Nantucket Sinks' Italian granite composite sinks are a new discovery as part of our Plymouth Collection. This 17 inch single bowl undermount is just the right for a bar or prep sink. With benefits long known to design professionals, this sink is 80% natural stone which helps it to be both resistant to stains and scratches. The nonporous surface is hygienic and helps to ward off microbes. Because of its material composition, it can withstand thermal shocks and temperatures up to 560 degrees Fahrenheit. The rear placement of the drain provides you with more under counter space for storage. Stone is naturally sound-absorbing for a quieter kitchen. Practical and beautiful color with metallic flecks!
