Herman Franke made his first stainless steel sink in 1936 in Switzerland. It was the beginning of the Franke group’s legacy, who have continued making quality sinks for the whole world to this day.

The Franke stainless steel sink is now a product with more than 80 years of excellence behind it.

While characteristics have changed, the basic concept has remained the same: a reliable basin for cleaning, cooking, and about 100 other jobs we do every single day.

With so much of our lives based in and around the kitchen sink, it's important to choose one in a tried and tested material.

Stainless steel sinks are classic kitchen fixtures that are as durable as, well, steel.

Stainless Steel Gauge: What does it mean?

An expert tip when looking at sink durability is to consider the gauge. The gauge of the steel refers to the thickness of the steel during assembly. It is measured by the gauge number – the lower the gauge number, the thicker the steel. While thicker is stronger, it is also heavier and generally used in larger sinks where the steel is pressed and stretched further, i.e. deeper wider bowls.

With proper maintenance and care, the lifetime of a stainless steel sink is easily the longest-lasting fixture in your kitchen. Add a sink grid to guard against wear and tear on the bottom, and it becomes the longest-lasting fixture in the whole house.
