Granite is one of the most durable and hard-wearing materials that you can choose for your kitchen sink. While most kitchen appliance brands boast similar benefits of their granite sinks, each one has spent years perfecting its own granite materials. Here is a quick guide to the different types of granite sinks that you can find:

Franke Granite Sinks
Fragranite is a material exclusive to Franke granite sinks, manufactured from 80% quartz. It offers up a very durable surface, with a wide range of benefits including:

  • Germ proof
  • Scratch proof
  • Impact proof
  • Stain proof
  • Fade proof
  • Heat proof

Schock Granite Sinks
Schock produces granite kitchen sinks with two types of materials that are made from 80% quartz: CRISTADUR® and CRISTALITE® PLUS. This material is known for being particularly resistant to dirt, as it is completely non-porous and leaves no room for bacteria. There are many other benefits to Schock granite sinks, such as:

  • Impact resistant
  • Stain resistant
  • Heat proof
  • Food safe
  • Prohygenic
  • Dirt repellent
  • Odour free

Astracast Granite Sinks

Astracast granite sinks are made with the hard-wearing ROK material, which is manufactured from 90% quartz crystaline particles. This material sets itself apart from other granite because it has a high concentration of quartz at the surface – where the durability is needed most. As such, Astracast granite sinks offer up the following benefits:

  • Heat resistant
  • Scratch resistant
  • Stain resistant
  • Impact resistant
  • Easy to clean
  • Antibacterial

How to Clean Granite Sinks
Since granite kitchen sinks are resistant to staining and germs, they are quite easy to clean and care for. After every use, you should do a quick rinse and dry of the surface to prevent any build-up of grease or dirt. If you happen upon any tougher stains, all you need is a gentle cleaner. In many cases, dishwasher soap, a bleach/water solution or vinegar/water solution should be enough.
