Matte Hand Finished Stainless Steel Sinks (Looks just like Zinc) - Easily our most popular!

Looking for something that is easier to care for than typical stainless steel? Type 316 Marine Grade Matte Hand-Finished Stainless is the way to go. Are you dealing with pads on the bottom of your sink to protect it from scratches? I have a great solution.

Looking for a stainless sink that will look new forever? Looking for a kitchen sink made of zinc but you heard zinc is very soft? Well, you have just found both solutions. I have come up with a stainless that scratches and scuffs can be buffed out with a Scotchbrite Pad and looks exactly like zinc AND happens to be our least expensive option.


I came up with an idea a many years ago. This new hand finish solves many problems and, as a side benefit, looks awesome! The end result looks exactly like Zinc - without the pitfalls of using Zinc for a sink our counter top. I am sure you are aware zinc is very soft and will dent easily and can warp out of shape easily. When you scratch this stainless finish, it is simple to remove the scratch at home and obtain the original finish. That process is impossible with the typical brushed stainless used in most sinks.

We buy unfinished stainless and apply our own finish - the last step we apply a hand rubbed finish using a Red Scotch Brite pad to achieve a soft matte rustic look on the stainless steel. Just buff out minor scratches and blend in with the original finish using the Scotch Brite pad I send along with every sink.


Minor scratches and scuffs can be easily removed by using a red Scotch Brite pad that we send along with each sink.

Warmer look than brushed stainless (looks much like zinc) This finish is not quite as reflective as brushed stainless - however it is the exact same color. It will look great with your existing stainless appliances. You can order a sample online. Read about the benefits of 316L Stainless and order samples if you like!

316 marine grade stainless sinks 316 Marine Grade Stainless is more expensive because it provides a higher corrosion resistance, especially against chlorides and chlorinated solutions. This makes stainless 316 more desirable in applications where salt exposure is an issue. In such applications, 316 stainless will last longer than 304, providing you with extra years of life and usage. Second best has never been an option for my customers.
