Or S.S.S.S.S to those of you who also suffer from our obsession.
At our first house, when we remodeled the kitchen in 2010, we went with a single basin, deep, stainless steel sink. Mainly for aesthetics. We had been using an old enamel, double sink and didn't really spend much time considering the pros and cons of both types before making our next purchase.
2.3 seconds into our first use of our new sink, we were sold. It was amazing. We could fit ANYTHING in the tub (pasta pots, large Le Creuset Dutch ovens, later an infant). I've never really used a double sink for washing dishes, clean water on one side, dirty on the other. Um, hello dishwasher. So having a double bowl just proved to be cumbersome.
We sold that house, sadly including my sink and moved into an apartment. With a double basin, enamel sink and it was utter torture. Every dish I rinsed, every pot I filled, I would take a moment to dream of the day I would have a single basin again.
In 2010, they were everywhere. We bought our last one at Home Depot.
Apparently, I'm either out of style or stores in Oklahoma weren't selling them well and it was impossible to find a sink. I really wanted to see before I bought this item.
We did finally find one locally and just as before, I am in love. I'm telling you guys, this is the only way to wash and fill. I have a feeling all of the sinks in heaven will be just like this one.
