be cautious with sharp objects or heavy pots; they might chip or crack the sink.
Stainless Steel: These sinks are low maintenance. Cleaning a stainless steel sink is a breeze. Just some warm water and dish soap, and you’re good.
Porcelain, especially the white kitchen sink models, looks stunning but might show stains from things like coffee grounds if not cleaned quickly.
Heat and Stain Resistance: Another bonus with stainless steel is its resistance to heat. Drop a hot pot in, and it won’t flinch.
