After designing sinks for almost two decades, and having been awarded numerous sink design patents dating back as far as 1999, I have recently designed the most advanced and efficient workstation sink in the world - NexGen.
Why will your hand-made in the USA copper sink be less expensive than the imports in the long run? You won't ever have to replace it!
It is a sad testimonial that the copper sink business is reminicent of the 1960's used car business. There is so much false or inentionally omitted information out there that it makes my head spin. Many copper sink companies intentionally do not tell you where their copper sinks are made and do everything possible to give the "illusion" their sinks are made in the USA. The first thing you should do is call and make sure the sink is really made in the USA. Also, ask where the copper comes from. One such company claims their copper sinks are made of 14 gauge cold rolled copper. Our customer was given the impression their sinks were made in the USA. It turns out all of their sinks are made in China! Another company claims to be made in the USA but after some investigating you will find their copper is imported. Trust your instincts. As they say... Trust, then Verify. Make sure the information is in writing either on the website - next to the sink you select or indicated on every page of the site. Another USA manufacturer mixes locally made and imported sinks on their website - very confusing. Yet another site has such microscopically small photos that you cannot see the defects in the construction. My contention is this: If you are not proud of what you sell, why the heck do you sell it? This is the ultimate misdirection found on a website: "All of our copper is domestic grade, meaning it comes directly from a supplier here in the United States of America." I am willing to bet that the copper comes from outside the US. If you see that comment, ask where the copper is actually made. Get written proof. If the copper sink retailers are proud of what they sell, proudly say the sink is made in Mexico, China, India, Turkey or wherever! Most importantly, ask for references that have had their copper sinks installed for over a year. Talk to them on the phone!
This is another way to see how long a company has been around and whether or not they hide their registration information. Type their domain name (www.rachiele.com) at www.whois.com. If you insert our domain, you will see we have been online since 10-25-1998, I believe we were the first copper and stainless sink company online - by several years. You may see coppersinks.com as registered on 11-20-1999. I purchased that domain on that date. I sold it to the current owner on 5-4-2012 for quite a high dollar.
This is my site wide statement. Every copper and stainless sink we offer on our site is made in Apopka, FL using domestic virgin domestic copper and domestic stainless steel.
I can guarantee this... If you have heard that copper sinks are a pain in the neck to care for, they were not talking about mine! Your copper sink will require little or no maintenance, no drying after each use (like the imports require) no waxing and no worries about acidic foods, abrasives or denting. Your copper sink is designed to be heavily used. In contrast, listen to the quality disclaimer of virtually all imported copper sinks. When you order an import, your sink could vary significantly from the size you order! "They" tell you the reason is because they are hand made. (This is metal not bread) Really? Since when does hand made mean poor quality? My copper sinks sinks are hand made; and when you order a 36" sink it measures 36", not 35 1/2" or 36 1/2". We are not baking bread folks, this is metal and it doesn't rise or shrink.
When you invest in a Rachiele sink, you are investing in a worry free sink made in the USA. Use your copper sink like a sink! You don't have to wax it like a car. Read why
Rachiele has lead the entire industry since late 1998 with firsts and exclusives such as: single bowl sinks with rear corner drains, retrofit farmhouse sinks, self healing copper interiors, ergonomically designed sinks, single bowl corner sinks, copper and stainless showers, unique copper patinas, textured stainless steel (Millennia) Rustic Matte Stainless Steel, workstation sinks (Signature Series. Evolution, NexGen), Add-a-Bowl ability to instantly convert a single bowl sink into a double bowl sink, then back again - and much more. These and many more ideas did not exist before Rachiele.
Imagine life before the smart phone. Imagine life before the television. Double bowl sinks and sinks with center or rear center drains were designed way back then and they never evolved. If your cookie sheets, pots, pans and platters do not fit completely in your sink... your sink is obsolete! If you are preparing your vegetables, meats and poultry on a cutting board adjacent to your sink, your sink is obsolete.
A simple drain location change, (rear corner) combined with a single bowl, fixes the issue with large pots, pans, platters and trays and allows you to use my sink like a double bowl sink. Wash on the right, set off on the left. My sinks have a generous slope to the drain. A Rachiele single bowl sink with a rear corner drain allows you to place large items (cookie sheets, platters, refrigerator shelves and more) flat down in the sink for washing and rinsing without covering the drain. None of those items will fit in a double bowl sink! Also, there is no logical reason to have a drain in the center or rear center of a sink - yet 95% of all sink manufacturers still cling to that obsolete design.
Our Signature Series and NexGen Workstation Sinks are the "Smart Sinks" of today. Small interior steps or ledges allow for a metal multi purpose grid to sit below the top of the sink adjacent to a cutting board. All food preparation is now done on top of the sink. Place items on the grid to rinse, move one at a time to the cutting board to prepare, then sweep into a bowl waiting in the sink. Imagine this... no more wiping down counter tops! All of your food preparation is done on the sink. Food preparation becomes something to look forward to. The sink activity has evolved from a chore to a pleasure. Clean up is just as amazing. Wash on the right, set off on the grid (the multi purpose grid also fits on the bottom) to dry. "Your life is about to get a little bit easier"
9,900+ happy customers love their Rachiele Sinks and most of our business comes from referrals. The bulk of our business is driven by referrals and repeat business. Rachiele is the original custom copper and stainless sink company - leading the industry for almost two decades!
We are a custom manufacturer of custom copper sinks, stainless sinks, hoods and counter tops and we focus on quality, not quantity. While most sink companies build more sinks in a week than we do in a year, our product stands alone. All are manufactured in the USA in my factory in Apopka, Florida.. We also offer solid copper drains and disposal flanges for kitchen sinks. Everything is offered direct to the public at factory direct pricing. If you are interested in faucets, hand painted lavatory sinks, visit our sister company, TheUSAHome.com, for great prices and free shipping. Everything on that site is made in the USA.
The photographs do not do my sinks justice. Even when we send a photo of a sink just prior to shipping, our customers regularly tell us that the sink looks significantly better than they expected. This is a recent quote from a customer who just received their sink: "You're right. Way more stunning when you're there looking at the real thing."
