How do stainless steel sinks compare with other materials such as cast iron, acrylic or porcelain?

Stainless steel is an alloy made up of many materials such as chromium and nickel, making it more durable and resistant to daily use than cast iron, porcelain, and acrylic. It is resistant to rust, heat,  stains, odors, peeling, cracking, chipping & most chemicals and is also easier to clean than most other materials. While stainless steel doesn’t come in as many color options as other materials, it will maintain its shine and look new for many years. Ruvati stainless steel sinks are equipped with heavy duty sound guard padding and undercoating to reduce noise.

Porcelain, cast iron, and acrylic can be easily dulled and damaged by sharp objects and impacts like dropping pots or pans. Cast iron sinks can be very heavy, making it difficult to install. Porcelain and acrylic sinks can break or crack if not handled carefully.
